Jewelry is certainly a go-to option for Valentine’s Day gifts for women but if you’re shopping for a man, don’t rule out jewelry for your husband or boyfriend. With many top designers developing jewelry lines exclusively for men, you won’t have a short supply of options.
While a few of the items on this list are made from precious metals and are certainly a splurge, there are tons of choices that look quite expensive even though they’re moderately priced. Masculine jewelry is often designed with simplicity in mind – clean lines and shapes, minimal sparkle, and muted neutral colors. Even if your guy doesn’t have a big jewelry collection going already, these pieces won’t be intimidating as a starting point.
If none of these choices meet your needs, the options are truly endless. You can browse tons of men’s jewelry here. It’s organized for easy browsing by category (bracelets, watches, necklaces, earrings, etc.)

3. Men’s 14k Yellow Gold Diamond-Cut Rope Chain Necklace
The best part about this beautiful piece of men’s jewelry is the price tag. A gold chain with the same specs sells at department stores for over $1,000, if not more. The 3mm is thin but still has a nice weight to it (keep in mind that it’s enlarged in this picture to show the detail). You can check out the additional images to get a better idea of the length and width. The diamond cut design allows for a great amount of sparkle and is the perfect chain either worn alone or with added tags or medals. The chain can be ordered in a few various lengths, depending on how low you’d like it to hang. If you prefer a gold chain bracelet, you can shop some great options here.
4. Men’s Ebony Engraved Wood Ring
This ring is truly unique and has a definite masculine feel to it. It’s also relatively inexpensive so if you don’t have the budget for a big ticket jewelry item you can still gift something personalized and impressive. While some men aren’t keen on the idea of wearing an initialed piece of jewelry, this one has your initials on the interior portion of the ring. It keeps it special and sentimental, but is still an everyday piece of jewelry your guy will feel comfortable wearing with friends and at work. The wood ring is super light weight, measuring one centimeter in width. It’s also protected with natural polishing wax for a lasting finish. If you’re not loving the wood finish on this ring, it’s also available in a number of various wood finishes from mahogany to sandalwood.

5. Fossil Vintage Casual Black Leather Necklace
If the guy you’re shopping for is more of a minimalist and doesn’t love jewelry that’s too sparkly, consider a necklace like this that works as an accessory without being too over the top or in your face. The tightly braided black leather keeps the strand small in its diameter and it’s accented with a few steel simple beads. It provides a clean, masculine look for anyone just starting to dabble in jewelry wearing. Fossil has a number of well-made jewelry options for men. If this necklace isn’t quite your style, shop some other Fossil jewelry for men and you’re sure to find a piece that works.
6. Stainless Steel Black Cable Bracelet With 10k Yellow Gold Accents
If you’re looking for a really masculine piece of jewelry that can’t be confused with something a woman might wear, this is definitely that piece. While the bracelet is made of stainless steel, it does have 10k gold screws which makes it look higher end and more expensive than its reasonable price. It can certainly be added to a dressed up look and can even be worn opposite of a nice watch. On the other hand, it’s versatile enough to be worn with everyday clothes, either to dinner or the office. The bracelet comes packaged in a lovely jewelry box ready to gift. If you’re looking for a really unique design, check out this black cable link bracelet made of tungsten.

8. Giles & Brother Men’s Railroad Spike Cuff Bracelet
This simple cuff bracelet is made to look just like a railroad spike. It’s a really creative and unique piece that’s still simple enough to be worn daily. It’s available in classic brass (pictured above) as well as rose gold. Both colors measure approximately an eighth of an inch wide and the diameter of the bracelet can be adjusted by slightly stretching the metal. If this design is a bit too dainty, check out the thicker version from the same designer which has a bit more weight to it.
9. Fossil Touchscreen Tan Leather Smartwatch
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to splurge on a smartwatch for your guy. Of course it tells time, but it also does so much more and is something that he will use for just about everything. There are so many amazing smartwatches on the market that it’s hard to pick a favorite. The apple watch is a popular choice for people who don’t mind a sportier look, but if you want something that looks a bit more like your standard leather watch, this Fossil one is a great option. With this watch you can stay connected with display notifications for texts, calls, emails, and app updates. You can control your music through apps like Spotify, Pandora, Soundcloud, iTunes, or Apple Music and most importantly, you can track your everyday activity including steps, distance, and calories burned. The straps are interchangeable and you can swap this one out for any other 22mm Fossil band.
10. Peugeot Real Working Watch Cufflinks
How awesome are these unique cufflinks that actually function as timepieces? Each cufflink is made with accurate quartz movement, manufactured by Seiko. Peugeot offers a lifetime warranty and free lifetime battery replacement so you can be sure that your cufflinks are always working properly. In addition to the black and gold design, these are also available in gold and white, black and silver, and white and silver, if you have a different color preference or you know that your boyfriend or husband wears silver over gold.
