Jewellery Gift Guide: What to Buy for Whom

by Administrator | post a comment

Buying jewellery can be difficult if you do not know the likes and dislikes of the person you are buying it for. It is such a personal gift that it pays to know their preference in terms of gold or silver, favourite gemstones or birthstones, and whether they like large, statement pieces or more delicate jewellery.

All styles of jewellery can be bought at reasonable prices on eBay and specialist antique fairs are also a great way to find one-off pieces. To help you decide what to buy for whom, below is a selection of different types of jewellery for ladies, men, teens and children.

Ladiesí jewellery The wealth of jewellery on offer for women means that you will never be short of ideas. The problem arises when you want to narrow down this choice to buy something meaningful for someone special.

Some women prefer silver jewellery to gold, and you can pick up some lovely sterling silver pieces at a reasonable price. Add in a precious or semi-precious gem or birthstone, and you have a memorable gift that will always remind them of you.

The Daily Mail has an interesting article about whether men are still buying jewellery for their partner now that women are generally more financially independent. It turns out that it is still often the man who buys jewellery, rather than women buying it for themselves. Romance is clearly still alive and well!

Buy a set of matching jewellery in the form of necklace, bracelet and earrings in the same design, or one single statement piece that stands out no matter what the outfit. You also need to consider the length of chain if buying a necklace or pendant, but with a huge array of chain sizes and lengths available, you are bound to find something to suit.

Menís jewellery Cufflinks and tie pins are a popular, and relatively safe choice for a man. If you want to be a little bolder, or know that your man is a jewellery fan, you should be able to find a distinctive ring, bracelet or earring that is just right.

Teen jewellery Teenagers often go for something a little different when it comes to jewellery. They want what they wear to be a reflection of their personality, and this is also true of jewellery. Think about their character, and whether they might want to stand out from the crowd. Personalised charm-type bracelets are a popular choice for this age group and these can be added to continually, making gift ideas a doddle!

Childrenís jewellery It is no generalisation to say that most little girls love receiving jewellery as a gift. For babies, popular christening gifts include tiny bracelets and pendants that are designed with both boys and girls in mind.

Traditional pink and blue gemstones are widely available, with silver being a popular choice. Christening bracelets tend to have a sliding adjustment feature that means they can be worn as the child grows up a little.

The Guardian offers some guidance on buying ethical jewellery, and discusses some of the reasons why you might want to buy this type of jewellery. A popular choice for any age group, jewellery makes a thoughtful gift that can be kept and cherished. It may even become an heirloom of the future.
