For making somebody feel special, you really can’t go past buying a gift that is personalized, just for them. Do you remember those custom-printed books that you can have made up with your child’s name as the protagonist in the story … and how excited you felt to be in a book with your favorite characters? Well, there are just as beautiful and fitting options now that you’ve grown up, believe it or not! There is actually a huge range of personalizable jewelry, including some old favorites, some new favorites, and some choices for both men and women … we go through some of the best for April birthdays.
If you are searching for a gift for an April birthday, you will be looking to please either a fiery Arian, freedom loving, passionate and individualistic, or a devoted, sensual, earthy and solid Taurean. Men and women born from the 1st to the 19th of April are born under Aries, while Taurus rules from the 20th onwards. The loose diamonds pictured at the start are the perfect beginning to a personalized Arian gift. If you wanted, you could certainly present these beautiful stones just as they are, and let your willful, determined, individualistic Arian decide what to do with them (this might be the best idea, after all!).
Taureans, on the other hand, whether they are male or female, love anything that expresses love, devotion, and sensuality. And what could do that better than your own words?! We’re not telling you to go off and write poetry for a birthday gift instead – you can still get some sleek, classical jewelry for him or her! However, there is quite a range of engravable jewelry at Gilletts, including pendants, bracelets, and rings. The Inori black accent bangle at right is a great choice for Taurean women. Simple, solid, nothing too ‘frilly’, you also have space to write your own message of love inside the band of this one. The engraving will match the engraved patterns outside the band. The bangle itself is stainless steel, solid and hard wearing.
For male Taureans, you’ll have room to write an absolute essay of love inside the band of this Hot Diamonds silver bangle! It has an extra wide 19mm band, made of solid sterling silver and featuring a brilliant cut white diamond bezel set into the exterior. Taurean guys will love the heavy earthiness of the bangle, and best of all, you have plenty of options for matching jewelry to complement it. Check out the rest of the Hot Diamonds range, where you’ll find neatly matching pieces like the square, solid and simple Hot Diamonds pendant below the bangle, which is also engravable. If the bracelet doesn’t offer enough room for you to tell him how you feel about him, there are always other options!
But perhaps the engravable gifts with the most intriguing options are the titanium rings that we have on site. The double lunar one pictured at right, as well as the blue diamond ring below it, come from our ready-made range. Most of the ready-made range have quite a few personalization options that come along with them, like band width, rounding, titanium color, addition of gemstones, and of course, ring size. There are some special sorts of designs in this area, and both Arian and Taurean guys will appreciate them – the solidity and strength of titanium appeals to both, while Arians love the individuality of the rings, and Taureans will melt over the special messages you’ll engrave inside the band .
But we also have a section where you can design your own titanium ring. You can start from scratch, adding bands of different color titanium (from blue, purple, iridescent, natural, etc), different polish finishes, put gems in the band, choose your preferred band rounding and width, and then, to top it all off, engrave a message. Phew! Titanium rings are the male equivalent of heirloom diamond jewelry – titanium lasts forever (it is used to make spaceships, after all!), and will still be in as good condition when your grandchildren are wearing it as when he takes it out of the box. Well worth it!
However, female jewelry fiends from the beginning to the end of April will find personalization, and satisfaction, in the Pandora pages. Pandora recently launched a couple of new ranges of jewelry, including an anklet section. You can either use the charms that come with the anklets in store, or personalize the gift by choosing one or more of the hundreds of bracelet charms on site to go on it. While the brown CZ charm shown on a leather anklet is not personalized (yet!), it is a beautifully suitable option for Taurean girls. The earthy, sensual tones of the leather and brown gem will work perfectly with their personality.
If you want to personalize the gift, the silver and gold heart padlock and key is always a popular choice for Taureans. They’ll melt at the overwhelming lovey-doviness of it! The amber birthstone charm is always a good choice for Taureans as well – while it is a November birthstone (according to Pandora’s classification), these wonderfully warm rocks are one of the fruits of the earth, both in nature and color. Both of these choices are dangle charms, which are best for anklets.
One recently added product which adds a world of excitement and possibility to the Pandora pages for Arian girls is the leather lariat which you can now buy on site. These 100cm lengths of leather come with either 14ct gold, or sterling silver ends (we recommend the warmth of yellow gold for Arian girls), and are made to be worn as either necklaces, bracelets, armbands, or anklets. You can add as many different Pandora beads as you like to these, and with some clever twisting, can usually get them to stay in place. What Arians will love is the individuality of it (as well as the fact that because they are new, they’ll be among the first to have one!). You can twist it any way you like, and personalize them with fiery, passionate, Arian style beads like the red fire ribbon Murano glass bead, or the lion with CZ eyes, pictured at right.
There is literally a jewelry option for everybody on site, no matter what their taste, with rings, bracelets, anklets and even ankle wraps to suit anyone’s taste! Check out the titanium rings or the Pandora pages for some more ideas, or have a browse around the men’s pendants or ladies bangles if you’d like to engrave a birthday gift this April.
