Tips for self-gifting a piece of jewellery you’ll love forever
Self-gifting is a beautiful form of self-love. It’s about treating yourself to something special, to appreciate and admire yourself, your hard work, your life’s journey, and your own personal milestones. Whether you’ve been through something tricky recently, or just because you deserve it, selecting the right piece of jewellery for yourself ensures it will be cherished for years to come. And whether you’re single or coupled up doesn’t matter – remember that this piece is all about your self love.
1. Identify your style
The best thing about self-gifting is that you can’t ‘get it wrong’. You know your own taste and preferences better than anyone else, and you can choose the perfect piece that calls to you. Consider whether you love minimalist or maximalist style, and whether you want your special piece to be worn daily or saved for special occasions. You could even look at your own jewellery collection to decide what is ‘missing’ and go from there.
2. Choose versatile pieces
For the best value, opt for items that can be worn in multiple settings – like a simple gold chain necklace, diamond stud earrings, a stacking ring or a classic bracelet. These pieces are versatile and can elevate both casual and formal outfits.
3. Invest in quality
High-quality materials like gold, platinum, sterling silver and fine diamonds and gemstones not only last longer than ‘fashion’ jewellery, but also maintain their beauty over time. They may be more of an investment initially, but their longevity makes them worthwhile. Invest in yourself and you can love your jewellery piece for many years to come.
4. Consider customisation
Engraved pieces or pieces with special meaning to you have a unique touch and ensure your piece will stand out. You could opt for an engravable ring, where you inscribe a special date or meaning to you. Alternatively, you could opt for a piece with your initial, or choose a birthstone piece, representing the month you were born.
5. Don’t forget comfort
Comfort is key! You want your new piece of jewellery to last forever – so ensure that your choice is comfortable for everyday wear. For instance, a lightweight bracelet or a ring with a smooth band are ideal for constant wear. You should also consider hypoallergenic metals such as platinum, if you are prone to allergies or sensitives.
6. Trust your instincts
Ultimately, the best piece of jewellery to honour yourself is one that you feel a connection with. Trust your instincts. If a piece catches your eye and you can’t stop thinking about it, it’s likely a perfect choice for you; no matter what anyone else thinks of it.
