Jim Moore, Adam Rapoport, and Glenn O’Brien teach you to break the rules of style when it comes to men wearing jewelry.
The guideline is simple according to award-winning jewelry designer Phil Crangi:
“Anything you wear, you should feel like yourself when you’re wearing it.”
We completely agree. Jewelry should be a natural extension of your personality and fit into your life seamlessly. So men, stop fighting it: a few solid choices of jewelry for your wardrobe enhance your masculinity, not take away from it. We promise.
We don’t forget about men and their jewelry needs and we’re happy to create a custom design piece of jewelry for the man in your life.
Like the informative video below, we believe that yes, less is definitely more (you don’t want to risk looking too gaudy). Learn other tips (like not wearing a watch to a black tie affair – listen for the reason).

Diamond is the best heat transfer in the world and is 4 times better than copper and the video below also demonstrates this. When the ring touches the ice, the heat from the ring transfers to the ice and melts the ice while the cold temperature of the ice is absorbed into the ring – all within a matter of seconds.
Men often cringe when they think of wearing jewelry even though we’re seeing more and more men don fashionable jewelry without compromising any of their manliness (thanks Johnny Depp).
In this video, award winning jeweler Philip Crangi goes on to explain that most men are perfectly comfortable wearing their watch or wedding ring (both are jewelry, right?) and encourages taking that next step.

With Father’s Day on the horizon (June 21st), let’s make up for lost time, shall we?
Men’s jewelry has seen an incredible renaissance over the last decade. More creative risks are being taken in design and the stigma of men wearing jewelry is slowing becoming a thing of the past. With gay marriages on the rise, more couples are venturing into new and uncharted areas in the custom design realm. This recent NY Times article highlights emerging designers and “men’s jewelry that women want to steal”:
There are no jewelry-specific studies but, according to Euromonitor, the global men’s wear market grew 4.5 percent last year, outpacing women’s at 3.7. And the research company predicts men’s wear sales will grow another $40 billion, to $480 billion, by 2019.
Stores are extending their men’s offerings accordingly, and that includes jewelry. Mr Porter, the male counterpart of the Net-a-Porter online store, has offered jewelry for several years, initially selling entry price point pieces from fashion houses including Alexander McQueen and Bottega Veneta. It has since expanded the category, in response to customer demand, to include fine jewelry from independent designers.
