Choosing the Right Piece of Jewellery for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s day is one of the most popular occasions for giving jewellery. After all, there aren’t many gifts that are as romantic, and will be treasured for life. However, shopping for jewellery can be a daunting task, and there are so many styles and looks available, how do you choose? Here are some ways you can find the right Valentine’s day gift.
See what jewellery she already wears
The best way to see what kind of jewellery a woman might like is to pay attention to what she already wears. Does she have a favourite piece of designer jewellery already? Does she keep it simple, or go for large statement pieces? Pay attention to:
• What metals she wears – does she like yellow or rose gold, or prefer silver?
• The gems she likes – does she like coloured gemstones, or prefer classic looks like diamonds?
• The shapes she wears – does she wear stud or drop earrings? Thin or thick chains?
Look at her collection
Some women own charm bracelets, stacking rings, or other collectable items from the same brand. For example, Trollbeads are popular in women’s jewellery, as are Thomas Sabo charms, and if your other half likes these brands, then it makes shopping much easier. Choose a Valentine’s themed charm from one of these collections so she’ll always remember your special day.
Think about her style
Is she someone who spends a lot of time on her appearance, or someone who is more practical? If she enjoys dressing up, she might want something like designer bangles with lots of sparkle, or more of a statement piece. If she doesn’t wear a lot of jewellery, but you want her to have something special, then something like a watch might be a better gift.
Get the right size
Most jewellery such as bracelets and necklaces will be adjustable, so it’s difficult to buy the wrong size. However, if you’re buying designer rings, you will want to know her ring size. You can find ring sizers online that can be printed for reference, or sometimes get a free one from a local jeweller. Find a ring that she wears often, and you can then measure it against the chart for the perfect fit. Don’t worry if it’s not quite right. You can exchange it for the right size, or get rings resized cheaply.
Trust your instinct
Many people are nervous about jewellery shopping, and can be overwhelmed by the choice, so take your time and trust your instincts. By shopping for designer chains and other jewellery online, you can browse without the hassle, and simply bookmark your favourites. You can then go back and decide which ones you like the best, and decide which one to give as a gift. As long as it comes from the heart, she’s bound to love her Valentine’s gift.
