(SPOT.ph) They say it’s the thought that counts when it comes to giving gifts. There’s a different kind of thoughtfulness that goes into getting someone a present that was chosen especially for them: it could be an item you knew they had always wanted, a sentimental piece with a personal message behind it, or a gift custom-picked to suit their style or personality. One of the easiest ways to do this is with jewelry. A shiny piece of bling can make anyone feel special—more so when it has a personal or customized touch. Whether you get that special someone a necklace with their name engraved, a ring with their initials on it, or an accessory to match their zodiac sign or birthstone, they’ll know you were really thinking of them when you bought it.

This bracelet from RAM Jewelry can be worn on its own or with a dainty watch for a delicate jewelry ensemble that’s perfect for work and formal occasions.
