A piece of jewellery is one of the most sentimental presents to mark a wedding anniversary. Whether your spouse is male or female, jewellery gifts are always something you can rely on to go down a treat. When choosing a jewellery gift for your husband or wife, it’s important to consider several things when selecting the right piece. There is such a wide variety of options to choose from and it can be challenging to choose down the perfect item. This guide will help you choose the best jewellery gifts for her or him.
Obviously you want to select something that the recipient will appreciate and treasure. Here are some key factors to think about when choosing your anniversary jewellery gifts for her or him. Make sure you insure your jewellery choice too.
What jewellery metal do they wear currently?
It always harps back to the silver/white gold vs gold/rose gold. What type of material do you go for. Like your marriage, you want this piece of jewellery to be with them for life. Therefore, selecting what they classically wear is the best way to go. Do they have a preference for a particular metal? Or do they mix metals, which is really on-trend to do now? Nobody knows your spouse better than you, so look at what jewellery they are always reaching for. Make sure you choose a premium jewellery piece as it’s an important celebration and recipient.
What kinds of clothes do they typically wear?
When buying jewellery as a gift for your life partner, another important thing is to pay special attention to their personal style from their clothing and jewellery choices. This will give you a decent sense of what they are comfortable with. For instance, if your wife loves dressing in delicate dresses and feminine patterns, buying them a huge chunky chain isn’t going to be right. A dainty necklace would be more suited. If they wear a lot of butterflies or celestial prints, you could match your jewellery gifts for her to these prints. Or, if your wife only wear plain, non-descript tops and trousers, it probably suggests they are uncomfortable with anything that draws too much attention to themselves. Therefore, a plain gold chain or simple stud earrings could be a good shout.
Think about their favourite colours too. If they always wear green, vintage emerald rings would be a great choice, for example.
When choosing jewellery gifts for men, take into consideration their style and how they dress. If they dress to impress in sharp bespoke tailored suits, chances are they would like a designer watch they can show off. However, if your husband is in the building trade or in a delivery driver, they will dress for comfort and practicality. Therefore, a hard-wearing leather-strapped plain watch would be more appropriate.
Keep in mind that you are shopping for them, not for yourself. It’s essential that you gift them something that they will love, even if you don’t.
Make your jewellery gifts as specific to them as possible
To show you’ve put a lot of care into your gift, make it as personalised as possible. With a jewellery gift, this could be a piece that has your wedding date engraved on it. Or a ring that has their birthstone on it. You could even go for name chains and get both your initials on it. These personal touches are so romantic too.
Can they return your jewellery gift?
If you are aware that the recipient is particular about their jewellery, or if you simply want to give yourself some peace of mind, the best way is to purchase a jewellery gift from a retailer that offers a generous return policy. This helps to ensure it can be returned if they do not like their jewellery gift. Or if it does not fit properly. They can return it and select an alternative item that better suits their tastes.
