You can choose charms, chains and elements to make your 40th birthday gift even more special.

Initials make it personal

If you’d like to create a bespoke piece, then look at our Francesca Necklaces. We make your necklace just for you from your selection of the charms we offer. Choose three charms: one stone for a stunning burst of colour, one initial disc and one other charm. The Francesca necklace usually comes on a satellite chain but as with most of our necklaces, you are able to upgrade to a versatile adjustable chain.

If you’d rather keep it simple but would like to give a necklace with initial, then check out our disc necklaces, also available in silver and gold vermeil with a choice of chains. These make a brilliant layering piece so if the recipient likes to layer necklaces, then this could be perfect for her!

Our Bestselling Gold Filled Jewellery

Our Gold filled jewellery is super popular as a 40th birthday present. Gold filled jewellery is where gold has been bonded onto base metal in a process which is different from just plating. It wears well but we wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who is allergic to base metal jewellery. However, we have a collection of necklaces and bracelets all available to be made by us at different lengths so if you’re looking for a longer bracelet or shorter necklace for example, then we can make what you would like. All the necklaces in this collection are fantastic for layering as you can clip the clasp into any link in the chain to vary the length of the necklace. These are really versatile and useful pieces to add to any jewellery collection.
