“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Marilyn Monroe is credited with saying this famous statement back in the 1950’s, but over 50 years later, the quote’s sentiment still rings true. Equally popular is the notorious adage, “Happy wife, happy life.” Whether you and your better half are just starting out or have been married for multiple decades being left with the task of making your lady happy is both a blessing and a potential stress. After all, are diamonds truly the way to a woman’s heart? Worry not. We’ve uncovered the top three ways to make the woman in your life sparkle with joy.

1)      Unique

The woman you’re with is special and unlike anyone you’ve ever met before. Show her how treasured she is by giving her jewelry that is one-of-a-kind. Of course, this can be tricky. There’s a fine line between flamboyantly strange and stunningly distinctive. Be sure to not cross that line by sticking to styles you’ve seen her wear. If you’re other half is fond of platinum, don’t show up with a yellow gold necklace. This might take some investigation, but after a few times of noting the accessories worn by your beloved, you’ll be ready to make a stunning choice. After you’ve established her general jewelry taste, choose something that is slightly different than the jewels you’ve seen her wear. Instead of a platinum ring laced with diamonds, try a platinum band with a stunning colored gemstone like the Elite Emerald Ring. She’ll love the piece because it incorporates both her personal style and a unique design.

2)      Surprise

This one might seem simple, but if there’s one way to make a woman happy, it’s a gift that is “just because.” Don’t wait until you’ve gotten in a fight or until the day of her birth. Instead, surprise your partner with an unexpected piece of wearable art after she’s finished a long day at work or during a weekly date night. Whatever you get her will be infinitely more appreciated because of the sweetness of your gesture. 

3)      Sparkle

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but sparkle is her favorite friend. Diamonds are beautiful and there’s no woman in the world that wouldn’t swoon at a diamond-encrusted gift, but they aren’t the only things that shine. Opt for colored gemstones, polished pearls, or elegant black diamonds next time you’re truly looking to impress your lover.
