For the traditional bride, finding your “something blue” is an essential part of wedding planning. If you’re stuck on what to choose, you may consider jewelry as the perfect statement piece. Jewelry is an excellent option because it can add a subtle touch of color with your white dress and can last for years after your special day.
At Noe’s Jewelry, we have many different options for blue jewelry pieces that are chic and timeless. Our local jewelers can help you find something unique and memorable to help make your big day even more extraordinary.
Why You Should Choose Jewelry for Your Something Blue
There are many reasons why you should choose jewelry for your something blue. Jewelry is exceptional and made to withstand many years. Even after your wedding day, it can be passed down to future generations—and future brides—as family keepsakes.
Jewelry is also highly personalized to fit any style you are looking for. Whether your wedding dress is ball a gown, A-line, or mermaid style, you can find the perfect matching necklace, bracelet, or earrings that fits your personality and needs. Blue jewelry can give your look a certain amount of flair on your wedding day, as well.
There are many different types of blue gems, and the price of jewelry can vary depending on its shape, style, and the gemstones used to create the piece. Fortunately, there is something blue in every price range.
Types of Blue Stones
Blue is a popular choice for gemstones. It’s a calming, serene color that symbolizes health and stability, so it’s a perfect option for your wedding day. Here are our top choices for blue gemstones and options you can consider when buying your something blue:
- Alexandrite: Alexandrite can come in a range of color options and is highly durable, making it a popular choice for jewelry. If you want a unique shade of blue, like one with an emerald hue, the color of alexandrite is very adjustable to fit your needs.
- Aquamarine: Weddings on the beach are the perfect opportunity to wear aquamarine jewelry. The sea-blue color of this stone is light and reflective, and the gem itself is very durable.
- Sapphire: Like many stones, sapphire comes in a range of colors. However, blue is the most well-known and popular option. Among natural gemstones, sapphire is extremely durable and is comparable to a diamond in that it resists chipping and breaking easily.
- Tanzanite: This blue-purple stone is rarer than other gems, so it’s a perfect option if you want something more unique for your wedding day. Because it’s not as popular, it is more expensive than other stones and can range from dark, intense blue to lighter blue shades.
- Topaz: Topaz is colorless when found in nature, so it can be dyed with vibrant blue colors. This gemstone is more affordable than other stones and is a great option for a tighter budget. Blue topaz also comes in different varieties, so it can be easily personalized depending on the shade of blue you’re looking for.
- Turquoise: Turquoise is a popular and cheap option for jewelry. It can break easily, so it has to be cared for to keep its opaque color and design. Although cheaper than other stones, turquoise can still bring a bright, distinct look to your wedding outfit.
- Zircon: Blue zircon is comparable to diamonds in its appearance but is cheaper and can come in many different colors. Zircon is more brittle than other stones, so it may become easily damaged if it’s not taken care of properly.
