When it comes to buying something special for a loved one, purchasing the perfect jewellery piece can be difficult. But, when shopping online for the best jewellery for a picky person, the difficulty level instantly increases! Whether they already have everything you could think of or they are very particular with the jewellery they like, it seems almost impossible to shop for them.
We understand this struggle, so we’ve curated a list of ways to shop for the picky people in your life!
1. Ask for Their Opinion!
The best way to understand a person’s style is by asking them. If you are shopping for their gift, create a scenario where the person must provide their opinion on a jewellery piece. This simple task will provide you with insight on their sense of style and what they prefer to wear. Something you could say is, “my mom wants to buy me evil eye earrings in gold, but I don’t know if I like them that much. What do you think?” The person will provide their opinion, which can lead you to ask more detailed questions. That way, you can get the best idea of what jewellery to buy online for them!
Be careful to not be too intrusive on their thoughts, because this might cause them to realize that the item you are mentioning, will be for them. This ruins the surprise, so we suggest asking a maximum of two questions regarding their gift and try to change the subject right after. Do not leave time for them to piece together that you are mentioning their present.
2. Talk to a Friend!
Friends are the family we chose, so they know the most about us! Use this key element to your advantage. If you know this picky person has a best friend, message them and ask for their opinion. Be sure to emphasize that the jewellery is a gift and that it is a surprise.
We suggest having multiple jewellery options to show their friend, because they may not know what your budget is and might feel intimidated to reject the only piece you show them. For example, send them a picture of stud earrings, hoops and threader earrings; this will show them that you are very versatile with what you are willing to buy.
3. Snoop Around!
If you are the best friend or significant other of the picky person, and you are hitting a brick wall for ideas, snoop around their jewellery to see what they already own. If you notice they have an abundance of rose gold pieces, try to purchase items they have the least of; try silver pieces. We suggest doing this because if they have plenty of one type of jewellery, they might not want more, so try to find something that still fits their style but add a little twist. By doing so, the chances of seeing this picky person wear your jewellery, is very high. It'll also make shopping for jewellery online a lot easier once you know what said picky person is already wearing!
4. Take a Gift Receipt!
If the steps above are out of your comfort zone, get a gift receipt. This shows the person that you tried your best, but if they do not like their gift, they can always return it and purchase something they will love. Giving people options makes them feel more at ease, and will also save you money in the long end.
