Earrings as Gifts: A History of the Intricate Jewellery
Earrings have actually been a popular jewellery choice for over 7,000 years: originating in ancient Asia, they have been worn by all social classes across the world throughout the centuries. As with all jewellery, they’ve come in and out of fashion, but they’re now truly a timeless staple worn by millions of people around the world every single day.
Earrings are incredibly versatile, and we believe that this is why they’ve stood the test of time: different shapes and sizes can be worn according to your face shape, desired look, and preference of metal.
Earrings can be Created from Different Metals
Adding to both their versatility and longevity, earrings can be curated from different types of metal. This is partly what makes them such a great gift this festive season: no matter the shade and type of metal your gift receiver prefers to wear, there will be an earring type suitable for them. Let’s have a look at the most popular types of metal available for earrings:
- Yellow Gold: A popular type of metal for earrings, yellow gold is renowned for its gorgeous golden hue, and is the perfect base metal for many gemstones. We always recommend purchasing a yellow gold earring that’s of 14k gold or above to ensure it’s of the best quality.
- White Gold: Another popular choice, this metal contains mostly gold with an alloy mix to whiten the colour of the metal. Again, we recommend using a white gold allow that’s 14k gold or above.
- Rose Gold: Rose gold is a renowned romantic metal, loved by many for its vintage appearance and pinkish hue. It’s a perfect choice for earrings that contain a coloured gemstone, as the contrast of most colours works beautifully together.
What Type of Earrings Should I Buy for a Gift?
Earrings are a beautiful gift, and there are things you should consider before buying them as a gift for someone.
Firstly, what type of metal do they typically wear? This will dictate your initial search due to some jewellers specialising in certain types of metal: at Jason Ree, we work with all types, so our versatile collection is the perfect choice for a gift.
Next, are they one to wear more simple pieces, or do they prefer more colourful, larger jewellery types? The beauty of earrings is that they can be perfectly simple, like small studs, or minimal hoops for example. However, they can also have something extra: a dazzling gemstone, or perhaps some clever twists and turns through the metal, earrings can simply dazzle in their beauty!
One unique addition to a festive gift is focusing the earrings around their favourite gemstone: maybe they’re a lover of sapphires, perhaps green is their favourite colour so emerald earrings would be fitting, or maybe they would love a deep ruby red to match the symbolic nature of Christmas? Either way, jewellery as a gift is the perfect way to have fun and embrace colour!
Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that different earrings come with differing price points, so understanding your budget when choosing your gift is of the utmost importance.
