Remember the first piece of jewellery you received? My guess is that you received a piece of gold jewellery such as a little trinket to mark your first birthday or a necklace and pendant to commemorate reaching adulthood when you came of age.

The gifting and purchase of jewellery are associated with marking important milestones such as first months, birthdays, reaching adulthood, weddings, anniversaries, graduation and other important occasions like scoring a promotion. And why not, especially since jewellery is also regarded as heritage pieces which may be passed down the generations.

Looking for an exclusive piece of jewellery for an upcoming occasion? Yahoo Shopping trawled the Internet and discovered a few under-the-radar online jewellers where you can find one-of-a-kind jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets and rings to commemorate special occasions with your close and loved ones. Add to the uniqueness of your pieces by getting them customised with meaningful words, phrases or names. Yahoo Shopping shows you the way.
