BUYING JEWELLERY FOR WOMEN: A FEW TIPS FOR THE UNINITIATED – OUR GUIDE
Buying jewellery for girls is tricky because some women are incredibly discerning about what they wear. A woman curates her accessories as much as a rare item collector would. If you have not paid much attention to your girlfriend’s accessories, you can remember the following things for your search.
Women’s jewellery fit their personality
Your girlfriend would likely prefer items that reflect her personal style, so think of who she is and how she dresses. Is she traditional, preferring soft fabrics and lace? If so, pieces from the Pureshore Wildflower Collection might appeal to her. These are inspired by headland walks along the coastline and combines delicate features and romantic curves.
If she is avant-garde, the Pureshore Sundown Collection might be a better match. The pieces from the collection were inspired by late afternoons in Dorset. Remember what she wears and see how your gift fits that.
Some women have preferred metals
If you know what kind of metal she usually wears, this is a no-brainer. However, if you don’t, you will not go wrong with a gift in the more classic gold or silver. The necklace from the Pureshore Mosaic Collection has a design that appeals to many women, and it comes in four colours, including silver and gold. You can customise the type of stones to be set—they can be either black or white diamonds. Usually, lighter stones are paired with silver medals, and darker stones with gold, although this is not a strict rule.
Necklace length matters
The neckline of her clothes suggests the kind of necklace that works best with it. Does she wear low-cut clothes or higher necklines? The place where her clothes meet her neck or chest is the hemline. The safest route to go is by measuring one of her necklaces; however, if you don’t have this option, you may want to go for an adjustable chain.
The size of the pendant is also a factor when choosing jewellery for her. Is she understated? If so, a big round pendant will probably not appeal to her. Likewise, a girl who appreciates large jewellery might be underwhelmed by a single stone on a light chain.
Health is a factor
Finally, try to find out if your girlfriend chooses to wear certain metals because of her skin chemistry. Some people need to have hypoallergenic metals because their skins get allergies easily. Others might have acidic skins, which discolour certain metals. She will definitely appreciate the extra time you take in making sure she gets a gift that fits her well.
Purchasing anything made specifically for women can be daunting for a man. There are so many options available, and you might not know where to start. However, amid the stone types, kinds of metal, and the designs you have to choose, remember that you are buying this as a gift for someone incredibly important to you. Knowing your girlfriend well and keeping her interests and personality in mind should steer you in the right direction.
