At fabulous, we (naturally) believe that jewellery is the ultimate gift for her this Christmas. Whether it’s an elegant necklace, or a striking stack of bangles, giving jewellery is the perfect romantic expression. Show your loved one just what they mean to you with a personal and precious gift that can be worn as a reminder of love at all times.
But finding a piece of jewellery that is just right can be tricky, so we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to help you choose that perfect present…
Cheat #1: Sentiment, or sparkle, or both?
What do you want your gift to say to her? Do you want to tell her just how you feel with a personal token of love, or spoil her rotten with something sparkling and beautiful?
Thomas Sabo Love Bridge from £125, Cherish Lockets from £157, Life’s Journey Bangles from £175
If you’re looking for a sentimental keepsake, an engravable collection such as Love Bridge by Thomas Sabo, which can be inscribed with something unique and meaningful, is the ideal gift. Also consider a gift designed to reflect her personality and experiences, such as a bangle by Life’s Journey, or a Cherish locket by Dower & Hall.
Tresor Paris necklaces from £20
If you want to dazzle her with a precious piece of luxe, consider elegant and timeless styles that always shine at Christmas, such as these contemporary designs by Tresor Paris.
Engelsrufer sets from £118, Thomas Sabo Love Coins from £25.95
And there’s no need to compromise when you can have both- choose a gift that’s imbued with meaning and accented with crystal, such as an Engelsrufer locket, or a selection of Love Coins by Thomas Sabo.
Cheat #2: Gold, Rose Gold or Silver?
Nikki Lissoni sets from £86
Probably the most important thing to bear in mind when gifting jewellery is which precious metal she prefers: does she wear gold, rose gold or silver?
If you aren’t sure, think about the jewellery she owns. Also consider her wardrobe: if she prefers cool shades, such as navy and grey, silver is the perfect complementary metal. If she loves warm rusty shades, such as browns, reds and olives, gold is the ideal accent. Rose gold pairs beautifully with chic neutral and pastel shades.
Cheat #3: What’s her style?
Take What You Need 2 bar sets from £81
To choose a gift that screams her, it’s important to make sure it perfectly suits her style. If you’re having trouble pinning down her look, consider her style icons: does she love the all-out glamour of Hollywood starlets? Or does she prefer the classic elegance of Kate Middleton?
When choosing a design or style, also think about whether she loves:
- Colour: if she loves all things bold and and bright, look for designs that incorporate vibrant gems and natural stones.
- Sparkle: if she loves to sparkle, look for crystals and pave.
- Words: does she like to wear designs with words? What words would mean the most to her? What would she like engraved?
To help you out, we’ve created some ready-made sets to suit every style, such as those above by Take What You Need.
