Christmas List Ideas for Her: Classic Jewelry Gifts for Women

Here it comes!  All year the Season builds up until the floodgates of love and gratitude burst open for your Holiday with the people you care about.  Maybe you plan your holiday gift guide for her months in advance, or perhaps you like the thrill of last minute Christmas gifts for her.  If you want to truly mark this moment and make it shine with the dazzling light of the Holiday, how better than the gift of a thoughtful piece of classic jewelry for her?  Nothing stops a clock like opening a jewelry box gift during the Christmastide.

Do your homework first: Know her Style and What is Meaningful

Jewelry has meaning.  Women think a lot about what they wear.  It’s a personal statement of what they show to the world.  So, to find classic jewelry gifts for women, start the gift process with what matters to who will receive the present.  What’s her personal style?  Understand what she likes so your gift lands with a profound feeling that you care, and that you considered what counts.  Take notice.  Does she like delicate and understated jewelry, or does she like bigger, bolder statement-making designs?  What are the favorite items you see her wear?  Are they bracelets, or necklaces, or rings, or combinations of these?  Do your spy work. Do you see her favor a single piece or does she like layering multiple pieces?  If there are multiple pieces, what do these have in common, the metal color, or stone color, the design, loose or close fitting?  Does she like silver, or gold, or rose gold, or does she blend different metals?  Pearl gift ideas for her?  By observing her style in action, you can narrow down your options and choose a piece that matters because it matches to her. 

Next, what is the Gift Statement you want to Make?  

What is your statement in making a gift of jewelry?  Is this a romantic gesture for your partner, or the first hint of a feeling that has been developing?  Are these jewelry gift ideas for wife, or jewelry gift ideas for girlfriend?  Is this for a buddy, or maybe a deserved signal of appreciation for someone who is always there for you? The occasion influences the type of jewelry you choose. To celebrate someone close but not romantic, think about a stylish bracelet or a pair of earrings. More casual pieces may make your best statement.  A ring has the biggest meaning value, but the statement can be both romantic or fun.  Symbols of hearts are constant favorite in ring designs or as pendants.  For romance or showing deep appreciation, consider a more delicate piece, maybe a single pearl pendant necklace that symbolizes perfect purity.  Other pearl gift ideas for her include classic strands, elegant mother-of pearl pendants, bracelets, and even rings. You can’t beat the pedigree of pearl gift ideas for her.  It is pure Audrey Hepburn. At the top of everyone’s gem list is the diamond that sparkles in winter light and makes a knockout impression at Christmas.  

Go with Quality and Craftsmanship

It is one thing for a piece of classic jewelry to SAY something, but it is another to BE something.  Quality matters.  Consider the metal, the gemstones, and the craftsmanship.  With gold you want 14 or 18 carats. Don’t settle for filled gold that can gut the statement you are trying to make. 14 and 18 carats signifies metal blend alloys with a high percentage of real gold.  14 carat is 58.3% gold and 18 carat is 75% gold.  You can go higher to 22 or 24 carats but gold is a soft metal so you will lose wearability and durability.  For silver you want 925 sterling silver.  That’s 92.5% silver.  The number matters!  Look for “925” actually written on the jewelry.  If the jewelry just says “sterling silver” it may be a weaker blend of silver in the alloy.  For gemstones we prefer lab grown gems because we know exactly where they come from. Lab grown are not politically or ecologically conflicted.  You know exactly when and where they were made. They are not from a torn-up mine in a far country with unsteady labor practices.  We visited the labs we source from.  They use wind power to produce lab diamonds!  Lab grown diamonds are structurally and optically identical to mined diamonds.  Identical sparkle and real gem quality.  Any jewelry will confirm this.  But right now, the price of a lab grown diamond is less than half of a mined stone!  So, you can go big with lab grown with zero sacrifice of buying the real thing.
