If you want to give a special someone a holiday gift that will last a lifetime, then you can’t go wrong with jewelry.

Jewelry designer Twila True told The Zoe Report that the first thing to do is consider the recipient’s personality and lifestyle. She said, “Our team asks about the recipient’s lifestyle, including employment, leisure activities, and style before we show any jewelry. Think [about it like] a mood board. The perfect jewelry item isn’t perfect for everyone. It’s all about the right fit.”

True also recommends shopping to think about what the recipient is missing in their jewelry collection. If you want “investment pieces,” then contemplate diamond stud earrings, a tennis bracelet and gemstone rings. “Diamonds match every outfit and are remarkably durable,” True explained. In terms of gemstones, she said the three colored stones that are eternally popular are rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

The Zoe Report added, “For more budget-friendly selections, lean into pastimes like astrology (zodiac necklace, anyone?), semi-precious stones, beloved shapes like gold hoops, and current trends to appease even the chicest person on your shopping list.”

Whether you prefer something more dainty or bold, we’ve listed a few options to consider when you go holiday shopping.

Personalized necklaces
