We are firm believers in jewelry as a birthday gift … and a Christmas gift, Mother’s Day gift, Easter gift, ‘I love you’ gift, ‘I’m sorry’ gift, and general purpose credit builder! But we do often hear people say that they aren’t sure if jewelry is a little impersonal to give as a gift – if they shouldn’t get something that is more ’specific’ to the their loved one. Sometimes buying jewelry for someone else can be like buying their clothes – there are a hundred million factors that go into a decision, and you can’t cover them all. That’s why we’re here to show you how you can dodge that enormous responsibility (!), and find a jewelry gift that is very ’specific’ to the person you are buying for. Here are our personalized gift picks for September birthdays!
You are probably already familiar with Pandora bracelets – they have become the market leader in a worldwide resurgence of charm bracelets for big girls as well as little girls! You can see some of the possible designs at the beginning of the article, but if you’re looking for a gift that can be personalized, less will be more. That way you can give your loved one the gift of choice … the most thoughtful one of all! Why not start off with a little something from you, though – the Murano glass beads at right are selected for September born girls. Blue is the signature color of Virgos, those cool, reserved, neat and tidy perfectionsist born from the 1st to 21st of September. Librans are born from the 22nd onwards, and the signature color for these sociable, graceful, best-of-everything souls is pink. They’ll love the vibrancy of the pink bead with red flowers underneath Virgo’s blue one.
Virgos are cool and reserved – they don’t tend to say too much, and they are also very loyal in love and friendship. The elephant is a perfect symbol for them (if they can get past the fact that these sweet, intelligent animals are usually covered in mud!), which is why we picked the baby elephant charm for Virgo gals. It is from the Pandora sterling silver collection, so is one of the more affordable Pandora charm options. It has been extremely popular since it was introduced only a few months ago!
Librans love to have the best in life – and Pandora knows just how to give it to them, with intricately molded, top quality charms like the gold Queen Bee at right. Librans are supposed to be quite sociable souls – and there is nobody that loves a party more than the Queen Bee! The gold base for the charm is 14ct, and if the price tag frightens you off, you can get just a little of the same luxury for a fraction of the price with the Queen Bee in the Silver and Gold section.
The personalizability of the Pandora range is now applicable to earrings, as well as necklaces and bracelets, with the newly launched range of Mix n Match Earrings. You can either purchase a single pair of hooks, and pop all of your different attachments on there (saving a fair bit of money in the process), or grab several different hooks for all the attachments and … mix and match! We chose the bubbles hooks for Virgo girls, who are like the ocean – deep, calm and sometimes unfathomable! They match perfectly with the amazonite attachments at right, with their hues of sunny summer days at the beach and silver bubbles to match! Even with hook and attachment sold separately, you’ll often find that the Mix n Match earrings are more cost effective than traditional all in one earrings.
Nomination bracelets are the sleeker, ingenious Italian version of the olden-style charm bracelet. They are put together with a novel linking system that makes them both much lighter and more compact that ordinary Pandora bracelets, but just as personalizable. Libran girls will love the gingerbread people link to the right. Being around other people is their lifeblood, so you couldn’t possibly give them a link with just one person on it! The gingerbread people link can be found under the ‘Fun’ section of the Gold category on the Nomination bracelet builder, suiting Libra’s upscale sensibilities!
Alternatively, you could go for something like the yellow cubic zirconia butterfly link at right … these social butterflies of women are always flitting from one group to another. The cubic zirconia give the link that extra bit of sparkle and life, while the standard silver backing helps keep the price down for you. These can flutter into her heart in a huge variety of colors – choose from white, red, green, pink, lilac, blue, light blue, yellow, orange and black cubic zirconias. Check out what they look like in the Animals section of the Cubic Zirconia category.
You might already be familiar with the amazing number of things you can do with titanium rings on site at Gilletts – from choosing the band shape, width, and contrast metals, to personalizing the color of the titanium, adding gemstones, and putting on personal engravings. In fact, all of that choice can seem a little intimidating! If you check through the pre-made titanium rings section, though, you’ll find many more different styles of ring. Some of them have only a few personalization options (like finish, band style and band width), others have the full gamut of alternatives. The Dora brand ring at right is a great example – with this ring you can choose whether to use white, yellow or rose gold for the contrast metal (we recommend the cool silver tones of white gold for Virgos, and rose gold for Librans as it includes their signature metal, copper). You can also choose the finish for the center section, and add an engraved message (up to 20 characters) for no extra charge. The Dora brand is usually associated with wedding rings, but this piece is stylish, versatile, and cost effective.
When you personalize a titanium ring from base with our on-site options, you don’t get the choice of having two band styles in one, like you have with the solar red gold and titanium ring at right … but you have just about every other option with this ring! With the red gold edges incorporating Libra’s signature metal, this is a great choice for scales-born guys or girls. You can choose your ring width, from 3.5 to 9mm, metal type, finish of the metals, any gemstones as well as their setting types. Some of these options even cut down the price of the ring!
There isn’t the surprise factor with personalized jewelry that there is with gifts you’ve chosen yourself … but there is the guarantee that the piece will be loved and treasured!
