Different necklaces for different tastesSilver necklaces can be dainty pieces or thicker chains that will not go unnoticed. Some will accessorize simpler, thinner necklaces with pendants. These can be whatever you want to add: coloured stones, anchors, rings, crosses, claws, dog tags, and wings. You'll want to keep the pendants meaningful and not oversized, so they don't overwhelm the look. Silver pendants with similar hues can also be mixed and worn together or by themselves.
Another common type of silver necklace for men is the simple chain. It can have different textures, and different feels. Some will feel lighter and more sleek, while others will feel heavier and sturdier. Chain link necklaces can come in a range of different weights. Some of them can have simple smooth links while other rope-like necklaces can be a little more elaborate and have a little more texture. Some might even bring other metal colours with darker finishes into the mix.
Pairing with the right outfitWhichever style of men's silver necklace you choose to wear for the day can balance your look. If your outfit is simple and classic, such as a chambray shirt and pants, a bolder statement piece can make a nice complement. On the other hand, if your outfit consists of more than three pieces, keep jewelry toned down and make sure it's simple so it balances out to complete and not compete with your ensemble.
Semi-formal looksA simple way to accessorize your semi-formal or smart casual look is to add an appropriate simple necklace or bracelet. While men's necklaces are often correlated to casual looks, a stylish silver item can dress up a more formal outfit, as long as it's not a suit and tie, and combine with the rest of your attire, making that heirloom silver watch stand out.
Wearing more than one itemOnce you're confident when wearing a single item around your neck, you'll probably want to pair it up with another similar-coloured metallic necklace. You might want to keep the strands relatively thin, though. Over-accessorizing your neck can be a mistake, especially when pairing up thicker chains or going overboard with the number of pendants hanging from your neck. Don't go over the top. Keep it classy and let it reflect your personality.
Another great way to throw another item into your look is to implement a great watch or a ring. Surely you'll be able to find the appropriate item that speaks to you in the items displayed above.
