Gentlemen's Club

Leave no stone unturned for men's jewelry

From diamonds to colored gemstones to plain metal, men’s jewelry reflects design versatility. Diamonds add a spark to cuff links and tie tacks. Color creates a bold look for fashion-forward customers, while sporty or sophisticated designs in a variety of metals help your customers make a statement of style.

When stocking men’s jewelry, keep in mind yellow gold has new life. And combinations of metals or finishes can be dressy or casual. Offer styles with a sprinkle of diamonds, a dash of colored gemstones or a swath of enamel. However, keep the colors strong – dark greens, deep blues or saturated reds. These will pop against white or yellow metal.

Also consider your customers’ interests and tastes by offering designs from sport to animal motifs.
