Has anyone ever had their bridesmaids wear their own jewelry?

Hey everyone, I know it's pretty common to buy your bridesmaids their jewelry but I'm really not into that kind of gift for them because usually they're purchased from somewhere cheap/They are worn once or they aren't as meaningful. I honestly can't afford anything super expensive because jewelry usually adds up. So I'm thinking about just asking my bridesmaids to wear their own jewelry within a specific color range. What do you think of this? Has any bride ever done that?
On a complete side note I will be purchasing a different kind of gift for them. I haven't quite decided yet but I'm thinking something a bit more personalized such as something from their favorite hobbies or even a spa gift card!

    I agree with your opinion on just getting something cheap and it’ll only be worn once is a waste. I think your bridesmaids would have jewelry they would want to wear for special occasions as well, so letting them wear their own will be fine.

    I purchased my bridesmaids all a amethyst crystal point necklace that represents my love of star wars (kyber crystal that goes into a light sabre to give it the sabers color) and witchcraft (Amethyst is a protective stone that helps to relieve stress and anxiety in your life, and the symptoms that accompany it, namely headaches, fatigues, and anxiety.)

    im also paying for their hair and make up rather than a gift trying to be a little pratical Smiley smile

    It has great reviews and found it through this site. I was going through ideas this site was offering and they came up. But someone mentioned Olive and Piper to me they are on etsy.

    I haven’t purchased anything from them yet since I still have a long way to go and still insure what to buy as gifts for the parents and wedding party.

    This is entirely up to you and your budget. I am keeping mine cost-effective, so my bridesmaids will be wearing their own jewelry, I just ask that they keep it simple and that it does not clash with their dress.

    My cousin got married in Feb 2020 and all the bridesmaids also wore their own jewelry

    It's all up to you if you want them matching or if you just don't care. I found a site that has affordable jewelry, I have no idea what to get them as gifts and I got them pretty awesome Bridesmaid boxes already. But since I found this site, I decided to get a set to match their personalities so they can have something to wear.

    I'll post the site if you want to take a peak, but don't feel like you have to pay for their jewelry.

    Everyone has their own individual tastes and having your bridesmaids be able to wear their own jewellery is more than fine. They'll probably appreciate being able to show off their collection or personalize their own outfit, especially if all the dresses are the same.

    I bought cufflinks for my groomsmen and my wife got bracelets for the bridesmaids but the gents still could pick their own watch (if they choose to wear one) and the ladies could wear their own hair piece or earrings.

    I bought my bridal party bracelets but told them to wear any earrings they wanted as long as they were gold colour based - They all ended up buying them from Olive & Piper (where I also bought mine) and I loved that they all had earrings to match their personal style (I did the same with dresses - just gave them each a colour and let them choose).

    I think there's nothing wrong with having them wear their own jewelry! I got my bridesmaids custom necklaces from a local shop but my cousin has a necklace with alot of sentimental value to it, so I will let her wear that if she wants!
    I think its very thoughtful to get them something that aligns more with their individual interests and hobbies!
