Whether it’s for your sister, mother, or a friend when it comes to shopping for jewellery for someone else, it can be hard to get it right. The problem is that no matter how well you know the person when it comes to jewellery, we all have unique tastes. This can make picking a piece out extremely difficult, even if it’s for your mom, a sibling or one of your BFF’s. 


While it can be difficult to find the right piece, once you do a piece of jewellery is the most precious and personal gift anyone can receive. Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect jewellery gift for your loved one.


Take note of what they tend to wear:

If you spend a lot of time with the person that you’re buying for, take note of the pieces that they tend to wear. This will help to give you an idea of the types of jewellery that they’ll like, making it easier to choose a piece. For example, if you notice that they love wearing gemstone pieces, then a pair of earrings in their birthstone could make the ideal gift.


Think about their favorite stores:

You most probably know where the person you’re buying for likes to shop - that says a lot about them and their sense of style. Take the places that they shop into account when choosing a piece of jewellery, as this should help you to select a suitable design. If they shop in fancier stores, they most probably prefer pieces that are more elegant. If, however, they’re all about the fun, then they may like designs that are bold and bright.


Ask their partner:

To ensure that the piece of jewellery you pick is right for the person, you could always ask their partner. Out of everyone, it’s them who’s most likely to know whether they will like the piece of jewellery that you’ve picked.


Ensure you get a receipt:

Obviously, you want them to love their gift, but just in case they don’t like it, get a receipt. There’s nothing worse than buying someone a gift, them not liking it, but not being able to return it. That’s why when buying the piece, it’s a good idea to check that it’s returnable. Avoid having the piece engraved or marked in any way, just in case the person that you’re buying it for isn’t a fan.
