2021 Guide To Buying Jewellery For Her
Men tend to get through most of their lives without having to think too much about jewellery shopping and can easily find themselves in a bit of a muddle when it comes to buying something as personal as jewellery for a loved one. You really don’t have to spend all your money on the largest pieces of jewellery. After all, today’s fashion means smaller and more delicate jewellery for women, which can be easily combined with everyday clothing (jeans and t-shirts) and, in general, with a faster pace of life.
Here, at Lena Cohen we have put together a man’s guide of buying jewellery to help you on your path to finding the right piece of jewellery for you. So let’s work through the stages methodically and start right at the beginning.
1: WHO ARE YOU BUYING FOR?
The first thing you need to determine is who you’re buying the jewellery for. Spend time looking into what they like, what their style is, how they carry themselves, the things they already wear. For example, a young teenage girl isn’t going to want something her mother wears or vice versa. If you want to really want to surprise her with a piece of jewellery she will love and treasure, then this rests on your ability to translate your careful observations into the selection.
Look for clues in her fashion choices:
What type of clothes does she wear?
What colours does she like?
Is she into maximalist or minimalist styles?
2: CHOOSING METALS AND STONES
Materials: There are many different materials out there that are used to make jewellery, so its worth thinking about the materials the lucky recipient already wears, as this can give you an idea of what they like, along with giving you the chance to avoid options which they might be allergic to. While the material will often be the largest driving factor behind the colour of a piece, many jewellers incorporate a range of colours and textures which are worth considering when you’re choosing a piece…. from rubies, to sapphires, to diamonds, to emeralds and many more. Its financially and environmentally better for both your wallet and world to purchase jewellery made from gold, diamonds and precious gems rather then purchase expensive costume jewellery made from harsh materials, only to throw them out once they have tarnished and dulled or she grows bored of them.
The Occasion: Formal jewellery should be more refined, featuring metals and gemstones which won’t distract from the rest of the outfit…earrings are a great way to enhance this look. For more casual events, though, colourful elaborate jewellery options can be perfect. If you’re buying a gift for a specific event, it’s well worth keeping this in mind, or you could make it hard for wearer to wear the piece as you would have hoped. However that being said, always remember to take into account the recipients likes and dislikes. If they are into astronomy, buy a piece that may have a star design, if they like the ocean, perhaps a seahorse…or where ever their likes or interest lie in, its best follow their lead.
Now take your time to look through the items you like, it’s worth setting them together and looking at the images side by side. Don’t make the mistake at rushing through this process, only to find that you end up with something less than perfect.
3: FINDING SUPPORT
Ask advice from the friends and family in your life and bounce your ideas around with them, checking to make sure that they agree with your choices. You should choose people you can trust for this, as you don’t want anyone to let the cat out of the bag!
4: PICKING THE PIECE
The final stage in this process, is to pick the piece of jewellery you’re going to buy. Think again about the person who will be receiving the gift, picture them wearing it for years to come. It can be hard to feel confident about this, but, at this point, you will have put enough thought into this to ensure that each of your options will work to some degree. This means that even if you don’t manage to find something which matches their desires perfectly, you’ll still have given them something they really like.
