September 15th, 2011 by wys

It’s a known fact that all women love jewelry. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that many jewelry boxes for women are available to safely keep their precious possessions. Since they were little, girls have always loved to collect and keep their precious keepsakes in a special receptacle.

They would often receive jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets or a pair of earrings that had unusual designs. They would then keep them in colorful musical boxes that often had a ballerina or figurine twirling as you opened the lid. These jewelry boxes often had the image of a favorite cartoon character such as Ariel, the Little Mermaid or Cinderella.

But as girls mature into women, their tastes in jewelry as well as jewelry boxes become more sophisticated. If you want to give jewelry as a gift, choose one that is suitable to the age of the recipient.

Here are some ideas of jewelry for women that belong to different age groups.


Teenagers are such fashionistas they prefer jewelry that will get them noticed. Try to select colorful pieces that will show off their personality. Why not get a gold plated cuff bracelet or a sterling silver necklace with a heart-shaped pendant? Teen aged girls will love this.

Women in their 20s

A twenty something woman is just beginning her career. Why not give something that will make her look professional? Something that will be work appropriate is a pair of simple gold studs. Dainty pearl earrings will also be a suitable gift. Pearls are very classy and never go out of fashion. She can use them for work and even formal occasions.

Women in their 30s

Women who are in their 30s are starting to establish themselves. They have key positions in companies and are most probably already starting a family. During this stage in their life, they deserve something more precious and expensive. A good gift would be a pair of diamond earrings or a diamond necklace because this will make her feel valued and appreciated.

Women in their 40s

Elegant pieces are suitable for forty something women. Jewelry sets are a welcome gift. You can go for a set of emerald earrings, necklace and a ring. They will be perfect for formal dinners and other important occasions.

Women over 50

Jewelry for women in their golden years should reflect their classic style. Try to avoid gaudy and flashy pieces. Instead, go for classic pieces such as pearls and rhinestone jewelry. You can get them huge, chunky jewelry that will make them look as fashionable as ever.

Because women have an extensive collection of jewelry, proper storage is absolutely necessary. Women’s jewelry boxes therefore are very important. Sophisticated boxes made of wood, leather or fabric take the place of the plastic boxes that little girls once cherished.

Exquisitely carved wooden boxes are particularly favored because they are unique and their designs are timeless. These spectacular boxes are classic and more often than not become family heirlooms. Therefore the perfect piece of jewelry placed inside a matching jewelry box will be something that a woman of any age will love.
