You can never go wrong with jewelry. But at times, glitzy department stores, and name brand shops can be overwhelming and intimidating. While it might not be your first instinct to shop for diamonds and fine jewels online, Blue Nile has a curated selection of gifts to meet any budget, style or statement you’re trying to make. I’ve outlined a brief Blue Nile jewelry gift guide, and highlighted some of the hottest trends in jewelry.

In addition to diamonds, Blue Nile has a wide selection of fine jewelry, at an attainable price point. Opals are a huge trend in jewelry right now, and come at a reasonable price point. These rope stud opal earrings are so elegant, and I love how each stone is unique!
Blue Nile also has Gifts Under S100 if you’re still stuck! And with free shipping and returns, you can be assured it will be the perfect gift!
Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the astrology-enthusiast
If your loved one is always checking her horoscope and talking about mercury being in retrograde, I would suggest going with a birthstone piece. Birthstones have been resurging in popularity. Many notable celebrities including Kate Middleton, Jessica Simpson, Penelope Cruz and Olivia Wilde have semi-precious, coloured stones as engagement rings. Take that trend into the everyday, and invest in a fun, cocktail piece, like this aquamarine stunner or staple for everyday.

Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the minimalist
If your loved one just “isn’t into jewelry,” you can easily change their mind with a set of dainty, stacking rings. These can be mixed and matched with other jewelry pieces to make customized looks, or worn on their own to add understated elegance. The quality at Blue Nile is unparalleled online, and you can rest assured you’re getting a high quality piece that won’t react or turn green!
Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the couple that hasn’t said I-do yet
Promise rings seem to be an old-fashioned idea… but they’re making a comeback! While your relationship might not be at that point yet, a simple band of diamonds, or a ring featuring a semi-precious stone is a great alternative without the commitment. Make sure to pair it with another gift – like a book, luxury candle or perfume to make it not seem like you’re popping the question!
Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the career milestone
Whether it’s for graduation, a promotion or the start of a new career, a Classic Akoya cultured pearl strand necklace is a classic and elegant gift. At a lower price point, the Freshwater Cultured Pearl and White Topaz Pendant is under $100 and is elegant enough to wear everyday or for work events.
Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the push
If your partner is expecting, a push present is a must! After carrying a baby for about 9 months and going through labour, a sparkly token will be very much appreciated! I love this Colin Cowie Dash Diamond ring, with its simple, modern design. It can be worn on her right hand or alongside a simple wedding band to commemorate the accomplishment of a new life!
Blue Nile Jewelry gift guide: for the long haul couple
If you’ve walked down the aisle and started a family, and become more established in your careers, perhaps it’s time for an upgrade! Whether you’re celebrating a milestone or showering her with your affection, a ring upgrade is a great idea. Take the time to ask her what she loves about her original ring, what she wishes she had, or whether she wants something fun. Keep the discussion open and use Blue Nile’s Build Your Own Ring designer to select a setting and stone for the perfect design.
