New Delhi – In all cultures, men have worn jewelry for centuries. In fact, in the past, the jewelry of kings was more ornate than that of queens.
Over time and generations, there was a time when jewelry was almost entirely reserved for women and men had a limited choice. Since then, we have come a long way. For starters, we no longer desire or accept stereotypical classifications in the same way as we once did. The focus on gender in jewelry, like in many other aspects of the fashion industry and beyond, is less prominent than it once was.
It’s the 21st century and men now like to express themselves, breaking one stereotype at a time. The truth is, whether you’re a man or a woman, if you feel like you look good, your confidence increases dramatically.
Here is a list of the latest men’s jewelry trends and designs to up your style game, provided by Kohinoor Jewelers Agra & Kohgem, PP Jewelers, RK Jewelers South Ex-2 and Narayan Jewellers:
Tie pins: Whether it’s for a professional event or any other occasion, wearing just a tie becomes boring. Men realize this and now adorn a tie pin. Today, the choice of a tie pin ranges from tie pins set with diamonds in gold or silver.
Lapel Pins: The lapel pin is a great example of detail that will give your outfit an unforgettable elegant look and they are back in fashion. For decades they were only worn at life’s most formal events, but now times are changing and men are looking for trendy options that can go with their daily activities.
Oval Bracelets: Bracelets aren’t just a woman’s best friend anymore. Men of all ages like to experiment with this jewelry in different metals like gold, white gold and leather belts with diamond or colored stone. You can opt for funkier titanium or leather diamond options with casual wear, while gold is perfect for formal occasions.
Cufflinks: Perfect for formal parties and weddings, cufflinks are a must-have piece of jewelery for men. A jewel available in different colors and options adds style to the whole outfit. Many young people choose to wear cufflinks. The personalization of cufflinks is also in vogue. They’re a great choice for important events like weddings, but they’ll hold sentimental value for years to come.
Cufflinks can add a lot of style to a man’s look. This can be paired with a matching tie pin and some great buttons to complete the look. Cufflinks are a minimal part of the look and tend to go unnoticed by many. However, when it comes to design, men can opt for more original options that can add personality to the whole look.
Ring: Rings are traditionally associated with marriage or family. Keeping things basic and timeless is the best advice. A diamond ring will never go out of style, and it can even be worn with a wedding band in the same material (on a different finger, of course) when the time comes.
Brooches: Brooches are stylish! It can be associated with both traditional clothing and Indo-Western silhouettes. Diamond, gold and multicolored stone animal designs are really elegant.
Necklaces: Jewelry should be viewed as a form of self-expression and a method to personalize your appearance. Necklaces are preferred by men these days for casual wear. The chain look is perfect for a night out. Men can also try a mid-weight chain with a modest pendant to add intrigue to the ensemble. They can do it all when it comes to weddings. Many grooms experiment with their appearance by combining a small, loose choker with long hair. The multi-layered haar of colorful emerald and ruby gemstones looks really classy. (IANS)
