Give a token on the day to match wedding colours or their personal style. Patina Quink cufflinks and brass signet ring by Alice Made this

Gifts for your groom need to feel elegant and timeless – and ideally you should hand over something they can wear on the day. Here’s our pick of classics, from cufflinks to timepieces

Words Libby Norman

It is traditional for couples to exchange rings, but couples often like to mark the moment with extra gifts – and jewellery hits the mark because it’s timeless and can be worn for decades to come. Here, let’s face it, brides tend to get the better end of the deal (an engagement ring). So it seems fitting that grooms should get a look in. Here’s our pick of ten love tokens that should meet with the approval of your groom.

1. Love forever

Catherine Hills’ Love Knot cufflinks are a perfect symbolic gift

Jeweller Catherine Hills is known for her creative work with silver, taking inspiration from natural and organic forms. We think these rope textured Love Knot cufflinks send a timeless message of your regard. Shown here in silver, but also available in oxidised and white silver, £160;  catherinehillsjewellery.com 

2. Clean cut

This brass signet ring has a clean and contemporary profile

Signet rings are back in vogue, judging by the number of designers now including them in their collections. This elegant and clean-cut style is perfect for the modern minimalist. The ring is available in polished and matte brass (shown), steel or copper. £150; alicemadethis.com

3. Colour story

With sapphire centres and a coloured surround, these smart Deakin & Francis cufflinks add a lovely colour pop

Cufflinks specialist Deakin & Francis has a fabulous collection to suit every taste. We’re fans of its Brights collection, which combines cold cure enamel with a small central gemstone.

We love the soft pink with cabochon sapphire. £165; deakinandfrancis.co.uk
