    jewelry gift ideas

    Jewelry is one of the most meaningful and timeless gifts to give to someone you love. Whether it’s Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday, your anniversary, or just because, there’s always an occasion to show appreciation by giving her a little something with a lot of meaning. Finding the perfect jewelry gift for your wife, girlfriend, mother, or friend requires thought and effort, but it shows you’re attentive to her style and know her well. But if you don’t know where to start jewelry shopping or are coming up short on ideas, we’re here to lend an expert hand with our jewelry gift guide of 30 necklacesbraceletsearringsrings, and pendants she’s sure to love.  

    Jewelry gifting guidelines 

    Before you begin jewelry shopping in earnest, we have a few tips to help you become an expert jewelry shopper in her eyes. 

    1. Extra sparkle does not always mean extra-special. Some women love bold bling, but others prefer simple, dainty jewelry. Just a little sparkle goes a long way. 
    2. The best jewelry is not necessarily the most expensive. A ruby will nearly always cost more than an amethyst, but she might rather have a purple stone over a red one. Also, 24k gold is more expensive than 14k or 18k, but it’s also softer and not the best material for everyday wear. 
    3. Quality is crucial. Purchasing jewelry for the woman you love is more than an investment in an accessory--it’s an investment in her. Quality is important for the material, stone, or overall design of a piece. If you’re not sure of what metals are great for jewelry, read our rhodium jewelry FAQ and guide to hypoallergenic metals
    4. Her preferences are a priority. If you want her to love the jewelry you buy, it’s important to know her. Don’t pick the gift based on your likes or dislikes. You should know what type or style of jewelry is most important to her, what she feels confident wearing, and her personality. 

    How to find the perfect jewelry gift for her 

    Here’s a list of what to keep in mind when jewelry shopping. All, or at least some, of the items on the list will certainly be important to you: 

    • Her style: Is she a maximalist or a minimalist? Does she like bold or muted colors? Is she unique or trendy? Study her style so you can be sure she’ll love and wear your jewelry gift. 
    • Special meaning: If you’re shopping for a birthday or anniversary, birthstone jewelry is a great choice. But she may also love a particular stone for its meaning rather than her birth month. Learn the meanings of gemstones or the meanings of birthstones so you can surprise her with a thoughtful and personal gift. 
    • The occasion: If you’re gifting your girlfriend but not proposing, she may not appreciate diamond jewelry. If it’s your anniversary, you can choose a gift that corresponds with the material or gemstone of your anniversary year. The holiday season with its many festivities is a great time to give statement cocktail jewelry. 
    • Your budget: Even if you have a limit on the amount you can spend, you can still easily find beautiful, high-quality jewelry. Many times the differences between a $100 piece and a $1,000 piece are difficult to spot. You’ll find jewelry gift ideas by budget below.
