The holiday jewellery buying guide you've always needed

Holiday season is coming up! For many of us this means a time for celebrations, family gatherings, and of course gift giving. But choosing the right gift isn’t always so easy… and let’s be honest, what we all want is a gift that will be loved and used for years to come. That’s precisely why we at Finnly’s think giving a piece of jewellery is perfect!

We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of jewellery suited for every occasion. But regardless of who you’re buying a piece of jewellery for, it’s likely to be far more symbolic than just of the occasion you gave it – it will become a symbol of your relationship and bond with them.  Since it’s so important to know exactly what to get, we at Finnly’s have taken the liberty to create the ultimate holiday jewellery buying guide for you, both if you’re a complete jewellery beginner or if you’re just looking for some inspiration.

Inspired by the colours of the Mediterranean

Our jewellery is all about adding a splash of colour and being happy with a touch of casual luxury to your everyday life. Sourced from Sri Lanka, our selection of gemstones has been meticulously selected to feature only the best quality and colour to be loved and valued for a lifetime. So here’s our best tips for buying jewellery for this holiday season:

Think about value, not price.

When it comes to giving jewellery as a gift, something that will last a lifetime will likely have far more meaning and will be worn far more than something of a lesser quality. Our advice here is simple: give yourself a budget, keep it in mind, and look for a quality piece of jewellery appropriate to your budget and fits the recipient’s tastes. To make it easier for you, we’ve filtered out some potential gifts under a certain price on our website. In short, something small but meaningful, like our blue topaz earrings, will also hold its value better over the years.

Know what gemstone to choose.

At Finnly’s we stock a wide range of gems of all colours. But how do you decide which one to pick? A natural blue topaz ring or some purple amethyst studs? There’s almost too many choices. Aside from the obvious factor of the colour preferences of the person you’re buying the gift for, birthstones are a great way to think about adding more meaning to specific gemstones. For example, sapphires are commonly gifted for people born in September, opals and tourmalines for October birthdays, citrine and yellow topaz for November, and Amethyst for January. Since Christmas is coming up soon though, if whoever you’re buying the gift for happens to also be born in December there’s no way you can skip the opportunity to get some blue topaz jewellery, whether it be a earrings or a pendant, for them. One of the most popular gemstones in jewellery today, blue topaz has come to symbolise love, wisdom and longevity. What better way to celebrate the holidays?

Know what type of jewellery to choose. 

Even if you know what type of gemstone you want to buy, the question of what type of jewellery can puzzle even the most experienced of us at times. Earrings, bangles, pendants and rings all have their place and can be the perfect gift but depend on the person. Some people prefer smaller, more inconspicuous pieces of jewellery and might prefer some earrings, while others might enjoy a generously sized blue topaz ring or pendant.  Think about what they wear more often, and perhaps even take notes of what they’ve been hinting at.

Create a unique piece of jewellery.

If you have something specific in mind, we are happy to create a unique piece of jewellery according to your ideas and specification, always within your budget constraints. It will be a memorable gift with a very personal touch!

Have confidence in what you end up picking.

We all know buying gifts can be difficult. But at the end of the day, it’s the thought and meaning put into the gift that really gives it value to the recipient. All of the jewellery we produce at Finnly’s is of high value and will stand the test of time and symbolise the special occasion you gifted it for.
