Jewelry Gift Ideas for Their 30th Birthday

How to find the perfect gift for a 30th birthday? A few tips.

Celebrate With a Meaningful Gift

Turning 30 is a rite of passage into "real" adulthood — and an especially wonderful moment to honor someone with the gift of fine jewelry. Here's how to make yours a gift that speaks to their current style, while helping build a jewelry "wardrobe" for the future.

Delight with gems
Many women (and men) haven't invested in gemstone jewelry, be it a diamond, their birthstone or a gem in a favorite color. For her, think fun rings, necklaces and bracelets, or diamond studs, dangles or hoops. For him, look to tie pins, tie bars and cuff links, finished with a beautiful gemstone.

Make it truly theirs
Engraving turns a bracelet, necklace, watch or set of cufflinks into something extra special. Add their birthdate or year, or make it fun with "Forever 29."

Watch for excitement
Despite the fact that most of us tell time on our phones, watches remain treasured collectibles. From classic to dressy to sporty, look for mixed metals or crystal or diamond accented designs to make this gift on trend and much-appreciated.

Dive for pearls
So beautiful, so classic, it's hard to go wrong with cultured pearls. Make your gift modern with pearls in colors like white, black and pink.
