Get Your Christmas Orders In

With only seven weeks to go until Christmas, now is definitely the time to start thinking about shopping for your ideal Christmas gifts. While most items in our store can be created and sent within a week from the order date, please ensure you allow at least 14 days to receive your order, or longer, if you take into account the Christmas postal rush. You can of course opt for Express Post shipping if you think you are cutting it fine.

Author Peg Bracken stated “gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas” and a personalised gift wraps both time and love into a thoughtful Christmas package. Memories stand still and can be perfectly captured in a pendant or a pair of cufflinks showing just how much you truly care.

Browse your photographs: select an old memory or a favourite image captured throughout the year or better still, get snapping so you have a current and up to date image to display.

All of our pendants come with free gift-wrapping, cleaning cloth and also free standard postage Australia-wide. And we promise to treat your memories with care!

Christmas is a busy time for many families and individuals and often the lack of time can mean a last minute visit to the shops in which you select the first thing you see on the shelf to avoid the Christmas rush. You don’t need New Year to make a change when it comes to your bad shopping habits – shop early, select carefully and make sure you give a gift that the recipient will be proud to wear.

White Gold or Yellow?

When selecting a piece of jewellery you normally have to decide between silver or white gold and traditional yellow gold.  While it will ultimately be a choice based on your personal preference, there is more to take into account before making a decision.

When you choose what clothing to wear you always take into account what colours that you like and what suits your colouring.  You need to take those same things into account when choosing which colour metal to wear.

Cool skin tones look best with metals such as silver, platinum, and white gold.  Warm skin tones are better suited to yellow based metals such as yellow or rose gold.

Do you know which skin tone you have?

If I ask you what your favourite colours are, that is usually a good indicator.

People with cool skin tones usually prefer pinks, blues, purples and whites.  People with warm skin tones are likely to choose oranges, yellows, rusts and earthy colours.

If you are still not sure, have a look at the inside of your wrists.  What colour are the veins that you see?  If they look blue your skin is cool.  If they appear slightly green then your skin probably has a warm yellowish undertone.

If you are buying jewellery for someone else don’t forget to check which colour they currently wear.  There is no point buying a piece of jewellery in a metal that they are unlikely to wear.

Etched in Memories offers a choice of metals so that there is something to suit everyone.
