I've always just worn a watch, but after browsing this year's Christmas catalog I feel temped to buy. What is your opinion on men's jewelry? Is it ok to wear? Thanks for your input.

No jewelry for me.  no  A nice wristwatch is all I'll accept. On a guy, any ornament looks awkward IMO.

Nope. A man should not wear any sort of jewellery whatsoever. If he has to, maybe a wedding ring, but absolutely nothing else.

Who say's?

I think people should just be allowed to wear what they want to wear, if they want to wear a silver bracelet thing like shown above then they should be able to...

I only wear a wristwatch though..

I don't think there's anything gay about it - so long as you're wearing something which is masculine and not blatantly feminine. I don't myself, however a lot of men wear stud earrings and various various piercings, I do though have various bracelets/pendants which I wear.

Personal choice however.


It's not "gay" to wear jewelry. That's assinine.

I do wonder, occasionally, about the sanity of the meatheads putting multiple holes in the bodies so they can install various and sundry types of "body jewelry" . . .  crazy  {where's the emoticon for ridiculous?}

This is just the way it should be! No more then 1 ring other then a wedding band, any more at it looks too pimp'ish in my eyes.

Woman's opinion here:

I don't find it attractive or sexy when men wear any jewelry other than a wedding band, a watch, and MAYBE a class ring.

My girlfriends feel the same way,

Sorry.

Pardon me while I cringe....

Other than a watch, I really don't wear much jewelry. I've got an Eagle Scout ring I bought years back that I don't wear because some days it fits, other days it doesn't (I can't get it resized because of the material it is made of). I've also got a silver chain with an Eagle Scout charm on it.

I'll admit my jewelry thing is cuff links. I've got about 10 sets of cuff links I've amassed over the last 10-12 years. I've only ever bought one set of them (A pair that look like roulette wheels and have a little metal ball in them which I bought earlier this year.), the rest were given to me. About 12 years back, I was working for a company that did casino themed parties for companies and clubs and the uniform was black pants, a tuxedo shirt and black tie. My friend who got me the job gave me my first set of cuff links and a set of tuxedo studs (Not everyone who worked for the company wore the studs or even cuff links, choosing instead to use the buttons already on the shirt.). A few years later, I got my first dress shirt with French cuffs and my grandfather gave me a number of old cuff links he had.

I don't think there is a problem with men wearing jewellery, its quite common in some ethnicity's. Wearing a chain, ring and or bracelet are quite common.

I wear a ring (not a marriage ring) and a chain.

What about teenaged/college-aged guys who wear hemp necklaces (I'm not one of them)?


Personally, I normally wear nothing, unless it's a fraternity pin (which is referred to as a jewel(s), never as jewelry) or studs and cufflinks with my tux. I've never had the habit of wearing a watch.

And no real man in American society has pierced ears. Period.

No jewelery for me. I just don't like the way it looks on my body.

And I think the most asinine piece of jewelery known to man kind is one of these...

Is it ok to wear?

You shouldn't be worried about what others would think. Jewelry is really just about making it work. Your sexuality and gender are not the determining factors here. Some people with talent and a good eye for fashion can pull it off. Most people can't. I think you should be optimistic about it and give it a shot irrespective of what anybody else would think. You know you want to do it, that's why you made this thread in the first place.

Same here! I wear my class ring from Millersville University of PA on my right ring finger and a wrist watch. I don't wear a wedding band yet, for obvious reasons, but in about 2 years I will be  Smile

Body Piercing on ANYONE, not just met, is just wrong! Even if I wasn't a diabetic I would still say that is just wrong! Ears, like every other normal person is fine, but nipples, naval, lip, tongue, nose???  vomit 

Although, I really should be used to things puncturing my skin, I've been doing it for over 23 years now... It's been 23 since last week...

I actually know someone who had this done, apparently it doesn't hurt at all - so long as it's done correctly. Otherwise they can pull out... which it not nice thinking about!  Embarrassment

No, that doesn't bother me in the slightest. The only reservation I have is that it does look a bit daft on someone who is 50-plus years old, and who looks it too. But live and let live.

Me: wristwatch and 'wedding'/friendship ring.

I wear a watch, no rings, I wear a necklace from my religion, a cross, usually when I travel just as a religious thing for protection type of thing.

If I get married, I'll wear that also.

Otherwise I see no reason to wear anything else, maybe another ring just to have on the other hand.
