Diamond Studs

Is there anything more classic than a pair of diamond studs? Diamond studs make for a great everyday look, but also transition well to complete a night out look or for a formal event. “Personally, less is more. So with that being said, diamond earrings, with a diamond bracelet and ring. You want everything to complement each other and not overpower the outfit. The little black dress is usually enough for a woman, but the diamonds add that bit of sparkle to her outfit.” –Goldsmith Jewelers Inc., North Royalton, OH


Oversized hoop earrings are back in a big way. Giving nods to the '80s and '90s, hoop earrings are a fashion staple. Diamond hoop earrings should be in every woman’s wardrobe and just like the dangle earrings, size doesn't matter -- pick a size that matches her style.

Shoulder Duster Earrings

Long dangle earrings – or shoulder dusters – were omnipresent on the red carpet and runways this past season. Regardless of length, long earrings are great gift for every woman. If she is more traditional, opt for a mid-length drop. If she is trendy or fashion forward, go for the true shoulder duster length.  


Pear-Shaped Necklaces

Jewelry often serves as a symbol reminder of strength, protection or connection to family. Shield shapes are very popular in jewelry and with pendants, shields can give off extra super hero vibes. 

Tassel Necklaces

Necklaces with tassels of silver, gold or gemstones are the perfect holiday gift. Long necklace with a single tassel are equally as classic as lariat style necklaces with two tassels that can be worn multiple ways.  


Choker necklaces are making a comeback in a big way, and they are definitely here to stay. It's a stylish way to add a statement to your look. “I love the new take on chokers! Also layering them is so great as well with long necklaces.” –Elements, Ltd., Des Moines, IA

Y-Shape Necklaces

Y-Shape necklaces are on trend yet have great staying power, so you know she will wear this necklace for years to come. Y-shape necklaces can be simple with diamond or gemstone accents or more substantial with pendants.


Tip: when opting to gift a ring, make sure the relationship isn’t at a point where a small gift box would have an unintended meaning.

Gemstone Rings

Colorful gemstones are a great way to make the gift meaningful. Pick out the recipients favorite color, a sentimental birthstone or something that reminds you of an attribute of theirs. The personal touch won’t go unnoticed.

Fancy Shape Rings

For non-engagement ring gifts, think statement rings with fancy shaped gemstones and diamonds – especially marquise, oval and baguettes.


Statement Cuffs

Statement-making cuffs are a great fashion accessory. Look for cuff bracelets with open work that allows the skin to shine through.

Charm Bracelets

These aren't your grandmother's charms. Charms are back in style as a special way to mark life’s most precious moments. 

Other Jewelry Gift Ideas

Gifts Under $500

Fine jewelry doesn’t have to break the bank. Look for gifts under $500 that have versatility and feel personal like wrap bracelets that can be transformed to long necklaces, or jewelry with messages that show your love.

Stackable Rings & Bracelets

Help her start her own arm party or ring stack by giving the gift of stackable jewelry. The more the merrier when it comes to accessorizing. Plus, you can help her collection grow when the next milestone or occasion comes around. “Layering on every surface is a fashion must this season! Build your jewelry wardrobe one unique piece at a time.” –Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

Rose Gold

We're tickled pink by the blush hues of rose gold jewelry. Rose gold complements just about any skin tone and has a romantic appeal. Go for a classic piece set in rose gold, or try a style with complementary gemstones. 


Pearls are always a classic choice that will never go out of style. Choose a piece of pearl jewelry that can become an instant heirloom. “One can create a great jewelry wardrobe using a strand of black and white pearls and changing ruby or emerald enhancers with chains and pearls.” –Diamonds, Pearls & Jade, Columbus, OH

Colored Gemstones Set in Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is an affordable luxury, so consider choosing a piece with colored gemstones set in sterling silver. The bright stones are sure to pop against the metallic look.

The Jewelry Store Experience

Don’t forget about giving the gift of the shopping experience. A gift card to your local jeweler will let her experience the joy of shopping for something that speaks to her. Be sure to talk to your jeweler about what options are available for the amount of the card and dress up your gift by wrapping it in a jewelry box.
