I’ll admit it—yesterday’s holiday gift guide for naughty people was more fun to put together. Perhaps that’s because nice people are deserving of fine jewelry gifts not just during the holidays, but all year round.
Below, 10 designs for those who haven’t a mean bone in their body. The ones who “go high.” The ones who are as reasonable as they are lovable. And never, ever drop the f-bomb.
Diamond studs are a classic way to lavish affection on lovely people—heart shapes take it a whole new level. (Baguette diamond heart stud earrings in 14k rose gold, $1,195; Anne Sisteron)
For your angel of the morning. (Baby Angel Solitaire with ruby in 18k yellow gold, price on request; Carrera y Carrera; also at top)
For someone with “traditional values,” yet kind and generous to those who are less fortunate. Imagine that. (18-inch pearl necklace with white South Sea pearls and an 18k white gold bead clasp, $80,000; Mastoloni)
For your bae, a pair of earrings featuring swallows, which mate for life. (Swallow Wreath earrings with mother-of-pearl, enamel, and lab-created gemstones in 18k rose gold, $1,375; Anabela Chan)
If she’s worthy of your love, spell it out with amethyst, moonstone, opal, ruby, and emerald stones set in an acrostic ring—a modern take on a Victorian style. (Message Me Ring – Amore in 14k yellow gold, $950; Lulu & Shay)
Or spell it out, a little louder this time, in diamonds. (Only You collection “Darling” bracelet with diamonds in 18k yellow gold, $8,800; Spallanzani)
For someone incredibly gracious, composed and benevolent. A princess in the best possible way. (Belle Èpoque tiara with European-cut diamonds in platinum, $45,000; 1stdibs.com)
For the animal lover/volunteer/activist, a photograph of her pup preserved in a custom portrait pendant made of rock crystal, mother-of-pearl, and quartz. (Medium Round Spencer Portrait with diamonds in 18k yellow gold, $3,500; Spencer Fine Jewelry)
When sweet doesn’t even begin to describe her. (Cupcake Necklace with pink sapphires in 14k yellow and rose gold, $1,080; Sydney Evan)
For your lifeline. (Amour Heartbeat earcuff in 18k yellow gold, $1,139; Delphine Leymarie)
