I like to make jewelry as presents and when I am trying to decide what to put together for someone I ask questions like:

1. What kind of jewelry do they wear most frequently (necklace, bracelets, etc)?
2. What scale of jewelry to they wear? (delicate, large and bold?)
3. If earrings, do they like posts or dangly earrings? Big or small? Most people fall into a definite size range for earrings. I am used to small earrings and actually find very large ones uncomfortable.
4. Do they tend towards gold or silver tones? Or something less formal like leather bands?
5. What colors to they tend to wear (in either jewelry or clothes).
6. Do they like formal or less formal jewelry?

Based on the one sample you posted, I would look for gold tones and warm colors, not too large a scale. That necklace is reasonably classic but with a slightly modern twist due to the assymmetry of the beads. But only you know if the rest of her collection shares those characteristics.

Oh, and if you are looking for something unusual, Etsy has a large collection of interesting handmade jewelry online, tons of stuff in your price range.
Wow, thank you very much for so detail answers. From your answer, i have a clue what kind of jewelry to buy for her. Thanks again.

There are many jewelry online, and i think earrings are good. You can search on Google on or ebay.
