If you're heading to a wedding this summer, make it your duty to ensure the bride has her good luck charms. 

Stemming from an old rhyme, British tradition suggests that on her big day a bride should have something old to represent continuity, something new to signify optimism for the future, something borrowed to show happiness and something blue to stand for purity, love and fidelity.

While the something old and something borrowed may come in the form of something more sentimental (or last minute) from family and friends, make sure her something new and blue will last a lifetime with our edit of the most gorgeous navy, indigo and teal jewellery, beauty products, fashion and homewares at Fenwick this season...
