We understand that buying jewellery and accessories can be a difficult task. When it’s for someone you love, it’s important you make the right choice. Jewellery can be very personal, and it can take time and a lot of thought to get something you know that special someone will love. There are some timeless pieces that can appeal to all, which we will be featuring in this post, but for those who want to surprise a special somebody with the ideal piece, we have devised a few pointers for you on where to begin Pay Attention Although not always the case, often somebody’s style will be reflected in their taste in Jewellery. Take note and look out for particular styles they seem to be fond of wearing, or avoiding. This can give you inspiration on the type of product to buy. For example, a husband trying to decide on what kind of earrings to buy his wife notices she only ever wears studs for earrings, it’s probably a safe bet for him to avoid hoops! Accessories don’t have to bold and vibrant, so noticing the small details people add when they dress up will give you a good idea of their style. Interests Personality can also have a large effect jewellery choices. Knowing the ins and outs of an individual’s lifestyle and interests is often an easy way to work out what piece is or isn’t going to work. If your brother is a sporting fanatic, who enjoys dirt biking and running, he will more likely appreciate a watch that isn’t bespoke titanium. Thinking about what the person you’re buying for really enjoys and loves, will provide inspiration as to the theme or style of jewellery that will work for them. Small and more discreet pieces may suit individuals who like to keep a classic and modest style. Bold and thickset items may appeal to somebody who likes to stand out from the crowd. Make it Personal If something contains thought and reasoning, the receiver of your gift is more than likely going to appreciate the piece. This is when knowing their birthstone can provide a great opportunity to allow a piece to be tailored to them and to contain a personal meaning. Pieces containing birthstones are a popular choice for birthdays as well as significant occasions such as Christmas. For a sentimental someone, this sort of concept is likely to be loved. Consider Symbolism If you know somebody well enough, create a similar thoughtful piece through engraving and choosing elements that you know are favourited by the person, or include concepts that symbolise them. Jewellery can be used to say a thousand words and celebrate all different forms of love. From a bracelet for a mother with her daughter’s initials on, to a dog tag pendant for a military boyfriend, there are a number of ways you can show someone you care through symbol jewellery.
