The 18 Best Men’s Jewelry Items To Wear in 2022


Although men’s jewelry isn’t a new concept by any means, the way we wear it today represents a vast difference from the past. We’d argue that necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings are just as vital when completing a look. They’re pretty much a requisite for formal attire, and they can also elevate your basic t-shirt, sweater, or casual staples.

Looking beyond watches, Men’s jewelry is often overlooked. If styled right, however, it becomes a major factor in elevating even the simplest of looks. And with times changing, more and more fashion houses and boutique brands are offering tasteful glitz that can be worn for almost any occasion.

From some of your favorite musicians (Drake and Harry Styles among them) to this season’s most sought-after collections, we’ve seen men effortlessly adorn statement-worthy jewelry. Here are some of our favorites.

The best casual watches for men (to upgrade your everyday style)
Whatever hobby you love, these timepieces can go with you to the top of the mountain or the bottom of the ocean
Nixon Spectra gold watches for men in style.

A casual watch is the kind of timepiece that pairs excellently with all your outfits -- it’s the kind of accessory that becomes so trusted that, without even thinking, you reach to put it on every morning. Most casual watches serve function over fashion. They are rugged but still stylish. Generally, an excellent casual watch’s characteristics will separate it from higher-end watches.

The first is that a casual watch typically works better as an automatic versus a mechanical -- they’re meant to take some beatings, after all. Second, they shouldn’t be considered luxury items. A snakeskin watch strap and a gaudy twenty-thousand dollar wrist weight won’t work. At the end of the day, a casual watch will serve some good looks, but it’ll mainly function as a tool for your hobbies and your off time. Here are some of the best casual watches that won’t break the bank.
