Father’s Day Gifts

Perhaps you are well aware that Father’s Day (September 7) is drawing closer and it is only fair to give your old man something for the efforts of bringing you up. Usually, it is the mothers who get flowers and nicely-packed gifts, so getting something for dad on his special day will be a great way to show him your feelings, gratitude and acknowledgment. If you are having doubts about the nature of the gift, however, some of the options below may draw your attention – all of them can be customised to remind your dad of a great moment you had together.

To start with, you can choose from a variety of cufflinks and pendants available in our online store. Both options are available in a variety of forms and sizes, so make sure you check out all the categories and find the one your dad likes the most. In the case of the cufflinks, they can be oval or square. As for the pendants, they come in various forms, including ID tags, ovals and rectangles, as well as square and round pendants.

If you have decided to go for a pendant, you will need to carefully select the material it is made of. The options you have are stainless steel (it won’t change its colour and doesn’t look too shiny), gold plated (it is affordable and looks very stylish), sterling silver (an elegant version that won’t draw too much attention) or 9ct white or yellow gold (it will perfectly match with a gold bracelet or ring). Once you have decided your choice of material, you can then look to customise the gift.

The good news is that both the pendant and the cufflinks can be customised with an image and text. Therefore, pick a great picture of you and your dad enjoying the company of each other and add a text message that will express how special he is to you. If one image is not enough, you can add a second one on the back of the pendant or etch different images on each of the cufflinks. Make sure you choose the picture carefully – your dad will have this precious moment in front of his eyes whenever he wears them!

If you can’t decide which item to choose – the pendent or the cufflinks, you can do well to combine them and create a matching set. As for the pendant, you can request a key chain added to it before dispatching, and for the stainless steel models we can offer a corresponding ball or curb chain, so that your dad will be able to wear it around his neck. All our items can be giftwrapped, so you don’t need to worry about wrapped them yourself.

Remember that you need to place your order very soon if you want the item to arrive on time. If you have already made up your mind and would like to make your dad happy on September 7, visit our website now and choose from the many different options described above. All our gifts offer free shipping in Australia, so all you need to do to create another special memory for you and your dad is choose, customise and order – we will take care of the rest!

The Timeless Beauty Of Yellow Gold

For most folks in the world, the word gold is synonymous with the words wealth, security, strength, value and luxury. Unlike other metals, the shine of yellow gold will never tarnish or fade. Gold can also be alloyed with other metals to increase its strength when it is worked into shapes and designs.

Due to these special properties and its rarity, gold has been used as a medium of exchange as well as the metal of choice for jewellery and other works of art. Since ancient times, it is a substance that has remained highly valued, even in times of war and famine.

Given its lasting appeal, is it any wonder that gold remains the time honored choice when we wish to profess our love for one another or recognise others for possessing the virtuous qualities that most of us value: honour, loyalty, and courage?

While gold can be alloyed with other metals to change its hue from yellow to white or rose, the original shiny and attractive yellow gold remains the traditional, endearing choice for most.
