Whether you are celebrating your first year of dating, her birthday, Valentine’s Day or your wedding anniversary, it can be an intimidating task to select the perfect piece of jewellery for your loved one from the vast array that are available. It’s simple to go the biggest rock or other grand gesture, but will it reflect her style and will she want to wear it? Show her that you care by considering her personal style. It will also make your choice a lot easier.
Match her style
If your partner loves dressing up for a night out, adores her high heels and loves all things that dazzle and sparkle, try adding some extra bling to her wedding and engagement rings with a glamorous stacking ruby ring that symbolises love. If you are looking for jewellery for a female friend or family member, you may like to consider something a little more understated such as a colourful mixed crystal bracelet.
The woman who loves to stand-out has a unique sense of style and chooses pieces that reflect her independent spirit. Bold, bright jewellery that symbolise your relationship in the design, such as interlaced branches of a ring representing harmony and unity is a gift she will treasure.
If her wardrobe contains timeless classics like cashmere sweaters, pencil skirts and slim cut denim, she has a classic sense of style and may prefer simple, elegant pieces over more trendy styles.
If you are looking for a gift to mark a very special occasion – like your first wedding anniversary, consider a timeless piece of fine jewellery (check www.firstanniversarygifts.co.uk for ideas). This can include 24 karat gold bracelets with large quality gems if you have the budget. If you can’t stretch so far, you can still purchase fine jewellery at lower prices if you choose 10 karat gold and smaller gems as a cluster if you want something bold or as a single gem for a classic look.
Generally rings are less expensive than necklaces, bracelets, and earrings because there is less to them. These are great gifts for your sister as well as your partner. You can buy a ring on the second-hand market from all different jewellery eras to suit anyone’s taste. If you’re not sure what jewellery to buy, organise a shopping date with her so you can share the experience and have fun. Combine this with lunch date, to make a perfect day out.
If you want fine heirloom quality jewellery then look at antique gold jewellery that contain a lot more gold than some modern gold pieces. Antique necklaces come in a variety of shapes and colours. The majority of these 10 karat gold beauties feature pearls, amethyst, jade, diamonds and other very popular stones so you can match the gift to your partner’s style or birthstone.
You don’t have to purchase jewellery made from precious metals like platinum and gold. Beautiful jewellery can be made from sterling silver, copper, leather with glass and synthetic gems that look like the real thing. If the piece is the style, fit and look for the woman you’re buying for then you’ll have found a perfect gift. (more…)
Lots of different couples have great stories about how they met. Whether or not my wife and I have a great story is very much open to interpretation, I guess. She was a shop assistant at a jeweler’s store. I was looking for a Feldo Luxury brand watch, and I was trying as hard as possible to make it look like I knew what I was talking about when it came to watches in general and Feldo Luxury watches in particular. I think at first it was about impressing her, but eventually, it was really just about trying to talk my way out of something.
Neither of us remembers exactly what I said today, but just imagine someone from the 1970’s talking to a modern person about how much he knows about smartphones after glancing at a manual, and then take it down a notch.
I kept talking to her about all of the reasons why the Feldo Luxury brand was so great in the first place. I kept using all of these different technical terms that I’d looked up on my phone in the parking lot. At the time, I thought that I’d at least had her fooled for a few minutes. It turns out that she was humoring me the whole time, and I just kept on making more and more mistakes that eventually she just had to step in and clarify some of my obvious misconceptions about the Feldo Luxury brand. See, she actually did know a lot about the Feldo Luxury brand watches. Never assume that sales assistants don’t know their product: they don’t always tell you all about it, but unlike you, they actually have a financial incentive to know about it all the time. (more…)
