If you don’t want to get just any old thing for one of the women in your life this August, whether you are searching for a gift for your sister, your mother, your wife or your girlfriend, or even just a friend, then check out our range of birthday gift ideas for women this August, and breathe a little easier!
You haven’t done too badly in your search for the perfect female present so far – you have managed to get as far as jewelry, having passed over the appliances and turned your back on the clothing! Where an appliance will make her feel tied to the kitchen or bathroom, and clothing is a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, jewelry is a universal in the female world, and it is one of those things you can never have too much of. For some handy hints and insights into her personality for finding the perfect present, you don’t need to look much farther than her starsign. If she is a Leo, born between the 1st and 22nd of August, she is likely to be a feisty, outgoing character, full of creative energy and generosity. Those born after the 22nd are Virgos – much more detail-oriented, methodical, intelligent and discreet.
If you have a Leo lady to buy for, you have probably already noticed the amber earrings at the beginning of the article – colorful and unusual, they have a rich, warm and outgoing aura, just like your female friend! There is an amber ring to go with them just above, featuring an extra large piece of Baltic amber (2cm x 1cm, an outstanding size), which is set in sterling silver to highlight the depths of color. The earrings are very budget-friendly, at only AU$99, while the ring is a good mid-range buy, at AU$275.
If amber is not your Leo friend’s cup of tea, there is plenty of color, creativity and individuality in pearl jewelry. Pearls are available in just about every color under the sun, and these red ones are especially well matched with the red rhodolite stones. There are tiny gorgeous diamonds inset into the gold attachment also, for sparkle and zest. These earrings are in stock, so if you have left it to the last minute to buy a gift this August, these have a better chance of arriving on time (in their complimentary gift wrapping!).
Topazes are another bright and colorful stone, great for Leos – these 5mm square cut topaz earrings are set on yellow gold,. and the square cut is a subtle, but striking difference upon contemplation. If you are looking for a smaller gift, just for a friend, or to go with a different present for a family member, these earrings are sure to be treasured.
Virgo women are quite often discreet and modest – they like their jewelry to be understated and subtle. This Pandora smokey quartz and heart lemon quartz necklace is a good way to introduce some subtle color into her jewlery box. It is made with both oxidized sterling silver (the oxidation gives the silver that distinctive dark Pandora look) and 14ct yellow gold, for subtle color. There are matching rings and Pandora beads available for charm bracelets, and also the earrings pictured below, which feature the same gorgeous stones and the same gorgeous design. Your Virgo lady will love having matched pieces in her jewelry box, to appeal to her sense of order and method!
For many Virgos, discretion is the better part of valor … and these princess cut diamond huggie earrings are both gorgeous, stylish and very discreet. Their clear-white sparkle along with the rich yellow gold background makes for a very classy piece. The huggie earring is gaining in popularity, as more women realize how easy and cozy they are to wear. They feature a total of fourteen diamonds, and you can layby this item if you have fallen in love, but don’t currently have the funds.
This beautiful opal and diamond necklace will be a favorite in the jewelry box of whatever Virgo it lives in for many a year to come, with its delicate, precise shaping and discreet but sparkling coloration. It is a luxury item featuring eight natural solid opals, set on yellow gold … and it will just make her go ‘Mmmmmmm … !’
