What is the purpose of buying accessories for guys?
There are only two most logical answers to this question:
- You are a guy who is eager to improve his style, show his character and declare to himself through stylish modern attributes.
- You are a girl who is looking for a flawless and special gift for the man you love the most.
Both options offer unlimited possibilities and in the huge assortment of gent's products you can easily find something exclusive and worthy of the greatest man. However, the key role in the selection is always played by the individual preferences and wishes of the guy, his tastes and moods. The ideal jewel style should be your calling card if chosen wisely, and in this guide, we will give you tips on how to do it.
The right choice of accessories can add masculinity, sophistication, elegance or boldness to the image - it all depends on your goal, i.e., whether it will be graceful and delicate accents or bright and spectacular jewellery that immediately attracts attention. You will become better versed in precious stones and metals, design features and the nuances of their combinations, get a lot of new ideas and inspiration to create your own unique collection or find the right present. This will be relevant both for beginners in the jewellery topic and for the most experienced connoisseurs, so let's not delay!
What kind of jewels do men wear more often?
There is no consensus on this issue - some guys prefer to use fewer accessories, while others more boldly mix different styles and use the full potential of their wardrobe. But if we talk about the really most popular elements that are present in masculine images more often than others, then these are:
And each attribute has its own meaning. So, watches are used to demonstrate the status and wealth of their owner, rings are a symbol of luxury and obligations (as in the case of a marriage one), and cufflinks are a tribute to vintage chic and the best addition to formal and solemn attire.
The second category includes slightly simpler, but no less popular products, such as:

And the third category is more contemporary attributes that are more to the liking of true fashionistas who closely follow trends. This is about:

The FJewellery catalogue contains both classic and more original models from all three categories, and we invite you to decide for yourself what is more relevant for your style and wardrobe.
It's not just a pretty piece of jewelry for guys, but also a great investment and highly functional item.

Golden cufflinks are a whole philosophy - men treat them with reverence and this is extremely important to consider. Their range is large and knowing the preferences, it's not difficult to select the flawless model.

There is no need to go into details and paint all the nuances here - couples select such accessories according to their own tastes and often make them to order, as they crave their love symbol to be truly unique. But recently, the fashion for another unusual rings has returned to us, which can be attributed to this topic, and now we want to talk about them more specifically.
There are people who call them engagement, while others don't give clear definitions, but put a special meaning into such a gift to a dear person.

Increasingly, girls want to make the groom a pleasant surprise, something valuable and unique that will connect them both and reveal women's feelings much deeper than just words. Any design is suitable for such a ring - you personally know much better what your loved one will like and what precious style can conquer him. The most popular choices among our clients usually appear:
- golden or platinum rings;
- massive products with diamonds;

A highly personalised accessory that is traditionally associated with mens looks. Initially, such pendants were used by soldiers, but later this custom acquired a more sentimental connotation. After the war, necklaces were often kept in families as a memory of a close family member and passed on to the next generations. Today, this jewel has become a symbol of a strong bond between two loving people and is a great present with meaning. Any word, text or even a photo can be engraved on a rigid metal plate - a truly exclusive and valuable thing.
This fashion was laid down by the Egyptian pharaohs, and it has passed more than one millennium, but has survived to this day. At different periods of history, such decorations were considered both an ideal male attribute and an inadmissible one - contradictions only kindle interest.
