Understand Your Style
Before you get, ask yourself exactly how and when you'll put on the item. There's absolutely nothing even worse than getting a pricey piece of jewelry only to have it stick around in your jewelry box unworn. To prevent buying something you will not put on, it's wise to know a little bit about your design. Do you usually put on relaxed clothing? If so, you will not get much use out of a sparkly drink ring, no matter exactly how stunning it is. Similarly, if you use mainly suits and dresses, a laid-back locket will not get much use.
