Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue…with wedding standards and traditions nipping at your heels, finding exactly what you’re looking for can be a breath of fresh air. We have found a one-stop shop that can help you check a part of that tradition off of your ever growing list.
To step into Jessica Ricci’s shop at the Arcade in Providence is to fall in love with her striking, one-of-a-kind jewelry. Combining old and new is Ricci’s specialty: She repurposes objects collected during her world travels into wearable works of art. From antique Argentinean skeleton keys to 2,000-year-old Roman coins, history is treated with the utmost reverence and consideration. The love that Ricci’s pours into her jewelry is inspiring. What could be more thought provoking than to wear jewelry created with artifacts that have withstood the tests of time for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? Could this line possibly be the ideal testament to marriage?
Whether you are looking for a striking statement necklace (check out the International Bead Necklace) or a simple bracelet, (we love the French Lace Cuff), there is something for every bride-to-be. Ricci even covers your something blue with alluring Aquamarine Dangling Earrings. Be sure to remember your wedding party as you shop around, too. The Ganesh Teardrop Pendant or Rose Quartz Stud Earrings would make perfect thank-you gifts for your lovely ladies. While we’ve hopefully helped knock a few categories off of your list, don’t forget that you still need something borrowed…now who to ask? Good luck and enjoy the journey!
