Does she go straight to the ring bar and start stacking those bands? Notice what she wears. Does she layer delicate pendants on gold chains? Does she prefer bold contemporary statements?
I’m tying this year’s Valentine’s Day gift list to a perennial favorite on this blog: 8 secrets for buying a woman jewelry. When it comes to jewelry, guys don’t know what to buy us, so they google it. To the men who nod as they read that: This one’s for you. You want to see her face light up when she opens that box – so badly, you just searched “how to buy a woman jewelry.” Am I right?
Trust me, if she loves you, she will love that you tried… but you have to try. Show her you’re paying attention, that you noticed her quirky tastes. Show her you thought about this and didn’t just nab the first thing that caught your eye on a manic, last-minute gift hunt. You probably won’t find the jewelry of her dreams on Google – she holds the secret to that – but the fact that you searched shows you’re serious about getting this right. Here, then, are steps you can take (with examples) to unlock her desires.
Buy what she loves, not what you want to see her in.
If you can find something that works for both of you, all the better. But if you want to see this thing on her beyond Valentine’s Day, if you want it to become one of her favorite pieces, make sure it suits her, that it’s well-crafted and wearable. To quote Cynthia Renee: “Jewelry should feel alive and sensual on the body – not stiff, sharp or unyielding.”
