Jewellery Gifts Ideas

Buying jewellery for someone special is all about choosing a tasteful quality piece no matter what price you’re paying for it. It’s not because you paid a few thousand for a gold bracelet that the person will like it more than if you would have chosen a tasteful but cheaper silver bracelet. I’ve tried to put a few suggestions below, mostly for women, but be careful as it is highly possible that the suggestions will not satisfy everyone’s tastes.

One major recommendation for men: if you don’t plan on asking your loved one to marry you, you might want to avoid buying her a ring.

Essentials

Ice.com Pearls

7.5-8mm Culture Pearl 14K Gold Earrings, $60 at Ice.com, Buy it Now

This is what I got for Christmas last year and I love them. This is a classic and I think that every women should have a pair of real pearls in her jewelry box. Prices for cultured pearls depending of their quality and vary a lot, so you might want to read more about pearl quality and the different types before choosing a pair.

Diamond Solitaire Necklace

Premium Quality Princess Cut Diamond Solitaire Pendant 1/10 Carat (ctw) in 14K White Gold with Chain (SI1), $199.00 at Myjewelrybox.com, Buy it Now

Here’s another classic that I think should please any woman. A woman’s first diamond is really important, so you might want to get her the first one if she doesn’t have one yet because ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ after all.

Designers

Dannijo Bracelet

Dannijo Jacinda Cuff Gold-Plated 14kt, $487.00 at Charmandchain.com, Buy it Now

If your girlfriend or loved one appreciates ‘out of the ordinary’ jewelry, then Charm and Chain is the perfect online store as they have all of the latest and most popular jewelry designers. Before choosing a piece, pay close attention to the jewelry that she already owns so that you have a better idea of what she likes. If she’s doesn’t wear gold, that’s probably because she doesn’t like it ;)

Gorjana Feather Necklace

Gorjana Feather Necklace Gold-plated 18kt, $60.00 at Charmandchain.com, Buy it Now

I like this necklace as it’s different from what we normally see but at the same time it’s quite classic. I’m sure that alot of young people would also appreciate this piece of jewelry.

Watches

Men's Citizen Watch

Men’s Citizen Eco-Drive™ Perpetual Calendar Watch with Round Black Dial (Model: AT4008-51E), $625 at Peoplesjewellers.com, Buy it Now

I didn’t pick the cheapest watch but this is one of my favorite models from Citizen. Don’t stress though as you can find a nice watch for less than $300 and watches generally make a good gift either for men or women. I also think that having a personal message engraved at the back of it is always a nice (and relatively cheap) way to personalize your gift.

Tips to Buy Jewellery Online

One of the most important things when buying jewellery online is to buy it from a trusted site. You don’t want to end up with cheap jewellery that you paid twice what it was worth or worse, not receiving it at all. So here’s a list of the biggest jewellery stores in Canada, you can all find the latest promotions for these stores on our site.

Top jewellery stores:

Before buying jewellery online or at your local retailer, I highly recommend that you get more familiar with the measure of quality of gold, diamonds or any other products you might be interested in. This is common sense, as we would probably do some research before buying a TV or a MP3 player for example. It is even more important when it comes to jewelry as it all looks relitively the same so we can easily end up paying a lot more than what it’s worth.

Play close attention to the stores return policy and guarantees before ordering the products as you might have to send them back. If you order from a store located in the US, you will probably need to pay for shipping, handling and duty fees when shipping the product back. If buying diamonds, you probably want to make sure that it comes with a certificate of authenticity.
