The Top 10 Reasons for Gifting Jewelry

What is more exciting than gifting jewelry—especially when it’s a surprise. And a beautifully wrapped gift is even more exciting to receive. Just the idea of being thought of brings us joy.

Jewelry has remained a most thoughtful gift since the beginning of time since women and men have enjoyed expressing themselves with personal jewels. Since these precious items can be costly, they’ve become a symbol of expressing how important the recipient is to you.

But why else does jewelry make such a great gift? Let us explore the top 10 reasons for gifting jewelry.

1. Jewelry is not usually a self-purchase item.

Many people routinely treat themselves to something special, like new shoes, clothing, bags, and coats every now and then. However, some things are not on most people’s radar, because it’s considered a luxury.

Jewelry fits this pricey category. So others usually give you these special items from time to time. Since this doesn’t happen every day it’s all the more unique.

2. Jewelry is a wearable gift that is also sentimental.

Practically anything can be given as a gift. Yet we know that some gifts create more sentimental value than others. Wearable items like clothing make thoughtful gifts, yet they lack permanence.

But jewelry can be extremely sentimental. Jewelry can even represent milestones like engagements, weddings, births, and anniversaries. Jewelry’s expense and effort makes recipients happy with such a purchase.

3. Jewelry can be timeless.

Considering gifts you’ve received over the years; few are still in use. Clothing becomes worn and goes out of style. Electronics are replaced with newer versions. And cars diminish their value as soon as they are driven off the lot.

But jewelry is cherished more over time and can be treasured for generations. The endless jewelry styles ensure your piece will stay irrelevant, plus its settings can always be revised if desired.

4. Jewelry is a gift now, and an heirloom later.

Some gifts are enjoyed for a short time until you tire of it, or it has served its purpose, Jewelry however, defies trends and can be enjoyed for decades. When not being worn it is easily stored due to its small size. Generations from now, your loved ones will still treasure it.

Depending on the piece it may retain or increase in value over time.

5. Jewelry can appreciate over time and thus double as an investment.

Most gifts are not bought for their appreciation potential. Gifts are generally about the “now,” which is perfectly fine. However, jewelry gifts are enjoyed now and in the future, with the possibility of becoming more valuable over time.

Not every piece of jewelry purchased will increase in value over time. However, some diamonds will actually appreciate over time. It isn't as simple as 1, 2, 3 to sell later on. But there is potential to actually make money on a diamond investment later on. 

6. Jewelry is appropriate for all age groups.

One of the challenges of gift shopping is finding something suitable for each age group. Jewelry has something for every age, from newborns to seniors.

Consider diamond studs or bracelets for the youngest recipient. A pendant necklace for the teenagers, and a wide array of options for young and middle-aged adults are a good idea.  Large statement rings are ideal for the golden years. When you gift jewelry, you cover all ages with one gift idea, and possibly at just one store.

7. Jewelry can be gifted on any occasion.

Jewelry gifts are appropriate for many occasions, some more than others. For example perfume makes a nice birthday gift, or anniversary present, but it is less suitable as a graduation gift. Jewelry, however, can be given for either of these occasions.

Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, engagements, births, Christmas gifts, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteen parties, job promotions, and thank you gifts are all worthy of celebrating with jewelry. Necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, and even cufflinks and watches are wonderful choices that recipients will appreciate.

8. Jewelry can be personalized.

Most jewelry gifts already have a certain amount of sentiment associated with them, yet jewelry can be further personalized via inscribed initials, names, and messages. Personalized jewelry is always a huge hit.

9. Jewelry can suit any personality.

When searching for gifts, it can be tricky knowing whether or not it would suit a personality. Some gifts are right for some personalities but not for others. Jewelry can fit any personality, from quiet types to extroverts. With colored diamonds, one could select a color that the recipient will truly adore.

10. Jewelry is appropriate for all body types and skin tones.

Another reason why gifting jewelry fits everyone. While some items have certain body types or skin tones in mind, jewelry transcends that. Jewels look wonderful on all body types and skin tones, from petite to the fullest body type, from those with light complexion to the deepest skin tones. It’s all about discovering the best look and what you feel comfortable wearing.
