By the time you are enjoying the happiest day of your life, your maid of honor has spent countless hours helping you prepare for the wedding. She has trekked with you from bridal boutique to bridal boutique to find the perfect dress, compared color swatches until her eyes hurt, helped throw a fabulous bridal shower and bachelorette party, and emotionally supported you for the past year.
For being your closest friend, ally and confidant (and for smiling through your borderline-bridezilla moments), your maid of honor deserves an extra special thank you gift.
A Gift That Stands the Test of Time
Since your maid of honor is hopefully someone you plan to have in your life forever, we love the idea of giving her a gift that she can keep and cherish forever. Nix the shoes that will wear out by next year, and steer clear of a trendy-hued scarf that will look dated come Fall. Instead, give her an investment piece of jewelry she will treasure her entire life: pearls.
Pearls are the perfect maid of honor gift. They’re beautiful, unique, last a lifetime and can be worn with just about anything. They look just as lovely on a twenty year old girl as they do on an eighty year old grandmother, making them one of the most timeless pieces of jewelry you can buy. The best news is that, even if you are on a budget, you can find plenty of stunning pearls jewelry for under $100. Here are some of our favorites:
Not only can you get your favorite girlfriend pearls for under $100, you can also give her diamonds. This darling ring (pictured at top left) is a simple, classic design that she can even wear on your wedding day – a single, large pearl surrounded by a halo of sparkling diamonds, all set in a solid 14K white gold band.
This gorgeous pearl necklace is a complete steal at under $100. The natural freshwater pearls range in hue from black to a lovely deep lavender, and look stunning against the skin. It’s just the pick for a stylish, sophisticated maid of honor.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: few pieces of jewelry are as classic as pearl stud earrings. They are equally suited to be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or a formal ballgown, and never, ever go out of style. These are another great choice that your maid of honor can wear on your wedding day and enjoy forevermore.
