Choosing the Perfect Gift for the Angler in Your Life

Anglers are a special breed of people. They enjoy the water and the marine life in the water. When choosing a jewelry gift for the angler in your life, it is important to consider more than just that person’s favorite color. Your gift must be both practical and beautiful for the best results.

When looking at jewelry for an angler, consider the fact that the angler is likely to wear it on the boat. This means that the angler does not need something that is super heavy or overly flashy. Also, if you are purchasing a bracelet or ring, it is essential that you select one that fits properly to prevent it from flying off.

The next thing to think about is the recipient’s favorite marine creature. Pendants, necklaces, bracelets and rings are available that feature a variety of fish and marine animals. Turtles, sharks, dolphins and a variety of fish are just some of the offerings.

If you decide to go with a necklace, consider the different chains. You want to choose one that is durable and beautiful. If your wrangler is in and out of the water a lot, look at colored cord and leather chains. There are sterling silver and stainless steel options as well.

Selecting jewelry for anyone is hard, but buying jewelry for an angler comes with extra considerations. Luckily, options abound, and this makes finding angler jewelry an easier task. If you keep the recipient’s personal style and the practicality of the piece in mind, you are sure to select the perfect gift each time.

Creative Gifts for the Angler in Your Life

Anglers typically make gift giving easy for everyone involved. Fishing equipment is a great gift, but it is something expected and ordinary. Instead, consider purchasing unique, creative gifts for the angler in your life that stand out amongst the hoard of reels, fishing lures and hooks and celebrate the angler lifestyle.

Jewelry is often overlooked when someone considers gifts for anglers, but it is a creative option that stands out well. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets come in many different varieties of materials and styles, so it is easy to pick out a piece to fit the receiver’s fashion sense. Use the interests of your angler to decide what to purchase, such as favorite type of fishing or fish. For example, if he prefers deep sea fishing, avoid buying pieces that focus around fresh water fish and fishing.

If you hear of a special catch your angler is particularly proud or fond of, consider purchasing a gift that commemorates the catch. Jewelry is one possibility, but a sturdy picture frame or shadow box that highlights the catch is a wonderful gift option. When building a shadow box, include favorite types of equipment and a high quality picture or two, then cover the face with glass to protect the contents.

These are far from the common gifts anglers are used to getting, but if you do a bit of research to find out what your favorite angler enjoys, they are great options for creative gifts. Jewelry and commemorative gifts are a step above traditional gifts and are sure to peak your angler’s interest.

Stepping into the Eco-Lifestyle

There used to be a time, not so long ago as could be easily dismissed, that many people considered an eco-friendly lifestyle to be weird; out there…a little bit strange. The priorities placed by governments and societies in general on caring for the planet were low on the totem pole. Fortunately, humanity is an ever-evolving species, and the past few decades have seen the popularity of environmental conservation rise dramatically. People of heart organized their efforts and forced politicians to create laws to protect our natural resources, and people of means formed organizations designed to clean up the messes made and promote a healthy coexistence between ourselves and the other species of life on this planet.
Powered by the People

From every corner of the world, and from all walks of life, people have found themselves embracing an eco-friendly lifestyle. The results have been nothing short of phenomenal, with more people than ever before recycling and performing other conservation efforts regularly, and more people placing higher value on environmental issues when it comes to their voice in the Government. Maybe we finally saw the seriousness of the messes we were making. Maybe we just figured out that, despite what Star Trek told us, this planet was likely to be the only planet we’d ever occupy. Whichever version is the truth, we finally began listening to the world around us.
Choosing Your Cause

Aside from the basic conservation and recycling, getting involved in organizations who are specifically targeting areas of the environment are important to you is a great way to step into the lifestyle. Whether it is a Marine Conservation organization like The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation or another organization providing a local environmental focus, organizations that care for our planet are always looking for like-minded individuals to help with the cause, whether it be time and effort or financial support. Choose one that means something personal to you, and do your part!
Together, We Stand

One of the great aspects of being an advocate for environmental conservation is that you get to meet other people with whom you share beliefs and convictions. You can’t always tell on the surface – us silly humans all look alike – so sometimes it’s good to advertise a little. From wearing eco-themed apparel or marine wildlife jewelry, these are worn as a lifestyle statement and provides a symbol of your concern for the planet.

Angelfish Necklace

Angelfish are uniquely beautiful. There are two main types of angelfish: freshwater and marine. Both the freshwater angelfish and the marine angelfish not good for household fish tanks, because they are very vulnerable to changes in the water such as salt levels and pH levels, and will likely die if they are exposed to extreme change.

Despite the fact that their names are the same, freshwater angelfish and marine angelfish are not thought to be closely related. The freshwater angelfish is a tropical species of cichlid and marine angelfish are believed to be most closely related to the butterfly fish.

The fresh water angelfish is triangular in shape, making it easier to hide in aquatic plants in the water. Freshwater angelfish feed on smaller fish and are preyed upon by larger species of fish, birds and marine mammals.
Mostly found in shallow reefs, marine angelfish are reported to be almost fearless and are generally curious. Some species of marine angelfish are solitary by nature where other species of angelfish form territorial mating pairs or even groups. The groups of marine angelfish usually have one male and a number of females.

Marine angelfish have bright colors and patterns on their bodies and vary in color and size, depending on what species of angelfish it is, and patterns and colors change as they get older, possibly indicating its role on the chain of command in the angelfish kingdom. Both species are incredibly stunning to look at.

Celebrate the beauty of the angelfish with an original Guy Harvey sterling silver necklace, available in pure silver and enamel. Each medallion is hand crafted to show the fantastic detail and beauty of the angelfish. The variety of styles of chains available to you guarantees that you will find the necklace that best suits your individual taste.
