Introducing Fine Jewelry for His Every Day
When it comes to fine jewelry, the question is often, where to start? For us, it’s an easy answer: with a 14k solid gold chain. Beyond that, the potential is endless—from cuffs and rings to materials like sterling silver and titanium. The bottom line is: you can wear fine jewelry. Anyone can.
In true Mejuri fashion, our Men’s collection was designed for everyday wear. With that in mind, we captured three New York-based guys—photographer and director Tyler Joe; creative producer, writer and editor Yale Breslin; and entrepreneur Kofi Gyekye—on the streets of Manhattan and asked them to give a little advice on how to style their new favorite pieces.
Our new collection is now available to pre-order before its official launch on October 5. Shop it now!
Find a staple to wear every day
Take it from Kofi—when it comes to jewelry, start simple and see what feels comfortable before layering it on.
“Find a staple to wear every day. The Round Box Chain Bracelet reminds me of the classic bracelets my uncles and grandparents would wear; it reminds me of their Swahili culture. I would also advise being open to wearing women’s jewelry as well. I tend to find whatever I like and feel comfortable with—gender-tailored jewellery is never an issue for me.”
Don't be afraid of jewelry
Consistency is Tyler’s holy grail: his personal style revolves around a uniform—but he loves a good accent piece.
“Don’t be afraid of jewelry. I didn’t know I wanted to wear jewelry until someone gave me my first piece and I said, ‘why not?’ After that I kept adding more. My favourite pieces are all the gold ones. They look great with my skin tone and they’re really understated, so I can wear them with everything.”
Keep it simple
Yale is all for keeping it classic. In fact, he can usually get dressed in under 60 seconds.
“I’m more the type of guy who throws a piece of jewelry on at the last minute before I walk out the door. It just adds to the mood. You can never go wrong with keeping it simple. I say no more than two pieces of jewelry at a time ... anything more than that can feel overboard.”
Here are three easy steps to figure out your bracelet size.
1. Put a string around your wrist to match the desired tightness or looseness of the bracelet.
2. Measure the string in inches on a measuring tape or ruler.
3. Choose the bracelet size that most closely corresponds with the string length (7’’, 7.5’’, or 8’’).
