Men’s jewellery might have once seemed like a novelty trend that was unlikely to ever catch on, but in 2022, it’s having a moment – and now, we’re seeing all manner of celebrities and high-profile individuals pioneering the trend.

Harry Styles is perhaps one of the most notable to embrace the look, with his signature string of pearls and stacked rings, and as the trend continues to gather momentum, we’re seeing a plethora of shiny new launches from some of the most high profile fashion houses in the world. From Prada’s metal triangle rings to Timothée Chalamet’s new range for Cartier, men’s jewellery is officially on the hot list for this year, and every sartorial male should be taking note.

According to market-research company Euromonitor International, global sales of men’s luxury fine jewellery aren’t just set to spike in 2022, but have been growing steadily since as early as 2012. For decades prior, it was almost unheard of for men to be seen wearing anything more than a simple wedding band, school or signet ring, but in the 1970s, The Godfather films initiated the first signs of change, starting a trend for men’s rings as the ultimate symbol of power.

Fast forward to today, and it’s clear that men’s rings are experiencing a style revolution. Lianzhen Yang, CEO of Pala Leather, says that men’s rings have become one of the most popular accessories, crediting several different reasons for the trend.

“First, men are becoming more interested in fashion and accessories. Second, there are now more styles of men’s rings available than ever before, so there is something for everyone. Third, men’s rings make great gifts. And finally, many men see wearing a ring as a sign of confidence and masculinity,” she says.

Men’s jewellery tends to be marketed towards the fearless male customer who wants to stand out from the crowd, and is confident enough in his masculinity to embraces his own style, and expresses it through what he chooses to wear –  including clothing and accessories.

In 2022, we’re seeing more men throwing caution to the wind and embracing their own personal style than ever before as society becomes more accepting of a broader range of identities, which means that now, there is more variety to choose from than ever before. And with some of the biggest fashion brands in the world championing men’s jewellery on the catwalks, if you’ve waited this long to splurge on some for yourself, then now is the time to try out the look.

If you’re in need of a little inspiration as you head on your digit adornment journey, there are myriad of brands and designers to choose from around the world. If wearing something other than a wedding band still sounds a little adventurous, then try getting out of your comfort zone, and be prepared to wear your new-found accessories with confidence. After all, it’s the key to almost any outfit being successfully received – so love it, and others will, too.

If you’re unsure where to begin your search for your next style statement, then make your first port of call the exciting new luxury jewellery brand, Holy Gems. The company is making waves in the jewellery world, and owns the exclusive marketing rights for all precious certified gems mined from the first deposit of precious gems ever discovered in the Holy Land of Israel. So, by shopping with this burgeoning new brand, you’ll be getting something exclusive, rare and, of course, undeniably beautiful.

Having cultivated an established presence in the diamond and luxury jewellery market over three generations, the Holy Gems’ founders and management eventually decided that the market was ripe for a collection that is truly exclusive, transparent, spiritual, and extremely rare, and it is precisely this that they have brought to market, with men’s rings a natural category in the 101 one-of-a-kind collection. 

The brand’s designer, Michaella Taub, was inspired by the Bible to create two particularly outstanding pieces for the men’s collection. ‘Twelve Blessings’ is a breath-taking 18k gold men’s ring crafted with 2.92 carats of black high-end Spinel, while ‘Joseph’s Ring’ is a stunning 18k gold men’s ring created with 2.34 carats of black high-end spinel. Both are fast becoming some of the most highly coveted rings of the season, but there are a number of different twists on the men’s ring trend to consider, with one to suit every taste and style – you just have to shop around.

Laura Roncagli, professional stylist and co-founder of MyBeautik, based in Venice, Italy, says that chunky rings are a particular trend to embrace this year.

“Similar to the trends surrounding women’s rings lately, big and chunky rings are also the rule for men’s rings,” she says. 

“Big rings accompanied by simpler ones, even two rings per finger, is one of the most common ways to style them lately. Pricier rings, like those by designer brands, are a great gift for men that have already expressed their interest in rings.”

It’s clear that this growing fashion isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and is set to be one of the strongest looks of the year for the sartorial male. But will the trend continue beyond 2022 – and if so, what’s next?

Marketing manager of Moriarty’s Gem Art, Jeff Moriarty, says: “We have been in the jewellery business for over 40 years. Over the past year, we have seen men’s fashion, especially men’s rings, become bigger, flashier and more in demand than ever. This is why we have started designing more men’s rings with large coloured gemstones, meteorites and in different metals besides just yellow gold.”
