Besides chocolates and flowers, jewellery is one of the most popular gifts for Valentine’s Day. But, just because it is a safe gift choice, doesn’t mean you should wait until the last minute to get the first thing you see. In fact, there are a few important things to consider before you purchase jewellery for this day of love. Here’s our jewellery gift guide for Valentine’s Day.
Things To Consider When Buying Jewellery for Valentine’s Day
1. The Person
Gifts are subjective, especially jewellery. So, be sure to think about:
- The relationship – this is the perfect time to purchase a memorable and thoughtful gift that will show just how in love you are.
- Personal taste – while it may be tempting to buy the biggest jewel you can afford, the piece you chose should have the wearer’s overall sense of style and preferences at heart. If she prefers simpler pieces, then you may want to pick something understated. Also, take note of the gemstones and metals she prefers, she may like yellow gold instead of white gold, or rubies instead of diamonds and vice versa.
- Significance – what will the special significance be behind the piece? Would you prefer to gift birthstones or perhaps gemstones with special meaning and symbolism to your relationship?
2. The Jewellery
There are three key elements to consider when it comes to picking Valentine’s jewellery.
A. Classics vs. Trends – Purchasing a jewellery with breath-taking shapes and designs for Valentine’s Day that are fashionable and “in” right now is the perfect way to show how thoughtful you are, and give her something she is sure to be proud of -whether it is a bracelet, necklace, or even stackable rings.
However, the problem with what’s “in” now is that it may come and go, as trends tend to do. Therefore, it may be better to pick something a little more classic with an enduring style. You don’t get much more classic than a beautiful strand of pearls or striking diamond stud earrings.
B. Think About Your Budget
While some people prefer not to think about cost and budget when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, you need to. Sticking to a budget is important for overall satisfaction with the jewellery. Try to decide on an approximate price range and this will serve as a handy starting point for making a decision.
C. Consider the Quality
Of course, you will want to get the best quality you can afford, so you should go via a reputable jeweller. Remember to ask for any accompany documents of authentication, like diamond certificates. This ensures you are getting reputable, high quality jewellery for your carefully-thought-out budget.
These considerations should give you a great starting point when it comes to picking jewellery this Valentine’s Day. If you are unsure of her style and taste, be sure to have a sneak peak in her jewellery box, or at her Pinterest boards for an idea of what she may like!
