I’ve been a bridesmaid 13 times. I’ve even worn the same dress twice – in different colors. From all of those weddings, the bridesmaid gift that I love the most (and wear almost everyday) is a silver bead bracelet from my friend Kerri.
So, if you are in search of the perfect bridesmaid’s gift, consider jewelry. Most girls love it, the wedding party can wear it during your ceremony, and it can be a lasting memory for your friends about participating in your wedding.
And I love jewelry by Amelia Lock at AmeliaRoseDesign.com. Amelia is a lawyer turned jewelry designer (how great is that) whose collection contains colorful, stylish pieces that would be a lovely compliment to any bridesmaid dress (and other dresses that your friends will actually wear again). Her designs are available in 14k, gold filled and sterling silver.
Some of my favorites:
Green Amethyst and Textured Gold-Filled Chain, with 14K Vermeil Toggle Clasp, 36″.
May be worn as one long necklace, doubled or wrapped five times for bracelet.
Sky Blue Topaz and Freshwater Pearl on 14K Gold Ear Wire. Total drop-1.5″.
White Topaz wrapped in 14K Gold on 14K Gold Hoops. Total drop just over 1″.
Amelia Rose Design jewelry can be found in select boutiques throughout the Greater Boston Area, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Texas. See her website to browse her designs. My personal favorite is the Bluebell Collection.
