Chain Male: A Gentleman’s Guide To Necklaces

 

Nowadays, it has become more acceptable for modern men to wear jewelry around their necks. Finally, we stepped away from outdated associations (including Mr T and wearable vacation memorabilia) and realized that a simple chain or pendant is a stylish and very personal addition to any outfit. answerhop

Despite what skeptics may tell you, the chain necklace, when chosen and worn correctly, has long been a timeless masculine adornment. It is an item that allows the user to show a bit of individuality, as well as appreciate the finer details, and it can even have sentimental significance. computersmarketing

Buying Considerations

Equipment

David Yourman

Gold is undoubtedly the luxury option here, but with great power comes great responsibility: you have to choose wisely to avoid straying into "sticky" territory. So, leave the flashy oversized chains to the rappers and go for a slimmer, more understated design. It is also wise to go for the highest quality gold possible (think 14 karats or more) to ensure richness and depth of color. That said, for your first foray into necklaces, it's perfectly acceptable to go with a gold-plated sterling silver chain (again, go 14k or more) to keep the cost down. When wearing it, look to pair gold chains with darker or black tones to create a sophisticated contrast. hollyhealthfitness

Silver is a classic, comfortable and effortless option when it comes to men's necklaces and should be considered your safe space. While gold is a brighter metal that demands attention, silver is subtle and pairs well with a traditional menswear palette of gray, navy blue, and olive green. If longevity is important to you, opt for solid sterling silver rather than the “silver” models, which are often cheaper to produce and of lower quality.

Size and length

The thickness of the chain will determine the importance of your new accessory. If you go for a simple design without a pendant, a thickness of around 2-6mm and a length of between 18-22 inches (ending just below the collarbone) is fine for most men. Pendants, on the other hand, are often more beautiful with a slightly longer chain, between 25 and 28 inches, ending in the middle of your chest.

Pendant

Miansai

To add a pendant or not to add a pendant? That is the question. Those who want something classic and minimalist will avoid it, but the question arises: why not? A pendant is an opportunity to add something personal and intriguing, allowing for a little self-expression. There is a wide variety of icons and symbols out there, so it's worth looking for something that matches your taste and personality.
