Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide Series: Birthstone Edition

Birthstones refer to the ancient idea that specific gemstones accompany one’s birth month. Each birthstone has a unique meaning and historical significance behind it that you might be surprised by. These gems date way back; birthstones are mentioned in the Bible and they were worn by ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, and Romans. Back then, it was widely believed that gemstones had incredible powers such as the ability to boost wearers’ luck, health, or prosperity. It was thought that wearing the gemstone during its assigned month would heighten the power.

Birthstone jewellery has remained a favourite for ages; popularity continuing to rise steadily due to the desire to wear or gift something that is both beautiful and has personal significance to the wearer. You don’t need to be a history major or a gemstone expert to find the perfect birthstone gift; here at Edwards & Davies, we’ve done all the hard work for you! Not only are birthstones gorgeous, but they also add that extra special sense of personalization to the gift of fine jewellery.

Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be problematic enough during the hectic moments of holiday shopping, but adding in the overwhelming pressure of staying within budget is enough to send anyone into that boring gift-card-giving rut.

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

As the holiday gift-buying season is about to begin ramping up, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the last person to get checked off your list is your husband, brother, father, or son. Deciding on gifts for the men in your life – gifts that they will truly appreciate – can be a big challenge. The jewellery store is likely not even on your radar; however, it can be a jackpot in terms of gift shopping this season.

Men’s jewellery is (finally) having its moment! This year we have seen more and more men taking to the streets sporting bold rings, sophisticated watches, and chain necklaces. As the era of men sporting simple wedding bands and nothing else comes to an end, so does the belief that jewellery is only for women.

If you are ready to shop for a special man in your life, step up his style game with a jewellery piece that will also boost his confidence. This gift guide will suggest some of the best – and most wearable – men’s jewellery pieces with our tips on how to help the men in your life style them. Keep in mind that men’s jewellery will work best when you select understated, simple pieces that can work with a range of looks.

Trend Watch: 2018 Fall/Winter Jewellery

Earlier this month, Fall/Winter Fashion Week took place, showcasing the season’s collections and highlighting upcoming trends. While many eyes were on the outfits, we were more concerned with catching the smaller details – jewellery. However, this season’s jewellery is anything but small. Trends dictated by the biggest, most influential names in fashion – Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga – show a common theme: bigger is better. Jewellery for 2018 should be anything but small and dainty. We are loving bold jewellery that showcases the unique personality of the wearer, styles that mix texture and colour, and statement pieces that pack a visual punch!

Turning the Old Into New – Feature Jewellery Re-design Job

What to do with old jewellery? Maybe it’s a piece from your grandmother, an out of style item passed down from your great uncle, or even something you have already owned for a while and just aren’t feeling the look of it anymore. Don’t let it sit in your jewellery box and collect dust! We absolutely love getting old pieces of jewellery and making it into something modern and new. And you can too!

The options are endless when it comes to redesign. Maybe you have an idea or maybe you don’t. We can help with that. A ring doesn’t have to become another ring and a necklace doesn’t have to become another necklace. You can take the sentimental stones out of the jewellery and even repurpose the gold to put it into another piece. This makes it more modern and stylish but also holds on to the personal value of it!

The re-design page of our website (click here to see!) breaks down our entire process of turning an old piece of jewellery into new so, let’s follow the steps and check out the process we went through with this beautiful custom piece!
