Ever since the 80’s hip hop culture has promoted large, flashy jewelry with lots of diamonds (Ice)… making these expensive pieces the objects of our affection.

Though wearing lots of expensive accessories is still looked at as a level of achievement, style has provided room in modern culture for simplicity and modesty regarding accessories and jewelry.

Now its cool to wear 1 watch or bracelet with a thin short golden chain instead of 2 50 inch gaudy diamond encrusted chains, with an iced out watch and several gold bracelets.

Next time your getting ready try a simple approach to your jewelry allowing the man himself or woman to shine as the center piece.
