“I think a lot of people are starting to open their eyes to what accessories like jewelry can do to an outfit, perhaps not least to style,” says Elise Alexandra Gulbrandsen.
A stylist and journalist at VG, she has noticed that jewelry and rings are becoming part of the everyday look of an increasing number of men.
Gulbrandsen believes that many people have gained a sense of the personal touch that jewelry gives.
She also believes that international fashion icons have helped give the man on the street a new perspective on jewelry as an accessory.
Fashion trends like Harry Styles have helped show that jewelry for men is no longer reserved for cufflinks and tie pins.
The interest in bling can also be seen in the largest chains of goldsmiths in the country.
– Over the past three years, sales of men’s jewelry and rings in our stores and online shopping have doubled, Björklund’s Marketing Director Vibeki Holan tells NRK.

It’s time to stay
Back at the Kristiansand jeweler, Christopher Espinosa Garrido is still looking for earrings. In addition, he found himself some rings that he would be tempting to buy.
At home, Garrido has at least 20 episodes. It is estimated that he spent more than 20,000 crowns on the jewelry collection.

Fashion expert Elise Alexandra Gulbrandsen thinks this trend is here to stay.
“I think we’re ready to wear a little more after two years of the pandemic, and that we’ll be there for a while,” she says, adding:
And I think jewelry will be a natural part of the way we decorate ourselves in the future.
