8 Jewelry Gift Ideas for Your Boyfriend’s Birthday
Your boyfriend is another year older, and he deserves a little luxury. A jewelry birthday gift can add a statement to his big day (and a staple to his wardrobe).
To check off your gift list, we’ve compiled a list of classically refined statement pieces that can work as perfect birthday gift ideas to celebrate your man.
#1 Chain Bracelet
Chain bracelets are classic, cool, and match any special occasion. And, this great gift comes in three standout styles:
Cuban Link Chains – Cuban link chains are distinct. They feature a thick chain and interlocked oval rings that lay flat against your man’s wrist or chest to create a sleek, streamlined look.
Rope Chains – This ornate style of rope chains features twisted or braided links that create striking dimensions.
Franco Chains – Franco chains are interwoven in a V-shape, resembling a zipper. It’s a reversible accessory, too. Depending on which way it's worn, your man can sport a slim chevron design or a boxier angle.
#2 Engraved Bracelet
To personalize his day—and his gift—opt for an engraved piece of jewelry. Etch it with his initials, a significant date, or a go-to quote.
When it comes to the type of jewelry you can personalize, the options are endless. Wrap up a Signet Ring that tells him how much you care, or opt for a polished Skyline Pendant that he can pair with any style of chain.
#3 Franco Chain Necklace
A classic chain necklace in 14kt gold or sterling silver is a versatile look that works for any man’s style. If you’re wondering “what is sterling silver,” make sure to read up on the topic before making your birthday gift purchases.
Choose a unique link style in a slim weight, like the Franco Chain in 2.5 mm for understated flair. Or, double the sentiment with a Franco Essentials Set that features both a chain and bracelet in a Franco design.
#4 Stacked Chain Necklaces
If your guy is the kind that likes to stay up to date with all the latest styles, he’ll want to keep up with the stacked necklace trend.
A pair of coordinating chains in different weights and lengths is the right way to ace the layered look. Deck his chain collection with:
#5 Earrings: Hoops, Studs, or All of the Above
Men sometimes hold back from jewelry because they find it gets in the way or feels uncomfortable. Earrings are a great gift option for these guys—they add instant style, yet are easy enough to wear that he’ll forget he even has them on.
If he’s ready to embrace the latest trends, there’s no need to stick to the basic single stud. Expand his wardrobe with the following birthday gift ideas:
#6 Pendant Necklace
Is the basic chain type of necklace not going to cut it? Consider a pendant necklace. Custom pendants are a unique gift option that offers limitless variety, from traditional religious icons to modern, iced-out bling.
Gift a Compass Pendant to help him celebrate all the new adventures ahead, and customize it with a chain that suits his style.
#7 Tungsten Black Ring
When you’re ready to give him a unique gift that shows your loyalty and commitment, nothing says it like a ring. Rings are also more fashionable for men than ever—just think A$AP Rocky and Harry Styles—making it the perfect gift to ring in your guy’s new year in style.
A Traditional Tungsten Ring in black worn on the index finger or pinky is a timeless and effortlessly masculine piece that can be worn every day with any outfit.
#8 Turquoise Signet Ring
A Turquoise Signet Ring is a special gift for any guy who loves a touch of Southwestern style and a splash of bold color. The sleek, sharp lines of the ring band contrast with textured turquoise for a look that’s uniquely modern, timeless, and powerful. Altogether, it’s a ring he won’t want to take off any time soon.
