Our collection of men’s luxury jewelry just released—and we couldn’t be more obsessed.
Signet rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, cufflinks, and more are all available to be chosen and customized.
The Beginning of Men’s Jewelry Trends
It’s hard to imagine now, but men were the original wearers of jewelry.
In ancient times, jewelry was fashioned out of the bones, feathers, and hides of animals that were hunted.
Men’s jewelry was used as a form of currency, a symbol of great wealth, or to send a message with the insurance of the author.
As humanity became more sophisticated, signet rings began to take the place of other jewelry.
Ancient Egyptians wore them to show their status. They were often buried with the gold and silver pieces that adorned them during their lifetime.
How Men’s Jewelry Is Viewed Today
Over the years, men’s jewelry has been the peak of sophistication, as well as a controversial luxury.
In the 20th century, men wore dark purple and black gemstones in coat pins, pocket watches, and as cufflinks. Jewelry wasn’t mass made, so many of the items worn were commissioned by men of high standing.
Then, men’s jewelry fell off the map. It needed time to collect itself and come back even brighter than before.
In recent years, men’s jewelry trends have risen from the dead, soaring into magazines and social media feeds.
Iconic men like Harry Styles, Timothee Chalamet, and more can be seen fully decked out in piles of gemstones.
Today, there are no restrictions on the types or colors of jewelry men can wear. Choose what makes you feel the most yourself.
3 Steps to Wearing Luxury Jewelry
If you’re new to fine jewelry, you may be wondering how to wear it and what to choose.
Here are some ideas to help you get started:
1. Choose a Gold that Suits You
Surprise—men’s jewelry comes with more gold options than women’s! At Diamondere, most of our men’s jewelry can be customized with yellow gold, white gold, silver gold, rose gold, black gold, or even blue gold.
You’ll want to choose your gold color based on a few things:
- The clothes you most regularly wear and how you would like your jewelry to match.
- Any featured gemstones within the jewelry piece and how they complement the gold color.
- Your overall budget for this piece and future jewelry.
2. Select a Gemstone
Selecting a gemstone is the most exciting part of shopping for men’s luxury jewelry. The world is your oyster.
But if this is your first piece of fine jewelry, you may be looking for some guidance.
Some of our most popular stones for men’s jewelry include black diamonds, white diamonds, opals, Ceylon sapphire, iolite, and topaz.
Browse our men’s collection by stones to see which one is your favorite.
Men’s Jewelry Options without Gemstones
One unique thing about men’s jewelry is that some styles prefer to have no gemstones at all.
Instead, they are fashioned fully out of stunning gold. You can choose a special design, like a plain ring band or signet ring, which focuses on the shape and color of the ring instead of a gemstone.
3. Order the Jewelry For You
You’re ready to purchase your first piece of men’s luxury jewelry.
When ordering, feel free to consult one of our jewelers with any questions you may have about gemstone sizes, gold karat weight, and more.
Before you order, ensure you know your ring size or bracelet size. Consider having your piece engraved with poetry, song lyrics, or a love note.

I have worked in the jewelry industry for over 15 years. I began my career designing jewelry and then started hand-crafting it myself. Over time, I realized that customers today while customizing their jewelry or picking out an engagement ring, could benefit greatly from the wealth of experience I have in this industry. Today, I love helping customers and in a small way, be a part of their emotional journey (since every jewelry purchase for me is an emotional experience).
