As the end of the year gets closer and the holiday season fast approaches, thinking of gifts for your loved ones can be a daunting process. While you may have a few gift ideas, such as a stunning piece of jewelry, you still have the difficult decision of choosing between different elements. Should you gift earrings or a necklace? Gold or silver jewelry? Diamonds or rubies? Instead of feeling overwhelmed, consider our holiday jewelry gift guide so you can confidently gift a stunning design they will cherish for years.
Things to Consider Before Buying Holiday Jewelry
Before choosing between earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces, consider whom you’re buying for and what they love about jewelry. Once these questions are answered, you can be more specific in your selection.
Gold or Silver
While some women are happy to mix and match metals, others have a strong preference for either silver or gold. Take note of which metal your loved one tends to wear more often, and choose a piece of jewelry that matches. On the other hand, men who work in labor-intensive jobs may require a ring with strong metal to withstand their daily work.
Minimal or Sparkly
Consider whether you’re looking for jewelry that sparkles dramatically or if your recipient leans more towards a minimal and subtle style. This question can help you avoid buying holiday statement earrings for someone who wears classic style jewelry and vice versa.
Some metals such as nickel can irritate the skin, so be sure to look for hypoallergenic jewelry, including sterling silver. If in doubt, you can always create custom holiday earrings or a necklace so you can handpick the design, metal and gemstones.
Holiday Jewelry Ideas
With our stunning suggestions, you won’t be stuck for jewelry gift ideas this holiday season. Instead, you can choose the perfect jewelry to complement a holiday outfit for everyday wear or as a stand-out statement piece for special occasions.
Colored diamonds can make any holiday gift feel extra special. The beauty and rareness that comes with colored diamonds are sure to make any piece of jewelry stand out. It’s a perfect option if your loved one enjoys wearing unique pieces at festive parties or special events.
Unusual gemstones are a more affordable option than colored diamonds. They come in a vast range of colors and sizes, so you can create beautiful holiday necklaces or earrings to suit the festive season or choose a gemstone in your recipient’s favorite color. Rubies, emeralds and blue sapphires are classic, timeless gemstones that anyone can wear regardless of age.
From bracelets to necklaces to earrings, pearls are a beautiful winter gift and provide a stunning accessory that you can wear dressed up or with a casual outfit. Not only that, but you can be the first to give some elegant pearl jewelry, which can become a family heirloom passed down to future generations.
Colorless diamonds pair beautifully with silver and gold. You can opt for larger diamond stud earrings if your loved one enjoys making a statement or choose a necklace with multiple smaller diamonds for a subtler design. If you’re planning on proposing this holiday season, you can express your love with a colorless solitaire diamond ring or a custom creation.
For the woman who loves wearing simple outfits yet indulges in showing off her accessories, statement earrings are the perfect holiday gift. There are various earring styles to choose from, such as studs with vibrant gemstones, gold and diamond hoops, or chandelier earrings that glimmer in the light.
Chokers and collar necklaces are classic designs that seem to trend every decade. Whether your loved one prefers a diamond necklace or a yellow gold chain-link choker, a stylish necklace can make the perfect finishing touch to any holiday outfit and make your loved one feel cherished.
Bracelets are a stunning addition to any jewelry collection and are a fun way to complete any outfit, from cocktail dresses to jeans and a shirt. Cuff bracelets suit bold and outgoing personalities, while a diamond tennis bracelet looks stunning on a delicate wrist.
Why give one ring when you can give two or three? Stackable rings are the perfect way for anyone to showcase their personality, as there are so many design combinations. You can choose slender rings with small colored gemstones, mix and match metals such as rose with yellow gold, or add style with engraved rings.
