How To Buy Jewellery As a Gift

Jewellery has always been a beautiful gift to give. It marks special occasions and milestones and has been passed down through families for generations. So what makes buying jewellery so hard? We’ve come up with 5 important things to consider when buying jewellery as a gift.

1. Think About Who You Are Buying For

The most important thing to consider when you are buying jewellery for your mother, sister or best friend is - what do they like? Sometimes it can be hard to separate what we love from what we think others will love. Some questions to ask yourself are - does she wear a lot of jewellery? Is the jewellery she wears sentimental or trendy? Does she have timeless staples she wears constantly or does she only wear jewellery on special occasions?

2. Make It Personal

Nothing says, I thought about this present more than something personalised. Personalised jewellery says, I know you, I love you and I see you. Maybe you're buying for a woman who is strong and independent? An Athena Necklace shows you have thought about who she is as a person. Maybe you want to honour her individuality with a zodiac necklace or some constellation earrings that represent her birth month.

3. Do Your Research

We have an incredible tool these days that people have never had in the past - it’s called Instagram! Do a little stalk, check out their feed. Do they wear gold or silver? Do they have their ears pierced - you can gleen all this essential info from a well lit selfie. Do they wear gold huggie earrings? Do they love hoop earrings?
Do they love to wear layered necklaces? Have a scroll and see what they like.

4. Timelessness

If you’re buying a gift for someone who doesn’t wear a lot of jewellery, but loves jewellery nonetheless, go for something timeless. A simple gold necklace, a pair of pearl earrings they can wear on special occasions or a pair of gold huggies they can wear everyday.

5. Price Point

Jewellery can be a little tricky when it comes to price points. Think about who you’re buying for and what you're buying. If your gift is commemorating a milestone maybe you want to buy something of great quality that will last for years to come. If you’re buying a statement piece that is on trend right now, maybe look at a lower price point -  as fashion cycles come and go.
Always make sure the jewellery you’re buying is made from quality metals like 925 Stirling silver, as it won’t irritate the skin like fast fashion jewellery which are often made with metals that tarnish, like zinc and copper.
