10 Gift-Worthy Jewelry Brands, Whatever Your Budget
Y'know, in case you feel like surprising a special someone.
(SPOT.ph) No matter how many times people deny it, it’s always nice to receive jewelry from a loved one. Maybe because buying them yourself makes you feel really guilty (…and because you’d rather spend your hard-earned cash by treating yourself to a buffet). But if you’re looking to spoil yourself a little (or if you’re planning to surprise someone), we put together a list of jewelry brands, both local and int ernational, and their respective price points, to make your life easier.
Initial Necklace with Gem (P425) and Stainless Mini Heart Necklace (P420)
Price range: P325 to P455
All of Wear Cari’s pieces are made with love. They have a wide selection of handcrafted jewelry like rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. We love how dainty and versatile each creation is. Each piece is stylish enough to be worn on its own, but you can layer them up if you’re going for a unique look. The best part? They won’t put a dent on your wallet. The downside? It’s going to be hard to buy just one piece!

There’s a reason why people flock to Pandora every Christmas and Valentine’s season: They’re fool-proof gift ideas for loved ones! That and because everyone seems to really like the idea of celebrating a milestone and remembering it through charms—their wide selection of charms is irresistible! Don’t get us wrong, though. Their rings, necklaces, and earrings all deserve the spotlight, too. But what really sets Pandora apart is that they have pieces for all kinds of budget. You can go for a simple but elegant ring worth P1,950 or one with a 14-carat gold heart for P9,650. But if you have a higher budget, we suggest going for their necklaces—they have a lot of lovely designs to choose from!
