Giving gifts is a tradition as old as humankind itself. We delight in giving our loved ones a beautiful present, and jewellery simply has to be the best present of all. But what jewellery is right for each occasion? Take for example, a heart necklace for Valentine's Day, or how about an eternity ring for a wedding anniversary?

Why is jewellery such a unique gift?

Not only is jewellery a great investment that you can give to someone close to your heart, jewellery also conveys a deeper significance. It bears witness to your love for one another and make an impactful statement.

What is the symbolism behind this unique gift?

Jewellery is the perfect symbolic gift as it is given at particular milestones in someone's life. Take, for example a graduation, engagement, wedding or even a birth; jewellery is given on all these occasions. There will always be a story behind the jewellery that is gifted.

Whether you are looking for a present for a woman or a gift for a man: your gift's deeper meaning will always exceed the nominal value!

Do you consider the emotional value to be more important than the price tag? Have a gold bracelet engraved for your daughter, or have jewellery tailor made. One of the most symbolic bracelets is undoubtedly the gold bracelet worn by the Dutch Queen Maxima with five precious stones in various colours, one for each family member.

Jewellery has powers of persuasion

Being high in value, diamond jewellery often has immense powers of persuasion. You're showing the person close to your heart that you want to invest in them. It shows you love someone deeply and will do anything for them.

Jewellery uniquely expresses your love

Jewellery tells loving stories. For example, the round circle of your wedding ring represents your enduring love for one another. Besides, diamonds are indestructible. By giving diamond jewellery you are saying your relationship is equally indestructible.

Your jewellery doesn't have to be old to be associated with an exceptional story. The story of how the love blossomed between you and your partner; what can beat that? A diamond engagement ring symbolises the bond with your loved one like no other.

But, it's not just the love between two partners that deserves jewellery. Your relationship with your mother, best friend or sister is wonderfully embodied by a Toi et Moi ring. The two precious stones could, for example, be your birth stones, for an extra personal touch.

When is jewellery an appropriate gift?

In days gone by, buying jewellery was more a past-time for the wealthy. They wore jewellery to show off their lineage and affluence. Similarly, for a long time, wearing jewellery was considered more of a feminine thing. Something that has changed drastically in recent decades. Men are equally delighted with a jewellery gift or a watch.
Diamond jewellery is no longer solely a woman's remit
Because buying diamond jewellery has become far more accessible to everyone nowadays, it's a fantastic gift to give on numerous occasions. Take for example, women's jewellery on Valentine's Day, at Christmas or on Mother's Day. Or, spoil your father with a watch on Father's Day . There is always something to choose from the extensive jewellery range, whatever your budget or relationship with the person whom the gift is intended for, By giving jewellery you are demonstrating your love for someone close to your heart, and that will most certainly be appreciated.

When should I start giving my partner jewellery?

You show you love your partner every day, of course. But Valentine's Day requires a special gift. Such as heart shaped diamond jewellery or a pink diamond for an extra touch of romance. Heart shaped earrings are a lovely gift too, one that will always fit the bill.

There is no greater show of your love than on your wedding day of course. In the presence of family and friends you slip a gold ring on each other's fingers as a symbol of your everlasting love. A diamond wedding ring is also a popular, stunning choice.

A ring is a perfect graduation gift. We have heard of the so-called ‘graduation ring’ or ‘class ring’, mainly from American films, but it is a genuine tradition. Usually, the graduation year is crafted into this ring, which is worn by both girls and boys.

Have your jewellery engraved

There's nothing so personal as having jewellery engraved. The possibilities when it comes to engraving men and women's jewellery are considerable. Think, for example, of a ring, bracelet or watch. Anything with a flat surface can be engraved.

Many people opt for a date, such as a date of birth or wedding date, but you could also add your own text, motto or quote. Just as long as it bears special significance to you or the person you are giving it to.

Giving jewellery set with her birthstone

Another option is to have a unique precious stone set into jewellery. Did you know, in fact, that each month is linked to a birthstone, to which holy properties are attributed?

Which new gift-giving traditions have we noticed?

One immediate striking fact is that we mainly give gifts at anticipated times. Many people have those dates they must remember, such as wedding anniversaries, clearly marked on the calendar. Wish lists are used a great deal, to avoid turning up with the 'wrong' present.

Yet during prosperous times we have observed a number of novel, altruistic gift-giving traditions appear. No doubt at some point you have also received a request via Facebook from someone whose birthday it is asking you to donate an amount to a non-profit organisation. In psychology, this is described as the 'helper's high'.

Another new gift-giving tradition that has wended its way across the Pond is a push present. The new father gives a gift to the woman who brought his child into the world as a token of his love for them both. So, it is actually a congratulatory gift for the mother after each childbirth.

Determining the right size

To ensure you don't have to resize your jewellery later, it is important to determine the right size at the outset. This is certainly a must when it comes to rings and bracelets.

One quick way is to measure a ring or bracelet she already wears, or to take it to the jeweller to have it measured. Don't have anything to hand to measure? You could always use a ring sizer.
