Timeless Silver Jewelry For Men!

Mens JewelryWhen you think about it – men do not have a whole lot of options in the world for jewelry.  While I know that men … celebrities at least have a lot of choices, they are usually too expensive for the modern man and that is the main reason why men do not buy jewelry.  Well, there are truly a lot of pieces out there that many guys don’t know about and one of them is this stainless steel dog tag.

Dog tags are something that are very in style right now for guys and they are something that are never – ever going to go out of style either.  Personally, I love a guy that wears a silver dog tag; it makes them look a little dangerous and certainly perks my interest a little bit.

If you are looking for dog tags, just look them up online – you can find them pretty much anywhere and they are ever-so-chic!

Guys, Let Jeff Cooper Make Your Love Eternal

mens-ringIt is sort of easy to forget that plenty of men like jewelry too. Sometimes the only thing that reminds me to be more gender equal is when I run across a really stunning piece, like this ring by designer Jeff Cooper.

Cooper is based in New York, and has the distinction of being voted the Designer of the Year, courtesy of the Platinum Guild International. Once you have seen his work, it is easy to understand why he earned that title.

Take, for instance, the piece here — the Jeff Cooper Eternal 12 Platinum and Diamond Mens Wedding Band. The six millimeter band features twelve princess cut diamonds with a bevel set, and it is absolutely gorgeous.

Love is eternal; marriage is eternal; fine jewelry is eternal; rings are eternal; and the ring is called Eternal — you do the math!

This Is What Happens When a Sculptor Becomes a Jewelry Designer

earringsCharles Krypell is a jewelry designer now, but he used to be a sculptor, and when you look at his pieces, that information really is not surprising. There is an exquisite attention to detail in the jewelry pieces he designs. His jewelry is absolutely timeless with a depth of sophistication.

Take, for instance, the Charles Krypell Diamond and Green Tourmaline Dangle Earrings. These are so absolutely beautiful they just about take my breath away.

The 18k earrongs are two tone gold, and they contain two green tourmaline gems with a honeycomb cushion cut. The aesthetic is extremely innovative while remaining classic, elegant, even somehow graceful.

The tourmaline is 5.78 carats, and the earrings also feature a total of .45 carat worth of round cut yellow sapphires, along with beautifully cut diamonds.

Gotta-Have Earrings by John Brana

bra2John Brana’s jewelry collections are very distinctive. That they are designer is no question, but they are also exquisite hand crafted, the pieces generally completely unique and one of a kind.

Being a lover of most things amethyst, I was immediately struck by these Amethyst Wire Wrapped 14K Gold-filled Earrings. The polished spirals are filled with 14K gold, and then wrapped by hand with round beads of amethyst. The resulting dimension is quite daring.

The color is beautiful, and I love the design as well, even though I am not typically a fan of yellow gold.

This piece is part of John Bana’s Barbary Coast Collection, which encompasses many gorgeous pieces. It is filled with beads and gemstones, plenty of amethyst, amber, onyx, citrine, prehnite, and quartz, among other gems.

Versace Has Vibrant Jewelry, Too!

ver3-2When you want classic, stylish, sophisticated clothing with an edge, you turn to Versace. When you want classic, stylish, sophisticated jewelry with an edge, you go to Versace as well.

There are a lot of labels behind the Versace brand — Versace Jeans Couture, Gianni Versace Couture, plus several more. It is in Gianni Versace Couture that you can find the most exquisite jewelry you have ever seen.

I have fallen in love with this Topaz and Diamonds White Gold Ring, for instance. Usually I am not the biggest fan of topaz but I really like this, especially the way it flows with the diamonds and the white gold, which form one of my favorite combinations. The topaz is a very opulent, very decadent blue and it is accented with two Vs in perfect symmetry, complete with brilliant cut, round pave diamonds.
