The world of men's jewellery is a vast, glimmering space. There are accessories of all shapes and styles and sizes, really; silver and gold and white gold and rose gold and brass. Plated or pearly, sterling or studded. Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets that'll have you iced out in any way you want, really; something subtle and elegant, or something shiny and flashy. Oh, where to even begin navigating the men's jewelry world?
Well—right here, actually. Let's start with some brands that are shaping the game when it comes to jewelry for men, whether you like to keep things simple or go bold. There are brands like Gucci and Louis Vuitton, with fashion jewellery that has logos and charms and something cool with every collection.
There are the classic ones, Tiffany, Cartier, and David Yurman, who do accessorizing with infinite elegance. And then there are the newer, indie brands, like Mimi So, Jaxxon, Miansai, and The M Jewelers, who are carving out a definitive space in men's jewelry through eye-catching, high-quality pieces that don't break the bank to enter your staple rotation.
There's no going wrong with any of these brands, really; it all comes down to your taste and preferences. Jewelry makes the man (or at least, his finishing touches), so choose wisely.
