How to chose for your partner
If you’re buying for yourself, it’s not difficult to spot the jewellery you love. But if you’re shopping for a partner, it can be a little trickier.
Before you buy your innamorata a necklace, consider their jewellery preferences and personality.
Do they wear more silver, or gold, or even white or rose gold? Do they love a little bling - sparkly with diamonds and sapphires- or do they like to keep it simple?
Or are their tastes a little unusual - do they love gemstones, or quirky charms? Are their clothing choices classical - in which case, they’ll love pearls, hearts, and circle pendants, or more modern - in which case, go for bold colour?
By spending a few minutes considering your partner’s jewellery tastes, you’ll be able to hone in on what to buy them if you’re looking to adorn their neck with a piece of jewellery they love. If you don’t know off the top of your head, a quick, surreptitious rummage through their jewellery case should answer the questions for you! Try to note what pieces they wear more often, by the way - they may well have a pearl string their grandmother gave them that never gets worn, for example, so more pieces along those lines are likely to prove a little redundant.
We’ve rounded up 12 of the best necklaces which are on the market right now and will suit every style choice.
