It's a really good question and the answer is YES!
For a long time, necklaces has always been a way to express oneself and knowing your style help you to wear the right ones for you.
1- A CLASSIC CHAIN
The most classic style of chain necklace has relatively flat loops spaced close together. The chain almost looks like a solid ribbon of metal and is long enough to fall slightly below the collarbone. The key to pulling off a chain is modesty. Keep the style understated and keep the chain underneath your shirt. The small amount that's visible is enough to make your statement for you.
The metal defines the entire chain's look so it's worth spending more to get a higher-quality product here. Avoid cheap alternatives and go for solid stainless steel or precious metals like gold and silver. Our Malm chain is the perfect choice to begin with.
2- PENDANT-STYLE NECKLACE
A pendant is usually a small or large piece linked to a chain or cord. Often worn to make statement or to express something personal and meaningful, this type of necklace are common, popular and versatile.
Pendants can be worn outside casual shirts like T-shirts, however we recommend to wear your pendant underneath when wearing a V-neck or turn-down collar. Here is the perfect example with our elegant Odell necklace. Made from 925 sterling silver. Shop here
3- THE BEADED NECKLACE
Usually made from natural stones, this type of necklaces are worn as symbol of protection, good fortune and more. If you are new to the men's jewelry world, it's not the best option to start with as you have to be totally comfortable to wear pieces that are uncommon. The most common stones are tiger eye and onyx. Their neutral colors makes them easy to style with different outfits. Our best sellers Arian and Alsen are the perfect choice if you are looking for something you can wear everyday.
You have probably heard the phrase, "you get what you pay for". When it comes to jewelry it's entirely true.
Finding affordable high-quality jewelry can be very challenging and most of the brands claiming to sell their products at fair-prices are usually selling low-quality jewelry. For a great piece of 925 sterling silver jewelry, the price can go from 75$ to 500$ based on the weight. Beware of jewelry, under or above that price range.

You probably heard the phrase "less is more", which is not entirely true when it comes to jewelry however, its how comfortable and confident you are in wearing them that will make all the difference. If you are just starting to experiment, we suggest to keep it simple with one or two classic bracelets such as the Justin or a leather bracelet like Raoul. Pair it with an elegant ring like Royce for a sharper look.
2. Not choosing jewelry that suits your skin tones
The way that you determine what metal suits you best is to try on pieces. Use the following tips to determine your skin tone:
Look at your skin in natural light and find a spot wear veins are noticeable (your wrist is usually a good choice)
– Blue or purple veins = cool skin tone
– Green veins = warm skin tone
– Blue, green, AND purple veins = neutral skin tone
Once you have determined whether you have warm or cool undertones, it’s relatively easy to match the proper metal with your skin.
– Cool skin tones look best in light metals = white gold, platinum, or sterling silver
– Warm skin tones work great with yellow metals = yellow gold or rose gold
– Neutral skin tones = white gold or sterling silver
6. Assuming That All Jewelry Is Feminine
Let's be clear – Jewelry is not feminine.
There are certain styles that may be considered less masculine than others but to say that all are for the softer sex is simply not true. Let’s take a historical perspective for a minute.
- The Pope’s ring (Ring of the Fisherman) is a symbol of power and authority. It was the papal method used to seal official documents from the Vatican.
- Egyptian pharaohs from the Eighteenth Dynasty were known for their wesesks which were collars/necklaces and were given to officials and dignitaries – as well as soldiers – as a mark of honor.
- Military personnel wear, and hold in high regard, their dog tags.
- Male bracelets date back to 3000 B.C. and earlier – warriors and shamans wore them to ward off evil
I could go on forever but history has shown us that men wearing jewelry is the picture of masculinity and in some cases “badassery”. At the end of the day it’s all about functionality, preference, and style. Wear it with confidence and that sentiment will translate to everyone else.
