Typically, when you think of diamond jewellery, you will not instantly associate it with a male audience. However, thanks to any popular stars such as Kanye West and David Beckham, diamond jewellery is becoming more and more fashionable in mainstream menswear.

When it comes to gift buying for a man, it can often be more difficult than it is when you’re buying for a woman. Buying for a woman means an abundance of shoes, handbags, and jewellery! With men, these options are often more limited.

But jewellery is still an option for men! With that said, it’s easy to overdo the look, so if you aren’t 100% certain, take a look at our tips to find him the perfect gift…

Diamond Necklaces

While some men would never consider wearing a necklace, many men love a little bit of neck bling. The great thing about a necklace is it can be as subtle or as flashy as you like. The standard length of necklaces for men is 20 inches (set to rest on the collarbone), but you might want to go for something slightly longer (22 inches).

A pendant is a great choice because they add a lot of personality. Make sure you choose a more subtle diamond – it’s sometimes easier to buy a loose diamond online so you can get perfect the look. This also adds a little extra personal touch!

Diamond Earrings

Diamond earrings are now extremely popular in men’s fashion, mainly down to the bold statements brought out by stars over the years. This now means that studs and even earrings are no longer associated with the feminine look!

One thing that you need to consider here is the diamond cut, it is important that it suits the face shape. Round cut diamonds tend to suit a long face, whilst vertical or square cuts work better with round faces.


When it comes to diamond rings, men tend to prefer something with a classy look over something glamorous. Make sure you opt for chunky bands rather than overly sparkly large stones. Try a band ring with delicate diamonds surrounding the width of the band.

Keep It Simple!

Don’t go for any outlandish crazy design! It’s important to keep any type of men’s jewellery simple, and subtle. Make sure you choose a subtle, small diamond with whatever you go for! You don’t want a large diamond that will stand out too much.

Between the elevated price tags and the technical trade lingo, it’s easy to feel out of your depth, whether you’re buying for yourself or a loved one. Keep the above tips in mind, and also consider the man’s personality when you are buying a gift.

There is no use buying someone an expensive of precious gift, for them to never wear it. You will have to try and get them something that you think you can see them wearing. If your man is a bit flashy – get him a flashy diamond! If he’s more quiet, keep in subtle and understated.
