Nothing can make or break the spirit of Valentine's Day more than a gift of Jewelry. Unlike a meal or theater show that you experience and then remember, jewelry is a precious keepsake ? a marker of time that a woman wears and hopefully will be a reminder of a positive experience each and every day.
If you think you might be lucky enough to find yourself receiving jewelry this Valentine's Day, and want your honey to give you jewelry you will be in love with, follow these tips to insure this February 14th will be a very lovely day indeed!
oIf you want something specific, speak up about it.
oDon't be afraid to do more than drop a hint; send email photos of a piece you want along with the jewelers contact or website information so the item can be purchased.
oIf you like to be surprised or you're not sure about the budget, pick out three or four items and say "you choose and surprise me"
oI always recommend quality over quantity for special occasion jewelry; so if the piece you want is more expensive than the budget, delete the notion that you "need" a new piece of jewelry for each and every occasion. Instead, be willing to wait a bit longer to save for something you really love or consider changing a piece of jewelry you already have and resetting an existing stone.
oRemember, you only have ten fingers, one neck and two earlobes!
Isn't it better to have a few things you love than a box of jewelry you don't wear?
