Some men are not overly keen on wearing jewellery but this seems to be a changing trend away from when only a watch was an acceptable article to be seen on the stronger sex.
Many men are more comfortable wearing necklaces or gold bracelets as long as they are sufficiently thick and masculine. Finer chain jewellery is much more suited to women with the exception of a fine necklace chain if worn with a pendant.
A solid gold bracelet for a man will generally be quite thick and chunky and this can drive the cost up as chain jewellery is priced based on the weight of the precious metal more so than any other factors. With gold prices continuing to rise and no change in the foreseeable future, many are turning to silver as a cheaper alternative at a much reduced cost in comparison.
Both types are equally beautiful and cost isn’t the only factor in choosing one over the other. Silver jewellery just looks better on some people and as it is all about impression, you would have to choose firstly for this reason.
