Searching for the perfect piece of jewellery for a special someone this Christmas? With so many styles to choose from, it can be mind boggling and time consuming trying to find an item that’s just right. If you’re struggling to select jewellery for your loved one, don’t freak out. Check out these top tips that will make sure you choose something they’ll treasure for years to come.
Make sure it suits their style
The first thing to do is get an idea of the style of jewellery they like. The best way to do this is to catch a glimpse of what they wear regularly or get a sneak peek of their jewellery box. Do they wear earrings every day? If so, what style are they? Simple and understated, or bright and bold? This will give you a good idea of the type of item to buy. Choose something you know they’ll get a lot of use out of, rather than something you think is a little different to their usual taste.
Choose their favourite metal
When you’re investigating the style they usually go for, make sure you check out the type of metal they prefer. If all their jewellery is silver, then choose a silver item as they are more likely to wear it. Or, if their jewellery box is full of rose gold or classic gold items, pick something crafted from these metals. It will avoid the awkward situation where they tell you “I love it!” but it ends up at the bottom of their jewellery box never to see the light of day…
Pick something personal
There are tonnes of jewellers and high-street stores that sell beautiful pieces of jewellery with a personal touch. You could buy them a striking necklace with their favourite symbol or their name as the pendant. There’s also lots of star sign jewellery available that features zodiac signs, often encrusted with sparkling crystals or diamonds.
Get it engraved
Want to make your gift extra special? Why not get it engraved? There are so many things you could personalise the piece of jewellery with. For example, you could get s significant date from your relationship inscribed, like the date you met or the date you got married. Or, you could have a personal message (depending on the size of the item) engraved that is sure to put a smile on their face.
Opt for their birthstone
Another way to show that you’ve put lots of thought into their gift is to buy them an item featuring their birthstone. Each beautiful stone has their own unique meaning, so they make the perfect personalised present for your significant other. There are loads of options too, from rings to necklaces and earrings, in statement and simple styles!
Give a gift that’s truly personal this festive season with these top tips. Your loved one is sure to appreciate the thought and effort that has gone into picking the perfect piece!
