Bridesmaids gift inspiration

California, Favors & Gifts, Jewelry & Accessories

A couple of recently-engaged friends have asked me for suggestions on bridesmaid gift ideas. One of my favorite recent finds? Initial pendant necklaces by Ariel Gordon Jewelry, a new line based in Los Angeles. Ariel Gordon left the PR world and honed her jewelry design techniques working with Maya Brenner (another fave of mine!) before launching her eponymous line in 2008. Each initial pendant is crafted by hand and strung on a delicate bead chain. They're available with (from $150) or without (from $105) a diamond, and are simple-yet-striking—definitely a special piece your bridesmaids will want to wear again and again. And for more ideas, check out this slideshow of bridesmaid gifts. —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Southern California
