Holiday Gift Guide

November 24, 2017

Nothing makes a more intimate and eternal gift than fine jewellery. At Lizunova we have a fabulous selection to choose from that will cater for a wide range of personal style and budget. Here we will make some suggestions to help you select the ideal gift for your special someone.

Gifts to $500

If you are looking for a stylish gift for a girlfriend, sister or daughter who is fashion forward and up with the latest trends then we have the perfect gifts to delight her. One of our signature earring styles, Line, is the embodiment of minimalism and can be worn with absolutely everything. If your girlfriend is the outdoor sporty type, then Line / Shortis perfect and looks amazing with a summer tan in silver or white gold. If she’s more the sophisticate then Line / Long will add panache to her wardrobe. These divine long earrings softly swing as you move. Sterling silver looks great on blondes or brunettes with cool skin tones.

Gifts to $1000

Everyone loves diamonds and imagine being able to give beautiful handcrafted diamond jewellery for under a $1000! We have some gorgeous suggestions in this category. Firstly, our brand new Initial pendants are graced with a sparkling diamond and are available in 9ct and 18ct gold (white, yellow and rose). The octagon setting is timeless and elegant, and as the pendant features your loved one’s initial it makes a highly personalised gift. Our classic Geometric Round / Diamond earrings and necklace are delicate and classic and would make a superb gift. This minimalist style is very versatile and is equally at home with a business suit, a smart casual outfit or a favourite pair of jeans.

Gifts to $2000

If you are looking for an elegant surprise to give on Christmas morning then our Aqua earrings in white gold or rose gold would be just the thing. These simple and timeless hook earrings feature kyanite, an exotic gemstone in a lovely neutral teal blue that works with so many outfit colours. These earrings will suit most people: the white gold Aqua earrings would suit a blue-eyed blonde with a cool skin tone and the rose gold Aqua earrings would be great for olive or warm honey skinned ladies with dark hair. If diamonds will put a smile on her face then our Half Moon necklace in 9ct white gold with a round brilliant cut diamond will be a winner. This gorgeous necklace was inspired by images of the moon over Manhattan and is part of our New York New York collection. Another versatile piece that can be worn casually with jeans or her favourite LBD.

Gifts over $2000

If you want to give a really special Christmas gift this year we have some spectacular jewels that will be treasured forever. Diamonds delight all women and our Hudson design, available as diamond  studsdrop earrings and a diamond pendant  necklace, is a fabulous choice. Set in 18ct white gold with top quality diamonds, this elegant design is an enduring classic. White gold has been the most popular metal choice for several years and is the best metal for enhancing the beauty of white diamonds. However, if your lady prefers a different gold tone, we are happy to make any of the Hudson range in rose or yellow gold. If your partner loves coloured gems, our stunning coloured gem rings will dazzle her. Some suggestions are Embrace / Tourmaline for lovers of warm tones and indicolite tourmaline  Atlantic for cool beauties. Pearls are another jewellery favourite and our handmade Australian  South Sea pearl studs in rose gold and the white gold  Tahitian grey pearl earrings with teal tourmalines are contemporary classics. Both earring styles are quite classic but not staid… perfect for the modern woman who loves to look polished. Finally, if you want to give something uniquely Australian that will delight forever, our Aurora necklace with crystal opal from Andamooka and diamonds will electrify with its spectacular play of colour.

Time to Propose?

If you are a true romantic at heart and would like to propose on Christmas morning we have some gorgeous alternative engagement rings for the woman with strong individual style. Our glittering new Galaxy ring is sensational and definitely for those who adore stylish diamond rings. This ring can be stacked with a twin after she says “I do”. If she would like a classic with a twist, our Lumiere engagement ring is set with a saturated blue, cushion-cut aquamarine on a delicate diamond-set 18k white gold band. This ring would suit a red head or blonde with warm toned fair skin or would look great on a brunette with olive or dark skin. If your fiancée-to-be has more traditional taste, we can custom make a bespoke ring with a diamond or coloured gem as the central stone. Rose gold is a timeless beauty and we love the combination of grey spinel and black or white diamonds.

For Him

If you are looking for something unique for the man in your life, giving fine jewellery cufflinks in white gold or gold set with gemstones would make a superb gift. Our sculptural Half Moon cufflinks come in  white gold, and in white gold set with grey spinels… super stylish! If you want to give him a masculine and modern looking ring then look no further than our Linestyle. Made in palladium, a member of the platinum group, this minimalist design ring would look great worn on the index or ring finger. If your man is fashion conscious, a ring in black zirconium would be the perfect accessory to accent his wardrobe.

We hope you have the most marvellous holiday season and please contact us if we can assist with your jewellery needs this holiday season!

Ring sizes

We use Australian ring size measurements, which are in an alphabetical range from A-Z.

As your fingers contract and expand due to the temperature, humidity, exercise, etc, your ring will fit on your finger tighter or looser. Your ring should fit comfortably and you need to find a balance between too big and too small. It is recommended that you should have to push your ring on tightly over your knuckle and it should spin slightly around the base of your finger. There should be some resistance when the ring is taken off – this will help to keep the ring on when your fingers are cold or wet. The correct size is the one that you feel the most confident and comfortable with.

We suggest that you size the finger you intend to wear your ring on at room temperature – this should provide you with a size that should be close to perfect most of the time.

Top-heavy rings can tend to spin on your finger, as the base of your finger is usually thinner than your knuckle. We suggest when sizing your finger for a top-heavy ring, that you err on the tighter side, rather than a loose fit. This will mean that the ring will stay on the top of your finger and it will ultimately be more comfortable to wear.

If you’re choosing a wide ring, you will tend to go up a size. There is more surface area on a wider ring and therefore more metal to grip to your finger.

If you are interested in a ring that is 5mm or wider, we suggest going up a size (one size larger than the sizing gauge). We suggest going up another size if the ring you are interested in is 9mm or larger (two sizes larger than the sizing gauge).

If you are buying a ring as a gift for someone, we recommend that you measure the inside diameter of a ring the person you’re buying the gift for, regularly wears on the finger your gift will be worn on.

Measuring your finger

If you do not know your ring size you can use this guide to obtain an approximate measurement.

Before measuring the finger on which the ring you’re purchasing will be worn, please ensure the following:

The number that lines up with edges of the opening is the ‘interior circumference’. Please note this number and then refer to our Ring Size Chart to choose the correct ring size.

If you do not know your ring size you can use this guide to obtain an approximate measurement.

If you have a ring that is worn on the finger you need sizing, print out the ring size guide (take care to print it at 100%), and place the existing ring over the circles. Measure the inside of the ring against the outside of the circle. If you can hardly see the black line which goes around each circle, you have chosen the right size. Compare the ring to the adjacent circles to check that you definitely have the right size.

You can then double check this measurement by measuring the inside diameter of the ring, and matching that against the ring diameter measurements shown.

Alternatively, if you don’t have a ring available, you can measure the finger itself to obtain an approximate ring size. You can do so by wrapping a piece of string or thin strip of paper around the finger on which you wish to wear the ring, marking it with a pen where it overlaps. Measure the piece of string with a ruler to obtain the circumference of the finger, and compare that to the European Size measurement shown on the chart. We would recommend that in order to obtain the most accurate measurement when taking your ring size in this way, you do so at the end of the day when the finger is at its largest, and not when your hands are unusually cold as this would lead to a smaller ring size.
