Recently, men’s jewelry has come in to the spotlight. Years ago, Tiger Woods began wearing magnetic bracelets to apparently help his golf game. These bracelets were titanium, silver rings for men and were often in the cuff style. Well, I do not know if the bracelet improved his game but it might have helped start the ball rolling on the bracelet jewelry trend. Soon after, a lot more professional golfers started to wear these bracelets and soon after that increasingly more golf enthusiasts. Unsurprisingly, these enthusiasts were soon wearing their “golf” bracelets constantly. Perhaps they believed that the more they wore their bracelet, the higher benefit it would have. In hindsight, I wonder if there was something more to the increased popularity of these seemingly functional-only bracelets.
Years later, professional cyclist Lance Armstrong unveiled his now infamous yellow rubber “Live Strong” bracelet and launched his Lance Armstrong Foundation. These little yellow yet powerful bracelets were soon being worn by everybody from celebrities for your next door neighbor – men included. Lance’s choice of material – rubber – and color (very gender neutral) were probably important aspects to their immediate and widespread popularity. This can be, obviously, in addition to the bracelets were to get a worthy cause and led by one of America’s favored sportsman at that time.
Well, several years have passed considering that the Tiger Woods magnetic bracelet as well as the Live Strong bracelet. However, the jewelry designers started to take notice in the bracelet trend and immediately went along to work creating men’s jewelry, and perhaps entire men’s collections. At last year’s JCK jewelry trade event in Las Vegas, hundreds of designers showed off their mens jewelry and collections. Several themes emerged from the many designers. Popular materials were silver (think John Hardy Jewelry and David Yurman Jewelry and leather, platinum and white gold (think the D.Side collection, accented with tiny diamonds, by Damiani), and in addition rubber (think the Falco for males collection by Di Modolo). The rubber material might have been inspired through the Live Strong bracelet or from the material now being popular strap choices for mens sport watches. Popular items were bracelets, perhaps due to the early pioneers from the Skull ring trend and pendants on sturdy chains (again think about the D.Side collection by Damiani). While women’s jewelry has been the center of attention, men can finally find multiple luxury designers and luxury jewelry intended only for these with the only purpose of enhancing their style with classy, attractive and not-too-blinged-out jewelry.
Using the changing times, even the latest fashions have changed. Formerly, where jewelry was just meant for women, it has acquired a totally different meaning. From the days when cufflinks were the sole accessory men used, today there exists a wide range of jewelry readily available for them. The sudden boom inside the men’s jewelry market has mainly been due the introduction of the trendy yet affordable sterling and silver pieces of adornment. Hence, jewelry, which had been previously worn only by sportspersons and celebrities, is currently in the way of the normal man too.
Anybody can look for a comprehensive assortment of pendants, necklaces, bangles, chains, bracelets, rings, key holders and cufflinks manufactured from silver obtainable in the men’s jewelry market. International branded sterling silver jewelry with popular designs like ‘chunky’ link chains and bracelets for wrists, set with diamonds have provided impetus to men’s fashion. They dveizp up with a collection that perfectly matched the tastes, preferences, look and wallet from the urban, metro sexual male nowadays.
International collections of jewelry for guys boast of clean and contemporary designs that men find very appealing and stylish to sport, whatever the occasion. Bracelet and chains can be found in classic patterns like heavy links with toggle clasps. The majority of the toggle clasps also provide small, round diamonds at the ends in the bar fasteners to boost the complete look in the piece. The same pertains to other pieces of adornment, making them ideal for daily wear or perhaps as being a gift for a loved one.
An exceptional feature about these Skull bracelet is they hardly require any maintenance. There is absolutely no requirement to even make an effort to clean them since many of them are tarnish free. Every singular, piece of sterling jewelry is addressed with rhodium. Another type of renowned jewelry collection for guys that is making waves in the fashion industry is called ‘Black Ice’.
