29 Gorgeous Pieces Of Jewelry That'll Make Perfect Gifts

Unfortunately, I'll be buying half this list for myself.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. Ear climbers for the pal who wants additional piercings but is simply too chicken to go through with it. Their first one happened at the age of one! Claire’s is scary! TL;DR: These climbers will add more to their lobe, no needles required.

2. A letter necklace for the person you’re obligated to give a gift to, but don’t really…know that well?! This Secret Santa option lets you purchase an accessory with their first initial, making it seem like a much more heartfelt "I actually know you well!" present.

3. A cubic zirconia ring that delivers on its promise of 360° shine. Available in neutral *and* vibrant hues alike (helloooooo, fuchsia), this ideal accessory encapsulates holiday spirit because I feel merry just looking at it through a computer screen.

4. Lightweight hoop earrings available in yellow, white, and rose gold as well as in three sizes. Reviewers swear these versatile bebe's look like they could easily cost five times the price — thankfully, they do not. "Oh, you shouldn't have spent so much!" "Haha, I totally didn't!"

5. Birthstone earrings packaged in a gorgeous keepsake box that means *wipes away eyebrow sweat* you won't have to worry about wrapping paper this year. The bane of my personal existence every holiday season, TBQH.

6. A sterling silver knot ring here to really tie the ~knot~ when it comes to getting the compliment of best gift ever. It's perfectly dainty, goes with any style or wardrobe, and reviewers swear it won't leave behind the dreaded green line.

7. A dual-layered necklace they can consider the blazer equivalent for jewelry. Pourquoi? Because they can throw this on and, suddenly, their college sweatshirt paired with trousers looks unintentionally-but-actually-intentionally very polished. Dare I say, a TikTok chic ensemble is now theirs.

8. A dainty necklace that is the perfect in-between. This basic hunk of beauty is *just* the stuff when they want to zhuzh up a plain black dress but don’t want to wear anything too statementy.

9. Gold-plated padlock dangles about to ~lock~ in the title of their new favorite earrings. They're dainty enough that they go with everything in any closet *but* are a bit more daring than the average studs.

10. A pair of pearl drop earrings they'll likely wear to every RSVP-requiring occasion henceforth. A clutch + these earrings = their new wedding uniform.

11. A layered choker necklace so delicate and dainty, it truly looks like it would cost upwards of 1 million dollars. Surprise! It actually costs less than $10, meaning you can knock off everyone on your gift list for a super-reasonable sum.

12. A Jet Set Candy accessory so they can travel the globe — sort of. This brand uses quality sterling silver, 14-karat vermeil, or solid gold to create destination-inspired jewelry that will do nothing to quell their wanderlust. Sorry, not sorry.

13. Acrylic geometric hoops available in a leopard print for anyone who was obsessed with the whole ~leopard-print skirt~ trend but prefers to go unnoticed as a basic.

14. A beautifully constructed Daniel Wellington watch — the kind of splurge-worthy accessory that would be passed down through family members for generations to come. When words fail, I'll let an emoji do the talking: 😍.

15. Sterling silver cubic zirconia studs that look like they would run you about a trillion bucks, but no — they actually cost very little and even my humble savings account wouldn't be bothered by the purchase.

16. An initial necklace sure to get them dozens (upon dozens) of compliments whenever they wear it...which would be approximately 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All of the letter necklaces

17. Safety pin earrings sure to get them a bunch of oohs, ahhs, and compliments. They'll feel like a trendsetting fashionista with every wear of these surprisingly dainty accessories.

18. Dainty flower earrings truly worth a Shakespearean novel because I, for one, now officially believe in love at first sight. I never thought I'd have such strong feelings about lobe accessories but here we are. The real dilemma becomes: to gift or not to gift (and keep for myself), that is the question.

19. Stackable rings you can throw in their stocking as is because — gird your loins — it comes in a perfectly presentable gift box that won't require tape, wrapping paper, scissors, or patience.

20. Snake earrings sure to slither their way into your shopping cart due to a fun, trendy design that still feels remarkably...dainty? This gift allows them to decorate their lobes with jewelry that’s reptilian in origin.

21. An amethyst gem ring sure to get them a barrage of compliments and questions, the latter being, "Wherever did you get such an exquisite piece of jewelry??" This stunning statement is about to become part of their daily uniform.

23. A sterling silver ring dubbed the croissant ring, which means that, other than an actual edible flaky croissant, there can be no better gift. 10/10 recommend gifting a wearable pastry.

24. A droolworthy ~The Crowned~ necklace from Awe Inspired, a collection that pays homage to four badass royal highnesses (Catherine the Great, Nefertiti, Queen Esther, and Boudicca). And while the pendants are stunning, so are the chains: You can gift plain *or* options with turquoise, ruby, and more vibrant beads.

25. A layered necklace comprised of mini pearls *and* an 18-karat gold-plated coin, a combo of which is sure to have them develop heart eyes like an old-timey cartoon character.

28. A custom beaded bracelet if they love accessories emblazoned with their name but were never a fan of the gold name tag necklace. "That's not my name," screamed The Ting Tings as they held up their wrist to show off the below.

29. Fringe earring jackets capable of making any 'fit seem fancy. Wrinkled white tees and their favorite faded denim can become instantaneously more chic when paired with the below.
