Guy Friday: Men's Jewelry - Less Is More Unless You Idolize Tony Soprano
February 1, 2009
What: Titanium & Black Cable Dog Tag Chain, $149
Why: Jewelry for men is one of those taboo topics rarely uttered in mixed company. I mean, even the phrase conjures images of Tony Soprano and his entourage. So I’m a strong believer in less is so much more—both in the amount of jewelry worn and the design.
If you’re looking for that special Valentine’s Day gift, chains (men don’t wear “necklaces”) have become popular again and we love the Titanium & Black Cable Dog Tag Chain from Zales. The simple, modern design is sophisticated with a bit of edge. Other types of jewelry we think are acceptable include brushed metal watches, cuff links with personality, and tie bars (although these may be a bit too trendy for some guys).
There are a few items we do not encourage you to pursue. Unless it’s a wedding band, rings are too difficult for men to pull off because most are so gaudy. Dare I even have to say that the chance to wear an earring has long passed for him. At lastly, the bracelet – no matter how thin and understated it may seem – absolutely not.
