How to Choose the Right Gift of Jewelry

Three surefire ways to choose gifts they will love.

1.       Observe the recipient. Do they have pierced ears? Are their wrists small? Are their skin tones warm and peachy toned? Or cooler and the person looks well in reds and navy? Do they wear casual clothes or work in a professional setting? Are they tall? Dramatic or quiet personality? Is the person spiritual? Perhaps a stylish cross would be a good choice.

2.       Haven’t seen the recipient for a while? Not sure of their taste? Choose simple styles in necklaces like a fine chain made of silver with a small pendant or purchase a gift certificate from a trusted on line business that sells a variety of products. Ask the vendor about popular styles for teens this year.

3.       Can family members or friends offer suggestions or guidance? When you are with the person admire a ring or watch and chat about their favorite item and why they like it so much. Do they favor unique pieces bought on a holiday? This may suggest they appreciate one of a kind jewelry made by a local artisan. Is the person of slight build or more robust? This is good to consider when selecting a necklace length.
