It almost feels like an oxymoron to say that personalisation, monogramming and one-offs are a big trend in fashion that’s gained serious momentum over the past few years. Pair that with ‘push’ presents and anniversary gifts creating more excuses to add to our mental gift wish lists and having your own original piece of style is more desirable and accessible than ever.
For yourself or as a gift, handmade jewellery with added meaning or even just something a little different will complete any look to make it your – or their – own.
I selected some of the best pieces from online retailer of unique gift ideas, Uncommon Goods:
Jewellery from £52.68, all available at Uncommon Goods
1. My Lucky Stars bracelet
Add a star for each child to represent your brood. Simple yet thoughtful.
2. ‘She believed she could’ bracelets
Stack up these bangles which appear plain but are actually inscribed with an inspiring message we could all do with reminding ourselves of sometimes; ‘She believed she could, so she did‘. Amen to that.
3. Past present future bracelet
With three rings to each represent your past, present and future, it’s a simple reminder of how far you’ve come and to think about what’s still to come.
4. Personalised handwriting necklace
This ‘love’ necklace would be a top pick as it is but imagine having your child’s or a loved one’s handwriting put onto a chain to wear close to your heart, priceless.
5. My heart within yours necklace
Mixed metals are having a moment in jewellery world, with several two tone pieces here proving its popularity. Contrasting the gold and silver in this necklace highlights the smaller heart resting upon the larger heart.
6. Stalactite slice ring
I’ve written about raw stone jewellery before here and it’s still a thing. Make this unique piece your statement and stack other fingers with plain bands for a boho finish.
7. Floral wood watch
This pick is less about meaning and more about having a quirky timepiece to add a bit of fun to your style. That, and remind you you’re running late for the school run, again.
8. Milestone drop necklace
While this necklace may still have you pausing to recall which child has which birthdate when making a Doctor’s appointment (tell me it’s not just me) it’s a sweet way to wear those dates in a subtle way. Each strand represents a year with 12 notches, one for each month. Choose where to put your diamonds to signify important dates in your life.
9. Unicorn and rainbow pendant
When your 5 year old has a major thing for unicorns, and I mean, major, it would be rude not to include her choice on her namesake blog.
