10 Unique vintage jewellery gifts for a special gifting season
The gifting season is just around the corner, and so begins the challenging process of deciding upon your loved ones’ presents.
And if you’re anything like me, then you’ll feel that, although ‘tis the season to be jolly’, it’s also the season when meticulous planning, days spent deliberating, and careful choices finally pay off.
The ultimate goal: a gasp of surprise and wonder in the eyes of the person lucky enough to receive a present from me. (Yes, I take a weird amount of satisfaction from giving awesome gifts!)
That’s the kind of reaction I’ve seen from every single person I’ve gifted vintage jewellery to.
And, trust me, there is someone on your list who would absolutely treasure a piece of jewellery from the past.
You see, vintage jewellery gifts don’t have to be limited to your romantic partner. From your mother and grandmother to a favourite aunt or best friend, anyone who appreciates handcraftsmanship would hanker for a jewel made before the times of mass production.
Just imagine the sweet nostalgia on your grandma’s face when receiving a piece of vintage jewellery for Christmas that wasn’t vintage when she was young.
Or how pleased that notoriously hard-to-shop-for friend would be, knowing that she’s the proud and exclusive owner of a masterpiece that only she gets to wear.
But since vintage jewellery is not your average choice of present, you’d probably need some help with choosing one (or two) pieces.
