As women, we’re conditioned from a young age to think that men are supposed to buy jewelry for us. We see ads on TV, read books, and see blog post after blog post about all the romantic ways men spoil the woman in their life with jewelry. Seriously?! I’m just supposed to wait to meet prince charming and then he’ll magically shower me in diamonds. That’s dumb! Yes, it’s great to get a gift from someone you love, but what’s to say you can’t spoil yourself? Here are the five top reason you should already be showering yourself with diamonds, sapphires, gold, and anything else you want.
You’re in good company. A study in 2012 showed that around 50% of women purchase jewelry for themselves.
You can drop hints, create Pinterest boards, and send as many links as you want, but that doesn’t ensure you’ll get the exact piece of jewelry you’ve been dreaming of. If you really love something, you shouldn’t have to use morse code. The best way to ensure you actually get what you want is to just buy it.
If it’s July 16th and your birthday isn’t until October 10th you shouldn’t have to wait for your SO to get you a pair of earrings you can’t stop drooling over. You can decide to celebrate July 16th and wear your new earrings months before your birthday even rolls around.
You’re an amazing human being and you should celebrate that every now and then. Whether you just turned 30, got a promotion, or just want to congratulate yourself for being you. You deserve to treat yourself.
