Men have been wearing jewelry since time immemorial
Ancient engravings show prehistoric men wearing ornaments (most often necklaces and bracelets) made of bone, wood, shells, greenhouse eagles, animal teeth... For historians, these jewels represented marital status, membership of a clan, a religion... They were also a sign of power, perhaps to be oneself, a means of communication.
For centuries, jewelry symbolized wealth. Set with precious stones, they were reserved for the wealthy: kings, politicians, nobles, members of the clergy...
If in the 19th century, men's jewelry was somewhat forgotten , in the third millennium they regain their titles of nobility. Today a man who wears a jewel is a man who has style. Jewels with this gift of sublimating any outfit.
