How to Wear Mens Jewellery With More Confidence

Men's jewellery is one of the best ways to express confidence as a man, but with the endless amount of options, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Here's the thing no one tells you though: there's no "right" way to wear it. It just comes down to understanding a couple simple guidelines. Once you know these (which you will in the next couple of minutes), styling any piece of jewellery becomes second nature. 

First things first, let’s slow things down—it takes time and money to build your dream jewellery collection, and there's no such thing as a 'complete' one. Your style will evolve over time, so don't rush it. You'll naturally start adding pieces year on year, creating a personal collection with unique memories and stories attached. So until then, it's best to start with the basics.

Here lies the beauty of men's minimalist jewellery: you can start with just 3 versatile pieces, keeping costs low while having a well-rounded collection from day one. You'll find these 3 pieces below, but before you go adding them to your collection, let's touch on a couple tips you’ll want to master first (oh, and tip number 3 is a must).

Tip 1: Never Follow Men’s Jewellery Trends

It's crucial to distinguish between trends and timeless style principles. While trends will always come and go, your personal style should remain timeless and true to who you are. That’s where the classics like simplistic cuff bracelets, minimalist chains and signet rings will always remain in style.

Establish a timeless everyday look, rather than chasing after fleeting trends. Whatever you choose to wear, own it, and wear it with confidence – because confidence is key and it shows.

Tip 2: If in Doubt, Start Simple.

Jewellery stacking is addictive. Once you get the hang of it, the possibilities are endless, and you'll find yourself layering new styles on repeat. While it's pretty hard to go overboard with men’s jewellery, it's still important to be mindful not to clutter your look with excess. If you're new to men's jewellery, it's best to start small and gradually build your collection as you become more comfortable. After all, the saying ‘less is more’ holds true in the world of jewellery.

It really only takes one to three pieces to make a significant impact and completely transform your look. So as promised, here’s the 3 must-have pieces you’ll want to add to your collection first.

Men’s Round Band Ring (5MM)

Available in Silver, Gold and Rose Gold

A minimal gold or silver band ring is probably the most ‘zero room for error’ piece you could possibly go with. Made for easy living, the CRAFTD band ring boasts a new premium brushed interior for superior fit and comfort—a true investment that will last for decades to come. Also available in a 3mm option.

Men's Round Box Chain (2MM)

Available in Silver, Gold and Rose Gold

Clean, sleek, and understated, the box chain is a versatile staple for any wardrobe. Much like the men’s basic black tee, this piece goes with anything, and it effortlessly complements any look. Dress it up, dress it down, or wear it solo – there's never a wrong time to wear this timeless piece. Plus, it’s also available as a matching bracelet, so you can style both together for a cohesive and effortlessly coordinated look.

Men’s Cuff Bracelet (3mm):

Available in Silver, Gold and Rose Gold

Starting with a trio of essentials is key: a chain, bracelet, and ring. While we’ve discussed the box chain bracelet earlier, a simple cuff bracelet is also a timeless and classic choice for everyday styling, especially for more formal occasions. Also available in a 5mm version, pick either one; you can’t go wrong. Both pieces (in fact all pieces from CRAFTD) are waterproof, scratch resistant and will never tarnish.

All of these choices can be worn solo, or combined for an assured and effortless look with zero effort. Pairing your Box Chain, Cuff Bracelet, along with a band ring is a faultless combination that can be worn day in day out. Which bring us to the most important tip of all... 

Tip 3: Add Both Gold and Silver Jewellery to your Collection.

Start by choosing the colour you're most comfortable with, which for many men is silver. But it's really up to you; there's no wrong choice here. The important thing to remember is that it's not a "pick one and stick with it" kind of choice. You can have both, and you absolutely should. Once you’ve become completely comfortable with your 3 everyday essentials, your next move should be to grab those same jewellery pieces in the other metal for the most versatile collection.

Whatever you do, just be mindful to match your metals to the tone of the outfits you're wearing. There are a couple of exceptions to this, though. Some tones like black and white will work just as well with both gold and silver, but generally, the rules are simple. Silver pairs nicely with creams, reds, navies, greens, and greys. While gold looks best with browns, beiges, and earthy tones.
