Veterans and their families have made unfathomable sacrifices for the American people. September marks two key observances that are very close to the hearts and minds of veterans. Choosing the perfect jewelry gift for a veteran, serving member, or their families can be difficult. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift that is appropriate, heartfelt, and meaningful, then we’ve got the Bunchful recommendation that will make the choice easy.
National Prisoner of War/MIA Recognition day will be held on the 21st of September, with Gold Star Mother’s Day following closely on September 30th. These days aren’t just special observances for those who have been directly impacted by conflict and overseas deployment. They are also important days for the families of any veteran or serving member in the United States military.
Customized Jewelry for Someone Special
Jewelry doesn’t immediately come to mind when considering a military gift, but it’s one of the most appropriate and most loved gifts for a past or present servicemember to receive.
Rings are a key example, and they have long been used to signify an individual’s sacrifice to their country. Rings can be customized with unit insignias and engraving of a name, motto, or other important detail. Rings can be bestowed on those who have served, or to a member of their family as a special remembrance.
Hybrid solid bracelets are also becoming increasingly popular, and they allow more room for custom engraving. ID style bracelets which combine a solid section with a traditional chain link are perfect for engraving with text and symbols.
The Best Materials for a Military Ring or Bracelet
Durability comes before expense when considering military jewelry. Pure gold should be avoided, because while the metal is beautiful, it is very malleable and more suited to formal jewelry. 14 karat and 18 karat gold bracelets are ideal as they are more durable than pure 24 karat gold. Solid 925 sterling silver is extremely attractive, durable, and is an ideal choice for military gifts.
Give with Your Heart to Somebody Special
Say thank you to a retired servicemember or commemorate somebody special with a gift to one of their close family members. Military gifts are personal, they are heartfelt, and with the right choice they are effortlessly beautiful.
