Birthday Celebrations with Walker & Hall

This month at Walker & Hall, we are pleased to celebrate 118 glorious years as leaders in the New Zealand Jewellery industry. Helping Kiwis choose that perfect piece for that special occasion is what we excel in, helping generation after generation create special memories.

Throughout the world, people are celebrating with traditions and celebrations of their birth every day of the year. And although every birthday is a gift, there are a few standout birthdays which are seriously worth celebrating.

According to Statistics New Zealand, 30 September is the most common birthday, with the top ten most common birthdays all appearing in the 10-day period from 22 September to 1 October. September is also the most common birth month in the United States as well. So for many of you, regardless of whether your Christmas falls in the summer or winter climat, it seems Christmas and New Year celebrations which fall nine months prior to September have a lot to answer for!

Let's have a look at some of the noteworthy birthdays many of use celebrate today.

21st Birthday

Key to the door, independence and a party with family and friends are all things we associate with a 21st birthday. However, 21st celebrations date back to Elizabethan times when this was the blessed age for a man to wed. Though many people now wait until much later to marry, a 21st birthday is still traditionally thought of as 'the coming of age'.

30th Birthday

Turning 30 is about looking at how far you've come and where you want to go. Some are thinking about getting engaged and married, or having children, while others are looking to explore the wonders of the world or making important career choices.

40th Birthday

You're a little older and a little wiser and chances are quality over fleeting fashion is more to your liking. You're more comfortable with yourself, developed your own style and know what you like.

50th Birthday

A half century is something to really shout about! Chances are you will want to celebrate this milestone birthday with a special holiday, purchasing a significant piece of jewellery (or having an existing piece reworked into something new), or celebrating in some other memorable way - tick something off your 'bucket list' maybe?

What would you choose for your birthday? Take advantage of our Birthday Sale which is on until the end of September.
