A Man’s Guide to Jewellery
A classic watch is undoubtedly a man’s favourite fashion accessory. Conservative men might go so far as to say that any other piece of jewellery is a definite no-no. We unquestionably believe that this is because they haven’t experimented with male jewellery! The modern man, these days’ looks stylish while wearing a bracelet, chain or ring. Below we have outlined some key details for the modern day man to pick out the perfect jewellery for himself.
Rules to bear in mind:
1. Keep It Simple
When in doubt, keep it simple. Start with a classic leather or metal strapped watch because guys… time keeping is essential for dates and picking up children!
Once you’re comfortable with your first piece, then you can start to introduce other jewellery pieces like necklaces, bracelets and rings but keep pieces to a minimum.
The trick with the bracelet is, don’t go too thin. Opt for simplicity and classic styles since a man should be able to wear his bracelet every day, whether for a work meeting or a get together.
Every man needs at least one necklace in his fashion accessory collection. Whether it be a religious emblem or just an accessory. Necklaces should be bold and simple, not multi-colored, clumsy or overweight. A simple chain is usually the option and it is best worn under a shirt or tee.
Wearing a simple ring can be both suave and stylish at the same time. Besides a wedding ring, you can also wear it on your little finger, middle finger or even your thumb. Choose something that you think will pair up with your usual attire. Something small and discrete if you have working hands or something a little more flashy for special occasions. The ring can’t be too big because it’ll seem disproportionate with your fingers, and will come across as flashy.
5. Colour Code
Gold and silver tones are the most common for mens jewellery. Sadly guys, we think it looks better to stick to one tone at a time.
Gold is a warmer colour and reads like a yellow accent in terms of the colour wheel. It goes well with browns and other earth tones, as well as with deep hues like royal blue or hunter green.
Silver and silver-tone metals are neutral. They read similarly to greys outside the colour wheel, falling instead on the black-to-white gradient. That means it can be paired with most colour combinations. Match silver jewellery with black or dark grey clothing for a sleek, timeless look, or you can wear it with lighter colours in the summer .
