What is the Occasion?
First, consider the occasion before buying a sentimental piece of jewelry. If it’s an anniversary, you might want to buy a ring or something more associated with them.

What Reminds You of the Event/Person?
Think of things that remind you of the event or person. You can even brainstorm if you can come up with multiple things. You can buy jewelry in all styles, shapes, and sizes so you want to be able to find something that reminds you of this event or person perfectly. You can get necklaces with paper airplane pendants, perfect for people who may have had a thing for making paper airplanes, flying real airplanes…you get the picture. There will always be something out there you can relate to the event or person. In fact, there are some companies who specialise in creating diamonds from human ashes. If you want to keep a lost loved one close, this could be the way to do it.
What is Your Price Range?
You should know your price range before you splash out on this piece of jewelry. You can get some great pieces on a budget, but you need to be smart. Make sure you know what you’re looking for in real quality jewelry. Read reviews if you need to. You don’t want to spend more money than you need to on jewelry that looks good but doesn’t last. You not only want this piece to look great, but last well too.
Can You Get it Engraved?
If you like, you can have jewelry engraved. Buy a nice piece and have the date, name, or another word/number that reminds you of the person or event. If you can’t find anything you like or anything that reminds you in the way you want, engraving is the next best thing. Something like this could even make a great anniversary gift for a partner.
