Traditionally, diamonds and other gems are popular holiday gifts at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Easter and for milestones like birthdays, wedding anniversaries or graduation. Today, though, diamonds, pearls, or other gemstones are appropriate gifts for any occasion.
Diamonds, pearls, and an exciting array of new and traditional gems are showing up on everything from tennis bracelets and cufflinks to men’s watches and other fashion accessories. It is important to remember that there are no hard and set rules for giving a gift of jewelry to a loved one. Any time is a good time; any reason is a good reason. You can even buy jewelry to reward yourself! Your local American Gem Society titleholder will help you make the best possible buying decision. Choose a jeweler you can trust, inquire about the care of your jewelry purchase, and make sure to purchase a piece that reflects the recipient’s personality.
