Male Jewellery for Beginners

Many men aren’t comfortable with the idea of wearing jewellery & a lot of them like the idea but don’t know where to start. This is a guide for beginners who are looking into it.

While women are known to finish their looks with more than a few jewellery pieces, men often consider jewellery a debatable concept. Being so female dominated, not all men feel comfortable sporting more than a watch or their wedding band. However, in this day and age people are exploring fashion like never before.

Men’s jewellery has been through a rollercoaster of highs and lows over the course of fashion history, with almost a 50/50 split between men who are all for it and men who aren’t so sure. But as fashion evolves, more and more high fashion brands are creating diverse jewellery pieces for men.

You don’t have to be a millionaire or a rock star to adorn yourself with a bit of bling. Today men too are donning the art of stacking & layering as well as mixing metals. However, for those new to male jewellery, here are some simple pieces to help you ease into this men’s fashion trend.

Men’s Rings

Men’s rings are a great way to easily blend some jewellery into your look. Whether you wear a wedding band or not, sporting a ring or two on your hands is now a common measure of style. If you are trying ring bling for the first time, stick to more simple styles that are plain or polished. For those feeling a little daring, you may even want to try rings with embedded cubic zirconias for touch of luxury.

Men’s Leather Bracelets

Leather bracelets have long been a go-to for men looking to wear some jewellery. Bearing a masculine visage, men’s leather bracelets are perfect for men who are unsure about jewellery. The leather bracelet works with many looks and styles, and are great to wear on their own, with a watch or stacking with each other.

Men’s Chains

Necklaces do come with a little less freedom when it comes to men’s jewellery. They key is to keep it as low key as possible. While you can stack and layer your rings and wrist-wear, a simple gold or silver chain will suffice if you want to don the necklace. A simple chain peering through your buttoned shirt or layered over a plain tee, is an easy masculine and stylish look that many men love.

If you’re really feeling the bling, then try pairing your chain necklace with a simple gold or silver bracelet. This is a great way to dress up an outfit for a special occasion. These simple chained bracelets also look great stacked with a watch of the same metal hardware.
