4 Secrets for buying the perfect Jewelry gift for your woman😉💍💍

downloadfile-2With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, men everywhere are facing that problem: what to get the jewelry-loving women in their lives. Here are some tips to help you choose the best Valentine’s Day Gift!😉


1. Buy what she loves, not what you want to see her in.

The most common mistake men make is to focus on what they like. What you have to keep in mind is that a jewel is made to adorn the woman.The jewel is an extension of her personality. A woman will always give you some clue of what she is fond of.

2. Get her something with sentimental value.

Choose a piece of jewelry that has meaning or history, for example an infinity necklace symbolises unending love.It wilm always remind het of tge first timw you met and your love growing towards each other! And also an ID bracelet which you can engrave memories on it! (Available at CLAYTESS JEWELLERS) doesn’t need to be expensive but has a lot of meaning and history.

3. Look in her jewelry box. Better yet, look at her.

Notice what she wears most. Study your wife, fiancée or girlfriend. What does she like – gold, white gold? Which color stone, big stone or small one? Is she a delicate or a strong woman?

Take a look at what she already owns,think about whether you could actually see her wearing what you’re thinking of buying for her.Most women pride themselves on their unique tastes and sense of style.

Consider her body type. If she has a long neck, she will look better in long earrings.If she has a small head, she will most likely go for something more delicate. The most insightful comment I ever heard from a man shopping for his fiancée was, ‘She likes long necklaces to balance out her long neck and wide shoulders.’ Wow! He was really paying attention!

4. Don’t assume she likes big stones or jewelry

If she’s a pettite lady,you probably wouldn’t want to buy her chunky jewelry or a big face watch as it will look as though she borrowed! Delicate is the way to go and if your lady is chunky like me,too delicate will not sure,a little bling won’t kill😉

I Hope This Helps!!!

How to pick Jewelry to Match Your Wedding Dress

Preparing for a wedding can be quit hectic and therefore you end up forgetting the lil things that add up to your glitz and glamour!

I remember every detail of my wedding preparation! The most exciting was choosing my 2 dresses..In all that pressure i totally forgot about picking my jewelry pieces!!! I hadn’t researched on what jewelry would match my dresses( 1st gown was a white halterneck,2nd gown orange). I had to do last minute as i cant live without jewelry!

Your big day is approaching. You’ve picked out your dress and you’ve either forgotten about picking out jewelry or you’re just confused on which piece will go well with your dress.This can be a bit confusing as there are lots of options in jewelry.

GIRL! not to worry! I’ve created a list of essentials things to keep in mind when choosing your jewelry:

*Consider Your Dress Design

Wedding gowns have got different designs and therefore each dress design has a particular jewelry design piece to go with it.

Sweetheart/Strapless Wedding Dress: With this type of dress, you have two options:

i. You can wear a choker necklace with studs. If your dress has no detail,you can wear a choker with diamantez , to cause a balance!

ii. You can wear Chandalier earring ( dangle earrings with bling). This works if especially your dress has a lot of detail.

Halter Neck Dress – With this design you can focus your attention on your hair accessories,use a nice hair comb and throw in a nice matching chandalier pair of earrings or a bracelet that matches your hair comb.

Dont Over Do It

Your dress design will always guide you on the amount of jewelry to wear. I know there’s a temptetion to to throw in everything,don’t let your accessories outshine you.Remeber “Less is more”.

Match Your Metals To Your Dress Colour

Stuck on deciding wether to go with silver or gold jewelry?

A White Gown goes well with silver / platinum jewelry.

An Ivory Dress will match beautifully with gold jewelry.

A Champigne wedding dress with look stunning with either yellow gold or rose gold jewelry.

I hope this helps! Do share on the comment section below how you’ve decided to match your jewelry to your dress!!


The beauty of this gemstone is out of this world! The colour says it all!! 

 In previous centuries, an Emerald was believed to promote honesty and frugality and to hold within it the promise of new life in springtime.

Emeralds are previous stones of great value and intrigue. Their colours vary from brilliant  green to soft blue or pale leaf greens. Emeralds are mined in Zimbabwe(Sandawana mine) Colombia, Brazil, South America,Tanzania and Zambia. 

Emerald jewelry is also a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or a birthday. That special person will always remember thatt they got an Emerald in May,fot that special occassion! 


  1. Use a soft micro-fiber cloth to remove the oil and dirt accumulated on the emerald jewelry.
  2. Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and put some mild soap in it eg Sunlight liquid
  3. Use a soft toothbrush or a jewelry brush to clean off the jewelry.
  4. Fill a second bowl with lukewarm rinse water. 
  5. Dry the jewelry with a soft clean micro-fiber towel.
