The Best Gift: Diamond Earrings or Gemstones?

Earrings are a common and well received gift for both men and women alike. Shopping for earrings can be an overwhelming process – so many choices, so many settings, so many colours. One of the basic considerations is whether to go for diamond earrings or gemstones. Both have their advantages, so hopefully the following advice will help.

Gemstones can be a way to break out of traditional expectations, if you’re giving a gift for a person who enjoys challenging expectations. Think about how many celebrities are jumping on the trend of emerald engagement rings, for example. If a woman enjoys colour and embraces bold trends, then gemstone earrings can be a wonderful gift to help her express her creativity. Just the same, gemstones can be a wonderful way of marking traditional gifts. Birthstones are still a very popular gift to create personal meaning for someone special. Birthstone earrings come in a variety of precious gemstones that anyone could appreciate.

Diamonds are still the go-to gift when it comes to making a serious statement. A more traditional woman will appreciate diamond stud earrings, for example, as they are the equivalent of having a little black dress in your closet. Diamond studs can also dress up any outfit and work well at the office or a more casual setting. If you’re looking for the gift that truly goes anywhere, you cannot go wrong with diamond studs.

So which is the better gift? Well, it depends on the person receiving it. Matching the gift with the personality and style of the receiver is the best way to make that decision.
