Unlocking the Deep-Rooted Meaning of Friendship Jewellery

  1. Expresses Appreciation - It's never too late to show your friends how much they mean to you, regardless of distance or time apart. With a piece of friendship jewellery, the wearer is constantly reminded of your deep connection.
  2. Commemorates Shared Experiences - Life's most memorable moments are often shared with friends. Friendship jewellery for adults can encapsulate the countless shared experiences, laughter-filled reunions, and deep conversations you've had together.
  3. Keeps Friendships Close - If your friends are scattered around the world, a piece of friendship jewellery can keep everyone close. Each time the wearer looks at the piece, she's reminded of the unwavering bond you share.

Now, you might be wondering - "But how do I go about selecting the perfect friendship jewellery?" Not to worry! Whether you're considering rings or earrings, this guide will help you navigate your way through the sea of options. Let's dive into it, shall we? 

Matching Styles for Friendship Jewellery 

When selecting the style of friendship jewellery, it's essential to pick something that embodies the personality of you and your friends. Are your styles classic and elegant or bohemian and chic? Or maybe it's a mix of both? 

The wonderful thing about friendship jewellery for adults is that it doesn't have to be identical. After all, no two friends are completely alike, and the same can be said about their tastes in jewellery. The key is to choose pieces that are cohesive in style. They don't need to be exact replicas but variations on a theme. 

Style Description
Classic Features timeless pieces that never go out of style. Think pearls and diamond studs.
Bohemian Characterised by earthy tones, gemstones, and free-spirited designs. Perfect for creative souls.
Mixed Metals Combining different metals in one piece, like silver and gold, for a modern, eclectic look.

Choosing the Right Metals 

The metal you choose plays a crucial role in the aesthetic and lifespan of your friendship jewellery. Whether it's silver, gold, or platinum, each metal presents its unique charm and durability. Here are some considerations when selecting the perfect metal for your friendship jewellery: 

Is it hypoallergenic? Some individuals are allergic to certain metals. Ensure the choice of metal does not cause a skin reaction.

What is the budget? While gold and platinum tend to be more expensive, they also last longer. If budget is a concern, consider our Under $250 collection or silver or stainless steel for a more affordable option. 

Once you've established a budget, selecting the perfect 'friendship jewellery for adults' comes down to understanding the different properties, advantages, and disadvantages of each metal type. Different metals offer distinct aesthetics and durability, so it's essential to match the metal to the wearer's lifestyle, tastes, and daily routine. Let's look at each one. 

Type of Metal Properties Advantages Disadvantages
Gold Shiny, warm tones, timeless Durable, malleable, gentle on skin High cost, can scratch easily
Platinum Heavy, durable, silvery white Strong, hypoallergenic, retains lustre Most expensive, harder to work with
Silver Soft, lustrous, lighter than gold Affordable, easy to work with, versatile Tarnishes, scratches easily, may not suit all skin tones
Stainless Steel Strong, bright, silvery-grey Very affordable, hypoallergenic, hardy Lacks precious metal status, not as lustrous as gold or silver
"Your choice of jewellery not only tells a story about your style, but also about your life and character. So, take the time to find pieces that truly resonate with you." - Lauren Conrad

Mixing Metals 

Whilst we generally advise to stick to one metal type for a consistent look, a growing trend in friendship jewellery Australia is the mixing of metals. A playful mixture of gold, silver, and rose gold can create a layered, eclectic look that boasts uniqueness and personality. If you and your friend enjoy stepping outside of fashion norms, this may be a fun option for you to consider! 

  • Tip: If you're mixing metals, we suggest maintaining a consistent style or theme. This could be through matching gemstones, motifs, or shapes.

Whether you're entranced by the eternal glow of gold, love the lunar lustre of silver, or value the metallic strength of stainless steel, the right choice of metal plays a pivotal role in manifesting your friendship in a beautiful, meaningful piece of jewellery.

3. Engraved Friendship Ring: Have you considered a ring that carries a special engraving? This could be a quote that tugs at your heartstrings, your friend's initials, or even a memorable date symbolic of your friendship. How's that for a wearable memento?
