Women love receiving jewellery for many reasons. For some, jewellery ties fond memories or events to a physical memento. For others, jewellery opens up the gates to self-expression and boosts confidence. Some women wear jewellery pieces to complement their outfits and add the perfect finishing touch. While some jewellery trends come and go, most tend to become timeless and classic for decades. It is not surprising that heirloom pieces and antique jewellery are highly coveted and are often passed down from generation to generation, even today. Give her the gift that she will cherish for a lifetime with one of the top jewellery gifts for 2012.
A woman of faith will love receiving a beautiful cross necklace for that special occasion. In addition to being timeless and exquisite, cross necklaces are a huge trend in jewellery for 2012.
Floral necklaces, rings and even earrings are lighting up the runways in 2012. Supremely feminine, romantic and alluring, floral jewellery often becomes the focal centerpiece of any outfit. Floral jewellery gifts are ideal for a woman with a traditional or classic wardrobe, as it adds a delicate punch of playfulness to any outfit or ensemble.
Head jewellery is also a popular trend this year. Ornate headbands, wraps and embellished hairpins look exquisite on women with long and short hair alike. Many upscale jewellery and fashion designers are beginning to offer a wide array of logo-embossed hair jewellery.
Those with more daring jewellery tastes will love the return to tribal-inspired jewellery pieces and large resin rings and bangle bracelets. Often featuring unique asymmetrical shapes and vivid colours or patterns, these unique pieces will put the wearer in the limelight and she will receive many compliments every time she wears the bold pieces.
Some jewellery trends never go out of style. Charm bracelets, gold earrings and necklaces, chandelier earrings and linear gemstone drop earrings continue to be among the most popular jewellery trends each year. Chunky diamond, crystal or gemstone cocktail rings are also timeless and ideal to give as a gift to the most independent women.
Shopping for and receiving jewellery is an incredibly personal experience. With so many choices, selecting the perfect jewellery gift for her can take some time and patience. Knowing a lot about the recipient’s lifestyle, personality, favourite colours, birthstone, hobbies and unique tastes can narrow down the options and yield the perfect gift choice for that special occasion.
