Personalised Jewellery for Special Occasions

Discover Sophie's suggestions of jewellery gifts for special occasions:

Life is punctuated with celebratory occasions, and for these momentous moments, a piece of personalised jewellery is a gift that never fails to impress. Shortly after the birth of my godchildren, both boys, I gave their mothers a plain signet ring for each, to be kept safe until they are of an age where they know what they want to personalise them with. I’m looking forward to the time when we will sit down and discuss options because I’m sure they will have their own thoughts and ideas. This is the beauty of personalised jewellery. It is always one of a kind, and can say whatever you want it to say. 

While there are no hard and fast rules, some jewels lend themselves to certain life celebrations. If you have a christening coming up, are looking for a special gift to mark the arrival of a new baby, or have another milestone that you wish to celebrate, allow me to recommend the perfect personalised presents based on my own experience of giving them and that of our many happy clients. 

Personalised christening gifts

For christenings, I love to give gifts that a child will want to wear later in life, with a charm bracelet a brilliant option for a girl. Available in silver or 9-carat yellow gold, ours features a heart-shaped padlock and disc, which you can personalise with a monogram of the baby’s initials or their date of birth. Alternatives include our mini disc bracelet, which can be similarly engraved with the date they arrived in the world, or an initial pendant, which looks great when engraved with our signature intertwined letters.

Boys are a different proposition, and this is where the idea of a signet ring is perfect. At some point down the line, you can decide together what to engrave it with. Alternatively, customised cufflinks make an excellent christening gift for a boy. Whenever an occasion calls for smart dress, they will be forever grateful they have their own, personalised pair of cufflinks to fasten their shirt with.  



Personalised push presents

I’m at that point in my life when barely a month goes by without news of a new arrival among my friends - or a baby on the way. Push presents are an American import that have really caught on here, and I completely understand why. Mum is elated yet beyond exhausted. At no point in life has she deserved a gift more. 

I have helped many people find push presents for their partners, and I always recommend the same pieces. Firstly, an acrostic pendant featuring different coloured gemstones, with the first letter of each stone spelling out the name of the new arrival. A personalised pendant, set with their birthstone or engraved with your child’s fingerprint or initials, is another option that shows you have really thought about your gift. Or a diamond eternity ring, the quintessential push present - simple and perfect, a jewel she will wear every day. 



Personalised gifts to celebrate life milestones

From a new graduate in the family to passing your driving test, falling in love to landing an exciting job, there are many life milestones that I have celebrated with a personalised gift. In fact, a new job is the perfect occasion to indulge in a gift to self - a diamond necklace or cocktail ring that will always remind you of that feeling of success. The ultimate celebratory jewel, our Garland ring is just as suited to an important anniversary as it is to being the very first jewel you buy for a special someone. And there isn’t a single life milestone that won’t be etched in their memory forever with the gift of a diamond necklace.
