The Fine Art Of Gifting Jewelry

Buying something personal like jewelry is always a risk. The accessories that you wear are a symbol of your own style and taste, so buying them for someone else demonstrates just how well you know them.  Get is right and you’re a hero, get it wrong and it will never see the world outside their jewelry box.  Here are a couple tips to help you find the perfect piece for that special someone.

  • Keep it Simple

You may be tempted to get something original and flashy, but this can backfire. There is a fine balance between making a statement and looking silly. If the intended recipient is a bit of a gear head, don’t fall into the trap of buying the flashy red watch with a Ferarri on the second hand. Something simple like this skeleton watch  would be a lot more likely to be used day after day, and not only because they don’t want you to feel bad.

  • Don’t Buy Something That’s Only Temporarily In Style

If you are looking for something they will be wearing for years to come, avoid anything trendy that will soon be outdated. Certain jewelry gifts have a classic sparkle, like diamonds set in gold, that makes for a gift that’s meant to be passed down, not just re-gifted. Make it original by adding in some color like this Tanzanite gem stone surrounded by round cut diamonds. It’s just the right balance of style and subtlety.
