I am having coordinating but not identical dresses for my bridesmaids, which I love, but it is leaving me at a bit of a loss with regards to jewelry. I would like to gift my bridesmaids the jewelry I would like them to wear (at least in regards to earrings and necklaces).
My MOH is wearing this:
And my four bridemaids are wearing these (two in each):
I’m thinking the strapless style would look good with a semi-chunky necklace, but the other two dresses would go better with dangly earrings, I think. I would probably do sparkly earrings of some sort for my MOH and the two bridesmaids with the halter style top and a necklace and some basic/inexpensive coordinating stud style earrings for the two ladies in the strapless. Also my two ladies in the strapless dresses are the only two I could see rewearing a chunky style necklace ever again anyway.
Is it ok to gift different items to different bridesmaids (plus two will be getting necklace + stud earrings vs just earrings)? Also, if anyone has suggestions or links to specific pieces (or other ideas), I would greatly appreciate it. I can’t go to my bridesmaids for help on this one, like I have for other things. I would like to stay around $50 per person for jewelry (as I have other things for them planned).

how about for your girls wearing earrings and no necklace you add a pretty bracelet for them?

Why not just dangly statement earrings for all? I don’t think any of those dresses NEED necklaces.

I second what Makemeamrs said. I would skip the necklace and do earings and bracelet as each neckline of the dress is different. I asked my girls and they all said they wanted the same thing when it came to gifts so it made it easier on me.

Thanks. Now that I am looking at the strapless one again, I think it would look good with statement earrings & no necklace.
Sometimes it helps to get an outside perspective because I swear I just spent 30 minutes staring at that dress determined that it needs a necklace and now earrings seem so much better.

Earrings only or earring and bracelet

@Pingwing: Yeah, I agree with @lolot: about just giving some nice earrings; all the necklines are pretty on their own and all (perhaps except the strapless one) would clash/compete with a necklace.

Thanks, everyone. I think I am just going to go with earrings for all 🙂
