Gold Earrings

You can find some really beautiful gold earrings that are both impressive as well as inexpensive. You have a lot of room to work with here.

There are endless variations and you can find them in 14k gold and it won't cost you a tremendous amount of money.

Silver Necklace

Another cool idea to consider are silver necklaces. These can be chokers, or teardrop necklaces, or a simple silver necklace with a teardrop design pendant. The great thing about a necklace is that it can be as subtle or as decorative as you want. A simple silver necklace without a pendant, or a Y necklace, or even one with a pendant design.  The options are endless. There are also braided silver necklaces that you can find. These will be thicker than a normal necklace and are great if you want something substantial without a pendant.

Birthstone Pendants

If you want something really personal and you like the idea of a decorative stone. One fun idea is to get the person a pendant of their birthstone. You can even pair it with a silver necklace to be more unique. And you have choices that are not extravagant in cost, even with April, which has Diamond as a birthstone, you have the option of using crystal. A nice polished crystal in a beautiful silver necklace would be a great gift for someone whose birthday is in April. Other beautiful birthstones such as tourmaline and garnet look wonderful set into a pendant and affixed to a necklace.

A Vintage Brooch

If the person who you are getting the gift for is into vintage clothing, you might want to get them a vintage brooch. These are beautiful and you can find them in an array of designs, from floral to Victorian style cameos.
