Many of you (hopefully!) have been with your wives for quite a long time – there is often several years that you know each other before getting married, and then it is for life. Uh oh! This means that you will no doubt have given her quite a few birthday presents, and also used up quite a few of your gift ideas at Christmas times as well. Lucky then that you’ve decided on jewelry for her March birthday present! Jewelry is always useful, as every different piece has a different perfect context. It is never construed as a way to get her to do more housework (as the ‘useful’ kitchen appliances often are!), and jewelry simply highlights her perfect face and figure for your viewing pleasure! But what, exactly, should you get?
An easy option (but possibly an option thatyou have taken before if you have been married a long time…) is to get a piece of birthstone jewelry. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March – these beautifully subtle stones are the palest shade of trasparent blue. Their vague hints of color make them suitable for wear with many outfits, so aquamarines are a good choice for everyday jewelry that doesn’t get taken out. The aquamarine stud earrings pictured at the beginning of the article are a great example – if your time-strapped wife (and they all are – trust me!) doesn’t have a chance to change her earrings every day, these are a minimal fuss piece.
If you have already taken the birthstone route one or more times, and need to think of something a little different, then a good guidline for gift choices can be her starsign, and a little brainpower in its application. If she is born on or before the 20th of March she is a Pisces. The traditional personality for these gentle souls is a dreamy, spiritual, and inspiring one. Given this, you can look for pieces with deep colors like sapphires (still waters run deep!), amethysts, or even black pearls. The Tahitian black pearl pendant pictured is a great choice – the wave motif makes it a match for the pisces astrological symbol, which is parallel waves of water. This is an extra special and gorgeously indulgent present – if your wife will shoot you for taking this much out of the budget, then sapphires are equally lovely but without the price tag. This sapphire and diamond pendant echoes of shells washed up on the beach, encasing gorgeous treasures inside. That water theme recurs here for the Pisces!
If your lovely wife is born after the 20th of March then she is an Aries. ‘Ordinary’ Arians are firey, stubborn, born leaders – definitely not shrinking violets and very centred in the here and now! You’ll be looking for strong colours and bold styling for your Arian other half. Use the search box within the jewelry gifts for wives section to refine your search by gemstone – click on the gemstone tab and look at pieces containing rubies, garnets, turquoise, diamonds and pearls. Many other gemstones are quite delicately colored, and just a little too dainty for your strong and confident Arian! This ruby and diamond pendant is a great choice.
If gemstones just aren’t her thing, you could try something like thing beautiful stand-out butterfly pendant. Use the search box to refine your search to products without gemstones – this is under the gemstone tab. Or perhaps something like this chunky, confident 18 carat gold bracelet – it has a reassuring heaviness and a strong design that is sure to appeal to no-nonsense Aries women.
