Have you looked at Etsy? Loads of UK sites and many, many jewellery sellers. Lots of them personalise too.

I'm getting my bridesmaid a necklace and earrings set. Something set with sapphire and diamond so they can possibly have them as their "something old" and "something blue" for their own wedding in the future.

I got mine a 'double circle' necklace which are quite on trend at the mo that I gave to them on the morning of the wedding; and a Rituals gift set each that were given to them during the speeches to say thanks for everything.

Love the jewellery idea, but agree with Redglitter go for something generic they'd wear again that doesn't focus on the wedding date, maybe their initial on a pendant if you want something personalised? Have a fab wedding!x

I like the idea but agree it's not personal to them. I brought my bridesmaids a simple jewellery set for them to wear on the day that went with the outfits.
I made them each a memory photo book from when we first became friends up until the wedding day using hobby craft scrapbooks and cute stickers etc. They loved those and we spent time looking through them the morning of the wedding and rembering good times together.

We got a little clutch bag that matched our dresses for the day (use mine all the time!) with some mini make-up essentials in a mini bag sized bottle of perfume (all different). They were amazing!

That’s a great idea moreismore, lucky bms!

Oh I'm loving the mirror idea.

Both girls are hopeless with earrings and always lose them.

I'm off to google mirrors

The necklace is pretty but do they were things like that? It’s a lot to spend if they might only wear them on the day and the date is significant to you but I agree it won’t necessarily mean much to them after the fact.

I’ve been a couple of pendants as bm gifts and haven’t worn them since because they weren’t my taste. I much prefer earrings and think they tend to be more versatile but I’ve had fellow bms who don’t have pierced ears so it’s always going to be hard to find one thing which suits everyone!

I agree the necklace is lovely but the engraving wouldn’t be relevant to them.

Is there jewellery they could wear on the day? Maybe something timeless like pearl studs/drops? Or I got each of my bridesmaids earrings in a different semi-precious stone, all the different colours looked great on the day and they have all been worn again lots.

The necklace is a nice idea but personally I wouldn't wear it when the engraving isn't really significant to me.

It's a nice idea.
I struggled with this.
In the end I got them some really nice Vera wang handbag mirrors which I think I got engraved, can't remember!

I have no idea what to get my 2 adult bridesmaids.

I was thinking of a links of London necklace and having our wedding date in Roman numerals
