New modern something-blue accents

January 18, 2018

 

 

If you're a future bride you probably hear about this tradition that comes from an Old English rhyme "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and a Sixpence in your Shoe".

The old item provided protection for the baby to come. The item borrowed from another happy bride provided good luck. The colour blue was a sign of fidelity, purity and love. A sixpence coin was a symbol of prosperity ( a British custom).

If you search an alternative for your something blue touch I have create a line of accessories that differ from the usual while keeping alive the tradition. Take a look to our selection of blue pieces.

 

 A blue accented floral crown

Our richly adorned hair crown is hand painted by hand in soft green shades as real leaves, adding sparkling crystal charms and bright freshwater pearls to give a jeweled touch to the entire piece. The flowers have a darker blue shade center that lightens outwards to give a more natural effect and the overall look in the hair is a bohemian real-like floral crown.

Delicate forget-me-not hairpin

If you are searching something to adorn a bun or up-do hairstyle this floral hairpin is a lovely addition. I was inspired to forget-me-not flowers when I created this piece and enriched with pearls and crystals are turned into a refined jewelry that accomplish and enhance a romantic hairstyle. I admitt that is one of my favorite pieces from the new collection.
