The Most Popular Necklaces for Men

Growing up in a house filled with men, having three brothers and a dad who loves jewelry as much as I do I’ve become very adept at differentiating between different necklace styles. Before I was only exposed to women’s necklace like the ones I see my mom wear or the necklaces she gives me as presents during my birthdays. But I had no idea that men could also wear necklaces.

The very first time I knew that there were jewelry necklaces tailored for men was when I saw my dad bought one as a reward to himself when he got his promotion. My dad bought a shimmering gold necklace and it was the very first masculine necklace I saw in my entire life. Over time, I was slowly being exposed to men’s jewelry. When my brothers moved out, found new jobs and had money on their own, they also took after my parents’ apparent obsession for jewelry. Each one of them had their own unique styles.

The Basics In Wearing Jewelry

Don’t be alarmed and don’t be frightened because the rules for men are only very few, yet but few these laws of fashion are inviolable. In general, men’s jewelry pieces consist mostly of metal; the most popular among these metals are silver and gold. But as a rule, it is a big no-no that you mix and match these metals. Think of it as stripes and plaids. No one wears plaid shorts with a striped shirt. In the same manner, avoid pairing your silver rings with a gold watch and vice versa.

More importantly, the first thing that you have to consider is that your jewelry has to match your outfit. Above all else, this is the most important thing you need to keep in mind.
