With so many jewellery choices today, finding nice necklaces for women can be a challenge. Need a gift for upcoming birthday, Christmas, wedding or something special for a loved one? I’ve put together this guide to make selecting necklaces for women as simple as possible.
3 Steps To Choosing The Ideal Necklace …
[dropcap1]1[/dropcap1] How much should I spend?
Deciding how much to spend can be as hard as choosing the actual gift itself. Necklaces for women are made from all kinds of materials. They come in cheap plastic beads to classy pearls and expensive diamonds.
The amount you spend depends very much on the importance of the occasion and how “close” you are to the recipient. It’s wise to factor in your budget too.
Your best friend wouldn’t expect you to go into financial hardship for her birthday. At the same time, she’d probably be thrilled to know you stretched a bit for her wedding.
Remember also that a gift well received brings as much pleasure to the giver as to the receiver. Spend a tiny bit more than you think you can afford and you can’t go wrong.

If you’ve known the person a long time then this decision will be easier. Necklaces for women come in all shapes and sizes and the styles people like are infinite.
But what should you do when you don’t know their personal preferences? Try phoning a mutual friend or acquaintance. People love to help. By helping guide you they also get to share in the “gift of giving”.
But maybe you have no way to squirrel out this information. In that case make a best guess based on her skin tone, hair color, and/or clothes she wears. A decision based on color theory will make it easier to explain why you chose that gift.
Even if it’s something she ordinarily wouldn’t choose for herself she’ll still respect the gift if the reasons are valid. That way she might even discover a new style and thank you for introducing her to it.

Some materials can cause allergic reactions to people with sensitive skin. Wearing alloys for example is a potential health risk that is well documented.
Synthetic materials like plastic may not be as irritant but the long-term effects of wearing them is unknown. Plastics exude carcinogenic chemicals when heated to high temperatures. And even though body temperature is not considered high, it may be enough to activate the release of low level toxins into the skin.
Necklaces for women made from natural materials are best. Our bodies have evolved to live in harmony with our natural surroundings over millions of years. The modern living lifestyle means we’re less able to cope. Witness the skyrocketing rates of cancer caused by processed (plastic) food and sedentary living.
Look for precious gems, pearls, silver and gold. They are timelessly elegant and won’t ever cause health problems. These all come in various grades so finding necklaces for women need not be expensive. But every woman appreciates their value and values the thought behind the gift.
