Jewellery Gifts for Every Kind of Love
No matter the recipient, show how much you care with our edit of the most precious gems to be found in our jewellery hall.
Gifting jewellery has long been a symbolic gesture of adoration, but it needn’t be reserved for the romantic kind of love. In fact, there are brilliant jewellery gift ideas to be found to suitably honour love in its every form, from matching bracelets as an emblem of friendship, jewels to show a little parental gratitude, or even a right-hand ring, the self-gifted symbol of feminine independence. Below, we’ve cherry-picked the most precious of jewellery gifts of them all.
The Bobby Dazzler to Gift Your Mum
It’ll never be easy to surmise all the love you have for your mother in a single object, but a sentimental piece of jewellery is a good start. Easily imbued with special memories, a ring by makers including Missoma, Shaun Leane and Shyla would make an ideal present. Something she’ll never want to take off, every time she looks down and sees it, she’ll be instantly reminded of how much she means to you. Encrusted with two rows of gems that twinkle even when under the dimmest of lights, Astley Clarke’s White Sapphire Double Eternity Ring, £150 is a stunning sparkler to consider. If she has a penchant for more colourful gems, Adore Adorn’s Gold Plated Vermeil Silver Lilly Citrine Ring, £175 is an opulent alternative.
The Ultimate Gift for Dad
Granted, it’s a bit of a cliché, but there’s something about a special watch that never fails to impress a dad. An investment piece with meaning, the classic wristwatch is a heartfelt gift he’ll cherish forever. Junghan’s Max Bill Handaufzug Hand-Winding Watch, £865 is no exception. A piece of German craftmanship, when he’s wearing it, he’ll always have your love by his side. For that extra special occasion, why not opt for the limited edition Zodiac x Liberty Super Sea Wolf Stainless Steel 3-Strap Watch, £1,250? It’s another sophisticated and handsome looking timepiece that’ll make any wrist look immeasurably better.
The Gift for Your Other half
Not at the ring-giving stage? Perhaps the ring finger’s already been adorned with a precious engagement gift, so an alternative piece of jewellery that can be worn everyday and in a multitude of different ways is in order? Wherever your love story's at, the chain necklace will always make the perfect, versatile gift for your beloved. For her, may we recommend something attention-grabbing like Kenneth Jay Lane’s 18ct Gold-Plated Heart Pendant Toggle Necklace, £65? For him, give Miansai's Sterling Silver 2.5mm Volt Link Cable Chain Necklace; when worn, he’ll have your affection close to his chest.
The Best Gift for the Best Friend
You’ve grown up, and so have friendship bracelets. No longer just sweet but childlike strings of beads, these days, friendship bracelets are altogether a little more elevated. Perhaps you and your inner circle fancy Liberty’s 9ct Gold chains, complete with birthstone beads, £225, or Atelier VM’s Sister Cuore waxed-cotton bands, £45. Or you go opulent with Kenneth Jay Lane’s Gold-Plated Oval Flat Link Bracelet, £60. With a padlock charm, it feels like the perfect thing to gift a friend that always has your back.
Show a Little Self-Love
Have you heard about the rise of the right-hand ring? A symbol of feminine independence that harks back to the 1920s, when women bought themselves a suitably special ring to show off their new-found wealth and success, yet it’s a gesture that feels just as apt today. Cocktail rings are the original right-hand rings of choice, epic conversation-starting bands that come loaded in colour, encrusted in stones or loaded with symbolic meaning. Liberty loves Shyla’s Gold-Plated Lenny Glass Stone Cocktail Ring, £60 and Missoma’s 18ct Gold Plated Brass Pink Quartz Jelly Heart Ring, £85, just the kind of jewels that will go with any outfit you pair them with.
