Your Guide to Gifting Jewellery

How to choose a jewell gift without panicking

Giving presents to people we care about can be very fun and very rewarding if we make the right choice and make them happy with it, but it can also be very stressing. So many different options to choose from, such a wide variety of products, prices and materials, and such availability of basically anything you could think of, makes it more difficult to narrow down our search and eventually make our pick. 

Jewellery is often a safe place to go, especially when gifting women, because these are items of value that people eventually have the opportunity to use. They can be flattering and make people look and feel good, so they can be very appreciated. Jewellery is often a good choice for a gift, but it doesn't mean it is easy to pick a jewell for someone, even if we know them well enough. The variety of options is so wide that we can get lost. So here is a guide on gifting jewellery. We will briefly discuss the essentials of purchasing jewellery and what you should bear in mind when choosing the perfect piece to give as a present. 

Giving a jewell doesn't have to be a problem. Just take these pieces of advice and think about what kind of accessory would better fit the person you have in mind and the occassion for which you are making this gift, and things should go just fine.

Jewellery essentials: what to pick

If you want to make your final choice you will have to narrow down your options. Some of them are already narrowed down for you. For example, budget is one of the most common external factors that limit your options. There is no point in spending hours looking for beautiful diamond rings in the Internet, worth thousands and thousands of pounds, if there is no way you can afford one. Think of your budget and how much you can, and would be willing to, spend on the gift you want to make. There are affordable options and special offers that you can look for, but defining your budget will give you some orientation as well as save you from wasting hours considering pieces you will never buy.

Among the jewellery gifting essentials, you need to take on account the person's lifestyle and their personal preferences. For example, if the person you are thinking of is sophisiticated and goes to elegant parties, it will be adequate to give them some fancy pieces with a nicely cut gem or two, but if they are instead middle class suburb moms or dads, then something simpler and more practical for everyday life might be better. 

Also, bear in mind the meaning of materials and symbols used in the jewell you are choosing. One easy way to select a piece is to choose the gemstone that is best for the person. In some cases, physical features are relevant: for example, if you are buying earrings with a coloured gemstone, pick one which has a colour that matches the person's eyes. You can also use the criteria of birthstones and the symbolic meaning of certain gemstones. Some people like to wear jewells with their birthstone, which is defined by their month of birth; or they like stones that are associated with certain values or positive features they identify with. Find yourself a good guide to gemstones and get some inspiration.

Step it up, make it personal

There might be no gift in the entire world that is more meaningful, and therefore more effective, than a personal gift. When you go the extra mile to get something you know the person will like or will have a special meaning, then your gift shines, and you can make the other person happy and make them feel loved as well. Custom made jewellery and bespoke pieces can seem a bit of a complication, and in some regards it is, but the result, if you choose your silversmith wisely, can be extremely effective, both socially and emotionally.

You can also buy an ethnic or exotic piece, by purchasing online traditional pieces of craft from other countries. That will make the piece even more special because it will be rare and hard to find. Just bear in mind that there are some giftware regulations when importing jewellery into the UK, as well as other items that are declared as gifts. Make sure you follow all the steps so as not to find surprise taxes or even have your gift returned to you because it doesn't follow the regulations.
