Christmas is upon us, so thoughts on what gift to get your well-deserving mother, daughter, sister, special friend or love of your life, will likely be front of mind. They say that all great things come in small packages, so what better place to start than with a beautiful piece of jewellery.
Though seasons and trends come and go, jewellery remains sentimental forever and is attached to precious memories, so let’s help you make some more this Christmas! Giving such a special gift requires careful consideration, which is why we’ve put together a Christmas gift guide for
her; to help you find the perfect, everlasting jewellery piece.
What’s her style?
When it comes to selecting the right piece of jewellery for someone special, there are few things to think about. If you want to get her something to wear every day, then it’s worth subtly observing what types of jewellery she tends to wear. For example, does she wear rings daily, or perhaps a bracelet, regardless of the occasion? If it’s easy for you to do, take a quick look at her jewellery collection too. By doing this, you’ll be able to understand what styles, gemstones and metal colours she gravitates to the most.
Of course, you might be looking for a showstopping gift that can be worn for a particular special occasion. In which case, you won’t need to focus so much on her everyday style, but more on her preferences when it comes to that all-important dressing up! Again, this will likely be in keeping with her other metal and gemstone choices, though you’ll be looking for something with a bit more of a statement.
Choosing the precious metal and gemstones
That said, deciding on a precious metal type is the next important step in this decision-making process. Yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold are all beautiful options in fine jewellery, and while most women would fall in love with any of these, others like to stick to one particular colour. This is something you may discover after some clever detective work.
If you’re thinking about getting her a piece of gemstone jewellery you’ll need to consider which gemstone she’d like. Do you know her favourite colour, or have a palette of colours in mind that reminds you of her? You might even like to choose a piece that features her birthstone, or perhaps she’d appreciate a gemstone with a particular meaning. Now you can decide what jewellery gift is the right one for her.
For anyone with pierced ears, earrings are a wonderful gift that can be worn as a daily staple, or dressed up for special occasions. There are many styles to choose from, including simple studs, elegant drops, classic hoops or statement earrings.
Our diamond and white cascade chain earrings from the Radiance Collection, will make a beautifully sparkling statement, and certainly a lasting impression. Crafted from 9ct white gold, each earring’s flowing chains of brilliant diamonds are held up spectacularly by a single pear-shaped stud. This is a stunning pick for such a festive occasion, and she’ll want to put them straight on to celebrate the rest of the day.

For a more understated look, studs are a good way to go, as these can be worn more casually, and are a great way to add a touch of sparkle to her every day. This pair of gorgeous morganite and diamond earrings from the Gemstone Collection is beautifully crafted with 18ct rose gold. Surrounded by bright sparkling diamonds and taking place centre stage in each earring is a large brilliant-cut morganite, symbolising harmony, romance and love with its blushing feminine pink hue.

If you’re leaning towards getting her a necklace, you can opt for something delicate and sleek, or a statement piece. Also, bear in mind the length of the chain she’ll need. The most popular lengths are 16” and 18”, however, she may prefer the style of longer necklaces of 20” to 22” which sits below the bust. If you want to go for something a little more personal or you know she’ll appreciate the symbolism, take a look at the Gemstone and Rainbow Collections to find a gemstone pendant with a beautiful meaning or connection to her birthstone. A beautiful example of a gemstone necklace is our rose cut sapphire and diamond piece, that’s crafted in 18ct white gold. This necklace features a rose-cut blue sapphire and is surrounded by a halo of bright sparkling diamonds. It’s perfect for someone with a September birthday or who appreciates that loyalty and wisdom that the sapphire brings.

A ring makes a beautiful gift, though if you’re buying one for your girlfriend and you’re not proposing just yet, consider gifting it in a way that’s clear. When buying a ring, you’ll need to know her ring size, and sometimes this can be tricky. The quickest and easiest way to figure this out is to use our ring size guide or bring one of her rings in store for us to measure.
