Know Everything About Jewelry: Gifts For Men
categories remain bona fide for men as much as they do women
(although for the more casual-minded man, earrings and necklaces are
generally an acquired taste). The key role of jewelry remains the
same: to accentuate or amplify the wearers wardrobe.
right; buy your man some jewelry. It may well be the most unexpected
thing to give him, because, typically, what man would expect jewelry?
Suppose the question to ask is: why would he even want jewelry? The
word itself conjures connotations of feminine desires, girly
interests, and womanly pursuits; that is to say, jewelry is to female
what cars are to male. Not even a self-respecting,
politically-correct, well-bred, educated soul could deny that
familiar stereotype. So might it be time for the average person to
wise up to the limits of jewelry?
obvious and oft-occurring item concerns the ring. Some prefer to call
it a band. Regardless of preference, the two words describe a
circular-shaped metal that slips onto the finger. All too frequent
are the golden ones. Ladies, give your hus-bands a little something
different. Either spice up the gold-colored traditional
rings/bands, or give them up. For what some may perceive to be a
cheap move, go for the stainless steel or tungsten bands; they at
least look different and at the same time cost less than gold. The
price a little too underwhelming? Top it off with a diamond or two.
Believe me, for what men generally like to wear, anything besides
yellow can be considered to be more than a solid match.
And if your
man is a tuxedo or suit-wearing man, then cuff links and tie clips
should need no introduction. Unlike bands, either type of accessory
comes in a variety of unique shapes. Dont be so casual in
selecting them. Decide on which of your mans suit you wish to
match, and custom pick each item for it. To give a gift that
especially goes with a favorite suit can not only be a fun challenge,
but it will also serve as a useful and long-lasting addition to the wardrobe.
Now to touch
on one of the more sensitive, yet still casual, items. Bracelets can
be just as nuanced as a band or even a tie clip. Who can say that
only women can wear them? Bracelets are like watches, only without
the watch. And watches can look bulky or even distracting; whereas a
bracelet will always be simple enough to accentuate just about any
outfit. For those men with a watch they cannot let out of their
sights, let them know that they have not one arm but two. A bracelet
on the opposite wrist is a perfect compliment for that weary wearer
of watches. Just be sure to have them fit snugly, lest it slide and
rattle like the getup of a carnival psychic.
So buy your
man some jewelry. If he likes to expand his wardrobe, cherishes a
certain suit, or just plain does not want to part with his style
collection, then jewelry is a
safe bet to enhance what he already wears.
