    Why do women consider jewelry, "as a gift from their men", to be a cop out?

    I thought women LOVED to be pampered with jewelry! Recently my brother purchased a $500.00 diamond necklace for his wife, as an anniversary gift. A month ago, he got her an extravagant pair of earrings. For Christmas, he bought her a the most amazing looking watch, that screams "ELEGANT!"
    After he gave her the necklace, she didn't seem the least bit surprised. She wasn't at all thrilled. She said thanks, laid it down on the end table, and walked away. When he asked her what was wrong, she told him, "you just don't get it, do you?"

    No offense intended, but I think that might be an issue with your brother's wife. It's been my experience that women flip out over jewelry. Especially if you wander into a jeweler with them to browse and buy what they comment on. He might try giving her jewelry for no reason and getting her something else when it's gift giving time. Maybe she just knows what to expect. He can use her expectations to surprise her.
    Good luck to him.

    Haha this is a good one. They dont consider it a cop out women looove jewelry love it love it. But,. She  considers it a cop out because he does seems to use it as one. From the sounds of it. he has alot of money , and he just spends it thinking thats what she wants. heres a quote that fits this perfect. , " sometime a child needs your presence more than your presents"  but in this case its his wife not a child... he needs to stop buying her crap and just hold her hand give her a kiss, hold her and tell her he loves her . im sure she would love that more than anything he could ever buy.

    I LOVE getting jewelry!  But it sounds like he's giving her expensive things too often.  It may make her feel like he's paying to keep her around.  I know that's how I would feel if I got jewelry every month.  It's special if it's once a year.  I would get sick of it after a while if I got roses every day...it's kind of like that.

    Listen man,she is an unappreciative B** you know the word >hmm. She is getting what she wants from some other dude(speculation,but 53% of marriages going bad,you better pay attention.).Listen if i was your brother,i would get out now while the red flags are showing.In fact, i wouldn't want to be there for 10 years cause that's when he have to pay for the rest of his life. This is how divorce starts my friend.When the trust is gone,the marriage is a failure. Don't take my word for it;i'm not a professional.

    The answer is within, "you just don't get it, do you?". Its impossible to get 'certain' things from this gender. They do things for the reason that even do not make sense to their own wild justifications.

    Games women play.

    BEWARE!! Sometimes later they may change their decisions. Maybe its a matter of time.

    I only get jewellery when the other half screwed up and is in the doghouse. I am a girl and I do not necessarily like getting jewellery. Men tend to buy big, 'blingy' and gaudy. I like delicate barely there jewellery.

    On another note, I only tell the other half he doesn't get it ... when we are having problems ... fighting ... that sort of thing. Sounds to me like he is using jewellery or gifts as a way to express himself or say sorry. Maybe she wants him, his time, his attention, help around the house. But definitely sounds like some undercurrent is running through their marriage at the moment.

    Communication might be better than some bling ... hope it all works out for them.
