Anyone who’s been a bride will tell you: you can’t do it without a support network of besties by your side. And while it’s an honour and privilege to be a bridesmaid, the role can often require a lot of time, effort and money as well! In the lead up to the big day, you’ll no doubt want to thank your bridal party – and show just how much you appreciate having them in your life. But finding a gift that’s special, personal and wedding-budget-friendly can be easier said than done.
That’s where Links of London comes in. A piece of beautiful jewellery is an enduring gift, especially when carefully chosen with your friend in mind. To help you find the perfect pieces, we’ve teamed up with this British brand to bring you some of our favourite, most thoughtful (and affordable) ideas from their classic bridesmaids selection. These pieces are so lovely, you might just want to buy one for yourself, too…
The best bit? Links even offers an engraving service, both in store and online, making it super easy to customise these presents. A sentimental touch your bridesmaids will love. Oh, and if you wanted to choose matching jewellery together, make a trip with your girls to any Links store, where bridal parties get the royal treatment – complete with personal shopper, complimentary prosecco and chocolates! Sounds good to us!
Want to gift your bestie something more bling? This elegant sterling silver horseshoe necklace adds a little sparkle, and is bound to bring your friend good luck.
A classic piece that can be worn by itself or layered with other styles, this simple silver chain is pure prettiness. For something more unique, add a personalised charm – or perhaps a few of them – to symbolise your bridesmaid’s individuality.
A perfect addition to an unadorned chain necklace or bracelet, we love the idea of giving your girls engraved gold discs. Add their initials or the date of your big day to make it special. (You can even engrave this charm on both sides!) And that’s not to mention how gorgeous charms look when stacked together on one twinkling bracelet or added to a favourite piece of jewellery worn every day. This gift is as versatile as it is thoughtful.
A pair of precious earrings is what every woman wants but doesn’t necessarily think to buy for herself. Gift your bestie a pair of effortlessly lovely studs. Or why not make a grander statement of gratitude to your maid of honour with a pair of glittering diamonds?
Remember the friendship bracelets you used to make with your pals in school? Think of this as the adult version of those. We love this chic, understated look and, better yet, there’s space to add an engraved message.
Or perhaps, for the more sartorially inclined bridesmaid, this beaded wrist chain is the perfect idea. It draws upon the layering trend we love and comes in a romantic shade of rose gold.
And what if someone in your squad isn’t a jewellery wearer? We recommend Links of London’s silver compact mirror, instead – a gift that’ll never go out of style. This sophisticated mirror makes for an elegant keepsake and is bound to come in handy for teary-eyed touch-ups on your wedding day.
