Mens Jewelry Buying Guide
Stylish men’s jewellery can be difficult to find, luckily Zapals has a wide selection of men’s jewellery in a range of metals and styles. So whether you are buying a gift for yourself or a gift for someone special there is bound to something for you. Male jewellery is a growing trend amongst fashion-forward young men that understand the importance of accessorising. The days of men wearing jewellery being scoffed at are gone with young men taking the charge.

Considering the stigma that previously surrounded men’s jewellery, it can be quite intimidating trying the popular trend. However, the best thing to do in this situation is ease yourself into it and find a style that suits you. When choosing jewellery it should reflect your personality and lifestyle but keep in mind that this can take trial and error. This mentality is particularly important for signature jewellery, jewellery that you intend to wear everyday. However, if it is jewellery that you intend to change based on your clothing choices, there is more room for experimentation.
One of the most popular jewellery items that men are increasingly purchasing are rings, especially in unique designs. Zapals has a selection of stainless steel, titanium and sterling silver plated rings ranging from simple smooth metal to ornate skulls and gemstones. Rings can be worn stacked on top of each other for a rugged look, a similar effect can be achieved through various rings on each hand. To achieve a more classic look it is best to wear no more than one ring per hand.
This principle when shopping for rings can be used for other jewellery such as necklaces and bracelets; less layering allows a simpler look whilst layered jewellery exudes casual ruggedness.
Womens Jewelry Buying Guide
For some women, jewellery is a well-thought investment to be worn regularly for long periods of time. When shopping for investment jewellery the two most important factors to consider are style and material. Investment jewellery should generally be timeless pieces that will withstand seasonal trends or they should be pieces that connect directly with your personal style. This is because investment jewellery is purchased with the intention of being worn repeatedly, with various outfits, styles and seasons. This cannot be done if your investment jewellery is a passing trend or does not suit your personal style, your new ring could sit in your jewellery box collecting dust instead.

Material is also a factor to consider as different metals suit different lifestyles and clothing styles. For example, metals such as sterling silver and gold are commonly used for investment jewellery, as they are durable, which is suitable for daily wear. Although precious metals such as gold and silver require occasional cleaning and polishing to maintain their shine, ultimately they will provide better cost-per-wear. Generally, the more affordable option between the two materials is silver, however, gold offers a wider range of colours such as yellow, white or rose gold. Rose gold in particular has become extremely popular for its pinkish finish.
Jewellery doesn’t always have to be an investment though, it can be a way to experiment with different styles through a necklace or pair of earrings. You can change an entire outfit or update your look without even having to buy any clothes with a great statement piece of jewellery.
Watches Buying Guide
A watch is a classic piece of jewellery that should be a staple in anyone’s wardrobe, especially for a day-to-day look. Because a watch can be an integral aspect of a daily outfit, it is important that you find a watch to suit your lifestyle or different aspects of your lifestyle. Not only will this ensure that your watch will last longer because it is appropriate for your lifestyle but it will suit your overall style better as well.
What You Need to Buy?
Consider your lifestyle when deciding what staple watch to purchase. For example, are you outdoors a lot? Do you spend most of your time sitting at a desk? Or maybe your job is extremely active? All of these factors influence what type of staple piece you should purchase; however, it’s a good idea to have watches to suit different occasions for versatility.
For those that live particularly active or outdoor lifestyles are best suited for watches that are both weatherproof and waterproof. Although it is not advisable metal watches can be worn outdoors however they should be heavy-duty. Leather watches should be avoided. This is because water and weather exposure can damage leather bands.
For people that have mostly indoor lifestyles that are not particularly active on a regular basis, any watch is suitable. Whether it is a simple ceramic, fabric, metal or leather your watch can add a bit of colour or sparkle to your outfit. However, keep in mind that more formal events call for simple leather or metal watches that are not too colourful or patterned.
Having a selection of formal, causal and weatherproof watches is a great option to ensure that you have a watch for every occasion and everyday regardless of whether you’re going hiking or to a business meeting.
