  1. Failing to research her jewelry taste and ring-size

Since no two women have the same style, it is important to know exactly what your woman likes so that you do not surprise her with something that is absolutely not her taste! Does she prefer a flashy piece, or a quieter shine? What color of gold is her favorite: white or yellow? Does she have any specific jewelry designers and/or brands that she follows on social media? What is the exact size of her ring-finger? The knowledge of all these details will make the shopping experience easier. You can even ask her friends about her preferences, only if you trust that they will not ruin the surprise.

According to an Investopedia article, working under a budget is okay. It allows you to set an upper limit that you cannot cross, which minimises the chances of overspending. The problem comes in when you buy a low quality piece (because of a tight budget) that will not bring about the desired response. A bigger problem is buying a piece just because of the high price that it poses. Some retailers may take advantage of a client and sell them at a higher price than quality. It is therefore advisable to do a quick research on the 4 Cs of diamonds which are cut, clarity, colour and carat weight, and also know how to identify the various types of metals associated with fine jewellery.
