Alright, before beginning, I need to say that I LOVE PEARLS, and Real Men wear Pearl Jewelry. I’m not talking about your grandma’s white strands. I’m talking about funky, masculine, eye-grabbing, trendy, and cool styles.
Recently, I saw an excellent validation of my belief that males do wear pearl jewelry, and make them look cool. In San Diego, on American Idol, judge Steven Tyler of Aerosmith wore a great pearl and leather necklace that had big Tahitian pearls. Tyler’s a rock icon; therefore, admittedly he’s able to pull it off, yet, he also is quite the stylish man. Therefore, I have to imagine that if he’s able to wear something hip such as a black pearl strand, then you can, as well. Whether an average Joe or rock star, they appear great. I’ve witnessed them more and more in the media lately and in jewelry.
In surf culture, of course, beads, pearls, and shells on cords have been the popular thing for quite some time, yet what I’m referring to here is for everyday wear with your suit or jeans.
Pearls aren’t anything new, dare I say they’re vintage? Throughout history, and in most cultures these days pearls are a trend amongst men. Even Job in the Bible held pearls in high regard. They’re the birth stone of June.
Pearls are a timeless classic, birthed, or created by another living specimen. They’re illustrious, mysterious, as well as glowing with class. Being June’s birth stone and tradition to mark other life events, they ought to be the leading selection for men.
A set of cuff links that has a bespoke suite, a shiny single pearl along with a polo shirt, or talisman-styled bracelet and necklace combination with your linen button down. Pearls, for males… all of them look swell.
