Like diamonds, gold is sure to please. It’s one of few gifts that can increase in value and be taken with you wherever you go. Plus, there’s the envy factor. (Who doesn’t like to show off bling?) The monogram—in necklace, earring, ring, or bracelet form—is a classic style that continues to be reinterpreted in modern ways, and gold is, well, gold, so the combination of the two is foolproof.
