So if you’re stuck on what to buy them, we’re going to share some of our favourite but more unusual and rare pieces of jewellery, that may have not come up on their Pinterest board, but deserve a spot in any jewellery aficionados collection, from vintage engagement rings, to sweetheart rings and unique brooches.
