You are probably familiar with the rhyme, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” But, do you know what it really means?
Based on an Old English tradition, these are the four good luck charms that the bride adds to her wedding outfit. And, according to wedding magazine the knot, “Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity.”
So, if you’re planning an upcoming wedding, I’ve found the perfect “something blue” for you.
This striking tennis bracelet by KasLin is plated in gleaming platinum and set with sparkling clear and blue Swarovski Elements. Jewelry this lovely has simply got to be lucky!
This bracelet has a host of high-end design elements and wonderful construction. For example, the serpentine pattern is far more graceful and elegant than a standard in-line tennis bracelet. The link chain is incredibly sturdy, as is the simple fold-over-clasp. And, the addition of the sparkling sapphire blue crystals adds visual interest. The round brilliant cut stones are even prong set, not glued.
Of course, brides can’t have all of the luck. Priced at just $26.80 (or $15.98 on Amazon Prime) this bracelet would also make a much-appreciated bridesmaid, Mother’s Day, birthday, or graduation gift.
