The guys guide to jewellery shopping
September 18, 2018 • 3 min read
Some things that come with relationships can be a little daunting and shopping for anything from diamond engagement rings to anniversaries is certainly one of them. When faced with seemingly infinite choices across hundreds of jewellers in Sydney it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but a bit of simple advice can go a long way. Here are some helpful hints to get you ready for any upcoming jewellery shopping and give you a chance to find the perfect piece for your loved one at Midas Jewellery.
Think about what she wears
Their unique sense of style should guide your choices when shopping for someone else. It can be easy to choose something that you think is beautiful but that might not align with the kinds of jewellery she is likely to wear. If your lucky lady doesn’t wear any bracelets or yellow gold, it’s more likely to be a style decision than a gap in their jewellery collection. If you’re in the market for an engagement ring and you know that she loves vibrant and unusual Midas jewellery, perhaps what you’re looking for is a blue sapphire ring or a yellow diamond ring.
Try to plan ahead
Between birthdays, anniversaries and major holidays there always seems to be something important around the corner. It’s never to early to start picking things out, especially if they’ve recently pointed it out in store or saved it online. If she adores that pair of pearl earrings in the window of your local jewellery store, get in early and have the perfect gift organised for your next special occasion. Don’t miss an opportunity to get a piece of jewellery you know they’ll love because you didn’t move quickly enough! Make sure you don’t leave it until the last minute because in this case, diamonds aren’t made under pressure.
Don’t be afraid to ask
If you’re feeling totally lost, don’t be afraid to ask them for a bit of direction. Once you’ve got an idea of what they like you can narrow your search and focus on the kinds of jewellery you know they’ve been admiring. If you want to keep the gift a surprise, ask them to show you some examples of what they would like for inspiration. Once you’ve got some ideas from them, you’ll know that you’re on the right track when it comes to the final decision. If you’re still unsure, talk to the jewellers at one of our three boutique stores and fill them in. With their help, you can find the right piece for your loved one.
Take her with you
There’s no better guide than the person themselves and if you’re out shopping with them, be sure to pay attention! Let her lead the way so that you know exactly which shops to come back to. Keep an eye out for particular collections she is drawn to or similar styles that she stops to look at across different jewellers. If she asks the sales assistants about particular products, that’s generally a hint that you should keep that piece of jewellery in mind.
Remember that she is bound to appreciate the thought you put into the gift that you end up choosing but with these tips, you stand a better chance of getting it right. At Midas Jewellery we have plenty of experience helping our customers find the perfect piece for their loved one.
