10 Earrings That Make a Perfect “Something Blue”

something blue statement earrings

Earlier this week, bride-to-be Cassandra wrote us with an Ask Emmaline question. She says,

I’ve heard about the Something Old, Something New tradition and I want to follow it for my wedding. I am having trouble figuring out what to pick for something blue, as my shoes are already nude heels, I already have a veil and sash (both ivory), and I am not using any blue flowers in my bouquet. Any advice for something easy I can add?

Cassandra

Great question, Cassandra! We love Something Blue ideas around here since it’s one more way to really add a personalized, handcrafted touch to your wedding. One of the easiest ways to add “something blue” is with jewelry… namely, earrings. Blue earrings are one of the hottest trends for brides right now and we don’t see this fading anytime soon. The best part? You’ll definitely wear them again long after the big day (unlike a blue brooch, sash, or flowers, as examples). When it comes to blue earrings, one of our favorite places to browse is Laura Stark because her collection is incredible. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite pieces from her shop, including this stunning luxe blue earring set as shown in the image above (isn’t it breathtaking?) and in the image below. We’ve gathered a mixture of classic to beach to vintage-inspired finds. Which one is your favorite?
