Men: Wear Your Jewelry Right

Mar 12, 2008
Most people think that jewelry is the exclusive territory of women. However, if you look into history, men's jewelry has long been in circulation. Jewelry was used by men as a symbol of wealth, influence, and power. Ornate and extravagant crowns, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and anklets denoted that the wearer was of great power and had a lot of riches. Even their clothes were embellished with precious stones. Their weapons were also made of precious metals. The fascination of men with jewelry can't be denied. Even until now, men are wearing jewelry in order to enhance their looks. But to be successful at it, the key is to wear your jewelry right.

Watches: These have long been a popular piece for men because they provide both practicality and fashion statement. Watches may be cheap or expensive, depending on the materials, mechanism, and brand. Before, men would only have one watch, but now you may find that a distinguished gentleman may have several. You should opt for a silver or white gold watch. Yellow gold is absolutely out. You can wear this to casual and even formal occasions. Simple stainless steel watch will look good with any casual outfit, except for sporty. It will also look good with a formal ensemble, such as a suit.

Rings: In general, the thicker and bigger it is, the more statement a ring will exude. Men's rings are essential. It would be better if you chose one that has a simple design. However, those that are too plain may be mistaken for a wedding band. Don't choose those that have designs that are too ornate because they might be mistaken for a woman's ring. Wear a ring on your ring or middle finger. Pinky rings used to be in style, but currently they aren't. It is best to stick to silver, stainless steel, or white gold.

Necklaces: Do not buy a yellow gold chain since they are a little outdated and are usually associated with negative stereotypes. Don't wear a chain that is too thin since it would look a bit feminine. Wear a thicker chain and don't let it droop 10 centimeters below your neck; make sure to wear a chain of the proper size. Also, keep it tucked inside your shirt. Otherwise, it will just look childish.

Earrings: Earrings have become a very common fashion accessory for men. If you wish to look hip and cool, stick to one earring. This earring should be small and not too ornate in design. You may go for one with a simple stone. A diamond earring will look cool and you can certainly wear it on a night out.

Bracelets: You should wear bracelets that are bold. Like in necklaces, thin chains have a more feminine look. Stay away from yellow gold tones and stick to stainless steel, titanium, silver, or white gold.

Pins: Pins are currently not in fashion. Even statement pins with flags and other symbols are not in style. You should not wear them especially if they bear organization logos.
