So I thought I would save the final article on men’s accessory basics for something really special and that has been on my mind for awhile now. It’s something that I’ve tampered and dabbled in every now and then but I have always been too cautious and reserved to go full on and dive into it. Men’s jewellery has always seemed to be just too daunting and elusive for me to grab a hold of. But over the Christmas holidays I really started to sit down and have a think about investing in a quality piece of jewellery that hopefully I would have for a long time and maybe even be able to pass on. I knew what I was looking for but I wasn’t sure on how to pull it off, so I set about creating some easy to follow rules that would mean no matter what piece I wear it should always look appropriate.
Now the first thing that I want to outline with this article is that personal preference always takes precedent! What I mean by this is that there are a lot of different types of jewellery out there for guys with all kinds of weird and wonderful pendants and symbols to top it off. So make sure that you have a firm idea of what you want in your mind before you start. Secondly, these rules apply for the majority of jewellery out there. So that includes bracelets, rings, ear rings, necklaces and whether they’re in silver, gold, metal, wood, whatever, it all still applies.
So here they are:
So there you have it guys, four easy rules on how to wear jewellery like a man. Of course these are just rough guidelines and I would recommend feeling it out yourself too. Often making the mistakes is half the fun. Just try to remember that the most common mistake is to take jewellery to extremes, as it wasn’t meant to function that way. Build up a few key pieces that you like and enjoy wearing and soon they will become recognisable trademarks of ‘you’.
Until next week guys,
