    I want to get my BM's an engraved jewelry box as part of their gift. The issue is that I'm having a hard time deciding on what size jewelry box to get them, a smaller one or a larger one. Here are two I like, and the two diff sizes.

    # 1- Tell me what you think about the sizes

    and # 2- Do you have any other websites that have similar stuff? (so i can compare prices etc)

    Princess Jewelry Box

    Figaro Jewelry Box

    The rest of their gift will consist of their jewelry, I saw ear rings at Swarovski that I'd like to get, and also lil individual things for each girl. (3 girls total)

    Gracious.

      I think I like the square one better, but I like that you can put 2 lines of personalized message on the round one. Sorry..not much help I guess!!
      I did just come across this website though...Engraved Gifts to say thank you... it's from the UK but they ship overseas.
      Oh...and I found these on ebay if you're interested! Wedding 5 Bridal Party Personalized Tote Bags - eBay (item 200262832476 end time Oct-19-08 07:36:55 PDT)

      Good Luck!

          Hey Quelicious. I only like the square one out of those choices. Personally, I would prefer a smaller jewelry box, cuz I like to have a few little boxes that sort my stuff into categories. Perhaps that's the anal in me, but when it's all in one big thing, you can't see everything.

          I can't offer you up places to look for alternative ones yet, cuz I don't have much time to internet browse today, but I will look for some later....

          Oh, just had a thought, does it have to be sterling silver? I know that places like Ten Thousand Villages have really cool ones. Something like that would be more my style though, so ti might not be what you're looking for...

          Ok, so I couldn't resist and went to check if Ten Thousand Vilages had anything cool. No time to upload the pics, so just going to post links...

            I like the 2nd one best. Very cool idea by the way.

            Check out Etsy.com for jewelry..there are some awesome things on there and very reasonably priced.

                oh I love the tree of life ones. I think they have so much meaning. Maybe putting a nice letter to each of your bridesmaids in it would be a nice touch. I'm going to have to save that link!!
