Anyone who knows my guy and I knows that we are pretty low-maintenance when it comes to most things.
We typically prefer to use our energy on traveling and wrangling our two girls, as opposed to spending a great deal of time on things like getting ready for the day or shopping for ourselves. However, every now and then we like to look a bit more pulled together while running around.
Although messing with our parenting uniform of t-shirts, jeans (fine, yoga pants), and flip-flops is completely out of the question, we’ll sometimes throw on a nice accessory for an added bit of effort.
We’ve partnered with Jord Watches on this post to walk you through buying jewelry for a low-maintenance person step-by-step, using their gorgeous Conway Dark Sandalwood & Burgundy watch as a perfect example.
How to Buy Jewelry for a Low-Maintenance Person
1. Pick the Right Type of Jewelry
Is your easy-going friend going to want to rock a silver head chain tassel hair jewelry piece with vintage natural beads and rose gold charms? Doubtful.
2. Quality Over Quantity
The first rule of buying jewelry for someone who is low-maintenance is to pick one or two truly special pieces as opposed to a bunch of cheaper “fad” pieces. Take the time to find a piece that is crafted to perfection.
3. Classic With a Twist
You don’t want to go ultra-modern or trendy when buying jewelry for someone who is low-maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you need to be boring, either. The unique wooden watches from Jord are pretty much the textbook definition of classic with a twist: clean lines, classic cuts, with a beautifully welcomed switch from metal to wood.
4. Stick With a Neutral Base Material
Some people may be interested in figuring out how to incorporate a neon yellow watch into their daily outfit, but chances are your low-maintenance friend or partner isn’t one of them. Don’t get overly complicated when it comes to the color. When in doubt, always stick with a neutral: black, brown, grey/silver, and white all make great go-to color options.
5. Don’t Overspend or Underspend
Figuring out a price range before you start shopping will help your search be more successful. You want to find a price range that you’re comfortable with, first and most importantly, and then look for the highest quality product within that range. Remember: a low-maintanance person wouldn’t want you to overspend for them.
