To bring luck on her wedding day, it's traditional for the bride to wear “the four somethings”: something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. So we’ve decided to select a few stunning pieces to help you complete this traditional wedding criteria. If you aren’t heir to any family heirlooms, it can be tricky to fulfill the old part of the somethings. As an alternative to genuine antiques, why not represent the old by accessorising your bridal outfit with a vintage inspired piece of jewellery. This beautiful 9ct white gold bracelet pairs classic pearls with delicate rose quartz, not only achieving a traditional look, but also embracing the flourishing trend of the Blushing Bride, which sees pink as a key wedding colour this season.
Fully embrace the new by accessorising your wedding dress with one of our recent Swarovski lines such as these Swarovski Vanilla rose gold-plated drop earrings. Boasting striking faceted Jet Hematite crystal, these earrings are in line with the latest and much debated trend of the 'dressed in black' bride. From wedding fairs to celebrity nuptials such as Shenae Grimes and Josh Beech, black has made a striking and unexpected leap into the wedding limelight. If you aren’t bold enough to go all out in a black dress and bouquet like Avril Lavigne, then these earrings are perfect for a dash of dark sparkle to give your wedding look that sultry edge.
If you’re a September baby or having a September wedding, what better way to fulfill your something blue than with a rich, glistening sapphire. As the birthstone of September, an item of sapphire jewellery will hold that extra special personal memory, whether it is because it’s representative of you, or commemorative of the time of your wedding. This 9ct white gold created sapphire pendant will add a lustrous pop of colour to your wedding dress, styled in a chic, contemporary design that you can wear again and again after your wedding.
