It is this time of the year again when streets and homes start filling with festive music, Christmas decorations and cheerful spirits. Christmas period, like no other, opens our hearts for the kindness and thoughtful surprises, once again proving to be the most waited and emotive season of the year. The beginning of December is when each one of us start thinking about Christmas presents. There are people who prepare months in advance, but you and I are probably not one of them. All-in Christmas shopping glamour can be quite stressful, so what should you know to get a present that won’t disappoint. Let’s have a look of what to consider when buying a fabulous jewellery and what to avoid.
The aesthetics of jewellery and their variety are worth attention, although the rules of choosing the best options remain the same. A few important factors to consider when buying jewellery as a gift is timelessness and quality. When choosing the finest options of jewels, these are the main key aspects everyone should look at. Although, alternative materials like resin, plastic, wood or fabric might sound interesting and trendy, they are not long lasting and tend to quickly lose their value. The expression ‘Golden Girl’ describes it well what to look out for when choosing a long-lasting jewellery gift. Precious metals, such as Gold and Platinum, are number one investments that prove their longevity and value. The hardness in withstanding wear, beauty of colour and preciousness are the main key aspects precious metals provide. If you prefer a white metal – choose Platinum. White Gold tends to lose its colour and needs to be replated from time to time. If, on the other hand, you prefer yellow than Yellow Gold will be your ultimate option. For the everyday jewellery, 18K Gold will be the best, as 24K Gold is softer and easier to scratch, and 9K has less Gold particles.
Design that always wins is forever classic and elegant. The key is to get the kind of jewellery your other half will never want to take off. Comfortable and versatile, but also timeless to wear for many more years. An expert eye can easily spot a good and worthy jewellery but for less experienced, look out for simple colour and shape combinations. Classic colour combination, such as white-with-black, white-with-white, gold-with-white and gold-with-black will prove to be a good choice, as it easily matches with anything. A touch of Gold is traditional and adored by women of all age groups. It brings back the importance of timeless beauty and value. On the other hand, Diamonds have always been seen as a factor of wealth, power and luxury, and should also be considered as a good choice in jewellery gifting. Pearls are another classic option you can’t go wrong with, but they require much more care and can’t be treated the same way as the other gemstones. The comforting charm of jewellery is knowing where your item came from and who made it. If you are choosing a famous jewellery brand to purchase from, make sure to check where your product was manufactured. Bigger or more famous names don’t always mean a better quality, and local jewellers proved to set the standard of quality jewellery pretty high, making pieces based on fair and ethical practices.
Being the most direct way to connect with your significant other, jewellery can not only steal a heart, but also provide a timeless joy and memories that could, as well, be passed down to generations. There is no doubt that a thoughtful present like a unique jewel will put a smile on your loved one’s face. After all, jewellery is one of the most favourite gifts that combine both the expression of love and functionality.
