We often think of jewelry as the ultimate gift for women, but in actuality, the gift of jewelry is enjoyed and appreciated by men as well. Men are wearing more types of jewelry, and this trend is increasing in popularity. If you are shopping for jewelry for the man in your life — whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, holiday or special occasion — here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Know His Style
Take some time to consider what he likes and usually wears. Does he like silver or gold? Has he commented positively or negatively on another man’s jewelry? These details can give you a sense of what he will feel comfortable wearing.
Watch His Colors
Does the man in your life wear mono-tone colors, or does he mix things up with jewel tones? A man whose personal style is more subdued would probably prefer this oval face, monogrammed signet ring. A man who dresses with a touch of flair might prefer this sterling silver oval Onyx ring with Black Rhodium accent. Men who up their style game would probably enjoy this two-tone created blue Sapphire ring featuring 1/4ct TDW.
Consider the Occasion
Are you celebrating a milestone birthday? A significant anniversary? Father’s Day? A gift of jewelry can symbolize notable achievements, important accomplishments or memorialize an event. For example, you may choose to upgrade a man’s diamond band for a key anniversary, or monogram a 10K gold signet ring for an important birthday.
Be aware of the materials used to create the item of jewelry you are considering. Gold, silver and platinum are popular choices, but not every piece of jewelry is made from the same precious material. If it has more gold in it, it’s going to be more expensive. Whatever material you choose to purchase, try to buy the best quality jewelry you can afford, even if it means the piece is a bit smaller.
Buy From A Reputable Jeweler
Be wary of online jewelry stores who haven’t been in business for several years, and those with very inexpensive prices. Reputable shops list all materials included in the piece, and the quality of the stones. Take time to do your jewelry research, especially if you’re buying a piece with diamonds.
