Finding sentimental but practical gifts for men can be tricky. You want to give them something that is a symbol of your relationship – whether they’re your partner, father or friend – but you want it to be something they will also want to have.
In other times, the cuff link was the go-to man-gift, closely followed by the watch. But as we move further into ironing-free living and we all look at our phones rather than our wrists to tell the time, these items are no longer as popular as they once were.
So unless you want to get your man a gem-encrusted fitness tracker, what is filling this gap in the market?
The answer is chunky, statement jewellery – the kind of rings that won’t get damaged during household tasks, from working on the car to playing with the kids. That you could imagine the toughest of tough guys wearing, whether because his girl gave it to him, or because knuckledusters are illegal.
AJT Jewellery‘s unique rings in the shape of Skulls, Lion heads, The Julius Caesar, King Tutankhamen and Zeus rings, as well as an amazing range of bracelets, necklaces and accessories for both men and women seem to be hitting the spot, especially amongst the global fashion elite. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx, Tommy Lee, Lenny Kravitz, Cara Delavingne, Joe Manganiello and Adam Lambert are just some of the global names who proudly wear Anthony’s custom made jewellery.
“Arnold owns six rings and two bracelets, and wears a one of a kind bejewelled Terminator ring with ruby eyes, which I custom made him, everywhere he goes,” says Anthony. “He has been a big supporter of my brand since day one!”
“Joe Manganiello and Tommy Lee have also been a huge supporters of the brand which feels like a dream. Both of them love the pieces and cannot go without them, I got back from Los Angeles in January to hang out with them and it was incredible to see them wearing their custom pieces!” continues Anthony.
After having hit the Hollywood lust-lists after Scott Holiday of rock band Rival Sons spotted Anthony’s work on Instagram, AJT Jewellery can now add Oscar winner and mega star Jamie Foxx to the growing list of stars wearing onstage these one-of-a-kind, Australian made pieces on stage.
Anthony uses Silver, Gold, Diamonds and Rubies and everything is made by him in Australia, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand per peice.
