Gifting jewellery can take on an array of meanings, from the grandest of gestures to a sweet and simple token of appreciation. If you’re looking to spoil someone special – yourself included – with a gift that is worth more than its weight in gold (or silver), consider a charming charm that conveys both sparkle and sentiment.
The Gift Of: Self-Love
The greatest gift of all really is all-encompassing, and will look and feel different to everyone. For inspiration, look to timeless pieces like Buccellati’s glistening and Renaissance-inspired flower pendants, which can symbolize everything from physical beauty to personal growth. These delicate pieces are fashioned in array of colours or set with brightly hued, semi-precious stones, adding yet another layer of meaning.
The Gift Of: Companionship
To gift a friendship bracelet is one of the most universal childhood memories, but these heartfelt traditions aren't just reserved for little ones. Whether it’s a friend or romantic partner, meaningful keepsakes that hold memories or bind two people together are pieces that can be treasured for a lifetime. We love Marla Aaron’s 14k gold heart-shaped locks punctured by red rubies, and her carabiner-shaped hoops with sapphire-embellished screw-on fastenings, both of which can be added to a range of jewellery styles.
The Gift Of: Empowerment
If you’re looking to give someone a little boost, say it with a sparkly number that serves as an enduring and stylish reminder of you. David Yurman’s diamond sapphire evil eyes will keep the wearer protected by any malevolent glares; John Hardy’s silver Legends Eagle with mounted diamonds transfers the power and protection of the namesake creature, and Marla Aaron’s 14k Starlock pendant will help keep the wearer shining – both literally and figuratively.
