Shopping for jewellery

Here is where my dependence on others, as a blind person, is much more than normal.  True it is that I can feel the piece of jewellery and that I can get an idea of what it may look like based on my memory of when I had enough vision to see it.

However, I need to ask questions such as:  Color, how does it look, and so on.  Here is where the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words comes into play.

No two persons can ever describe anything in the same way and this holds true for jewellery.  So how do I deal with this?

I choose who I ask to go with me to the jewellery store.  Of course, Mom is at the top of the list but there are only a very few others that I ask.

It is best for me this way but nevertheless it's lots of fun to go shopping for jewellery.  Feeling it is just one part of it all.  I need to ensure that it looks good on me before I buy it.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
