The UNUSUAL Christmas Jewellery Gift Guide


Christmas is coming and before you know it the big day itself will be here. Jewellery has always been, and will always be, a firm favourite as a gift. But what if you gift jewellery every year? You may well be running out of ideas. If this is the case, then our Christmas jewellery gift guide is for you!

Here’s a roundup of our favourite slightly-different jewellery pieces from your favourite local jeweller in Ilford:

Engraved Jewellery

If you often give jewellery, then giving something that’s engraved will add a bit more of a personal touch to your gift. It doesn’t have to be a special message, either. If you’d rather, why not have a significant date engraved, or the names of your children?

And it’s not just women’s jewellery that can be engraved; men can get in on the engraved jewellery action too through an engraved sovereign ring or watch, for example.

Heirloom Jewellery

If you’ve got a special piece that you’d like to pass on to someone as a Christmas gift, but you’re not sure that it’s exactly to their taste, why not have it slightly remodelled? A good jeweller will be able to keep the integrity of the original piece, but change it just enough to suit the new owner.

If you’re confident enough to know what changes should be made for the recipient, then obviously you can have this commissioned in advance of giving the gift.

If, however, you’re not entirely sure, why not include a note or a ‘voucher’ offering to pay for changes should the recipient want it remodelled? That way you, the new owner and the jeweller can work together to create the ideal piece.

Personalised Jewellery

Initial jewellery has come full circle and is now back in fashion, but often with a slight twist. You don’t have to just wear one initial nowadays, which would have usually been your own; how about wearing the initials of all of your children, for example, or that of yours and your other half’s on one pendant?

Initial jewellery is a thoughtful gift which will also stand as a talking point when the recipient wears it.

Jewellery Making Days

For a truly unique gift for the artsy crafty person in your life, how about a jewellery making class? There are lots of jewellers and craft tutors that offer this nowadays, so if you’d rather give an experience, this could be for you.

Alternatively, if you don’t think the person in question would be interested in making their own jewellery, why not offer to have a broken piece repaired, or commission a completely new piece for them with a local jeweller in Ilford?

Whatever type of jewellery you decide to give this Christmas, remember that EK Jewellers will be happy to give advice. From a range of in-stock pieces through to repairs and bespoke jewellery, we’ll be happy to help. Don’t just give any old piece of jewellery this year, give something unique.
