Finding a thoughtful piece of jewelry to gift your partner can be a daunting task. So why not go off the beaten track and opt for couples jewelry? Sure you can’t go wrong with a pair of gold hoops; pearls are also always a good idea but a his-and-hers (or hers-and-hers, or any other combination!) might have the most impact. The most memorable jewelry gifts come in pairs and who said couples dressing had to stop at clothing?
With the rise of genderless and gender-fluid dressing as well as the ever-evolving men’s jewelry market, Valentine’s Day, birthdays, and milestones can offer the perfect occasion to up your partner’s jewelry game. If your partner has always commented on your chain necklace, surprise them with a matching bracelet. For the trendy couple, gift your partner an A$AP Rocky–worthy pearl necklace to complement your pearl earrings. For the couple that simply can’t get enough of each other, matching nameplate necklaces will do just the trick. Below, shop the 14 best couples jewelry gifts to be the most lovey-dovey couple in town.
Necklaces and Lovely Lockets
Go for a classic locket—it worked for the Victorians! We like Pattaraphan’s simple silver style, but who says lockets must come in necklace form? Jennifer Behr’s locket earrings are the novel choice—one in your ear, the other in theirs.
Earrings for Your Stud
Go for rose gold with Anita Ko’s huggies—a subtle statement if your partner isn’t big on bling. For something with edge, there is Foundrae’s single dangly earring.
ID Bracelets for You Both
Whether its yellow gold or gunmetal silver, match-and-match or mix-and-match with a set of these. We like options from Monica Rich Kosann and Mejuri. Even better if you engrave the plate with something extra personal.
Pearls have proven to be one of the most classic and trendy gems of late, perhaps rivaling the diamond in ubiquity. Monbouquette’s drop earrings and www.willshot’s pearl necklace are updated takes on classic pearl jewelry.
Thoughtful and Personalized
We all know and love personalized jewelry as a way to express ourselves, but why not take it a step further by memorializing your one true love’s name in gold or silver? Try Susan Alexandra’s customizable necklace for something a bit funkier, and K Kane’s letter chain necklace for a more classic turn.
Is there anything chicer than couples in matching steel watches? Didn’t think so. We recommend the classic Hermès Nantucket watch and Breda’s sleek Virgil watch.
Chain jewelry is about as classic as it gets. For the couple that’s big on love and the classics, you can’t go wrong with a chain necklace or bracelet. Bernard James’s Reece bracelet will look great paired with that new steel watch, and your partner will want to pair their new Kloto link necklace with everything they own.
