The Concise Guide to Buying Jewelry for Your Girlfriend

A relationship is like a rollercoaster. There are ups and downs, stops and turns, slow moments and fast moments. Because of all the hard work, time, and effort put into the relationship, when the time comes to pamper and surprise your girlfriend with jewelry, you want to be sure you get her something she will love and cherish forever. A classic and timeless piece of Julie Vos jewelry, Gabriel and Company earrings, or a Janis Savitt bracelet is never the wrong way to go, but there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure you get that perfect piece of jewelry for her.

Pay Attention to Her Style
If you’re going to buy your girlfriend jewelry, you want to make sure it’s something she’ll want to wear. In preparation for the purchase, keep an eye on the kinds of jewelry she wears on a regular basis, on nights out, to office parties, while relaxing at home, on holidays, and at events like weddings or black-tie affairs. By paying attention to the kind of jewelry your girlfriend wears, you’ll get an idea of the kind of purchase you should make.

Ask Yourself, “What is the Occasion?”
Once you’ve scoped out the kind of jewelry your girlfriend wears on different occasions, you’ll then want to think about why you are buying her this piece of jewelry. Is it for her birthday? Christmas? To celebrate the birth of your baby? Just because? Thinking about the occasion can help you determine the style of jewelry you’ll want to get. For example, if you’re celebrating the birth of your newborn baby, you might think about getting a piece of jewelry that incorporates that message. Jewelry for birthdays can incorporate a stone that matches her birthstone while buying a piece of jewelry “just because” can be a sign of strengthening the love that is already there with a beautiful, timeless token of appreciation. For example, Julie Vos jewelry can be worn both on a daily basis and for formal occasions while a Les Georgettes bracelet might be kept for more informal occasions.

Think about Metal and Color
This tip can go hand-in-hand with paying attention to your girlfriend’s style. Does she only wear sterling silver jewelry? Perhaps, she keeps her gold jewelry or jewelry with semi precious stones tucked away and only taken out for special occasions. Maybe she doesn’t like the color one type of metal looks against her skin or maybe any other metal aside from gold irritates her skin. If metal preference makes no difference, you can then take into consideration why you are buying this gift and what kind of gift you want it to be. For example, are you buying something she can wear on a daily basis or something that would be kept for more upscale occasions?

Pay Attention to the Meaning
When giving jewelry as a gift, you also want to think about the meaning behind the gift. If you’re buying something for the birth of a baby, a piece of jewelry that incorporates this could be a symbol of the start of a new family, a new chapter in a shared life, and the growth and excitement that is sure to follow. If you’re in a semi-serious relationship and decide to buy jewelry in the shape of a heart, it could symbolize the love that is forming and growing and could mark the turn of a new stage in a relationship. Jewelry with diamonds can symbolize the love, strength, and faith between a couple; and we all know what offering a diamond ring means!

Choose the Right Size
The last thing you want to keep in mind when buying jewelry for your girlfriend is the size. Buying a piece of jewelry that is the wrong size will not be as impressive as buying something that is spot on and fits perfectly. To ensure you are getting the right size jewelry, it might be a good idea to take a piece of your girlfriend’s jewelry with you to the jeweler so you can be sure you are purchasing a size that will fit to truly impress your girlfriend.
