As a bride-to-be, your bridal party has likely been by your side throughout the entire wedding planning journey–from dress fittings to bridal shower planning to your bachelorette party itinerary. So it's a great idea to gift your bridesmaids with something special to show them how much you appreciate their constant support.
Bridal party gifts don’t have to be over-the-top gestures but simply a small token of gratitude. While we love gift baskets and a monogrammed robe or pajamas (which are definitely cute, but a little expected), there's no better gift than a shiny new piece of jewelry they can wear every day. Dainty studs and stackable rings are fail-safe trinkets almost every bridal party would appreciate. Pendant necklaces and signet rings are classic and versatile pieces that you can personalize with your crew's initials or zodiac signs.
When shopping for the ultimate jewelry gift for your bridesmaids, consider their personal styles, your budget, the overall quality, and personalization options. To help narrow down your choices, we researched and rounded up the best options with these key features in mind. Our favorite customizable pieces are the Aurate Engravable Signet Ring and the Kendra Scott Davis Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet. Looking for something to show your love? Go with the Blue Nile LOVE Mismatched Stud Earrings.

What to Look for in Jewelry Gifts for Bridesmaids
Style and Personal Taste
You'll want to give your squad an item that they'll love and actually wear regularly–whether you get them all something unique or go with a matching group gift. Start by thinking about their style and tastes. Are they a group that loves glitz and sparkle or a more minimalist aesthetic? Do they wear gold or silver jewelry? Do they all have their ears pierced? Once you've determined the details, look for options that might work best for all of your bridesmaids.
Thoughtfulness and Personalization Options
It's important to put thought into the gift you give your bridal party, as they've been by your side since the beginning of the wedding planning process. The best way to add an extra special touch to each gift is by engraving it with something personal–whether that's their initials, their zodiac sign, or an inside joke that's unique to your friendship. We especially love the Kendra Scott Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet, which offers complimentary engraving with your purchase.
How much should I spend on a bridesmaid gift?
That will depend on your own personal budget, and gifts don't need to be expensive to show you care. But of course, it's always meaningful to give them something extra special on the day of your wedding. Generally, bridesmaids' gifts tend to hover around $75 to $150 per bridesmaid.
What jewelry is best for bridesmaids on the wedding day?
While jewelry isn't necessary for bridesmaids on the big day, it certainly helps elevate their overall look. And it's up to the bride to decide exactly which accessories the bridal party should wear. Understated and dainty accents are always a good choice, as they'll add to the ensemble without overpowering it. Bright diamonds and jewels are great for black-tie weddings, while simple studs or floral bracelet designs are perfect for a spring ceremony.
