Jewelry designer Wendy Mignot knows a thing or two about gift giving. Wendy’s ability to create quality items with character has led her to pages of magazine’s and to designing pieces for A-List celebrities.
To make sure you get the perfect gift for that special someone this Valentine’s Day, here are 4 tips from Wendy Mignot that are guaranteed to win their heart.
1. SIZE MATTERS.
One size does not fit all when it comes to jewelry. Wendy Mignot advises customers to keep size and proportion in mind when making a purchase. It is important that jewelry gifts are not only beautiful but also fit comfortably. When selecting a gift, determining your loved one’s size can be a challenge, so we recommend borrowing a piece from their collection to use as a guide. Many of the pieces in Wendy’s collections accommodate body types and personal style with varying sizes. Necklace sizing begins at a 14” choker-style fit and go to super long lengths depending on the piece. Bracelets especially work best when sized to fit the wrist. As a general guide, taller or large frame women can rock longer pearls and multiple layering while smaller and more petite ladies can make a single pearl stand out all on its own. Always be sure to keep in mind the size of the wearer for a necklace, bracelet or ring and remember that earrings fit everyone. If you don’t know the size, choose a piece that can be doubled, wrapped and layered to create the perfect fit.
2. DETERMINE WEARER’S PERSONAL STYLE.
Whether your loved one is more conservative,has a free-spirited gypsy style or lands somewhere in between, their everyday lifestyle plays a huge role in selecting the perfect accessory. Consider the wearer’s personal style and age. Check out some of these style makers to match up personality with the perfect gift.
3. WHEN IN DOUBT, BE VERSATILE!
When you are not sure what the recipient will like, consider choosing one of the “Versatile” pieces that offer different lengths, fashion styles and looks all in one piece. The “Wendy Signature” design as well as the “Versatile 4, 6 or 8 Pearl” necklaces can all be worn multiple ways which make them great pieces to both give and receive.
4. KEEP TO YOUR BUDGET.
It’s important to look at the type of relationship and the extent of your Valentine’s crush to determine your gift budget. For new relationships and friends, we suggest the “Coastal” Collection with pieces made from Freshwater Pearls starting at $75. Any of these beauties would make a great first impression. For the extra-special relationship, exclusive and one-of-a-kind gifts, consider the “Society” Collection with rare South Sea and Tahitian pearls.
