Gift Guide for 30th Birthdays

30th Birthday

Thirtieth birthdays are a wonderful time, where one can look back on their years and celebrate life achievements as well as coming of age.

Careers, relationships and family are typically the key priorities at this age and tastes and personal styles have matured. A 30th birthday is a perfect time to give a thoughtful gift; you can choose fine jewellery appropriate for their tastes and lifestyle, helping them build a more mature jewellery "wardrobe" that will serve well into the future.

Personal style is the most important consideration when choosing a jewellery gift for 30th birthdays. Does the recipient prefer classic or trendy styles? Do they wear yellow or white (silver-tone) metals or do they have a favourite colour?

The celebrant's lifestyle is the second thing to consider. If their job is hands on, you may want to choose a necklace or earrings over a ring. If they wear business attire for work, consider simple, classic jewellery that will be appropriate for the office. If you're looking for a gift that they can wear on special occasions, then all you need to think about is their personal style and finding something you know the recipient would love.

Gorgeous gemstones

Say 'Happy 30th' with jewellery incorporating their birthstone or favourite gemstone colour. If they currently wear a piece of gemstone jewellery, such as a ruby necklace, think about adding a pair of ruby earrings to match and complete the set.

Fun fashion rings featuring gemstones are gorgeous and have come back into style and make a wonderful gift. For men, gemstones can be subtly incorporated into tie pins, tie bars and cufflinks to add a slight burst of colour to their look.

Gemstones also include diamonds and diamonds are always a great gift. Consider a gorgeous pair of diamond stud earrings or a diamond pendant that can be worn on daily or on special occasions.

Personalised jewellery

Personalised jewellery is brilliant way to celebrate someone turning 30. Engraving their name or nickname, birth date or year or a light-hearted message such as 'forever 29', makes the jewellery gift personal and unique to the receiver. We also have a range of initial necklaces and charms that could make a wonderful gift.

Gift of watches

Watches can be given to mark the passage of time or the 30th birthday milestone in a person's life. Watches are often worn for their designer brand name or as a fashion statement, so think about their favourite designer brand or personal style. Designs range from classic to fashion or sporty, and can be embellished with gemstones and mixed metals.

Pearl gifts

A pearl pendant or pearl earrings make a beautiful gift of elegance, so it's unlikely that you will go wrong with a gift of pearls. Some pearl jewellery features a modern design with coloured pearls for something different and unique.

A thoughtful gift, fine jewellery or a stylish watch will mark this milestone perfectly. It's a gift that will last a lifetime and will always remind the recipient of you.
