    I think that having a secret wish list is the best advice for women who want to get jewelry they’ll love. Their man wants to get something that she’ll love, cherish, and showcase, but he might not have any idea what that piece should be. Most of the time, it’s going to be hit or miss, so why not help him out and make it a guaranteed hit?

    Excellent advice, Calla. I do think of Don when I look at my ring though he had nothing to do with its design. The loving spirit in which he gave me the stone is what I think of. Superb reminders for men and women in this post. Thanks!

      Lori, since you give fashion advice in your wonderful Wardrobe Wisdom business, I have to say I think Don is a brilliant husband. He gave you the diamond
      and let you design your ring. The ring that you wear everyday. The ring that your clients look at. The ring that makes you think about him with love when you look at it. I’m so pleased that you mentioned how a man can handle the engagement ring design for a fashion forward woman who has distinctive tastes.

    Calla, I loved this. My husband has bought me so much nice jewelry over the years and I think it almost gives him more pleasure than me. I’ve actually had to tell him to stop – I have more than enough. But I especially love the diamond ring I got for our 15th anniversary. After 26 years, most of the anniversaries are forgotten except this one – I remember every detail because of that ring! Thanks for this insightful post.

      Claire, your husband sounds wonderful. Thank you for sharing how your 15th anniversary ring continues to remind you of the happy details of when you received it.

    Great post – helpful information. My husband is great about bringing me gifts – even though I’m one to keep things more simple.

    We have lists and share them. I suppose it would be fun to be surprised once in awhile! :)

    I’m sure a lot of people will find this post a good reference.

      Keri, thanks for telling me about your husband and his wondrousness.
      It’s true that the wish list of jewelry does allow for surprises to be given. My male clients are so tickled to be able to choose from a number choices and please their lady-loves.
      I frequently note down multiple wish list items, so if one item is already sold there are still alternates. The excellent thing about this is that the recipient won’t necessarily remember each wish list item. And being surprised is a definite possibility. I love my job.

    Jewelry has become an integral portion of every woman’s dressing sense today. Not only does it add to the beauty of a woman, by spicing up her outfit, but it makes her feel happy.
    I myself, like the style conscious woman of today, like light jewelry like inspirational charms and sterling silver charms. I think they blend beautifully well with today’s fashion styles.
    I love receiving jewelry from my boyfriends. Err boyfriend. (In case he reads this!)

      May all your boyfriends be generous with your jewelry gifts. Err, boyfriend!
