Traditionally, men's jewelry has always been discreet. A beautiful watch, an elegant silver band can add sophistication to an outfit while being difficult to notice. However, there has been a change in fashion in recent years. Some don't hesitate to wear much more daring things. For example men's necklaces in pearls, baroque-style earrings, finely decorated brooches or even diamond jewelry (which is no longer the prerogative of these ladies ).
Rappers, spearheading this evolution of men's jewelry
The red carpet trend has started to gain traction thanks to rappers such as Gucci Mane, Swae Lee and A$AP Rocky. They have often been seen wearing a pearl or crystal necklace with disconcerting confidence. At this year's Met Gala, Harry Styles caused a stir when he showed up with a single pearl earring. It looked like it had come straight out of a Johannes Vermeer painting. People who aren't afraid to get wet, like Ezra Miller, have gone even further. He didn't hesitate to wear chandelier earrings that he could very well have found in his grandmother's jewelry box.
Jewelers offer more options for men
On the catwalk side, jewelers are experimenting more and more, which is opening up new possibilities in terms of men's jewelry. Dior Homme offers intricate brooches, Celine long earrings, Ryan Roche men's pearl necklaces. Gucci, the master of the baroque, meanwhile made his models wear a tiara. The same one that we could see on the singer's head in a photo published on Instagram.
Men's jewelry: they are more and more daring
The males who have developed a strong taste for jewelry are not only found in artistic spheres. The everyday man wears more and more jewelry, and the models are always more daring. In any case, this is the opinion of jewelry designer Maria Tash. She has certainly worked with Anwar Hadid, Ed Sheeran and Idris Elba. But it's not just her celebrity clients who are willing to try new things.
It is clear that the lines between men's and women's fashion are already blurring. Why should it be any different when it comes to jewelry?
