When planning your wedding, the chances are top of your speed dial list will be your Bridesmaids. With you every step of the way, from the emotional ‘ I said YES!’ phone call to the morning after ‘ hen-do headache ‘ and finding the all-important dress. They’ve been through it all with you.

Once your table plan is finalised and every detail has been arranged it’s time to start thinking about saying thank you to your loved ones who have helped you in the run up to your big day. The tradition of the Bridesmaid can be traced back to ancient Rome, where for a wedding to be legally binding, a couple required 10 people to witness their nuptials. Female witnesses where required to dress just like the bride in order to confuse vengeful spirits!

When buying bridesmaid gifts jewellery is the perfect option. A timeless piece they can wear on your wedding day, but also keep forever – two birds, one gorgeous sparkly stone.

Now where to start? We are seeing a trend for bridesmaids to wear different dresses, but in similar styles, with the same look and style of your special day. The same can be said for the jewellery you choose for them. Your Bridesmaids are individuals and will have different tastes -don’t be afraid to choose a piece just for them which you know they will love & compliment their style. Why not browse our stunning selection of diamond jewellery and give the ultimate bridesmaid gift, they do say diamond are a girl’s best friend after all!


True friends are after all just like Diamonds – bright, beautiful, valuable and always in style! It was thought in ancient times that diamonds were splinters of fallen stars and that brought bravery & courage. Nowadays they simply symbolize eternity and love.

Don’t forget the little ones in your wedding party too, Flower Girls can be tricky to buy for, especially a meaningful gift that will last a lifetime, however Sarah Layton in Whalley has this covered with their excellent range of children’s gifts, jewellery and keepsakes. We love the Kit Heath dinky diamond heart necklace.
