A bridesmaid gift is one of the many (many) things on a bride’s to-do list, but it’s one of the most exciting items to shop. You’ve thoughtfully chosen your closest friends and/or family members to stand by your side as you say, “I do”, and in turn, they’re doing everything they can to make you feel supported and celebrated throughout your wedding journey from the bridal shower to bachelorette festivities to the big day. While it’s not totally required, a bridesmaid gift is just that little something extra, a thoughtful gesture to show how much you appreciate them being such a big part of your wedding. Because these gifts are personal, it’s fun to choose an item that’s both meaningful and of use to your bridesmaids—and right now, a locket necklace is the perfect gift if you want to take the jewelry route.

While lockets feel quite nostalgic, modern versions are having a moment right now, increasing in popularity like coin and pendant necklaces. With a trendy feel, modern-day lockets come both vintage-inspired and super sleek, so there is a range to choose from for all the different tastes that likely make up your bridal party. Another reason a locket makes for a beautiful bridesmaid gift is that it can be personalized whether you choose to have each bridesmaids’ initials inscribed on a locket, place a photo of you and each one of your bridesmaids inside one, or choose a locket with a unique gemstone or charm as part of the design. And because lockets are having a moment, there are plenty of options to choose from at every price point from classic ovals to diamond-adorned versions and modern shapes. There’s also no reason you have to choose the same locket design for each bridesmaid—to make each girl feel special, it’s even more thoughtful to choose an individual style rather than go the uniform route.

If you think a locket sounds like the perfect bridesmaids' gift, ahead, shop our edit of 22 styles from under-$50 versions to splurge-worthy, fine jewelry designs.
