It’s important to know the basics of jewelry shopping for your lady all year round, but especially at the holidays. If you and the missus are at a place where this kind of personal gift is on her wish list (written or implied), you’re going to want to know what the heck you’re doing. So if you don’t know an amethyst from an emerald, or – more important – an engagement ring from a pinkie ring, this podcast is for you.
I talked with jewelry designer Bliss Lau about how to shop for jewelry for your honey this holiday season (and beyond). We especially get into the nitty gritty on going custom for engagement rings – she’s very pro, and after talking with her, I am too – so if popping the question is around the corner for you, listen up.
