4 Fantastic Tips to Buy and Care for Personalised Jewellery
But the gifting affair becomes even more exciting when the jewellery is personalised. It will show your recipient that you’ve bought the gift specially for her and she will appreciate your gesture a lot. Here are a few tips for buying personalised jewellery for her.
While buying a necklace for your fiancé, wife, sister, mom or even yourself, with theirs or your name in the pendant, it’s important to determine what length of chain you would like. This will depend on where on your or her body the name necklace sits.
Chains of necklaces normally range from 14” to 32” long, which means the necklace can sit anywhere from high up the collarbone to the lower chest. Once you decide where the necklace should sit, you can take a piece of string and wind it round your neck. Even if you want to gift the necklace to another woman, it will be approximately the same length as yours unless you or she is very fat. If you are a man and want to surprise your recipient, so, don’t want to take measurements directly, take your measurements and deduct a few centimeters from it as a man’s neck tends to be more massive than a woman’s.
Also remember that the name pendant will add to the length of the chain. Thus a 16” chain will become around 16.75” to 18” depending on the name and style. Take a look at this beautiful 45cm butterfly charm necklace by Happiness Is A Gift, for example.
2. Gifting a Personalised Necklace to Your Mom
If the woman you want to gift is your mom, you can easily measure the length of her chain and choose a necklace with a beautiful design personalised for her. Happiness Is A Gift has a fantastic idea of gifting a personalised box along with the 16” necklace with an adorable heart pendant.
While buying a bracelet for yourself or your recipient, correct measurement is very important because if the measurement is more, the bracelet will be loose and fall off her wrist and if it’s less, it will be too tight for her to be able to wear. So, you’ll have to measure her wrist size.
There are two simple methods to determine the size of the wrist.
- Measure her wrist size with a flexible measuring tape just below the wrist bone, where bracelet is normally worn.
- Wind a plain thin strip of paper around her wrist just below the wrist bone. Mark the paper with a pen or pencil where it will overlap. Measure the strip with a ruler.
Take a look at this elegant silver Forget Me Not bracelet by Happiness Is A Gift which is made from three vines, each vine twisting around the other making a delicate-looking yet strong bracelet that your recipient would love. They have a great collection of personalised jewellery for women.
4. Care Tips
If you want that your personalised jewellery should always look new and lustrous, you’ll have to follow some basic care tips.
First Apply Makeup, Then Wear Jewellery
Hairsprays, skin lotions and some cosmetics have chemicals in them that can harm your valuable jewellery. A simple way to avoid this harm is to first wear makeup and then wear the jewellery.
Take Jewellery Off while Swimming
Swimming pools and Jacuzzis are full of chlorine which can discolour your jewellery if you remain in the pool for too long. Therefore it’s advisable to take the jewellery off while swimming.
Take it Off during a Shower
Same way, while taking a shower for a long time, your soap or shampoo may dull your precious jewellery. So, better take it off.
The personalised jewellery can look like new for long if taken care of properly and you or your recipient can use it proudly.
