    I would get them a neutral color, like clear crystal. We design jewelry and while I think it is great to try and match the color of the dress with the jewelry it seems as though your bridesmaids will be able to wear the jewelry more often if it is in a neutral color. If you have an accent color that is more neutral maybe you can pick up on that.

    On a personal note, my bridesmaids wore navy blue and for the jewelry I gave them it was in a neutral cream pearl color like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/49680101/ivory-cream-swarovski-pearl-and-crystal

    Hope this helps!

    Oops I forgot one more thing. For colors that are hard to match perfectly a neutral color eliminates the possibility of getting jewelry that is close but not exactly matching (which I think would look worse).

    I would definetely prefer something neutral that I could wear again, but I sure as heck wouldn’t say no to a sapphire!
