Jewelry Buying: A Man's Guide

Ladies, you will want to forward this to your significant other!

For many men, buying jewelry for a woman can be very intimidating. The options to choose from are endless. There are earrings, necklaces, bracelets, different designs, gemstones and colors. All of these choices can quickly become overwhelming so this guide will make it easier for any guy to pick out the perfect piece.

First, it is essential to listen to her because many times women drop hints as to what they want. Understand what she likes. If she keeps away from big, bold, statement making pieces than you should look into classic and effortless items, such as diamond studs, diamond tennis bracelet or pearl necklace. Also, keep her personality in mind. For someone who is fun and confident, consider a colorful necklace or cocktail ring. If she is a hopeless romantic than she might love a heart-shaped pendant or a sweet and vintage inspired bow ring.

Don't be afraid to ask for help when selecting jewelry for her. Her friends and mother can probably give you some fantastic suggestions.
