Recently, men’s jewelry has come into the spotlight. Years back, Tiger Woods began wearing magnetic bracelets to apparently help his golf game. These bracelets were titanium, Mens rings and were often within the cuff style. Well, I have no idea if the bracelet improved his game however it may have helped start the ball rolling on the bracelet jewelry trend. Shortly after, more and more professional golfers started to wear these bracelets and very soon after that a lot more golf enthusiasts. Not surprisingly, these enthusiasts were soon wearing their “golf” bracelets constantly. Perhaps they considered that the more they wore their bracelet, the higher benefit it would have. In hindsight, I wonder if there was something more to the increased interest in these seemingly functional-only bracelets.
Years later, professional cyclist Lance Armstrong unveiled his now infamous yellow rubber “Live Strong” bracelet and launched his Lance Armstrong Foundation. These little yellow yet powerful bracelets were soon being worn by everybody from celebrities in your nearby neighbor – men included. Lance’s choice of material – rubber – and color (very gender neutral) were probably key factors to their immediate and widespread popularity. This can be, obviously, not to mention the bracelets were for any worthy cause and led by certainly one of America’s favored sportsman during the time.
Well, many years have passed because the Tiger Woods magnetic bracelet as well as the Live Strong bracelet. However, the jewelry designers started to pay attention of the bracelet trend and immediately went to work creating men’s jewelry, and in some cases entire men’s collections. Eventually year’s JCK jewelry trade event in Vegas, numerous designers showed off their mens jewelry and collections. Several themes emerged from the many designers. Popular materials were sterling silver (think John Hardy Jewelry and David Yurman Jewelry and leather, platinum and white gold (think the D.Side collection, accented with tiny diamonds, by Damiani), and also rubber (think the Falco for Men collection by Di Modolo). The rubber material may have been inspired from the Live Strong bracelet or through the material now being popular strap choices for mens sport watches. Popular items were bracelets, perhaps due to the early pioneers of the Skull jewelry trend and pendants on sturdy chains (again consider the D.Side collection by Damiani). While women’s jewelry has become the core of attention, men can finally find multiple luxury designers and luxury jewelry intended simply for them with the sole purpose of enhancing their style with classy, attractive and never-too-blinged-out jewelry.
With all the changing times, even the latest fashions have changed. Formerly, where jewelry was only meant for women, it provides acquired a totally different meaning.

The sudden boom within the men’s jewelry market has mainly been due the creation of the trendy yet affordable sterling and silver bits of adornment.
