You know your husband is gorgeous on the inside – whether he has a creamy middle, a sweet caramel filling or a nutty sort of center, he is your one true love! The unfortunate thing is that husbands are not as talented at bringing that beauty and style to the outside as women usually are. One easy, simple and cost effective way to give his look a little more style is not with an entirely new wardrobe, but just with a few new accents. The men’s jewelry range has enjoyed some exciting new additions – here are our recommendations for August born husbands.
Of course, there are many, many layers to your husband. Just as there are to yourself! However, August-born men tend to have one of two personal styles. Leo guys, born on or before the 22nd of August, are dramatic, bold, outgoing and creative guys. Those born on or after the 23rd of August are Virgos; a little more reserved, cool, calm and conscientious. Some call them perfectionists, some call them obsessive-compulsive … you call him ‘your old man’! For Leos, though, we love the Fossil watch at the beginning of the article. It has a creative, unusual combination of analog and digital style not seen in any other watch on site, as well as a bold, dramatic look with its large face and contrasting dial panels. It is water resistant to 100m and comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty, so will survive his sweat and splashes! It also ships for free worldwide.
Virgo guys are neat, tidy and extremely orderly. While many pieces of jewelry can be seen as extraneous and unnecessary, cufflinks are one jewelry type that actually adds to a tidy appearance, rather than cluttering it! Your Virgo guy will love the cool, clean tones of these Hot Diamonds cufflinks. They include two genuine white diamonds set in either link, as well as blue cubic zirconias set in their faces. The base metal is sterling silver, but it has been rhodium plated to enhance shine and prevent tarnishing.
We mentioned how creative and dramatic Leo guys are, and the subtle difference of this concave blue titanium ring will really stand out on your Leo husband. The indent is actually smaller than it looks, making the ring comfortable to wear as well as unique. It has an 8mm wide band, with a blue titanium center and polished natural titanium edges. Best of all, you have the opportunity to add a personal message to the ring, with up to 20 characters available for engraving free of charge! You will need to spoil the surprise for this one, though – titanium cannot easily be resize, so you’ll need an accurate finger measurement.
Jewelry doesn’t have to be complicated to stand out, or to be dramatic – for Leo men, we love the simple conspicuousness of the Inori bangle at right. In a similar style to the titanium ring above, the face of the bangle is created with a concave surface – but it is the simple vivid black which truly makes this a stand out item. The bangle is made of stainless steel, and measures 6.5cm across. The open face design makes it suitable for most men’s wrists, however. A cubic zirconia adds sparkle to the front of the bracelet, and the ‘Freedom’ spelt out across the front makes a bold, Leo-style statement! Match it up with the ‘Freedom’ pendant pictured just underneath it, also made in stainless steel and measuring 3.5cm long.
Virgos are all about coolness and calm – meaning that mental games are one of the areas in which they excel! Help him celebrate his talents with the domino-style ‘Game Theory’ pendant by Inori at right. It is made of a cool stainless steel with alternating brushed and polished coating to create the design on the front. It measures 4.8cm long, and has a stylish offset attachment that lets the pendant hang diagonally rather than straight.
You may or may not have bought your husband an engagement ring. If you didn’t, then why not make up that little inequality now? And if you did, well, even males can never have too many diamonds ! The unique men’s diamond ring at right is a gorgeous luxury item, a lovely rich accent to both office wear and evening wear (yes, they look pretty much the same if you are a man!). It is made of 9ct white gold (made without nickel, our white gold is suitable for all skin types) with patterned alternating bands around its circumference, and features a 0.08ct genuine white diamond in the center. We love it for either Virgos, who will enjoy the cool sleekness of the design, or Leos, sociable souls who can never have too many evening wear pieces!
Where the signature color for Virgo is a cool, calm blue, for Leos it is a lively, energetic orange! The color was difficult to find in men’s jewelry, until we added the Wenger Swiss watch range to our store. The orange-circled watch at right is a diving watch made to the highest military standards, water resistant to 200m and comes with a 3 year manufacturer warranty. It also has a luminous marker and hands for night-time visibility, a rotating bezel and a solid 40mm case size.
Being on time is incredibly important to Virgos – but rather than the bold, colorful toughness of Wenger, these orderly men will enjoy the technical perfection of Citizen watches. The model at right is from the Chronograph collection, and while it is far from simple or boring, it has a sleekness of design that Virgos will love. The blue dial incorporates their signature color, and the watch doesn’t only have an ocean-feel in its design, it is suitable for swimming and snorkeling at 100m water resistant. The watch also comes with a three year Citizen manufacturer’s warranty.
