The do’s and don’ts of men’s jewellery

When selecting men’s jewellery, you should know how to avoid looking like a mobster or a mumble rapper. Like we said, balance is key. Get it right and you’ll take your look to the next level. Without further ado, let’s look at the do’s and don’ts of men’s jewellery.


Besides men’s rings, cufflinks are probably the second most worn jewellery item. They serve a purpose but double as jewellery pieces that you can wear to upscale your ensemble. Most cufflinks come in metals that are usually less expensive although precious metals such as sterling silver or gold are also used to manufacture men’s cufflinks.

Opt for sterling silver or plated gold cufflinks because they would last you a lifetime and you can pass them down to your children or grandchildren one day. When you are shopping for a pair of cufflinks, keep it simple and avoid tacky comedy cufflinks unless you can really pull it off. Circular or square – metal or wood the choice is up to your personal preference.


The question of the hour is should you wear a ring or not? If it’s not a wedding ring, men have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with rings. The family crest ring has made a comeback in recent years and is considered a modern must-have.

If you are proud of your family roots and would like something completely unique, this might be a ring for you. The beauty behind family crest rings is that you can pass it down for generations to come and it becomes part of your family’s legacy.

Men rarely stop to think about what their wedding ring should look like. But don’t worry, this guide is here to help. We recommend that you start by finding the right size for your finger. Your ring should fit firmly but not so tight that it hurts your skin.

A good trick is to turn it all around your finger and if you can remove it with light resistance, it’s a match. Struggling to pull it off? Get it resized or opt for a bigger size. The best is to go to a professional to get it measured accurately. Is your wedding day around the corner?
