Should I Get my Girlfriend a Necklace or Bracelet?

When it comes to finding the perfect gift for your girlfriend, the options can be a bit overwhelming.  You might consider a bracelet or necklace as a great option to give your girlfriend a lasting reminder that you care about her. 

But how do you pick which one's best? There are a few ways you can decide whether or not a bracelet or a necklace will be the best gift for your significant other. Keep reading for some ideas on the best way to say "I love you" with a gift of fine jewelry.


What is the Best Jewelry to Get my Girlfriend, a Necklace or Bracelet?

The best jewelry for your girlfriend should fit in with her individual style and needs. When in doubt, consult her best friend!

Most men think a necklace is better than a bracelet because they tend to stand out more. The large pendants on a necklace can make a bracelet seem humble in comparison. However, you should always remember, jewelry is unique to the wearer, and minimalist jewelry is in style!

Bracelets are lightweight and make perfect accessories for every kind of outfit. From a casual long-sleeved shirt or a stunning strapless dress, a bracelet can elevate your girlfriend's outfit effortlessly.

If you're wondering how to choose a bracelet or necklace for your girlfriend, keep her style in mind. You can also consider what she already has in her jewelry box. If your partner already has several necklaces, she might not need another one. Or make sure it's a different length, so she can layer an existing necklace with her new one! Similarly, determine the types of bracelets she already wears. Multiple chain bracelets tend to tangle, so pair a chain bracelet with a bangle bracelet. Make sure to consider her daily routine to determine the flashiness of the piece you select.  

Create a Charm Necklace or Bracelet

The most special gifts are those with meaning. Pendants and charms come in many shapes and sizes and can carry special meaning. One of our favorite gifts is a chain that can later be filled with various charms. Consider a paperclip chain this time around. Then for your next gift, you can give her a star, a moon, a rainbow, an infinity symbol, or an initial charm that can be easily added to the chain. Paperclip chains with colorful enamel charms make a great gift! It's the new modern charm bracelet! For Valentine's day, consider a heart pendant to add to her gold chain.  

Incorporating Birthstones into your Anniversary Gift

For a thoughtful gift, include birthstones in a piece of jewelry. Birthstones give you the opportunity to customize a piece, so it's exclusive for  your girlfriend. 

You can add birthstones to several different pieces of jewelry, from bracelets to necklaces. They work particularly well in bangles or pendant necklaces. One excellent way to give your girlfriend a gift with birthstones is to have them set in a pendant on a white gold necklace. For example, for may birthstones, our favorite gift is our natural emerald tennis bracelet. For July birthstones, our favorite bracelet is a ruby tennis bracelet.

Birthstones are also fantastic for long-term relationships. If you have children, you can use birthstones to symbolize everyone in your family on a unique bracelet. As your family grows, you can continue to add birthstones.

While a rose gold necklace with diamonds will surely turn heads, even cost-effective gemstones are eye-catching and make a statement. A guide to birthstone bracelets.

How a Jewelry Gift Says, "I love you."

Jewelry is a timeless gift that's always in style. The best part is that each piece of jewelry can be as unique as the person who wears it. That means it's one of the best ways to tell your significant other that you love them. When a person wears a piece of jewelry bought by someone they love, they think of that person every time they see it. Jewelry is a great gift for a loved one.

A bangle or a simple choker are both minimalist pieces that have gained a lot of popularity recently. The best part about jewelry is that it doesn't have to be flashy. Whether it's an elaborate piece of fine jewelry or a simple sterling silver necklace, your girlfriend will love the thought you put into it.

If you think necklaces and bracelets are complicated, stay tuned for our article on engagement rings. Every woman has different preferences for engagement rings. Some women love a solitaire diamond ring while others love an emerald cut. The metal types will also vary from stainless steel to platinum - the options can feel endless.
