10 Best Gift Ideas from Topaz Jewellers

This year we have compiled a collection where no matter what your budget is you can find something here which is deeply personal and unique. Each of these pieces are handmade and made locally in our workshop in Limerick City. We've explained the charm and allure of each piece and given some helpful links to purchase the products on our website. Without further ado, here is a definitive list of the best Christmas gifts, according to us. 


1. Name Necklace

There’s a certain artistic element to our name necklaces that you won’t get anywhere else. Each curve of the letters are engraved so smoothly they shine, each cut is hand pierced with precision using our saws and lastly they are given a perfect high shine on our polishing wheels.

Our handmade personalised name necklaces can be made in yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or silver. You can put any name or word you want to create your stylish name necklace using our script style font and can be made to any length you like (18inch being by far the most popular). These are so desirable this year and are the ideal gift for the stylish, fashion-conscious person in your life and are a beautiful forever piece.

Materials: Yellow Gold, White Gold, Rose Gold, Silver

Price Range: €80 - €280



2. Gypsy Ring

This is known as a Gypsy Ring which became popular around 1885 - 1990 (Late Victorian Era). Symbols like stars and crescents were popular design choices of this era and we see these elements carved into the gold around the outside of the gemstones in our gypsy rings. We often use diamonds along with feminine, bright gemstones like rubies, sapphires and emeralds in our designs as you can see in these images of our ruby and diamond gypsy ring.

This is a simple and easy to wear ring, with the possibility to select from an abundance of gemstones. The best part about these gypsy rings is their durability - the gemstone setting is a very wearable, everyday style. Unlike solitaire or pronged settings, the gemstone sits further into the band, so it's very secure and is less likely to be scratched or chipped. For the modern woman, this is ideal. You can easily wear your Gypsy ring to the shops, out with friends or typing on your computer screen.

If you’re worried about getting the size right just send us a message and we can send you out a ring sizer you can use at home if you want to be discrete or call in to be sized!

3. Modern Gold Initial Necklace

This Modern Gold Initial Necklace is a real classy piece that shot to fame back in 2016 when Meghan Markle stepped out in Toronto wearing an initial necklace with the letters ‘H’ and ‘M’ on it – and subsequently sent the world into a meltdown. With no words, just a simple gesture, the then Suits actress confirmed rumours that had been swirling for months – that she and Prince Harry were an item.

We took that idea and made something with even more quality and craftsmanship than the original. The chain is a flat curb chain with a silky feel and allows the letters to fall the right way every time. Our initial letters are hand-cut in our workshop and have discrete but heavy rings that attach seamlessly to the chain. These can be worn tight to the neck as your statement piece or simply as a stackable chain that will compliment all your other pieces too. We can make this piece in yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or silver and can make it with as little or as many letters as you like.


Materials: Yellow Gold, White Gold, Rose Gold

Price Range: €260 - €480

Our first time making this piece was earlier this year and since then it has been admired and sought after by so many. Every petal is thought about with each curve being carefully carved out.

Regardless of your age, complexion, style, or size, they simply fit and can add instant glow to your appearance.
