What should I consider when buying bridesmaid jewellery?

Shopping for bridesmaid jewellery can be a fun way to make your ladies feel special before the big day! 

With so many styles and sizes available, it can be difficult to know where to begin. 

The key is to remember that each bridesmaid's style should be taken into account when selecting pieces they will love wearing. 

Start your search by taking note of the colours, fabric, and length of each bridesmaid’s dress. 

From there, determine what type of jewellery you would like each girl to wear and narrow down the size that would suit them best.

It also helps to keep in mind the shape of their faces as well – delicate studs may look great on one person, but not on others! 

Above all else, make sure each bridesmaid has accessories that fit her personality and make her feel beautiful.


To ensure all your bridesmaids look their best on your wedding day, there are a few things you’ll need to think about when sizing.

First, if you haven’t done so already, ensure you measure each of your bridesmaid’s wrists or necks (depending on the type of jewellery you are purchasing). 

This will help to determine the right size for each individual ...and create coordinated looks. 

Consider necklines too. if one of your bridesmaids is wearing a high neckline piece, they may prefer some elegant minimal pearl earrings ...and those in v-neck pieces would look wonderful with a sparkly silver pendant for example. 

Taking the time to choose well-fitting jewellery that complements their dress and skin tone will make sure those little details add up to a wonderful day! 


Top tip: buy adjustable bridesmaid jewellery

The key to success when sizing jewellery is finding pieces that can be adjusted to fit each bridesmaid's unique size. 

A necklace with an adjustable chain is ideal, as the length can be shortened or extended to fit the particular person without too much difficulty. 

Tend to err on the side of caution when measuring necklaces or bracelets. Slightly longer is always best as it’s easier (and less expensive!) to shorten jewellery than it is to lengthen it. 

Which metals are best?

Choosing the right metal for your bridesmaids’ jewellery to match their stunning dresses isn't an easy decision! 

However, there are many popular metals to choose from when creating beautiful special pieces. 

Silver is one of the most popular and timeless options- its shine and sparkle add a truly elegant touch that elevates any outfit.

Which gemstones should I choose 

Shopping for the perfect jewellery when asking friends to be your bridesmaid can feel a little overwhelming! 

There are so many options out there, but one standout choice is to go with a collection of gemstones! 

Gemstone jewellery is beautiful, elegant and sure to make a statement! 

If you have the budget then Sapphires, rubies and emeralds are traditional favourites for the bridal party, offering a regal look that's truly timeless.

Pearls have an enduring charm and look gorgeous against any dress colour, while aquamarine works beautifully for a beach wedding. 

Whatever you choose for your special day, gemstones provide an enchanting touch that will leave everyone looking effortlessly luxurious.
