Choosing the best Bridesmaid Jewelry and Bridesmaid Jewelry Sets
Bridesmaids were traditionally unmarried women who made up the bridal party and attended to the bride on her wedding day. It was also customary for the bride to pay for the bridesmaid's attire, jewelry and travel in those days. Times have changed now and the modern bridesmaids often pay for their own dress and jewelry. However, it is a nice gesture to buy and gift the wedding jewelry for bridesmaids yourself.
A wedding, one of the most important moments of a woman's life! Whether the day is yours or a friend's, it will always be joyous occasion. Naturally, all eyes will be on the starlet of the night, the bride. A good bride, however, never neglects her bridesmaids. Bridesmaids play a very important role in a wedding. From setting the pre-ceremony stage, to tying the knot, to the toast and the final festivities, your bridesmaids will partake in all the planning and the decisions.
The bride usually likes to outshine everyone on her wedding day. Naturally, you are bound to wear the most expensive and gorgeous dress and jewelry you can afford. The bridesmaids on the other hand are dressed a few shades less bright, to compliment the wedding theme without taking the spotlight away from the bride. Consequently, the bridal party jewelry need not be as lavish or expensive as bridal jewelry.
Gone are the days when weddings when brides wore traditional white gowns. Today we have themed weddings in period clothes, in churches filled with pink flowers or even in black themes. Choosing your unique bridesmaid jewelry therefore becomes more and more complicated as well.
A popular choice among brides to show appreciation for their bridesmaids is to give bridesmaid jewelry as a gift. They are, after all, the ones who stand by her on her wedding day and who says this is an easy task? Luckily, there is nowadays a huge variety of bridesmaid jewelry and bridesmaid jewelry sets to choose from, from classic pearl necklaces to lavish rhinestones.
The first rule of choosing the right color and style of bridesmaid jewelry is to match it with the overall theme of the wedding. The bridesmaid jewelry is always more low key than the bride's. Generally, standard bridesmaid jewelry set contains a necklace, a pair of earrings and a bracelet each. Colors can be either complimentary or contrasting the bridesmaid's dress or overall theme colors. While it is fine to pick contemporary designs, keep in mind wedding jewelry should be elegant and with a touch of romance.
A necklace isn't always necessary. If your bridesmaid's dress has a high neckline then you can do away with it. As a rule, bridesmaid necklace should be shorter than the neckline or it won't be elegant. If the dress is simple, elegant gold or silver chain with pendant is very suitable. If you prefer something more ornamental, a string of pearls or a choker will go as well.
The earrings will rely heavily on your choice of necklace since they will have to complement the look and feel of the dominant piece. If the bridesmaid's dress has a high neckline that makes it unnecessary to purchase a necklace, then a stud earring should be fine. For dresses with plunging neckline or off shoulder designs, danglers that match the necklace will look better.
Bracelet is perhaps the only bridesmaid jewelry that can be loud and chunky. Worn either over glove or on the bare wrist, it can be stone settings on silver or gold, pearl strings or even costume jewelry. Apart from these three, a brooch can also be a part of bridesmaid jewelry set.
When choosing the right bridesmaid jewelry, budget need also be kept in mind. Your choice of jewelry can be bridesmaid pearl earrings, bridesmaid pearl necklace, or bridesmaid jewelry sets, which come complete with matching earrings and necklace. The list of options is endless. Plan bridesmaid jewelry at least four months in advance. Since each bridesmaid may have a different personality and style, you may also consider choosing a unique style of bridesmaid jewelry to reflect each individual bridesmaid.
How to choose the bridesmaid jewelry to meet your wedding needs? Consider your wedding theme, your wedding colors and the formality of the occasion. Other facts to take into account when choosing the right bridesmaid jewelry is the color of gemstone. Popular types are crystal, pearl and rhinestone. For neutral coloring, clear crystal bridesmaid jewelry sets are both modern and fashionable, and are a bridesmaid favorite.

However, with the wedding itself costing a lot, many you may prudently choose to go for more affordable options such as crystal bridesmaid jewelry and costume jewelry.

Before finalizing any order on bridal jewelry, it is better to consult with the bridesmaids. Women are choosy about what they wear. The bridesmaids might have their own preference on whether they want a dangler or a stud earring or if the necklaces should be longer or shorter etc. Inviting the bridesmaids to come for a trial at the designers or emailing the picture of the jewelry to your bridesmaids is the best way to finalize your choice of bridesmaid jewelry.
