Jewelry is, without a doubt, the most important accessory we can wear. It’s often the first thing other people notice after your wardrobe. Women have understood this for years. However, recently men’s jewelry has gained in popularity, and now they are enjoying the benefits of donning nice pieces of jewelry as well.
For me, no other accessory can more adequately express my own individuality and personality. Whether your tastes are trendy and urban or traditional and timeless, you can find a wide variety of great jewelry that can express your own individual style better than any other accessory you can wear. However, that’s not the only reason unique jewelry is definitely here to stay!
- Jewelry lasts forever. That may be a slight exaggeration, but it is true that you can keep wearing a good quality ring, bracelet or necklace year after year while other pieces of your wardrobe – like clothes, shoes, wallets and handbags – wear out much faster. I admit that I have occasionally had to fix a clasp or polish out a few scratches, but not much more than that. The truth is that good jewelry lasts and lasts, which makes it an exceptionally smart addition to your wardrobe.
- Jewelry fashions never really go out of style. Although there may be some pieces that are more trendy or in vogue from year to year, jewelry styles really are timeless. Just think of how fashionable it is to find an old brooch or necklace in a secondhand store, shine it up a bit and incorporate it into your own contemporary wardrobe! Older pieces of jewelry aren’t seen as outdated relics – instead, they’re viewed as nostalgic reminders of times gone by.
- Quality jewelry can be, literally, a good investment. Not only is jewelry a great bargain when it comes to adding accessories to your collection of apparel, it can also be a wise investment choice, particularly in regard to precious metals. For example, several reputable online jewelry retailers offer extraordinarily low prices on men’s jewelry made from precious metals, such as a polished platinum ring with a domed profile. What a great feeling to know that you’re not only adding a signature piece of unique jewelry to your wardrobe, but also making a smart investment in precious metals at the same time!
- Jewelry is a mood booster! That may sound strange, but it’s really true. Just as a pretty dress can lift a woman’s spirits, or a handsome suit can make a man feel good about how he looks, jewelry can do all that and much more. Even if I’m wearing a denim shirt and an old pair of jeans, all I need to do is add a pair of earrings and suddenly I feel like I’m ready to face the world. The same is true with my husband – no matter what he’s wearing, once he adds a nice men’s bracelet and dog tag style pendant to the ensemble, he feels better about how he looks!
Just think about all the advantages jewelry brings to our lives. Not only is it durable, timeless and a good investment, but it simply makes us feel better about ourselves and how we look to the rest of the world. Whether you’re a woman who’s enjoyed the benefits of jewelry for many years, or a man who’s just now beginning to explore the huge assortment of men’s jewelry currently available, you can’t deny what an important role jewelry plays in our lives.
As it turns out, that’s nothing new – people have been wearing jewelry since prehistoric times. Even our cavemen ancestors, who strung attractive stones on vines and wore them around their necks, understood the enduring allure of jewelry. Considering we’ve worn it consistently since the dawn of time, I think it’s pretty safe to say that jewelry is definitely here to stay!
