|Raya Bowden has been interested in fashion accessories, especially rings, for 10 years. She originally became interested in rings when her passion for fashion started to bloom. She loves keeping up with the latest trends and seeking out the most glamorous and interesting styles when it comes to rings.
Raya currently works at Goldmakers, a local jewelry store in Lawrence, KS where they make most of their own jewelry.
Fashion accessories, in particular, rings, have become a very important part of my business and personal life and I hope to offer you some useful information that you can utilize when shopping for someone with similar interests.
It is important when shopping for someone interested in rings, or for just buying someone a ring, to keep in mind:
1) The occasion, is this an engagement ring or just a ring that can be used as a fashion accessory?
2) What type of color, cut and clarity do they like? Cuts range from cushion, circle, square, emerald, princess, etc. (The cut may depend on the occasion)
3) What do you think they would prefer, silver or gold?
When it comes to rings my preferences tend to focus on cushion cuts for engagement rings (the bigger the better), big statement rings (for just everyday fashion accessories) and unique colors that help complete an outfit.
While keeping in mind the recipient’s preferences when shopping for rings, it is important to understand the research that goes into buying accessories. There are many factors that go into buying an engagement ring, more than buying a simple accessory that will be used just for fashion purposes.
If you are shopping for a loved one keep in mind that quality is more important than fashion. If you are shopping for a friend or relative, fashion jewelry is the way to go. Fashion rings can be just as unique as engagements rings if you stick to the personality of the person you are shopping for. Obviously someone who is not as into fashion would probably not prefer a ring that is large and dominates an outfit. However, someone who is a fashionista may like the statement that a large ring can make on an outfit.
In conclusion, there are many factors in giving the right gift and avoiding embarrassment. These are only some suggestions and you must rely on your knowledge of the person more than anything. Good luck and happy gift hunting!
