Overheard at a Pool Party
This Santa Barbara Jeweler heard this and had to write about it. Friends Beth and Laura met up a pool party. Beth turned to Laura and said, “I love that ring on you. Where did you get it?”
“My husband got it for me for our anniversary!” beamed Laura.
“It looks fabulous!”
“Jake said he wanted me to know how happy he was that we’re married. Can you believe it? I was so happy!” Laura said.
“You are so lucky!” Beth said.
If You’re a Guy Reading This, Here’s Why This is Important
Women love getting jewelry from men. Always have…always will. There’s something about gold and diamonds and precious gemstones that adds to the significance of the gift.
We women are romantic creatures—some more than others. We like nothing better than to tell the story of how our husband or boyfriend surprised us with the earrings or ring we’re wearing. Seriously as a female and a Jeweler, I see first-hand what it means.
While I’m Dispensing Love Advice, Here’s a Free Bonus
And speaking of love… Woman like being told they’re loved…a lot. Probably more so than receiving gifts. Not that gifts aren’t nice, too. But know this: the gift is secondary.
The gift is the physical symbol of the declaration of the love. Give your jewelry gift with love and that story will live on in that piece of jewelry.
Gazing at Love
Every time—or hopefully most of the time—when a woman looks at her wedding ring or a jewelry gift, she’s reminded of the love of the man who gave it to her.
When Buying Jewelry Can You Just Close Your Eyes and Point? No!
When a Woman receives a piece of jewelry that she really likes, that is an added bonus.
My clients tell me what jewelry they like regularly. We compile “wish lists.” Can you guess what I do next? I go talk to their husbands and boyfriends! The chances are infinitesimally small that they have any idea what their wife or girlfriend likes in jewelry.
Ladies, Make Your Wish Lists
The fellas are usually overjoyed that I let them know what you like. The guys aren’t going to go and buy you a dress or a suit without you being there. They rarely know your taste that specifically. They want their jewelry gift to be worn and liked. Your guy needs a hint. Spell it out.
Make sure you have a relationship with a Jeweler and a wish list with them including your finger sizes. And let your lover man know where your secret wish list lives. Then he can surprise you.
I’m Talking to You Guys Now
Believe me, giving her a ring, or a pair of nice earrings that she’s always wanted enhances your romance.
Jewelry is better when presented wrapped as a present than just bought for her in the store. Surprise her!
Don’t Think She “Needs” Jewelry?
Guys, if it’s hard for you to confront shopping for jewelry or you don’t think she needs it, please think again. Maybe jewelry doesn’t mean that much to you, but she means much to you.
When you like someone, you give them something that you like, to share of yourself. When you love someone, you give them something that they love. That shows your love so much more.
Show her you are that special guy, give her jewelry!
