Choosing a jewelry gift for your partner, made simple.
Buying a jewelry gift for your SO can be a stressful and slightly daunting task. We get it. After all, it’s a reminder of the love and commitment you have to each other, and you want to mark the occasion with something special. With so many options out there, you may not know where to begin. Not to worry, follow this guide and you’ll find a foolproof gift in no time.
1. Know Your Partner’s Preferences
First thing’s first. When it comes to a jewelry gift, you should always pay attention to your partner’s particular taste and style. Take notice of what she wears daily. Does she like to glam it up for special occasions? Or does she prefer to keep it straight up classic? These elegant diamond earring options can help you decide.
There are many categories of jewelry to choose from. Some good options include earrings, bracelets and necklaces. If your partner’s ears are pierced, go for earrings. If not, then opt for a timeless bracelet or necklace instead. Sometimes it’s good to keep it simple with an all-occasion tennis bracelet or a pair of white gold earrings.
In general, purchasing your jewelry gift from a reliable brand whose quality you can vouch for is always better, even if it means spending a few bucks more. Remember, good quality doesn’t necessarily mean that you should be spending more! At James Allen, every piece has been carefully inspected by our team of expert gemologists and comes with a lifetime guarantee. So why not get your hands on a pair of beautiful earrings that we cover for life?
White Gold Freshwater Pearl & Diamond Drop Earrings
A special occasion calls for a special jewelry gift, agreed? It helps engrain those treasured moments in your memory forever. Whether it’s an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, there’s something for every occasion. Surprise your partner on your next anniversary with an anniversary ring to celebrate another year of love and joy.
Sometimes, you may find that the perfect jewelry gift lies in the little details. Think about engraving a note or your partner’s initials on a beautiful pavé ring. Not only will it make your gift that much more sentimental, but it will also show that you chose the piece especially for her.
What’s better than a pearly glow? A pearly glow combined with diamond sparkle! Bonus: if a diamond is your April birthstone, diamond and pearl jewelry is a super cute June birthday gift for your partner or best friend.
Emerald, the May birthstone, is one of the rarest gemstones out there. Literally meaning “green” in Greek (kind of like an orange being called an orange), emeralds vary from light to intense hues. The better the emerald gemstone’s cut, the richer its color.
Cleopatra famously obsessed over emeralds – she laid claim over every single emerald mine in Egypt while she was queen. Though they’ve refrained from buying any mines, celebrities like Beyoncé (a.k.a. Queen B), Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie have also rocked emeralds in their red carpet jewelry.
EMERALD ENGAGEMENT RINGS: SYMBOLS OF LOVE
The May birthstone is the perfect green light to “Will you marry me?” Choose a ring with emerald side stones or a vibrant center.
Of course, we need to begin with the Throne itself. If there’s anything more coveted than ruling the Seven Kingdoms, it’s this dramatic necklace. And to be honest, we’d take these 16 round and baguette cut diamonds over 1,000 daggers – but you know, to each their own.
“The Rains of Castamere” pulled off one of the most impressive and terrifying twists on TV with the Red Wedding. For a slightly happier ending, might we suggest this red wedding ring instead? This way, you can tie the knot with vintage glory and none of the gory.
Throwing it back to the very beginning of the series, these snowstorm earrings embrace the House of Stark’s strength and connection to nature. They’re a meaningful gift for someone with Winterfell-worthy loyalty.
White Walkers’ icy blue eyes are haunting in all the ways. Still, there’s undoubtedly something magical about them. This ring echos the mysterious, legendary power of the creatures from the far north without threatening the destruction of all seven kingdoms.
Joffrey may have been a poisonous sociopath, but at least he was a poisonous sociopath with style. Now that we think about it, you may be more worthy of the golden crown than Cersei’s son. Why not give it a try?
Sometimes the best wedding gifts are the ones you didn’t think to put on your registry, like Daenerys’ three dragon eggs. Snap up this necklace with diamonds and red, yellow, and orange gemstones for a look that’s similarly born from the fire.
This ring’s black bark detailing has us missing the legendary warrior Drogo, a feeling Daenerys knows well. Emulate the boldness of the Great Khal – both in battle and in love – with this unique wedding ring.
The ability to choose your face at all times: creepy or convenient? In the case of this reversible ring, we’d say more convenient. Choose whether you’re feeling diamonds or sapphires on any given day, with a Perfect Fit to hold the stones in front.
It’s been a while, but we’ll never forget the way Drogo called Daenerys “Yer Jalan Atthirari Anni” (“Moon of My Life” in Dothraki). Make a grand romantic statement by gifting this ring to someone who is your entire world.
Although arrows don’t make as dangerous a weapon as dragons, this bracelet is just as killer. In rose gold, this one’s a tribute to Ygritte and her red hair. It’s a piece that proves, once and for all: you know nothing, Jon Glow (too soon?).

Though its most common shade is an intense red, garnets range from transparent to opaque and all across the color spectrum. Red garnet is striking when set in white gold and platinum and has a softer beauty when set in warmer metals. Read on for garnet symbolism and gorgeous January birthstone jewelry gifts!
This oval cut garnet ring is flanked by studded pavé diamonds. We’d choose this one as an alternative engagement ring because of its powerful symbolism – the garnet birthstone is believed to revitalize, purify, and bring serenity to the wearer.
Rose gold throws it back to Late Antique Rome, when both bronze hues and garnet jewelry were extremely popular. Plenty of other civilizations did as the Romans did: the January birthstone was adorned by ancient Egyptian pharaohs and medieval nobility alike.
“Garnet” likely comes from the same root as “pomegranate,” mirroring the small, seed-like red gems that line this ring. Bonus: whether for a stackable ring or a wedding band, the Perfect Fit grooves on the sides make sure that your January birthstones stay front and center.
The January birthstone symbolizes loving, lasting friendship – and like all of us, this gemstone is made even brighter by those that surround it! The garnet and its wearer make a sweet tag team; tradition holds that those who wear a garnet and act kindly will receive kindness in return.
OMGarnet, this pendant as an anniversary gift would be a dream. If it’s your second wedding anniversary, you’re in luck – the garnet is the go-to jewelry gemstone for year two gifts, and this smoky, cushion-cut rhodolite is sure not to disappoint!
The east-west horizontal setting of this pendant is perfect for the January birthstone. In fact, the garnet’s claim to fame stretches across America from East Coast (as the state gemstone of New York and the state mineral of Connecticut) to the West Coast (as the state gemstone of Idaho).
Basic studs get a bright, vivid upgrade with these round cut January birthstone earrings. Simplicity is key, and we especially love this garnet earring basket setting in yellow gold for all-around warmth.
This gemstone trio lights fire with fire! Combined with round cut fire opal and citrine, these marquise cut garnet drop earrings add a flaming hot touch to any look. Though the colors are bold, these earrings’ silhouette makes them completely refined.
Friends, romantics, customers; lend us your ears! 👂
As the first points of sparkle a person sees when they look at you, you’ll want to make sure your lobes are suitably lustrous. And there are no more elegant ear accessories than diamond studs, which make for a dazzling first impression.
Thanks to their ear-hugging design, these earrings appear to float on the earlobe as if weightless in space. Whether you opt for the classic basket or super-trendy martini style setting, you’re bound to be flushed with finesse.
Stud-y up on diamond stud earrings with our essential guide.
Diamond studs come in a choice of fab settings including pavé, martini, and basket, each offering varying degrees of comfort and style, as well as durability. To help you decide between them, let’s take a closer look at two of the more popular setting styles.
BASK IN A BASKET SETTING 🧺
Traditional four or six-prong basket settings afford a reasonably good fit. In these diamond studs, the diamond is set low in the frame, so it sits flat against the earlobe.
Well, well, well. Bezel-set diamond studs are sleek, clean, and oh-so-sturdy. They really are the perfect choice for wearers that lead active lifestyles: the bezel setting won’t snag on any fabric, and it’s arguably the most secure setting. Plus, it’s cute AF.
Gorgeous, elegant, and unique – pear-shaped diamonds are taking over the jewelry scene. These shining droplets stand out from the crowd of more common diamond shapes, especially when poised perfectly on your lobes.
The trendiest diamond shape of the past few years is also one of the most flattering shapes for diamond stud earrings. Its curved edges and elongated form compliment every face shape and every wardrobe.
The emerald cut is an in-your-face shape that shows off your diamond’s crystal clarity. It’s one of the earliest established diamond cuts. As such, these emerald-cut diamond studs boast an undeniable royal feel: bold, elegant, and confident.
MARTINI SETTINGS: SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED 🍸
Named for their conical shape, which resembles a martini glass, martini settings are very in right now due to their super-flush fit. Their narrow bottom means that the diamond can be set even closer to the earlobe than standard basket-style settings. Not only do you get a well-balanced and comfortable fit, but the low profile reveals less metal and more diamond.
The prong setting is a total classic. And the double prongs on these slices of bling add an understated pop of flair to a traditionally beloved setting. The minimalist prongs allow light to hit your diamond’s facets from nearly every angle.
Diamond bracelets are a total wardrobe staple, a holiday gift that’s easy to love and impossible to forget. Trying to find the bracelet that matches your style and price point? We’re here to break it down for you! Presenting: your guide to diamond bracelets.
Tennis Bracelets? Love. This versatile style works wonders whether paired with a ballgown or jeans and a t-shirt. While traditional tennis bracelet feature round-cut diamonds all around, fun variations include gemstones, unique diamond shapes, and decorated clasps.
Chain bracelets include more affordable and delicate designs. Their diamond accents add a touch of subtle sparkle – a beautiful way to wear your art on your sleeve. Many chain bracelets also have adjustable clasps, making them a good option for small wrists.

Diamond Disc Bracelet
Diamond Bracelets: Bangles
The rigidity of diamond bangles allows for elegant and dramatic shapes, proof that a little structure can make creativity shine. Choose a simple bangle to keep it classic or try a more daring statement piece. For the best of both worlds: stack multiple diamond bangles (a look that’s totally on-trend).

Hey, water you waiting for? Aquamarine jewelry, that’s what! Learn more about the meaning behind the March birthstone and find the perfect aquamarine gift for a March birthday.
Aquamarine, the March birthstone, evokes the clarity and serenity of ocean waters – literally. Its name comes from the Latin “aqua marinus,” which means “water of the sea.” Aquamarine is a blue variant of the beryl family, which includes other distinctly-colored gemstones like pink morganite, golden heliodor, and green emerald. Why the spectrum of hues? Each color variation is thanks to specific trace mineral and metal content; in the case of aquamarine, iron ions (Fe2+ and Fe3+, to be precise) tint the otherwise colorless beryl to a clear, watery blue. Its color ranges across the blue spectrum, from pale to deep azure. What’s consistent, however, is this gemstone’s exceptional clarity.
The March Birthstone
What better way to celebrate the first month of spring than with a slice of clear blue sky? Aquamarine jewelry symbolizes tranquility, serenity, and good luck. Ancient Greek sailors used to carry aquamarine aboard their ships to ensure smooth journeys at sea – and protect them against drowning. Nowadays, it’s still a symbol of protection, with many people carrying it with them for good health. They’re perfect for those days when you need to shout, “SERENITY NOW!” That’s because the March birthstone has historically been worn in order to sooth the wearer’s temper and to nurture love.
Aquamarine naturally occurs in hexagonal facets, which catch a spectacular amount of light. Its blue is exceptionally bright. Plus, it’s a 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale, making it a strong, durable jewel that stands up well to daily wear. So whether or not you’re a March baby, the aquamarine is a stunning gemstone that deserves to be a centerpiece of any jewelry collection.
And don’t forget about the celebrity endorsements. Celebs have been rocking aquamarine jewelry since – forever! Lucille Ball flaunted a 40-carat multi-faceted aquamarine ring from Desi Arnaz. Jessica Biel’s now-husband Justin Timberlake proposed with a whopping 6-carat center diamond accented with two aquamarine side stones. And princess Diana was an ardent fan of the March birthstone. She had a jaw-dropping collection of aquamarine jewelry, whose standouts included pear-cut aquamarine earrings, a huge emerald-cut aquamarine ring, and a pearl and aquamarine bracelet.
Aquamarine is a beautiful accent stone, but it deserves to take center stage in its own right. At James Allen, we believe people don’t wear aquamarine enough! Its “pale blue” hue, despite its name, is anything but lackluster. It’s radiant! Aquamarine’s distinct color, combined with its characteristic light-grabbing hexagonal faces, means that this bright and vibrant jewel is perfectly suited to be worn as a center stone.
So here are just a few of our most eye-catching, aquamarine-forward pieces. Happy March!
Hello, hydration! These aquamarine gemstone gifts pack gorgeous, translucent bursts of energy.
Infinity Aquamarine Birthstone Ring
This simple aquamarine ring makes for an exceptionally sweet gift for your favorite March birthday. It leans into the marine theme with a rippling white gold band. Can you even look at this birthstone ring without dreaming of ocean surf crashing on a white sand beach? No, no you can’t.
There’s a reason that the simple pleasures in life are enjoyed more often. And this simple pleasure comes in yellow gold! This is a piece that’s classic enough to match with any of your existing rings, perfect for stacking, and will handle anything your life throws at it. The double-floored basket allows light to hit this 0.25-carat round-cut aquamarine center stone from every angle: top, side, and bottom. Meaning, this delicate gemstone will positively glow on your finger.
Aquamarine and sapphire; two classic and beloved azure jewels. It’s a successful mix of new and traditional jewelry styles. The modern look of the opposing shapes and shades of the two stones is offset by the vintage feel of the yellow gold solitaire band. These true blues make the perfect power couple in this double-or-nothing yellow gold ring. Both gemstones are of exceptionally clear grades, so you won’t lack for sparkle.
East-West Aquamarine & Diamond Accent Ring
This ring is the definition of understated glitter. An elegant oval-cut aquamarine is set in the sideways “east-west” position, which though less common than a vertical setting, is not at all less lovely. Two tiny diamonds, nestled in the crooks of the split shank, beautifully set off the brilliance of the center aquamarine.
Get dripping in these aquamarine earrings surrounded with diamond halos, reminiscent of springtime raindrops. Each earring is made up of three stones, surrounded in diamond halos, that gradually increase in size. These sparkling droplets are so sleek, you’ll take to them like a duck to water.
These earrings bring out the sparkle in any eye, especially baby blues and gorgeous greens. The gentle blue of the gemstones perfectly complements cool-toned eyes. Wear aquamarine on your lobes whenever you want to bring out the marine undertones of your irises.
This necklace is all aquamarine. Simply set in white gold, this oval-cut gemstone is the star of the show. And simply put, aquamarine jewelry makes for an unforgettable March birthday gift. This pendant’s split bail ensures that its center stone lies flat around the wearer’s neck. Pretty and stable, this necklace is utterly wearable.
Why be shy about it? Your aquamarine is stunning and you know it. This necklace shows off aquamarine as it deserves to be seen – front-and-center and surrounded by a floating halo of diamonds! This is a pendant necklace that’s covered in sparkle. And it’s not afraid to flaunt it.
And let’s pair that floating halo necklace with a matching stunner – a floating halo ring worthy of a diva! This super-glam ring is a piece that owns the room. It’s an ice-breaking piece of ice that’s a definite conversation starter. But this ring doesn’t have to stand alone. Feel free to pair it with any number of smaller and simpler rings, like a yellow gold aquamarine ring or a two-toned solitaire ring.
