Something blue – bracelet and or necklace
An old English rhyme, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”. Started what is now one of the most followed wedding traditions of them all. Wearing a touch of blue on your wedding day is not just common but thought of by many in Western cultures to be sine qua non (to be essential and indisputable). The tone and shade of the touch of blue is of course up to you though. There are many precious gems and stones in blue shades. The way each stone is in its raw form, how it is cut and how it is set will all affect the exact color of each stone. Any of these can be incorporated into necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. We have two Tacori sky blue topaz wedding jewelry pieces below that we are sure will be part of your 5 things to wear.
Now the first little something blue we are introducing is a Tacori cascading gem bracelet. It is the first of a sky blue topaz set we are featuring form their Island Rains collection.

As Audrey Hepburn has been quoted with saying, “The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” It is your big day and we are sure that regardless of whether you wear all 5 of the things to wear on your wedding day or just this one you will be stunning.
