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. 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.

Promising review: "I am picky when it comes to jewelry. I hate when cheap jewelry changes colors, starts fading, or finish rubs off at the smallest bit of wear. These for real look like they cost way more. I have seen identical gold hoops for five times times more than the cost of these. I actually first discovered these through several Instagram influencers and was shocked they were so cheap haha I immediately bought them in gold and silver. I honestly would still buy them if the price was double what they cost." —Chloe

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.

Promising review: "I have three Daniel Wellington watches and love them all! This one in particular is extremely elegant. The gold is a really subtle rose gold, which I like. I was worried it might be too far towards rose gold, but it is really lovely. I've had my other watches from DW for about three years and they have held up perfectly; still look really beautiful. This one in particular makes any outfit look instantly nicer. I'd highly recommend buying this watch if you want something simple, beautiful, elegant, and sharp." —Neil Mejia
