Tried and true friends—the ones you can call at any hour to celebrate a win (or commiserate a heartbreak), and who know all your most annoying habits but adore you anyway—are some of life’s most important allies. And, of course, they give their devotion without expecting anything more in return. But that makes surprising your BFF with a special surprise even sweeter. A diamond friendship necklace is a foolproof gift when you want to want to celebrate a forever friendship. Virtually indestructible and worn close to the heart, a diamond necklace will be a constant reminder of a relationship that can withstand anything. There’s no need to choose a blindingly big, over-the-top jewel. A small, sweet gesture is just as full of heartfelt meaning.
There’s more than one way to tackle finding the just-right piece. Think of the signs and shapes—a heart or lock, even a lucky number—that have personal meaning or recall a moment that you’ve shared, and you’re on the right track. Setting meaningful symbols with a sprinkling of sparkling diamonds makes the memories they represent feel all the more precious. And necklaces with two pendants are practically made for sharing between fast friends. Or better still, treat your bestie and yourself to matching necklaces or with similar but different designs. Why shouldn’t best friends share everything?
