The best jewelry to give your girlfriend (or wife, partner or friend) depends upon the message you want to send. This will determine the style and type of jewelry.
The message you'll give to your girlfriend
Giving jewelry to your girlfriend sends a message! Jewelry can say:
- I love you (our future is together)
- We’re barely begun dating (and I think I’m in love)
- I like you (there might be more)
- We’re dating (and that’s all)
- I’m sorry
The higher up the list, the bigger the look and the price should be. If you’ve barely begun dating, then choose a necklace or earrings instead of a ring. If it’s the first jewelry you’ve given to your girlfriend, choose your gift with care - it will probably be cherished forever.
If you are giving jewelry to your girlfriend to say I’m sorry, then the bigger the mistake, the bigger the gift.
Best types of jewelry to get your girlfriend
It's important to remember that rings have meaning, especially diamond rings! They mean “I am committed to you.” A very cool gemstone ring can mean “We may have a future together” but a diamond ring means “We definitely have a future together.” In fact, any diamond ring you give your girlfriend will probably be interpreted as either a promise ring or an engagement ring.
If you’re not ready for that commitment level, then shop for necklaces and earrings. Bracelets are also an excellent choice, although a few women don’t wear bracelets, while nearly all wear necklaces and earrings.
Best jewelry style to give your girlfriend
What’s her style? If she’s a free spirit, choose organic shapes. If she’s careful and methodical, chose balanced designs with straight lines.
Did you take a memorable trip to the coast or is she a beach girl? Consider pearl jewelry or sea life styles (shells, dolphins, etc.). Get a blue or green gemstone jewelry to match her eyes.
Sometimes it can be hard to know. We have a lot of experience and will be happy to help you!

While this provides general information, it helps to get guidance. Does she have a Pinterest account? A good friend or sister? A favorite jewelry store?
If she's been to Fox Fine Jewelry, we keep a “Wish List” of her favorite items.
When you visit us, we'll ask questions about her. You can show us a photo of her so we know her skin tone, hair, and clothing style, the shape of her face and length of her neck. Then we'll help you select the perfect jewelry gift for your girlfriend!
