1) Learn About the Basics of Men’s Jewelry

The five key jewelry pieces every man should own are a watch, a bracelet, a ring, cufflinks, and tie bars. Start by learning about each of these basics.

2) When in Doubt, Wear Leather

There are a lot of different jewelry styles, but one is perhaps most synonymous with men’s fashion—leather. If you want to look dapper and put together, wearing a leather bracelet or two is one way to do it. Even if you’re not planning on going full-on biker badass, chances are that even something as simple as a leather bracelet adds some serious edge without being too overbearing. The best part? It’s incredibly easy to wear and can be paired with just about anything. From jackets to tees and jeans, it doesn’t get more versatile than that. If you don’t believe us, just take a glance at any high-end clothing catalog for proof! Oh, and speaking of which…

Gold Rings, Not Just For Groomsmen Anymore: Guys have worn rings ever since we first realized we had fingers, but they’ve recently started making a comeback as some seriously stylish accessories. While gold may not be quite like brown bags and black cardigans anymore (think James Bond), taking another shot at them could go very well in your wardrobe! And like metal bracelets, they’re also extremely versatile. You can stack them (which looks super cool) or rock just one; either way, you’ll feel sharp and stylish every time you slip it on. So when in doubt about what kinds of jewelry to choose from when getting dressed up, maybe try putting on an old favorite from years ago – your hands will thank you for trying out new styles!

3) Know Your Pearls

As they say, when it comes to fashion, jewelry is a girl’s best friend. But with men’s jewelry becoming increasingly stylish and versatile, there’s little reason why a man shouldn’t have access to his own little (or big) piece of bling. From bracelets to cufflinks, necklaces to watches—we discuss some great ways on how you can master your own personal style. It all starts with having your look down pat, which is easier said than done if you don’t know where to start.

4) Always Wear a Bracelet

The bracelet is every man’s go-to jewelry piece, and for good reason. It’s tough enough for a working man but stylish enough for any occasion. Whether you opt for a cuff or a leather band, it will seamlessly blend into whatever look you have going on—that is if it’s styled correctly.

5) Gold Rings are Your Friend

Wearing a couple of gold rings is a great way to add an edge to your outfit without going overboard. They can spice up anything from khakis and a collared shirt for business meetings to ripped jeans and a T-shirt when hanging out with friends. And, most importantly, they won’t break the bank. Be sure to invest in well-made pieces though; it doesn’t take much force for one of these ring designs to snap off at its joint.
