Now that you and your doting bridesmaids have decided on their dresses for the big day, it's time to think about the right type of accessories to adorn your ladies in waiting. While you don't want your bridal party swimming in diamonds (or maybe you do!), they should still appear polished and elegant. Thanks to these Houston area stores, shopping for bridesmaid jewelry can be as much fun — and fruitful — as finding the perfect set of dresses.
While Anthropologie may have a bohemian-luxe flair to it, much of the brand's latest jewelry selection is refreshingly pared down. Your bridesmaids will be perfectly accented by their delicate drop earrings or thin layered necklaces. You can mix and match so each girl is specially accessorized, or since it's a larger brand, you have the luxury of buying the same style for your entire court. And, maybe some for yourself too!
Cakewalk Style Shop
This gem of a boutique (pun intended!) feels like you're walking into your best friend's cozy home for a tête-à-tête while shopping your heart out. Cakewalk boasts an entire wall of bridal-party perfect jewelry, including gorgeous cabochon rings in a rainbow of colors and even personalized gem necklaces that showcase your bridesmaids' initials — in a subtle yet totally charming way.
Making your bridesmaids feel special on your big day doesn't have to come with a high price tag, thanks to B. Ellen. The jewelry selection at this Cypress boutique will please even the most budget-conscious of bridal parties, with many pieces falling in the $35 to $55 range. But that doesn't mean they don't pack a glamorous punch; B. Ellen's pieces will make your friends look and feel like a million dollars.
For the bride seeking an uber-minimal accent to her bridesmaids' looks, French Cuff is where she'll find just that among a plethora of hip designer names. Jewelry brands include fashion-girl favorites Chan Luu, Elizabeth & James, and Gorjana to name a few. The best part? Your bridesmaids can wear their versatile, timeless finds to many more events for years to come.
A Texas native, jewelry designer Kendra Scott has built an empire on girly, event-perfect sparkle. Her designs are both graceful and amazingly fun to wear. Even the store experience is top-notch, with in-the-know salespeople offering up suggestions, often accompanied by a glass of wine. The store feels like it was meant for a group of girlfriends to hang out, try on, and have a total blast seeking out those special pieces. You can even customize your choices using their one-of-a-kind Color Bar — how's that for unique? Read real brides' reviews here!
