I have always enjoyed any special occasion involving gift giving. I enjoy receiving gifts, but I find it more fun giving a gift. Regardless of whom the gift is for, I often spend many hours trying to figure out what to buy because I try to search for something with meaning. I find it easier to buy something for a woman since I can look for something that I would like to receive. But what do you give the man in your life when he already has pretty much everything? I’m sure men get enough ties, dress shirts, and other typical items for Father’s Day, but how about something that they will want to keep for many years to come? There’s always some kind of jewelry you can give a man, even those who don’t wear it on a daily basis. I’ve put together a gift guide of 5 essential pieces of men’s jewelry. Any of these are perfect to add to any man’s collection.
You can’t really go wrong when it comes to rings, especially if it’s for the man you love. You could go with a traditional band-style ring but may choose one enlivened with an interesting design. He could wear it in place of a promise ring, or choose it as a wedding band. Your man may be like mine and not be much of a ring wearer, yet love a traditional sterling silver band with a tribal design.
If your man is a little more daring, you might consider a ring with a gemstone. It could be fun to shop for the male version of the cocktail ring, whether for daily wear or just for a special occasion. NOVICA carries a wide variety of men’s jewelry especially rings with stones: tiger’s eye, onyx, turquoise, they are all so pretty, yet masculine.
If your man is someone who doesn’t really wear jewelry, then picking out a chain is probably one of the easiest and wisest categories to purchase. A simple chain necklace is a timeless piece of jewelry. He will be able to dress it up or down and wear it for both daily wear and special occasions. If you’re looking for something with a little more design, why not go with a beautiful, heavier sterling silver chain that has a fascinating design. I’m in love with the one below. It’s on my “to buy” list for my partner this holiday season.
If you are religious, or even just somewhat spiritual, buying a religious pendant, would be a classic gift. I was raised Catholic, so to me, seeing a man with a cross around his neck adds to his attractiveness. I’m more of a fan of silver around a man’s neck. If you practice a different religion, there are plenty of other gorgeous religious charms at NOVICA.
While I was working on a list of jewelry for this post, my partner asked me to include the item below. If your man is anything like mine, preferring to live in tee shirts and jeans; listen to rock and country music and only wear silver or leather jewelry, then he may also love the bracelet below. I would actually wear it as well, or any other leather bracelet. If you’re not into this type of bracelet, then maybe a classic men’s bracelet from the sterling silver section would be a better choice.
Another item that would make the perfect gift is something that can be engraved. Since we are talking about jewelry, anything that has a flat surface could be engraved to make an excellent gift. Choose a simple pendant and engrave it with the man’s initials, or select a slightly larger piece and add a little note on the back. A classic signet ring could also be personalized this way. When it comes to engraving, the possibilities are endless!
So, when it comes to buying your man a piece of jewelry, you can’t go wrong with some of the wonderful, artisan-crafted treasures presented here. When in doubt, stick to the classics!
