Jewellery is always one of my favourite go too’s at Christmas for gifting.  Seriously who doesn’t love jewellery!  Of course it helps to know the style that your intended recipient would love as there is no point giving them something that they don’t like.  I always put a good degree of thought into the gifts I buy for others.

What Do You Need To Consider When Buying Jewellery As A Gift

Metal or costume jewellery?

Make sure you know if your gift is going to someone that is allergic to certain metals.  Personally I prefer gifting silver, yellow gold or rose gold as you can’t really go wrong with them and they make far nicer gifts.

Which colour metal should you gift?

It pays to be observant.  You’re hardly going to go and gift someone that never wears yellow gold that colour unless they have expressed a desire to own something in that colour that is.

What To Choose?

Rings, bracelets, ankle chains or necklaces? What does the recipient like wearing?  Be observant when you go and see them next.  Some people never wear rings, others only wear necklaces, if you put a little thought into it you will find the perfect gift that they will enjoy wearing.

Size

Personally I love delicate, dainty jewellery.  Giving me something that is excessively large and screams look at me won’t work as I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing it.

Price

Naturally you need to decide on your budget before you start looking for the right gift.  I tend to open a site and take a look through opening up numerous pages of options as I go before whittling them down.

Everyday Piece Or One For Special Occasions?

If it’s a special birthday, anniversary or wedding you are buying for you might be looking to splash out a little.  Think about a more expensive metal or even something with stones.

Selection Process

I am looking to get something pretty for someone close (I can’t say who as they might be reading this).  They love to wear silver and they are always wearing a necklace when I see them.  My options include the following from Nude Jewellery:

Blue Topaz Silver Flower Pendant

 

This pretty handmade piece is not only stunning it also has a lovely blue topaz in its centre that makes it even more irresistible.  A lot of detail goes into each piece to ensure the finish is just right.  This piece has a life-like appearance down to the polished edges to replicate the delicate touch of a real flower.  It’s the sort of piece that can be worn daily and brings with it a delicate feminine charm.

Vanilla Links Triple Link Silver Necklace

 


 This pretty silver necklace on a snake chain has three silver circles of varying sizes that have been hammered gently giving them a a pretty textured effect which reflects the light nicely to catch the eye.  Another piece that can easily be worn daily and is bound to look great on.

Silver Splat Pendant

The small silver splat shaped pendant with chain looks like a fun piece and is dainty and delicate so fits my criteria well.  Another easy to wear piece that looks pretty this great sterling silver pendant has been created by award winning jewellery designer Lucy Q!  It’s great isn’t it!  (I also found splat shaped earrings on the site).

Silver Start Flower Pendant

This super cute shiny sterling silver flower has been handmade.  It’s design it delicate and detailed and beautiful.  I know a few people that would love this.

Glitter Ball Disk Necklace

Now you have seen the options the question is, which did I choose?
My package arrived in a pretty silver box tied with a bow.  Within was a jewellery box wrapped in white paper.  The necklace was nestled below a piece of thin sponge helping to protect the exquisite piece that was hidden below.
Did you guess correctly?
It looks gorgeous does it!  The piece is lovely and dainty and is a piece that can be worn daily or on special occasions.
There is a claw clasp is perfect to help keep the necklace secure and it is pretty strong for the sizing so isn’t likely to break easily.
The piece is well made and the link sizes are approximately 15, 11 and 8mm making this a dainty yet eye catching piece.  The snake chain is  a good length at 16″.
