Finding the perfect gift for someone you care about can sometimes feel daunting. This is especially true if you’re trying to find a present that’s truly unique.
If you’re on the hunt for a unique gift from Australia, here are some helpful tips and inspiration for your search:
What makes a gift uniquely Australian?
Putting a purpose or thought behind a gift can help you determine what to buy for your friends and family. For instance, maybe you’ve gone for a practical gift of money for your cousin to spend on an upcoming holiday, or perhaps you’ve taken the sentimental route for your mum with a framed picture for her birthday.
Finding a unique gift, however, is not as straightforward. Everyone has their own definition of what makes for a distinctive gift, and sometimes the lines between unique and impractical can become blurred. When you want to buy a gift that’s uniquely Australian here are a few things to keep in mind:
Make sure the receiver doesn’t already have it: This is one of the first rules of gift-giving, especially if your goal is to present a one-of-a-kind treasure. A good rule of thumb is to get someone a gift they want, but would not necessarily purchase for themselves. This shows that you put thought into purchasing something they desire but that they perhaps never imagined themselves owning.
Unique doesn’t mean unusable: A misconception about unique gifts is that they have to be eccentric or borderline impractical. A special gift can still be elegant and match the receiver’s personal taste and style, but a unique twist or origin is what makes it unique.
Ensure it’s from Australia: Finally, if you want to present someone with a truly Australian gift, you must ensure it originates from Australia. For instance, Dreamtime tracks all of our diamonds with a Chain of Custody Authenticity card so our customers can be assured of their origin from OZ.
With this information in mind, you are on your way to finding a unique gift from Australia.
Unique Australian Jewellery
While it may seem like there’s no one gift that can encapsulate the lure of Australia and distinguish itself from other presents, look no further than a unique piece of diamond jewellery designed with the landscape of OZ in mind. A diamond is an unparalleled gift because each and every gem is one-of-a-kind.
Of the 4C’s outlined by the Gemological Institute of America, colour, clarity and carat are all natural elements of the stone. While a craftsman will cut and polish the rough diamond to make it the sparkling gem we see in the jewellery store, there’s no way to change these other elements. While the ideal diamond is clear and flawless, most have slight variations in colour and small inclusions that can’t be seen by the naked eye. These small distinctions help jewellers identify different diamonds and make every piece of diamond jewellery unique.
Dreamtime Australian Diamonds strives to highlight the distinctness of each diamond mined from the Australian earth to create one-of-a-kind gifts that are uniquely Australian. Our designers appreciate the appearance of each stone to craft versatile, affordable and on-trend jewellery inspired by the colours of the Outback.

Mined from the Australian earth
Every piece of jewellery created by Dreamtime is unique because the diamonds used are distinct. Dreamtime Australian Diamonds are earthed carefully from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia and tracked from the ground they came from, This results in a natural and untreated stone and ensures no two pieces of jewellery are identical.
The Argyle Mine is the world’s largest producer of natural champagne and cognac diamonds used in our jewellery and inspires a visually striking and warm colour palette for our jewellery.
A diamond is one of the unique gifts Australia has to offer that can be crafted into an exceptional piece of jewellery. To find more unique gifts and jewellery from Australia, visit one of our many retailers to see our diamonds sparkle for yourself.
