Top Jewelry Gift Picks For Her
Classic Diamond Solitaire Earrings
A classic pair of diamond studs never go out of style. And gifting a pair of diamond studs is always a sure win! Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all.
If the woman you’re shopping for doesn’t already own a pair of diamond stud earrings, we recommend gifting her the most classic (and highly desired) diamond stud style: round brilliant cut diamond studs. If the woman you’re shopping for already owns a pair of diamond studs, we recommend gifting her either an upgraded pair (with larger diamonds), a pair that features a different diamond shape, or a pair with a different precious metal used for its setting. Or, if she already has plenty of diamond studs (lucky her!), going with diamond drop earrings is another excellent and classic diamond holiday gift option.
Yellow Gold Hoop Earrings
Yellow gold hoop earrings are one of the biggest accessory trends of 2019. And luckily, they’re also a timeless option, so they’ll stay in style for decades to come.
One of our favorite yellow gold hoop styles of the moment is an oversized, diamond set pair like the stunning set pictured above. These hoops are dazzling and bold enough to be a statement piece, yet still elegant and tasteful thanks to their slim design.
When you pick out hoops for her, consider her personal style and where she might want to wear her hoops. If she loves to dress up for a night out on the town or turn heads with her everyday style, go for a larger sized hoop with a bangle effect. Or if she prefers a more understated look, go for a smaller, yet still brilliant pair of gold and diamond hoops.
Fancy Shaped Diamond Studs
One of the best things about diamond studs is that they come in so many different styles. Round diamonds are great for creating a more classic look with your studs. But then, there are also many fancy shaped diamonds that can add a more unique look to diamond studs. (Note: If you don’t already know, “a fancy shaped diamond” is any diamond with a shape other than round, the most popular diamond shape.)
Fancy shaped diamond studs are classic and always elegant, yet they’re also trending for 2019. More and more women are seeking out fancy shaped diamonds since they can add a more unique and personalized touch to jewelry.
Cushion cut diamonds, as pictured above, are one of the most popular fancy diamond shapes of 2019. This vintage-style diamond shape is highly romantic and absolutely gorgeous.
Gemstone Stud Earrings
Give the gift of luxurious color with a pair of breathtaking gemstone stud earrings. Gemstone jewelry is another major 2019 jewelry trend. Gemstone jewelry is elegant yet eye-catching, making it a great way to add a bit of vibrance to any ensemble.
While all types of gemstone jewelry are trending for 2019, we recommend sticking with classic gemstones (or her birthstone gem) if you’re thinking of gifting gemstone jewelry this year. That way, she’ll be able to enjoy her gemstone jewelry now and for a lifetime. We also recommend opting for gemstone studs, since this is a highly versatile type of gemstone jewelry.
Not sure which gemstones are the most classic? There are three precious gemstones that are always in style: sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. No matter which you choose, these gemstones are sure to stun!
A Pendant Necklace
A diamond pendant necklace is a gift that will thrill her. Diamond pendant necklaces are, of course, absolutely gorgeous. Then, they’re also extremely wearable. A diamond pendant necklace looks as good with jeans and a t-shirt as it does with a black tie look. Diamond pendant necklaces also look lovely on their own or when worn with other necklaces to create a fun, layered look.
While all diamond pendant necklaces are beautiful, our top recommendation among diamond pendant necklaces is a round brilliant diamond pendant. Round brilliant diamonds are the most brilliant diamond shape (meaning, they are the most sparkly). So round brilliant pendants offer incredible shimmer that really “pops,” even when viewed from a distance. Round brilliant diamonds look lovely in all precious metals, including yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum. However, if you want the iciest look for your pendant necklace, we recommend selecting a white metal such as white gold, platinum, or sterling silver.
Top Jewelry Gift Picks for Him
Black Diamond Stud Earrings
Black diamond stud earrings are our top holiday gift pick for him! Men’s diamond studs are always a luxe, sophisticated option. But black diamond studs have a certain air of bold mystery that provides a handsome, utterly unique type of luxury. And while black diamonds are always timeless, this piece of jewelry also happens to be trending in 2019 (for both men and women).
If you’re shopping for a man with a more classic sense of style, we recommend going with round black diamond studs, since round diamonds are a more traditional option. Then, if you’re shopping for a man with a more modern or edgy sense of style, we recommend going for square princess cut black diamond studs, since these have a more distinctive and contemporary look.
