We know the average man has not flaunted much in the way of jewelry, usually just a watch, class ring and/or a wedding band if married. Earrings were once a viewed as a sign of rebellion and gold or platinum chains were reserved for the music scene or “gangster” look. Those days are gone and currently, more men have an appreciation of jewelry including pendants, rings, and bracelets. So here are some jewelry tips just for men or the man in your life:
Rings – No longer just for the married, rings for men have grown in popularity. There are no rules for which hand or finger you adorn, except for wedding bands. Simplicity is important in wearing a ring fashionably. Just recently a man bought one of our gemstone rings in silver. It was a tiger’s eye and matched a beautiful bracelet he was wearing. For the middle finger, select a statement piece, whether it is thick band or one with a cool stone set into it. Some attractive masculine stone include Black Onyx, Turquoise, or Amber.
Bracelets – Bracelets have increasingly become prevalent in men’s fashion accessories. Our leather and silver magnetic clasp bracelets are super popular with our male customers. Today’s bracelets are fabricated from a variety of materials including steel, titanium, silver, rope, and leather. A handsome leather band is outdoorsy and manly. Layering bracelets by wearing several made from similar materials in a mixture of weight and widths is also fashionable.
Necklaces – A leather necklace with a stone pendant has an earthy look and depending on the color stone can be very flattering for a man. Black or brown leather with a bold chunky silver pendant is modern and artistic. Adding a Turquoise stone is attractive and masculine too.
Watches – The watch has gone beyond being simply a practical device that keeps time. Watches have become a centerpiece for men’s accessories, less of a timekeeper and more of a piece of jewelry. Whichever style desired, designer or sporty, the face of the watch becomes the fashion statement. Larger, bolder watch faces are more stylish now, smaller ones are out-of-date. Investing in a great watch is important; as you can be sure everyone will be checking out what you’re are sporting.
