type of gifts for men to choose for someone special. However, time is running short since the holidays are inching closer to us each day. Are you still searching for the best gift ideas for your boyfriend? If you are, you should consider one of the most popular gift ideas this year, which is the men?s jewelry.

The jewelry making industry is continually expanding its choices of materials, styles and designs. This mean that you have a lot more choices than every before when it involves choosing popular jewelry gifts for men. However, you need to keep in mind that you will most likely be shopping for one of two kinds of boyfriends; those who already love wearing jewelry and those who never have. Shopping for either does not have to be such a challenge. What you want is to show that you did take time and put some effort into finding just the right gift idea while you build your holiday memories as a couple.

First, you need to remember to stick to the bare basics while shopping for a boyfriend who may not wear jewelry. One good example is that of shopping for cufflinks since so many men do wear them. They come in a wide range of designs and precious metals. For instance, you can find them made of anything from white and yellow gold, stainless steel, platinum and many others. You want to get him something unique and distinctive for him. For instance, he may enjoy wearing these titanium with black IP-plating cuff links.

If you are shopping for a boyfriend that already loves to wear jewelry, the experience may be much easier for you. For instance, if he already wears jewelry, you can introduce him to gemstone charms. They come in a broad variety of colors. For instance, you may want to introduce him to wearing diamonds, rubies or opals. They are easy to wear, place on a desk or attach to a wall unit. You might even want to attach it to a keychain for him. One great example is the large key with December birthstone charm in yellow gold. Giving birthstone jewelry has never been so easy and it makes a wonderful fashion statement.

Spending quality time with those you love is essential, especially during the holidays. Make a wise investment by giving the gift of jewelry to your boyfriend. He will be flattered and amazed that you do care so much, since charms are the type of gifts no one can forget!

Is bigger better when it comes to rings?

One of the biggest thing I know are engagement rings, and the bigger they get, the more expensive they certainly get. Honestly, a ring is not amazing depending on its size, but more so on the way it makes a person feel. Saying yes to a big ring is a lot easier than saying no to one.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="160" caption="Lightweight Double Link Bracelet in White Gold "][/caption]

If you present a huge ring when proposing, the girl will have that much more trouble saying no to it. It’s true, I mean, come to think of it, the more money that is invested, the more likely a person will agree. The only problem I have with this is that looks can be deceiving. A huge ring does not always mean it will work. There are people out there who want conservative and comfort over size and appearance. If interested, you can read a story about this here. Also, come check out some white gold charm bracelets. It’s just a little something to think about.

October 2010 – Charm Bracelet Contest Result

It's almost mid November already...the night is setting in so early now, by the time I get off work it's already dark! As much as I like sporting my winter wardrobe, I really do miss the summer's long day and short nights. On the bright side, winter brings a lot of family gather time and fun festivities! I can't wait until Thanksgiving dinner...and Christmas!

Back to the purpose of this post. I would like to announce the winner for our October charm bracelet contest! A very warm thank you for both our finalists and a big congratulation to our winner, Sterling from CO! Her story is very fun to read and from her story, I can tell how much she and her husband love their little girls!

For Sterling, I actually wanted to give her a #1 mom charm, however, I think this tooth charm might hold a more significant meaning; after all, she is the "tooth fairy."

Olivia Wilde on the Red Carpet

The best time to spot the stars at their best is of course at red carpet appearances. In this case, it’s Olivia Wilde at the movie premiere for The Next Three Days. Who knows if the movie is good or not what’s important is the jewelry she had on! Wilde came to the premiere wearing a ton of platinum jewelry. That seems to be a trend amongst stars at the moment.

The actress’s jewelry was mostly designed by Stephen Russell. The piece that stood out the most was a platinum bracelet that had on over 380 diamonds! It came up to be about 30 carats. Other pieces included platinum earrings with jade, onyx and diamonds. If you want to see more Olivia Wilde, you’re going to have to wait for her next film, TRON: Legacy to come out in theaters.

Jewelry for guys

If you are interested in shopping for jewelry for men, you have several options you may want to consider. Men’s jewelry has certainly grown over the years. They are more socially accepted and seen. We have even seen some pretty outrageous jewelry on various celebrities on the red carpet. Fortunately, not all men desire to be accessorizing in the same way. When you buy a guy you know jewelry, you need to figure out exactly what would fit their personality best. After that, identify what piece of jewelry would fit best. Earrings are great for a lot of men. For younger and older men alike, if they have their ears pierced, small stud or hoop earrings are great. Nothing too over the top such as hoops or chandelier earrings would do the trick.

Also, necklaces are great. A small thin one will make any men look a bit more sophisticated. Again, you don’t want to get too long of a necklace. It’ll steal his thunder, and you wouldn’t want to do that. The necklace should complement his outfit, not make a statement. Take a look at some good luck charms.

The right ring for the special day

There’s a set of rules when you are considering purchasing a wedding ring. You have to spend this much, it has to look like this, and so on. Well for me, there’s only one rule I can give you if you are interested in purchasing a wedding rule: throw out all the other rules. That’s right, when you are buying a wedding ring, the only rule should be that there are no rules.

You can’t even consider purchasing a wedding ring with a bunch of restrictions. How much should the wedding ring cost then? The answer is how much you want it to cost. If you are buying something, you would spend under a few conditions: cost and desire. If you can afford it, then you spend it. If you can’t afford it, you spend less. You shouldn’t have to break the bank to follow some rules. Also, the look of the ring is purely up to you. You shouldn’t have to make the ring a certain way because somebody said something about how rings should look a certain way. Check out some tips here at the original article. Also, take a look at some white gold charm bracelets.

Two steps to get someone to go down on one knee

One of the things you have to remember is that before you can get a guy to buy you a ring, he has to want to buy you one. So the question is, how do you get him to propose? I just recently read this article, and it has to do with guys coming out with the various reasons why they decided to propose to their girlfriends. It seems like the majority of the times, the guy has to be interested and actually feel like they will work out before he pops the question.

That in itself is pretty obvious. When a man proposes, he wants everything to be perfect. He will not jump in unless he feels that 100% of the time it will work. You can give him that security, and he’ll feel like putting in the time to getting you that exclusive ring. If you want to check out the stories for yourself, come take a look at them at the original article here. Also, take some time to check out these white gold charm bracelets.

What are November Birthstone and Zodiac Sign?

The month of November is the birth month for both Scorpios and Sagittarius. Scorpios are known to be both passionate and loyal. They make resourceful and dynamic friends. If you know a Sagittarius, then you know they are independent and exciting. Both are marked by the birthstone of November, the Citrine. The stone itself creates a warm feeling. Sometimes it is compared to the glow of the sun in a gem. The name Citrine comes from the French word, “citrin,” meaning lemon. Don’t be fooled though! Citrine is very rare and hard to find. If you do come across one, you have been blessed with the gift of hope and strength! This birthstone is a great symbol for those caught in tough times in life.

This directly correlates to the fact that both Scorpios and Sagittarius are really independent. It makes perfect sense that they go hand in hand. Scorpios are often symbolized by the scorpion, a creature known to be independent. They are also powerful, yet calm and self controlled. Sagittarius are modeled after a centaur; ½ man ½ horse. They are optimistic and love freedom. Deep down inside, you can tell they are honest and straightforward people. Both have very direct personalities. If there’s something they disapprove of, they’ll be sure to let you know. If there are no problems, they are very easy to work and get along with.

If you are looking for a gift for a Scorpio in your life, you can’t go wrong with birthstone charms. Whether you pick the Citrine gemstone to mark the date or a Scorpio zodiac charm is up to you. Both serve as great reminders of who that person is. There are multiple designs to chose from that represent the independence of a November birthday. The same goes for the Sagittarius. Zodiac charms is just as brilliant. If you are looking to make a bracelet, you may decide to put together multiple charms that show a November birth. On top of that, if you want to send a message, you can always choose to engrave your piece.

Another great idea is to attach the charm to a keychain. For instance, something like this December birthstone charm in yellow gold makes a fabulous impression.

Botswana economy built on diamonds

Some nations around the world require diamonds to drive its economy. However, diamonds are not forever in this case, as they tend to deplete from the mines. One of these places is Botswana, as while it’s the world’s largest producer of diamonds, it may also soon become the smallest. While it at the moment is the economic idol in Africa, some say that in 20 years, everything will become exhausted.

The next place for them to turn is tourism. At the moment, it has grown to become more and more important. When diamonds can no longer provide 50% revenue that is where they will be looking to for income. Some major tourism attractions include the many high-end and luxury safaris. These are engineered specifically towards the wealthy. This also includes the many inhabitants of the land as well as the animals.

What do you think of an economy built mostly on diamonds? What are the options? If you are interested, you can read more at the original article. Also, take some time to check out some yellow gold charm bracelets.

No one wants it if it's ugly!

Something most people look past when they purchase jewelry is the fact that it can be worn down. Excessive use can cause the color to fade and its value to drop. Here are some tips in keeping your jewelry fresh, always looking great for any occasion. You don’t have to spend money on purchasing a cleaning solution when instead you can make your own at home. With household materials, you can have a cleaning solution ready in no time. All you really need is half a cup of ammonia and a cup of warm water. You can soak your jewelry in it for about 15 minutes, and then rub clean with a soft cloth. You can then let them air dry on a clean linen towel.For diamond jewelry, especially things you wear everyday like silver charm bracelets, rub a small amount of white toothpaste using a small toothbrush to make it shine again. Rinse with cold water when done. The same can be done with sterling silver jewelry as well as using baking soda. Let me know if you need further tips. I like keeping my jewelry shining bright. Who wants gold that doesn’t gleam anyways?
