Eye-catching jewellery that can be a great gift to your fiancée
Thinking of getting your fiancée a gorgeous gift? Jewellery is a fantastic choice – but it can be tricky to get the perfect piece. You want something eye-catching without being tacky, interesting without being overwhelming – so where to start?
Depending on your fiancée’s personality, there are a few possible styles you could go for here – big and bold, or small and subtle. Statement necklaces have been on trend for some time now, and there’s a few ways to do it. We’re huge fans of simple chains with a attention grabbing pendant – a big gemstone pendant, or something more detailed can work for this. Alternatively, you could get a chunky choker, or a heavily beaded necklace chain. Check out interesting materials too – why not go for something made of fabric rather than the usual metals.
If it’s small and simple you want, try and think classy. You want to go for the more upmarket materials here – costume jewellery is fantastic for statement pieces, but for something smaller it can be more obviously fake. Instead, go for fine chains made of silver or other such materials, with either small details or pendants for emphasis.
If you’re thinking of getting your fiancée earrings, the first thing to do is to check they have their ears pierced! You’d be surprised how many people forget this important step. Secondly, think about what style of earrings they prefer – do think often wear long, dangling ones or are they more a fan of studs. No matter how nice the earrings you buy are, if they’re the wrong style they’ll almost certainly never get worn. If in doubt, take a look through old photos – which style does she prefer, and how frequently do they get worn?
If your fiancée is the sort to take risks with fashion, take a look into the current ear cuff trend. These are big, bold statement pieces – designed to imitate the effect of having multiple piercings without having to actually get those piercings. These are also often designed to be asymmetrical, so work especially well on people who have asymmetric haircuts.
Getting a ring for a partner can be risky, but if you’re already engaged it’s much easier! There’s no pressure that they might misinterpret it since you’ve already proposed. Plus, you should (if you’ve got a good memory) already know their ring size, making it easy to surprise them.
We particularly recommend signet rings as a great gift – they’re easy to customise in a variety of styles, and therefore can be a very romantic gift. Whether it’s creating a custom monogram, engraving some special date or secret phrase, a signet ring can easily become a token of your love – and one that she can treasure forever.
If a signet ring seems a little too big and chunky, stacking rings are the perfect alternative. These thin rings can be worn singularly or in groups to created a more noticeable effect. They usually come in a mix of thicknesses, textures and styles. We recommend getting some with a good combination of plain rings and those with more detailing – perhaps a gemstone or two, or an interesting shape.
Another option is to go for a bracelet. This can be one of the trickier options due to sizing, but if you can get hold of another piece of jewellery she owns for reference, that’s easy to solve. As with the other suggestions on this, you’ll want to make sure to take a close look at what sort of jewelry your fiancée usually wears, and go with something that fits. It’s okay to go for something a bit different to the usual, but try not to take too many steps away – there’s new and different, and then there’s just unwanted. With something bigger like this, we always recommend going with something small and classy – much more likely to suit!
Whatever you go for, make sure you’ve thought it through – jewellery is incredibly personal, and you definitely don’t want to invest in something that they won’t like. For once, it’s best to play safe. It can be tempting to try and get something eye-catching and statement-making, and if you know your fiancée is interested in this then please do – but otherwise, better go with something you know they’ll like!
