A Guide To Picking The Perfect Jewelry Gift
The perfect fine jewelry gift can speak volumes, but choosing it can easily become overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be, though. Continue reading for easy tips to make picking out meaningful jewelry gifts less stressful and much more successful.
Who Are You Shopping For?
This should be the first step in shopping for any fine jewelry gift. Just like every person is unique, so are their personal style and jewelry preferences. Think carefully about the person you’re shopping for and ask yourself the following questions.
- Do they prefer subtle jewelry, statement pieces, or a mix of both?
- Do they prefer yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or another type of precious metal? Or do they mix different metals?
- Do they have pierced ears?
- If so, what types of earrings do they wear? Stud earrings, hoop earrings, dangly earrings?
- If shopping for rings, do you know their size?
- Do they prefer dainty, stackable rings or bigger statement pieces?
- Do they wear neutrals, pops of bold color, or a mix of both?
- What length necklaces do they wear, if any?
- What types of bracelets do they wear, if any?
Finding the answer to some of these questions may take a little sleuthing on your part, but trust us, tailoring your gift based on this knowledge will help you make a good gift a great gift! If you aren’t sure from observation alone, you can also enlist friends and family members for advice.
What Is Your Budget?
Answering this question is a must. Not only will it help you choose a gift that is appropriate for the occasion, but it will also keep you from overspending. You’ll find it especially helpful when you’re able to narrow your options by your desired spending range. Make sure to decide on your budget ahead of time to ensure a smoother gift-shopping experience.
What Type of Jewelry Do You Want To Gift?
Rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings – there are so many options to choose from when looking for the perfect jewelry gift. Sometimes it is helpful to narrow down your choices by picking the type of jewelry you’d like to give rather than look through the multitude of options in front of you all at once.
For example, if you don’t know their ring size or can’t recall if their ears are pierced, a delicate gold necklace or stylish bracelet might be a better choice for your gift.
What Do You Want The Gift To Say?
While keeping the giftee’s personal tastes in mind, take time to consider the message you want to convey. Is it a romantic gift? A gift of thanks? A holiday or graduation gift? When torn between a few options, picturing what you want the gift to say or how you want the recipient to respond can be a helpful tie-breaker.
