Men’s jewelry is a little less common than jewelry for women, but that means it’s an even more important opportunity for the men who want to wear it.
Natural stone jewelry for men is one of the best ways to stand out from the crowd, add a subtle flair to your outfits, or celebrate the important symbols and people in your life.
Whether you’re looking for handmade men’s jewelry for everyday wear, formal events, or something in between, there are excellent options out there.
Want to know more about the most popular designs for men’s jewelry? You’re in the right place. I’ll talk about the different designs, why you should consider natural stone jewelry and more. Let’s dive in!
Men’s Stud Earrings
Pierced ears are becoming more and more of a statement for men and a fashionable one. Once upon a time, only a rare few men had pierced ears or wore earrings, but it’s a lot more common these days.
Stud earrings are some of the most fashionable for men right now, though you can choose other styles if they appeal to you.
Single studs are a little edgier than wearing double studs, but both looks work depending on the context.
Natural stone studs are a little different from typical, which can help you make your mark. The bright colors and different shapes of natural stones vs. faceted gems let you pair your earrings with your outfit a little more closely. You can also take advantage of specific gem symbolism or add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.
Want something that can be extremely subtle or that shows off a little? Men’s necklaces are a great way to get the best of both worlds.
Necklaces can be worn under your shirt for a more subtle look for a little added symbolism. Necklaces worn this way are almost entirely invisible, but they’re still an excellent way to honor the things that are most important to you. Wearing a symbol or an important stone under your shirt, above your heart, means it’s always with you and always meaningful, even when you don’t draw attention to it.
On the other hand, a necklace worn over your shirt is likely to attract a lot more attention, especially if it’s more than just a simple chain and pendant. Natural stone necklaces, for instance, can bring meaning and color into your outfit, but they’ll also look a little fancier and more fashionable.
While a lot of men’s jewelry is about subtle touches of elegance, something a little bolder and more attention-getting is a good thing every once in a while.
Men’s bracelets are a little more common than women’s bracelets, at least among men who wear jewelry, but they’re still an opportunity to stand out and speak your truth in jewelry.
Bracelets can range from natural stone jewelry to simple combinations of leather braids with a clasp to hold them together. Each style has its own message and unique meaning. But, if you’re going for a bracelet instead of a watch, it should mean something to you.
Think about when and where you’re going to wear your bracelets. Leather and subtle stones are perfect for everyday wear, while more colorful stones and intricate designs are better for formal occasions.
If you’re looking for handmade men’s jewelry, it’s a good idea to think about why you want it and where you will wear it. Added symbolism, favorite colors, or a hidden message can all make handmade jewelry make more sense and help you express yourself more fully.
Want something that works anywhere? Try black leather or stone bracelets. They’re formal enough for most occasions but won’t look out of place with a more casual look, either.
Why Choose Natural Stone Men’s Jewelry?
Men’s jewelry can sometimes feel stuck in simple metals, leather, or the occasional piece of diamond jewelry. Those things can be beautiful and handsome, sure, but they’re a little limited when it comes to self-expression. With more and more men feeling comfortable and confident in wearing jewelry now, there’s more freedom to express yourself freely in what you choose to wear.
Natural stones are a great way to add more color and stand out more than typical men’s jewelry. They’re more expressive and directly connected to nature than highly refined and shaped gems, plain metal chains, or studs.
Plus, you should have the freedom to celebrate your favorite colors, birthstone, or whatever else calls to you!
Buying handmade natural stone jewelry gives you many more options, which means more variety and a more comprehensive range of self-expression in your wardrobe. So feel free to get creative with it!
You deserve to love how you look and to find self-expression and confidence in your jewelry.
