Some guys know
exactly what they will buy for their gals. Some guys, not a clue. For
those who have not a clue or for those who may have a clue but just
want some reassurance, here's a few helpful hints.
First some vocabulary lessons:
jewelry. sparkly things women can't seem to have enough of; a gift that
will bring a smile to her face for sure; always a great anniversary
handmade jewelry. made by hand. custom designed. created by one person.
custom is the key - all pieces can be adjusted to her size, style, or
birthstones. gemstones that are assigned to the month your gal was born
in. find out which stone click here.
Swarovski crystal. a crystal is a "man made stone" which comes in many
colors (since it is man made) and can substitute for most gemstone
colors. (not to be confused with a diamond, glass, or cubic zirconia)
gemstones. naturally occurring stones which usually classified as
precious and semi- precious stones.
pearls. fresh water pearls cultivated from farms.
Swarovski crystal pearls. man made (see note above)

goal of finding the perfect jewelry gift.
