The Dos And Don'ts Of Buying Jewelry For Your Wife

Jewelry can be a gift that comes in a small package but has a dramatic impact on a relationship. Giving jewelry as a gift might seem like a simple gesture of love, generosity, and luxury, but there are unwritten rules that you need to know before you consider getting one. In order for you to make the most out of your jewelry gift and to evoke a positive and wonderful reaction from your wife, you need to know the dos and don’ts of buying jewelry for her. 


We’ll look into some of the most important ones as we go along.



Do Consider Your Wife’s Personality and Style

If you are planning to surprise your wife with a jewelry gift, you’d surely be buying it without her knowing. Thus, you need to be familiar with your wife’s physical attributes, personality, and sense of style. Whether it’s ready-made or custom jewelry, it can only shine and sparkle beautifully if it matches or compliments your wife’s personality and style. Whether it’s a ring, bracelet, or necklace, you need to carefully picture out and remember your wife’s dimensions and proportions to make the jewelry a perfect fit. You can get cues for the design and stones to add from conversations with your wife. Better yet, bring her along for a stroll at the mall or a jewelry house and let her try out and fit pieces of jewelry that interest her. Make a mental note of those that she likes and ask her questions like what she loves about the design, what’s her birthstone, or preferred precious stone. You’ll then have a pretty good idea of what to buy or order for custom jewelry.

Don’t Buy Something Out of Your Price Range

There’s nothing really bad about impressing your wife with a fancy gift. As long as the gift item is within your means, your wife will definitely appreciate the effort that you put into buying the gift. Your jewelry shouldn’t be anything grand or intricately designed. The more stones your jewelry has, the higher its price will be. There is beauty in simplicity, and more importantly, it’s the thought that counts. As a couple, both of you are looking after each other’s finances, so be also considerate and give her jewelry that exudes elegance but is not too pricey.


Do Care About the Jewelry’s Quality


Jewelry can be efficient eye magnets and attention grabbers. Think about your wife’s family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances and how they will be checking out your wife’s jewelry. Most of the time they will be looking at it up close and may touch it so make sure that you give your wife jewelry that has high quality and excellent craftsmanship. Think of it as your way of supporting her and giving her a renewed sense of confidence and air of sophistication. She’ll thank you in a lot of meaningful ways for the compliments she gets from your quality gift.


Don’t Give Her Jewelry if You are Expecting Something in Return


You’ll be forgiven for thinking that way if it’s Christmas, but on a different day, your gift should be heartily given. A piece of jewelry can be your emotional investment; you reap your rewards through the joy, confidence, and love that you see in your wife. These are the intangible yet precious rewards that you can get, which are more precious than money. So don’t expect too much about getting a gift in return any time soon. Instead, be content with seeing the bright smile and sparkling eyes that you see in your wife.     


Do Put a Significant Reason for Buying Her Jewelry


Don’t just say you bought your wife jewelry as a spur of the moment or because you think it would look good on her. Chances are you’ll look cocky and insensitive to her. Instead, make your gift in tune with significant days in your lives, like a gift for your 10th anniversary, a gift for her 50th birthday in celebration of reaching the golden years or with the simple yet powerful reason that you love her. That way, you are adding sentimental value to the jewelry and your wife will cherish that gift for the rest of her life.



There can still be a lot of dos and don’ts that we can discuss, but it would also be great if you could discover those other things yourself. Adhering to these unwritten rules about buying jewelry for your wife can mean the difference between moving to a better or worse relationship. So give these dos and don’ts a good thought if you consider buying your wife jewelry.
