When you're shopping for a gift of jewelry, there are a few things to look for to ensure you choose the highest-quality materials. You want your gift to reflect beauty, durability, and above all, quality. Here are the keys to recognizing these qualities:
For a beautiful gift of high-quality diamond jewelry, look for:
- D- to I-grade color to avoid color noticeable to the unaided eye
- FL- to SI-grade clarity to avoid inclusions noticeable to the unaided eye
At Karat Square, we follow these quality standards to ensure that even the smallest diamonds in our jewelry have the most beautiful brilliance. Diamond stud earrings are our most popular diamond jewelry, and diamond pendants run a close second, as each of them can be worn anywhere, any time.
An inexpensive, personalized gift. For silver jewelry that will last, choose durable sterling silver. Karat Square offers only sterling silver, so your gift won't wear down to brass like silver plating can. Silver is very affordable, and many of the sterling silver bracelets, key rings, and cuff links at Karat Square can be engraved for a truly personalized gift.
A gift every woman loves. For beautiful gold jewelry, look for 18k gold. It has more beautiful gold color than 14k, but more strength and durability than pure 24k gold. Our gold jewelry is all 18k gold, but may include 14k gold accents, clasps, or posts in instances where strength is essential. Choose a beautiful 18k gold Byzantine necklace and matching bracelet for a gift she'll love to wear - and she'll think of you each time she puts it on.
The can't-go-wrong gift. Choose only the finest jewelry-grade platinum with 95% purity. Our platinum jewelry includes 95% pure platinum, and 5% alloys of metals to increase the metal's beauty and durability. We set all loose diamonds in our engagement settings with the strength and security of platinum prongs. For a gift she'll love, choose stylish platinum hoop earrings or a classic platinum woven necklace.
For the most beautiful pearls, the most important thing to look for is a high to medium luster grade. Luster gives a pearl that deep, reflective look only pearls are known for. Also, for a smooth appearance, choose pearls with a surface grade of flawless to lightly spotted. At Karat Square, you'll find pearl jewelry that upholds these standards. And pearls make the perfect gift. The classic pearl necklace - an Akoya princess-length strand - is an essential for every woman's wardrobe. And for an affordable gift for any occasion, she'll love Freshwater pearl stud earrings.
Earrings make the perfect gift because they are always the right fit. The most basic jewelry wardrobe piece, she may leave the house without a bracelet, but she's almost always wearing earrings.
Most earring styles go with anything, adding style to anything she wears. The wide variety of earring types, sizes, and prices available makes it easy to find the perfect pair for a gift. She'll remember you every time she wears them.
Because they're small, stud earrings are easy to wear. They go as easily with a cocktail dress as they do with jeans. You'll find a variety of styles in Cultured Pearl Earrings, Diamond Earrings and Gemstone Earrings.
Platinum, gold, or silver hoops give a feminine touch, and precious metals go with anything. For added sparkle, choose a pair with diamonds. Prices start at around $33 for silver hoops.
Drop earrings are made to dangle below their setting. Swaying with movement, they can add an elegant touch. Pearl, diamond, and gemstone drop earrings are available in various settings.
Earrings As Gifts
Diamond studs are the perfect gift for an important occasion. If she is more fashionable and follows the trends, give her princess-cut diamond studs, but if she dresses in classic styles, give round diamond studs or cultured pearl studs.
Even if she has several pairs of earrings already, she'll love to add a pair of beautiful hoop earrings to her rotation. Most women have a preference of the color of precious metals they wear, so look at her other jewelry to see what she prefers.
If studs and hoops are too predictable, silver earrings are available in a variety of fashionable styles. Other earring styles include colorful gemstone or lively dangling designs.
The right necklace or pendant will add style to anything she wears. In addition to being a fashionable gift, giving her a necklace gives you the opportunity to perform the classically romantic gesture of putting it around her neck for the first time.
In general, a necklace is defined as any type of chain or length of precious metal or gems. They are also available in pendant styles that feature a single diamond, gemstone, fine metal design, or pearl, usually suspended from a chain. A pearl strand is a length of closely strung pearls.
Chains go with everything. A fine platinum chain in a choker length will add just a touch of shine. Consider giving her an 18-inch, sterling silver or 18k gold chain to add an element of visual interest to her wardrobe.
Necklaces come in an assortment of styles including heavier chains, links, and braids. Some necklaces feature a fixed set of diamonds or gemstones, where others have stones that run their entire length. Pendants feature diamonds, gemstones, or fine metal designs that are suspended from a chain..
Pearl strands are an essential element to a woman's jewelry wardrobe. She can wear one with a dress to create a classy look.
The simple design of a solitaire pendant allows all the attention to focus on a beautiful diamond, pearl, or gemstone. These timeless pieces can be worn with a dress or with jeans. Our Build Your Own Diamond Pendant® feature allows you to select a diamond and setting to create a unique piece of jewelry.
Choose The Right Length
When selecting a necklace or pendant, consider that the length will determine where it will lie on her chest.
16 in. Choker length:
Just above collarbones. Emphasizes her neckline.
18 in. Princess length:
Hangs over collarbones. The most common length.
24 in. Opera length:
Over blouse or dress. A dramatic length.
At Karat Square, we measure the length of the necklace from end to end, including the clasp.
Necklaces & Pendants As Gifts
Many women start out with a strand of faux-pearls, so a strand of freshwater pearls makes a very nice gift for a young woman. If you have a special occasion like a birthday or your first wedding anniversary, consider a solitaire pendant featuring a pearl or diamond. For a very special occasion like a five- or ten-year anniversary, you might give Akoya pearls, which are the most beautiful white pearls available. She'll remember the occasion every time she wears the gift.
If it's a gift for a fun occasion, like a vacation or a promotion, consider a pendant featuring an 18k gold, platinum, or sterling silver design - these are fashion pieces just for fun.
A bracelet is one jewelry item she will see all the time, so she can appreciate it often. She also enjoys the feeling of it on her wrist reminding her of you.
Some bracelets are available in different lengths. So before you purchase, be sure to measure one of her other bracelets to be sure she doesn't need a special length.
Bracelets are usually worn on occasions when she isn't working with her hands. Even when not working, a bracelet's proximity to the hands causes it to get bumped and banged, so it must be very durable. Jewelry designers take this into account, so you can be sure the bracelet you choose will last.
This is the classic bracelet. You'll find a variety of chain designs, like the traditional round-link rolo or wheat chain, in a variety of metals like sterling silver, 18k gold, and platinum.
A pearl bracelet is a traditional piece of jewelry. It adds a dressy touch to anything she wears, from jeans to a cocktail dress. Or she can formalize the look with a matching pearl necklace and earrings.
A bangle bracelet can be worn by itself for a simple look, or can be combined with several other bangles. Bangles draw the eye with metallic shine, and several bangles clinking together make a pleasant sound.
Bracelets As Gifts
For an important occasion like a graduation or a promotion, give her a pearl bracelet. This bracelet is perfectly suited for one of these formal occasions, and looks great with a dress.
For a birthday, give her a bangle, or several bangles to wear all at once. Bangles are fun for summer to dress up whatever she's wearing, or she can wear them in winter over a slim-fitting sweater.
The Perfect Fit (Measuring Your Finger)
Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.
Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather. For best results measure your finger size:
- At the end of the day and when your fingers are warm (Fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold.)
- Measure finger size 3 to 4 times to eliminate an erroneous reading.
Avoid using string or paper to measure ring size as these materials can stretch or twist, yielding an inaccurate measurement.
