If you can say to your bridesmaids “you’ll totally wear it again and again” about the dress you’ve chosen for them without crossing your fingers behind your back, then truly you’ve done your part. But, if your pals have gone above and beyond (cheerleading through each of your nine dress fittings; hand-making not one, not two, but 50 paper pom-poms; and holding your hair back as you’re puking your brains out after your bachelorette party went all kinds of wrong -- or right, depending on your worldview) then you should absolutely give them a token of your appreciation.
And nothing says BFFs like a locket, especially when it holds a photo of each of you, side by side. Aw. These, by Verabel Jewelry, are vintage brass finds retooled with 16k gold and decorated with artful designs, even more of which -- from owls to peacock feathers -- are available online. The kaleidoscope-style motifs are actually illustrations by artist Alyson Fox whose often-geometric, always-gorgeous work can be browsed and bought here. Prices start at around $27 for the tiniest of lockets and top out at about $65 for the Verabel + Fox collaboration pieces.
