Help a bride put a twist on the centuries-old tradition of wearing something blue on her wedding day.

Show her engagement rings and wedding bands with diamonds and blue gemstones such as sapphire, tanzanite, tourmaline or aquamarine. It may not be customary but it's right on trend.

Actually, the colored-gemstone and diamond combo is a stunning look for brides regardless of the piece of jewelry or the hue of the stone.

W Magazine features several extremely high-end, but gorgeous, options: Bruce Hoeksema's dangling diamond and emerald earrings for VBH, Ashok Sancheti's teardrop diamond and emerald pendant and de Grisogono's emerald and diamond ring set in 18-karat gold.
