Couples Jewelry: 11 Romantic Ideas that Make the Best Gifts

Couples jewelry gives you the chance to tell a story with style. It’s a charming reminder that like your love for each other, the gift is shared. As an added bonus, showing that you intend to wear the other half of a whole makes that gifting moment so much more special. Learn more about how couples bracelets, rings, necklaces can be a romantic symbol of who you and your partner are — together and apart. 

Why Get Matching Couples Jewelry?

When it comes to matching couples jewelry, you make the meaning. Matching couples jewelry can be a dramatic expression of how you feel complete with your partner (who doesn’t appreciate a pledge of eternal love?). It can say you’ve found your other half or that you belong to each other. And if you’re into those types of metaphors, the symmetry of your jewelry’s color, pattern, or design can imply that you’re equals in the couple, or it can represent how you bring each other harmony and balance. But your gift doesn’t have to be that serious. Corresponding jewelry can just be a cute nod to thinking of yourselves as two peas in a pod.

You can make this jewelry trend your own. While matching couples jewelry can signify a milestone or a promise, it can also be what you and your partner have in common. For example, the jewelry can be a symbol of shared values, such as adventure. The oneness can even honor an experience you both had, acting as a keepsake or memorial. Maybe the sameness is purely for fashion, as an acknowledgement of your appreciation for similar style.

You can interpret matching couples jewelry however you like. A gift always has more weight when it’s something you would choose for yourself.

Couples Jewelry: Cute or Cheesy?

It depends. The answer can be both, and that’s okay. Think about how your partner will perceive the gift. What will they think of how closely the jewelry matches? Will flaunting the same finish make you the envy of all relationship goals? Or will they think sharing accessories is tacky? (Don’t worry: there are ways around that. Keep reading.)

The sincerity and intent will come through in the context of the gift. It’s partly the when: are you gifting your couples jewelry on Valentine’s Day or a birthday, an early anniversary or one with high stakes? It’s a little bit of what: letters, numbers, and symbols all mean different things to different people. It’s also the why, so think about what you want the couples jewelry to say about your relationship. Do you need it to be evidence of commitment (or avoid it)?

Couples jewelry doesn’t have to be exactly matching to tell the world that you come in a pair. If it feels forced rather than sentimental, then your jewelry pieces can complement each other instead. Or, if you want to represent that each partner is their own person, your couples jewelry can have the same shape or finish in common, but each can be suited to the wearer. For example, you might mimic the essence of each other’s jewelry with a heart design or a gold band, but you vary the other elements, like the gemstone.

Even if your couples jewelry is two of the same piece, your partner can still put their spin on how and where its worn. In this case, your couples jewelry might physically represent how you’re alike, but different. You share certain qualities, but you’re independent.

Couples Jewelry Ideas 

Signet Rings

Signet comes from the Latin word for sign, so if you’re looking for your couples jewelry to be a sign of your affection, look no further. Historically, the family crest on the ring was dipped in wax to seal documents, so you could say signet rings help seal the deal.
