Fresh, modern men’s jewellery

It wasn’t that long ago that the modern man feared being laughed at for wearing jewellery, but times have changed. Now, not only is men’s jewellery considered fashionable, it is also sought after by many men.

The latest jewellery designs share common themes and materials, and if you are searching for a gift for the man in your life, you’ll find some suitable suggestions below:

Leather and stainless steel

Recently these materials have featured in men’s jewellery and leather and stainless steel are often used in bracelets and necklets as they look more masculine and balanced.

The crucifix/cross

The crucifix and cross have long been a part of classic jewellery design, but modern designers have put a fresh twist on them. For example, Emporio Armani and Thomas Sabo have created contemporary designs with a masculine edge for the modern male.


Some people may consider cufflinks old-fashioned, but they are definitely making a comeback – and not just for formal wear.

Engraved cufflinks are very much in style now, according to the experts, but don’t ignore classic solid gold or silver, as these will always be smart.

The bracelet

Despite the variety of styles, one strong trend in 2017 is the skull and crossbones, and which is still used by designer labels such as Alexander McQueen.

This type of design is well-suited to the modern male who likes their jewellery to look manly and masculince.

Diamond jewellery

You can never go wrong with this beautiful gem. Whether it’s set in a ring, an earring or a cufflink, the diamond is a definite part of contemporary men’s jewellery.


Whatever the occasion or your budget, there is a piece of modern men’s jewellery that will be ideally suited for a gift.

However, if you want a distinctive piece of jewellery especially for the man you love, visit Diamonds by Design and ask about our bespoke design service.
