I think you did great with those BM gifts and in your case jewelry would be a great addition. I’d take a look at the Christmas sales, tons of pretty jewelry sets available for really good prices at that time of year.

You can if you make sure its good quality.  A friend of mine gave us costume jewellery and by the end of the night 3 out of 4 of us had broken earrings and my necklace and arm band did not hold up well.  I accidentally dropped the necklace on ceramic tiles and it broke and the arm band snapped when I took it off. 

Also, make sure none of them have any sensitivities to metals.  I know one of my bridesmaids can only wear silver or gold in her ears or they get very badly infected.

I just assumed that all BM jewellery was costume jewellery. Surely people aren’t actually shelling out for real stuff are they?! 

But yes, please do keep metal allergies in mind, just ask the girls and/or look for “nickel free” (and cobalt too but that’s harder to find).

@ksus07:  I guess most BM jewellery I see is like that in this post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/bm-giftsjewelry-opinions-please#axzz2hIZAOWdm

To have that as “the real deal” would be so super expensive! Plus it is not guaranteed to be their own taste. The difference is most likely between stuff you want them to wear on the day (costume) and stuff you want them to wear as actual, long term, keep-sake stuff (real).
