Most every wedding has the same traditional four things- “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” Wearable accessories can most likely cover all of these categories. If you are looking for ideas on what to use for your traditional pieces there are several items that you can consider. For your wedding the options of vintage jewelry, borrowed jewelry, and new jewelry can all fulfill your needs.
Designer vintage jewelry is a great option for something old or something borrowed. There are so many beautiful vintage jewelry items out there and while they aren’t all expensive designer pieces, they can definitely make your wedding day more special. If you are looking for a completely unique jewelry piece, vintage costume jewelry is a great option.

Sometimes you don’t have to even leave your house, you can find a great vintage item in your mothers jewelry box.
Vintage jewelry is not always the best option for some brides, so if you don’t think vintage is the best option for you there are still other options. Sometimes borrowing jewelry can be a great option for a lot of brides. Whether you wear a family heirloom or borrow earrings from your best friend a “something borrowed” can be beautiful on any bride. If you don’t want to borrow a piece of jewelry to wear as jewelry the day of your wedding you can always attach it to your bouquet. A lot of brides attached lockets, or charms to their bouquet to make the trip down the aisle as something borrowed or something old.
If vintage jewelry or borrowed jewelry is not your taste, you can always go for “Something New.” New jewelry can make a beautiful addition to any bridal gown, and we all know that there are plenty of options for choosing new jewelry for your beautiful day.
