Buying someone a gift is never an easy task – what if they don’t like it, how do you know what they like anyway, what if they’re just being kind when they smile and say thank you? When it comes to buying jewelry for your wife or girlfriend, the task is just as hard. Here are some secrets to getting it right.
If you’re set on, for example, a couple of cute bracelets for your girlfriend, you should pay more attention than usual when style and fashion come up in the conversation. She has probably mentioned once or twice before that she loved (or hated) pearls, that she thought (or didn’t think) statement jewelry was tacky, or that she did not care (or cared a lot) for the glitter of diamonds.
Get Her What She Loves
You might think that your girlfriend would look great wearing tasseled earrings, so it would seem like a good idea to get her a pair as encouragement. This is far from a good idea.
When it comes to jewelry, it’s an expression of personal style and personality. Getting your partner something that doesn’t speak to her in the slightest will result in your gift staying in the jewelry box forever. Choose jewelry for your girlfriend or wife in style you know she adores.
Study the Way She Makes a Choice
If you’re still uncertain about her tastes, a good idea would be to spend a day going round the shops with her. The woman in your life has a particular way of choosing what to wear, just like everyone else. If you take her shopping and pay close attention, you can find out what styles excite her.
Discreetly veer over to the jewelry stands and watch her reactions. Do her eyes sparkle when she notices a certain piece? Does she make a comment on her likes and dislikes? You can use this knowledge to get her a piece of jewelry she’ll definitely wear with joy.
Personal Meaning is the Best
No matter your budget, a piece of jewelry with special meaning will be a sure hit. It can be as cheap as a plastic costume ring or as expensive as a diamond necklace – what matters is the meaning behind it.
For example, if you’re thinking about necklaces for your girlfriend’s birthday, think about the place you met. Or the place you fell in love with each other. Maybe it happened underneath a blossoming cherry tree. You could choose a delicate chain gold necklace with a rose quartz stone for a pendant to represent the cherry petal.
A charm bracelet can also be a great choice. Each charm can represent a meaningful moment of your relationship. What’s important is that you choose something of great personal meaning and combine that, if you can, with her style of jewelry – statement, subtle, delicate, or whatever you notice she likes best and wears most.
Let Her Choose
If you’re really stumped, or want to be 100% certain she’ll love the jewelry, you can simply let her choose. A gift card can be a beautiful gesture if paired with a love letter. Another option is to surprise your wife or girlfriend by taking her to a jewelry store and letting her browse until she finds that one special piece.
