Ranging from $575 to $3,500, this curated gift guide meets all your natural diamond needs. No matter the occasion or budget, gifting jewelry to friends and family is always a no brainer. Natural diamonds, just like the wonderful people in our lives, are rare. If you’re going to give this holiday season, diamonds are the gift that keep on giving, and these special pieces are the place to start.


There is nothing more classic than a diamond tennis necklace or bracelet – the little black dress of jewelry anyone would be thrilled to receive. The Clear Cut makes a perfect half-ten-nis necklace that adds just the right amount of sparkle to your everyday ensembles. De Beers’ Five Diamond Bracelet is both delicate and classic and a perfect starter piece for a collection. Perhaps you’re in the market for a pair of diamond earrings? Stephanie Gottlieb’s diamond studs and Birks Fine Jewelry huggies will add character to your ear party. Gabriel & Co’s bezel set solitaire is perfect on its own or built into a layered look. You can’t go wrong with diamond jewelry this classic, no matter who you’re shopping for.

All natural diamonds are billions of years old, but vintage jewelry evokes a di”erent kind of nostalgia – whether it’s an heirloom passed down from previous generations, a fabulous vintage find from the Victorian era, or a modern piece featuring old mine cut diamonds. These pieces come with a history and offer character and charm.

A symbolic piece of natural diamond jewelry can hold emotional value, whether it be an astrological design, a poignant pendant, or a literal initial, it immediately adds personal significance. Diamond zodiac charms from Jade Trau and rings from Azlee will not disappoint the star-sign lover in your life. Retrouvai’s Compass Pendant symbolizes a woman’s inner compass leading her through life. Nicole Rose, Brent Neale and Eriness each have a unique take on diamond initials to spell out your style or rep the ones you love.

There’s nothing more epic than Mckenzie Liautaud’s rock crystal and diamond ring.
