We really are moving into an age where just about every stereotype is being challenged, broken up, and then completely broken down. Despite some lingering things that ‘guys just don’t do’ or ‘girls just don’t do’, the focus is now really on just doing whatever makes you feel happy. And that is why so many more guys are now enjoying the elegance, personalizability and charm of men’s jewellery! As demand grows, so does the creativity of the men’s jewellery designers. Today we are checking out some of the most appropriate men’s jewellery gifts for guys born in June.
There are two different types of guys born in June (speaking very broadly!) – Gemini rules from the 1st to the 21st, and these guys have yellow as their lucky colour, and their hands and wrists as the ‘ruling’ part of the body. Cancerians are born from the 22nd onward, and while their lucky colour is white, their signature metal is silver. The Inori jewellery black freedom bangle at the beginning of the article has been very popular with younger men, for its sleek, modern design. It is made by Inori, and given that Gemini guys are ‘ruled’ by their hands and wrists, we think it is very appropriate to get those digits looking good . The bracelet itself is made of stainless steel with a black ionic coating, and the diameter is 6.5cm. It is not quite a one-size fits all bracelet, but if your man has anywhere from small to medium-large wrists, it will be fine. It is also priced to suit just about every gift-er, as well!
Gemini guys are often described as being very intellectual, and being fascinated with puzzles. If you’re close to a Gemini guy, you probably find that they’re a bit of a walking puzzle themselves! Celebrate that mystery (after all, you’ll never be bored when you are around them) with the Inori Labyrinth bracelet pictured at right. The Labyrinth bracelet is made of highly polished tough stainless steel, and is actually part of a set with pendant and ring also included, both with the Labyrinth design also – you can see them in the image underneath the bracelet.
If your Gemini guy isn’t much of a bracelet wearer, cufflinks are placed in the same general area, and are just as appropriate. These sterling silver and black enamel cufflinks have a subtle, but fun design – great for younger guys who need to dress up for a formal occasion, or for a corporate job. The inner silver circle contains a genuine white diamond in each cufflink, and they’ll ship for free to you, no matter where you are in the world.
The signature metal for Cancerian guys is silver, so if you’ve got a birthday boy’s special day coming up after the 22nd of June, you need to check out the Hot Diamonds jewellery range in store. Their signature style is to incorporate one or more tiny white diamonds in every piece, using sterling silver as the exclusive metal in almost all of their gorgeous jewellery pieces. The Odyssey cross pendant comes from the Hot Diamonds range for guys; it’s a great casual piece that is also suitable for workdays, pubbing and clubbing. The sterling silver chain shown with the pendant is included, and it ships for free … so what you see on that price tag is what you get!
One of the most popular men’s jewellery items from the Hot Diamonds range is the extra-heavy necklace pictured at right. The diamonds in this piece are situated on the bar charm, so the main body of the chain is sleek and luxuriously heavy. It measures 51cm in total, so won’t sit too high or too low around your man’s neck. The sterling silver is actually rhodium plated, so if your Cancerian guy ends up with a whole box full of sterling silver jewellery that needs constant cleaning, this will be the odd piece out – the rhodium plating is similar to platinum, and prevents early tarnishing of the metal.
Gemini guys have yellow as their signature colour, and there is little in the way of yellow gemstone or yellow enamel jewellery gifts for guys … but there certainly are some great-looking yellow gold items. This bracelet is one of the few non-watch items in yellow gold on site; it is made with a stainless steel base and plated in real yellow gold. It is definitely a luxury item … but comes at a very affordable price!
White is the signature colour for Cancerian guys, and while there are a few all-white or silver-on-white guys watches about, the white dial/black band model at right from Emporio Armani watch just has a wonderful classicism that the others can’t match. This particular model has a croco-embossed leather strap, and the white dial has a hint of pearl in it … especially suitable, since the birthstone for June is actually the pearl! This model is splash resistant, and comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty and the bonus of free shipping.
