The big 3 of mens Jewellery

mens omega watch

When men are looking to accessorise, its important that it is done tastefully and elegantly. Nothing looks worse than an overdone businessman, a try hard who thinks “the more gold I wear, the cooler I’ll look”

Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. There are 3 items that a man should always wear in the corporate world, and its so incredibly easy to pull off.

 

The Watch

The number 1 item that a guy should wear is the humble wrist watch. For years naysayers have been calling for the end of the wrist watch because a mobile phone will tell the time more accurately. However nothing completes the look of a well tailored suit like an elegant watch. A watch catches peoples eyes and captures their imagination. Watches are such a personal choice that its one way that men can express their personality so emphatically. Big and brash, or understated and classy – you can get an immediate insight to someones personality just by glancing at what’s on their wrist.

And you don’t have to pay thousands of dollars for a high performing watch either. Companies like Steinhart, Citizen, Tissot and even Seiko produce stunningly reliable and elegant watches. Heck you can even buy a Replica that most people can’t tell the difference. But if you buy a replica Rolex and drive a 20 year old commodore, people will call bullshit.

The Ring

Similar to a watch, a ring is a very personal item that a man can wear to express his personality. The great thing about rings are that they come in such a broad range of colours, materials and designs. Big, black and loaded with diamonds, or a simple Titanium wedding band, and everything in between. We find that there is such a wide range of products that people are interested in, and thats great because it shows guys are getting exactly what THEY want, not what the masses want.

The Tie Bar

The last item that every business man should wear every day is the tie bar. There isn’t a lot of worse fashion looks than a poorly done half windsor above a crooked tie. There’s no need for either. There are a million sites out there to help you tie your tie properly, and equally as many that you can buy a tie bar from. Tie bars come in pretty much any shape or size that you can imagine, and they do as advertised – keep your tie straight.

 

So it doesn’t take a heck of a lot to accessorise for your business day. Buying the above items could cost anything really. You could get a quality watch, ring and tie bar for under a thousand, or it could cost $50,000. But either way, nothing completes a look like a quality Watch, ring and tie bar..

What ring sizing system works best?

Sometimes customers ask us why we use the US sizing system, so here we explain why that is!

You’ve seen the different Australian bricks and mortar stores that use the Australian, or more accurately, the “British” sizing system. Why Australia uses this system is beyond the scope of this article but one thing is certain – its here to stay.

At ALPHA Rings, we don’t necessarily think that the British sizing system is as useful as the US sizing system. This becomes apparent quite clearly when men with large fingers try to get sized and their size goes beyond a US size 13.

Moving up or down the scale in US half sizes is very very simple. Going from a 13 to a 13.5 is a pretty simple thing to work out. But in the Australian sizing system, we go from a Z, to a Z2 and Z3 etc. It just doesn’t make much sense and its proved annoying for customers to try and work out. You can see this in our ring size guide here.

Couple that with the fact that most of our products come out of the USA, so we buy all of our products in US sizes.

If you do not know your ring size, we suggest that you go to a jeweller and ask if they can give you a size in both the British and the US size. If you get your exact US size, then you’ll always be able to convert that back to the British sizing system if you need to.

Necklaces and mens bracelets are also available in this collection. We have found that there are quite a few people out there that love the Black Ti, but want a slightly understated look. Using Silver or Gold inlays or cables can often bring out the personality of the ring too far. Black cable is a way to slightly tone down the image of the ring, giving a great textural contrast between the base metal and the cable, but subtle because the colours are common.
