Fine jewelry is beautiful, thoughtful, and timeless, making it an excellent anniversary gift. But which piece should you give her to commemorate your first anniversary?
Finding the right jewelry gift for your partner can be tricky, since the perfect piece for her will vary depending on her style. To help you find a winning design, our experts at JustDesi are sharing three essential tips for picking out a fine jewelry gift, then highlighting eight of the best fine pieces to give as a gift.
Whether you’re celebrating your first year of marriage or your first anniversary with your girlfriend, this anniversary gift guide will help you pick out a piece that will sweep her off her feet.
How to Choose a Jewelry Gift for Your Anniversary
If you’re not sure what type of jewelry she likes, JustDesi recommends looking at the jewelry she currently wears and answering three questions. Once you know the answers to these questions, it will be much easier to find a piece she’ll love.
- What type of jewelry does she usually wear?
First, consider what type of jewelry she usually wears. If she evenly wears earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, you can pick out a gift from any category. However, if she tends to only wear one or two types of jewelry, you want to make sure you get her that type of jewelry. For example, if she only solely wears earrings and necklaces, it’s a safer bet to give her a necklace or a pair of earrings.
- What style of jewelry does she usually wear?
Next, consider if the jewelry she wears leans more simple or more bold. If she only wears very streamlined pieces, you want to pick out something similarly sleek. If she likes to wear jewelry that’s large, sparkly, colorful, or highly detailed, keep that in mind when choosing her gift.
- What metal color does she usually wear?
Lastly, determine whether or not she has a favorite precious metal. Is her jewelry all yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or platinum? If she only wears one metal color, stick to it for her gift. If you’re unfamiliar with precious metal colors, know that yellow gold is gold, rose gold is pinkish gold, and white gold and platinum are both silver.
First Year Anniversary Gift Ideas
Everyday Diamond Stud Earrings
Diamond stud earrings are an excellent choice for a first anniversary gift. They’re classic, beautiful, and so easy to wear, so your love can enjoy styling them day after day.
For a chic and minimalist take on diamond studs, choose our Mini Baguette Diamond Studs. If you’re searching for a more glamorous option that’s still great for everyday wear, we recommend our Flower Cluster Studs.
Diamond Pendant Necklace
Pendant necklaces are versatile, timeless, and easy to personalize, making them an eternally popular jewelry gift option. If you’re shopping for a woman with a classic or romantic sense of style, our Flower Cluster Pendants are the perfect choice. If you want something more personalized, browse our Feeling Spiritual collection and look for a piece that resonates.
Diamond Tennis Bracelet
If you want to give her something with a “wow factor,” look no further than a diamond tennis bracelet. In addition to being gorgeous, this diamond jewelry classic is timeless. A tennis bracelet is always in style, so she’ll be able to enjoy wearing it for decades to come.
If you’re shopping for your first wedding anniversary, an anniversary band is a perfect fit. An anniversary band is a wedding band given on an anniversary to celebrate your continued commitment and love. It sometimes replaces an existing wedding band, but more often is worn alongside the recipient’s wedding band and engagement ring.
The most popular ring style for this anniversary gift idea is a diamond eternity band, but you can choose any stackable diamond ring that suits her style. For a romantic take on the anniversary ring, we love our Offset Diamond Stackable Band.
Diamond Hoop Earrings
A pair of diamond hoops is the perfect gift for a woman who stays up on trends. If she loves to stand out from the crowd, choose an oversized style, like the 2 inch pair pictured above. If she has a more understated sense of style, consider huggie hoop earrings.
A statement necklace is ideal if you’re looking for a show stopping first anniversary gift. For an elegant yet eye catching take on the statement necklace, choose our Climbing Y Necklace.
If she loves to layer up on rings, give her a beautiful new piece to add to her daily ring stacks. One of our favorite stackable rings of the moment is our Emerald Diamond Double Band Ring. This style offers plenty of dimension and sparkle, while also having a sleek profile that allows it to sit flush against other rings.
A pearl necklace is a chic gift she can enjoy wearing with casual, work, or upscale attire. For maximum versatility, we suggest choosing a more delicate option, like our Dangling Diamond and Pearl Necklace. This gemstone jewelry design looks lovely when worn alone or in a layered necklace look.
