Tips for Choosing the Right Gift of Jewelry This Christmas

Posted on

If you already know exactly what the person you're buying for wants for Christmas this year, then you're all set, but if you're like most and you have no idea whatsoever what to get this person, then you're most likely struggling. You don't want to end up getting the wrong gift. Jewelry is a good idea, but you want to be sure you get the right type of jewelry for this special person. There's no sense in buying a ring for someone that doesn't like to wear rings. Read on for helpful tips.

What Is Their Style?

Consider their personal style when choosing a piece of jewelry. Are they into glitz and glamour, do they wear a lot of statement pieces, or do they have a more simple style? Depending on the person's style, you'd hate to get them a piece of statement jewelry or a simple piece when their style doesn't reflect that. Take a good look at what the person wears daily, wears when they go out and pay close attention to their accessories as well. Also, consider if they prefer gold or white gold, or possibly even rose gold. Does the person wear earrings, necklaces, bracelets, a watch or rings? Consider what type of jewelry they already wear and what they would wear often.

What Do They Do for a Living?

Consider what the person does for a living, and what hobbies they have outside of work. If their work doesn't allow for jewelry, they may not wear the piece of jewelry that often. If the person goes out often outside of work, they may be more apt to wearing jewelry outside of work. Consider the person's interests and hobbies, in addition to their job before investing in jewelry.

What Do They Like?

What the person likes should also come into play. Are they big Disney fans, do they have any children, do they (or their children) play sports, do they have any other interests? Something such as a personalized jewelry gift may be a good option. Something such as a birthstone ring or necklace, a bracelet with charms on it reflecting their style or their interests may be a good idea for this person.

When shopping for a Christmas gift this year, jewelry is a good option, but be sure to consider the person you are buying for, and their personal style, hobbies, and interests. Visit a jewelry store to learn more about your options.
