CHAPTER 1:FOR THEM, IT IS A WAY TO SPICE UP THEIR OUTFITS.
It is no longer left to royalty like in the past, where kings and nobles wore gold and diamond pieces as a sign of prestige.
Nowadays, if you can afford it, then you can wear it. While there is an evident transition, some hold a traditional view of masculinity and what they can and cannot wear.
CHAPTER 2: IN LIGHT OF THAT, JEWELRY HAS, FOR A LONG TIME, HAS BEEN VIEWED AS FEMININE.
More men are, however, breaking away from that stereotype. It is not uncommon to spot men with tiaras and dangling earrings at the Met Gala.
Not all men go to these extremes, but it’s become more acceptable in the recent past.
What a relief that the latest male style icons are increasingly liberated in their approach, often surprisingly so. The young actor Timothée Chalamet wears prominent bracelets, necklaces, and rings. He made waves by attending one event in a glittering Louis Vuitton harness that was like an immense piece of jewellery in itself. Clearly, Chalamet is at ease with his sexuality, and is not averse to either flamboyance or experimentation.
The actor Chadwick Boseman is similarly free-wheeling and uninhibited in his style choices. He is especially interesting because he played the lead in the Marvel film Black Panther, essentially a conventional macho comic-book hero. But that film is also famous for breaking a lot of rules, and so is Boseman. His dress often plays with notions of how a man should look. He recently caused a stir when he appeared at an awards ceremony wearing three very large diamond brooches by Tiffany & Co. And the consensus is that he is a trend-setter.
CHAPTER 3: THE OTHER REASON WHY MORE MEN ARE WEARING JEWELRY IS THE FADING BELIEFS ABOUT SEXUALITY
In the hippy era of the 1970s and in different cultures, it was not common to find men wearing one stud. However, heterosexual men had to follow the prevailing culture of which ear meant they were “straight,” and which one would imply that they were “gay.”
We live in a world beyond just he and she. Jewlry is about self-expression. All of the jewelry transcends the spectrum of our lives. In recent years, the fashion code governing masculinity has loosened, blurring the traditional line between male and female fashion, which seems to be increasingly liberating men from access to jewelry. They wear conspicuous bracelets, necklaces, and rings. This shows that they are fee-spirited and undisturbed by style choices.
Also, jewelry designers have to carry more size and inventory for jewelry. They no longer design for a specific gender. They are getting rid of gender norms that classify jewelry as “feminine”, or “masculine” rather than clothes worn by men and women in their own way. The design for men and women to express their personality by wearing jewelry. In fact, it can change not only the sex but also the fabric of clothing and mind.
I don’t believe there are rules when it comes to people’s individual sense of style. People should express themselves however they wish to and this includes through their waring of jewelry.
People should rethink and fix the concept of tradition and gender norms about fashion and jewelry in time for today.
