Buying jewelry for a woman who really counts for you is no easy task, for a jewelry item should be one of the most meaningful and romantic gestures that you could make towards a woman. There are not many items that can really express your love towards a woman, and these are definitely jewelry items.
A beautiful ring, a special necklace, pair of earrings or bracelet can do wonder to conquer the heart of a woman, as jewelry has a magical charm and appeal towards all women, which will always have a special significance for any woman.
However, like most men you probably do not have much experience in jewelry, hence the task of choosing which kind of jewelry is the best choice for the woman you intend to purchase the gift for can be quite a task. However, purchasing just the right item of jewelry can actually be quite simple if you follow some basic tips to help you choose appropriately.
The first place you should go for inspiration, is her jewelry box, as you can learn a lot by going through the items she already has, you can get clues as what her individual taste and style is. It will also allow you some insight as to what she is missing, or what gems she does not have in her collection. If she already has a necklace of pearls that she wears often, you could consider a pair of matching earrings, for example.
It is important to consider her personality and lifestyle. If you are dealing with a very romantic woman, then she will most likely like heart-shaped pendants and earrings, or diamond based jewelry. Special birthstones and charms will also appeal to this type of woman.
If the woman is a more casual or conservative type, then you are best focusing on classic jewelry items, such as gold based or diamond studs for earrings, and again simple loops or chains. There are also charms that represent specific professions or activities. Whatever your choice, make sure you avoid any flashy items or over-decorative pieces, which would only be appropriate for evening dresses, you need to make the gift a personal one to suit her personality.
If you are still unsure, ask people that know her more intimately, such as best friends or her mother. These people can be of great help and will direct you towards the right type of items. However, if you are still stuck for ideas, ask a professional jeweler or the one she goes to more regularly to shop, they will be able to help you as to which specific items she shops for when she visits the shop.
Another way to try and decipher what it is she likes, is to accompany her to the shopping centers and watch carefully when she is looking at the jewelry counters, and see what specific items catch her eye.
It is important to get to know all you can about the woman before making a purchase, as you do not want to make mistakes. Make sure you learn all the important dates in her life, and make sure you buy quality jewelry, even if it is more basic than you would have wished for, as you do not want it to break as soon as she puts in on. Learn all there is to know about the quality of jewelry in order to avoid embarrassing yourself and the woman you are offering the gift to.
