New York Ideas We Love

Giving Good Gifts

Our favorite kind of bridesmaid gift? One that’s not about your wedding. "I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to wear what I bought them every day," says Danielle Rosen, 29, a Manhattan publicist. Rosen decided on pendant necklaces, with engraved charms, tiny diamonds and clusters of gems like sapphires, citrines and rubies, by Westchester designer (and celeb favorite) Mauri Pioppo. "The charms are classic and will never go out of style," says the bride. Plus, you can customize each pendant with your choice of 14 different colored stones and a variety of diamonds. Love Letter pendants in white or yellow gold, $390 and up, available at Fragments, fragments.com.
