Necklace as a Complement to Your Boyfriend’s Style
First of all, know your boyfriend’s fashion style. Have you ever seen him wear any jewelry before? Is he always simple, or does he want to have fun with accessories? When purchasing a necklace for your boyfriend make sure that he will appreciate the meaning that the necklace entails.
Often times necklaces for men are considered simple pieces that should look natural on them. But again, depending on your boyfriend’s style and personality, you can always give him a necklace that’s quirky and complex.
It is really important that the necklace you give your boyfriend will complement his style. This will primarily determine if he is going to wear it often. You would not want to give a gift and see it on a shelf later on.
There are several styles of necklaces you can choose to give your boyfriend. There are dog tags, simple chains, necklaces with a cross and other creative pendants.
Dogs tags were first used for military personnel. They included important information such as the wearer's name, birth date, and blood type. Other important information may have been included as well.
But now, there have been modifications on the military dog tags, and non-military individuals can wear them for fashion. If your boyfriend is interested in things related to the military, or perhaps he likes the style that dog tags add, then buy him a dog tag that matches his style.

Chains are classic pieces that your boyfriend can wear with almost anything. Chain necklace gives a stylish accent to any shirt your boyfriend wears. He can wear it over a plain white shirt or even with a suit.

The statement a chain necklace presents will also depend on the quality of its material. Go for stainless steel or white gold for a beautiful and durable piece. You may also opt to get him a sterling silver if he’s the type who wants shiny jewelry pieces.
Cross pendants, and other religious symbols, often denote the person’s faith or belief. Give your boyfriend a necklace with a simple cross pendant if you wish to encourage him regarding his religious preference.
In some cases, people still wear cross pendants regardless of religion and belief. And it’s totally fine! As long as the person loves its style then there’s nothing wrong in showcasing this type of pendant.
Men’s necklaces can be versatile and fun! Especially for necklaces with long chains, you can always experiment on what kind of pendant to include on them.
Long necklaces with big pendants are usually worn outside the shirt, to bring out the style and accent it adds to your boyfriend’s attire.
It’s important to know what length, style, and material necklace or pendant to give your boyfriend.
As a guide on buying the perfect fit for your boyfriend, here are brief descriptions of each necklace chain length.
Short necklaces are versatile and can be worn with a suit. If your boyfriend wishes to showcase the necklace, he may opt to wear it over a v-neck style shirt.
Mid-length chains will lay on your boyfriend’s collarbone and are usually bearing a plain style. These are usually a simple chain necklace.
Finally, long chains are usually the pieces that are good for pendants. These are usually worn in casual occasions.
The necklace chain you will purchase for your boyfriend could be a stainless steel chain, a sterling silver, or even gold. Bigger links of chains are common for plain style, since there will be no pendant to include in this type of necklace. For longer chains that are meant to hold pendants, the links are smaller and are fastened closely together. This way, it will be easier for your boyfriend to add pendants that he wants.
