The perfect piece of jewelry given at the right time is almost always guaranteed to put a smile on your significant other's face, but buying the jewelry doesn't need to put a frown on yours. Selecting jewelry for your wife, girlfriend or partner doesn't need to be a panic-inducing experience. In fact, armed with the right tips, it can be a pleasant and rewarding one.
Successfully choosing jewelry that she will love and wear will show her that you pay attention to her and know her style. Every time she wears the piece you bought for her she'll be reminded of you and your thoughtfulness. In order to do this, here are some of my best tips for picking out the perfect piece...
Jewelry Shopping Tips for Her
Observe: What type of jewelry does she currently wear? Look at the jewelry she already owns and make note of it. Is she more a classic girl (pearls and diamonds) or does she go for flashier, more colorful pieces? Does she gravitate towards gold or silver?Take your cues from what you see on her already and don't be afraid to snoop in her jewelry box, either! (Just don't get caught!)
It's About Her: Remember this is about her taste, not yours! When in the jewelry store, you may see something you really like, but it's about what she would like best. (This is why you've already spent time doing #1!)
Educate Yourself: Not only should you educate yourself about her tastes, likes, and preferences, but educate yourself about jewelry. If you're buying an engagement ring, learn about the 4 C's. If buying gold jewelry, understand the differences between 10 karat, 14 karat, and 18 karat gold. Do your homework and research...it will pay off!
- Investigate: Ask her friends or family what she might like. They're sure to be able to give you some inside information for your hunt for the perfect piece.
Personalize It: Women love personalization. A personalized piece of jewelry shows you paid extra attention to detail. A beautiful bar necklace with her initials or an engraveable heart shaped necklace with the date you met engraved on it is sure to be a hit!
Bonus Tip: This one is sure to help you find something she likes: check out her Pinterest page! Look at her style, fashion, and jewelry boards and see what she has pinned. This is a really good way to get the inside scoop on her tastes!
I hope you found these tips helpful...Happy jewelry shopping!
