Men’s jewelry is in right now — though really, it’s hard to say that it ever went out of style. Classic looks, such as the Miami Cuban link chain, are hotter than ever. And some celebrities have been pushing the style even further: Rapper A$AP Rocky and pop singer Justin Bieber have both been spotted wearing pearls, while online personality Jake Paul regularly wears flashy, diamond-loaded jewelry around his neck.
Of course, many of the men’s jewelry looks that celebrities wear are excessively expensive — showing off is usually the point. But you don’t need to spend four figures on a pearl necklace, five figures on a men’s gold chain or six figures on a gold diamond choker to look just as stylish.
Here are 10 pieces of men’s jewelry, from Justin Bieber’s pearls to NBA team pendants, that are sure to get you noticed, whether you’re headed to the gym, going out, or just staying in to post pictures on Instagram.
