Men have been adorning ornaments since time immemorial. Be it the kings and young princes in the royal chambers or the office goers of today, all men have, at some point wanted a trinket that matches their personality and adds a fresh perspective to their overall persona.
So much so that today, we have reached a time where even the presentation rooms in office see men sporting some of the classiest charms. Right from sleek bracelets to stylish cufflinks, all have a special place in a man's closet and are used rather strategically to enhance the look and feel of an outfit.
What's at the Top
Unlike yesteryears, today men have a range of options to choose from when it comes to jewellery. Let's look at some of the most loved wearables that set the ball rolling for men.
During the olden days, a ring signified numerous things, such as wealth of the wearer, the family seal or the wearer's name/profession. But as times changed the men's rings started to play a lot more meaningful role in the society. Be it an engagement ring for men or a ring worn as an extension of one's style, these grew to become highly personalised jewellery pieces that were very dear to the wearer.
It was not an uncommon site in India to see a Maharaja walk across the corridors of his palace wearing chunky earrings made of gold, studded with gemstones. Although, this situation has turned completely and today all that the men prefer to wear on their ear is a single stud or a really light bali that adds a hint of mischief.
Subtle yet stylish, cufflinks are among the most chic accessories available for men. It is believed that Cufflinks first appeared in the 15th century but became common by the end of the 18th century. Today, these are well coordinated with other jewellery items such as watches, belt buckles and tie clips and really help enhance the complete formal look.
Offering great convenience, chains are the charms that can be easily hidden under the shirt if needed. Often also worn with the photograph of a loved one or a deity, chains are considered great conversation starters that share a hint of the wearer's personality.
If a man chooses to wear a pendant, it is something that he holds really dear and does not mind it becoming obvious to the world. Pendants are also among the few accessories for men that offer a vast range of options allowing men to choose to their heart's content.
And with this we have looked into the topmost options that men love to wear when it comes to jewellery.
