The Mentalist style combines a tailored elegance with a witty, free-spirited 1970’s rocker attitude. Imagine the clean structure of an English gentleman--heavy with steampunk references--and fuse that look with a rock revival edge for a clean and detailed jewelry style.

This trend relies heavily on deep colors, such as mocha, russet, charcoal and burgundy with classic white or ivory accents. Reference movies such as The Illusionist, The Time Machine, Sherlock Holmes and The Prestige for sentimental steampunk details and lighting inspirations.

Let the history in aged metals and distressed ''workman'' leathers inspire new jewelry lines. Clever details and dominant symbols such as gears, riveted leather straps, buckles, crescent shapes, aged metal coins and chain and vintage military-style medallions are key. The most common men's accessories include wallet chains, vest and watch fobs, symbolic pendants, wide cuff bracelets and cufflinks.

Colors: Deep colors of mocha, russet, charcoal, raven and burgundy with accents of white or ivory.
