Many people believe there is no present better suited to give a loved one than world class jewelry. With centuries, even millennia, behind the tradition of giving jewelry to celebrate love and romance, the recipient of a beautiful piece will bask in both the piece itself and the knowledge of its value to the giver. But where is one to begin when faced with the quest for that perfect piece of world class jewelry?

First, you might want to think about what type of jewelry you want to give. It's easy to answer that question if you are looking for a traditional engagement or wedding ring; but when celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation, an achievement, a religious ceremony, or any number of other events, it becomes much more a matter of what you wish to convey and what you think the recipient would like the most.

This is where the taste and personal style determines the perfect gift. You may be giving a gift to man who always admired his grandfather's ID bracelet, or a woman whose eyes light up every time she sees a three-stone anniversary band on a commercial. When you look for the little signs that indicate what your loved one likes the most, you will be most rewarded by their pleasure when you give them a piece of world class jewelry.

What Makes World Class Jewelry?

First, world class jewelry can be made from only the finest quality metals. Gold, silver, white gold, and platinum are among the finest, and you will find many options. Gold can come in different karat weights. Silver from certain regions is most prized. Platinum is rapidly gaining popularly as one of the most precious metals. Any of these can form world class jewelry when combined with a beautiful design, or precious stones.

Traditionally, people think of necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings at the main types of jewelry. But even among these, there are so many types. Chains can be fashioned in any number of different ways--with light, delicate links, or with heavier construction, such as omega links. A necklace can be a simple chain, or a pendant with a significant charm or stone hanging from it. Earrings can be studs with precious stones, or elaborate dangling works of art. A beautiful or innovative design is critical in forming a truly world class piece of jewelry.

Precious stones are also an element of world class jewelry. Many people consider diamonds to be the most beautiful, romantic, and glamorous stones (and pages could be written on types of diamonds alone). There are occasions and situations, however, when rubies, emeralds, sapphires, pearls, even CZs will be the stones which bring the wearer greatest delight.

Finding the Perfect Item of World Class Jewelry

It may take a little while to find the perfect piece to give someone. You'll need to take into consideration your budget, as well as their taste. And once you've decided, for example, that you want to get them a white gold ring with a solitaire sapphire, you will still have to find out about cuts and colors, manufacturers and retailers.

The Internet can be an invaluable resource in finding the perfect item of world class jewelry for the person whose perfection you want to celebrate it. When you see that person's face light up, and realize that not only will they cherish it forever, but that it will become a treasured heirloom, that work will all seem worth it. Diamonds may be some girls' best friends; but for those men and women who have slightly different taste, they will still prefer that one perfect piece out there somewhere.
