One Of A Kind Jewelry Gifts for Bridesmaids.
One of the problems with giving gifts to multiple people at one time is that it can feel a little fake if you’re giving everyone the same thing.
One way to get around that would be to buy one-of-a-kind jewelry for your bridesmaids so that you can fit each person’s style to the gift.
These wire-wrapped pendants from BX Jewels Scotland are all made by hand so no two are exactly the same. You can choose one for each person individually, which makes the present a little more special.
Stony Mountain Jewelry makes individual art jewelry pieces that would be a really nice gift for someone with an eclectic aesthetic. The stones are unique so each piece is different.
Fused glass earrings.
Cheryl Kumiski Glass creates fused glass jewelry that’s truly unique since every piece will be slightly different based on how the glass behaves!
Natural stone earrings.
Enlivenadorn makes jewelry with natural stones , so each set of earrings has naturally-occurring differences in patterns and colors. It guarantees that you won’t be giving two people the same thing even if you buy all of your bridesmaids the same color.
Handmade soutache jewelry.
Be Exceptional offers unique handmade jewelry using Soutache braid, and her designs sell out quickly. You can check out her latest collections for your bridesmaid gifts here: Be Exceptional By Joanna Potepa
Jewelry made from vintage china.
eclectiQuas makes jewelry from vintage china, so there are limited numbers of each piece and they’re all different even if they’re from the same pattern.
Gifts for goth bridesmaids.
If your aesthetic is a little on the dark side (or all the way there,) you might want to give your bridesmaids a gift that reflects that. These ideas are perfect for someone who’s less traditional.
Edgy silver jewelry.
RavynEdge creates handmade jewelry with silver and gemstones in a dark aesthetic. These art pieces are gorgeous keepsakes that your friends will be able to wear for years.
Black lace chokers.
Twisted Pixies makes leather and lace chokers that would be a nice accessory for your goth bridesmaids to wear during the wedding, and afterward as well. This is a gift that could do double time!
These handmade apothecary jars by Lori’s Laboratory would be unique gifts for your witchy or goth bridesmaids. They’re both utilitarian and pretty, so they could be used to hold things, or just as a decor item.
Goth journals for your bridesmaids.
Ila and Alice creates junk journals with multiple themes, one of them being dark and eerie journals. They’re one of a kind so you can get each of your bridesmaids one that matches her personality.
The Manifesting Witch shop has a lot of crystals for manifesting and divination. I found these pretty crystal orbs that come in a large selection of stones, so you can find one that fits each of your bridesmaids individually.
Artwork for telling a story.
If your bridesmaids like dark art, you should go to ShadowMyths to see the fine art prints that are available. The artwork is available in prints, card decks, and original paintings, and they would be a unique departure from the more traditional type of bridesmaids gifts.
Traditional pearl gifts.
Pearls are used to make a lot of traditional wedding jewelry, both for the bride and the bridesmaids. These gift choices use pearls or a pearl shape with other natural stones.
Natural pearl jewelry.
Kathy Bankston jewelry has a collection of pearl and mother-of-pearl jewelry made by hand using natural stones. These would be a gift that you could give to each of your bridesmaids and know that everyone will be able to wear and enjoy it.
Natural Stones Jewels has a pearl jewelry collection where you can buy natural pearl bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. And this is another type of gift that will do double-duty as an accessory to wear during the wedding that can also be worn in “normal” daily life.
Pretty pearl earrings.
These pretty flower and pearl earrings are available from Jewelry By Irina. She has other bridal jewelry options that would work for both the bride and the bridesmaids, and you can check out the full collection here: Pearl jewelry by Irina
Pearl glasses chains for sunglasses.
These pearl glasses chains from Kalx Designs can be used for sunglasses, so they would be a cute gift for bridesmaids at a beach wedding. They combine the traditional pearls in a way that’s not a typical jewelry gift. They also come in colored pearl versions if you want to reserve the white color for yourself.
Pink pearl bracelet.
This bracelet from Shakti Vibe Malas is pink stones shaped into pearls so that you get the look of pearls with the healing qualities of the different pink gems. She suggests that you use these for a bridesmaid proposal gift, but it could easily be given as a gift on the wedding day.
Accessories for your bridesmaids.
If you don’t want to go the jewelry route, you can always get your bridesmaids a gift that they can use on a daily basis after the wedding day. A practical gift is usually appreciated, and for people who don’t wear jewelry it might be a nice surprise.
Custom tote bags.
Personalized tote caddies are always a welcome gift, and they can be used as a market bag after the wedding. You could get these monogrammed for each bridesmaid, then find some small items to put in them that are personal for each of your friends to customize them.
Handwoven cowl scarves.
This hand-woven scarf is one of many that are made by Lyon Handwovens. For a fall or winter wedding, a gift of a scarf is both pretty and useful, and it’s one that your bridesmaids will use after the wedding is over.
A crossbody phone bag from Tracey Lipman Designs will be a welcome bridesmaid gift. Even if no cell phones are allowed during the ceremony, people will have their phones during the reception, and your bridesmaids will also be able to use these bags after the wedding day.
Bridesmaid gifts for the guys and girls.
If you have both bridesmaids and bridesmen, you can still coordinate a day-of-the-wedding gift. Kennedy Elise sells handcrafted headbands, scrunchies, neckties and pocket squares in coordinating fabrics. You can coordinate the gifts but still personalize them to each of your attendants’ styles.
