Jewellery is a failsafe gift idea, IMO. Whether your giftee has pierced ears (teeny gold huggies are always a winner), favours sparkles and glitz (go for a statement party pair), loves to be organised (a smart watch in that case), or has a Boho sense of style (layered necklaces or stacking rings are ideal), there’s something for everyone.
You’d be forgiven for thinking any gift in the jewellery department would set you back hundreds of pounds, but that absolutely doesn’t need to be the case.
As a self-proclaimed gold jewellery aficionado, you can trust me in this area, so I’ve made an edit of the best jewellery pieces to gift, with prices starting from £17.99. Perfect for birthday gifts or for a spot of self-gifting.
Whether you’re in the market for a last-minute gift for a friend or something sweet for a sister, a smaller budget needn’t stop you from finding a fabulous pressie.
If you have a bit more to spend, a wealth of brands are now available to you. Among them are some of my favourites: Seol + Gold are a great British brand that excels at affordable gold-plated pieces that wear well.
If you’re splashing this much, it must mean this is a giftee important to you, so it’s time to pull out all the stops. I’m talking personalised pieces, which is what each of these brands does best.
The best gold hoops
If you already know you’re after a pair of timeless gold hoops as a gift, but aren’t sure where to start, see this as the edit of the best on offer. She’ll be delighted with any of these.
If you’re working to a max spend of £100, may I introduce you to Mejuri, Daphine and Stellar 79? Each has a specialist area that’ll suit any giftee. Head to Mejuri for everyday high-quality staples, to Daphine for glamorous vintage-esque pieces, and then to Stellar 79 for striking styles that’ll guarantee compliments.
For deeper pockets, a new jewellery style comes into the fold: watches. For the woman who’s keen to start her year organised, they’re a winner. Elsewhere, Astrid & Miyu’s bestselling horoscope range will be a hit on a birthday – get it while you can.
