When it comes to men and jewellery, we think a little introspection goes a long way. Ask yourself: what’s your personality? And what do you do? Guys like Pharrell, Johnny Depp, Badshah or Li’l Wayne can wear just about any piece of gem and jewel, and pull it off in the wake of what they do. The word for the rest: discretion. We feel keeping it simple is the best way.
In a classic sense, when you say best jewellery for men, a fine timepiece is the most apt bit of bling for a man. The subtle glint of a tie bar, or a sparkle on the cuff links are the coolest jewels up your sleeves.
Off late, we are seeing a lot of designers and brands push in men’s jewellery – globally, from slick neck chains at Louis Vuitton to statement rings at Gucci. In India, many designers like Tarun Tahiliani, Sabyasachi and Rohit Bal often showcase jewellery as part of their menswear shows. At the recent Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights, top Indian menswear designers showcased their capsule menswear collections and we were pleased to see some very interesting jewellery ideas for men.
