Men’s jewellery is trending in 2023! Gone are the days when men were limited to watches, wedding bands and cufflinks (you best believe they will still never go out of style). In 2023, we are seeing some more daring jewellery trends for men emerge as more men experiment with pushing the boundaries of what is considered masculine and fashionable.
In this post, learn about 12 jewellery trends for men that will be popular in 2023!
1. Signet Rings
Signet rings have been around for centuries. Many may consider signet rings old-fashioned, however, they are having a moment again! Before handwriting was a thing, signet rings were traditionally used to sign off and seal documents and therefore are always totally unique to the individual. Many men still choose to wear signet rings as a classy fashion statement as well as a nod to their family heritage or even to their school, army or other significant groups they belong to.
In 2023, men are opting for unique designs and are expanding beyond the traditional family crest or initials. These days you can find signet rings in a variety of shapes, metals and finishes with options to customise the design on the face of the ring.
At Off the Map, we have a wide range of traditional and unique signet rings for men, that make a meaningful addition to any man’s accessory collection.
2. Chain Necklaces
Chain necklaces are another accessory for men that are making a comeback in 2023. Chunky and heavy chains and statement necklaces are as popular as ever. They add a touch of style to even the most casual outfit. Chain necklaces can be worn on their own or layered with other chains of various lengths, weights and metals. Unique or traditional pendants can be added to the chains to express style and to make an impression.
Cufflinks are a classic accessory for men. Every man should have at least one pair for those odd special occasions. In 2023 we are seeing an emerging trend of cufflinks moving from being reserved for formal occasions to more casual, everyday outfits. Cufflinks are becoming more unique in their design and materials to match the evolving fashion trends for men.
4. Pendant Necklaces
Pendant necklaces are not just for women! Pendant necklaces come in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes. They can be worn on a chain or even on a cord or leather depending on the individual's sense of style. There is a range of traditional pendants that are having a fashion moment, such as St. Christopher medallions. But there are also edgy, unique and new pendants for men to make a statement and add personality to a look.
5. Black Diamonds
Black diamonds are gaining popularity among men in 2023. Their edgy colour and mysterious nature make them the perfect luxury accessory for men. They can be incorporated into many different pieces of jewellery such as rings, cufflinks, pendants and bracelets.
It’s 2023, people! And gone are the days of brooches only being for women. Brooches are a unique fashion statement for men in 2023. Brooches add style and flair to an outfit and are an amazing way to show off your style and aesthetic in a luxurious way. Brooches can be worn on the lapel or for something different, on your tie.
7. Statement Earrings
Another traditionally female jewellery item is now becoming mainstream for men too! Earrings are an incredible accessory that can show off whatever sense of style you have. Whether it is simple and understated like a stud or small hoop to more extravagant and edgy and bold such as chunky hoops, asymmetrical looks and multiple piercings up the lobes. The sky is the limit when it comes to earring trends to explore for men.
8. Minimalistic Rings
Minimalistic rings are a popular trend in men’s fashion that is here to stay in 2023. Minimal rings are understated and add a touch of style and taste subtly. The best part is, these rings are very wearable for most men making minimalistic rings a great gateway to incorporating more jewellery into your daily wardrobe.

10. Bracelets for men
Bracelets for men are having a comeback in 2023! Bracelets with a masculine edge are trending. Chunky chains and bold designs will be popular. We will also see different types of bracelets and ways to style them in 2023.
