* Find jewelry that’s easy to work into everyday style
* Choose pieces that are on trend, but inspired by classics
* Sophisticated, low-key and not too flashy options work best

Masterful jewelry-wearing has always been tricky for men, but recent trends are proving that it might be getting easier. Although most men can’t pull off eight rings and four chains like Kanye West, there’s still a decent amount of options for men looking to get that little bit of sophisticated flash that jewelry adds.

For most people, the wrong jewelry (or too much of it) can be very detrimental, but the right amount has an incredible potential to elevate and inspire everyday outfits. To make finding the right item easier, we’ve pulled these five versatile pieces of jewelry to help men start or expand their jewelry collection.

1. Miansai Casing Rope Bracelet

We love Miansai for their rugged but always elegant jewelry, and this new bracelet is no exception. Made of rope and held together with gold tone metal beads, this is an easy way for anyone to step up their accessory game. Looks great layered with a bold watch as well.

2. A.P.C. Curtis Necklace

This simple silver necklace form A.P.C. can be worn over a tee, under a sweater, or with nothing but trunks and consistently add a subtle polished-ness to your look.

3. Paul Smith Football Cufflinks

If you’re suited up often, interesting cufflinks are a great way to make an outfit more fun and sophisticated at the same time. These Paul Smith Cuffs add that little glint with a soccer ball and cleat.

4. Scosha Guardian Signet Ring

Rings are big with streetwear trend-setters right now, and a classic signet ring is a great way to work that trend into an everyday style. This one from Scosha is made of solid sterling silver, and works with any size hands.

5. Nixon Brigade Leather Watch

One of Nixon’s latest releases, the Brigade features a brass case and Japanese quartz movement. As always with Nixon, this timepiece is low-key and classically inspired with modern touches.
