oh, those are so pretty! Maybe because the one sans pearl is for the Maid/Matron of Honor, it could be to distinguish her from the other girls a little bit? I think they are beautiful just the way the are!

Oh those are a cute idea.  I personally would love to get one of those as a bridesmaid gift.  Jewelry is a traditional gift, but this type of jewelry give it a unique twist.

I think the fact that your Maid/Matron of Honor has a larger stone while the bridesmaids have the smaller stone plus pearl is actually a nice difference and the letter is so hard to see, I can’t notice the lowercase versus capital letter. However, I would tell her the necklaces are beautiful but not what you ordered if you want her to remake them without. If you dont want new ones, I probably wouldn’t try to get money or just complain for the heck of it…not worth it.

It is easy enough to take the necklaces to a local jeweller or bead shop and have them remove the pearls. It will take only a second with  needlenose pliers to open up the link the pearl is attached with. You can save them and give them to the maids to add back to the necklace after the wedding if they so choose.

if you don’t like the pearl, just use wire cutters and clip them off. it would take 2 seconds. i think the designer was right to do it–they look great. plus they differentiate the Maid/Matron of Honor from the others.

 

i think they’re lovely as is, but if you don’t, get some clippers πŸ™‚

 

edit: the lower case letters are not prominent, so don’t worry. the whole ensemble is beautiful

this is interesting because i think i know the vendor you used. SAM? funny thing is that she did the exact sort of thing to me. the picture showed a certain design and then when i got it, a small detail was different. i.e. leaf in picture was a full leaf but then she made one with a skeleton leaf. anyway, not a big deal.  but i think i would cut off the pearls as suggested above.

I say leave the pearls on.  They look really nice and since its the Maid/Matron of Honor who’s necklace is different (bigger stone with no pearl) it still totally works!  (although in all honesty, I’d bet few people would even notice the difference if they saw all three girls wearing them).

They are beautiful necklaces and I don’t think it matters that some have different/extra stones. If it makes you feel any better, I gave my girls all different earrings as their gift. All from the same designer, but totally different styles. I kept the stones all in the same color theme: black, gray, clear, white. But two of my girls are totally able to pull off big fancy hoops, while two others are super conservative and got stone clusters or drops and one didn’t have pierced ears so I got her a necklace with a matching stone.
