nwmr- popular jewelry for 16 yr olds?

once upon a time things like the tiffany bean necklace and their chain bracelet made for good keepsake, can use for a long time type jewelry but those are not around anymore & I'm sure things have changed...looking for a jewelry idea for a 16 yr old bday that is not over $200 but something that she could use at least into college as a 'nice' piece of jewelry...any high school teachers or others who know what type of thing teenagers might like/use/appreciate?

    I still love my TCo bean that I got when I was 17! They still have a lot of sterling pieces that are under 200. I personally love any Peretti necklace from Tiffany. I recently gave an initial necklace as a gift: http://m.tiffany.com/mobile/shopping/Item.aspx?langprefforca=1sku=GRP00330

  • Not sure if you have them where you are, but you could do a Pandora necklace. You buy charms for them. That way if she wants to change them or add to them later on, she can. I'm not a big jewelry person myself, but my mom gave the charm bracelets from there to my cousins for their graduations and they loved them. They make charms for all ages.
  • I was going to suggest Pandora as well. I am not a jewelry person, but I have heard good things.

  • I got my sister a simple white pearl necklace for her 18th birthday.  It's timeless, traditional, and memorable.

    The Alex and Ani bracelets are popular now.  They're a lot less than $200 but you could get a few so she could stack them. 

    ETA:  Or check out etsy, they have some really unique jewelry.  Maybe something with her initial?

    Haha... honestly, either did I!  I bought my sister one that says "Aunt" and then noticed how much people wear them.

  • Most of the girls in my high school wear fake trendy stuff.  Some have really nice diamond earrings or necklaces.  You could always get a pretty birthstone necklace or earrings.  Other girls  have pretty white gold hearts or a pendent of things they enjoy doing (ballet slippers, their number of their sports team etc)

  • All the girls in my family wear the Tiffany's Venetian link bracelet.  It's our thing.

    Also, agree with Pandora.  It's fun to build on it.

  • Stick with Tiffany's, IMO. There are a lot of necklaces under 200 and she will have it forever.
