Men’s jewellery has a long and fascinating history, and its popularity continues to grow in recent years. From bold chains to minimal rings, men are increasingly incorporating jewellery into their everyday attire. However, the reasons behind this trend extend beyond just fashion.
What We’re Thinking
The psychology of men’s jewellery is complex and can vary from person to person. Some men may wear jewellery as a way to express their individuality, while others use it to communicate their social status or to convey a particular message. Still, others may simply wear it as a way to enhance their appearance or to feel more confident.
But whatever the reason behind it, there’s a level of self-esteem and self-belief that can come from feeling your best in your outward appearance. Jewellery as a facet of this, provides gravitas. It brings a look together and brings your attitude to your outfit.
One of the most significant drivers of the increased popularity of men’s jewellery is the rise of the “metrosexual man.” Traditional constraints of masculine identity have begun to evolve, and male fashion is seeing a huge renaissance as a consequence. This type of man is highly fashion-conscious and grooming-savvy and often uses jewellery as a way to express his personal style. As society has become more accepting of diverse forms of masculinity, men feel more comfortable wearing jewellery as a means of self-expression and it is an ever-increasingly important part of a man’s outfit, so accessorise in a powerful and coordinated manner.
More Than Just An Accessory
Another reason why men wear traditionally wore jewellery was to signify their social status and personal wealth. Throughout history, jewellery has been used as a way for men to showcase their power, denote class, or just show off.
Today, men may wear designer jewellery or luxury watches as a means of communicating their success, however we think the design of jewellery is more important than the brand when it comes to communicating power. Bold jewellery styles in quality metals are the best choice for subtly bringing this tradition of men’s jewellery into your look. Subconsciously, they communicate strength and success to others, while also portraying yourself as a sophisticated man of style.
Moreover, some men wear jewellery to convey a particular message or symbolise something significant to them. For instance, a man may wear a piece of jewellery with a religious symbol or an item that has personal significance to him. This is a great form of self-expression and we recommend a statement pendant as the perfect way to add some personal meaning to your style.
