Foolproof hoops, a classic watch, or modern pearls? Here's what jewelry lovers are coveting this season.

Everyone deserves some extra sparkle this year, but finding the best jewelry to give your BFF, mom, boyfriend, or girlfriend for the holidays comes with challenges. Assuming you've done a little snooping in their jewelry box to see what they like and already have, you can't go wrong with a personal twist on a tried-and-true jewel. We like monogrammed anything (obviously), elevated friendship bracelets, and the kind of better-than-basic baubles that can be thrown on top of anything and make someone feel 100-times better, because isn't that all you really want for your loved ones anyway?
