Giving jewellery as a gift is a very personal thing. Almost all of us can remember where each piece of jewellery we own came from.
Wearing a particular piece of jewellery may remind us of that wonderful holiday we took abroad from that fabulous little shop hidden away down a shaded side street, or happy days spent scouring the shops with our best friend.
We remember how our sister gave us that cute little necklace one Christmas, or even the ring bought to celebrate our 21st birthday.
We ALL seem to carry stories with our jewellery, but what can be more personal than jewellery that has been engraved or made specifically for us in some way.
In this blog, we are going to give you some inspirational ideas for wonderful, personalised jewellery gifts.
Some pieces are made especially to order with the recipients’ name, some are initial pendants or necklaces (in various styles) and we’ve also listed many items which can be engraved with the message of your choosing.
These pretty nameplate necklaces, in 925 sterling silver can be made to order with the name of your choice and make perfect gifts.
We have one in a plain script style and another with a butterfly at the beginning and end of the nameplate.
Initial Pendants or Bracelets
An initial pendant is always a firm favourite for ladies and can be worn alongside other pendants.
Of course, these initial charms make great personalised jewellery for her and can also be added to a bracelet. There are various styles, with or without gemstones and in gold or silver.
All the items featured here are jewellery items that can be engraved. With most pieces, you can choose the font and size of the engraving.
Children's Engravable Jewellery
These are just a few ideas that make wonderful children’s gifts which can be engraved.
Engraving makes the gift even more special and something to be treasured a lifetime.
Mens Personalised Jewellery
Men can be so hard to buy for at the best of times. Engraving a piece of jewellery for a man adds that extra touch that makes it so, so special.
We have a number of different styles in men’s signet rings, both in silver or steel which can be engraved which men of any age seem to appreciate. A name or initials seem to be the favourite.
If you would like a family crest, please do contact us as we have had these engraved for people in the past, although this takes a bit longer than a few days.
What to Write on Personalised Jewellery
What you write on personalised jewellery will depend on the size of the piece of jewellery. You can obviously fit a lot more characters on an identity bracelet than you can on the head of a signet ring.
Favourite ideas are to engrave initials, a name, a pet-name (or even a pet’s name!). Secret messages are lovely (we’ve engraved some lovely ones) and you don’t even need to tell us what they mean 😉 !
As previously mentioned, if you would like a family crest or motto engraved on something we can get this done although these sometimes need to be engraved by hand and so take longer to process.
