Why jewellery is the perfect gift why women love receiving jewellery

If there’s one gift that has stood the test of time, it’s jewellery. The concept of jewellery actually predates modern humans – the first evidence of ornamentation is dated to 135,000 years ago and was discovered in a Neanderthal cave in Croatia. Whether it’s a bracelet made of eagle talons, or something a bit more contemporary, jewellery remains one of the most popular gift purchases and forms of adornment. Below are 8 reasons why jewellery is still the perfect gift, and why women still love receiving it!

1. It has sentimental attachment

A gift of jewellery is often chosen thoughtfully, with the recipient’s personal tastes in mind. For this reason, jewellery tends to retain a sense of sentimentality. When it’s gifted from a partner, friend or family member, it becomes meaningful (more meaningful than that toaster oven your husband gave you last Christmas!). Truth be told, jewellery’s lack of functionality is precisely what makes it so special! Wearing the gifted piece reminds the wearer that they are loved and that someone was thinking about them.

2. It’s a fashion statement

Completing one’s outfit with jewellery is one of the easiest ways to show the world your style. Jewellery is universal in that fit is rarely an issue and many women who struggle with clothing sizes find comfort in this.

3. It offers self-confidence

Popping on a pretty piece of jewellery is the easiest way to feel fancy or to dress up an outfit (Ideal for on-camera Zoom meetings!) For those working from home, it’s also an excellent way to step into a work-mode mindset and maintain a sense of self.

4. It takes up minimal room

Perhaps jewellery is the best gift because it’s so easy to store when it’s not in use. Its petite size and compact nature makes it so simple to tuck away! A woman can cherish multiple pieces without feeling a collection = clutter.

5. It makes gifting easy

Necklaces, bracelets and rings are just so easy to wrap, hide and present. Most jewellers still thoughtfully pack each piece, and the small profile makes hiding jewellery gifts a breeze! And if you do catch a peek before it’s time to open your gift, the classic box shapes lend a feeling of anticipation.

6. It lasts forever

If treated well, jewellery made of precious metals like silver, gold or platinum can last your whole life – or longer! The gift giving nature of jewellery often continues as pieces are passed down from one generation to the next (your new toaster oven is not likely to have the same longevity).

7. It’s a way to treat someone

Even if it’s not an extravagance, many women hesitate to treat themselves to a new piece of jewellery…which is exactly why it makes the perfect gift!

8. It’s a piece of art

Jewellery sits neatly between the world of art and craft. What more can you ask for, then an everyday art piece that can be shared with others as you move about your day?
