Choosing Jewellery for Women

First of all, think about what type of jewellery she tends to wear, mostly gold or mostly silver? Most women either mainly wear gold, or mainly wear silver jewellery.
Does she wear necklaces? Bracelets? Earrings? If you are unsure, it might be an idea to choose a jewellery set, and let her pick what combination she would like to wear. Are her ears pierced? If you are not sure, have a look at her ears! There are clip-on earrings that are suitable for both pierced and non-pierced ears.


What colour stones does she tend to have on her jewellery? Also consider what colour clothes she normally wears as the jewellery needs to match or co-ordinate with an outfit. She might mainly wear plain gold or silver jewellery in which case it would be best to avoid picking any jewellery with coloured stones (you can still pick things with diamonds, cubic zirconium, and diamant√©). Does she have a favourite colour and if she does, is it a colour she wears? A piece of jewellery with her favourite colour in it is a nice way of showing that you’ve put a lot of effort into the present.

If you are thinking of buying her some jewellery for day wear, what colour clothes does she wear to work or wear casually? Jewellery worn during the day is less glitzy than evening wear. This doesn’t mean it needs to be plain, although simple classic pieces can be worn with so many different outfits. If you are thinking of buying her some jewellery for evening wear, what colour clothes does she dress in to go out for the evening? Jewellery for the evening can be bolder and glitzier than jewellery worn during the day. A diamant√© choker may be appropriate evening wear, however a less glitzy necklace may be better for daytime wear.


What type of styles does she wear? If you are looking at necklaces, does she wear chunky ones, fine ones, ornate, or simple? If you are looking at earrings, does she wear long dangly ones, or smaller stud ones? If you are looking at bracelets or bangles, does she wear narrow or wider ones? A lot of women have certain styles that they like, so it’s a safe bet to stick with the style of jewellery you know she would choose herself. The style will vary depending on whether the piece is meant for day or evening wear.

Does she have an allergy to nickel? Many pieces of jewellery contain a small amount of nickel which usually causes no problems for the majority of people, however some people can be very sensitive to it. Have a look and see what kind of metals she wears. If in doubt, stick to what you know she can wear.
