Budget-Friendly Gift Guide


If you’re like us and absolutely love spoiling your loved ones with the perfect gift but still want to keep things savvy, then look no further than our budget-friendly gift guide. We’ve put together this guide to make it easier for you to find gifts for the special people in your life. These pieces won’t break the bank and definitely won’t compromise on quality! 

Whether it’s a personalised gift with meaning for someone you know very well or something special for someone who is particularly difficult to buy for, we know there will be something in this guide for everyone!

We’ve done the hard work for you, head to the Gifts Under $50 and Gifts Under $100 section of our website for a complete list of budget-friendly options. Otherwise, keep reading for some of our favourite budget-friendly pieces to spark some inspiration. All pieces listed are under $100 and most of them are between $50 and $100! 


We love giving the gift of charms and don’t think that you can go wrong with a charm from our Francesca Create Collection which will add a stunning piece of meaningful jewellery to the lucky recipient’s life. All of our charms come with their own unique charm card to specify the meaning behind the charm and makes receiving them as a gift even more special!

We absolutely have to recommend the alpha charm, available in silver, rose gold and yellow gold. From $19, the alpha charm is a Francesca favourite, adding a small yet meaningful touch to any piece of jewellery! It is one of the most versatile and most loved pieces we’ve ever created. 

We think any of our pearl charms are sure to be treasured with their unique lustre and the beautiful meaning behind them. They are the stone of potential and starting from $19, are a great addition to any bracelet, necklace chain or hoop! Choose between the smaller sized Pearl Charm, Keshi Pearl Charm  or Trio Pearl Charm for a daintier piece or the River Pearl Charm  or Coin Pearl Charm for a statement piece!

The Fusion Charm is another great option with a unique meaning behind the charm that ‘there is no bond greater than this’, starting at $39 in silver. Some of our other favourites include the Atlas Charm Unity Charm or Compass Charm which are all under $80 and are a beautiful addition to any jewellery collection! 

For some added sparkle we recommend the Stellar Charm, Constellation Charm, Bhakti Charm, Cosmos Charm and Tranquil Charm, all under $60.


For a timeless and simple gift, we recommend our bracelets which are threaded on industrial-strength elastic and available in three wrist sizes. All of our bracelets are beaded in our Hobart studio in Tasmania, meaning they’re 100% Australian made!

For something simple in a full metal tone, we love the Galaxy Bracelet, 4mm Charm Bracelet or Division Charm Bracelet, all under $100 and great to add charms to down the track!

For an elegant and timeless piece, we also recommend the Signature Staple Bracelet in your choice of sterling silver beads or gold-filled beads. 

If you know they love pearls then the Dahlia Pearl Bracelet  or Lulu Pearl Bracelet  are both amazing options with genuine 6mm freshwater pearls embedded into the design.

For semi-precious stones, we love the Hue Bracelet and Opulent Bracelet range for a beautiful mixture of stones and textures. For a neutral piece, the Mother of Pearl Hue Bracelet and the White Moonstone Opulent Bracelet are a stunning option. For a pop of colour, the Pink Opal and Orange Moonstone semi-precious stone options are gorgeous.  

The Lumier Bracelets and Allure Bracelets are another great choice with beautiful stones to choose from. We are loving Malachite (the stone of transformation), Rose Quartz (the stone of love) and Turquoise (the stone of adventure)!

You also can’t go wrong with any of our Franc Create Charm Bracelets, you can choose from a wide selection of stones, we love the White or Black Agate (the stone of strength), Rhodonite (the stone of support) or Aquamarine (the stone of peace). These are a great staple and perfect to add charms to either with purchase or for a future gift! 


For those who may be a little difficult to buy for or you want to stick with something simple then our studs are a wonderful option (just make sure the recipient has their ears pierced first!). They are nickel-free and a timeless choice  that we know the recipient will love as much as we do!

On the smaller side, we recommend the Trilogy Studs, Petite Signature Studs and the Huxley Studs, all under $50. 

We also have to recommend our Pearl Studs (available in five sizes) for a timeless classic or Keshi Pearl Studs for a stunning and unique pair of pearls with texture. For a touch of sparkle, we love the Luminance Studs or Marquise Studs.

Otherwise, if you know they’re Francesca obsessed then we always recommend the Lola Studs or Signature Studs.


If you know their star sign and think this would be something they’d enjoy then the Petite Zodiac Charm and coin-style Zodiac Charm is an absolute must on the gift ideas list. 

If zodiacs may not be their thing then our Star Birthstone Charm or Ingot Birthstone Charm  is another personalised and beautiful gift, available in all 12 months of the year.


At $59, we love the Francesca Jewellery Wrap and Travel Jewellery Box to keep their jewellery safe on a day-to-day basis. They’re a favourite for those who love to travel or want something smaller to store their jewellery in at home. An amazing gift option for the girl on-the-go!


Keep an eye out on our The Latest page for limited edition pieces! At under $100, our current favourites are the Lulu Pearl Earrings, Ruby Hoops and Ezra Hoops

At Francesca, we’re proud to be #stretchingawareness and supporting a new charity each month with our Awareness Bracelets. Keep an eye out for our charity pieces for a gift that truly gives back. We have created our National Breast Cancer Foundation Awareness Bracelet with $20 of the purchase price going straight to the foundation (a charity we support throughout the year). 

Additionally, our Freedom Bracelet is a wonderful option, with 100% of proceeds from the purchase of any of the Be Hers Charity pieces in our Giving Back Collection, going directly to Be Her Freedom in their fight against human trafficking.

Our final recommendation is to give the gift of choice with our gift vouchers, we offer Physical Gift Cards and Electronic Gift Vouchers
