Tips on how to buy the perfect present

With Mother’s day in a couple of weeks I thought it would be a good time to list all those tips I have worked out through the years at the market helping people choose a present for someone special.

The best way to start is by looking at what the person wears on a regular basis because they obviously like that style!

Colour

The person wears predominantly one colour like black, white, grey, blue

→ go for a simple design in a contrasting or complementary colour

 

Style guide 1
Short, medium & long necklaces with matching or complementary earrings.
While the black & white colours and designs are classics the gemstones and their shapes gives these necklaces a contemporary look that will easily blend in with your existing jewellery pieces.

 

The person wears a lot of different colours

→ you can go for a wilder look and choose from a broader colour range

Brightly coloured pieces made with unusual material. Bolder designs.

Accessories & Shapes

The person tends to wear one type of accessory (earrings, necklace, rings, bracelets…) in one main shape or variation on the same theme

→ stick to that accessory, shape and / or theme

The person wears sets of matching accessories

→ get a set or add to one, for example a bracelet added to a set of earrings and pendant.

Size

Simple really if they wear big things or smaller things stay within that size range.

This is a simple check list to keep in mind when you start looking for that elusive perfect present. Happy shopping!

  1. Great tips Annaig, I can’t tell you how many times people have gifted me jewellery that just wasn’t my style or colour… it just takes a little observation to get it right.

    1. Thank you Gaby, I am sorry it came a little too late for those presents but you are not alone! I have seen many clients with that problem and was asked to modify the pieces so they could wear them. i hope this article will help for future presents!
