A Man’s Guide to Jewelry Gift Giving

Dev Valencia 2Buying Jewelry for Your Girlfriend

The language of jewelry is mystifying to a lot of guys. Bevel-set, filigreed, token-style… the list goes on. So when faced with the prospect of buying jewelry for a woman, most men shy away. With so many choices available, there are seemingly zillions of ways to miss the mark and get it all wrong.

Just like her hairstyle and wardrobe, a woman’s jewelry speaks directly to her personal style and taste. Is she a classic girl, bohemian chic, or does she lean toward bold, glamorous pieces? Don’t settle for the first decent looking trinket you find at the mall — here are some tips on how to surprise that special girl in your life with something she’ll adore.

Appraise her taste

Spend at least a week taking special note of how she dresses for work, social gatherings and date nights. Does she accessorize with chunky bracelets, stud earrings or stackable rings? This info will give you a head start when choosing a piece that catches her eye. If necklaces aren’t part of her usual repertoire, there’s no point in considering one when you’re jewelry shopping. 

Scope out her Pinterest page

For some quick insight into her latest jewelry crushes, check out her Pinterest page. Chances are she has pinned some of her favorite looks, providing valuable clues about her style.

Go with her favorite color

Chances are your wife or girlfriend has a favorite color, or palate of hues to which she gravitates. Whether she loves earth tones or bright shades, keep within these parameters to pick a piece that will seamlessly integrate with her jewelry collection.

Ask for advice

Don’t hesitate to ask for a little guidance. While her family and close friends are a good start, the knowledgeable team at F. Silverman has been helping clients for more than 25 years, and has a running inventory of some gorgeous trinkets that will stun even the pickiest of princesses!
