Simple is Just Fine

If you’re a little unsure about what to get, keep it simple. Start with a classic leather-strapped watch or a monogrammed set of cuff links. Pick items that can be worn on a daily basis to work or that will go with any type of apparel. It's more important to find the right accessory that he will use rather than hastily select something he may never wear.

Match Your Metals

Never forget to match jewelry with other accessories. Some guys can be particular about pairing their jewelry seamlessly. When buying multiple pieces, stick to a common color and don't mix up your metals. Remember that gold is a warmer, more wearable color, and silver is more neutral. For boys and teens, try copper colors and leather materials as they blend better with graphic tees and apparel.

The Symbolic Details

Jewelry can be symbolic of cultural roots or life experiences. An ornamental ring could be a sign of success while a cross pendant and other religious medals are ways to showcase your faith. Do you want to show off your super fandom? There are many watches, pendant necklaces and bracelets that feature logos and colors of your favorite college and pro teams.
