Christmas is just days away! Are you thinking about buying someone on your list a jewelry gift? If so, you’re not alone. For many men, jewelry is a common gift to fall back on because it’s impressive and heartwarming, especially if you make an effort to pick out a piece that captures her personality. Furthermore, jewelry is a gift that can last as long as a lifetime, unlike a box of chocolates or a bottle of perfume.
Men often procrastinate and wait till the last minute to buy their wives, girlfriends, mothers, and other important women in their lives jewelry. Fortunately, jewelry is fairly easy to shop for, unlike clothing, which carries a high potential for error. Here are some tips that will help you make the right choice.
Silver or Gold
In general, women either like white metals or yellow gold, but not both. Take a quick glance at her jewelry box. Does she have mostly platinum and silver pieces or yellow gold jewelry? Select a gift based on the contents of her jewelry box.
Traditional or Fashion-Forward
Is she a fashionista, or is her style traditional? If she is more Audrey Hepburn than Lady Gaga, stick with classic pieces, such as this eternity ring.
Another last-minute holiday jewelry gift you can get for a gal with a more classic sense of style is a pair of gemstone stud earrings, like these sapphire and diamond beauties.
If her wardrobe pushes the envelope, she’ll undoubtedly appreciate jewelry with a more edgy look, such as this attention-getting cocktail ring.
Or how about this fun, quirky Y-shaped necklace?
Does she like to wear yellow, red, or blue and green? The colors that dominate her wardrobe are the likely ones that she will favor the most in jewelry. For example, if she likes blue, she would probably adore this sapphire bracelet.
If you want to get her something that has personal significance, consider buying her birthstone jewelry. For example, if her birthday is in July, you can get her these ruby earrings. This fiery birthstone symbolizes beauty, charity, happiness, love, and passion.
If you’re buying a jewelry gift for your significant other, consider getting her dramatic, dangle earrings that are appropriate in the daytime or for a romantic night out on the town. Long dangle earrings look particularly elegant with short hair or an up-do.
