Jewelry For the Maids

I have been back and fourth on jewelry for my 4 bridesmaids. I originally thought way back when I first started planning (before we even picked out dresses) that I would want them to wear pearl necklaces. But then once we picked out their dress I knew pearls were not the way to go as the dress has a rhinstone brooche on the side.

So I've been searching hi & low for a cheap alternative and something they could definately wear again. Then yesterday I came across a tutorial on a toggle clasp necklace on Vintage Glam Blog & if you are a member of the knot you know about Vintageglam and her GORGEOUS wedding so I was like I think I could do this! So today I'm going to pick up the materials and see how it goes and it is really so simple that I believe I could make these for myself and friends as Christmas and birthday gifts. Plus, I've always wanted to try my hand at jewelry making and this is just simple enough for a first project.

So tell me what you think, will this necklace go with their dresses? Or is it too simple or should they just not wear any jewelry at all (except earrings of course)?

Here is their dresses:
