A Jewelry Gift Guide for Every Relationship Milestone
Relationship milestones are important moments that should be cherished and celebrated. By pairing your milestone with a gift of jewelry, whether traditional or modern, you’re not only creating memories you can look back on, but you’re also investing in future heirloom pieces.
In this article, we’re going to talk about some relationship milestone pieces you might consider gifting that special someone, including diamond jewelry, gold jewelry, and engagement rings.
Looking for an Online Jewelry Store?
For milestones at any relationship stage, find custom-made rings, gold chains and bracelets, morganite rings, eternity bands, and more at David’s House of Diamonds.
A New Relationship (1-6 months)
Those first few months where you’re getting to know one another are pure bliss. The right gift for the early milestone stage will be simple and wearable, an everyday piece that your significant other can dress up or down.
For her, we recommend simple stud earrings or a ring she can pair with her current stack. For him, we love a classic, thin gold chain.
The Commitment Stage (6 Months-1 year)
In the commitment stage, you’re more used to one another and you probably have a good sense of what your significant other likes or dislikes in a piece of jewelry.
If you’re looking for the perfect way to say I love you, a customizable ID ring is a personal and touching choice for her. Or, for the statement-lover, consider a paper clip chain, a fashionable piece that is perfect for layering or wearing on its own. If your statement lover is a he, a Cuban link chain is a stunning and sophisticated piece.
Getting Serious (1-3 years)
The big milestones in this next phase of your relationship might include moving in together, buying a house, getting a pet or graduations, and big birthdays. You can commemorate these moments with a piece of jewelry that has more impact, as a kind of lead-up to the ring and the big question.
For her, diamond halo earring studs or even an initial bangle are the perfect choices for these moments. For him, choose a simple, everyday ring.
When you’re ready to pop the question, choose a ring that reflects your future spouse’s personality and style. If you’re new to buying diamonds, you’ll want to do your research to make sure you understand the basics, like cut, carat, color, and clarity.
Then, decide if you want to design your own piece, choose an existing piece or explore nontraditional and increasingly popular diamond alternatives, like morganite, a warm pink stone that pairs perfectly with rose gold.
Traditionally, milestone anniversaries (like the first, fifth, 10th, etc.) are associated with different gifts. The jewelry piece for a first anniversary, for instance, is gold and the gemstone associated with the fifth anniversary is a sapphire. The 10th anniversary is usually paired with the gift of a diamond.
