Preparing for your wedding day is one of the most exciting and thought-about events. From the engagement ring to the venue, you’ve sincerely seen to every detail.

To get the most out of your special day, we’ve broken down this old expression to better understand the full significance. Explore ideas on how to integrate this wonderful custom into your own unforgettable day.
Leading up to the wedding, precious heirlooms are often passed down from one generation to the next. These sentimental treasures often boast styles which date back to earlier times. While unique, these designs can be an acquired taste for the modern bride-to-be. So, if you love your grandmother's priceless pendant and want to modernize the style, consider reimagining it through custom design. This is a special way to add your own personal flare while preserving the timeless gift you've been given. At Morton & Rudolph, we can take your ideas and create something completely one-of-a-kind. You won’t just treasure your custom piece on your wedding day, it will be something that is honored for years to come.

Known for their beautiful, rare, and responsibly-sourced diamonds, Forevermark will add more dazzle to your special day.
Tying in something borrowed from an already happily married couple is believed to lend the newlyweds good luck. Over time, this meaning has broadened to include honoring someone or something that has played a significant role in your love story. However you decide to integrate this tradition, Morton & Rudolph is ready to help. Refresh your borrowed piece with a cleaning and polishing service. Our expert jewelers will make sure you are shining in that special something when you say “I do.”
The color blue symbolizes the three pillars of a healthy marriage, which include fidelity, love and purity. Historically, brides wore blue garters to represent these virtues. While garters remain relatively common, some brides choose to shimmer in sapphire. These oval halo studs are one of our favorite picks. Aquamarine and blue topaz are other popular gemstone choices. Ultimately, it’s your day so choose whichever shade of blue makes you feel the most confident.
