How to choose a piece of Valentine’s Day jewellery for your loved one
Instead of flowers and chocolates, if you’re looking for a valentine’s day present for your beau, there’s no better way to say I love you than through a beautiful piece of jewellery. But with so many jewellery styles and designs on offer, how can you pick a piece that they’ll love?
Look at their other jewellery
If your partner already wears jewellery, it’s worth having a look through their collection to get an idea of the style and colours they like. Do they only wear yellow gold? Or are they more of a silver or white gold fan? Pretty and dainty or eclectic and out there? Having something to base your choice on can go a long way in making sure you make the right purchase, so be sure to have a look through their jewellery collection.
You may be looking to propose to your other half with your Valentine’s Day jewellery, in which case finding the perfect engagement ring will be top of your agenda. However, if you’re not looking to pop the question just yet, buy a necklace, bracelet or earrings instead.
Go for quality
In our opinion, it’s better to spend a little more on a high-quality piece that will stand the test of time.
Jewellery like rings, necklaces and bracelets all come in an array of sizes, and having some idea of what you’re looking for will help you pick the right piece from the start. One of the most common mistakes people make when buying necklaces for example, is to buy the chain too small or too long. Likewise a bracelet needs to fit properly to protect it, so having something to work from is important. If you have no idea of size, try and pick something that’s classed as average and if you’re stuck, ask the jeweller.
There’s nothing that says I love you quite as much as a bespoke piece of jewellery that has been created solely with your loved one in mind. Talk to your jeweller about his or her personality, likes, dislikes and style, and between you, you should be able to come up with a stunning piece that can be treasured for years to come.
