Try thumbing through the pages of a style look book or recalling an aesthetic that caught your eye. What really pulls you in? Do you want something that transitions smoothly from day to night? An accent piece for special occasions? Maybe something nostalgic, but not puka-shell-necklace, grommet-studded-belt nostalgic?
Within the multiverse that is modern fashion, there’s something loud, something subtle, something brash, something shy – something for men of every stripe. Our team has surveyed the market for the most en-vogue, masculine accessories available and pieced together this simple guide for all of you Clark Gables and Rico Suaves. So, shake off that wristwatch, crack open a cold one, and come with me; let’s sample some of today’s most fashionable jewelry for men.

Fashionable Jewelry for the Manly Man Buying Guide
Features to Look for in Fashionable Jewelry for Men
General Tips – The price point is important. Is it for a momentous occasion? Or is this a piece that you intend to wear throughout the week? Something durable but not too pricey. Consider your buying outlets, and don’t be afraid to ask for expert jeweler insight.
While the trend used to be towards thicker leather bands and chunky metal pieces, the current sway dictates a minimal and more refined aesthetic. Consider pieces that look as good on their own as they do when layered.
Keep these meta-level suggestions in mind when perusing all categories of men’s fine jewelry, and you’ll be golden.
Bracelets – ‘Adjustability’ is the word when it comes to purchasing bracelets online. Look for cuffs that are malleable, and have either slipknot-style pulls or notch-style bands. Pay special attention to the length of the bracelet at full extension. Avoid solid, unadjustable bangles that require you to slide the entire piece over your hand.
Balance is important, too. If your left hand already dons a watch and wedding band, look for a similarly-styled (but not too matching) bracelet to tie around your opposing wrist.
Necklaces – Personal and minimal is the name of the necklace game. Men’s necklaces should look masculine but understated when on display and should slip under that crewneck with ease at the gym. Mid-length, slender chain necklaces (think 22 to 24 inches) are classic statement pieces you can wear 24/7. The simple chain motif also lends itself well to layering with one or two similar necklaces or accentuating pendant-style necklaces in more relaxed settings.
Rings – It’s easy to overdo it when it comes to men’s rings. A signet ring stands strongest on its own; less is more. Anything too thick or gaudy will serve only to distract and is prone to getting in the way of daily activities. Modern men’s fashion calls for lightweight, minimal bands or lowkey stackable circles. Go for something light enough to wear and forget. A good rule of thumb? Stick to rings measuring at or under 4 millimeters thick.
Brooches and Lapel Pins – Brooches and lapel pins have the potential to elevate your suit game completely. Whether it’s an NYE shindig, classic Derby party, or just a Connecticut-casual kind of night, there’s a lapel pin for every wile. Let’s check out the options, yeah?
- Boutonniere – This old school floral-style pin is perhaps the most formal. Freshly picked, enamel, or silken, keep the boutonniere relatively lowkey by avoiding a prom-style bouquet – one flower’s all your need to make a statement.
- Long-Stem – Long stem lapel pins offer a lot of room for creativity. Typically forged from finer metals (gold, platinum, sterling), long-stem pins are chameleons – capable of being quaint or ostentatious depending on what they feature. Common styles incorporate enameling, fabric sculptures, feathers, and cut stones.
- Badges and Minis – Think An Officer and a Gentleman. Badges and miniature pins are ultimate classics, informed by a pristine military aesthetic. Today’s styles range from the understated and serious to the loud and proud. Most badge-style pins comprise metal and enamelwork. If you’re looking to display a flag, crest, or classic geometric shape, this is the ticket.
Earrings – Striking the delicate balance between fashionable and juvenile is perhaps most challenging when it comes to donning men’s earrings. Might I recommend 1) keeping them relatively small in proportion to your face and, 2) using your outfit as inspiration when it comes to selecting the earrings for you. Try to match your attire’s theme – playful and colorful earrings pair best with similarly playful duds. Stick to smaller, subtle, metallic or stone designs for professional and formal occasions.
And don’t stray from high-quality, hypoallergenic metals like gold, stainless steel, and sterling silver. The earlobe is sensitive to subpar metals (avoid nickels and nickel-plated jewelry), and if you’re not careful, that sharp look you were going for could turn into allergic hive city. Not sexy.
Cufflinks – A timeless weapon in any fashionable man’s wardrobe, the cufflink is elegant and occasional. Because of the role cufflinks play in memorable, once-in-a-lifetime events, they often become family heirlooms. Quality is, therefore, of the utmost importance. You want something that ages well and pairs with a versatile lineup of suits.
If cufflinks are an investment item for you, consider sticking to high-quality metals (gold, stainless steel, sterling silver) and understated colors (black, blue, grey, white).
If you’re a first-time cufflink buyer, be sure that the shirt you pair them with is cufflink-compatible. Remember that links and studs are to be worn in place of buttons, not in addition to them. Your best bet when shopping for a compatible shirt? Look for something with French cuffs.
