Types Of Jewelry For Men

Watches and cufflinks

Watches are worn by all and so make a perfect option for a gift. If you want to buy one for yourself, a silver watch can be a great choice. There are a number of formal silver watches that can give the perfect look for any occasion. Whatever your style, there’s one that suits every individual.

For those who dress formally at work, silver cufflinks also make a good gift choice. It gives an excellent look and goes with almost all colors of formal shirts and suits. In cufflinks too, you have ones which are simple that can be used for daily office wear. If you are dressing for a more formal occasion like a wedding or formal dinner parties, an ornate cufflink can be a good choice.

When choosing a gift for a man, it is important to know whether he uses silver jewellery or not. This will help you to avoid making any purchase that is not useful to the receiver of the gift. The next thing would be to determine whether the individual prefers fancy mens jewellery or just the simple types. You can then buy genuine silver jewellery online or from retail stores.…

Clarks Desert Boots

Clark first introduced the Desert Boot for sale in 1949, basing them on the form of chukka boot worn by British forces in the deserts of North Africa in World War II. This particular form of the chukka boot usually has a crepe sole with a suede upper (though they come in dozens of different leather and suede uppers now), themselves based on South African shoes called Veldskoen. Since then, the humble desert boot has become a staple of men’s style; jeans and desert boots make an iconic pair.

The desert boot has a very simple and utilitarian look, which makes them versatile and enduring. I’ve owned several pairs of desert boots over the years, from the classic beeswax leather to brown suede. They’re comfortable and cool and stylish all at once. They make an excellent shoe to be thrown on with any outfit, especially for a guy who prefers a more casual but still neat appearance. Essentially an all-purpose shoe, they can be worn with jeans, chinos and even suits. I’ve seen them worn with everything from white linen to dark navy suits (the latter pairing of which is more fashion-forward). I personally avoid wearing anything but dress shoes …

Between Real and Fake Diamonds

Ask for a certificate

If a piece is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, it is very likely the real deal. You should review the certificate carefully to determine the credibility of the issuing authority. Certificates are issued by various authorities and independent appraisers. Ensure the certificate is issued by a reputable organization such as the American Society of Appraisers.

Fog test

Breath on the surface of stone with your mouth and see if fogs up. Since diamonds are very good conductors the moisture clears up almost instantaneously. Other stones such as quartz, glass and zirconium stay hazed for quite a few moments. Moissanite passes this test quite convincingly so you may have to go a step further and perform a full thermal conductivity to differentiate it from real diamond.

Examine the facets

Diamonds can be cut more precisely than CZ and other simulates. If you examine the edges between the facets of a real diamond with a magnifying glass, they should be sharp and crispy. The lines on fake diamonds are usually rounded and have abrasions and dents.

Light test

The shadow cast by a stone can also help you differentiate between a real and a fake diamond. The …

UV Gel Nail Polishes

Pros

  • Long-lasting – A major benefit of this polish is the ability to last a lot longer than the alternatives. Once applied, the polish has the potential to last for a period of three to four weeks. Most other types such as acrylic based polished can start to appear worn over a period of one week.
  • Natural look – This type of polish gives a high-quality finish and appears with no scratches or dents. Plus, it has a finish that looks a lot more natural looking than the acrylics.
  • Easy to use – The process of applying UV gel nail polish is very easy. The UV gel is applied to the prepared nails to give a great base for the polish. It should be given enough time to fully dry with the help of an LED lamp or UV lamp. Once the first coat is dry, it is possible to apply the actual polish which takes a couple of minutes to dry. A second layer of polish can be applied to give the brighter shine and longer durability.

Style Tricks for Festival Season

My favourite thing about this season is that you do not necessarily have to buy new bits to get your outfits together. Start by getting all your summer clothes together and working out if you have the key pieces such as jean shorts and t-shirts. Printed t-shirts, tie-dye, crochet crops all are welcome and get creative with what you decide to pair them with. Dig out all your statement jewellery. Chunky necklaces, oversized rings and feathered accessories are all perfect. Use this as opportunity to play dress up and create outfits that you may not usually be able to wear in your everyday life.

2015 has brought back a lot of 70’s fashion influence so don’t run away screaming, embrace it and get funky. Patterned blouses, fringe detailing and round lensed sunglasses are a huge win. If you’re lucky enough to be festivalling somewhere hot and exotic then you will not need to worry about jackets and outerwear however, if you’re staying in the U.K then jackets and waterproofs may need to be considered in your out-fit planning. Suede tassle detailed jackets are the IT thing this season but not massively practical, if you do get stuck in a downpour …

Full Lace Versus Lace Front Wigs

Full Lace

A full lace wig has a base that is made entirely of lace material and because of this it is generally more expensive than others. That said, one can do plenty of hairstyles including a pony tail, full braids and glamorous up-dos. As the material is made up of sheer lace, it is also comfortable to the scalp and recommended for those with sensitive scalps. It is also lightweight yet durable and offers the wearer a more natural look than most wigs. One might find a cheaper full lace wig depending on the hair type that was used which can be either synthetic or natural human hair.

Lace Front

Lace front wigs on the other hand are more common as these make use of laces on the front only and other materials for the remaining parts. As lace is used on the front area, it looks more natural in front and wearers can part their hair without fearing that the base will show. One benefit with wearing this type is that it is more durable and less prone to ripping or tearing. Another pro is the fact that it is cheaper compared to full lace types. Some lace …
