I don’t know how many times in primary school I heard the boys say, “She’s not my girlfriend! She’s just a girl who’s a friend!”. Well, no doubt you’ve come a long way since then, and have stopped calling the girls that make you feel a bit gooey inside “just girls who are friends” . In fact, you probably even relish the fact that you can make them feel all gooey inside too … especially on occasions like their birthday. Today we’re looking at the gifts with the best goo-factor for girlfriends born in September.
Two types of girls are born in September, both similar both very unique. Virgo girls, who are usually quite neat and orderly, somewhat reserved and strive for excellencei n everything they do, are born from the 1st to the 22nd. Libra takes uo the rest of the month – these girls will also settle for nothing less than the best (from which you can take heart!), but traditionally their defining personality features are a search for balance and a love of grace and harmony … as well as being absolute social animals! One of Virgo’s traits is slickness and a smooth appearance and personality – so it makes sense that the signature metal for their sign is mercury. Obviously we wouldn’t include it directly in jewelry (!), but the Hot Diamonds Go With The Flow range definitely brings the smooth flow and almost liquid look to their pieces – which is why we love the ‘Entwined’ heart bangle at the beginning of the article for Virgos. Not to mention the fact that it is just so romantic! The bracelet is made of sterling silver and features two brilliant cut white diamonds in each of the hearts (because they are forever, you know!). The sterling silver is rhodium plated, so even if she has had an oxidation reaction in the past, this one should be safe for her. The rhodium is similar to platinum, both improving shine and enhancing tarnish resistance.
If your Virgo girl leans towards the reserved end of the scale, and doesn’t even like to wear her heart under her sleeve (let alone on it!), try something with equal slickness, but not so much mushiness, like the ribbon style earrings from Hot Diamonds pictured at right. These also have gorgeous, genuine white diamonds placed in each of the ribbon’s long ends – there are two in total. The sterling silver of these is rhodium plated also – and the price is perfect for either those who have just met, or if you are looking for a smaller addition to a larger gift.
While Virgo’s signature metal is mercury, Libra’s is a vibrant copper. These copper pearl earrings combine that lucky metal with a passion for excellence, with their 14ct gold base rather than sterling silver backing to the copper pearls. Not just Libra girls, but all women love the flexibility of Pandora’s new mix n’ match earrings – you can choose a set or two of hook-style earrings, and then thread one of an amazing selection of earring ‘pendants’ on to them. These are one of the higher quality pairs of Pandora mix n’ match earrings, and are still quite reasonably priced.
While there is little jewelry actually made from pure copper anymore (women tend to get fed up with their skin turning green!), copper is the alloy used to give rose gold it’s beautiful rich, warm color. And rose gold certainly won’t have any effect on your girlfriend’s skin tone. This titanium and rose gold ring brings strength and romance together – we love this as a birthday gift for couples that have been together a while and weathered a few storms. Titanium is one of the strongest metals known to man – and as you know, every disagreement brings your personal bond one step closer to being the same! The ring is a slim, unisex 6mm wide, and has natural titanium colored ribbed edges bordering the rose gold center, both with a beautiful polished finish. However, the ring also has quite a few personalization options – you can choose to include up to three different gemstones, in whatever setting you desire, as well as engraving a personal message and choosing whether to give the band a bit of satin. Why not get two slightly different, yet matching versions … one for each of you?
Living with a Virgo girl, you can understand why the signature color for their sign is blue. She’s cool and calm, and as deep as the ocean. Topaz jewelry is a gorgeous, quality, yet affordable way to celebrate that ‘blue’ personality. We chose the sky blue topaz dangle earrings for Virgo girls, for their graceful, neat and chic appearance. The topazes are surprisingly large – there are four stones in total, each measuring around 4mm x 8mm. The base is a 9ct white gold (nickel free), which is suitable for all skin types. Don’t forget your little birthday gift, which you’ll see underneath the product … free shipping for these earrings anywhere in the world!
The feminine, fun, bright personality of pink jewelry is a great match for the Libran personality – pink is the signature color for their sign also. We’ve picked one of the best quality pink gemstones for your Libran girlfriend, who loves to be in possession of the best! The pink tourmaline and pearl necklace at right is set on high quality, 14ct white gold. At 42cm, it is also sized perfectly to be shown off at parties, pubs and clubs, sitting nice and high around the throat. The tourmalines measure 3mm and 5mm respectively, while the two cultured pearls measure 10mm and 3.5mm. Remember that the gems are actually set into the necklace, so there is no need to buy an additional chain, and the product itself ships for free all across Australia – so what you see on the price tag is exactly what you get.
Virgo girls are neat, tidy, orderly, and very punctual – but it is also the technical precision and amazing intricacy of a watch that attracts the Virgo female. Nobody does this technical precision better than Citizen, which is why we’ve chosen the silver Alexa Chronograph watch at right for Virgo girls this September. The circumference of the face is set with 28 sparkling diamonds, each carefully cut, graded and polished to perfection, and then set by hand. Even the additional dials on the face are set out in a gorgeous, orderly and symmetrical way. The watch features Citizen’s signature Eco-Drive technology, which means that she won’t have to change a watch battery in her life (as long as it gets a little light every few months!).
Citizen also has something for the Libran lasses out there – the slim, graceful balance of this crystal set watch, as well as the signature pink dial, are perfect matches for the Libran personality. The dial is a lovely subtle mother-of-pearl style pink, and the edges are set with crystals. The bracelet itself is made of gold-tone stainless steel. While the overall impression of the watch is of a gold-and-diamond, mother of pearl dial luxury piece, this watch is actually less than AU$200 currently! It comes with Citizen’s standard 3 year manufacturer warranty, which backs all of their top-quality products.
There is so much choice and diversity for September-born girls, with their love of the luxurious and their leaning towards the lofty!
