Whether you’re in the middle of planning your upcoming nuptials or you’ve just started putting together a Pinterest board for your dream wedding, you’ve likely already thought of who your bridesmaids will be. Whether you’ve known them since nursery, bonded over shots at Fresher’s Week or it was bestie at first sight across the office – these are the girls that have had your back, and the day of your wedding is no exception. From holding the veil to ensuring champagne is always on hand, they’re your biggest fans on your wedding day – and will be for years to come.
So, if you’re looking for a way to thank them, you can tick that off your wedding to-do list because the style experts here at H. Samuel have done the legwork for you. From meaningful talismans that your bridesmaids can stack to symbolic pendants your maid of honour can wear on the big day and treasure forever. We’ve rounded up the perfect presents to show your best girls just how much you care. Plus, you’ll find some sparkling treasures designed with the bride in mind (because if you can’t buy presents for yourself on your wedding day, when can you?) Without further ado, scroll down to discover style to make you (and your wedding party) smile.
Sentimental gifts with a personal touch are about so much more than just a piece of jewellery. Choose something your friends will wear on the daily, and that focuses on something deeper than trends – like meaningful gemstones. Capturing the illuminating essence of nature’s most infallible guide, the North Star is the inspiration behind our new-in ‘Find Your North Star’ collection (priced from £49.99). Adorned with a star-shaped talisman, the pieces are crafted using semi-precious stones, each bringing a unique meaning, from luck and love to protection and prosperity. Plus, they can be layered with other pieces in the collection, like the celestial lockets and coloured enamel necklaces, for the ultimate expression of individuality.
We’ll take any excuse to add a shiny accessory (or two) to an ensemble – especially one that’s going to be immortalised in hundreds of photos. Ideally though, you want a bridesmaid gift to be sentimental (as well as sparkly). Something that speaks to their personality and honours your amazing friendship. After all, they are some of the most important people in your life. Enter our Circle collection (priced from £229). Featuring a round diamond pendant designed to symbolise your everlasting friendship, it’s perfect for your BFF’s. After all, everyone knows diamonds are forever.
Serving as the bride’s No. 1 means the maid of honour is kept on her toes from bridal shower to dancefloor. So, what can you gift the woman who has helped with every step of the wedding planning journey? Cue the Infinity collection (priced from £229), featuring the swirling infinity motif, this edit of diamond jewellery symbolises your eternal friendship, and is a thoughtful token she will wear long after the ceremony. You could even get one too, so you’re both rocking matching necklaces (or bracelets).
When you’re planning a wedding, lists are your life. You’ve sorted *The Dress*. The rings are ticked off. Fabulous shoes? Check. Oh, and your bridal lingerie is all planned, too. But what about your jewellery for the big day? Whether you’re self-gifting or it’s a present from your groom, these beautiful pieces are designed with the bride in mind, because wedding day jewellery goes way beyond the ring.
Every bride-to-be wants to dazzle on her wedding day, and while selecting your wedding jewellery can seem daunting, it doesn’t have to be. If in doubt, reach for the classics. Pieces like our diamond studs (£299), coordinating diamond pendants (£399) and tennis bracelets (£299) will give your look a serious glow-up. The best bit? They’re timeless, so they never go out of style, they’ll look just as elegant now as they will in 25 years. Win-win.
The first dance, favours, vows, the perfect something blue – these are all wedding traditions that help to make your wedding day feel unlike any other. As jewellery lovers, we may be a little biased, but a new sapphire necklace (£69.99) or topaz earrings (£69.99) is one of the more creative ways to check off ‘something blue’. Plus, you’ll be handling the ‘something new’ on your list as well. Said to bring the wearer good luck, it’s the perfect sparkle that will have you feeling blue in the best possible way.
