Make it Personal: Gift Guide

If there’s one gifting trend we unanimously love at fabulous, it’s personalisation! A simple personal engraving can transform a piece of jewellery by adding irreplaceable sentiment to any precious gift. The inscription of a pet-name on a necklace or bracelet ensures that it will become a treasured romantic keepsake. When buying gifts for a group, a personal flourish such as an initial or date will make sure that every recipient feels individually cherished. If a loved one is going travelling or moving away, engraving their name on a necklace will reassure them that they will always be near to your heart, wherever they are in the world.
