Jewellery – it ranges from simple leather or even wooden pieces all the way up to eighteen karat gold rings costing tens of thousands of dollars with their gemstones. Many seem to know what to get when it comes to buying these typically expensive body decorations, yet we seem to struggle more when it comes to men. I mean, you can only buy so many watches, right? Here we will give a quick guide on how to know what to buy for the man in your life.
Keep an open mind
To many, it seems that male jewellery is just watches and occasionally a ring. This opinion isn’t too helpful as some people may not even think to look at other items. When buying jewellery for anyone it is important to shop around and make sure you know all your options so you can make a more informed decision. Keep in mind the things that they might enjoy. If they’re into the “survival” type activities a simple para-cord bracelet may be appreciated. Maybe a favorite sports team or even color can help you pick. Other hobbies and interests can also influence your choice, keep an eye out!
This is an important one, as it is all about the person you’re buying for. As with all people, not even limited to jewellery: you have to know what they like. You don’t cook steak for your vegan friend. This being said, it can be hard for some to know what to get, especially if you can’t ask. (Maybe it’s a surprise.) There are actually many different “profiles” that may work as guidelines to help you make a decision. Of course, these may not be 100% accurate, but some information is always better than none.
The “manly” types
You know these guys, the contract workers, handymen… lumberjacks? Of course again, this is a generalization. If you’re getting something for this kind of guy, it’s gotta be big, like him of course. There are many “industrial” looking rings which may work well with their look. Wooden carvings on leather necklaces may work well too.
The trendy and fashion savvy.
Straying some from our first type, these guys tend to be more open with their fashion choices. They’re happy to stick with trends or even play around with their own style. More decorative rings with engravings may be a fitting choice. Flashy chains with some kind of intricate design hanging off of them may also be appropriate.
There are also many other types to look out for, and many pieces of jewellery that can work on just about anyone. Simple rings, some two-toned or that even have spinning par At the end of the day jewellery is a personal item that can have a lot of meaning behind it. You should know about who you’re giving the jewellery to, and make it special for them. Even if it’s not necessarily to their taste, many people appreciate the thought put behind the gift of jewellery.
