A Guide to Jewellery for Men

Posted in Jewelry on December 9, 2021.

You might think there aren’t many options for men when it comes to jewellery, but you’d be wrong!

Men may not always accessorize in the flashiest of ways, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any horizons to explore. Black and silver jewellery is the most popular style of jewellery for men worldwide, but the designs vary. Since the Celts first settled in the region way back in 500 BC, their cultural influence has not left Irish society. So, in Ireland, you’ll find men indulging in Celtic jewellery and other traditional Irish jewellery designs.

Despite the many styles of men’s jewellery available in the market, you might be struggling to properly accessorize. So, here’s a guide!

1. Start Small and Simple

When it comes to men’s jewellery, simple is better. If you’re a beginner at manly accessorizing, you should start by incorporating small and simple items of jewellery into your daily attire. You can opt for minimalist pure silver bracelets, thin silver necklace chains, and plain silver or black rings. Once you start to get comfortable with small jewellery, then you can go bigger.

2. Explore Different Styles

There are so many styles of jewellery you can explore! Browse through online jewellery shops and try to find something that fits your style. It’s also important to step out of your comfort zone and try out styles you don’t particularly like (you might grow to like them!).

Explore styles like Claddagh rings for men, Ogham pendants for men, traditional Celtic rings,cufflinks, tie bars, etc. offered by Irish Jewel. Trust us, you’ll find something you like!

3. Don’t Be Afraid of Colour

Often, men don’t wear jewellery that’s too colourful. That’s understandable, but you can still wear jewellery that has some colour to it. Men in ancient civilizations e.g. the ancient Egyptians used to wear jewellery containing gemstones. Gemstones are naturally vibrant which allows men to have a pop of colour in their accessories while still remaining simplistic.

4. Layer up When You Can

If you’re keeping it simple with minimalist bracelets, then you can wear multiple at the same time. You can layer up chains, too, as long as none of them is too chunky or over-the-top. Many men like to wear multiple rings in the same hand, so you can try that as well. You can pair a classicIrish bracelet with uniquely designed Claddagh rings.

The key is to experiment and find what works for you the best!
