    Do’s and Don’t Of Buying Jewelry As A Gift

    Jewelry is often a popular gift choice for many people, especially for those trying to find a gift that can be personalized or commemorate a personal event such as an anniversary or milestone birthday.

    When it comes to jewelry, the joy of surprise gifting can be as precious as the piece itself. There doesn’t always need to be a reason to gift your loved ones a piece of jewelry. The unexpectedness of the gesture can bring a smile to their face and warmth to their heart. However, choosing the correct item is crucial.

    These do’s and don’ts of gifting jewelry can guide you to select a piece that will be cherished for many years to come.

    Do Know Their Style

    When gifting your loved one an item of jewelry, take the time to evaluate their current items and base your choices on this, not something you think they would like. The piece will have more meaning and be more likely to be worn if you tailor your choice based on their current tastes and preferences when it comes to jewelry. Ensure you purchase the right type of material, i.s. gold or silver, and you choose a design that fits in with their current pieces so you know they will wear it and it will go with their style.

    Don’t Gift Cheap Pieces

    Buying a cheaper quality piece that can cause a reaction or become damaged or unwearable after a few times won’t look good on you and can indicate how little you feel about your relationship. Always look for the best quality jewelry in your price range and ensure that you are purchasing your item from a reputable jeweler to ensure quality.

    Do Choose To Personalise It

    There are a few different ways you can personalize your jewelry. It can be via a message on a card or on the box that indicates your relationship and what it means to you. It can be done via engraving their name or initials on a piece, or it can be done by adding a picture to the piece, i.e., in a locket or via a photo projection bracelet. Who they are to you, the type of item you’re buying them, the price point you are settling at, and their taste in jewelry will help you determine what type of personalization is best for your gift.

    Don’t Pick Something Too Intimate

    Unless the item is specifically for that reason, don’t purchase it. If you’re buying your wife a gift as a push present, for example, then an eternity ring or diamond tennis bracelet can be a great gift idea. However, it might not be the best choice for a platonic friend. If that isn’t the reason, steer clear of buying jewelry that is perceived as intimate, such as solitaire engagement rings. Simply choose a more generic piece of jewelry; opting for a diamond earring over a diamond ring can be a better choice, especially if you’re not conveying the message the piece of jewelry could send out.
