- 18 Aug 2022
Fall weather is almost here, which means colder weather and cozy layers. Sweaters and jackets finally come back out of the closet. Dress up your blazer and jeans with chic men’s pendants. Whether you are off to work or on a date, jewelry elevates any ensemble. Layer a gold-plated pendant over a turtleneck and jeans for a comfortable date night look. Wear a silver pendant to dress up a black suit. Adding a necklace to your fall look can help so off your unique sense of style. A pendant immediately draws someone’s eye, so why not use your charm to make a statement? Use these 12 ideas to find the ideal symbol to suit your fall look and display your personality.
1. Classic Cross
A cross, or crucifix, has always been a symbol of perseverance and destiny. Christians have worn these pendants for hundreds of years as a reminder of Christ's sacrifices to save humanity. Keep it subtle by choosing a round pendant with a cross in the corner or wearing a crucifix. Whatever you choose, a cross symbolizes that you have the strength to go the distance.
Wings symbolize the power of flight and capture the essence of freedom. Wings also represent our angels or spirit guides. Let your necklace remind you that you are never alone. Remind yourself that you are in control of your future. Trust that the universe has your back, and let yourself soar.
Show off your thirst or adventure with a stylish compass pendant. There is so much out there to explore. Will your next journey take you north, west, east, or south? A compass reminds you that you’re in control of where you are and where you’re going.
4. Longitude and Latitude
Maybe there is a particular place you’ve visited on your travels that is important to you. Is it the place you grew up? The city you met your partner? The road on which you found yourself? Have that particular location engraved onto a pendant necklace. That way, you’ll always have a little reminder of where you came from as you reach for your goals.
Traditionally men have worn patron saints as charms on necklaces for hundreds of years. Protect your travels by wearing Saint Christopher around your neck. Saint Michel is the patron saint of the military and police offers. Wear his pendant to show you care about protecting your loved ones and community.
6. Star of David
Even if you aren’t Catholic or Christian, you can still show off your faith with men’s pendants. In antiquity, it was believed this shape warded one from evil. It was adopted in the 17th century by the Jewish community of Prague. Now, the Star of David has become a symbol of Jewish identity.
Star signs are very in this season. Show off your Taurus energy or your Virgo charm. This subtle nod to your astrological sign will add a touch of flair to any ensemble. Maybe you put more faith in what’s written in the stars.
8. North Star
No matter where you are in the world, you can always spot the north star. Wearing a north start pendant shows the world that you are constant, calm, and confident. You know who you are. It’s a reminder that you are trustworthy and reliable.
Give your look an edge in a contemporary dagger pendant, a symbol of courage and bravery. No matter who or what comes your way, you can hold your head high and defend yourself. Stand up for what you believe in. Use your jewelry to help you feel like the warrior you are.
Roses have long been a symbol of love, beauty, and passion. A rose pendant shows your zest for life. Like a rose, life is ephemeral. Any day could be your last. Let your rose necklace remind you to be present. Chase your passion in every passing moment.
11. A Quirky Twist on Mythology
A fun play on classic mythology can display your witty personality. Wear the symbol of Hades, god of the underworld, to exhibit your devil may care attitude. Cupid is a symbol of love, but give him a modern twist by having him hold a machine gun rather than a bow and arrow.
12. Celebrate Art and Science
A pendant featuring Davinci’s Vitruvian man celebrates the human form. Wear it as a reminder of how capable you are. Honor the golden ratio with a charm of the Fibonacci sequence, or the golden rectangle, an example of Sacred Geometry. This aesthetically pleasing mathematical symbol is used in financial market analysis, data algorithms, art, and architecture.
