Buying fine jewellery is an investment that lasts a lifetime. Naturally you want your gift to be treasured by the receiver. What she likes may not be the same as your taste in jewellery. A special gift needs to reflect the tastes and style of the receiver even if it is not your favorite style.

Here are some tips for how to choose a fine jewellery gift that she will love:

1. Observe
Pay attention to what she kind of jewellery she typically wears for daytime and for special event evenings. If she has a big bracelet collection but rarely wears earrings, then do not buy diamond stud earrings. No matter how beautiful they are and what a great bargain, if it is not her style then they would be a waste of money.

2. Ask Her Confidants
Avoid spoiling the surprise for her by fishing around with goofy questions that she will know is meant to choose her gift. Instead, ask her mother, sister or best friend. They know what she wears and probably have heard her talk about what she wants but never bought for herself. If they have, try and buy a jewellery piece that she has secretly always desired.

  Engagement Rings

Choosing fine jewellery is exhilarating - whether it is a diamond solitaire for an engagement or a diamond necklace for a formal event. Making the choice is often more of an emotional decision than an informed choice.

5 Secrets for Extending the Life of Your Custom Made Designer Fine Jewellery

By Travis Wiebe  

When most people purchase a piece of custom made designer fine jewellery they are unaware of some of the basic requirements for keeping it clean and unscathed for years to come. It's easy to let the day to day use of jewellery allow us to become complaisant with its care, and before long these common mistakes can add up to damaged that is irreversible. With these simple tips you should be able to keep your jewellery in its original condition and pass it down from generation to generation.

The first thing to consider is that custom jewellery can have intricate designs that are susceptible to damage and dirt. Tight designs can accumulate debris, and intricate gem settings can serve as the perfect hiding places for grime. Therefore it is recommended that you do not wash your hands while wearing a custom ring, or go into the shower or pool while wearing a necklace or bracelet. The harsh chemicals typical of pools and oceans can wear down the sheen of a piece significantly, and the soaps used to keep hands clean can cloud up diamonds and other gems.

Secondly
, it's important to be mindful of where your hand is while wearing a fine ring. A simple smack against a wall can do irreversible damage to even the hardiest of gemstones, especially emeralds. Small chips or cracks can affect the brilliance of stones, and they can also significantly hinder their value. If a claw bends out of place it can be enough to cause the gem inside to rattle.
