It’s long been perpetuated that men only need two pieces of ornament: a watch and a wedding ring. The idea of a “bejeweled man” is often one who wears several gold chains framed by a barely buttoned shirt. However, there’s a way to accessorize without looking like the A-Team’s Mr. T.
Men have historically worn jewelry, though the appeal of such a custom seemed to have waned through the decades. The trend was last prevalent in the post-WWII era when it became popular for American men to wear fine jewelry. In today’s world where there are less fashion restrictions, however, a man can choose to wear as much jewelry as he wants, but taste and conventions dictate that he must know how to make the adornments work for him.
