While making a gift of jewelry isn’t rocket science, there are some mistakes that you could make that would end up delivering the wrong message or even totally upsetting the recipient. Avoiding the following blunders will help your spouse appreciate the gift that you have chosen with great care and probably at great expense. The biggest mistake men make in this regard is to give jewelry too soon. Just as you wouldn’t propose to her on your second or third date, gifting jewelry at the very early stages of a relationship could cause more harm than good. Although the right timing will vary between couples, let your commitment become evident before you gift her. Some items of jewelry are so expensive that they are beyond the reach of the average man. If you got your loved such jewelry and then have to struggle to make ends meet, you can bet that she’ll not be impressed.
If you have not observed your partner closely enough, you might never really know what her idea of ideal jewelry is. Should you then proceed to spend your money getting her what you think is great jewelry, you might only get disappointed. Luckily, getting your partner’s style right is not too hard – you just need to observe what she currently wears. In situations where you know her style but gets her something different to surprise her, be prepared to explain and also make sure that jeweler you buy from will accept returned jewelry.Lying about the quality/price of the jewelry You will certainly not deliver the jewelry with the price tag on but should your partner try to find out what it is really worth, you must resist the temptation to exaggerate. The worst case scenario would be a situation where you knowingly buy fake and cheap jewelry but make it pass for something else. It is easy to imagine the direction your relationship could take thereafter. Gifting and expecting something in return. A gift of jewelry should be just that – a gift. Gifting her and then expecting something in return is equivalent to exercising undue influence and doesn’t augur well for your long term relationship.
A gift idea should always originate from the heart. Should your gift come loaded with other ulterior motives, your partner will most likely see the mischief and the consequences could be catastrophic.
