Choosing the right piece of jewellery requires a little planning and forward thinking. You can tell so much from the style of jewellery that the lady in question currently wears. Look at her jewellery and ask yourself these questions… What colour metal does she wear – white, yellow or rose? Does she prefer stud earrings, drop earrings or either? Many women will only wear one or the other so it is advisable to check in advance. Look at the general style of her jewellery – is it delicate and fine or is it big and bold? If you can take a sneaky snapshot of her jewellery box. We can tell a lot from the style of jewellery that she wears and will be able to point you in the right direction.
Unless you are sure of the chain length that she prefers I would recommend choosing 18”. There is nothing worse than receiving a gift that is too small on Christmas morning! 18” chains can always be shortened in January if necessary. If you are planning to buy a ring, try and sneak one of her other rings out for the day’s shopping. We can measure her ring to get an approximate finger size. If you can’t get it out of the house, lie it down flat on a piece of paper and draw a circle around the inside edge of the ring – this would give us a good idea of the size. You will need to know which finger she wears this ring on. We have had thumb rings brought in as an approximate size for an engagement ring, not a good idea!
