Many of us attach precious and happy memories to receiving or gifting jewelry and there’s no better time than the last month of the year to tell a special person how much you mean to them.

There is plenty to consider when it comes to gifting jewelry whether it is earrings, a ring, bracelet or bangle, brooch or necklace or tie pin or cuff links. Irish and Celtic jewelry is a great starting point as there are so many different choices when it comes to materials, motifs, styles and the choice of precious stones but in particular special messages and meanings.

A Claddagh is always a great place to start as the message in this most special of Irish rings is the heart for love, the hands for friendship and a crown for loyalty. A beautiful Claddagh ring, necklace or pair of earrings is an ideal present for anyone from a grandparent to niece, nephew, partner or family member and it is timeless. An additional layer of meaning can be added by choosing a birthstone as part of the design. Throughout history, birthstones have tied tradition with the months, so you can completely tailor the gift to the recipient.
