The gift of jewelry is always a great choice for showing your significant other how much you care. Whether you are celebrating your first anniversary or your 50th, jewelry is a special way to remember the day you said, “we do.” Here are a few things to consider when purchasing jewelry gifts.
1. Plan out your budget before shopping.
Your budget is important to consider as jewelry can range significantly in price. In order to have an appreciated gift you don’t have to go into debt. Your loved one will appreciate your thoughtfulness instead of looking at price tags.
2. Consider milestones.
If you are celebrating a marriage milestone the gift should be more significant and special. Looking at the “traditional” list of gifts can be an inspiration, however consider that this list is not updated to modern times and not many people will be thrilled to receive tin for a gift. This list has some suggestions on how to modernize the gifts but still stay within tradition if you are a couple that enjoys that.
3. Be personal.
If your honey has mentioned that they would love a new watch or specific kind of jewelry piece it may be a great time to surprise them with it. Think of pieces that they enjoying wearing, this can be a clue to what they enjoy jewelry wise. For example if you notice your husband enjoys wearing his silver (or white gold) watch, and not his leather watch maybe get him an updated silver watch. If your wife likes wearing stud earrings, a dangly pair may not be her style. Try choosing a different stone then she already has but in a color that she likes.
4. Have fun.
Choosing jewelry for an anniversary gift does not need to be stressful. Think about things you enjoy doing together, your significant others personality, and their favorite things and find a gift that reflects that. You can think beyond the typical diamond and pearl gifts although these are wonderful options. If your wife loves dogs a sweet gift would be a little dog charm that can go on a charm bracelet or necklace. If your husband loves wearing ties to work, a personalized tie bar can be a sweet daily reminder of your love.
