Are You Giving Your Wife A Unique Piece Of Jewelry For Her Birthday?


Have you decided that this is the year that you'll give your wife an extra-special birthday gift? Maybe you've gotten a promotion and a raise at work, or maybe you got a bonus for your work performance. No matter the scenario, from shopping in specialty jewelry stores to arranging for the services of a diamond cutter, here are some ideas that might help you.

Shop In Special Stores 

Of course, you can head to an actual jewelry store and you will more than likely find gorgeous pieces of jewelry. However, you might not find the unique look you are wanting for your sweetheart at a chain store. 

Instead of going to regular jewelry stores, think of going to places like antique shops or resale shops where you might find one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that will probably delight your wife. For example, in a resale shop, you might find a beautiful cameo brooch or a hand-painted porcelain pin from yesteryear when jewelry had a very different look than many of today's jewelry pieces.

Think of going to estate sales, too. At an estate sale, you might find a unique set that includes pearls as the focus of the jewelry design. For, you might be lucky enough to find an antique ring that has your wife's birthstone in it. Don't forget that antique jewelry can be repaired. For example, if you find a bracelet whose clasp is weak, that can be replaced with a new one that will complement the design of the bracelet. 

Arrange For Diamond Cutter Services 

Maybe you have decided that you want to design a diamond ring for your wife's birthday gift. You certainly don't have to be a professional artist to make a simple sketch of the ring you want to have made. For example, perhaps you want a heart-shaped diamond as the focal point of the ring. A diamond cutter will have the training and the skills to create that heart-shaped diamond ring. 

Maybe you found a gorgeous setting that you know your wife would like. Unfortunately, perhaps it was missing the stone that was originally in it. A professional diamond cutter will be able to cut the stone you want so that it will fit right into the setting in the ring you selected.

You might even already own an uncut diamond. A diamond cutter can follow your specifications to make that diamond into a square, a circle, or any other shape you want for your wife's jewelry piece.

Investing In Fine Jewelry

When I was looking for ways to diversify my financial portfolio, a friend of mine suggested something interesting. He said that it might be smart to invest in high-end jewelry, so I started looking into it. I found out that many of my friends and family members had done just that--invest in designer pieces that appreciated in value over time. Unfortunately, I wasn't sure what to look for. I had to spend a lot of time learning the ropes before I purchased my first piece. Check out this blog to find out more about high-end jewelry so that you know what to buy.
