You know the old phrase: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe." While you may not be as superstitious as the traditional British brides, consider incorporating touches inspired by antiquated wedding rituals to add old-world charm in a way that's modern and unique to your personal style.
Blue has long been associated with bridal tradition and weddings because it represents purity and fidelity, which is why blue ribbons and garters have been popular throughout the years. Blue ribbons are pretty, but we personally think that you're going to go for something blue, it should really sparkle–and yes, we're talking about sapphires!
Blue sapphires, like traditional bridal blues, are associated with purity and fidelity, but they're also considered the luckiest gemstone. In engagement rings, sapphires symbolize luck, sincerity, and fidelity, and represent a strong bond between the engaged couple. At Kirk Kara we use conflict-free, natural and extraordinary royal blue sapphires that are selected for their vibrancy and radiant color. Adding just a touch of vivid blue not only makes your ring unique, but it adds another layer of meaning for you and your husband-to-be. Your diamond is a promise of forever and your sapphires surrounding your stunning center stone with vibrant color make your ring a true work of art.
For inspiration, shop our Charlotte collection, where modern meets vintage in exquisitely crafted designs that incorporate beautifully shaped sapphires into art-deco-inspired pieces. Or, as always, contact our authorized retail partners and let us help you custom-design your own lucky sapphire engagement ring. It's okay to be a little superstitious for such a special, once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
