Men’s Mechanical Fossil Watch with DIamond
There are heaps of great things about buying jewelry as a birthday gift – its longevity, the fact that it is so personal, and the fact that you can never have too much … apart from when your loved ones don’t wear jewelry! Watches are a great way to incorporate the traditional benefits of jewelry gifts for people that aren’t jewelry-wearers, whether they are men or women. We’ve had some exciting new additions to our watch range this year – check out our watch gift suggestions below for October-born men and women.
Wenger Ranger Military Watch
Citizen Aqualand Promaster Dive Watch
Citizen Gold Tone Men’s Watch
Citizen Eco-Drive Ladies Watch
DKNY Black Fashion Watch
Citizen Diamond Stiletto Eco-Drive Watch
DKNY Crossover Style Two Tone Ladies Watch
Traditionally, there are supposed to be two different types of people born in October – the sociable, graceful, quality-obsessed Librans, who are forever going out, and the intensely private Scorpios, powerfully emotional, driven towards success and mastery of whatever they are interested in, and more than a little mysterious! Scorpio men will adore the blank, swallowing intensity of the black face Fossil watch at the beginning of the article. The diamond in the face is set over a tiny exposed area of the mechanics, creating a clever and stylish blend of class and technicality. The powerful look is more than skin deep – this watch is actually 100m water resistant, and the band is tough stainless steel.
Libra’s signature color is pink – which you won’t find very often incorporated into men’s jewelry! Wenger make it a modern yet masculine statement, and the durability of the watch shows that its anything but ‘girly’ . Wenger makes the original Swiss Army knife, and uses that same precision and strength in their watches. This watch features a luminous marker and hands, mineral crystal glass and Swiss quartz movement, and is water resistant to 50m. Wenger backs all of their products with a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty, also.
Scorpio men are notoriously intense, and the overwhelming reds and blacks of the Citizen Aqualand Promaster diving watch at right will be perfect for him. It is not only the color scheme which suits the Scorpio sensibilities, though. These guys tend to do something to death, when they want to get good at it – so if you have a diving or water-sports oriented Scorpio, they’ll need a watch built for the most extreme conditions! The watch has an water sensor an auto-diving mode, is water-resistant to 200m, and comes with the standard 5 Year Promaster warranty. It has the added bonus of incorporating Eco-Drive technology, a patented Citizen solar cell invention that allows the watch to keep working for 5 years, even in the dark.
Libran males won’t care about what a watch can do, though … only what it is made of and what it looks like! The classical, clean lines of the gold Citizen watch at right make a quality look easily affordable for Librans. The all-gold look is a shining, elegant one that fineness-driven Librans will adore, The watch is splash resistant and made of durable stainless steel, and despite its classy look, is even approved for use in the mines!
Scorpio women have that same drive towards privacy, the same intensity, passion and mystery that the men do. We love the Citizen Eco-Drive black-face watch at right for Scorpio women, with the contrast of hard, intense diamonds on black enamel. The band is a slim, conservative silver tone stainless steel, and this watch also features Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology. You can get it in a men’s version, as well, and also with a gold band if she would prefer. It has a convenient push button buckle, and a Citizen 3 year warranty for peace of mind. Remember to check out the price section on all our Citizen watches (as if you’d forget, I know ) – we have a special partnership that allows us to offer some pretty hefty discounts off recommended retail!
The color scheme is opposite to the watch above, but we couldn’t go past the slim, dark, and gorgeously fashionable tones of the DKNY watch at right for Scorpio girls, also. DKNY watches, as with most of our fashion ranges, are extremely affordable, for the designer style they offer. This model keeps it simple, with just two digits on the face, and comes with no extra features … apart from New York style and quality! There is a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty on the model, and it ships for free to you, no matter where in the world you are.
Libran ladies love to have high quality items, and will no doubt wear the Citizen Stiletto Eco-Drive watch at right to its death! The design has an inventive radial balance, as well as a side to side symmetry, with the mother of pearl border around the face. There are twelve genuine diamonds set one each quarter of the dial, underneath ultra-tough sapphire crystal glass. It is water-resistant, and features Eco-Drive technology as well as the Citizen 3 year warranty.
Contrasting though it is, the DKNY crossover style watch at right is another great idea for balance-obsessed Librans. The gold and silver arms flow, move and then equal out in the design, and also find a color-based harmony with the mother of pearl dial. The face has the signature DKNY two-digit look. The band is stainless steel, although made with silver and gold tones. There is also a little bonus for you, the gift-gived, in the free shipping .

Pandora Gold Centre Pink Murano Glass Charm
Pandora charms are one of our most popular items, and with good reason! The modern-day version of the charm bracelet has an inimitable style, a mix of classicism, individuality, and artistic flair. There is something to suit every budget within the Pandora range, while satisfying a need for quality with every single piece. The repeating motifs throughout the range mean that even if you don’t choose jewelry from the same collection to wear together, you’ll always have a well-coordinated look. So if you’ve got a special person to buy a birthday gift for this October, how do you incorporate all of these benefits into a neat little package for them?! Check out our suggestions below.
Pandora Black/White on Gold Murano Glass Charm
Pandora Lion with Yellow CZ Eyes Charm
Pandora Red Enamel Hearts Dangle Charm
Night Sky Pandora Inspirations Bracelet
African Safari Inspirations Bracelet
Diamond Golden Heart Bracelet
Pandora Libra Zodiac Charm
Pandora Silver Anklet with Gold Heart
Pandora Diamond Gold Flower Earrings
Pandora cameo drop earrings
October is a month of fineness, grace, creativity and passion. The two ‘typical’ personalities for October born girls are the Libran and Scorpio ones. Libran lasses generally aim for balance in their lives, preferring grace and quality to anything else. You can usually find them in the company of good friends … or just anyone that will talk to them! Scorpio are more private, but they are said to be intensely emotional, creative, passionate and a little mysterious. We started looking around in the Gold Charms section of the Pandora beads for Libran gifts, and found the charm at the beginning of the article, with its ‘heart of gold’, and incorporation of the signature color for Libra, pink, all around the outside. Murano glass is an Italian invention, which incorporates the colors and patterns within the glass, instead of painting on top of it. The petal design on the outside of the charm does come in other colors, including orange and deep pink with gold centers.
Scorpios will also appreciate the warmth and passion of yellow gold in their Pandora jewelry – but the mysterious, intense black of the matching charm at right will really set their souls on fire. The black, white and gold together look dramatic and beautiful, and your mysterious Scorpio girl will love it!
Your intense, passionate Scorpio girl will probably relate just as strongly to the completely different charm below the black one – the lion with yellow cubic zirconia for eyes at right. Yes, he looks a little scary … but you know that your Scorpio chick is not shy and retiring, and she probably enjoys the fact that he’s so out there! The lion is on a sterling silver base, and with affordable cubic zirconias as an adornment, this is a very budget-friendly gift.
Your Libran lass is used to the finer things in life … and she no doubt likes to feel a little princessly! Indulge her with the crowned hearts of this red enamel dangle charm from the Pandora bead range. The symmetry of the charm will suit the balanced nature of her personality, while the price tag will suit your pocket! The crowns are 14ct yellow gold, while the main bead is polished, rather than the traditional looking oxidized, sterling silver.
If you’d like to start your girl off running with the Pandora bracelet and necklace range, check out the Inspirations pages. You’ll find some awesome choices for Scorpios, like the Night Sky inspirations bracelet at right. The charms here are set against the unusual oxidized silver bracelet base, and include an onyx bead, two Murano glass charms, two black and white enamel charms, as well as a couple of silver charms and spacers. Your Scorpio girl no doubt enjoys the privacy and peace of night time, and with black as a signature color, you can hardly go past this one!
Scorpios are intense, quiet and powerful … just like the African continent, to draw a broad but integrally connected parallel! The African Safari Inspirations bracelet at right is a completely different, but equally suitable choice for Scorpio girls. The bracelet is a standard sterling silver one, and there is a giraffe, elephant and giant turtle charm to pop on, all from the affordable silver beads range. You can even swap the elephant charm for the newer ‘baby elephant’ one if you wish.
Libran girls love balance and quality, as we may have mentioned a couple of times! The singular, elegant look of the diamond gold heart Inspirations bracelet at right is perfect for them. The 14ct gold bead is definitely an investment, but your Libra will love it. We do have layby available on site, so if not for this birthday, keep it in mind for next year!
If all this decoding of styles, symbols and colors is a bit much for you, there are simpler options within the Pandora range. There are birthstone beads for the different months, with a tourmaline one substituting for opal in October. There is also a range of zodiac sign beads, made of budget-friendly sterling silver. The Libra one is shown at right, but of course the full range is available. Check in on these early – we tend to sell out as one starsign’s birthday approaches!
We mentioned the Scorpio penchant for privacy, and one way to indulge that is to give here the gift of jewelry that only she can see. Pendants can be hidden under clothes, as can bracelets, but anklets are one of the most private forms of jewelry that you can buy. Scorpio girls will enjoy the warmth, passion and emotion of the gold heart design anklet at right – alternatively, you can purchase a plain anklet and pop one of the standard charms on.
While it is all well and good to have balance ‘within’ a piece, Librans like things to be equal and well-rounded – earrings make great gifts for them, as no side of the body is ‘favored’! The diamond gold flower earrings at right will also satisfy the Libran need for quality, with their gorgeous diamonds and durable 14ct yellow gold. The polished sterling silver base provides contrast, and also helps keep the price out of the clouds.
There are not many motifs in jewelry that are more mysterious than the cameo. Who was that lady? Where did she come from? Is she alive, or not? We will never know … and that is so thrilling to Scorpio girls! The Pandora cameo earrings at right incorporate the Scorpio signature color, and also satisfy the old mystery-urge. The upper gemstone is onyx, and the base for the cameo is oxidized sterling silver, in keeping with the traditional look.
The Pandora range has absolutely exploded in recent months and years – there is a huge variety of different jewelry types, styles and ideas to be had within the range. Keep browsing – pay special attention to the earrings section for Librans, and the toe rings and anklets for Scorpios.

Emporio Armani Silver Watch
Nowadays (thankfully!), men don’t have to be on the fringe of society to enjoy having a facial, to be playing a practical joke to wear pink (or any color other than blue or black), or be a pirate to enjoy wearing jewelry! Husbands, sons, fathers and boyfriends will all enjoy the benefits of jewelry as a birthday gift just as much as their female counterparts do. It is long-lasting, personal, sweet and in most cases is beyond fashions of the moment. Today we are looking at our hand-picked November birthday gift suggestions for the man in your life … whatever form he takes.
Men’s and Ladies’ Two Piece Interlocking Pendant
Stainless Steel and Black Cord Bracelet
Men’s Zen Symbol Eont Wood Pendant
Citizen Aqualand Men’s Eco-Drive Dive Watch
Two of a Kind Men’s Pendant by Inori
Tungsten and Black Ceramic Ring
The Emporio Armani watch at the beginning of the article is new in store, and is a great choice for Scorpio men, born in the first half of the month. These guys tend towards the secretive and conservative end of the spectrum … but they are definitely worth knowing … whether they are your husband, boyfriend, son or just a platonic friend, they always form intense bonds and have strong feelings for you. This watch actually comes from our jewelers’ handpicked suggestions for birthday gifts for husbands on site. It is a slick designer item, with a silver tone stainless steel band with a high polish, a classically sized case and strap (38mm and 28mm respectively), and it comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
Sagittarians share the month with Scorpio, and are born from the 23rd onwards. These guys are freedom loving, yet passionate … spiritual, yet practical. They adore travel and adventure, so need tough materials in their jewelry, like the unscratchable stainless steel of the his and hers pendant at right. Like Scorpios, Sagittarians form strong emotional bonds to their loved ones – this suggestion comes from our Gift Ideas for Boyfriends page. It includes two stainless steel chains, so you can each wear your half while your Sagittarian guy is off conquering the world, and still feel near to each other.
A jewelry gift is a lovely idea for your son’s birthday, as well as romantic partners and Dads. This cord and stainless steel bracelet has a young, carefree feel, and incorporates Scorpio’s signature color (black, for intensity and secretiveness!). The maximum length of the bracelet is 21cm, but it has several loops at the end which allow him to shorten it slightly – it can grow as your son does. It is also extremely wallet-friendly, at less than AU$75, with the added bonus of free international shipping.
Sagittarians are known for being spiritual beings – they love their freedom, but have plenty of well-grounded faith. Go for esoteric symbolism if you’re looking for a birthday gift for your Sagittarian Dad – this Zen symbol pendant with eont wood and silver is a great pick. It measures just 2cm from top to bottom, so he can safely wear it on all of his adventures without worrying about it getting in the way. The piece includes a black rubber cord with the pendant and ships for free no matter where in the world your freedom-loving Dad has made it to. So what you see on that price tag is exactly what you get – none of those internet hidden extras!
Your Sagittarian man, whether he is your husband, boyfriend, son or Dad, is likely to find peace and adventure together in a neat little package … in the ocean. Despite being a fire sign, these guys love diving. Citizen are the top name in tough, reliable dive watches, and this Aqualand model is new in store. This professional diver’s watch is water resistant to 200m, has a depth display to 50m, and an automatic water sensor. It also has a 50m stopwatch, and non-reflective coating to ensure he is able to see it under water.
Inori is one brand that matches especially well with your Sagittarian guy, who is very into romance and passion. These jewelry designers have an obvious soft spot for matters of the heart also … the Inori pendant at right is named ‘Two of a Kind’. The two halves of the pendant may not be the same, but they complement and complete each other. Nawwh! What a union . The pendant itself is only 2cm long, so can be worn to work without overwhelming his professional image. It is a stand-alone item – go for the Inori ball chains (very reasonable priced), they are a great stylistic match.
For active, adventurous men like Sagittarians, their choice of jewelry styles really is limited. Bracelets have a tendency to catch on things, and pendants will keep coming out of active, bouncing shirts! Rings are a good solution, and this 8mm tungsten and black ceramic fashion ring features an adventurous combination of materials. Tungsten carbide and ceramic are also two of the most scratch-resistant metals in jewelry making, so he can happily wear this on his every adventure, without worrying about damaging it. No excuses! Have his finger size measured based on an 8mm band width – this may need extra room over thinner bands.
There is an abundance of men’s jewelry in store at the moment, from hot to very cool, professional to off-the-wall, and tough to delicate. Keep browsing now for the perfect gift – either check out our general men’s jewelry gifts section, or look for something more targeted in the gift ideas for husbands or gift ideas for sons sections.
Personalized Pandora Bracelets
We are firm believers in jewelry as a birthday gift … and a Christmas gift, Mother’s Day gift, Easter gift, ‘I love you’ gift, ‘I’m sorry’ gift, and general purpose credit builder! But we do often hear people say that they aren’t sure if jewelry is a little impersonal to give as a gift – if they shouldn’t get something that is more ’specific’ to the their loved one. Sometimes buying jewelry for someone else can be like buying their clothes – there are a hundred million factors that go into a decision, and you can’t cover them all. That’s why we’re here to show you how you can dodge that enormous responsibility (!), and find a jewelry gift that is very ’specific’ to the person you are buying for. Here are our personalized gift picks for September birthdays!
Pandora Blue Flowers Murano Glass Charm
Pandora Pink/Red Flowers Murano Glass Charm
Pandora Baby Elephant Charm
Pandora Gold Queen Bee
Pandora Large Size Bubbles Mix and Match Earring Hooks
Pandora Mix n Match Earrings Amazonite Attachments
Nomination Gingerbread People Link
Nomination Butterfly Link with Yellow CZ
Titanium and Gold Dora Brand Ring
Solar Red Gold and Titanium Ring
You are probably already familiar with Pandora bracelets – they have become the market leader in a worldwide resurgence of charm bracelets for big girls as well as little girls! You can see some of the possible designs at the beginning of the article, but if you’re looking for a gift that can be personalized, less will be more. That way you can give your loved one the gift of choice … the most thoughtful one of all! Why not start off with a little something from you, though – the Murano glass beads at right are selected for September born girls. Blue is the signature color of Virgos, those cool, reserved, neat and tidy perfectionsist born from the 1st to 21st of September. Librans are born from the 22nd onwards, and the signature color for these sociable, graceful, best-of-everything souls is pink. They’ll love the vibrancy of the pink bead with red flowers underneath Virgo’s blue one.
Virgos are cool and reserved – they don’t tend to say too much, and they are also very loyal in love and friendship. The elephant is a perfect symbol for them (if they can get past the fact that these sweet, intelligent animals are usually covered in mud!), which is why we picked the baby elephant charm for Virgo gals. It is from the Pandora sterling silver collection, so is one of the more affordable Pandora charm options. It has been extremely popular since it was introduced only a few months ago!
Librans love to have the best in life – and Pandora knows just how to give it to them, with intricately molded, top quality charms like the gold Queen Bee at right. Librans are supposed to be quite sociable souls – and there is nobody that loves a party more than the Queen Bee! The gold base for the charm is 14ct, and if the price tag frightens you off, you can get just a little of the same luxury for a fraction of the price with the Queen Bee in the Silver and Gold section.
The personalizability of the Pandora range is now applicable to earrings, as well as necklaces and bracelets, with the newly launched range of Mix n Match Earrings. You can either purchase a single pair of hooks, and pop all of your different attachments on there (saving a fair bit of money in the process), or grab several different hooks for all the attachments and … mix and match! We chose the bubbles hooks for Virgo girls, who are like the ocean – deep, calm and sometimes unfathomable! They match perfectly with the amazonite attachments at right, with their hues of sunny summer days at the beach and silver bubbles to match! Even with hook and attachment sold separately, you’ll often find that the Mix n Match earrings are more cost effective than traditional all in one earrings.
Nomination bracelets are the sleeker, ingenious Italian version of the olden-style charm bracelet. They are put together with a novel linking system that makes them both much lighter and more compact that ordinary Pandora bracelets, but just as personalizable. Libran girls will love the gingerbread people link to the right. Being around other people is their lifeblood, so you couldn’t possibly give them a link with just one person on it! The gingerbread people link can be found under the ‘Fun’ section of the Gold category on the Nomination bracelet builder, suiting Libra’s upscale sensibilities!
Alternatively, you could go for something like the yellow cubic zirconia butterfly link at right … these social butterflies of women are always flitting from one group to another. The cubic zirconia give the link that extra bit of sparkle and life, while the standard silver backing helps keep the price down for you. These can flutter into her heart in a huge variety of colors – choose from white, red, green, pink, lilac, blue, light blue, yellow, orange and black cubic zirconias. Check out what they look like in the Animals section of the Cubic Zirconia category.
You might already be familiar with the amazing number of things you can do with titanium rings on site at Gilletts – from choosing the band shape, width, and contrast metals, to personalizing the color of the titanium, adding gemstones, and putting on personal engravings. In fact, all of that choice can seem a little intimidating! If you check through the pre-made titanium rings section, though, you’ll find many more different styles of ring. Some of them have only a few personalization options (like finish, band style and band width), others have the full gamut of alternatives. The Dora brand ring at right is a great example – with this ring you can choose whether to use white, yellow or rose gold for the contrast metal (we recommend the cool silver tones of white gold for Virgos, and rose gold for Librans as it includes their signature metal, copper). You can also choose the finish for the center section, and add an engraved message (up to 20 characters) for no extra charge. The Dora brand is usually associated with wedding rings, but this piece is stylish, versatile, and cost effective.
When you personalize a titanium ring from base with our on-site options, you don’t get the choice of having two band styles in one, like you have with the solar red gold and titanium ring at right … but you have just about every other option with this ring! With the red gold edges incorporating Libra’s signature metal, this is a great choice for scales-born guys or girls. You can choose your ring width, from 3.5 to 9mm, metal type, finish of the metals, any gemstones as well as their setting types. Some of these options even cut down the price of the ring!
There isn’t the surprise factor with personalized jewelry that there is with gifts you’ve chosen yourself … but there is the guarantee that the piece will be loved and treasured! Keep browsing in the Pandora jewelry pages, the Nomination bracelet builder, and among the titanium rings to get more ideas for a personalized September birthday gift … and if you need nay help ordering products, we are just behind the Live Help link at the right of screen, during all AU business hours.

Pandora Scorpio Zodiac Bead
One of the most common requests we get in regard to jewelry is for something that is ‘different to what everyone else has’. Especially in the noughties, with a growing world population and a focus on eclecticism and uniqueness, people want something that is just their own … not just something that looks a little different to the norm, but something that really has their own stamp. Luckily, there are quite a few ranges and options in store that cater to the call of the wild … wild, untrodden jewelry territory, that is! Here we look at the best personalized gifts for October birthdays, both for guys and girls.
Pandora Amethyst Love Knot Charm
Pandora Diamond Harlequin Charm
Hot Diamonds Necklace Charms
Chatterbox Charm by Hot Diamonds
Love Notes Charm by Hot Diamonds
Titanium Ring with Diamonds and Pink Sapphires
Titanium Ring – Dark with Single Diamond
Inori Stainless Steel Pendant for Engraving
Men’s Stainless Steel Pendant for Engraving
While all of the products in our personalizable ranges have one thing in common (the gift of choice!), a great way to help you decide where to start is using a strange, but often accurate predictor of personality – your loved one’s zodiac sign! Where Libras, born from the 1st to the 23rd of October, are equitable and balanced, graceful and always looking for a willing ear to bash (!), Scorpios are much more private. They are said to be intense personalities, who like a little mysticism and magic in their lives. In fact, Scorpios are more likely to read their starsign every day than all of the other signs -so why not celebrate their Scorpio-ness with the Pandora silver Scorpio bead as a start to their personalized Pandora bracelet? It is among the most budget-friendly of the Pandora charms, but is beautiful quality, and speaks right to the Scorpio heart .
While you could certainly just grab the base bracelet, set up some credit for your loved one and tell them to ‘go for it’ (!), it is nice to give them some ideas! The amethyst charm at right is another great starting idea for Scorpio bracelet – the purple amethyst is a traditional symbol of mysticism and spirituality, and this charm utilizes it in a neat and sweet way. The amethyst is held in by 14ct gold prongs, which help bring out the stone’s warmth, while the main base is sterling silver for good affordability. This will suit either gold or silver base bracelets, and looks beautiful on a red leather Pandora necklace as well!
Libran ladies will also find plenty of ideas within the Pandora pages for gifts that she can personalize to her exact style. She should love the diamond, gold and silver harlequin charm at right, with its even, balanced style, and incorporation of diamonds … Libran girls love having the finer things in life! There are a total of three genuine white diamonds on the charm, set in 14ct yellow gold to help their sparkle stand out. Again, this is one of those beads that goes beautifully on either a gold or silver bracelet base.
Hot Diamonds is a wonderfully contemporary, chic range, which matches silver and diamonds in a huge range of designs and styles. They also have personalizable bracelets, with a setup that is more recognizable as a traditional charm bracelet. You can also get Hot Diamonds necklaces, and pop several charms on at once, or interchange them depending on how you feel. The ultimate in personalizable jewelry – one that you can change daily! The necklace is shown at right, and the mobile phone charm beneath is our choice for a starting charm for Librans. These sociable souls can often be found chatting their little teeth off in the phone corner, so this ‘hotline to the in crowd’ will suit them perfectly! It is an all-silver charm, and has amazing detail in that tiny face!
For Scorpios, who are immensely private, but still very expressive, we love the ‘Love notes’ charm, shown at right. Check it out in the Special Editions section of the bracelet builder – Scorpios will love the opportunity to mentally jot down their private thoughts, and get them out of their heads, in this journal-style charm . A charm with gorgeous depth and a great design, and a very attractive price tag!
Titanium rings are one of our most exciting products – there is just so much that can be done with them. There are both men’s and women’s options, but the pink sapphire and diamond studded ring shown at right is made for very feminine Libras, who love the finer things in life! Everything that you can see about this ring can be personalized, though – the color of the titanium, the ring shape, the width, the size, and the number, placement, setting and type of gemstones. You can also add bands of color and different metals to these rings – when you load the titanium ring designer page you’ll see plenty of possibilities. Libran girls will love personalizing this design to suit themselves – with their signature pink on board and a healthy dose of great quality metals and gems, it is right up their alley.
The titanium ring at right with dark metal and a single diamond could quite easily be either a men’s or women’s piece of jewelry .. and if you’re buying a romantic gift, titanium rings are a great way to match your jewelry without compromising either the masculinity or femininity of the piece. For example, you could up the width a little and change the band to a flatter shape, and this would be a striking men’s ring! We chose this for Scorpio guys or girls, with its intense, dark look, and the inclusion of the most powerful of gemstones for the most powerful of starsigns!
Your other option for creating a truly unique gift is to take something that everybody else has … and make your unique mark on it, by engraving a message! Some pieces, like the Inori pendant with blue and black accent rings at right, can be engraved on both the front and back. This pendant is a lovely middling size, 3.5cm long, comes with an awesome low price and has the bonus of free worldwide shipping. The first 20 characters of engraving on both the front and back of the pendant are free … although you might want to minimize the essays if you are buying for a very private Scorpio guy!
The stainless steel pendant below the Inori one is another great option for having engraved. Although this one only has space on the back, it is a more solid style, and comes with the bonus of low price tags in exchange for not having a ‘brand name’. The chain is included, it ships for free across the entire world, gift wrapping is complimentary, and your engraving is free … it will just about get up and walk off the screen without any effort from you! Almost .
Within the half-a-dozen ranges that make up our personalizable jewelry at Gilletts, there are literally millions of possibilities for different combinations and style. Keep browsing in the Pandora or Hot Diamonds ranges for personalizable bracelets and necklaces, and for men who have a flair for the individual, get them to design their own titanium ring. If you need any help with these sections of the website, help is never far away. We’re just in behind the little Live Help icon – feel free to let us out!
Pink Heart Cubic Zirconia Necklace
When most people think jewelry for gifts, they think luxury birthdays – 18th , 21st, 30th, 40th, and so on into the unmentionables . What many people don’t realize is that there is a huge range of jewelry gifts available that cost no more (for gorgeous quality!), than you would pay for a nice piece of clothing, a evening of dinner and drinks, or any other specialty item you can think of. Today we’re looking at what people might not realize -that a huge percentage of the jewelry items you see are within reach of the average present-buyer, for just the average birthday! Here are our selections for inexpensive October birthday gifts for both men and women.
Pandora Ocean Wave Oxidized Silver Necklace
Pandora Black and White CUbic Zirconia Earrings
Pandora Mix n Match Rose Quartz Earring Attachments
Pandora Black and Grey Triangles Murano Glass Bead
Pandora Violet and Purple Triangles Murano Glass Bead
Pandora Rose Quartz Bubble Ring
Heart Style Cubic Zirconia Ring
Rochet Brand Cross Necklace
I’m not kidding about there being a very decent range – you will certainly need to go in with more than half a clue about what you’re looking for! A simple way to start narrowing your search is using you loved one’s exact birthdate – if they are born on or before the 23rd of October, they are a graceful, balanced, sociable Libran. Those born after the 24th of the month are Scorpios, who tend to be private people with intense personalities, very emotionally driven. We picked the sweet, happy, lighthearted pink cubic zirconia heart necklace for Librans – pink is their signature color. Cubic zirconias are a great way to get a little gemstone in your jewelry, but without bumping up the price. An added bonus is that with some colors, the shade is almost exactly the same as for an equivalent precious stone – these pink CZ look quite a lot like pink sapphires! The heart is a dainty piece, measuring just 1.5cm long, and the stones are set on sterling silver. The chain is not included – but with this price tag you could comfortably buy two for her to choose from!
The Pandora range is one of many different personalities – while there are plenty f ultra-luxury items within the range (and a full bracelet is worth quite a lot), there are also plenty of very affordable but professionally styled pieces. The ocean wave cubic zirconia pendant at right is perfect for Scorpio women, with its mystical symbolism and intense coloration. The cubic zirconias on the face of the pendant are purple amethyst colored ones, and the sterling silver is purposefully oxidized, giving it an aged, mystical sort of look! The necklace attached to the pendant section is 45cm long, with the pendant section measuring 3cm wide. With a total length of 48cm, it has a lovely middling length and can either be worn over clothing, or tucked underneath it.
If you have a Scorpio to buy for, stick around in the Pandora range – the black and white cubic zirconia earrings at right coordinate beautifully with the ocean waves pendant above them. Black is Scorpio’s signature color, and these gorgeous earrings are made from inexpensive materials, but with obvious flair for jewelry design. You can almost buy two pairs of these for under AU$100 … buy just one and you’ll have enough change left over for a date to wear them on!
The Mix n Match range of earrings from Pandora is a new jewelry collection, where you purchase the hook part and the earring attachment separately. It gives you the opportunity to own more pairs of earrings at a lower price (because less material input is needed), an also to create interesting textural and color layers in your earrings. There are several different pairs of attachments to choose from, but it is the rose quartz beads on silver attachments that we couldn’t resist! With their subtle grace and pink overtones, they are perfect for Libran girls, and even when you buy an initial pair of hooks to go along with them, they are perfect for your pocket! The attachments are around 1.7cm in length, and the rose quartz pieces have a beautiful multifaceted cut.
Pandora bracelets are another way to incorporate jewelry into your regular schedule of gift ideas, at extremely affordable prices! The pleasure of a Pandora bracelet is building it up slowly, so there is no need to feel bad about getting just one charm at a time for your loved one. For Scorpio girls, we choose the intense, powerful colors of the two Murano glass beads at right, with both black/ grey and violet/purple triangles. Murano glass creates beautiful quality, long lasting glass jewelry, and is actually the second lowest-priced of all the Pandora bead categories (after the silver beads). These two designs carry plenty of stock – but can only be delivered within Australia.
Pandora has some beautiful options for under AU$100, even in their ring section. The rose quartz bubble ring is for Librans, again, and is a perfect match for their rose quartz Mix n Match earrings! The sterling silver base and the inexpensive, but still very unique gemstone make this an exceptionally affordable ring. There are also matching stud earrings and a matching bracelet charm to be found, giving you plenty of instant ideas for Christmas! You will have to ruin the surprise for this one, unfortunately – the bubble pattern on the band means that once it is manufactured, it can’t be re-sized. Get a current, accurate finger size measurement from your local jeweler.
Even within the men’s dress ring range there are plenty of inexpensive but stylish choices, like this heart-engraved cubic zirconia ring. It is a unisex style, but Scorpio men will love it, with their tendency to be ruled by their hearts and emotions. It is made of tough stainless steel (this is one heart that will never break!), and sized with both sexes in mind, at 7mm wide. There are three cubic zirconias spread over the band. It is rare you find such a truly unisex piece of jewelry – if this is a romantic gift, then you could add to it by buying a matching one for yourself .
Libran guys are all about balance, and the wonderfully balanced ‘cross within a cross’ design of this Rochet brand necklace makes it perfect for them. The necklace itself is made of durable stainless steel, and the black section in the middle of the cross is a rubber accent, matching the black rubber necklace which comes with the pendant. It is a nice middling size, at 3.5cm long, and has plenty of stylistic matches within the Rochet range. The necklace will also help balance out your wallet – at just under AU$100 and with free shipping, gift wrapping and an included necklace, you can pay and then relax!
Hopefully we’ve converted you … from someone who always missed out on the personal joy of giving jewelry as a gift, to someone who knows that it is actually a very budget-friendly choice, if you know how to look! Check out the sterling silver range, and the Pandora pages to start with for inexpensive gift ideas, as well as the Gift Ideas for Men and Gift Ideas for Women sections. Remember to use the price slider in the blue box to set your budget, and prepare to be amazed at the choice that’s out there!
Rhodolite Garnet Pendant
From the time that we lived in caves, and had clan shamans instead of general practitioners, an amulet around the neck has symbolized protection and magic. And it still can today! Pendants and necklaces have remained one of the most popular forms of jewelry – rings may be bought once or twice in your life, but you can’t clutter your hands too much. Women often have several pairs of earrings, but they don’t have that same personal touch as a pendant, which sits next to her heart and shares its sparkle with her face! We look at pendant and necklace choices for both women and men with an upcoming October birthday.
Edge Hot Diamonds Pendant
Georgini Black and White Cocktail Pendant with Chain
Heart Dangle Necklace
Pandora Contrasts Inspiration Bracelet/Necklace
In The Mix Inori Black Men’s Pendant
Silver Belcher Chain
With just over a hundred pendant choices for him, and just under FIVE hundred for her (phew!), you have to find some way to tell what your loved one will find fascinating in a piece of jewelry. Starsigns are as good a way as any to narrow your field – Libra takes up the first part of the month, until the 23rd, and is said to make women and men into balanced, equitable, graceful creatures who love a drink and a laugh with good friends … or just someone to listen to them! Scorpios, born from the 24th onwards, are traditionally seen to be more private, and are intense and very emotional people with a strong touch of the mystic and magical. We love the intense coloring and mystic coloration of the rhodolite garnet pendant at the beginning of the article. The garnet is a stunning sized 1.60ct oval cut stone, around 6mm by 8mm in size. The rhodolite version of the garnet has a little more purple in the coloration, creating a cross between an amethyst and a garnet … a strange and mysterious looking stone! It is set on 9ct white gold, so is affordable, while catering to all skin types. Our white gold contains no nickel. You’ll need to grab a chain along with this pendant, or save some pennies and let your Scorpio gal pop it on one of her old favorites.
Graceful, stylish Librans are the ‘girls’ in the phrase ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, and the clean, sleek lines of the Edge pendant by Hot Diamonds at right are a great way to incorporate them into jewelry for her. Featuring five brilliant cut white diamonds, in an unexpected square shaped grain setting, the pendant is made of an affordable sterling silver base, plated with rhodium. Rhodium is similar to platinum, and increase shine while protecting against the characteristic black tarnish that silver can develop. The chain for this one is included in the price, and shipping is free, so there are absolutely no extra costs!
It makes sense that black is the signature color for intense and powerful Scorpio women – and black cubic zirconias are a budget-friendly yet strong way to incorporate the color into her jewelry. The black and white cubic zirconia pendant at right is by Georgini, and makes a wonderful elegant, yet intense evening wear piece for Scorpio women. The pendant itself is 6.5cm long, and made of rhodium plated sterling silver. It really is a bargain – but you would never know it to look at it!
The heart necklace at right is a similar shape, but has a completely different feel to it – the graceful sway of the long chain is perfect for Libran ladies. It features two tiny freshwater pearls above a heart shaped sterling silver chain, with the dainty size of the pearls only adding to the value and personality of the piece. The main chain section is 42cm long, so sits nice and high around the throat, while the drop section itself is 8.5cm long, and will almost disappear into a carefully created valley! A great look for evening wear. It ships for free, and come with a very attractive price tag to boot.
You can also create the same personalizability in necklaces that you can with Pandora bracelets – not many people realize that there is a huge range of leather and metal necklaces to fit Pandora beads also. Check out the Pandora Inspirations range for ideas – we chose the Contrasts design at right for Scorpio women, with its powerful, intense combination of black and white, moderated by a little mystical purple! The oxidized sterling silver of the bracelet looks awesome, but if you are looking for a necklace, you’ll need to go with the black leather necklace for Pandora beads. These come in several lengths – and if you want, you can even browse through the rest of the Pandora charms, picking and choosing different beads with the same feel.
Scorpio men are intense, dramatic … and hot! So hot, that it isn’t unrealistic that they would melt their jewelry into oblivion, which is the symbolism we love in this In The Mix pendant by Inori. The pendant is made of a tough stainless steel base with black PVD coating, and measures a nice man-sized 3.5cm from top to bottom. If you prefer, there is a plain stainless steel version of this pendant available also.
Libran men love things which have an innate flow and grace – and it is difficult to pass plain chains for grace and flow. The silver belcher style chain at right can be worn either on its own, or with a pendant – just make sure that the attachment is large enough to fit over the more solid linking style of the belcher chain. The chain is 50cm long, comfortable for most men without being too ‘dangly’. It is made of sterling silver, so just check with your loved one that he doesn’t have the ‘black magic’ when it comes to sterling silver – a skin type that just about instantly tarnishes sterling silver.
With the men’s and women’s ranges combined, there are well over five hundred pendants on site to choose from – our handy product refinement box within the men’s pendants and women’s pendants section makes it easy to find what you’re after, refining by different prices, gemstones, styles and base metals. Happy hunting!

Black Marvella Pandora Inspirations Bracelet
If you are buying for one of those young fandangled hooligan girls or boys that likes the new style of jewelry this October (;-) ), you might be wondering where the heck to start in our huge collection! Being modern or contemporary is such a subjective thing … sometimes it even entails being classical and traditional, as the cycles of fashion move from innovative to ‘vintage’, and back again. As you scroll through pages of necklaces, bracelets, charms and earrings, they can all start to look a bit the same. We thought we’d do you a favor this month, and let you know what’s hot right now in both men’s and women’s jewelry for October birthdays!
Pink Swirls Pandora Inspirations Bracelet
Georgini Funky Black CZ Ring
Hearts in Love Diamond Pendant
Citizen Swarovski Crystal Watch
Pink Pearl Drop Earrings
Black Cubic Zirconia Cufflinks
Rochet Men’s Black, Steel and Techno Gold Bracelet
You will be looking at the ‘modern’ styles of jewelry for birthday gifts … but in truth, that really only narrows your options by about 50%, and you’re still looking at thousands of different product possibilities. A great way to narrow the field even further is by using your loved one’s starsign as a surprisingly accurate gauge of jewelry taste. Librans are born form the 1st to the 23rd of October, and the traditional Libran personality is a balanced, graceful one that really appreciates the finer things in life … meaning gold, silver and diamonds! Scorpio takes up the rest of the month from the 24th onwards, and people born under Scorpio are usually said to be intense, private and very emotional people, fiercely loyal, who have a tendency towards mysticism. The signature color for Libra is pink but for Scorpio it is a dark, intensely dramatic black – which is why we picked the Black Marvella Pandora Inspirations bracelet at the beginning of the article for modern Scorpio gals. She’ll love the modern eclecticism of the bracelet, which chooses to mix a variety of textures, materials and patterns in a non-symmetrical, but still balanced way. Individualism is another trait of modern women, and your Scorpio gal will be able to build on the bracelet however she likes! With two spacers, two gems charms, a 14ct gold stripe charm and the five Murano glass pieces, this is one of our more complete pieces.
The personalizability and eclectic nature of the Pandora Inspirations bracelets are a lovely modern choice for Libran girls too – we chose the Love Swirls bracelet at right for the balance and femininity of it, which complements the Libran personality perfectly! With a graceful vertical flow to the design of the charms, the perfect symmetry and the unified theme of the bracelet, Libran girls will love it. The charms come on a sterling silver base bracelet, but if you like you can switch it for a 14ct gold version, which will suit your finery-loving Libran. Keep it on the sterling silver, though, and it is one of our more cost-effective Pandora Inspirations bracelets.
Georgini is a bran that really sums up the modern look, and is especially suited to younger girls. The funky black cubic zirconia ring at right is a stunning, powerful piece – perfect for Scorpios, as it is made in their signature color. The entire ring is made out of cubic zirconia, and the face of it measures 20mm from top to bottom. Stunning! This one ships for free, but we only have one finger size left in stock … so be quick!
We mentioned that Librans love to surround themselves with all of the best quality, finest things … this ‘Hearts in Love’ pendant is a great way to help her do that! It is the little details that give this subtly styled pendant a modern twist – things like the way the top heart attaches to the chain, and the asymmetrical grace of the two very differently shaped hearts. The bottom heat is encrusted with 21 brilliant cut diamonds, for an amazing sparkle factor, while the entire pendant is made of 9ct white gold, for good affordability. It is a daintily sized 20mm from top to bottom, and you are not paying for a chain in the price of the pendant. She can pop it on one of her existing favorites, and combat chain-clog while saving some money!
If your private Scorpio lady wants a modern look, without clogging it up with ‘unnecessary’ jewelry (if there is such a thing ), the Citizen Swarovski crystal watch at right is the answer. The clean, straight lines of the piece are quintessentially modern, and the black strap and mother of pearl face combine to make a mystical, powerful feel for the watch. This watch is one of Citizen’s Eco-Drive pieces, meaning that you are also giving the gift of never again having to change a watch battery. Eco-Drive is a solar-cell technology that is powerful and efficient enough to keep the watch going for up to five years in the dark … and then just needs a little light to get it going again! The watch is splash resistant, and comes with a huge 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.
If you are looking for modern birthday gifts, chances are that you are looking for members of the modern generation (makes sense!). Even if you aren’t searching for gifts for your own child, the Gift Ideas for Daughters and Gift Ideas for Sons section have some awesome youth-oriented, contemporary jewelry choices. The pink pearl earrings at right are from the Gift Ideas for Daughters category, and are perfect for Libras, with their graceful sway and slim modern lines. They include two petite 7-7.5mm pink freshwater pearls, and although they have a stylish, elegant look, they are extremely affordable!
Even though as a gender, they are much maligned for being ’soooo 1990!’, there are actually just about as many contemporary, cutting edge guys as there are girls out there. For the older, office bound ones, the black cubic zirconia cufflinks at right are a perfect modern choice. Geometrical lines coming to a sparkling point create a powerful and modern statement … perfect for Scorpio guys. The black enamel feature is set on stainless steel, one of the jewelry bases more favored by modern stylists. The links are only 1.5cm long, and help create a polished appearance without looking stuffy and old-school.
Rochet is one of our contemporary fashion brands on site, and they’ve created a great piece for modern Librans with this stainless steel, black rubber and techno gold bracelet. The balance of the bracelet is great, and the use of modern materials and different colors really makes it a fun piece of jewelry. It measures 22cm long, and while it is certainly one of the bigger-investment pieces in the men’s jewelry range, it will never be wasted on a Libran! Those sociable souls will find every excuse to wear it out and dress it up.
