Why jewelry makes the perfect gift
There’s nothing like receiving a gift, regardless of whether it is expected or not, large or small, or needed or not. A beautifully wrapped item is always so exciting to receive. It doesn’t have to be the world’s most expensive vacuum cleaner just to earn their excitement. In fact, perhaps what gets people so excited is the mystery of what’s inside – the idea of being thought of and remembered, or the fact you are about to get something that could potentially make you very happy.
Jewelry has been one of the most common forms of gifts since the beginning of time. Women (and men) have always enjoyed adorning themselves with stunning jewels, and since these precious items can cost quite the pretty penny, they have become a way of expressing how important someone is to you. But what is it about these embellishments that make them worth giving, time and time again?
Jewelry is something one does not generally buy for one’s self
Most people make a habit of treating themselves once in a while to something special or at the very least make sure that they renew the basics such as shoes, clothing, bags and coats every now and then. However, there are some things that are just not on most people’s radar, mostly because it is extra, considered a luxury, and come at a significant cost. Jewelry is one of these items. Therefore it is up to others to gift you with this very special item from time to time. Just the fact that this is not an every day kind of gift makes it exciting and unique.
Jewelry is a wearable item/gift that is also sentimental
Practically anything can be given as a gift. If it is needed, wanted, or will make someone happy, it is a great gift, whatever it may be. Nevertheless, there is no denying the fact that some gifts are more sentimental than others. There is simply something about jewelry that makes it sentimental. Perhaps it is because some jewelry pieces represent very monumental periods in people’s lives such as engagements, weddings, births and graduations. Regardless, one thing is for certain: jewelry is a wearable item that is not just useful and pretty, but sentimental as well.
Jewelry can be timeless
If you think about gifts you have received over the years, try to think about which gifts are still in use. Even those that are still being used are either fairly new or on their last leg. Only jewelry can be cared for and enjoyed for generations. There are endless classic jewelry styles that ensure your piece will never become irrelevant, and even in case it does, settings can always be changed and upgraded.
Jewelry is a gift now, and an heirloom later
There’s nothing better than knowing that a gift is yours and all yours when you first receive it. But after you have tired of it or it has served its purpose, it is truly sad to simply discard it or find it a better home. Jewelry, as we already mentioned, can be worn for decades, but even when not in use can be easily stored due to its small size and passed down to the next generation as a useful and meaningful heirloom. Not to mention, depending on the piece it can retain or even increase in value.
Jewelry can be given to people of all ages
One of the hardest things about gift shopping is finding something suitable for each age group, and then running from one store to the next. With jewelry, all ages are relevant. From a wee newborn to a senior, jewelry appeals to every generation. When you gift jewelry, you take care of all ages with one gift idea, and possibly just one store.
Jewelry can be gifted on any occasion
Anything can be given as a gift for just about every occasion, but some items are more suitable for certain occasions. While perfume may make a nice birthday gift or event present, it is less suitable as a gift for a graduation. Jewelry on the other hand can be given in honor of any one of these occasions, and then some. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, engagements, births, Christmas gifts, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteen parties, celebrating a job, promotion, or move, or a thank you gift; all these are the perfect opportunities to give the gift of jewelry.
Jewelry can suit any personality
When searching for certain items for someone, it can be difficult to determine whether or not it would suit his or her personality. Some gifts are right for some personalities, and are wrong for others. Jewelry can truly suit any personality, from a quiet and withdrawn type to an out-there, bubbly sort.
Jewelry is appropriate for all body types and skin tones
Another reason why jewelry makes such a terrific gift is that it doesn’t discriminate. One cannot deny the fact that some items have certain body types or skin tones in mind, and are just wrong for anyone who doesn’t fit into the box. Jewelry is not like that.
It really should be a no-brainer that jewelry is one of the most successful gift ideas of all times, but for those still deliberating, never forget that the options are endless. Never suffice with the thought that your intended recipient already “has” jewelry and get some inspiration to some of the trending jewelry fashion pieces. Diamond jewelry, sapphire jewelry, rubies, emeralds, pearls, gold, platinum, and silver galore; the sky is the limit!
