Gifting with Girl Meets Bow: Gifts that Sparkle

Oh happy day y’all, we’re about to talk about one of my favorite things : jewelry! As I’ve shared with y’all before, in my “day job” I’m a jewelry buyer for a large retail company, so as you can imagine I believe in the power of sparkle and how one necklace (or earring, or bracelet) can change your whole look!

Now normally I pick up new baubles all on my own, but the holiday season is also the perfect time to give a gift of that will make your bestie, mom, sister, and friends shine! I’m sharing a few of my go-to pieces today: classic pearls, my monogrammed necklace, shimmering hoops, & a gemstone ring. All of these are on heavy rotation in my wardrobe but also make a perfect gift to give. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see my round-up of the best jewelry pieces to give (and receive)! :)

Something else I’ve learned in the past 5 years in the jewelry industry is just how precious our favorite jewelry is- because they often come with stories and precious memories. If you decide to give a gift of sparkle this holiday season, now is the time to think about protection through Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, because accidents can happen no matter how careful we are with our jewelry- that’s why there is jewelry insurance. 

I recently lost one of my favorite layering necklaces, and it made me realize just how important insurance is to protection those pieces we love dearly. You can gift with peace of mind because Jewelers Mutual has been exclusively insuring jewelry for more than 100 years and offers repair or replacement coverage that includes worldwide travel protection for all types of jewelry an watches. Coverage includes loss, theft, damage, and mysterious disappearance (unexplained loss). Y’all that makes me feel so much safer- especially with all the trips I have booked already in 2017!

Now that you’ve seen a few of my go-to pieces, here’s some gifts that I believe every woman needs in her jewelry wardrobe! Gift them to your bestie (or yourself) or send this to your hubby and tell him this is your wish list! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with any of these :)

      I definitely re-wear my favorite pieces a little too often, so it's nice to pick up some fun new pieces to switch it up 🙂
