Your bridesmaids are giving their time, and likely a bit of their money, to play a big part in your special day. Why not say thanks to each one with a gift of beautiful jewelry? Pieces such as sterling silver rings, gemstone pendants and strands of pearls can all communicate to your bridal party that you appreciate them.
Sterling silver gemstone rings can add an extra pop of color to your wedding ceremony as well as express your appreciation. Consider choosing styles that feature a gemstone that matches your attendants’ dresses and giving it to them at the rehearsal dinner. That way, each bridesmaid will be able to debut her new ring as she precedes you down the aisle. And, since many of these rings can also serve as silver engagement rings, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to give pieces that complement your own bridal jewelry.
Antique silver gemstone styles add a feminine touch to any bridesmaid’s hand. For example, the Victorian Floral Garnet Ring in .925 Sterling Silver features an intricate filigree design inspired by the ladylike styles that were popular over a century ago, accented with an eye-catching red garnet. Or, for a more modern look with a handmade touch, consider a hammered look such as the Hammered Purple Ocean Sterling Silver Amethyst Ring. This handcrafted ring, with its sizeable amethyst, is simple but stunning.
Sterling silver gemstone pendants are also excellent choices for your bridal party. Simple styles such as the 3.50 Carat Swiss Blue Topaz and Diamond Pendant in .925 Sterling Silver make chic, colorful statements that your attendants are sure to appreciate. Accented by a small diamond, a bold oval-shaped blue topaz is the perfect touch of “something blue” to remind each bridesmaid of your wedding day.
You can’t go wrong with pearls, and a pearl bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings is a lovely way to say thank you to the ladies that helped make your day special. Pearls are a true classic, making them a gift that will always be in style. The Cultured Round Pearl Bracelet 14K Yellow Gold is truly timeless. Its seven inches of perfectly matched 6.5 mm pearls are secured with a 14K yellow gold clasp to form a look that will be treasured for years to come. Add a pair of 6-6.5 mm Cultured Round Pearl Stud Earrings in 14K Yellow Gold to create a coordinated set, or give these earrings alone for an versatile accent that your bridesmaids will be able to wear over and over.
If tradition with a subtle twist better suits your bridesmaids, consider a strand of pearls with a hint of color. Apples of Gold’s 7-8mm Lavender Freshwater Pearl Necklace features AAA quality hand-picked pearls and your choice of a sterling silver, white gold or yellow gold clasp. It’s the perfect mix of modern style and timeless class.
Although you’re the star of your wedding day, don’t forget to acknowledge the ladies who play strong supporting roles. Honoring them with a gift of jewelry is the perfect way to say thanks.
