Earrings for Her - How to Pick the Right Pair

By: Janice Wee

When you buy jewelry as a gift for a woman, whether it is your mother, your sister, a friend or someone special, make it a pair of earrings.

Why?

If you get her a necklace, chances are she wouldn't wear that necklace until she's bought a pair of earrings that match. If you buy her earrings, she'll be able to wear them right away.

Why is that so?

If she has pierced her ears, she'd probably wear earrings most of the time. Otherwise, the piecing would show.

Now for the earrings themselves. How do you know which pair would suit her best?

First, look at her overall size? If she is petite, get her something small and delicate that would be proportionate with her size. If she is big, tiny earrings would get lost on her. In that case, chunky jewelry would suit her best.

Do you want to really impress her? If you have the budget, get her . After all, diamonds are a girl's best friend and diamonds would dazzle any woman.

What sort of earrings should you get?

There are so many designs. Which would she prefer?

Although I'm partial towards drop earrings, as a gift, I'd recommend . They are the safest. Unless you know she has a preference for a different type of earring, like hoops or chandeliers, studs are your best bet. Every woman can wear them. Some women feel self conscious wearing dangling earrings while others might think they look silly with hoops but practically everyone can wear stud earrings.

Is it going to be a birthday gift for her?
I suggest you get her . There's a birthstone for every month of the year. Garnet for January, Amethyst for February, Aquamarine for March, Diamond for April, Emerald for May, Pearl for June, Ruby for July, Carnelian for August, Sapphire for September, Opal for October, Citrine for November and Turquoise for December. A birthstone is more personal as it is specially for those born in that month. Get her a personal birthstone set in earrings. Now that would be a wonderful birthday gift for her.
