Jewelry is a fantastic gift, no matter the time of year or the person. And, it’s not as if you have to be a man to buy it for another person. Women know a lot more about the intricacies or earrings and necklaces than any guy! Still, it’s easy to get lost in the excitement of buying the perfect present without thinking about the individual, and that’s when mistakes happen. Therefore, it’s vital that everyone considers the essentials of purchasing jewelry gifts.
Below are four of the main factors that should ensure the present is precisely what you intended.
Not everyone has piercings. Previous generations didn’t believe in piercings as much as the current ones do, so there’s a chance that earrings won’t be appropriate. The same goes for lip, nose, or belly button piercings. Thankfully, this doesn’t mean that you need to drop the idea altogether, rather you should narrow down the options. And, there are plenty of them, from rings and bracelets to watches and fancy headwear. By choosing from these pieces, you can ensure that your gift is on point and won’t go to waste. All you have to do is check their ears for holes the next time you see them before making a decision.
Individual pieces are generic and come with a one-size-fits-all policy. However, others such as rings and watches are less general. For this kind of jewelry, you’re going to need their specific measurements. Otherwise, there’s a high probability that the gift is going to be returned, and that will take the gloss off your present. If you aren’t sure about the person’s sizing, there are ways to figure it out without being obvious. For those who don’t have access to their other jewelry, you can always ask a friend. Best friends know stuff like this, hence why they’re close!
Age is more important than you might realize. Yes, there is a generational thing to consider. After all, older people won’t like the new styles and will prefer jewelry that’s classed as traditional or classical. But, there is a practicality to factor in too. Do they have hearing aids, for instance? If they do, earrings might not be practical as they could get in the way. Affordable hearing aids are hard to find, so please don’t ask them to choose! Alternatively, some jewelry won’t be appropriate because your mom isn’t going to love a belly button piercing. So, it’s smart to match the person with the trend for the ultimate present.
An allergy is something you probably wouldn’t consider. Usually, they’re related to food, not metal! But, some people will get rashes if their jewelry is full of materials that their body doesn’t agree with. Nickel is the most common allergy, which is why it might be safe to avoid this metal if possible. There’s nothing wrong with erring on the side of caution. As a rule, buying high-grade pieces should negate allergies as they are made with silver and gold rather than modern alloys.
Did you know about the considerations above? Are you going to remember it the next time you buy jewelry for other people?
