Is your wife's birthday coming up? Are you hoping to get her something totally unique from the jewelry store this year? If you've answered yes to both of these questions, you may want to think about adding a personal touch to that piece of jewelry you plan on buying her this year.

Here are five romantic ways to personalize the gift of jewelry.

Add Her Name

One of the simplest ways to customize a piece of jewelry for your wife is to engrave her name on it. Some of the best types of jewelry to add a name to include:

  • A bracelet or bangle
  • A pendent necklace
  • An ID bar necklace
  • A locket

If you so desire you can even include a little message with her name, like finding a creative way to tell her how much you love her.

Use Her Favorite Color

Your wife will feel loved if you give her a piece of jewelry that contains her favorite color. Whether you decide to give her a necklace, ring, bracelet, or even a watch, adding a gem in her favorite color will be a nice personal touch. Some different colors of gems include:

  • Red - ruby
  • Green - emerald
  • Gold - topaz
  • Blue - sapphire
  • Pink - rose quartz

If you want to do something colorful, you can use her birthstone as well.

Add a Special Date

Is there a special date that you know she'll never forget? Maybe it's the day you married her or the day she became a mom. If there is a special date, adding it to a necklace, bracelet, or other piece of jewelry is a great way to tell her that you'll never forget it, either.

Add a Special Place

Similar to adding a special date, you could have the name of a special place engraved on a bracelet or necklace. The place could be the name of the city you met her, or the name of the small town in which you both grew up. If you honeymooned in an exotic location, you could use that as well. Whatever special place you decide to add, there is a good chance it will bring a smile to her face.

Give Her Motivation

Is there a simple phrase that motivates her to be her best? Or maybe it's just one word that's become her mantra? Is there an inspirational text that she absolutely loves? Whether it's a phrase, a word, a quote, or precious words from a sacred text, she will love wearing it as a daily reminder.
