It’s been said in the past that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. For many women that still rings true. Whether they’re opening a package with diamond earrings, diamond rings, diamond pendants or some other kind of jewelry, the gift of jewelry is one that is universally beloved; especially around the holiday season.
If you’re wanting to get your special someone something really special for the holidays, you can’t go wrong with jewelry, especially diamond jewelry. But if you know next to nothing about what to buy, here’s a helpful guide to help you on your way:
Studies have shown that about half of American adults are married and that 40% of new marriages are remarriages. Any way you slice it, that’s a lot of potential for newlyweds to get diamond rings. But if you’re already happily married, you’ll hit an absolute home run if you can find your loved one a ring that they can wear in addition to their wedding ring. There are many types of diamond rings available and your local jewelers can help you find the perfect gift, whether it’s formal, fashionable or casual.
The big question is, which kind of diamond ring do you choose? The best way to do it is to think about what’s important to your significant other. Are they into floral patterns and flowers? If they are, you can get them a flowery design. Or maybe you can get a ring that has their birthstone in it. Ultimately you want your jewelers to help you find something they will be happy to wear.
For couples that are dating, but not engaged yet, take care when buying diamond rings. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with showing your love, but if one person isn’t quite ready to take the next big step, you don’t want to give the wrong impression if you give your loved one a diamond ring as a present. The best thing you can do is talk to your jewelers to find something that strikes the delicate balance you’re looking for.
Not to be outdone, but earrings can also be a good accent to other jewelry. Women all seem to have their favorite style of earring and you can easy find earrings they might be able to wear all the time like studs, to earrings for more formal occasions like hoop earrings or dangly earrings. No matter what you loved one’s personal style is, you can find earrings—diamond or otherwise—in any cut, price, style or weight.
It’s hard not to love diamond rings, but they’re certainly not the only type of jewelry available. A bracelet can be the perfect accompaniment to a wedding ring and can still be a constant reminder of your love for your significant other. Jewelers can help you find everything from a simple bangle to a tennis bracelet, which can be customized with different metal qualities and different carat weights. More often than not, you can find something that’s as budget-friendly as you need it to be.
If you’re looking to get your loved one a gift they’re going to treasure forever, you can’t go wrong with a diamond necklace from one of your local jewelers. Like bracelets and earrings, you can keep it simple, perhaps with a chain and pendant combo or you can create something more lavish, getting assistant from a jeweler to find the perfect combination of cut, carats and metal to create something extra special. If you want to get your loved one a pendant and chain combo, you can make the gift even more meaningful by making the pendant a word or maybe a symbol that has personal significance for them.
Whether you’re shopping for diamond rings, bracelets, earrings or something else entirely, taking the time to find a truly meaningful gift for your loved one will make that gift extra special for whatever the occasion is. They’ll love the fact that you took time to find something meaningful and they’ll be able to cherish it forever.
