A gold necklace that’s meant to represent your connection…

Show ’em how you feel with this symbolic design of two perfect gold hoops intertwined. You can keep it simple with 14-karat or 18-karat solid gold in yellow, rose, or white, or you can splurge on its diamond counterpart. Both options come with a lifetime warranty and have been ethically sourced. Sweet, chic, and sustainable? Check, check, and check. ($390+, Aurate)

A gold charm bracelet you can add to throughout the years…

This fun oversized chain link is designed to look like paper clips strung together and can hold up to three charms per link. Snag it in sterling silver, 18-karat gold plating, 18-karat rose gold plating, or 18-karat gold vermeil, and add up to six charms in your order. Each charm can be inscribed with up to nine characters for no extra charge. This one makes a great gift for pretty much any occasion, TBH. ($85+, Myka)

A birthstone necklace you can customize…

With names of children, your and your partner’s name, or anyone else. Add up to four inscriptions and four gemstones on either side of the 3D bar. Choose from one of four metals — sterling silver, 18-karat gold plating, 18-karat rose gold plating, or 18-karat gold vermeil — and three chain length options. Then get ready for the happy tears. ($95+, Myka)

A silver ring that’s the definition of a statement piece…

With a subtle chain in the back and a striking oval with engraved details in the front, this ring is an HQ’r fave. It’s made from sterling silver and gives a modern nod to the classic baroque ring. We rec pairing it with some daintier options like this curb chain ring from the same brand. ($300, Farfetch)

Buy it

A freshwater pearl necklace with pops of color…

Because pearls aren’t just for your grandma. This trendy take on the classic style uses tiny rainbow-colored beads to separate each freshwater pearl. It’s got an adjustable length of 18 inches, so they can wear it like a choker or loosen it up for a more casual look. And snag them a dainty chain while you’re at it to create a perfect layering look. ($105, Rellery)

A gold ring designed with a rose quartz stone…

This simple statement ring from an environmentally forward brand is basically a foolproof crowd-pleaser. It’s made with 14-karat gold vermeil that has recycled sterling silver dipped in several layers of recycled 14-karat gold, and the gemstone has been recycled from vintage jewelry items. Psst…you can choose from amethyst, citrine, or prasiolite gemstones as well. ($185+, Wolf and Badger)

Buy it

A handcrafted silver necklace with mixed links…

One side’s a chunky tiered curb chain and the other is a dainty cable chain linked together to create a perfectly balanced choker. It’s made from polished sterling silver plated brass with a patina finish, and has a logo engraved lobster-clasp fastening. Not everything that glitters is gold. ($219, Ssense)

Mini hoop earrings that’ll hug their earlobes…

And lock with a click so they can wear them to the gym without worrying if they’ll fall off by accident. They’re made from 14-karat gold-dipped brass and have a high polished shine. Pro tip: If they’ve got second and third holes, snag them these teenie hoops meant to complete their ear stack. ($90, Jenny Bird)

And chunky hanging hoops that make a bigger statement…

These are versatile enough to be their everyday go-tos, whether they’re heading to the office or happy hour. They’re simple enough to pair with any outfit and have hollow tubing so they won’t hurt after hours of wear. The earrings come in 10-karat yellow gold–plated brass, silver rhodium–plated brass, or 14-karat rose gold–plated brass. ($295+, Jennifer Fisher)

A textured silver ring perfect for stacking…

This design takes inspiration from natural rock formations and has a thin band that looks just as great on its own as it does paired with other simpler rings. It’s made from sterling silver and is available in one size, but can be adjusted by pulling or squeezing. (And once they’re happy with the size of the ring, just be sure not to adjust it too often.) This one’s a great choice for anyone who appreciates a nontraditional ring design made with sustainability in mind. ($56, Wolf & Badger)

A nameplate necklace if they love “Sex and the City”…

For Carrie vibes, we look to The M Jewelers (based out of New York, of course) for our nameplate necklaces. Personalize with their name, initials, or a special phrase you know they’d appreciate. We also love the gothic version for a little more edge. Psst…they’re always having a sale, so keep your eyes peeled before ordering. ($170, The M Jewelers)

A shimmering, ultra-fine diamond-cut gold bracelet…

If they’re all about dainty pieces, they’ll love this delicate gold bracelet from one of our favorite jewelry retailers. Catbird’s in-house brand is handmade in Brooklyn from recycled gold (a win for sustainability). The chain’s been hand twisted and it’s sturdy enough to hold a couple charms too. Psst…we also gift their engraved tiny keys all the time. ($108+, Catbird)

Buy it

A heart pendant necklace with pavé diamonds…

Nothing has “Valentine’s Day gifting” written all over it like a heart pavé necklace for the one who has yours. This one comes in solid 14-karat yellow or white gold, and is designed with six responsibly sourced diamonds in the center. It’s got an adjustable 16- to 18-inch chain and customers say it looks gorgeous layered with V-neck tops. We have a feeling it’ll look stunning paired with just about anything. ($900, Mejuri)
