What’s Selling in Stores: Men’s Jewelry—the L.A. Edition!

We asked four retailers in Los Angeles—the Left Coast’s undisputed hotbed of style—to share their best-selling piece (or pieces) of mens jewelry this week.

Roseark anchor bracelet, $36

Roseark, Los Angeles. Various private label pieces originally designed for women, prices vary. “With our clientele, we have been able to explore the traditional boundaries of what is considered men’s jewelry,” says co-owner Kathy Rose. “Many pieces that may not have been designed for a man can find new life in that market. Examples are our Roseark anchor bracelets, Kathy Rose Jewelry Rhino Cuffs, and Roseark House Sideways Cross Necklaces. All are great sellers for both men and women.” 

 

Palladium ring from June Designs, $370

Sarah Leonard Fine Jewelers, Los Angeles. Alternative metal wedding bands, starting at $100. “Men’s wedding bands are having more of a renaissance because of new materials being out there,” says store president David Friedman. “Men are sometimes very much not into jewelry, and when they find exotic metals in wedding bands, they think that these are very cool options. So, while the real affluent clientele are still opting for more expensive platinum and/or diamond wedding bands, a lot of the bread-and-butter market…love some of these new alternative metals.”

 

Martin Katz cufflinks, price upon request

Martin Katz, Los Angeles. Private label cufflinks, prices vary. “Our cufflinks have always been a popular seller for us,” says owner and designer Martin Katz. “Since men are limited in jewelry options, it’s fun for them to spruce up an outfit with a little bling.”

 

 

LFrank leather-and-gold-bead necklace, $1,600

LFrank, Venice, Calif. Beaded leather necklaces, starting at $1,000. “I’m known for making necklaces with leather cords that have beads,” says owner and designer Liseanne Frankfurt. “And, on a man, it’s a sexy sort of surfer look.”
