Hip Hop Jewelry

bling.gifIf you buy a simple chain or ring, it is typically something that doesn't go out of style very quickly. Things change slowly over time. Different colors of gold become trendy, but for the most part, men's jewelry doesn't seem to be as dated as quickly as ladies jewelry.

One type of jewelry that has evolved over the past 20 years is Hip Hop Jewelry. I thought that it was something that would have come and gone as a fashion genre, but it is still going strong. It is not only going strong, but it is thriving. Gone are the days of clocks around necks. Now you see silver and stainless steel cuffs with rhinestones. There are watches with rhinestones or diamonds around the sides. On the more outrageous side are "grillz" which cover your teeth.

What is your opinion of Hip Hop jewelry? Do you think it is here to stay or will it fade into the sunset?
