Christmas gift guide for the jewellery lover

Pulling out a beautifully wrapped jewellery box out of a Christmas stocking

Shopping for a loved one this Christmas but not sure what jewellery pieces they would love? Understanding your recipient’s taste is crucial to buying the perfect jewellery piece.

Follow our question guide below, and we'll be able to help you find the perfect gift.

1. Do they wear jewellery? If they do, what kind of jewellery do they wear?

Pay attention to the jewellery they currently wear, or check photos you might have of them and see if you can spot the jewellery they are wearing.

This will normally tell you a lot about what type of jewellery they like.

Things to look out for:

  • Do they like something simple, or more extravagant?
  • Do they wear their jewellery every day, or only for special occasions?
  • Do they prefer to layer their jewellery (wear multiple necklaces/bracelets), or do they stick to one piece?
  • Do they have a gemstone they tend to wear more often?

If they don't wear a lot of jewellery...

If they prefer to wear statement jewellery pieces, or only wear jewellery for special occasions...

If they like to layer their jewellery...

If they love diamonds...

2. What colour metal do they wear?

Usually, jewellery lovers will have a preference for a particular metal between yellow gold, white gold/silver or rose gold. Sometimes, they may mix and match their metals.

Ensuring you order the correct metal colour is important as it shows you understand their personal style.

Whilst all of La Grotta's jewellery come in Yellow Gold, some of our designs like the Amelia necklace, Isabella bracelet and Blakely necklace also come in White Gold.

If a design doesn't come in the metal colour you want, please email us as we can custom make a piece for you.

3. Do they have have a preference for earrings, necklaces or bracelets?

Some jewellery lovers have a preference for wearing earrings, necklaces, bracelets or rings.

Others, love all jewellery equally.

If the recipient of your gift has a preference, the safer option is to stick with the jewellery category they love and will wear most.

La Grotta has a variety of pieces within Rings, Bracelets, Earrings and Necklaces.
