Accessories are a very personal thing. Some people love big cocktail pieces, others love more delicate pieces. So when it comes to buying special people the right pieces, there are a few things that you can take into consideration.
This might be one of the most difficult things to get right. Even more so if you are trying to perform a covert operation and buy a ring without the intended recipient knowing. You can discreetly borrow a ring that you have seen them wear – but doesn’t always make an outing.
You can trace the inside and outside of the ring, and most jewelers can give you a great guess on the size. Of course, you should opt for a place that has engagement rings for every taste and increase your chances of getting it right.
Not every skin tone suits every piece of jewelry. Try to gauge the undertone of the intended recipient. Typically white gold, silver, and platinum work better for cooler skin tones. Rich golds and bright colors really pop on warmer skin tones. Coppers rose gold and black can be your go-to if you aren’t sure because they tend to work for everyone.
Although there are no rules when it comes to the color of the jewelry, see what they wear the most often and go for that. There is a good chance they wear what they love the most.
If they never wear necklaces, or perhaps hoop earrings, the chances are they might not like them. You can choose to shirk the standard and go for something they might not usually wear, or stick to the safe space.
The classics like tennis bracelets, slim band rings, and square-cut diamond earrings are typically great choices that anyone can wear.
Some people love the bold, chunky statement jewelry and others like smaller, less noticeable pieces. So when you are buying something, remember who you are buying it for.
We often get swept up in the idea of a piece that we want to give, rather than what the person in question would wear.
If you aren’t confident enough to get something, then enlist the help of others and show them some options. That way, you will be able to use the knowledge others have to get the right thing.
While the high street can be amazing for jewelry options. You have the whole of the internet at your disposal. If you have left yourself enough time, you can order from designers all over the globe and get something that they won’t see on other people.
Just remember that if you are getting a ring, you can take it to another jewelry to have it resized if you need to. So don’t worry too much about getting the size wrong – and it is better to go bigger, not smaller incase you need to have it resized.
Buying the perfect piece of jewelry is all about the person in question. And, it rarely matters the amount spent – because when you find the right piece, the price won’t even be a consideration.
