Bling It On: Jewelry for Your Bridal Party
Your bridesmaids will definitely want to wear these long after the wedding, and we don’t mean their dresses.
FOR THE PREPSTER
A different take on the personalized jewelry craze, this bangle by Sarah Chloe from Charm & Chain is modern and will dress up any outfit, day or night. You can squeeze up to three initials in a blocked or cursive font on the sterling silver or yellow gold/plate bracelet. $129 at charmandchain.com
FOR THE FASHIONISTA
We all have those friends who look great all the time and are the hardest to shop for. Consider these earrings by Suzy B, which she can wear to your wedding, on a date, while on vacation or to work. Trust us, she will thank you for these keepers. You can gift them in a rainbow of colors — pink amethyst, turquoise and black onyx — but we’re partial to the Lapis, pictured here. Larger size available.
FOR THE BEACH BUM
Everyone knows about Helen Ficalora’s monogram necklaces. There have been dozens and dozens of imitators. Choose a different take by celebrating your destination wedding or embracing your friend’s love of the beach with this starfish necklace. Available in yellow, pink, and white gold. Pictured here, 14k yellow gold starfish charm on a 14k yellow gold 18″ fine chain. $335 (price includes chain) at Helen Ficalora, 21 Cleveland Place near Spring St., (212) 219-3700
FOR THE JUNIOR BRIDESMAID
Junior bridesmaid gifts are tricky. Too mature and she might lose it or her parents won’t like it, too babyish and she’ll never put it on. Kelly Gerber makes this emoticon necklace, perfect for that tween-aged junior bridesmaid who would love to wear it to the wedding and beyond. Available in sterling silver or 14kt white, yellow or rose gold.
$150, chains sold separately at kellygerber.com
FOR THE FLOWER GIRL
We’re not for piercing ears too early, but for those flower girls say, six and up, how precious are these butterfly studs? Alex Woo hit the mark because these are super stylish without being too cutesy for a budding fashionista. Available in sterling silver, 14kt gold, 14kt white gold with diamond or 14kt gold with diamond. Shown in 14 kt gold, $298, alexwoo.com
