Jewelry Gift Buying FAQs

Jewelry Gift Buying FAQs

No gift can quite communicate one’s everlasting affection like a thoughtfully-selected piece of fine jewelry. However, choosing the piece that perfectly represents your care and the gift recipient's personality and aesthetic preferences can be anxiety-inducing. However, our experts here at Lewis Jewelers have put together a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we encounter here. This will ensure your jewelry gift-shopping experience is as seamless as possible and that you leave feeling confident about the piece you select.

How Much Should I Spend?

The amount of money you should spend on a jewelry gift depends on a number of factors. First, consider your budget. No jewelry gift is worth going into debt for or putting yourself in a tight spot financially. Take into account the occasion as well. Perhaps a tenth or twentieth anniversary warrants a slightly more expensive gift than a 27th birthday or Valentine’s Day gift. Next, consider the type of relationship you hold with the recipient of the present. It might be more appropriate to buy expensive jewelry for a romantic partner, child, or best friend than for a coworker or neighbor.

How Do I Know Their Size?

Before venturing into a jewelry store, try and figure out what size they need in, say, rings, necklaces, or bracelets. Doing so can be tricky without arousing suspicion if the gift is to be a surprise. You can enlist friends' or family's help to inquire about their sizes. Or snoop through their jewelry box and measure a few pieces they wear most often. If all else fails, however, your gift recipient can always have the jewelry resized at their trusted jeweler.

How Do I Know What They Will Like?

The most important thing to consider when shopping for a jewelry gift is the personality and aesthetic preferences of the recipient. If they are boisterous and outgoing, perhaps more eye-catching and audacious pieces would suit them better than minimalist accessories. Or, if they are someone you know who tends towards neutral color schemes and clean lines, apply this to the types of jewelry you are considering. You can also take note of the pieces they wear most often and find similar styles.

What Styles Are Trendy Right Now?

Jewelry trends change as often as any other, and trying to keep up with every single one can feel overwhelming. In 2023, these are some of the trends we see a lot.

  • Pearlcore: A fresh, modern take on the classic pearl in which these soft, feminine gems are paired with edgy metal details and chunky chains.
  • Sculptural Silver: Yellow gold is now sharing the spotlight with its cool-toned counterpart. Sculptural pieces that communicate movement with organic lines and shapes are taking the fashion world by storm.
  • Bold Cuffs: Cuff bracelets are versatile and can easily slip over any sleeve. Choose eye-catching designs for a statement-making piece they are sure to love.
  • Personalized Pieces: Jewelry featuring one’s initials, birthstone, zodiac sign, or lucky number makes for sentimental gifts.
