Jewellery Gifts for her
Whether you are celebrating your first year of dating, her birthday, Valentine’s Day or your wedding anniversary, it can be an intimidating task to select the perfect piece of jewellery for your loved one from the vast array that are available. It’s simple to go the biggest rock or other grand gesture, but will it reflect her style and will she want to wear it? Show her that you care by considering her personal style. It will also make your choice a lot easier.
Match her style
If your partner loves dressing up for a night out, adores her high heels and loves all things that dazzle and sparkle, try adding some extra bling to her wedding and engagement rings with a glamorous stacking ruby ring that symbolises love. If you are looking for jewellery for a female friend or family member, you may like to consider something a little more understated such as a colourful mixed crystal bracelet.
The woman who loves to stand-out has a unique sense of style and chooses pieces that reflect her independent spirit. Bold, bright jewellery that symbolise your relationship in the design, such as interlaced branches of a ring representing harmony and unity is a gift she will treasure.
If her wardrobe contains timeless classics like cashmere sweaters, pencil skirts and slim cut denim, she has a classic sense of style and may prefer simple, elegant pieces over more trendy styles.
If you are looking for a gift to mark a very special occasion – like your first wedding anniversary, consider a timeless piece of fine jewellery (check www.firstanniversarygifts.co.uk for ideas). This can include 24 karat gold bracelets with large quality gems if you have the budget. If you can’t stretch so far, you can still purchase fine jewellery at lower prices if you choose 10 karat gold and smaller gems as a cluster if you want something bold or as a single gem for a classic look.
Generally rings are less expensive than necklaces, bracelets, and earrings because there is less to them. These are great gifts for your sister as well as your partner. You can buy a ring on the second-hand market from all different jewellery eras to suit anyone’s taste. If you’re not sure what jewellery to buy, organise a shopping date with her so you can share the experience and have fun. Combine this with lunch date, to make a perfect day out.
If you want fine heirloom quality jewellery then look at antique gold jewellery that contain a lot more gold than some modern gold pieces. Antique necklaces come in a variety of shapes and colours. The majority of these 10 karat gold beauties feature pearls, amethyst, jade, diamonds and other very popular stones so you can match the gift to your partner’s style or birthstone.
You don’t have to purchase jewellery made from precious metals like platinum and gold. Beautiful jewellery can be made from sterling silver, copper, leather with glass and synthetic gems that look like the real thing. If the piece is the style, fit and look for the woman you’re buying for then you’ll have found a perfect gift.
Diamond Stud Earrings
If you are determined to buy diamonds for your lady, diamond stud earrings are a staple romantic present. Since they are on your ears and not seen up close, diamond colour and clarity is not as important as when the stone is on a ring. You won’t get anything extremely large, but you will be able to score genuine diamonds in solid gold.
Customise the jewellery
Whatever your choice of jewellery, there are lots of options for monogrammed jewellery with her initials. Whether an enamel bracelet, a locket or a leather cuff, she will appreciate the thought you have put into the gift by having it customised. You can also personalise jewellery by engraving a special date, quote or saying on a ring or bracelet.
Birthstone jewellery is a great gift to celebrate your lover’s birthday. There are very good synthetic birthstone options available too. If you’re looking online, read the jewellery descriptions carefully to find out if the stones are genuine or faux. Here is a list of the birthstones by month, together with their most common colour.
