This week on all my press visits I've seen some fantastic jewellery which in my own opinion is always the very best choice of gifts for bridesmaids.
My absolute favourite - I bought myself something - is the Italian jewellery brand Raris. Interestingly enough the new and very, very cute collection 'Cuckoo', has already been ordered by the V&A. Made from brass and coming in both silver, gold and rose gold, there is a selection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets etc all in adorable bird and heart shapes, out this January - prices from £55 (
The best website to browse all brands across all styles and price ranges is Astley Clarke ( From pearls to yellow gold, crystals and precious stones I guarantee you'll find something for all tastes and budgets! They often have special deals and sales so it's worth checking just for that.
Finally, if you are in need of something cheap and cheerful as a token gift (or even to accessorise your bridesmaids outfits) check out Allusions at BHS for crystal necklaces, earrings and pretty headdresses prices from £4. Freedom at Topshop have some gorgeous and quirky yet feminine pieces - prices from £6. I especially love the pearl and flower chiffon bracelets £8 and Miss Selfridge do a very similar necklace, £15.
