Christmas shopping can be tough. Will they like it? Will they already have something similar? Does it show how much I care? But one gift that never fails is jewellery; it’s sentimental, wearable and can be treasured forever. We’ve put together our top tips on how to find that one Christmas jewellery gift that will make their face light up on Christmas morning.
Match their style
Pay attention to the type of jewellery they wear on an everyday basis. Do they like simple, understated jewellery? Or something that makes a statement? This will give you a good starting point when choosing their Christmas jewellery gift, and will help you choose a piece they will love and wear every single day.
Choose a piece with meaning
When it comes to finding a truly special Christmas jewellery gift, the more expensive pieces aren’t necessarily going to make the most impact. The key is to pick jewellery that holds real meaning and shows how much thought and time you have put into the gift. Choose a piece with their birthstone, a locket that you can place special photos inside, or a piece that represents your relationship.
One way to make a Christmas jewellery gift extra special and completely unique is to personalise it. The most popular and easy way to personalise jewellery is to have it engraved, this could be with their name, initials or even a special anniversary date. If you want to take it one step further, Jessie V E's ‘Feel the Love’ rings are designed with a hidden date or words in the actual diamonds using the Braille alphabet.
No rings (unless you’re planning a proposal or married!)
It’s kind of an unwritten rule that rings are a big no-no for gifts, unless it’s an engagement ring or you’re already married. Of course there are exceptions; eternity rings can make a really meaningful Christmas jewellery gift, but if you’re in the early stages of a relationship it’s best to avoid rings and the awkward misunderstandings.
If in doubt, go with diamonds
There are some pieces of jewellery that you just can’t go wrong with, and top of this list is diamonds. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a woman who wouldn’t appreciate opening up a pair of diamond earrings or a simple diamond pendant on Christmas morning. So if in doubt, anything with diamonds will make a beautiful Christmas jewellery gift.
