uying fine jewelry is an investment that lasts a lifetime. Naturally you want your gift to be treasured by the receiver. What she likes may not be the same as your taste in jewelry. A special gift needs to reflect the tastes and style of the receiver even if it is not your favorite style.
Here are some tips for how to choose a fine jewelry gift that she will love:
Pay attention to what she kind of jewelry she typically wears for daytime and for special event evenings. If she has a big bracelet collection but rarely wears earrings, then do not buy diamond stud earrings. No matter how beautiful they are and what a great bargain, if it is not her style then they would be a waste of money.
2. Ask Her Confidants
Avoid spoiling the surprise for her by fishing around with goofy questions that she will know is meant to choose her gift. Instead, ask her mother, sister or best friend. They know what she wears and probably have heard her talk about what she wants but never bought for herself. If they have, try and buy a jewelry piece that she has secretly always desired.
Look inside her jewelry box and see what she has already got. Notice which pieces you see her wear frequently and which jewelry items she has never worn. If you live in the same home, this is easy. But if you do not, you need to be cautious or you going through her jewelry box might get you arrested!
4. Match Her Style
Notice her dress style. Does she favor classic clothes, sporty clothes or high style trendy clothes? The jewelry gift needs to compliment her clothing style. If you are not sure how to make those things match, then ask a female sales clerk at the jewelry store for assistance. You might even bring along her sister or girlfriend to help you make the selection. Just be sure the helper can keep your secret.
5. Engrave It
If possible, have the fine jewelry item engraved. Whether you engrave her monogram or your initials intertwined with yours, this shows her how much you thought about and planned the purchase.
Engraving often takes time. So getting something engraved will show her just how much you have thought about the purchase, which means will value it even more. But beware! If you decide to add a special event date, like your anniversary, make sure you get it right! Nothing spoils a gift more than getting the date wrong!
Prepared with these basic tips, you can select a fantastic fine jewelry gift that will please your lady when she receives it and every time she wears it.
