Now with summer on our minds, its time to amp up our staple white tee and blue jean combinations with a few novel touches, which come in the form of jewelry. Whilst a joyous staple for women, jewelry is not typically met with the great enthusiasm for men. Reluctance for men to wear jewelry should be overcome with the comfort that it can be done right and the reassurance that it should be embraced for adding that amplifying personal touch to clothing choices. This being said, there are a few cardinal rules for choosing jewelry for men, which will ensure your looks read gentlemanly as opposed to girlish. Below, we recap our simplest tips to choosing masculine jewelry from your neck to your arm to your fingers.
Arms: Layering is Key
For watches and bracelets, an eclectic mix of classic steels alongside vividly coloured woven pieces is worth replicating for the advent of summery days. Our biggest tip? Work bracelets around your watch, layering your arm jewelry much like layering your sartorial choices. Your watch should act as a foundation for other bracelet or cuff choices so either keep things relatively neutral with classic combinations or experiment with brighter tones for a novel juxtaposition to your jewelry. The key is to elect more masculine, versatile pieces which can be worn countlessly and most classically.

Neck: Keep it Simple Stupid
A simple necklace will do the trick for adding that extra bit of dimension to looks but style with caution. Necklaces should be minimalistic and slim so that they allow your clothing to be the focal point of your aesthetic. Remember that whilst a simple silver thin chain may work well for you, leather banded necklaces can work even more effectively for elevating casual looks. Ensure beaded necklaces are also very low-key in their design and style this choice appropriately for your dress code, meaning keep it for casual occasions only.

Fingers: Less is More
The phrase ‘masculine jewelry’ is most stressed when it comes to rings. Rings are definitive, stark and noticeable so keep jewelry for your fingers very low-key and somewhat conservative. Whilst a simple wedding band may be the only accessory you will wish to wear (or not), keep an open mind to other masculine rings. The best way to go about rocking rings if you’re not married? Opt for reconfigured steels in different finishes for a varied aesthetic that will read humbly stylish as opposed to husband-like. Additionally, keep an eye out for quirky or fossil-like styling for an additionally masculine edge to casual looks.
