Hundreds of years ago it was quite common for men to wear necklaces. It was not a fashion statement; it was a status statement; as was most male jewelery worn at that time. It was not until the recent era that jewelery became associated with fashion and therefore for a man to be concerned with fashion made him less then masculine. The times are changing once again however and more and more men are going back to wearing necklaces even if it is a fashion statement because nowdays it is OK for a man to be in touch with his stylish side.
Often dog tags are worn by men that have been in combat or are in the armed forces; as well they are often worn by ex military men. Dog tags are also now being worn by just about anyone. They even come in various metals and various styles with whatever you want engraved on them. Many people who are not in the military opt to leave them blank and do not have anything on them at all.
Another piece of neck jewellery often worn by men are religious necklaces. These are often crosses or stars of David and have always been the most popular necklace choice. Many men today wear these to show their belonging to that particular religion.
Whatever type of necklace you choose to wear you can be safe in the knowledge that it is now acceptable for men to wear these fashion pieces again. It is also easy to shop for mens necklaces online. You can easily find them through a Google search and many websites.
