When you visit a jeweller, particularly around Valentine’s Day, you can quickly get the impression that such a store is more suitable for loved-up couples. While many options fit into that category – such as wedding and engagement bands – there are equally as many that can spell friendship too.
If you are on the hunt for something that can cement your friendship, then these options below could be worth your consideration.
A charm bracelet is not only something you can buy for your significant other – or even yourself, but for a near and dear friend as well. You will be surprised at the options available in the charm bracelet market too. Depending on your budget, you can choose something classy and elegant like gold, or something more practical and stylish such as silver. Then, as a token of your friendship, you can include one or two meaningful charms with the present as well.
A locket is a meaningful piece of jewellery that your local jeweller may recommend for a long-distant friend or one who is planning on moving away from you soon. In one half, you can put a picture of yourself, and in the other, a picture of them. The locket itself usually is quite an elegant necklace too, featuring either gold or silver.
Silver bangles make for the perfect friendship gift, especially when you take the time to choose one that suits them and fits perfectly too. Bracelets are something that most jewellers stock, and you can also engrave them on the inside. Write something special, so that your friend can enjoy and embrace it forever. What you may also like about bangles and your friend too, is that they are a practical gift.
In many industries, you can get away with wearing sensible jewellery, and a bangle ticks this box. There is also an option to suit most budgets. Higher-end bracelets tend to feature gold, but more affordable options are silver. Pick the bracelet that both looks stunning and suits your budget.
Finally, don’t underestimate the value in a friendship ring. With many gifts for friends, you can end up getting them something but nothing for yourself to go with it, so you remember the moment too. In the case of friendship rings, they can be something unique and special.
Many jewellers stock half rings – pairs of two that have, for example, half a heart on one, and a half on the other. Even if your local jeweller has nothing like that, they are bound to have an affordable ring you can buy two of so that you can get one each.
Don’t underestimate the heartwarming feeling of getting your dearly loved friend something they can cherish forever. Ask your local jewellers what they have in stock.
