Men’s Pendants: Which One is Right for You?

Posted by on 12/16/2015

Men’s pendants are one of the hottest trends in accessories right now, but some men are unsure if these necklaces will suit their own personal taste. Rest assured: there is the perfect pendant out there for everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to have a little help knowing what to look for. Here are some ideas for stylish men’s pendants for every type of style.

You favor a classic masculine look. There’s nothing more manly than the omnipresent military-inspired dog tag pendants. While they always offer the traditional oblong shape, dog tag pendants can come in a variety of materials and styles, from simple plain tags to intricately designed and decorated tags.

You have a tough time deciding between silver and gold. Why not have both? If you are struggling to pick out a pendant necklace in a single color, try a mixed metal option instead. Not only will you get the two tone look you prefer, but it will undoubtedly prove to be more versatile in matching to other oft-worn accessories, like your watch or wedding band.

You love cutting edge technology. If the latest gadget or the newest scientific development is your thing, try men’s pendants in contemporary materials. These materials are the result of more recent advancements in men’s jewelry, and often boast special features like increased durability or scratch-resistance. For state-of-the-art materials, look for men’s pendants in titanium, tungsten or ceramic.

You consider classic metal colors to be too boring. If you’re sick of the standard gold or silver tone accessories, there’s another increasingly prominent color in men’s pendants that will probably be exactly to your tastes: black. Black is one of the biggest colors in men’s jewelry in general right now, not only for its bold look, but also because of its neutral versatility. Black pendants and men’s pendants with oxidized accents are both excellent options.

You like a subtle detail. Men’s pendants these days certainly aren’t the oversized gaudy baubles of past years (the 1970s, anyone?). Small details can make a pendant necklace memorable and special while keeping it subtle. Textured accents are an understated way to add visual appeal and interest to men’s pendants without going overboard in the design department.

You like a luxurious look…at an affordable price tag. If you want to add a little opulence to your necklace but don’t want to break the bank, try men’s pendants with cubic zirconia accents. These glittering stones closely resemble diamonds, but of course, at a much more budget-friendly price tag. Like diamonds, they are most commonly seen in white in men’s pendants, but the color options are virtually limitless.
