Mens Gold Jewelry - Different Varieties are Available!
Mens Gold Jewelry? When most people think of jewelry, they think of earrings, necklaces and rings; items that are perfect for women. They never think of mans gold jewelry. However, jewelry for men is becoming more popular. More men are looking for rings, and many are opting to wear engagement rings to show that they’re committed to their relationship.
There is a lot of choice when it comes to mens gold jewelry; at lot more than there has been in the past. The 1970s was full of large and heavy chains but these have become less popular over time – however, the price for them continues to rise. Rings are now becoming the thing to get your hands on, whether you choose yellow or white gold.
Most men decide to have an engraving placed on their rings, usually on the inside. This can be the date of their wedding (just so they can remember their anniversary) or a pattern on the outside. The Celtic style bands are extremely popular but many choose to have a clan crest or a symbol that means a lot to them.
Chains are still relatively popular, especially around the neck. There are different styles of chains available when it comes to mens gold jewelry. The main option is the box chain. This is extremely popular for those choosing gold or silver jewelry because it is the most affordable of all. The box chain is just a series of square links that all link together. Chains like this range in thickness; some will have larger links at 5mm whereas others will opt for small 1mm boxes.
Curb chains are also popular when it comes to mens gold jewelry. This is when the flat links interlock when you lay them on a flat surface. The benefit of the curb chains is that they vary so much in the thickness, which is perfect for many people. However, rope chains are also becoming popular, especially for those who have pendants, such as designer dog tags or St. Christophers, which they want to put on them. Rope chains are exactly what they sound like; the chains spiral and look like ropes.
When buying mens gold jewelry, there are a few things to consider and one of those is the number of karats you want in the gold. The cheapest option is gold plated but there are a number of disadvantages to this – the main one being that the plating wears away and means use of the jewelry is limited. 9 karat gold is the cheapest of real gold because of the high amount of other materials used. 24 karat gold is something to consider when you want real gold. This is heavy and expensive.
As well as rings and chains, cufflinks are on a rise. While these are usually considered as accessories, they can also be considered as jewelry, in the same way that broaches are for women. Cufflinks are needed for some styles of shirts, especially for dinner shirts but that doesn’t mean that you have to choose bland designs. There are lots of designs, whether you want to buy one that you can have initials engraved in or your favorite sports team.
Tie clips are another option for mens gold jewelry, especially when they match the cufflinks. These also come with different designs but a simple gold bar looks elegant and professional, which is often the look that many men want to go for while at a dinner party or event. The tie clips, like all other jewelry, come in different karats, depending on how much you want to spend, and they also come in both yellow and white gold.
