A custom necklace with initials and a heart

For The Love of Your Life

You love him more than anything, and now he can carry that adoration around with him  every day. Our XO Hidden Message Necklace, HEART Pendant, and AMPERSAND Pendant are all classic optionsand for more symbolism, you can always bookend those individual pendants with a LETTER Pendant that represents each of your initials. Not subtle enough? Coded message it is: The 143 (I Love You) Hidden Message Necklace, counts the number of letters of each word in the phrase “I love you.” It may be cryptic to others, but he’ll know what you mean.

For Your Rock

No matter what you’re dealing with, he’s always there for you. Show him how much you value that loyalty with the MY ANCHOR or I-BEAM (representing strength and longevity) pendants. If his style is more snazzy than subdued, choose the COMMITMENT Hidden Message Necklace, which features black spinel pavé along the AMPERSAND pendant design. Whichever look you choose, you’ll make it clear that you’re always happy to be his rock, too.

These modern, sleek I-Beam pendants represent precision and change, and the solid, high-polished materials have a pleasingly masculine look.

For Your Favorite Advocate

He’s a passionate supporter of many important issues and communities, and you truly admire his dedication. Honor that allegiance with the AWARENESS Hidden Message Necklace, which features a “yellow” ribbon that symbolizes commitment to a cause. If he’s a member of the LGBT community, the PRIDE or Rainbow HEART Hidden Message Necklace make meaningful gifts that celebrate his identity.

For the Tough Guy

The edgy ANCHOR SKULL Necklace, which combines the stability of the ANCHOR with the edginess of the SKULL—often donned by rock stars, A-listers, and other fashion insiders—is a favorite for men. Depending on your guy’s style, this combination can look edgy, refined, or fierce (or all three!). If he’s more about inner toughness than outer, use the LETTER Pendants to spell out a one-word mantra that inspires him, like “DEFY” or “COURAGE.”
