The holiday season is going to be here before you know it, and savvy holiday shoppers are already thinking about big gifts before December rolls around. There are plenty of things to get the person you love, but jewelry is the classic romantic holiday gift that both men and women can appreciate. Buying anything to suit somebody else’s style can be difficult, and jewelry is no exception. While finding and buying jewelry online is easy enough, you’ll want to avoid getting anything run-of-the-mill – you don’t want to waste money on something that your loved one won’t even like! If you are really looking to surprise someone this holiday season, here are some tips that will help you get them a gift that they will love.
Observe their style
If you really want to get a feel for what your loved one will like, take a look at the jewelry that they already wear. For instance, if they tend to like simple pieces, don’t get them anything too flashy. If they tend to wear a lot of silver, stick with silver pieces or branch out and get them white gold. If you try to mimic the recipient’s style when shopping, you should be able to find something that’s distinctive, but similar enough to their existing collection that it will go well with their wardrobe.
Avoid rings (unless you’re already married)
Rings are in style right now, but they’re also a significant symbol of commitment in our culture. Even if you explicitly say that you aren’t getting your significant other a promise ring or an engagement ring, other people (and possibly even the person you’re giving it to) may not be convinced. There are plenty of other nice options like necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other pieces that don’t carry such heavy romantic symbolism. Of course, none of this applies if you are just getting a nice ring for your mother.
Think about a symbolic gift
Rings may be out of the question for some couples, but that doesn’t mean that your jewelry gift has to lack symbolism. Gemstones come in a variety of colors and cuts, and some have some significant characteristics that can make the gift more meaningful. Consider getting your loved one jewelry that highlights their birthstone or do a little research on the historical significance of certain gems and minerals. You could give them jewelry made with jade, as it used to be associated with royalty, or choose a lapis lazuli necklace, as this stone was believed to keep your body healthy and your soul at peace.
Ask for help
Are you truly stuck on what to get someone? Since you can’t ask them directly about what they want, do the next best thing: ask their friends or other loved ones for advice. Nobody is going to know this person’s style better than their friends and family. Take these people shopping or send them a few links to gifts you’re thinking about purchasing. Their input can be invaluable, and they could even get a little information from your recipient about what they really want for the holidays.
These are some of the best ways to get someone the perfect jewelry gift. Can you think of any other holiday jewelry buying hacks?

When it comes to the award ceremonies each year, the red carpet is where you will see what is trending in both fashion and jewelry. At this year’s 67th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on September 20th, it was definitely the “statement earring” that ruled the red carpet. There was so much emphasis placed on the earring that a lot of celebrity necklines remained bare, in order to let the earrings steal the show.
One example is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was stunning in a one-shoulder black gown. Not only was Julia a winner in the category of “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series”, but she also brought on the sparkle with her 28.78 carat white and colored diamond earrings by Chopard. They were like wearing an entire solar system of shining stars on your ears.
A similarly stunning look was worn by Sophia Vegara from Modern Family. To accessorize her curve loving, strapless metallic dress, she chose a large spiral pair of champagne diamond earrings, set in platinum, by a popular celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. The spiral shape brought much interest up to her jaw-line and golden color of the diamonds was the perfect accompaniment to her shimmering golden gown.
Aside from the splash of all diamonds, there were also some great gemstone and vintage looking earrings on this year’s Emmy Awards red carpet. Julie Bowen, also a starring actress from the hit comedy show Modern family, had a pair of deep green, organically shaped drop earrings that dangled from a sparkly diamond hoop. These and Julie’s matching ring really infused some color to her fantastic mermaid style gown.
There were also several vintage- looking statement earrings that were worn at the 2015 Emmy red carpet. Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal had on this gorgeous pair of diamond and gold lacy medallion drop earrings that were not overpowering, but still made a statement.
