Talk of jewelry and we instantly think of women. It is but true that jewelry to a great extent is considered the forte of women alone and in spite of the fact that men's jewelry has always existed right from the time that the jewelry was first invented and crafted centuries ago we still continue to link jewelry with women. However let us not ignore the fact that not only has men's jewelry been in existence for a long time now but has also reinvented and become an integral part of a man's ensemble these days. One thing is for certain, that jewelry for women and jewelry for women are as far apart as can possibly be.
The most basic difference between jewelry for women from that of men is the look. The appearances of the two are poles apart. Where on one hand jewelry for women are pretty and feminine the men's version of the same have a more somber look and are definitely without any frills.
Although these days with men's clothes and jewelry both witnessing reinvention keeping in mind the changing preference and taste of the modern man, jewelry for men is also catching up with the elaborate and ornate look which was earlier meant for the women alone.
Another very stark difference between jewelry for women from that of men is the variety and options that are available. Not only are the categories of jewelry limited for men, they are also available in far fewer designs as compared to that of women. For example where a woman can choose from rings, earrings, pendants, necklaces, brooches, hair accessories, charms and bracelets to name a few, men have only their staple dose of rings, cufflinks and bracelets to resort to.
Also, the designs between jewelry for men and that of women also vary a great deal in the craftsmanship and the use of diamonds or gemstones. Talking of gemstones, the vibrant and colorful specks can be amply used in jewelry for women but they are quite sparingly used in jewelry for men. In fact the entire look has to suit the different personalities that men and women respectively possess.
But one thing is for certain whether it is jewelry for men or for women, they are extremely sought after for the wonderful way in which they add their color and sparkle, amply in case of women and subtly in case of men.
