Jewelry Gifts for Her in Her 20s—Jewelry is a girl’s best friend, at least one of her best friends anyway. When a girl receives a piece of jewelry, whether it is a pair of earrings, a bracelet or a necklace, it will mean something to her. Strangely, even when you give her another gift with the same or greater monetary value (let’s say a smart phone), the effect is just not quite the same. Jewelry has the power to get to her heart like an arrow.

With that understand, perhaps you are ready to venture into giving jewelry gifts this Christmas? One caveat though, unless you are seriously committing to the relationship, I would suggest avoiding a ring of any sort right now.

Generally speaking, if your girlfriend is in her 20s, her jewelry taste could be classic, young, fun or bold. It’s not to say that women in their 30s or beyond wouldn’t like the same jewelry—the delineation is not black and white. Especially classic jewelry like diamond earrings, women of all ages would welcome that addition to collection.

Let me share with you my favorites!

Diamond Earrings

Women start to (or at least want to) collect good, timeless jewelry that will last a lifetime. A pair of classic diamond earrings is usually the starting point. She can wear them any time with any outfit—from swimsuit to evening gown. True, it can be quite expensive. But there is some wiggle room—with a pair of tiny diamond earrings, you can pay as little as $90. And of course you can go up from there.

If you opt for something less extravagant, and your girl has a classy taste, then this Breil Milano Duplicity Elements White Natural Pearl Crystals Necklace could be your choice. It has a cute pearl in a crystal pavé setting with polished stainless steel. Also, pearl is the birthstone of June, which gives you another reason if her birthday is in June. Regardless, this necklace is an elegant and beautiful choice.
