Shopping for someone else and not sure where to start? Now seems like a good time for us to impart some jewellery buying wisdom.
First up, consider which metal they normally wear, whether that's silver, yellow or rose gold. If you live with them, take a look in their jewellery box, or if not, social media is always a handy tool for snooping.
For earrings, it sounds silly, but check they have their ears pierced first. Then, do a little detective work. Do they normally wear studs? Hoops? Dangly cocktail earrings? Choosing something that's similar to, or an upgraded version of, something they already own, is a safe bet.
Necklaces are a little easier, but consider the length of the chain before purchasing. Too long or too short, and they're unlikely to wear it. When it comes to design, think about the sort of things they usually wear day-to-day. Something bold and statement might not feel as wearable as a small, delicate pendant.
Rings are the most tricky, as sizing is complicated. They also have obvious romantic connotations, so think carefully before gifting a ring to avoid any uncomfortable situations...
Remember, all items in the Monica Vinader Black Friday sale are only available while stocks last, so shop soon to avoid disappointment.
