Throw out the quiche. There is a new litmus test for sophisticated, cultured gents, and it comes in the form of jewelry. We’ve assembled some of the hottest picks for fashion-savvy men this season, and giving you the 4-1-1 on how to wear them…
Suzane Felson’s Sterling and Iolite Cufflinks make a bold statement without being flashy. An ideal accent to work attire, the denim blue iolite stands out from plain old silver or black. The look is sophisticated and stylish without being over-the-top. www.barneys.com
Great Fashion, Good Karma
Send out some good karma with a spin of this Tibetan Prayer Wheel from ROCKRAS by Kimberly McDonald. Made in 18k yellow or white gold, it looks great on a leather cord or gold chain. The history behind the real Tibetan Prayer Wheel Tibetan Buddhist believe that by saying the mantra that is engraved on the prayer wheel evokes blessings, and by spinning the wheel while saying it, blessings are sent out into the world. This is a piece you’ll put on and wanna leave on. www.rockras.com
What’s Your Sign?
You’re not the type to ever use a cheesy pick-up line anyhow, but with this hammered sterling silver Zodiac Pendant by Kerry MacBride, you wouldn’t need it. Shown here in Scorpio, the design is simple, masculine and can be worn with virtually everything. www.neimanmarcus.com
Veloce’s Acrylic Skull Watch has a black face with skull motif and a black bezel. The water resistant timepiece is on a black acrylic strap. Hip sporty look that goes from weekend casual to date night chic. www.barneys.com
The Gucci silver and leather bracelet – Aged sterling in the shape of a horse bit with a leather band looks great with jeans. The statement: rugged, earthy, and carefree. Available at www.neimanmarcus.com
Time After Time
The Milus Zetios is a stainless steel watch with sapphire crystal. With features like automatic winding, hands on the face tipped with white SuperLuminova (so you can see in the dark), and both second hand and date features at the 6 and 12 respectively. An Alligator band makes this the quintessential work/dress watch. www.tourneau.com.
