It used to be that the only two pieces of jewelry a man could wear was a fine timepiece and his wedding band. But as workday dress codes have made more space for one’s sartorial whims, it should be no surprise that it comes with an uptick in men’s fine jewelry. At McTeigue & McClelland, we’ve worked to create a collection of covetable men’s pieces that are as easy to wear as Levis but crafted from the finest metals and exceptional gemstones.
A study in alchemy, many of the pieces in the men’s collection combine different metals, like the 18k yellow gold and wrought iron, in our Medium Link bracelet. But the collection doesn’t stop at meticulous metalwork. Fine and rare stones—from brown diamonds to landscape jasper and fossilized wooly mammoth ivory—result in pieces that are refined yet robust.
"Our gentlemen’s collection is entirely unique in the jewelry kingdom,” says Tim McClelland. "Every piece is a one-of- a-kind creation. A combination of the rarest of gems and subtle, understated design, these pieces reflect the sophisticated individuality of the wearer. Even men who would never consider wearing jewelry are embracing this collection.”
So what’s the key to pulling off men’s jewelry? It's all about attitude. Paul Newman confidently wore a massive ring with a cameo of a roman emperor and never was there a better advertisement for simple white t-shirt plus pendant necklace than Ryan Gosling. The trick is that it should look like you've been wearing the piece for years, so look for a piece that speaks to your style. Love the outdoors? Dinosaur bone cufflinks would put a rugged twist on a formal shirt. More of a scotch-in-the-library kind of guy? Something smart like a fair-mined gold ring set with a Mozambique ruby might be more your thing.
