@ParisM:  Do you know her birthstone/month of birth? I know that I loved wearing jewelry featuring gemstones from my birth month. 

Also, what’s her favourite colour? For example, if it’s purple, I can look for an amethyst ring with pave diamonds (not as expensive as an full diamond ring).

@ParisM:  One more thing before I start looking. Is your limit 300 USD or 300 AUD?

If you can find something in your price range, I would definitely go the diamond route. It’s gonna feel so special to her.

I know that my tiffany studs were $500 so I’m sure you can find something for $300

How about single pearl stud earrings? I just bought a pair as a gift and they had a tiny diamond under as well – definitely on budget, classic and age-appropriate:

You all are posting some really lovely suggestions.

@ParisM:  My more tomboyish friends have the David Yurman twisted cable rings, and they love them. Maybe she’d like something similar?

I’d also check out Blue Topaz rings because they’re all beautiful (London, Swiss & Swiss):

Portuguese cuts are also gorgeous (all London Blue):

@ParisM:  Pearl studs! I had the choice when I was 16 of getting a small heart shaped diamond ring or pearl studs and I actually ended up getting both. But I wear the studs every day still, five years later. The ring, while I love it, mostly sits in my jewelry box. The pearl studs are timeless and go with everything!

I love Tiffany and Co. so I would have looooooved a charm bracelet for my 16th birthday. The bracelet will be something she will cherish forever and be so proud to wear.
