    Hi-

    I think that if you’re going to spend a lot of $ on jewelry, which you probably are if the jewelry has genuine gemstones in it, you’re better off buying something cheap if they already acted like they wouldn’t appreciate jewelry.  I didn’t see your other post about them being pains in the @sses, but if that’s really how it is going to be, I say get them cheapie sets from Claires or the Icing (or whatever) and don’t waste your $$ on something REALLY nice. 

    I know you listed that it’s ‘affordable’ but I don’t know if that’s relative….like, affordable for REAL gemstones, or affordable period.

    Well, to me, 50.00 is too much to spend on someone who isn’t going to appreciate it.  I say get them something cheaper for the jewelry (sounds like you want that control lol) and then something else the ingrates might appreciate, like a gift card.  Sorry to hear you’re dealing with diffucult bridesmaids, I’d be so happy to get fancy jewelry, even IF I didn’t think I would wear it again in the near future.

    Well those are lovely; I’m sorry your bridesmaids aren’t being more accomodating and pretending they love it anyway, since you’re not asking them to buy it on their own! I think if your bms are already stressing you out, you should buy them EXACTLY what you want them to wear that you feel you can afford, and don’t worry about if they’ll wear them again. If you’re paying, you can think about your pictures instead. 😉

    My gosh, you are one GENEROUS bride!  Don’t sweat it anymore.  You’ve done enough!  Get them what you want them to wear.

    Your spending loads of moolah on their get-up and their totes!  I’d say grab the jewelry that YOU want them to wear-it’ll be part of their get-up.  No question. 🙂

    First, I can’t believe how much you’re spending on your girls and how ungrateful they’re being! Fifty is a lot to spend on jewelry, can you maybe enlist their help and see if they can find something they like for around that price, that way they’ll wear it again? I was recently in two weddings where the bride gave us necklaces: the first one was okay and I’ll probably wear it again, but the second set actually gave me a rash on my chest; I wish I would’ve been in the process to help pick out our necklaces…
