First of all, anyone can wear anything, so all jewelry is inherently unisex. With that being said, jewelry brands marketed as unisex and for men are in the middle of a major, long-awaited revolution—a gleaming departure from quotidian chains and tired leather bracelets into a whole world of possibility. Pearls, bold signet rings, powerful metals, hand-sculpted forms, elongated single earrings, and bright gemstones are all at the forefront of this new era, and we couldn't be more excited.

No matter how a brand markets itself, it's important to remember that jewelry is genderless, and it’s never too late to begin wearing it. The increase in men's and unisex jewelry brands simply means more options are available to fit every aesthetic, making it a great time to hunt for a few new pieces if your style could use a special finishing touch.

More than any other form of adornment, jewelry is immune to trend cycles—and as such, it’s a worthy investment. A good jewelry piece can transform the most simple outfits into noteworthy ensembles, elevate your daily uniform, and accentuate your personal style. It can also hold special significance by marking meaningful moments, beliefs, and relationships.
