If you haven’t been seeing someone that long, you might ask: When is an appropriate time to give jewelry as a gift? Honestly, women love jewelry (and shoes) so I don’t think there is ever an inappropriate time to give it as a gift. However, when giving jewelry there should be certain price points based on the time you have known the person. Jewelry is forever and if properly maintained it can last forever. Chances are if the relationship ends, you probably aren’t getting the jewelry back. Being that said, if you are going to give someone jewelry you want to make sure the relationship is going to last for a while or that you see a future with the person you are buying jewelry for.

If you have been dating someone for 5 months, you probably don’t want to spend $1000 on a diamond tennis bracelet, unless you can afford to do so. Before you pick out jewelry for your love, set a price point. Make sure it is a price point that you feel comfortable with then start looking for something within that price range. It is not always about that cost of the jewelry, it’s about the thought that went into it and if the piece fits her personality. You can buy her the nicest bracelet, but if she doesn’t wear bracelets than you wasted time and money. Need help finding a piece that stands out? Observe her style and/or ask her mom or her good friend. Chances are these women know your girlfriends style the best and can help you.

What ever you decide, I am pretty sure she will be happy. Good Luck!
