Since the age of kings, we humans have been obsessed with jewelry. Using the shiniest of precious metals, the flashiest of gems, and the most tedious processes, we've used jewelry as an extension of ourselves and our status in the world.
I am not Dr. Freud or anything, but I am pretty sure flexing is a core component of the human experience and that's what makes buying jewelry almost a cheat code when looking to buy someone a gift. It's pretty much hard-wired into our brains to appreciate precious metals and rare gemstones when they are presented to us.
The questions today across fashion-filled social feeds are still the same: How do you style jewelry? And what are the best jewelry brands? Specifically, in the realms of jewelry for men things can get convoluted. You can go from looking like A$AP Rocky to Slick Rick the Ruler real fast (No, disrespect to the Ruler, he's one of the GOATs).
Today's curated guide will help you find the right jewelry to fit that person who you are looking to buy something special, using a healthy mix of seasonless go-to and trendy, eye-catching pieces that are sure to shake up your wardrobe.

Vivienne Westwood Man Stuart Faux Pearl Necklace
Faux necklace - definitely not a faux pas. Turn heads with this delectable piece of pearl.
Vivienne Westwood Bas Relief Earrings
Vivienne has always had a distinctive style, setting her apart from the masses. This particular set of earrings has a very Vivienne Westwood circa 1980 vibe to it, and that orb is an archetypal symbol of the counterculture she spearheaded at the time. Turning polite society on its head, she was never one to shy away from doing away with the status quo. Male earrings, we'd argue, is very much in that lane.
Vivienne Westwood Bas Relief Cufflinks
If you're just two holes shy of a earring-bearing aesthetic, this pair of cufflinks allows you to flaunt the orb in all its glory - albeit in a slightly more demure fashion.
Dries van Noten – Logo Tag Necklace Silver
The missing piece to your complete Dries outfit crafted from silver-toned brass.
Acne Studios Coin Pendant Necklace
Along with producing a diverse range of knitwear and essentials, Acne Studios also has solid jewelry options like this multi-row link chain crafted with an antique gold finish.
Saint Laurent Cassandre Double-Row Leather Bracelet
So far, so metallic. This bracelet offers a distinction, since it's composed of lamb leather. A delicate strap makes for finessed delicacy that drapes your wrist ever so lightly - a way of being comfortable in your masculinity, by honoring the femininity in you as well.
Hatton Labs Heart Signet Ring
Hearts are a timeless option when it comes to adorning yourself with eye-catching imagery. Whether you're looking to expand your accessories or surprise your special someone just cause, this sterling silver option is a solid choice.
Viltier Edge 18kt Gold Ring
We love a gold moment, and this Viltier ring adds dimensions and subtle drama by way of interlocking, offset golden bars that form into a circular delight for the eyes.
Viltier Edge Gold Bangle
A complementing bangle in the style of the ring above, it feels like something goldsmiths of old would have crafted in their small, fog-filled and (we think) dreamy workshops. A simple expression often does it best, and this pair does this to perfection.
Maison Margiela Logo Cuff Silver
Almost dystopian in its grey starkness, this wouldn't be out of place on a Hunger Games set. We can almost see this hanging from Jennifer Lawrence's wrist as she volunteers as tribute. Emblematic of the brutalist movement, this has the coloring, finish as well as unfussy form absolutely characteristic of the era.
