Bracelets are one of the best gift items to gift to a woman friend on any occasion. They are not only easy to choose, due to a wide variety available, but are also easy to shop in the last minute.
They are available in many designs and materials and range from extremely affordable to highly expensive price tags. They are extremely versatile and can be worn by a woman of any age. You can gift them on any special occasions depending upon your budget, recipient’s taste and your relation with the recipient.
Following are few tips that can help you in selecting a good bracelet to gift to a special lady:
- Firstly, keep in mind the recipient’s taste and dressing style. Remember; do not judge the bracelet according to your personal taste.
- Size of the bracelet plays an extremely critical, role while selecting. If the bracelet is too small or too loose for the recipient, chances are that she might not be able to wear it ever. Thus, all your time, energy and money will go waste.
Either ask for the recipient’s size or buy on your instinct. Many bracelets like charms can be adjusted according to the recipient’s wrist size; however, few of them, like bangles, cannot be adjusted and should be of perfect size to fit the wearer’s wrist snugly.
- Next is the material of the bracelet. This is a very critical factor, which depends on the recipient’s taste and majorly on your budget. Bracelets are broadly categorised into the following categories: Gemstone bracelet, Beaded bracelet, bangles and charms.
These are available in plethora of designs and are available in various metals like sterling steel, gold, silver, and platinum.
- Before starting your selection process, decide the material you will like to purchase. This single decision will make the process easier for you as you will be able to make a mental note of the budget you want to spend on the gift.
Decide the material depending upon the recipient’s taste, recipient’s age, the closeness of your relation with the recipient, speciality of the occasion, your intentions you want the gift to portray, and your budget.
You can choose gold as it is always in fashion and can match with any dress and on any occasion. You can choose between yellow gold and white gold, or designs containing an artistic mix of both the types. You can also choose a design which has encrusted beautiful precious or semi-precious gem stones of different colour or a uniform colour. These are best for mature women.
For young girls choose charms in sterling silver or platinum as they have a young feel to them. For an older woman, choose a charming piece with pearls and crystals set in platinum or silver.
Apart from the above mentioned factors also keep in mind the current fashion trend while selecting the designs. When confused between designs go for simple bracelets with minimalistic look. These are best and there is no chance of you going wrong with them.
