While women are known to finish off their look with a few pieces of jewellery and a handful of other accessories, for a long time many men did not feel comfortable sporting anything other than a sleek watch and a wedding ring. However, times are changing and more and more people are gaining the confidence to experiment with their looks and allow their personality to shine through. This has naturally led to more men getting a little bit more adventurous with their look and starting to accessorise a bit more, particularly with jewellery. And with fashion icons like Harry Styles, Robert Downey Jr and Rami Malek helping to set style precedence, there is certainly no shortage of timeless and stylish men’s jewellery out there.

In this men’s jewellery guide for beginners, we will help you go from an amateur to a jewellery styling pro that measures up to some of the world’s biggest male style stars. So, whether you are keen to master the art of layering and stacking or metal mixing, read on for a rundown on the simple men’s jewellery pieces that will help you ease into this trend.

Men's Rings

Men's Jewellery Guide For Beginners

Whether it’s a dainty pinky ring or a bold statement piece, men’s rings are an easy and subtle way to blend some jewellery into your look. Whether you wear a wedding band or not, sporting a ring on one or two of your fingers is a great way to show off your stylish side. And despite what history has led you to believe, men have been wearing rings since the days of Ancient Rome and it will forever be seen as an elegant trend. If you are eager to try out this trend but aren’t feeling that brave about it or you simply just have somewhat of a minimalist style, stick to plain or polished pieces such as signet rings. Contrastingly, if you are keen to bring a little bit of luxe to your look, opt for sparkling diamond rings, bold and bright gemstone rings, or the slightly more budget-friendly gemstone rings. For those feeling a little daring, you may even want to try rings adorned with an eye-catching motif or engravement.

Men's Bracelets

Men's Jewellery Guide For Beginners

Another subtle approach to mastering the art of men’s jewellery styling is with bracelets. Carefree, versatile and a great alternative to watches, men’s bracelets are a handy accessory to have in your collection to spruce up your look on all occasions. Whether it’s an elegant tennis bracelet, an edgy leather bracelet, a sleek chain bracelet or something else, a men’s bracelet will pair well with pretty much anything that you wear it with. From casual jeans and a t-shirt to a smart business suit, there is no shortage of ways that you can coordinate a bracelet. Keep it simple and wear it on its own, be ultra stylish in a necklace that pairs seamlessly with your bracelet or get creative with your look and sport multiple bracelets at once in order to create a layered effect. If you opt for a timeless chain bracelet, you can even opt to get a chain in the same link style and colourway to go with it.

Men's Chains 

Men's Jewellery Guide For Beginners

Speaking of chains...one item that never fails to bring an element of sophistication to your look is men’s chains. No matter if it's a classic curb chain, a daring figaro chain, or an eclectic belcher chain, you can also count on chains to add some pizazz. Whether it is a timeless gold chain layered over a plain tee or some knitwear, or a minimalist silver chain peering through a stylish button-down shirt you are sure to get a few heads turning when rocking this look. Add a little extra luxe to your look by sporting multiple chains at once, by pairing your chain with a sleek men’s watch or by investing in a matching chain bracelet made from the same metal hardware. Alternatively, show off your personality and make a statement by adorning a playful pendant with your chain. Regardless of how you style it, a chain will instantly bring some vibrance to your look no matter what you are wearing.

Dog Tag Necklaces

Men's Jewellery Guide For Beginners

While necklaces do bring a little less freedom when it comes to men’s jewellery, that shouldn’t deter from wearing them altogether. One style of men’s necklace that you are sure to get a lot of wear out of is dog tag necklaces. A throwback to the 90s when grunge was heavy on the airwaves, dog tag necklaces are inspired by the pendants worn by soldiers in battle as a means of identification in the event that they are wounded or killed. The silver pendants have since garnered a lot of popularity among fashion lovers and are synonymous with street style wear. Pairing effortlessly with pretty much all of the casual clothing in your wardrobe, dog tag necklaces are a great piece to have in your collection because they work just as good on their own as they do when they are layered with chains and other necklaces in your collection. You can even pair your dog tag with a leather bracelet for a super edgy look.
