How to pick the perfect piece of jewellery for that special someone

There are just a few questions you need answers to in order to pick the perfect jewellery gift. And we're going to show you how to get those answers.

Jewellery is a such a personal thing that it's actually really hard to choose something that someone else will love – no matter how well you know them. Whether you're picking a Valentine's gift for your partner, a birthday present for your daughter or a Mother's Day gift for your mum, here are the steps to choosing the perfect piece. Firstly, you need to work out what kind of jewellery this person likes. If you don't already have a picture in your head of the kinds of things this person normally wears, that's fine. You can:

  • Look at what they're wearing next time you see them
  • Have a look at the most recently worn items on their dresser or in their jewellery box
  • Take a look at this person's recent pictures on Instagram or Facebook for clues. Don't look at anything older than a year – trends change.
  • See if they have a Pinterest account. They might have some ideas or styles on there that you can use for inspiration
  • Look through the brands they follow on Instagram. This could provide clues as to specific brands they like.

Now that you have a picture of what kind of jewellery they like, answer these four questions:
