There is nothing new about men wearing jewelry. In fact, if you see the pictures of ancient Egyptian Pharaohs and other royalties, they seem to wear more jewelry than the women! Even today, men, irrespective of their society culture or class, wear some kind of jewelry to compliment their personalities.
To help you out in selecting a piece of jewelry for the men in your life, here are some top trends you should know about:
- Milan Men’s Fashion Week 2011 presented the return of chunky pendants and chains in men’s fashion. Some designers that presented this trend include Armani and Vivienne Westwood. This is a bit unusual trend for most, but if the person you are gifting to can carry it well and loves to sport the latest runway fashion, then this can be a good choice.
- Men are also sporting “statement pieces” from leading jewelry brands and the great thing is, they are buying that for themselves. So if your budget is high, you can go for such a piece of jewelry from brands like Bvlgari. Rings are the frequent choice, but since 2008, necklaces and bracelets have also found quite a few takers.
- The material of the jewelry is also important. The trend in 2011 is back on masculinity and the materials that are perfect representations of that. Stainless steel is one such material which is durable, long lasting and sophisticated. Jewelry made of stainless steel can be worn every day and since the color, silver-grey, goes with everything, men can wear such jewelry in their office as well as on date. Another great thing about this trend in men’s jewelry is that, it is available for all kinds of budgets. So if your budget is high there are brands like Bvlgari, Tiffany & Co, and D&G Jewels while for those with modest budget, there is Macy or Bloomingdale and even JC Penny. Still not in your budget? Then try many online sellers who have great collection of men’s jewelry items like cuff links and bracelets in stainless steel but are priced in the most affordable range. It is true that men don’t show off with jewelry as much as ancient Pharaohs did. But sporting the latest piece of jewelry is something most men will still do to impress the ladies.
