What does it mean to give a ring as a Christmas gift? Friendships are special relationships. The connection to friends is not simply given, as it is to siblings or cousins. A ring given to a friend can symbolize the infinity of friendship, bond and be a token of friendship. It is an expression of sharing life’s beautiful moments with each other as well as helping and being there for each other during difficult times. Giving a ring to family members has a similar meaning, as it symbolizes appreciation for each other and deep connection.

Gift-giving: how to hand over the gift

Whether engaged or not – Here we give some lovely ideas on how you could surprise someone with a ring this Christmas:

Choose the right ring in time for Christmas

Once the preparations are complete, it’s time to find the right model at the antique jewellery dealer. Giving a ring for Christmas always means choosing a perfectly fitting piece of jewellery for the person you are giving it to – and not choosing a model that only you will like in the first place.

You should orientate yourself on the taste of the person wearing the ring: If the person likes to wear extravagant pieces of jewellery, it is also advisable to choose an eye-catching model for the ring. If, on the other hand, the person wears rather plain jewellery or no jewellery at all, you should choose a more discreet model. Our suggestions: For example, a simple platinum ring, a memorial ring for men, a rose gold ring, a diamond ring or a classic engagement ring with sapphire.

Our antique jewelry offers charming rings for women and men’s rings for every occasion – it feels like giving jewelry of kings and queens.

Ring size of the person receiving the gift

You want to give a ring for Christmas and you don’t know the ring size?

To determine the ring size, it is advisable to take measurements on another ring of your beloved – inconspicuously, of course – by placing the ring on a piece of paper and tracing the inner edge of the ring. With this drawing you can then go to the antique jewelry dealer, they will know the appropriate ring size based on the inside diameter. If you are sure that the wearer will not notice, you can also take an existing ring.

Or ask a friend, a family member, if they could ask unobtrusively.
