Men might be at the top of the game when it comes to fixing something around the house or tossing up a simple pasta recipe for date night or even choosing the right movie on Netflix. But when it comes to buying jewellery for their lady, they might not be the best at it. Men have been buying engagement rings for ages now but when it comes to buying jewellery in general, it is not often their favourite thing to do.
We understand this dilemma and are here to help all the men avoid some common mistakes they make while buying jewellery for their special someone. This is sure to be of help and make sure that she falls even more in love with you the next time you decide to surprise her with a heart shaped locket. And do not be amazed if she might even be jealous of your newly acquired skill of jewellery buying!
- Do not treat it as any other gift – buying a piece of jewellery is not the same as buying clothes for her. A jewellery as a gift, comes with hidden implications like nothing else in the world of gifts. Giving a jewellery as a gift too soon in the relationship can kill it before it even starts blooming and giving something cheap will speak about you in a manner that you do not want. It is best to gauge when the time is right and buy something accordingly.
- Do not be overconfident – never assume and be overconfident of the fact that she will like it just because you have bought it. Women tend to be very picky and choosy when it comes to wearing jewellery and they will not wear just anything and everything. Her needs, wants and tastes must be taken into account while making investment in a piece of jewellery. It is best to observe the kind of jewellery she wears, where her eyes wander in the shop and which type of jewellery, she likes wearing the most. It is no use considering buying diamond pendants online when her favourite thing to wear are earrings!
- Buying jewellery is not the same as buying flowers – flowers can be given at any time and in various shapes and sizes. But this does not hold true when it comes to buying jewellery. There is a time and occasion for it and there is a huge difference between buying daisies and diamonds that men must understand.
- Size does matter, in this case at least – big is not always the way to go, especially in the case of jewellery, because size does matter. Any woman will choose quality over quality any day and it is best to go for something small yet meaningful rather than trying to go all out and buying something cheap just because it is big in size. Just because it is big does not mean it is the best thing there.
Not all men are the same and not every woman is the same. There is something that some couple will like and something that another couple might not. It is best not to follow anything blindly but also keep in mind the likes and dislikes of the person that you are buying it for. This plays a huge role in making the final choice and ensuring that you end up buying something that they really like. Also, do not be afraid to ask for help from your sister or your mother. They will give the best advice than anyone else out there!
