Gift Buying Guide
Buying the Perfect Present
Girls love jewellery, well most do anyway. A lot of girls are like magpies, attracted to all that’s shiny and sparkly which is why jewellery makes the perfect gift! Whether it’s an occasional gift for Christmas, Valentines or Mothers Day, or just as a romantic gesture or thank you, most girls will love receiving a beautiful piece of jewellery.
So before you make your selection, there a few important things that you might want to take into consideration when buying your perfect gift:
Firstly a few things we need to point out...
In this instance, size is important! So if you are buying a ring as a gift then make sure you know the correct ring size you need before purchasing as we cannot unfortunately refund or exchange an item because it doesn’t fit. If you’re not sure what size to buy that certain someone, try asking a friends advice or if the item is for your girlfriend or wife then try having a look through her jewellery box at other rings they have and use those as a guide. Any jeweller can tell you the size of a ring if you discretely borrowed it for the day! Sometimes you have to be a bit of a detective!
Also if you’re buying necklaces or bracelets again you need to think about the length of the item. The smallest chain we sell is 14 inches, which for the more curvy ladies among us, maybe a little on the tight side. It’s the same with bracelets and anklets too, depending on a person’s size they could be too big or too small so have a think about this before choosing your gift. Ooo just a little note on this too, as some of our jewellery is handmade to order, we can make some of our designs to suit your preference. Just contact us on email@example.com and let us know what you require, our designers can discuss your needs and try their best to accommodate you. The cost of your jewellery may differ slightly if an item has to be made considerably larger or smaller but we’ll keep you informed if this is the case.
Due to hygiene reasons, we cannot refund or exchange products which are meant for piercings (including earrings), unless the item is faulty.
So when buying a gift for someone, think about...
What type of jewellery does the person usually wear - simple? Fussy? Large designs or delicate pieces? And what colour jewellery do they normally wear? silver, gold, gemstones or costume? A lot of these things depend on the type of person they are so again do some detective work and have a look through their jewellery box or ask a friends advice. A good rule of thumb is to try and stick to the kind of thing they normally wear unless you’re confident that they will like your alternative choice.
As they say, sometimes a change is as good as a rest and variety is the spice of life so if you’re brave enough try and give them something different. Don’t hold us to that though!
Moving on, something else to consider is how much do you want to spend? This is especially poignant in today’s economy so don’t splash out too much if it means you’ll be strapped for cash for months to come. Buy something you can afford and something that your loved one will appreciate whatever the occasion.
Finally one other thing to think about is, is the person allergic to any particular types of jewellery? Some people can be allergic to certain metals or can’t wear costume jewellery due to irritation so check in advance if you think this could be a possibility. A lot of our earrings are hypoallergenic which means they don’t contain nickel which certain people can be allergic to. Hypoallergenic jewellery is made up of pure materials like stainless steel and gold, which is unlikely to give any skin allergies.
