If you are a man, buying jewelry for a woman can be intimidating if not downright frightening. Like her shoes and her sunglasses, her jewelry speaks volumes about her personality. Buy her the right pieces of jewelry and she will sparkle, choose poorly and the consequences can be unyielding and potentially disastrous. So for all you men out there scrambling to discover the perfect Christmas gift for that special woman, here is a short guide to buying jewelry and accessories.
Though easier said than done, it is a good idea to listen to what she has to say. That is, women are skilled at dropping verbal hints, only it is usually draped in ambiguity. She won’t just come out and say, “I would really like to have this necklace,” instead you need to decipher the content of the conversation you have while standing in front of the jewelry store.
Our second piece of advice is to observe her for a week. You will notice that she dresses differently for various occasions. What she wears to work is completely different from what she chooses to wear at a nightclub. Pay particular attention to the jewelry she chooses, there is probably a special piece that she wears no matter the occasion. And that is a good starting point.
If all else fails, you could always just ask. That is, ask her friends for some advice. This is dangerous ground, best if you tread lightly. Asking another woman for advice on a gift is as bad as having to ask a stranger for directions.
But our best advice, pick something from our jewelry page, you can’t go wrong.
