Elisa Pendant Necklace

Kendra Scott


Kendra Scott’s best-selling necklace is the Elisa Gold Pendant Necklace in Iridescent Drusy, which makes sense considering how timeless and versatile the piece is. The pendant's slight twinkle makes the necklace special enough for a loved one's nuptials, but understated enough for everyday wear, too. You’ve likely seen this brand on Hollywood residents, like Zendaya and Blake Lively, proving you don't need to spend a fortune for celebrity-approved jewelry.

Medium Chain Necklace



Simple gold chains are undeniably trendy right now, and there’s no better place to turn for the style than the ethically-sourced, sustainably-made retailer AUrate. The affordable jewelry brand is on a mission to make fine jewelry less expensive by cutting out the middleman and producing some items on a made-to-order basis to avoid extra costs. For yourself or the members of your bridal party, this is where to shop for carefully crafted gold chains, like the Medium Chain Necklace in gold vermeil and other minimalist styles, for fair prices.

Sapphire Choker



Mejuri is another retailer that’s had a spike in popularity over the past few years, now with four brick and mortar stores after initially being an online-only retailer. The brand keeps costs down by producing limited quantities of pieces and selling direct-to-consumer, sans unnecessary middlemen. This pretty necklace falls at the collarbone for a delicate, somewhat airy look and is also a great addition to any necklace layering.

Initial Disc Necklace

Made by Mary


With 351,000 Instagram followers, Made by Mary is definitely no small brand, but it’s also still likely you haven’t heard of the jewelry company yet. Allow us to introduce you by way of the Initial Disc Necklace. Each gold-, rose gold-, or silver-filled pendant is hand crafted with your selection of script, Arial, or typewriter font for the letter engraving. Initial necklaces are classic bridal party gifts because they’re special, individualized presents and also something your bridesmaids will actually wear again.

Fallon Baguette Bow Studs

Moda Operandi


Moda Operandi, the online marketplace for straight-off-the-runway looks, isn’t as expensive as you’d expect. These Baguette Bow Stud Earrings, for example, look pricey, but you can actually get a pair for just $75. The studs are right on theme for a wedding, with the subtle pizzazz and festive shape, but you can also check out the retailer’s perfectly cute huggies and another very apt cuff bracelet decorated with the word “always.”

Huggies are in right now, but they’re also one of those timeless accessories looks that’s never really out. That trendy-classic combination makes for an ideal bridesmaids gift, and Linjer’s mini gold hoops feature removable freshwater pearls so you basically get two different earring styles in one affordable pair.
