Discover the hilarious truth behind why men love to buy women jewellery gifts – and why they often get it so wrong. From gaudy necklaces to tacky earrings, we explore the theories behind this curious trend, including conspiracy theories and revenge plots. With personal perspectives, humour, and practical style tips, this article will make you think twice about your next jewellery purchase (or gift).
The Perils of “Bad” Jewellery Gifts: A Personal Perspective
As a woman, I have received my fair share of questionable jewellery gifts from men. From gaudy necklaces that look like they belong on a Christmas tree to earrings that weigh more than my head, I’ve seen it all. But why do men insist on buying us jewellery when they clearly have no idea what they’re doing?
Theories Behind the Trend: Failsafe Gifts, Fashion Statements, or Something Else?
After conducting some extensive research (by which I mean asking a few of my male friends), I’ve come up with a few theories. Perhaps men see jewellery as a failsafe gift – something that’s universally appreciated and will make us feel special. Or maybe they’re just trying to impress us with their taste and style (which, let’s be honest, doesn’t always work out in their favour).
But as a woman who has received her fair share of “bad” jewellery gifts, I have to wonder if there’s something else going on. Maybe men are secretly trying to sabotage us with jewellery that’s so tacky we’ll never want to leave the house wearing it. After all, if we’re wearing a necklace made entirely of plastic pearls, we’re probably not going to be turning any heads (except maybe in horror).

Or maybe it’s just a subtle form of revenge. We all know that men can be intimidated by strong, independent women, so perhaps they’re trying to bring us down a notch with jewellery that’s so cringe-worthy we’ll be begging them for fashion advice. “Please, tell me, should I wear this necklace made of plastic spiders or the one that looks like it was stolen from a toddler’s dress-up box?”

But in all seriousness, I think men just genuinely want to make us happy with their gifts, and sometimes they miss the mark. And let’s be real; it’s not just men who have questionable taste in jewellery – I’ve definitely bought a few pieces that I thought were stylish at the time, only to cringe when I see them in photos years later.
