The business world can become a monster for many men, entrepreneurs and executives alike. Many people strive for the infamous and seemingly unattainable 4-hour work week, but they have trouble even staying within the “normal” 40 hours. In fact, Americans are now working 47 hours a week on average… and entrepreneurs, even more than that. Add travel schedules and time alone to those extra-long work hours, and a relationship can be difficult to maintain.
Excessive work weeks can damage relationships. Most hardworking men have good intentions—they want to be there but can’t always manage it. So what tangible thing can your partner turn to for a smile while you’re away? There are more than a few reasons why you may want to consider giving your significant other something memorable – a symbol of your love.
We all know that “things” and “stuff” can’t make up for lost time, but they can help bring some much-needed (and deserved!) joy. Little reminders that say “I love you, I miss you, or I’m thinking of you” are so important for a strong, healthy relationship. From email love letters to surprise phone calls to grander gestures, there are plenty of ways to show you care no matter where you are.
When it’s time to go the extra mile, remember these five reasons why a gorgeous, unique piece of jewelry may just be the next best thing to you.
1) It’s a conversation starter. And that conversation starts with you.
When your significant wears a stunning piece of jewelry, people are bound to comment on it. When she receives the compliment, her response is likely to be: “Oh, thank you! My boyfriend (my husband, my significant other, Mitchell) got that for me!”
And then, three things happen—she thinks about you fondly, the person she’s talking to thinks of you fondly—and happiness spreads.
2) Love is an action verb.
You know this of course — love is more than a feeling, it is a verb, and an action verb at that. When you go searching for that perfect piece of jewelry, you remind her that you are a man of action, which in turn reminders her that she is loved. Actions speak loud than words. (And gold lasts longer than flowers!)
3) It will make her feel beautiful.
Perhaps, societal expectations are at play here. Although, we prefer to think women love a beautiful piece of jewelry because it is in itself, beautiful, and it becomes a reflection of her. And isn’t it fantastic to be able to help her feel her best?
4) She will know it is long lasting and valuable—-and that is the way you consider the relationship.
Money does not buy love, but the right jewels can say a lot. They require a bit of an investment, which mirrors the investment you put into your relationship on a daily basis. They’re also long-lasting and won’t wither or fade over time. They’re strong and everlasting. You may have to work long hours, but she can glance at her jewels to her remind her of you while you’re away. Give her a reason to think of you fondly, even when you’re not in the same room, town, state, or even country.
5) It will bring her joy.
A beautiful gift will automatically make her face light right up. It’s the combination of the beauty of the jewelry and the statement that you place a high value on your relationship. Knowing that you took the time to seek out a piece that fits her to a “T” will remind her that you’re thinking of her, and that your love is with her even when you can’t be.
Here’s where to start:
It’s all about finding the right piece. First take note of what she wears – does she prefer earrings? Necklaces? Rings? (If she likes rings best, make sure to find out what size she wears – although have no fear, rings can be adjusted later on if you happen to guess incorrectly.)
Next, you need to take the time to search for that “it” piece. Luckily, you can do all of your searching in one place.

Yellow 14 Karat Scroll Nuggeted Pendant With Blue Diamond — A pendant such as this becomes an automatic conversation piece—not only because of the way it looks but because of the story behind it. Alaska Jewelry’s gold nugget jewelry is one for the history books—-yes, the images of the men sifting gold from the river beds were real. What were they looking for? Gold nuggets that now make exceptional jewelry pieces.
Contemporary Gold Quartz Bangle Bracelet — Stunning. Different. Even the way it is made is unique. Eons ago, pure veins of molten gold were forced into quartz by hydro-thermal pressure caused by shifting tectonic plates, making each stone truly one-of-a-kind.
Glacier Ice Jewelry — Glacier Ice gemstones, like many of Alaska Jewelry’s pieces, come with a story. Back in the 1990’s, Alaska Jewelry’s founder discovered a gemstone that seemed to perfectly capture the same intense blue of Alaska’s Glaciers. It turns out that it was a specific kind of Blue Zircon, a gemstone that reflects more light than any other colored gem. From there, Glacier Ice jewelry was born!
Those are just a few of hundreds of options you can choose from as you’re looking for the gift of her dreams.
(Who knows? She might even buy a ring for you. Alaska Jewelry also has a large selection of unique men’s rings.)
