With pearl's popularity growing back dramatically, a traditional white pearl strand becomes a kind of must-have jewelry in each woman's wardrobe. Surprise her by giving her a piece of pearl jewelry as a special gift becomes such a romantic thing for a man to do.
However, when I imagine I must look for a PC game for my boyfriend, I understand how hard it is for a man to find right jewelry for his lover. When facing thousands of styles, where to start! As a fan of pearls working in the pearl jewelry industry, I would like to give you some hints. Start from learning some basic knowledge of pearl quality and then find out the style she likes.
Remember five factors: nacre, surface, luster, shape and size. A good quality pearl is always thick in nacre (nacre thickness higher than 0.4mm is highly recommended), smooth in surface, high in luster (mirror like luster is best), round in shape and big in size. However, shape, size and color are more for personal preference.
If you are looking for a strand, you also need to pay attention to its matching. Lay the strand into a straight line. Compare the size, color, surface, shape and luster of each pearl. A good match in these aspects results in a good strand. Also, you can compare a few strands with each other, to find out the best one. (More Pearls Knowledge)
Pearl jewelry style
When you are deciding the style, there are so many aspects to consider, such as color, pearl size and shape, pearl strand or designed pearl necklace, etc.
You may pay attention to the clothes and jewelry she often wears, or sneakily look into her jewelry collection, by which you may find out her taste and avoid buying a style she already has.
Take her to shop around. Find out the style of shops she always steps in or the jewelry she stops to look.
If you've already got some ideas but not so sure, you may seek for a chance to tactfully find out her ideas. For example, she is reading a fashion magazine, and you come to sit next to her and pretend you accidentally see a celebrity picture, then you make a fake commend, such as "This necklace is too big for her! I think a pink smaller one is better, what do you think?" or "I think this necklace looks better on you!" Women are always excited to talk about fashion. When you seem to be interested in it, she will patiently give you a full lesson about all her ideas of fashion---from hats to shoes. In the end you may skip most of the lesson, but pick up the information you want - which style of pearl jewelry she likes.
If you still have no idea, go to shop around. Ask the shop assistant to show you some feminine style of pearl necklaces or bracelets. Feminine style is universal because it is always suitable for weddings, birthday, anniversary, etc. If she likes, she can also wear everyday. Also, feminine pearl jewelry is always associated with romance and lasting-love, thus all women like it.
