Jewelry You Actually Want to Give—and Receive
The jewelry we wear is deeply personal, often passed down or given to mark a special or symbolic moment. So it’s natural when it comes to gifting a piece of jewelry to want to ensure its recipient will love it, and wear it often. A few things to consider: Timelessness, of course (the best pieces take inspiration from cherished classics), but also versatility (your best jewelry needn’t be worn strictly in fancier situations). Below, our edit of modern jewelry box staples.
