Sure, there are stylish, fashionable men who have no limits to what they can get away with wearing. But how much is just too much? Men's jewellery designers agree that it depends on the man. Creative types can generally pull off more bling, while for others an understated touch is still best. Guillaume Brochard admires Dennis Chan, with whom he co-founded Qeelin. 'Dennis wears lots of necklaces, pendants, bracelets, brooches. Go one step further and you have men who wear earrings. There are stylish, fashionable men such as Dennis who have no limits. But those that are more classic are stuck with rings and cufflinks. I have tried to wear a necklace or brooch but I don't feel at ease,' says Brochard. Philip Greenwood, co-managing director of cufflink specialists One Bond Street, says style is a personal thing but he leans towards an understated approach. 'Whatever the time of day, my preference is to let a couple of striking pieces do the talking. It is worth remembering that a good pair of shoes, a nice wristwatch and well-chosen cufflinks will always draw compliments.' Evan Yurman, designer of men's jewellery and watches at David Yurman, says: 'Jewellery adds details to a person and by wearing different types of jewellery, different parts of the body are highlighted alongside the style of fashion one has.' He feels that cufflinks and wedding rings are not the only choices for casual wear, while his company's product line reflects the expanded limits for men's jewellery. 'We have special design belt buckles with leather belts, bracelets in braided rubber, spiritual beads or other stones, collections of rings in sterling silver or 18k gold, necklaces with tags, and pendants,' Yurman says. In addition, Yurman signet rings are perfect for someone looking for exclusive jewels with aesthetic craftsmanship, says Yurman, who launched his first men's collection in 2004. The range is suitable for men of all ages and pieces are for everyday wear or special occasions.
