Jewellery Ideas for Christmas

Like all other Christmas gifts, picking the right jewellery will require a little forward thinking. You may need to know a little more about the person you are gifting so as to pick the perfect piece. A good place to start is to study her. For example, does she wear hoop, drop or stud earrings? Are her jewelry made of gold, silver, titanium or what metal? What gemstone does she like most? Does she like big and bold or fine, delicate, simple and elegant? Does he like bold statement watches or simple but elegant pieces? Well, you will be surprised at what a little study will reveal.

Some Tips for Picking the Perfect Christmas Jewellery

Once you know the basics, it is time to consider sizing. If buying a chain or necklace, what is the appropriate length? Most consider the 18” chain; however, pick what your recipient will like.

If you are planning on buying a ring, it is advisable to know the approximate size of the finger which you wish to adorn. It is also important to know the size of the finger on which the ring will be worn. It is common to see guys buy thumb rings in approximation to the size of an engagement ring; bad idea!

As such, it is important to know how real metals and real gemstones and diamonds look like (and the simple tests carried out to prove authenticity).

Whenever you buy any jewellery, make sure you are given a presentation box.

There are other stores that make hand crafted jewellery, and their presentation includes a note that conveys that message so the recipient knows it unique.
