When to Give Jewelry in a Relationship

Posted on February 07 2020

When you embark on a new relationship, everything seems magical. You enjoy getting to know each other and discovering new things, as well as sharing laughs and learning about each others' habits. Everything is so exciting and right. If you feel optimistic about this new relationship, you may want to purchase jewelry for your significant other as a token of your affection.

How do you know if it's the right time? Buying jewelry for your girlfriend or boyfriend is a big step that symbolizes your hope for a long-term commitment. While there's no one-size-fits-all answer to when to give jewelry in a relationship, consider these tips before you make an investment. 

When Is It Too Soon to Buy Jewelry? 

"Too soon" depends on the relationship. You want to be sure that your strong feelings are returned by the person you are dating. When you have made it past the casual stage, then a gift of jewelry is appropriate. You don't have to say "I love you" to buy someone jewelry. 

Making this purchase is a sign of your deep affection, and it also means you are ready to take the next steps. There's no set length of time for when this happens. For one couple, they may know they are deeply committed within a matter of weeks. For another couple, it may take months until both people are committed to the long term. 

Keep in mind that you don't want to buy jewelry for a first date. That's too much, too soon, even if you have known the other person for years. Let the new relationship blossom and grow for a bit longer before giving the gift of jewelry.

What Type of Jewelry Should You Buy? 

When it comes to displaying your affection, any piece of jewelry will be perfect. We recommend observing what type of jewelry your girlfriend or boyfriend wears and consider these variables: 

  • Silver or gold: Most people prefer wearing one or the other, so you should stick to what your significant other prefers to ensure they wear the new jewelry.
  • Big or small: Does your girlfriend wear big earrings? Choose a chandelier-style earring over tiny studs.
  • Style of bracelet: Some women like bangles while others favor tennis bracelets. Adjustable bracelets are an excellent choice for women with petite wrists.


How to Gift Jewelry Romantically 

When you give the jewelry, you want to make it a memorable and special experience. Pick an intimate occasion, such as a romantic dinner or moonlit walk on the beach. Think about what you want to say when you present the gift to communicate how much your boyfriend or girlfriend means to you. If you are taking the opportunity to say "I love you" for the first time, say it before you present the gift so that the words sink in.
