Shop window displays are now constantly reminding us that it’s definitely time to think about buying presents (if, of course, you haven’t got them yet). To please their better halves, men usually dash to the nearest jewellery boutique but, judging by past behaviour, they often fail to do so until the last minute. To allow those male shoppers some extra time (and let their ladies to send them a link to this gift guide as a hint), I have asked several US jewellery brands to recommend what they can offer in terms of the ideal gift for less than £5,000 ($7,000). This jewellery selection accompanied by brands’ comments below is ready for public consumption. Happy shopping!
Harry Winston and Tiffany & Co. are core American brands of worldwide acclaim. There was a time when men would head straight to one of their stores but now the easiest thing someone looking for presents can do is to visit a department store. At Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue, 20-30 jewellery brands can be found all under one roof. KP
