With Christmas just around the corner, shopping season is deeply underway. While holiday shopping can be enjoyable, it can become stressful if you’re unsure of what to get. For many of us, the best part of Christmas is seeing our loved ones light up as they open our gift. However, planning the perfect gift can seem impossible with Christmas less than 1 week away. Thankfully, there’s still time. For hundreds of years, people have been surprising their loved ones with the gift of jewellery. Available in a range of shapes and sizes, there is something to suit people of all sorts. In this article, we explore why should give jewellery as a gift this Christmas.
Almost anything can make a great gift. Any item that is wanted, needed or will make your loved one happy will be appreciated. However, it’s no secret that some gifts are more meaningful than others. While items such as clothing, footwear and household supplies are practical, they are not very sentimental. Jewellery, on the other hand, can be incredibly meaningful. In some cases, this is because the jewellery represents a monumental event in someone’s life such as a graduation, engagement, or wedding. Even if you’re not buying jewellery for this purpose, the fact that you hand-picked the gift will make it meaningful. With this in mind, jewellery is not just eye-catching and useful, it’s also a sentimental gift.
If you look after it, jewellery can last for years. When you gift jewellery to a loved one, that piece will always remind them of you. If you’re ever apart, the keepsake can help you to feel close to one another until you reunite.
The right piece of jewellery can be timeless. If you’re buying an expensive piece, it’s worth thinking about this before making your decision. This way, your loved one can wear the piece for years to come and remain on-trend. Typically, any minimal piece of jewellery is considered timeless. If you’re hoping for it to last, go for a gold or silver coloured piece as these colours don’t tend to date. Although copper is currently all the rage, it’s unlikely to be popular ten years from now. However, you can be certain that gold or silver will still look great. Gemstone jewellery is another timeless option; there is no question that a glamorous diamond necklace will still be on-trend 30 years into the future.
Investing in a good-quality piece of jewellery will ensure it lasts for years to come. If your loved one has luxurious taste, there is no better gift than an expensive piece of jewellery. As well as making them feel like royalty, high-end jewellery is long-lasting and durable. When it comes to gemstone jewellery, the bigger the budget, the better the stone. In addition to their perfect appearance, good-quality gemstones are better for lithotherapy. Also known as crystal healing, lithotherapy combines gemstones and chromotherapy to heal the body and mind. As each stone emits a vibration and energy, this type of jewellery transfers that energy into the body. The effect of that depends on the variety and size of the stone. In most cases, bigger stones are more effective than smaller ones. This is because a larger stone will emit bigger vibrations. With this in mind, it’s worth spending a little extra money on lithotherapy jewellery for best results.
There is nothing better than a personalised gift. Thankfully, almost any piece of jewellery can be personalised – as long as there is enough space. Whether you want to engrave a name, message, or special date, a professional jeweller can bring the text to life. Personalised jewellery is the perfect way to remember a special occasion. If it’s your first Christmas as husband and wife or your first one in a new home, gift your loved one a personalised piece of jewellery. If you’re hoping to feature a name or date, rings and pendants are ideal. However, a bracelet may suit you better if you want to engrave a message. As they have a large surface area, a short message will fit comfortably on a bangle.
With jewellery, there is something to suit all budgets. Whether you’re buying a token gift for a secret Santa or splashing out on a luxury engagement ring, you can find jewellery to suit your budget. If you’re hoping to spend less, opt for costume jewellery. Available in a variety of colours and sizes, costume jewellery is a great alternative to the real deal. However, some pieces are definitely better than others. To ensure that your piece looks great, consider shopping in-store or using a website that offers free returns. This way, you can be sure that you’re completely happy with your jewellery before gifting it.
Available in a variety of styles, there is something to suit every preference. If your loved one enjoys a night out on the town, a bold statement necklace may be ideal. If you’re buying for someone with a minimal style, opt for an elegant diamond necklace, instead. If you don’t want to splash out on the real deal, consider going for a diamond replacement. Similar in appearance, Cubic Zirconia is a great option for those with a smaller budget. If your loved one has an ongoing health ailment, surprise them with a lithotherapy bracelet. In addition to looking great, this beaded bracelet will provide the gift of good health.
If you’re still searching for that perfect gift, why not go for a meaningful piece of jewellery? If you’re spending a lot of money, consider getting the piece insured with a reputable insurer. This way, your loved one can rest easy knowing the gift can be repaired or replaced if necessary.
