Couples jewelry has been taking the world by storm for quite some time. Matching bracelets, necklaces, rings, even wrist watches. Now, more often than ever, you can find some variation of jewelry sold in pairs – one for you and one for your beloved. So if you have been agonizing over what to get your better half for a special occasion, the pool of gifts for you to choose from has been significantly widened by this type of jewelry.
But have you wondered why exactly couples jewelry is so popular these days? Isn’t exchanging matching bracelets something you leave behind when the summer camp ends? Evidently not. At least judging by all those happy couples that are happily wearing their pieces of couples jewelry with big smiles on their faces.
So to ease your curiosity and the anxiety that comes with picking the perfect gift, we are about to give you 4 reasons as to why couples jewelry has wormed its way into our hearts.
1) It is an endearing commitment
Just clarify some things straight away: giving someone matching or couples jewelry doesn’t mean you are pre-engaged by default. But couples jewelry does come with a certain level of commitment. It is less official but still incredibly sweet. It says that you think of your beloved, want to wear something that reminds you of them and warms up your day. Plus, knowing how picky both men women can be about their clothes, couples jewelry shows that you know their style preferences as well as gladly share and embrace them.
2) You can give it your own meaning
Couples jewelry is quite sentimental in its own way but it’s the meaning you attach to it that makes it valuable. You can give it as a simple gift. You can also give it as a parting present if you have to go long distance for a while. Maybe, it is indeed a pre-engagement promise ring that would serve as a placeholder for the engagement one. There’s also a whole lot of options to choose from that can remind both of you about your first meeting, date, or any other happy time in your lives. The point is the meaning of couples jewelry is yours and only yours to treasure.
3) It’s a throwback to simpler times
Remember how we’ve mentioned friendship bracelets at the beginning? Well, that is sort of a point of couples jewelry. It is simple but it comes from the heart. Friendship bracelets were made by you to show someone you care for them forever when everything in life seemed so much easier. Love also makes everything simple, makes you feel lighter and happier. What better way there is to show off all those feelings than with romantic matching bracelets or any other couples jewelry?
4) You both get something to wear
This one is self-explanatory. Giving gifts to someone you love is amazing and precious. But doesn’t it get a tiny bit better when you also get a piece of that present for yourself? You now have a piece of jewelry that you’ll always have on your person, even when you are not at your fancier. Sounds like a good deal.
This list only scrapes the tip of the iceberg but it does sum up the main reasons for couples jewelry popularity quite nicely. It is the most personalized gift you can get for your beloved. It shows the immense amount of thought you’ve put into it because you get to wear it as well. It’s a bond, a promise, anything you want it to be. So get out there and finding the one pair of couples jewelry that will suit you and your boo.
