I’ve never been much of an accessories girl, but I love the look of a few classic power pieces — diamond earrings, a classic watch, stackable rings, layer-able necklaces, and dainty, delicate bracelets. This is definitely one of those gift areas where quality and quantity both come into play — you want the right pieces to become “daily essentials” and want to make sure they balance each other out. Classic jewelry is one of the best gifts to give if you’re looking for something for a girlfriend, something nice for your sister, a quality gift for a roomate, or something significant for your wife or daughter. I’ve looked long and thoroughly to make sure these are gifts that would be worn daily and really treasured and loved. You can shop most of the pieces by clicking directly on each image — but if they’re sold elsewhere, I’ve linked them in the text below along with a few other jewelry brands to try for everyday classics.
