As gen­der lines blur in the jew­ellery world, brands are re­spond­ing with a more di­verse se­lec­tion of men’s pieces, writes Char­lene Co

he jury’s still out on how much jew­ellery men should wear. There re­main the con­ser­va­tives who in­sist that men should be seen with only three ac­ces­sories: a watch, cuff­links and a wed­ding band— tops! But the tide is turn­ing as men be­come more com­fort­able with ac­ces­soris­ing. As a re­sult, jew­ellery brands, even tra­di­tional ones, are in­tro­duc­ing or ex­pand­ing their men’s col­lec­tions to in­clude bracelets, pins, pen­dants, rings and studs.

The right way to wear men’s jew­ellery is like­wise de­bat­able; less is more, some say, while oth­ers as­sert that men should be able to wear what­ever they want in the 21st cen­tury. Here we high­light a few pieces that will sat­isfy ei­ther view.

Chantecler’s pink-gold pin in black enamel, from its Pail­lettes col­lec­tion, is dis­creet but would garner a se­cond look. Flirt­ing with that fine line be­tween safe and trendy is Chanel’s Coco Crush ring in 18K yel­low or white gold, and David Yur­man’s Ca­ble Spira bracelet made with black­ened sil­ver set with black di­a­monds. For the more ad­ven­tur­ous, there’s the Joail­lerie Gourmette de Dior ring in 18K yel­low or white gold, which is blingy but in a re­fined way; and for some colour, check out Her­mès’ eques­trian-in­spired sil­ver bracelet set with jasper and onyx slices en­graved in re­lief, from its Che­vauchée line. The bracelet’s cen­tre stone is framed with di­a­monds em­bed­ded on black rhodium. Now, gen­tle­men, it’s your time to shine. Clock­wise from above: Drive de Cartier watch; Pail­lettes pin by Chantecler; Ca­ble Spira bracelet by David Yur­man; Che­vauchée bracelet by Her­mès; Coco Crush ring by Chanel; Joail­lerie Gourmette de
