Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue…traditions are special, especially when it comes to weddings! Wearing “something old” represents a bride’s past, while wearing “something new” symbolizes a couple’s happy future. “Something borrowed” is supposed to be something from someone happily married, so the good fortune rubs off on the new bride, and “something blue” denotes fidelity and love. While these “somethings” can be anything from hair pins to ribbons to earrings, it’s no doubt that on your wedding day, the jewelry that you wear is incredibly significant.
Your expert friends at Rogers & Hollands and Ashcroft & Oak have tons of unique and special wedding day jewelry options to help you feel even more fabulous on your big day. We can only guess that mom has been in your ear about what you should wear… but sometimes, mother doesn’t always know best! This day is all about you - whether you go bold or simple with your wedding day jewelry choices, you’ll remember the jewelry you wear on your wedding day forever. Maybe you’ll pass these pieces down to someone special on her big day, or keep them forever as a special memento of one of your most favorite days! Either way, we have the perfect list of jewelry for your wedding day.
Wedding Day Jewelry for the Bride
When it comes to finding the perfect jewelry to highlight your wedding dress on the big day, our best advice is to stick with the pieces you’re most comfortable with, but with a little added flair. Maybe you have a simple pendant that you wear every day; instead, on your wedding day, mix in a new necklace that is a different metal and has a different center stone so it feels more special for the occasion.
The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to switch things up. You can wear a gorgeous set of stackable bolo bracelets for your wedding reception, a stunning pair of stud earrings for your ceremony and a pair of bold statement earrings for your reception! You make the rules, and you choose the pieces that you love.
We think that you can never go wrong with the classics… these princess-cut diamond solitaire stud earrings are set in 14 karat white gold for a simple touch of elegance and sparkle. These earrings will look beautiful if your hair is pulled back or kept down, and these studs will hold up for whatever you have in mind for your honeymoon.
Another wedding day jewelry idea for the bride is an eternity band. Eternity rings symbolize everlasting love - so romantic! Eternity bands are an excellent compliment to your engagement ring, worn on the right hand, and add a lovely touch of sparkle. Our favorite is this round moissanite eternity ring in 10k white gold. This stunning eternity band is crafted in 10 karat white gold, and features 19 round-cut created moissanite gemstones in a classic, shimmering eternity ring design. This is a no-brainer as far as wedding day jewelry goes! Shop our collection of rings for more ideas.
Something Blue Jewelry for Brides
The color blue stands for love, purity and fidelity - all important qualities for a happy and successful marriage. To put a checkmark on your “something blue” box, consider our blue topaz & diamond infinity drop pendant. This beautiful pendant features a round blue gemstone center stone surrounded by 32 accent diamonds. Crafted in 10 karat white gold, this pendant adds a perfect and subtle pop of color to your wedding ensemble. Plus, its infinity shape symbolizes your happily ever after! This pendant is a gorgeous piece to wear day-to-day, or you can tuck it away and save it to give to your daughter or niece for her “something blue” or “something borrowed.”

Pearl Wedding Day Jewelry for Brides
Classic, timeless and naturally beautiful, pearl jewelry seems like the perfect accessory for a bride’s wedding day. In some families, it is a tradition for a mother-in-law to pass down a gift of pearl jewelry to their future daughter-in-law. Some old tales even state that if a bride wears pearls on her wedding day, she will have a lifetime of joy and happiness!
Our freshwater pearl necklace, bracelet & earrings jewelry set is the perfect way to tie pearl jewelry into your big day. This beautiful set would make a fabulous gift for any future daughter-in-law, or, could be the perfect heirloom to pass down one day. This box set features an iridescent freshwater pearl strand necklace, bracelet and pair of stud earrings. Gorgeous as a set or worn individually, these pearl pieces will be the perfect and sophisticated compliment to any wedding dress.
Gold Wedding Jewelry for Brides

With a variety of customization options, (check out our online design studio or visit one of our stores for all things custom!) it's never been easier to own the perfect piece of personalized jewelry.
For a timeless look that you can wear long after your wedding day, we recommend a simple gold ring with your monogram. Our laser polished monogram ring in 10k yellow gold allows you to choose three letters that will be carved in an open script in this polish finished yellow gold ring. This is a piece of jewelry that you will cherish forever. You can also engrave any other piece of jewelry, like a necklace, a yellow gold ring or a bar bracelet, with your wedding date, a special quote, meaningful coordinates, or you and your partners names.
