Why Choose Onyx Jewellery for Men?

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but unless a man is purposefully going for that David Beckham/Kanye West metrosexual look then he might want to go for something a little manlier when it comes to choosing the gemstone in his jewellery. Luckily, when it comes to gemstones suited to the more masculine among us, there is a clear candidate that stands apart from all the others. That gemstone is the onyx.


Black Onyx

Onyx Stone Properties

The metaphysical properties that the ancients believed bestowed upon the wearer were numerous. The majority of beliefs held that the onyx would increase a man’s resistance to negative energies and help him focus his mind, enhancing memory retention and allowing him to pay more attention to detail. In this way the onyx can have many modern applications as all of the above are areas which we all need a little help in from time to time, be we big manly men, gentle women or something in between.

Physically, the onyx was said to inspire strength and aid in the recovery from poor health. And while modern medical advances mean we’d be foolish to forego that check-up at the doctor’s in favour of wearing black onyx jewellery, it’s interesting to note what tips and tricks the ancient civilisations have for us to try out and see what benefit they can have. Scientists and experts have long known of the power of the placebo effect, and it might well be the faith we put in such items as these onyx gemstones that inspires the positive mental attitude which helps us over comes physical ailments.

Of course, there’s a much simpler reason why black onyx jewellery and the like are still so popular with men everywhere, and that’s the fact that they just look really cool. They ooze swarthy sophistication and let us men utilise jewellery in a stylishly masculine way which dainty diamonds and other pretty precious stones just can’t match.

Men’s Jewellery – Hot or Not?

The onyx is the man’s gemstone and has been for a lot longer than you might imagine. Usually black in appearance when used in jewellery, onyx is a type of chalcedony created naturally by fine intergrowths of the minerals quartz and moganite, which often form beautiful streaks and patterns throughout the stones. It has been discovered all over the globe, though mostly in South American countries like Brazil and Uruguay, as well as in South Asian countries such as India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Interestingly, onyx begins being forged in the gas cavities of molten lava.

Though the black variety is the most popular, it’s not the most common type and often coloured onyx is manipulated to appear black for jewellery purposes. This process has been around since ancient times as the onyx in black form was highly valued by kings and high-born men. Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were especially taken with the onyx.

Its value stemmed not from its rarity in the earth or its natural beauty as is the case with many other precious stones, but from its many perceived abilities to help the wearer to either keep control of their emotions or prevent their passion from overtaking their senses. Wearing onyx rings or pendants was also believed to aid in wise decision making, as well as providing additional stamina and vigour which would help a man stand strong in the face of his enemies.
