If you are struggling to purchase the perfect gift for a loved one, then it might be time to visit a few jewellers around town. When chocolate, flowers, and perfume don’t meet the mark, jewellery does.

What’s more, you’re sure to find that nothing brings a smile to your loved one’s face faster than opening a box and finding sparkling jewellery staring back at them. However, why do rings, necklaces, and bracelets make such great gifts? Find out below.

It Lasts a Long Time

When you buy flowers, they die. When you buy chocolates, you eat them. When you buy perfume, you smell beautiful, but then you use it all up. However, when you visit jewellers and purchase stunning jewellery, it lasts a lifetime. The long-lasting effect of jewellery is probably why it makes such a great gift, and why the Australian jewellery industry is worth 4.1 billion dollars. Everyone sees the value in spending a little more but giving a gift the receiver can own forever.

It Shows You Care

Whether you’re treating someone to a birthday gift, something for Valentine’s Day, or Christmas, nothing shows you care with more success than jewellery. Anything else can seem like you’ve passed a petrol station on the way home and only remembered to pick up something at the last minute.

However, if you stop by a jeweller’s and take the time to pick out something unique and special, it shows you care far more than flowers, chocolate, or perfume ever will.

Before you even begin to look at bridesmaids gifts, it’s crucial to nail those final details of your bridesmaid outfits first. Even if you’ve already measured all the bridesmaids, ordered their bridesmaid robes, and ensured everyone was happy, did you put in any thought to the type of accessories they can wear or will be wearing?

If you’ve decided that bridesmaids can choose their own accessories, here are a few things to consider discussing with the girls.

Style

When you first chose the dresses for your bridesmaids, around the same time you looked for bridesmaids gifts, you would have had a particular style and theme in mind. And, this theme would need to tie in with the overall look and feel of the wedding. Before you let your bridesmaids go and choose the accessories they like, make sure they are aware of your style preferences. The last thing you want is for them to go and pick out large dreamcatcher earrings for a contemporary wedding.

Size

Believe it or not, the size of the accompanying accessories can make a difference to the entire look of your bridesmaids. After you’ve selected the dresses, and even before you’ve organised bridesmaids gifts, it’s a good idea to give your bridesmaids a run-through of the acceptable sizing. It’s even better if you can offer them a ratio.

While you want their own unique personality to show through, you also don’t want a necklace the size of a dessert plate to overshadow the entire appearance of the dress. To avoid any uncomfortable situations, lay down the ground rules sooner rather than later.
