No one knows you like your best friend. From that crazy party you went to in college to what you really think about your boss, your shared history and secrets bind you together. With inside jokes, late night gossip sessions and a shared sense of style, no one gets you like your best gal pal. Such as unique friendship deserves a special gift.
When selecting a gift for your best friend, keep her unique style in mind. The closest of friends usually share aspects of their fashion sense. Look for pieces that let her embrace her favorite looks and coordinate well with her closet. Not able to define her style? Think back to what she was wearing on your last girl’s night, what you hauled into the fitting room on your latest shopping trip and which pieces of your she comments on.
For a really fantastic gift for your best friend, show her how much you care by splurging on something she wouldn’t buy herself. No matter which type of jewelry you choose, look for high-quality pieces that are luxurious and impressive.
There’s no better way to showcase your friendship than a classic friendship necklace set. The set contains two chains, each holding half of a heart charm with a phrase, such as “best friends” split across them. Each of you wears one of your necklace, proclaiming that the two are half of a whole. A long held tradition of schoolgirl friendships, versions with high-quality metals and upscale styling, such as the Nashelle Besties Identity Necklace are chic enough for even the most chic of friends.
Best friends give the best advice and pep talks. Give her a gift that lends words of wisdom even when you can’t be there. Bracelets etched with positive phrases, uplifting quotes and happy reminders are one of the hottest trends and make perfect gifts your closest gal pals. Alisa Michelle offers a rustic looking line with phrases such as “Love the life you live and live the live you love” and “Do amazing things”. To really express how important your friendship is, opt for the Charmed Circle John Lennon Quote Inspirational Bangle, which holds the phrase, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
The bright red stones are said to symbolize friendship, love and an open heart. Rubies have also been long believed to prevent and soothe quarrels between friends. Beyond symbolism, ruby jewelry is a beautiful addition to any wardrobe and is more versatile that you might expect. Look for pieces that blend timeless beauty with of-the-moment trends. A pair of beautiful drop earrings, such as the Jemma Sands Ruby Double Drop Earrings, should do the trick.
Like rubies, this deep blue stone symbolizes friendship and truth. It is said that the stone allows the wearer to be their true, authentic self and also encourages happiness and harmony in relationships. On a more fashionable note, the rich hue is powerful, luxurious and commands attention. The Janna Conner Round Lapis Earrings are perfect for casualwear while the A.V.

Every lovely lady needs a pair of practical but beautiful everyday earrings. While high-fashion long earrings, sparkling chandeliers and statement earrings get plenty of attention, there is nothing that defines classic elegance like a petite pair of stud earrings. They will instantly become the pair she reaches for day after day and she will love that you were able to find something that speaks to both her fashionable and practical sides. Look for pair of yellow or white gold studs, according to her skin tone and taste. The Melinda Maria Hunter Gold White CZ Pave Studs feature just enough sparkle to be fun and tasteful while the Crystal Streets CZ Star Stud Earrings are a fun twist on classic style.
Sometimes called “hand of Fatima” or “peaceful hand,” the hamsa symbol is rooted in both Middle Eastern and Jewish cultures. The hand-shaped amulet, with three fingers pointing down and the thumb and pinky curved outwards, is believed to protect against evil. It is also thought to being good luck, abundance, health and happiness, all of which are things best friends want for one another. Though the symbol dates back centuries, it is currently a popular motif in jewelry. The Twig Gold Hamsa Heart Necklace is a dainty piece that won’t break the bank while the J Weber Silver and Swarovski Peaceful Hand Pendant is a beautiful way to show off the style.
Evil eye jewelry
Similar to hamsa jewelry, evil eye pieces are believed to protect against evil spirits and negative energy. With a history that goes back to Sumeria and Middle Eastern cultures, evil eye jewelry is also thought to bring good luck and prosperity. Though they may be accented with a variety of colors, evil eye pieces often feature blue hues as it symbolizes water to wash away negativity and bring growth. The Seraphina CZ Evil Eye Hoop Earrings put a modern spin on the look, while the Blue Bijoux Gold and Crystal Evil Eye Ring is a bit more obvious.
No one understands her fashion sense like her best friend. Indulge her by picking up a piece from her favorite trend. While classic pieces that will stand the test of time have their place, sometimes a girl just ones a fun, trendy, loud accent. Whether she’s into the nautical look, boho or sparling crystals, take notice of what’s on her wish list and what styles she is currently experimenting with and grab a piece.
