Mens’ Jewellery: Snap Style Guide on Wearing Jewellery
Copyright 2006 Tatstar According to a recent survey in the US, around forty percent of women thought men wearing jewellery other than a watch and a wedding band, exuded confidence. So guys, if you want to impress the ladies or you just want to impress, here’s a brief guide to what looks hip and cool in mens’ jewellery. Mens’ earrings: You’ve seen photos of David Beckham wearing a pair of diamond earrings. England’s full-back footballer, Ashley Cole wears a diamond stud too. If you have quite a chiselled jaw line, a pair of studs or a single stud will set off the sparkle in your eyes. Mens’ bracelets: Wearing a bracelet is probably the nearest you will get to revealing your feminine side.
Let’s face it, when you’re used to wearing a watch, the ultimate masculine item of jewellery, you’re bold, know what you want in life and if you’re wearing a good functional watch, you have no excuse of not turning up to work or a hot date on time. Balance that with a chunky bracelet on your naked wrist could send confusing signals. The best option perhaps is wear a simple, silver bracelet. Johnny Depp wears a leather bracelet. Some guys wear power bracelets; like the string of dark grey beads for balance and sense of security.
Girls are more likely to take note that you think beyond the realms of the practicalities in life and have the scope to enter the spiritual zone. Mens’ necklaces: Seen Oceans Twelve, where Brad Pitt is wearing an understated silver necklace and cool cufflinks? Well a lot of men had gone in search of “Brad Pitt” pieces after seeing the film. If you have a short, wide neck it’s best to steer clear of necklaces that grasp the neckline. Better worn, is a long necklace which suits most men with different facial structures and necklines. Necklaces don’t just stop at the movies. Note that a few male tennis players competing at Wimbledon this year are sporting a little of their feminine side whilst scoring aces and running around in volleys. Mens’ rings: Whether you want to bling it or keep it understated, wearing a ring for costume jewellery shows that you’re an urban metro sexual of the younger kind. Younger guys may prefer to wear rings on most of their fingers. The actor Ving Rhames from Pulp Fiction wears rings both on and off screen. More mature guys are more likely to be minimal and wear classically designed titanium pieces.
And if you can splash out, a small diamond will set you apart from the crowd.
