Affordable Holiday Gift Ideas for the Jewelry Lover

You can now own a beautiful excellent quality classic freshwater pearl necklace and earring set at a much lower price than ever before. Since the price of gold has skyrocketed, many jewelry fans have turned to pearl jewelry finished with excellent quality sterling silver. There are also beautiful necklaces available in different shapes such as barocque, button, potato and rice shaped that are every bit as attractive than the round shape. Freshwater pearls are much more affordable than saltwater pearls, the main reason being that they may be less lustrous than the saltwater ones, although the quality of freshwater pearls has been steadily improving.

Another holiday gift idea would be sterling silver jewelry. The price of good quality sterling is affordable to most and there are many choices ranging from sterling silver alone to a combination of sterling with other stones such as cubic zirconium, marcasite, agate and many other semi-precious stones.

There is another metal that we are hearing more and more about and that is rhodium. Rhodium, part of the platinum family is a silver metal that is often used as a protective coating to white gold, sterling silver and other metal alloys such as copper. If you have ever seen jewelry coated with rhodium it is often very shiny and often mistaken for sterling silver.

If you are giving a piece of jewelry as a gift to someone special, having it personalized will be greatly appreciated. Here are some ideas: Choosing a pendant or charm in the person's zodiac or birthstone sign would be a great gesture. The recipient of a personalized gift often cherishes it more since a lot of thought has gone into it.

There is also a lot of fashion jewelry available made from copper, leather, wood, platinum and other materials that is very trendy and affordable. If you have many gifts to give the good thing about buying those types of jewelry is that you can stay well within your budget.
