Michael Hill offers a vast range of beautiful, quality jewellery gifts.
You can find the perfect gift ideas for all sorts of special occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and weddings.
Jewellery is a wonderful gift idea for birthdays, whether you’re shopping for a loved one’s milestone birthday – such as their 18th, 21st, 30th or 50th birthday – or you just want to treat them to something special.
By choosing a quality piece of jewellery, you can give your friend, family member or partner a keepsake that they will cherish for years to come, and that they can wear everyday as a reminder of you and your thoughtful gesture.
For a birthday gift they are sure to love, find a beautiful piece featuring their birthstone. Birthstone jewellery gives a personal touch to any gift, and will show your loved one that you have put a lot of thought into their gift. Birthstones are gemstones that have symbolic connections to each month and are believed to have special meaning for those whose birthday falls within the same month.
There is a birthstone for every month of the year, and a stunning piece of jewellery for every birthstone; including stud earrings, drop earrings, pendants, bracelets, and rings.
Anniversaries are one of the most special milestones to be celebrated, because they represent your ongoing love and devotion to your partner.
A beautiful piece of jewellery makes the perfect anniversary gift, since it is a symbol of how precious your partner is to you, and it is something they can wear always to be reminded of you.
For the perfect anniversary jewellery gift, spoil your loved one with the token that’s associated with how many years you have been married. For example, the modern symbol for your first anniversary is a clock, so a quality watch is a great gift idea.
Your 10th anniversary is marked by diamonds; your 25th is associated with silver; your 30th with pearls, your 40th anniversary with rubies; and your 50th anniversary is celebrated with gold.
An anniversary ring, or eternity ring, is also the perfect, meaningful gift of anniversary jewellery. These rings symbolise your everlasting love and commitment, and are traditionally given on a milestone anniversary or when celebrating the birth of your first child.
A graduation is a significant milestone in life, and one that you will want to celebrate with your loved one.
They could be graduating high school, university, an apprenticeship, a Master’s Degree, or returning to education later in life; whatever their achievement, a beautiful and timeless piece of jewellery is the perfect gift to give your friend or family member to mark their exciting transition from one phase of life to the next.
Since graduation is a special milestone and a life moment to be remembered, a classic style of jewellery is the perfect gift idea, as it is something your loved one can wear for years to come to be reminded of their achievement and all that they gone on to achieve since then.
For women, consider a piece of timeless gold jewellery – such as a gold bangle, chain bracelet, stud or hoop earrings.
Diamond jewellery is also a stunning graduation gift idea, and guaranteed to make her feel special. Opt for a piece she can wear time and time again, such as diamond studs or a pendant.
For men, a luxe watch is the perfect gift idea, as it is something he can wear everyday or keep for special occasions if preferred.
To truly make him feel special on his graduation, consider a ceramic watch, chronograph watch, or a watch featuring diamonds.
The birthstone for each month of the year, and their related symbolism, is as follows:
- January – Garnet (health, vitality, and protection)
- February – Amethyst (strength, stability, and wisdom)
- March – Aquamarine (tranquillity, harmony, and strong connections)
- April – Diamond (purity, strength, and love)
- May – Emerald (faith, love, and new beginnings)
- June – Pearl (wisdom, perseverance, and integrity)
- July – Ruby (vitality, passion, and heart’s desire)
- August – Peridot (prosperity, fearlessness, and beauty)
- September – Sapphire (wisdom, serenity, and focus)
- October – Opal (hope, happiness, and love)
- November – Citrine (energy, abundance, and brightness in dark places)
- December – Blue Topaz (spiritual connection, peace, and protection)
Just as there are many types of jewellery you can give to your loved one as a gift, there are different things that are symbolised with certain types of jewellery.
For instance, diamonds are commonly considered to be tokens of love.
While traditionally diamonds have been associated with engagement rings, they can also represent any type of love – including romantic (they don’t only have to be given for engagements), family and friendship love.
Each and every gemstone has a unique symbolism attached to it, so you can choose the piece with a story that you think will resonate most with your loved one.
Of course, by thoughtfully choosing any piece of jewellery that you know someone will love and that will suit their personal style, you are showing that you have really thought about them and that you value your relationship.
Above all, jewellery is precious, so by giving someone a gift of jewellery you are letting them know that they are precious to you and that your bond with them is everlasting.
