Tips for Buying Jewelry He Loves

Today is all about the guys. I spend a lot of time focusing on what the ladies like, but now it's time to focus on the men. After working many years in the jewelry business, here are some of the most helpful tips I've discovered to help pick the perfect piece of jewelry for him.

How to Pick Jewelry for Him

Consider His Style:  Just like for the ladies, pay attention to his overall style. Does he wear any type of jewelry on a day to day basis already? If so, what is it?  Does the jewelry feature any gemstones? Is the jewelry simple or bold?  When he dresses up, does he wear cuff links? Paying attention to these will help you zero in on what he likes and would feel comfortable wearing.

Consider His Lifestyle:  It is extremely important to consider his lifestyle. If he has a labor intensive, hands-on job, this should definitely factor in to the type of jewelry you choose for him—you wouldn't want any pieces that are getting in his way when working.

Pick Metals Carefully: Choosing the right metal is important for a number of reasons. You want to pick a metal that he likes, but also can withstand his lifestyle/vocation. Here are few factors to keep in mind...

  • Silver – Silver is a popular option because it’s understated and less expensive than other metals. But, it is not very durable, so it's not going to take a lot of abuse.
  • Gold – Lower carat gold is more durable than higher karat gold.
  • Platinum – Platinum is fairly durable, but can be expensive.
  • Titanium – Titanium is extremely durable. It is also lighter than gold or platinum, and 100% hypoallergenic.
  • Tungsten – Tungsten is becoming more popular in men's jewelry as it is lightweight, durable, and affordable. 

"Jewelry" for the Non-Jewelry Wearing Guy: So you might be thinking, "There is no way my guy is going to wear jewelry; I can't even get him to wear his wedding ring!" There are still options available for those men that don't wear jewelry. Cuff links and watches are available in a wide variety of styles and types that are sure to please even the pickiest guy.
