Jewelry is not just for women, from the old days, men already used jewelry to show their wealth and power. Even though we live in a time where smartphones have rendered watches obsolete, men are still choosing to adorn their wrists with a timepiece. Jewellery nowadays is not just something to show the status, wealth but also to express yourself. Here are the 6 pieces you should consider adding to your collection.
A perfect necklace for men should be with a small pendant and a midweight chain to add interest to your outfits and create a talking point when on show.A lightweight or big pendant will be too feminine The majority of men continue to shy away from necklaces as they can, admittedly, be a bit of a minefield. Too dainty and it comes across feminine, too chunky and you’re suddenly Rick Ross.
If in the old time, rings are mainly associated with marriage or family, rings have long been a staple in a man’s jewellery arsenal.
Rings nowadays are not just for toffs and gangsters, the signet ring is back in fashion and makes an excellent option for those that want to wear something other than a plain band. You can customize it with your family name, your initials or anything which is significant to you.
However, the best one is simple and classic, you can go with a sterling silver ring which will never go out of style and can even be worn as or with a wedding band.
If you are a fashionista or at least you love wearing a watch on your wrist, so why not consider adding a bracelet into the mix? A watch can mix well with a minimal cuff or ID design and it will create a perfect look with the combination of pared-back jeans and T-shirt.
Cufflinks are mostly used for formal occasions such as meetings or business trips. However, they can also add a bit of interest to your bog-standard suit and tie combinations during the working week.
Depending on your personal style, you can use options such as animals or skulls can add personality to your look. But the best styles are those that have special meaning to the wearer; for instance, you may choose plane cufflinks because you’re currently learning to fly, or vintage racing cars because you’re an enthusiast.
It’s also popular to keep cufflinks simple with a subtle, monogrammed pair – whether you have your own initials or those of a loved one? It’s an ideal gift for wedding or anniversary gifts as well.
