Can Men Wear Pearl Necklaces?

July 17, 2014 by Melissa

Like it or not, the way your boyfriend looks can speak volumes about you as well. Most women would love for their guys to look great at any occasion, even when running errands and during everyday life. There is no better way of helping them do this than buying great accessories that they may overlook when shopping for themselves. You may not realize it, but pearls can often be a great choice for men as well. There are a variety of sizes, colors, and designs of pearl jewelry that look great on guys, but what should you choose?

Before you buy, you should be selective as there are several factors that you need to take into account. You have to consider his wardrobe, and buy pearls that are compatible with a majority of what he wears from time to time. While pearls can be tailored to almost any look on a woman, there are only certain men who can wear pearls and really pull off the look.

To start, think of occasions that pearls would work for him. Pearls on men are less applicable in formal situations, as the best look for men is a single pearl on either a  necklace or a bracelet. This is a great laid back look that works just as well on the beach as it does in the boardroom.

Necklaces are great, but just as you would do for yourself, your choice of pearls should go beyond simple necklaces. For him to look unique, you could choose a bracelet or even a ring (for a more edgy look). Shy away from anything that looks a bit too feminine, which also means that smaller pearls are out. You want something larger, as it evokes more of a masculine look, and it won’t get lost on his wrist or neck.

Buying fine pearl jewelry for a man is a great choice, but make sure to keep it simple. A single white pearl or even a few pearls organized on a bracelet or necklace is a great option. Another excellent option is to create your own look by pairing a loose Tahitian pearl with a leather strand to create a laid back necklace that he is sure to love.
