Onyx Wedding Inspiration

Breaking free from being a black and white wedding, focusing on the gemstone, onyx, your wedding will not only feel classy, but have so much more meaning behind it! Meanings and Connections to the Onyx Gemstone for your Onyx Wedding Onyx has a somewhat strange story behind it's "mythical" creation: It is said that Cupid cut the fingernails from the goddess Venus while she slept, leaving the fingernail clippings in the sand. Then the fates turned them into stones. Now if your're thinking of your grooms gross clippings left in the family room, don't. This story shows how highly the stones were respected as coming from part of a goddess.  Another interesting little detail about Onyx is that if you dream about onyx, it is supposed to symbolize a happy life with your perfect match (aka happily ever after). It is also supposed to be a protection against dark forces and remove negativity out of your life. The stories and meanings connected to Onyx may not be quickly seen as romantic, however starting a marriage without negativity and being each other's perfect match in the presence of a goddess's nail clippings (okay maybe not the nail clippings part) is pretty romantic!
