Its a friends significant birthday. She bought me a charm bracelet for my birthday, so I wanted to buy her one back.

Saw this and liked it- but I don't really do jewellery- is it nice? here

Thomas sabo also do a turquoise bracelet if that's any help here

Thank you Mrs!

this one.

Looking at it you have to add initials... On [[ this ]] one you don't.

I prefer the white, think it's a little safer.

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 21:04:44

Do you lot prefer the grey or white pearl?

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 21:03:48

Thank you all, I might go for it then!

Maraki- the Thomas Sabo one would be a safe choice - I am considering that too! (Yes, I got the gift box with mine- it is lovely!)

I really appreciate all your thoughts, was half thinking people would see the pic ad say 'bleugh' or something- it is very personal thing, jewellery...

I like the freshwater pearl bracelet, OP! I don't think you have to add an initial but I think the charms look nice.

I was given the white pearl Thomas Sabo bracelet for my 40th and I love it! It costs £30 and comes in a beautiful box, your friend can buy whatever charms she likes? Or you can get her the black one (which will match the black heart she loves) or the silver chain one for £20? The good thing with the Thomas Sabo bracelets is that the charms are interchangeable and I love the boxes they come in!!!

My husband bought me that bracelet for Mothers' day a couple of years ago. I love it and often get compliments about it. I think she'd love it!

I ummed and ahhed about that very same bracelet for my friend who's just had a baby. Was going to get the initials of her two children as the charms, but in the end I decided against it. Agree with the posters above who say jewellery's a personal choice, and I decided it was too expensive to pay for something that may not be right.

I think I'll have to ask her for a hint, thank you all for your ideas, will keep thinking, I guess there's never a nice easy answer e.g. 'Buy this- everyone likes them' grin

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 09:56:46

Frogman- she bought me an initial bracelet, so guessing she likes them!

PretzelTime Thu 21-Mar-13 09:56:15

I think it would be safe to buy her a bracelet like the ones you linked to OP. Something classic with some charms on but maybe not initials.

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 09:56:11

The mirror is nice, keyring probably not really her kind of thing, I think!

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:54:50

Don't understand that you think a keyring is impersonal confused It's a very personal item. People generally don't want their initials over things (unless they are about 9 years old)

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:52:58

A personalised paper weight

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:50:34

A silver plated handbag mirror

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:47:58

This is quite a nice stylish stainless steel keyring and a good price. John Lewis have a few nice Georg Jenson ones

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 09:46:41

The keyring I meant.. x posted.

Want to spend about £30ish, its her 40th birthday, so going to get other bits too.

Zoflora- that was my thinking- get similar to what a person gets you! Hate birthday taste-of-others style test!

StairsInTheNight Thu 21-Mar-13 09:43:57

Hmm... seems a bit impersonal? Argh!

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:41:28

I agree with Zoflora - it's a nice bracelet, I don't think anyone could not like it (apart from the initials). Plain is best and much more stylish.

Frogman Thu 21-Mar-13 09:40:28

This one looks nice but may be too expensive How much do you want to spend?

zoflora Thu 21-Mar-13 09:39:32

I was about to post that the bracelet is perfectly nice but spoiled by the initials/letters hanging from it.
But - if she got you one then maybe, as you say, she likes that kind of thing.
