5 Common Jewellery Mistakes Most Men Make

More men should wear jewellery. A simple watch, earring or necklace can completely elevate a simple outfit to new levels of style, but us men are a weird bunch. We love jewellery on our ladies, but we can’t see ourselves wearing it. We think we won’t be able to pull it off or we’ll end up looking silly in some way. Some men even feel uncomfortable because they think jewellery is a girl thing. It’s time to change the way we think because every man can wear jewellery and wear it well.

That being said, there are mistakes to be made when it comes to jewellery, and you will want to avoid them and wear your jewellery in style. With that in mind, here are some common jewellery mistakes and how to avoid them:

1. Having No Confidence

The number one mistake you can make when wearing earrings for men or a nice bit of bling around the neck is not being confident in your choices. If you feel uncomfortable about wearing jewellery, you’ll start fiddling with it, trying to hide it or giving up completely. Conquering this will need you to reevaluate your position on jewellery, but taking the time to pick out some really good pieces will also help.

2. Wearing Jewellery In The Wrong Place

If you rock up to the office wearing a couple of diamond studs and a jewel encrusted cross around your neck, when everyone else is wearing nothing more than a tie, and maybe a watch, you’re obviously going to look a bit odd, and you will get awkward glances from your colleagues. So, if you want to wear jewellery well, you really do need to consider the time, place and occasion before you put a piece on.

3. Being Too Bling

Some men, when they discover jewellery, go a bit crazy and pile it on, but wearing six rings, three gold chains and an ear full of studs is never going to improve anyone’s appearance. When it comes to jewellery, less is more. So, invest in a handful of key pieces and wear just one or two of them at any given time if you want to look your best.

4. Not Matching Your Skin Tone

The colour of your skin will affect the way your jewellery looks on you, so it is always worth doing a bit of research into the best metals and stones for your skin type. Of course, trying a lot of different things on for size will give you an even better indicator of a piece’s suitability for you and ensure that your accessories always enhance your looks rather than detract from them.

5. Going For Jewellery That Is Too Chunky

Many men think that, unless their jewellery is as chunky as it is possible to be, it will look feminine. This simply isn’t true. Most men’s jewellery by its very nature is more masculine than women’s jewellery, even if it is fairly delicate, so if you like your jewellery chunky and it fits your body shape well fine, but if it doesn’t, perhaps because you’re quite slender, don’t be afraid to go for slighter pieces.
