Choosing memorable jewellery for Christmas

It’s the Christmas season which means it’s time to pick out some truly memorable gifts for your loved ones! And what’s more special than a carefully selected piece of jewellery?

Jewellery is a timeless gift that’s always appreciated – who doesn’t love a shiny new ring to add to their collection?

There are a lot of different ways to customise jewellery as well so you can make it a more personal and memorable Christmas present.

So what exactly should you keep in mind when selecting the perfect Christmas present?

1. Do your research

Doing a little bit of spy work will go a long way when it comes to selecting the perfect jewellery piece this holiday season. Ask yourself a few key questions:

  1. What accessories do they wear on a regular basis?
  2. Do they have certain staple jewellery items? What are they?
  3. Do they seem to prefer gold or silver?
  4. Are their jewellery selections usually bold or minimalist?

All of this information will help you select a present they’ll truly enjoy. Obviously, there’s no point in buying someone a necklace when they never wear one. Do the research now, it’ll pay off later.

2. Make it personal

Nothing can be truly memorable if it’s not selected with the gift-receiver in mind. Sure a shiny diamond will make them smile but a gemstone similar to the one their great grandmother always wore is something they’ll never forget. Take the time to think about what would be meaningful for your loved one, it will make all the difference.

3. Determine what you’re trying to say

Jewellery holds meaning, it’s part of the reason it’s such a memorable gift. Different styles indicate certain types of symbolism. Gems can portray a meaning in themselves. Ring shapes take on a message of their own. Whatever you want to say can be said without words through your jewellery selection.

For romance, consider an infinity piece, symbolising your everlasting love. For friends, try selecting charms or pendants with unique birthstones matched to them. No matter the message, jewellery is the most memorable medium.

Why should you choose two toned jewellery this Christmas?

Two toned jewellery, defined as the fusion of different coloured metals in the same piece, has been a popular choice among jewellery lovers for quite a while now.

It’s not difficult to see why. Two toned pieces are versatile, unique and timeless. When it comes to these jewellery staples, the sky is truly the limit. You can combine any type of metal you fancy, from a classic mix of yellow gold with platinum to a trendy rose gold and silver pairing.

Let’s have a look at just why two toned jewellery should be your choice this Christmas.

1. It goes with everything

Arguably the best thing about two toned jewellery is that it goes with almost everything. Whether you’re heading off to your office Christmas party or a brunch with your best friends, these pieces are the perfect addition to your outfit. It doesn’t matter what other accessories you’re wearing, a two toned piece will blend effortlessly!

2. It highlights ring jewellery design

It might surprise you just how well the combination of white and yellow gold or white and rose gold can highlight the shape and design of your ring! In other words, it simply adds an interesting twist to any piece of jewellery.

We’ve all seen single toned rings with lots of small stones where the shapes and designs seems to be lost. Two toned can be used to combat this by distinguishing separate parts of any ring or simply accenting curves and halos.

3. It covers your bases

Not sure if your partner prefers gold to silver? Or rose gold to white platinum? Just get both! You can gift your loved one with a unique piece of jewellery and be confident that the piece takes their preference into account!

4. It never goes out of style

This is more than a trend, it’s a timeless choice for any of your jewellery. Two toned jewellery is not only one-of-a-kind and flattering, it is versatile and exciting! A piece in two toned gold is truly a sophisticated keepsake for women and men at any age.
