Dainty jewels are a safe bet for bridal party gifts, but why not have a little fun? Deck out your 'maids in on-trend statement rings, necklaces, and earrings that work with your palette and style, and they'll wear them for your big day and beyond. From gemstones, to sweet charms, and tassel details, you'll find plenty here to love—especially since each piece is as unique as each member of your crew. Whether you gift them to give your bridesmaids to say "thank you" after the wedding day or slip them into their holiday stockings, these gems and jewels are sure to please.

 

But they're not just great options as gifts for your attendants. These pretty baubles would work just as well as a little pre-wedding present to yourself. Depending on the piece (or pieces!) you choose, they might even be something you'd want to wear on your big day. A chunky pearl collar feels classic and fresh, especially when paired with an ivory or cream wedding dress. Want something bolder? Slide a bright turquoise cocktail ring onto your right hand and you have your something blue. Don't restrict yourself, though—these earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings don't have to be something you wear down your aisle. On your wedding day or Tuesday, they're sure to make you feel special.

 

Pops of Color

 

Color is important when you're accessorizing your party. A good rule: Choose coordinating tones. Cool-hued jewels flatter bright-white wedding gowns and bold, poppy bridesmaids' dresses. Go for tons of sparkle or a playful touch, like the "Oui " and "Non" earrings at left (which can flip to encourage dance partners or banish unwelcome flirts).

Pearl Party

For brides, pearls are best paired with ivory or cream wedding dresses, since they complement warmer tones. They'll do the same for bridesmaids' dresses in muted pastels or neutrals. Trend note: Brooches (like the poodle at top) are back—and could not be any cuter. Fasten one to a bridesmaid's belt, to a clutch, or to the ribbon of your bouquet.

Mix and Match

Yellow-gold and warm-toned jewelry always pairs well with blush pinks, peaches, and ecru. Just as with their dresses, your 'maids' accessories don't have to be the same. You can mix and match as you please, as long as you stay in the same color family. The charms at center, with lime and aqua stars, make a really special thank-you and are available in many hues.
