This is a Guest Post from\u00a0\u00a0Jason Phillips.\r\nYou may have heard that men can't get away with jewellery \u2013 and we're pleased to tell you that whoever said that is wrong. Men can definitely get away with jewellery, it's just a matter of figuring out what works.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n[title subtitle=""]Things to Try[\/title]\r\n\r\nSo what kind of jewellery should you are looking at? As we mentioned \u2013 less is more. The key to looking classy and refined whilst wearing jewelry, is to go with subtle and meaningful. Every piece you wear should have a story to tell. Our favourite key items to work into your wardrobe are:\r\nSignet Rings\r\nSignet rings should be a staple of every man's wardrobe. Depending on your skin tone and what style of clothes you're wearing, you'll want to look into different metals. Gold is great for a warmer, softer aesthetic and is one of the more conventional choices. Silver is much cooler, and also, much more affordable! You could also go for one of the more unusual choices \u2013 such as titanium or stainless steel.\r\n\r\nOne advantage of signet rings is that as well as being a subtle, statement piece; they can also have a lot of meaning. Many people choose to get an image engraved \u2013 university or school crests being particularly common. You could also look for the imagery of patron saints, family crests or anything you feel would make a good story!\r\nWatches\r\n\r\n\r\nNot only are watches practical, they carry a lot of weight. If you're getting one alongside a signet ring, we recommend getting one in the same material for consistency. Whilst digital clocks have a more modern feel, we're a fan of the old-school analog \u2013 there's something refined about them that modern clocks lack. Plus, clockwork won't run out like a battery will!\r\n\r\nIf you're looking to invest, why not check out the watches that have additional features \u2013 such as being able to add on another time-zone, or work underwater? These give you something interesting to talk about, and add an air of intrigue to your persona.\r\nGet Nautical\r\n\r\n\r\nWhile leather around your neck might not be a great option, on your wrist it can be a winner. Paired with the right item such as these metal anchors from\u00a0Artem Starostenko, they combine\u00a0as a perfect highlight so your non-wristwatch doesn't look empty.\r\nSimple Chain Necklace\r\n\r\n\r\nGo for a thin (not delicate) chain necklace \u2013 again, in the same metal as your other pieces ideally. You want to look for one with interesting detailing, so something beyond plain links. Depending on your personality, you could choose to add in a simple pendant too. For Christians, a plain cross can add a lot to it, or for those who enjoy adventure, a small compass. Think about what interests you and holds meaning to you, before exploring the options.\r\n\r\n[separator type="thin"]\r\n\r\n[title subtitle=""]Things to Avoid[\/title]\r\nHalf-Destroyed Gig Wristbands\r\n\r\n\r\nNo, really. You might think they show that you're cultured and have an interesting life, but all they actually show is that you don't wash. You don't have to get rid of them entirely, of course; just don't leave them on your wrists. Why not start a travel scrapbook or pinboard \u2013 you can include all your train tickets, wristbands and other assorted memories?\r\nLeather Necklaces\r\n\r\n\r\nIf it's something you can buy from a tacky tourist shop, you shouldn't be wearing it. There are some rare leather necklaces that can work \u2013 usually the thicker, handwoven types \u2013 but the thin shoelace type cords are definitely not among them.\r\nThick, Chain Necklaces\r\n\r\n\r\nOn the other end of the spectrum are the chunky chain necklaces. If it looks like a bike chain, it shouldn't be around your neck. Remember: less is more.\r\nEnough Rings to be a Knuckleduster\r\n\r\n\r\nThis isn't a good look on anyone. If you look like your punches could leave a ring-shaped imprint on a wall, it's time to take a few off. We'll look at what rings you can and should wear later, but for now, just take them all off and give your fingers a break!\r\nOver-the-Top Belt Buckles\r\n\r\n\r\nYou know the ones we mean \u2013 the ones that come up over the shirt and make everyone look directly at your crotch. Don't do that. It's annoying and what's more \u2013 distracting in a bad way.\r\n\r\n[separator type="thin"]\r\n\r\nFrom our tips, you'll hopefully have noticed a running theme \u2013 simple, subtle and meaningful. Never wear a piece of jewellery that doesn't have a story attached, because that's part of the fun. It doesn't have to be deep \u2013 something as simple as 'that's my family crest' instantly adds intrigue and can cause a new conversation to open up.\r\n\r\nBy Jason Phillips and MyFamilySilver.com!
