It’s a conundrum as old as gemstones and precious metals.
But lo, here’s a solution by the name of Tove, a site that guides you to the right piece of ornamentation for any XX-chromosome-possessing person in your life.
The process is the important thing here, so here’s the guide:
Step 1: Choose from earrings, bracelets, necklaces or rings.
Step 2: Choose a general kind of style she favors (minimalist, bohemian, etc.). If you’re a little stumped on that one, there are helpful photos of celebrities who embody each. Gigi Hadid, for example, is a minimalist.
Step 3: Set your price range.
Step 4: Choose from any number of results that come up. You’ll find pieces from a number of designers that, let’s face it, you wouldn’t have come across on your own. You’ll get information on where the gems were sourced and where the pieces were made, and usually a couple of options for which metals you want.
Step 5: Buy the thing.
If this process fails to yield something you think she’d want, you go all manual on it and just email them. Send a photo of the lady in question and, if you think it’s cool, some links to her various social media, and they’re going to find something for you.
Step 6: Bask in gratitude. Give no credit to Tove.
