Although it may seem less common for men to wear jewelry, it’s something men have been doing for thousands of years. We just might be seeing more of it in the spotlight in 2022. And with many new styles coming out, it’s no surprise that men’s jewelry will be the highlight of men’s accessories this year. If you are interested in purchasing new pieces for yourself or have a man in your life who loves a good piece of jewelry, consider investing in one of these 2022 men’s jewelry trends.
With the endless variety of men’s ring styles … even men who don’t consider themselves ring guys will likely find a style they like. Men’s rings have been around for countless years, but prepare to see a few of these styles steal the spotlight this year. One of the most popular choices is a simple sterling silver ring with a double band. More specifically, one with a design inspired by medieval symbolism. A silver sterling band is timeless, subtly elegant, and goes well with casual and formal attire. More of a gold guy? Try a simple, thin gold band: no extra detail, no-frills, just simplistic elegance. If you do want some detail, opt for a wider band with a small diamond. Who said diamonds are just for women? And if you really do want to make a fashion statement with your ring choice, try a multi-layered gold band ring. This is a great piece to add to a flashy suit when you really want to show off just how trendy you can be.
Prepare to see a lot of colors and bold fashion choices when it comes to men’s necklaces this year. We will start off with something simple and classic with a modern twist: a timeless gold chain with larger-than-average chain links. This is a style that will go well with many articles of clothing, ranging from dress shirts to soft, cozy sweaters. Love pendant necklaces? Try a Himalayan gemstone crystal pendant, which would make a beautiful accent for a men’s sweater or a men’s crewneck top.
Another gemstone that is becoming increasingly popular in men’s jewelry is the pearl. So if you want to try something new, invest in a pearl necklace. It could be any style: one simple pearl on a silver or gold chain or a whole string of pearls. Another wonderful thing about pearls is that they can be mixed and matched with other gemstones and they come in other colors. What could possibly be cooler than a black pearl necklace?
A classic wristwatch is a fashion staple every man should own. But in addition to a high-end wristwatch, bracelets may also be a worthwhile investment for the man who loves to accessorize. When you want to maintain a timeless, traditionally masculine look, opt for a simple brown or black leather bracelet or a braided leather cord bracelet. If you want a more earthy piece, try a tiger’s eye bracelet. Are you a big fan of gold? Try a gold chain bracelet to go with your gold chain necklace. Bangle bracelets in sterling silver are also becoming a trendy choice in men’s fashion. They are usually slim and subtle, but a great piece that serves to enhance an outfit.
Oh, the endless options when it comes to men’s earrings. There are plenty of earring styles for men, but one of the trendiest pieces to incorporate in 2021 is a set of pearl stud earrings. However, pearl string earrings are also quite a fashionable choice as well as pearl earrings matched with other gemstones, like diamonds. There are plenty of stud earrings that will be making a big splash in 2022, but we can’t forget to mention men’s hoop earrings too. A set of mini gold hoops with a diamond or pearl cartilage piercing is a great choice for a dressy occasion.
No one has to tell a man how to put a piece of jewelry on. It’s simple and self-explanatory. The tricky part is knowing how to pair jewelry pieces with the right outfits. Consider various factors like what occasion you are wearing the jewelry for, the color scheme of your entire outfit, and how flattering the jewelry will look with the clothing. If you are planning to wear several pieces of jewelry at once, pick one piece to be the focal point. Maybe it’s the necklace, maybe it’s the ring … it doesn’t matter, but only one piece should be the focal point. Trying to have too many pieces of jewelry be the focal point will just make the outfit look disorganized and confusing. For example, a black pearl necklace can be the focal point when paired with a men’s dress shirt and a men’s blazer and a slim silver band ring can be the accenting piece.
