STYLING AND TEXT BY Beverly Parisi     PHOTOS by Lisa Shires

 

Men can be tough customers when it comes to holiday shopping. Some of us remember the days when the guy in our lives was happy with Old Spice or a nice tie. But most men’s desires run deeper than the mundane. Here are some suggestions for the special man on your list.

BLING FOR BOYS

Most women know what type of jewelry they like. But what about when it comes to buying bling for the man in her life?  Sergio Ackley, the owner of Sergio’s Fine Jewelers in Ellicott City, guided us through some options.

CUFFLINKS
How about a pair of enameled cufflinks ($60) featuring the logo of his favorite sports teams? Tie bars ($34) and money clips ($45) are alsobike_chain_braceletemblazoned with logos for the Orioles, Nationals, Ravens and Redskins.

BRACELETS
Lightweight silver and gold bracelets – solid, links and even resembling a bicycle chain – are making a comback, says Ackley.

 

ringRINGS
Many grooms nowadays eschew a silver or gold wedding band in favor of other metals, including titanium, cobalt and tungsten carbide. “Tungsten carbide doesn’t scratch and a lot of men like it because it stays shiny,” he says. Some rings mix metals, such as zirconium and cobalt, for a two-tone look. Wedding rings start at $300.
If you aren’t looking for a wedding ring, Ackley suggests a signet ring, made from a mold he fashioned from an antique original. The silver signet ring costs $329 and the gold is $1,400.
