1. Quality vs Quantity
Always remember, quality>quantity. This is true with most things, and it is ESPECIALLY true with jewelery. You don't have to go all out to get something of quality. Only have 50 dollars to burn? Well, don't buy: Godiva Chocolates, small jewelery box, a bracelet and a necklace all for approximately 50 dollars. What does that leave you with? Good chocolate and cheap trinkets. If you only have 50 dollars, forget the cheap trinkets and chocolate. Just buy one decent quality item. During the holiday season, it's not too hard to find with the sales and all. You can get her a nice sterling silver pendant, ring, or earrings. Do not get her 5 bracelets that cost 10 dollars each!! Please. Oh, and make sure the metal is at least sterling silver, no stainless steel allowed.
If you're like most guys, you probably don't know what kind of jewelery to get her. To be safe, stick to something simple and elegant. Do not get her a huge ass pendant with weird designs (unless you know for a fact she likes a certain unique style). It probably looks like a toy.
3. Necklace Length
If you're getting her a necklace, make sure the chain isn't too long. This is usually the case. An 18 inch chain is probably too long to wear most simple and elegant pendants.
The internet is a good place to find a couple of items for much cheaper than retail price. Amazon.com is your friend. Surprise! It's not just for porn.
5. She tells you not to get her jewelery because you probably wont be able to pick something she likes
Take her advice.
6. Keep the receipt just in case
She might want you to take it back. Ouch!
7. When it doubt, ask a female for a second opinion
The jewelery box and trinkets will just be part of the decoration (clutter) in my room. It's okay, he tried. Your thoughts?
