The idea of anniversary jewelry for men may seem like an oxymoron, but men wear more adornment than they actually realize. This is simply because the jewelry is subtle or serves an otherwise practical purpose so that it is viewed in a separate category from jewelry.
Watches are excellent anniversary gifts for men. What piece of jewelry couldn’t be more made more masculine and yet still allow for the special touch of an inscribed underside with a loving message? Lots of watches will do, but if you want to add an inscription you will have to buy metal. Watch metals are typically aluminum or steel alloys, but the more expensive watches are made from platinum, titanium, gold or silver alloys. There are plenty of name brands that you can purchase to add to the prestige of the gift, but a watch picked up from the local jewelry store can still contain all the elements of a good quality watch without the expense of a name brand.
Anniversary rings are also popular gifts for men. They may also be exchanged between a couple that is celebrating their anniversary. These rings help to cement the relationship and renew the affirmation of commitment between the couple. These rings are also often inscribed on the inside with a message of love and affection for the lucky man. A slightly more decorative ring may be substituted and unusual rings that correlate to the man’s zodiac sign or rings that are engraved on the outside with special designs, such as the Celtic ring are becoming popular.
Some more adventurous men wear an earring or have a piercing. Getting them a special piece of jewelry to wear in this way can help to make the anniversary gift unique. When looking for this type of jewelry you’ll need to rely on your instincts for what you’ll think he likes. Is he into unusual designs or a plain stud earring? Is he allergic to certain metals? After all you don’t want to get him a piece of jewelry only to find he won’t wear it because it irritates his skin.
