Incorporating a Sense of Tradition into Modern Wedding Jewelry

For those brides who want to incorporate traditional elements into their modern style wedding, there are ways to seamlessly integrate the two. The old English poem “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe” has become customary for brides and is a great way to add some traditional elements to your modern wedding. The symbolism behind the different items is intended to bring luck, fortune, hope, and a sense of the past to the wedding. Handcrafted bridal jewelry is a fun and elegant way to incorporate these traditional elements into your modern wedding.

  • Something Old – A wonderful way to keep the family history alive is to incorporate something from the bride’s family or past into the wedding attire. If you’ve got an heirloom like a veil, it can be temporarily attached to a custom crystal tiara or comb for a beautiful effect.
  • Something New – Customized crystal bridal jewelry sets can serve to represent the optimism and hope that you have for your marriage. Weddings are events that mark the beginning of a new and often wonderful time in a woman’s life, and the jewelry that you choose should be just as beautiful, making Swarovski crystal an excellent choice for your “something new”.
  • Something Borrowed – This was traditionally borrowed from a happily married couple close to the bride in the hopes that the fortune that brought them happiness would rub off on the new wedding. This could be jewelry, a veil, a comb, or almost anything else. You can temporarily attach your borrowed item to custom crystal jewelry or veils to really make them special.
  • Something Blue – Blue represented faith and loyalty and was a popular color for wedding gowns in the past. Today, brides often use blue crystal jewelry like something blue anklets or garters. Some brides will even paint their nails blue or get a blue temporary tattoo.
  • Silver Sixpence – This was an old English form of currency that was supposed to represent a hope for prosperity in the future. Silver can easily be incorporated into jewelry. Necklaces are a great way to show off your silver. You can get a lovely silver necklace for a sweetheart neckline, a silver back necklace, or even a silver bracelet or anklet adorned with stunning Swarovski crystals.
