Guide to Classic Diamond Jewelry

March 02, 2017 3 min read

They always seems to sneak up. No matter how hard you try to prepare. It’s like you always need just a few more days to prepare...

But if you have a birthday, anniversary, or holiday coming up:

The one thing that shouldn’t be a complicated ordeal is picking out a gift that your spouse will love.

With that in mind, I’ve created a quick jewelry shopping guide for you:

The Fail-Proof,Guaranteed-To-Be-A-Hit, CLASSIC Gifts

The first thing you’re going to notice about the items on this list... They’re all diamond jewelry. And there’s a good reason for that. I’ve been in the jewelry business for over 30 years and, in all my experience, diamond jewelry has been, and is still, first-choice for most women.

“Diamonds are a girls best friend” is more than just a catchy saying. 

It’s the truth.

There are a few exceptions to this rule (which I’ll go over), but there are 3 items I’ll talk about here that are absolutely guaranteed to be a hit for any gift-giving occasion.

These are the ultimate staple piece for any woman’s collection.

Here they are:

A Pair of Diamond Stud Earrings

Most fashion experts consider these anecessity for a woman to have in her jewelry box. Why? Well, it’s because there’s nothing a good pair of diamond studs can’t be worn with.

Guys, if she doesn’t have a good pair of simple, diamond studs --- meaning 1/2 carat each, 1 carat “total weight”, or larger --- than this would make a perfect gift. And the best part is, for you as the “shopper”... There is no “shopping”! 

There is no complicated choice about what style she will like. They’re diamonds that go in her earlobes.

It doesn’t get any easier than that.

But she will LOVE them as if you put long, hard thought into it.

A Diamond Tennis Bracelet 

This is among the most popular items in jewelry. On TV, or in the movies, if a guy is giving a girl jewelry (other than an engagement ring), it’s usually a white gold diamond tennis bracelet. This is today, and has been for a long time, one of the clearest, most powerful “I Love You” gifts in the world of jewelry...

Maybe it’s because of the way the slender box opens, perfectly displaying a stunning, symmetrical line of sparkling diamonds... Or maybe it’s the satisfying weight of the bracelet as it hugs her wrist... Or maybe it’s the looks she gets from people two tables away at a restaurant, who can see the fire exploding from the many, many diamonds that you gave her...

Whatever it is, next to her engagement ring and wedding band, this will likely be the gift she cherishes most, for a long time to come.

A Diamond Pendant

“She has literally worn it every day since I got it for her... And I catch her looking at it in the sunlight.”

This is a pretty common story for a guy who gives the woman he loves this gift. The diamond solitaire pendant is a lot like the gift of diamond studs.

It can be worn everyday, and it can be worn with just about anything. It can be worn to work, around the house, or out to a romantic dinner.

And if you want to go for Gift-Of-The-Year --- We’re talking about the tears-of-joy, “No way! You didn’t...” type reaction --- Give her the matching set; A diamond solitaire pendant together with a pair of diamond studs.

Diamond Jewelry That’s Not So Straight Forward...

Heart-shaped jewelry, for example. That can be a tricky one.

Hearts symbolize love. Jewelry symbolizes love.

Heart-shaped jewelry should be a winner... Right?

The answer is... It depends totally on her tastes and preferences.

Some women think heart-shaped jewelry is corny. Like it’s something you’d give a girlfriend when you were in junior high school. On the other hand, if she’s more of the “hopeless romantic” type, heart-shaped jewelry could be the best gift you ever bought her.

On important gift giving occasions, if you’re not sure if a certain style is right for her, it may be smart to stick with the proven classics that never miss.

Or, if you’ve bought jewelry from us in the past, we can give you a customized selection of options and ideas based on what she already has in her collection.
