When it comes to purchasing jewelry, you do not need a lover, friend, or a relative to give you jewelry as a gift. If there is something specific you are looking for or something that you really want, you SHOULD go out and buy jewelry for yourself. Buying your own jewelry can be fun and exciting and can lift your spirits after a bad day - hello retail therapy! However, if you have never bought yourself your own piece of jewelry before, it can be a little overwhelming. There are a few things you could take into consideration to help ease your mind (and your budget) as you decide what type of jewelry you are going for.
