There are over seven thousand languages currently being spoken, which makes over seven thousand ways to say the words “I love you.” If you’d like to present your loved one with a tangible gift to show your love, there are many options. However, handmade gemstone jewelry is a wonderfully thoughtful way to show someone that you love them. Not only is it beautiful, but handmade jewelry shows that you thought outside of the typical cookie cutter jewelry box.
How to Choose Your Gemstone Jewelry
When deciding what jewelry will best say ‘I love you’ to your wife or girlfriend, daughter or sister, mother or grandmother, or any other woman in your life, think about what she typically wears. If she is typically found wearing different rings, focus on finding her something unique to add to her collection. If she can always match her outfit with a gorgeous pair of earrings, give her a pair of earrings. If she loves mixing and matching, layering or even just wearing one necklace at a time, she’d probably appreciate receiving a necklace.
Certain occasions also call for specific pieces. If you’re going to propose marriage, you’re going to be looking for the perfect ring, and that does not necessarily have to be a diamond solitaire. Handmade gemstone rings are a unique gift for your fiancée.
It’s important to consider the recipients personal style and especially what color(s) they prefer. This will help you choose the perfect piece and the perfect gemstone.
Choosing A Gemstone Based on Color
Opal comes in many different colors, and looks beautiful raw for a more edgy, bohemian, or natural style as well as smoother and placed in a setting. Opal has hues in the spectrum of pinks, blues, whites, oranges, and greens.
Citrine is a beautiful golden gemstone that can span the spectrum of yellows. Depending on the setting, it can also lend itself to a more raw and natural style, or even be dressed up or set to look more like a classic piece.
Morganite is in the pink and purple spectrum, some with peach hues as well. Morganite is very classic and beautiful and has become a popular option for engagement rings.
Creative Ways To Present Your Gift
Regardless of whether you’re planning a marriage proposal, a birthday, a special gift for your Valentine, a Mother’s Day gift, or something else, when you’re gifting something with the message, “I love you,” finding creative ways to present your gift can add to the sentiment.
Ten Ways to Amplify the ‘I Love You’ of Your Gemstone Jewelry Gift
- Make it personal!
Personalize your jewelry piece with a name, a special date or symbol.
- Dress it up!
Put your handmade gemstone jewelry in some unique packaging. Exploding boxes, inflated inside of a balloon, or even wrapped in custom wrapping paper are all unique and fun options.
- Don’t forget the message!
Including a handwritten note or card that not only says how you feel, but why you feel that love makes your gift that much more special. A special quote or poem only enhances that message.
- Timing is everything!
Give your gift at the beginning of a surprise birthday or engagement party or even a small get together for a memorable celebration of your love.
- Tie it together!
When giving handmade gemstone jewelry, bring together an experience that goes with your gift. Gemstones are raw and natural beauty. Take your loved one on a simple lovely walk or hike, rock climbing, cave exploring or even gemstone mining!
- Make it a surprise!
Give your I love you gift at an unanticipated time or day. A surprise gift of gemstone jewelry is more special because it wasn’t expected.
- Have fun with it!
Turn your loved one’s gift giving experience into a game. Create a scavenger hunt where the jewelry is the last item to be found. Play a trivia game all about your relationship or your loved one and give them the piece of jewelry when they (not surprisingly) win the game.
- Make a gift basket!
This idea goes hand in hand with number 5, tie it together. and would be a nice addition to that. Create a gift basket that contains items following the theme of handmade gemstone jewelry. Some ideas to include in the box are: tickets to a science museum with a gemstone exhibit, loose raw gemstones, or books about gemstones. Some other nice gifts to fill out your gift basket are items that your loved one would enjoy that are the same color as your handmade gemstone jewelry gift. If you are gifting a pink/purple morganite ring, include some lilac-colored fuzzy slippers, a fun lilac coffee mug for the coffee lover, a purple book light or bookmark for the bookworm, a purple wine glass for the wine drinker in your life. Whatever she enjoys, gather some extra little fun items in the same color as your jewelry piece, and surround your jewelry box. Don’t forget to wrap up your jewelry with the same color wrapping paper and bow!
- Take a trip!
For those extra special occasions like a proposal, birthday, or even Mother’s Day (or just because!), bring your loved one on a trip – whether it’s a staycation, a weekend getaway, or the trip of a lifetime that she’s always dreamed of going on – and present her with the gift of handmade gemstone jewelry at the perfect time during your trip.
- Say it with flowers!
It may seem obvious or even cliché but giving your loved one a gift alongside her favorite flowers is always a wonderful way to say, “I love you.” You might even want to match the flowers to your gift for some extra pizazz.
Handmade gemstone jewelry, like the hundreds of pieces offered on BoiseGemCo.com, says that you wanted to give your loved one a unique and beautiful gift to show your love. Enhancing your gift with any of the suggestions above will only show her your love that much more.
