Friendship Jewelry Isn't Just for Kids Anymore

We all had them when we were kids: either half of heart-shaped friendship necklace that we shared with a best friend or a colorful string bracelet that you hand knotted with your friends and wore to profess your devotion to one another. Well, I’m here to tell you that friendship jewelry is alive and well, even with full grown women these days!

Commemorate a Gals’ Getaway Weekend

Living on Martha’s Vineyard, I often meet groups of traveling gals that are taking a trip together to commemorate an event like a big birthday, a reunion, or simply a ladies’ weekend getaway. What better way to remember the vacation than with a piece of jewelry that each member of the group takes home.

On one occasion a woman purchased 6 bracelets, one for herself and for each of five friends, as a surprise thank you gift to the friend that was the hostess, plus a souvenir for herself and the other four. She chose a different color combination for each girlfriend, based on her taste and preference.

It's fun to choose a different color combination for each girlfriend. These Trilogy bracelets come in 42 colors and are $44.

 

Wearable Vacation Souvenirs

Time together on the Vineyard can also be remembered with matching island bangles. Choose to have your specific island town destination engraved on the bracelet, or you can simply get the whole island and have “Martha’s Vineyard” engraved. One summer a group of visiting ladies who stayed in Edgartown each took home an Edgartown bangle with a different color charm on it to match her individual tastes and color preferences.

Martha's Vineyard bangles are a great way to remember summer, starting at $28

Mother-Daughter Jewelry

Mothers and daughters can have fun coordinating their jewelry as well. Once a mom and her grown daughter both fell in love with the same blue and green color palette I call Lagoon. Instead of deciding which one of them should buy the necklace, they each got a different style necklace in the same color. One ended up with the Trilogy 60-inch Necklace in Lagoon and the other got the Trilogy 3-Strand necklace in Lagoon. Each was a perfect fit for the individual and now whenever they wear their necklace they think of the other.

And for the mothers that have daughters that are still growing, there is the option to get a coordinating pair of bracelets or necklaces in the same color palette where one is in an adult size and the other is kid sized. A classy, colorful take on "Mommy and Me" jewelry.

Another mom found a Martha’s Vineyard island necklace in her favorite shade of turquoise blue, gifting her young daughter with the same exact necklace. They now wear them while together or apart to feel connected to one another and to the island.

This mother and daughter chose matching Martha's Vineyard necklaces in turquoise blue, $85

Matching mother daughter bracelets or necklaces make great gifts for special occasions like birthdays, communion, bat mitzvah, or simply to commemorate a fun trip together. Mommy and me jewelry is a colorful yet classy way to connect with your daughter.

MV necklaces are available in 8 colors, from $85

Memorialize a Special Day

Coordinating jewelry is a creative way to remember a special occasion shared with family and friends. Surprise a young gal at her first communion with a bracelet that coordinates with her God Mother’s bracelet, for example. Birthdays, Bat Mitvahs, family reunions and even a new addition to the family can all be celebrated with imaginative adornments in inspired color schemes. What will you dream up?

Whether you are celebrating family or commemorating a friendship that has stood the test of time, friendship jewelry is a thoughtful and sentimental way to stay connected. 

These sisters celebrated their trip to Martha's Vineyard with coordinating necklaces, aren't they sweet?
