A young lady’s sweet 16 is a huge milestone in her young life. It is a time when she is not seen as a young child, but entering into the adult world. The appropriate sweet 16 jewelry gift has changed over the years; however, every culture has a coming of age celebration. It is a time to have a large birthday party with family and friends, start driving on your own, be trusted with a cell phone, maybe even maintain an emergency credit card from your parents. Things are changing, and your sweet daughter is being held at a different standard now.
Sweet 16 Jewelry Gift Ideas for Every Budget
Giving a Gift that Lasts a Lifetime
Instead of giving your child a new dress, shoes she’ll outgrow,and hair straightener; why not give a gift that will last a lifetime. Jewelry is the best sweet 16 gift to give for a milestone birthday like this one. You can find a beautiful piece of jewelry for any budget, or have a family heirloom fixed up for the occasion.
Your Teenager Loves Grandma’s Pearls Too!
Grandma’s pearls would be a wonderful gift! Match them with a set of earrings (creating a set), and have them restrung. This is a minimal, but meaningful gesture. She can wear them for any occasion for years to come. Every woman needs a gorgeous set of pearls. Having them restrung will guarantee they will not break immediately and offer a chance to have the jeweler clean each pearl inside and out before restringing them onto a fresh, bright strand of silk. Make it even more special and surprise her with them when you both are alone, and she is getting ready for her party.
Another great idea is a solitaire pendant or ring of her favorite color, or birthstone. Gemstones are cost effective and can be worn throughout life. If you decide to purchase her first ring, don’t worry she can switch it to her right hand when she becomes engaged. When she has a daughter of her own, she will be able to pass down this colorful token of love at her sweet 16 as well. Not everyone is a fan of their birthstone, which makes her favorite color a beautiful option.
Diamonds Are Your Sweet 16’s Best Friend
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! You can always go for a beautiful pair of studs that she can wear constantly! A lot of places offer upgrade stud options. With that option you can start smaller and upgrade throughout life. For graduations, professional milestones, and as a wedding gift you can keep trading in your previous pair for a slightly larger pair. Studs are classic and timeless. This is a wonderful option for all women of any age.
