 Best Jewelry Gifts

Byrdie / Kristin Kempa

There’s perhaps no gifting category that’s more timeless or classic than jewelry. And contrary to popular belief, it really is applicable for everyone, regardless of their identifying gender; it’s something that the recipient will always have and can treasure for years to come, no matter whether they wear it everyday or on special occasions.  Not to mention that jewelry is a good option for pretty much any and every situation that calls for a present, largely because the jewelry space is expansive with a capital E—we’re not just talking about gold and diamonds.

There’s no shortage of different types of jewelry, which, yes, also happen to ring in at all different price points. So, shopping tip, when you’re considering gifting a piece of jewelry, you’ll want to consider what class it falls into. Generally speaking, there are three tiers. On the one end of the spectrum, you have costume or fashion jewelry, which tends to be made of synthetic materials and is the most affordable. Fine or designer jewelry is made of real metals and precious stones and is the most expensive. Semi-fine or semi-precious jewelry falls somewhere in the middle, both in terms of price point and the quality (think plated metals and semi-precious stones). Another helpful tip to keep in mind: Remember that jewelry comes in different sizes, so make sure you have the recipient’s sizing info handy, particularly for pieces such as rings and bracelets.
