A black rubber necklace with a silver or stainless steel clasp is ideal for men who don't want a formal look. A rubber necklace fits around your neck like a loose choker. It is stylish and can be used with casual or professional clothes. Although it can be worn alone, it is best paired with a pendant.

Chain Necklace

Men who want to wear chain necklaces may have a hard time choosing the right one because there are so many options. The chain can be made of stainless steel, silver or gold. Styles include the cable chain and snake chain. The cable chain is also known as the standard chain necklace because the chains used are simple and oval in shape. This is great for a traditional and classic look. On the other hand, the snake chain has an urban appeal and is made of metal formed in a single strand to resemble a snake. This necklace is ideal for someone who wants a non-traditional look.

Surfer necklaces are made of various materials. Some surfer necklaces use good quality leather or braided hemp. The necklace has an earthy feel to it and often has a meaning to its wearer. This type of necklace looks better with a pendant such as a shell, shark's tooth and other natural materials. Other materials used to make this necklace are puka shells or wooden beads. This type of necklace is perfect for surfers or guys with a laid-back character. This is an ideal necklace for a man who loves nature and going to the beach.

Ethnic Necklace

Ethnic necklaces have ethnic influences. It can be made of any material such as twine, cord or leather, but the pendant is what makes it stand out. There are many ethnic or tribal influences to choose from, such as a Maori-inspired pendant, which is an oval wooden pendant hand-painted with ethnic patterns. Some necklaces are fair trade, meaning all materials used for the necklace are sourced from developing countries, which in effect helps disadvantaged people from those areas. Aside from being fashionable, purchasing fair trade necklaces will promote good ethics and will show you care.
