Men - What Jewelry Do You Wear?

Rings, bracelets, neck chains?

How often do you mix and match your Jewelry?

Rolex and a nipple ring.

I think jewelry on men is not attractive. Rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings—this stuff is for women.

Seeing as how I'm no longer in high school, I don't wear jewelry. I don't even wear a watch.

2 rings and a watch.

Diamond studs in ears + nose ring. I'll turning 37 in a few months. Am I too old for this? I also have a tongue stud I've had since '97.

A watch. That is pretty much it. I might occasionally wear a neck chain or a bracelet, but that is rare. I just don't like wearing jewelry.

And, I have no opinion if another guy wants to wear it. To me, some guys, when they wear jewelry, can look hot, others not. But, whatever people want to do.

by Anonymousreply 1404/07/2012

Sometimes a nice watch. I have a couple.

I wear them as jewelry or simply an accessory, not a time piece. People will ask,"why do you need a watch when you can just look at your phone?"

by Anonymousreply 1504/07/2012

I'm really over earrings in men, 1 ear, both ears, doesn't matter. It doesn't really flatter most men.

And it's tragic after 40. Middle-aged men, please lose your earrings. It smacks of desperation.

I like bracelets on men. It makes men's arms look more sexier. I don't know why, just hard to it a fedish, I guess.

Btw, I love the rainbow and purple bracelets that AI's Phillip Phillips wears on his sexy arms.

So you guys who wear all this jewelry, do you wear makeup too? Do you curtsey or bow. Do you stand or sit in the washroom? Do you expect other guys to hold doors open for you? Do you get grouchy about every 30 days?

I'm over 40 and wear earrings. If I was trying for the hot daddy look I'd give my jewelry away but it's not going to happen. I'm an aging twink and the older I get the more I embrace being a desperate, tragic, hot mess.

by Anonymousreply 2404/07/2012

Yes, I do, R22. I wear fake tanner. L'Oreal Sublime Bronze. I'm 58, and the tanner makes me look 19. I also get confused for 19 all the time too. I don't curtsy when people ask me what high school I go to, but I think I will start. I also stand when I pee, and I wipe sitting down - I use wet-wipes. I love when guys hold the door for me. They do it a lot. I am never grouchy.

An "aging twink" is in his late 20s. You are well into the aging queen years.

by Anonymousreply 2604/07/2012

Anything more than a watch and a simple, symbolic ring is overdoing it. And if they're gold, even these modest embellishments are too much.

Gold, as well as bracelets and necklaces of any material are all terribly, terribly tacky.

Do reading glasses on a chain around my neck count as jewellery?

by Anonymousreply 3604/07/2012

I never wear jewelry, though I have a lot of nice pieces.

I garden and do carpentry and work with cement, and my hands show it. Cuts, scrapes, callouses, and so on.

So rings just draw attention to my rough-looking hands and are likely to get banged up when I'm working.

And I never liked watches, but after my partner died in 1989, I wore his watch until I got my first cell phone nearly 15 years ago.

And yet, even now I will buy a ring if it's really beautiful and it fits. The last one I bought is carnelian and gold, and it's gorgeous. I put it on from time to time, but within a few minutes I always want to take it off.

LMAO. R22 has the jewelry wearers pegged.

In the early 80s my cousin rocked a gold chain with a krugerrand. He had the whole black irish thing going - with a hockey player's ass.

Flash forward to my first good paying job. My mind kept going back to that necklace. I bought myself a thick manly man 18k gold necklace from Tiffany's.

I looked like a truck stop whore.

I've always been afraid of getting my ears pierced because I don't want Buddha ears.

I can commit to clothing - but only for a day at a time. Jewelry is too much to ask.

I'll sometimes wear a necklace (small pendant on a leather cord, not a chain). Other than that, I just don't wear jewelry.

I have a lot of cufflinks, which I rarely have occasion to wear. I am considering getting my wrists pierced.

My antepenultimate boyfriend gave me a gold bracelet. I jammed it so far up my arm to keep it from being visible under my shirts that the impression made on my skin lasted for five days after we broke up. I would have been appalled by it anyway, but the links reminded me of little squished swaztikas.

I wear a jeweled scrotum cinch that clips on to my cock ring which is held up by my shoulder and chest suspenders to keep my nuts above water. It's seldom seen in all its engineered glory, but some day someone might see it if they piss me off enough.

by Anonymousreply 6104/08/2012

By chance we got titanium rings for our wedding, which was great beause I have metal allerigies.

I got a Citizens Eco watch for my 50th, but it stopped working a few months past its 5 year warranty. Anyway they lied because the clasp wasn't titanium and made me break out.

by Anonymousreply 6204/08/2012

None. Other than a watch, I dislike jewelry on men. In fact, should my partner and I decide to get married (we've been together a really long time) I don't envision us wearing rings.

by Anonymousreply 6304/08/2012

A watch.

I wore my dads class ring for a few months after he died last year. I'll wear it occasionally but I don't like jewelry on men in general. It usually looks cheap.

by Anonymousreply 6404/08/2012

I don't like wearing jewelry. I have a few pieces that have been given to me, but I'd have to hunt the stuff down if I needed it. I've always thought people who wear jewelry reveal only negative information about themselves. I think I would be more comfortable carrying a sign stating, "I need attention" than to wear baubles to attract attention.

I saw a German in a London saina wearing a gold waist chain. I thought I'd died & gone to heaven. It was so 1970s jetset. One of the hottest men I've ever seen was a polish carpenter with waist length silky hair and big gold wire hoop earrings. He looked like a young muscular Candice Bergen.

I love stretched Easter Island lobes. Like on that sexy bearded London milliner whatshisname... remind me DL.

Hmmm I think on this evidence Americans are very conservative. Lots of the UK gays wear jewellery, not just the young ones. Gold chains look chavvy but on a muscle guy can be alright. Personally I prefer silver and the cheaper alternatives like pewter and stainless steel. I have a few bits and bobs, none of it is very expensive apart from the ring I got for my 30th from my folks.

It's titanium with a solitary diamond. Is looking a bit scratched now in places, but I still love it.

I wish I'd got my ears pierced sometimes, or one of them. But at 34 it's too late to start rocking that look. Earrings went out of fashion for men but I think it's back now with the young mod set (seriously, even the chavs are dressing smart atm).

Ultimately, we get one go around on the Earth so life's a bit too short to worry about what other people might think, and therefore one should dress for oneself, but hopefully with taste. Individuality doesn't have to mean tack.

I wear a gold ankle bracelet over my black business socks that attracts more attention than you might guess.

I also wear a hip hugging vintage gold chain around my waist under my clothes. It's something I've seen in porn films of the '70s, so I've updated the look for the millennium.

Hate jewelry - don't like anything on me, mostly because I'd end up playing with it all day. Also because of the fact that I hate feeling like I'm being restricted in some way. And with respect to rings, I know a lady who just about pulled the skin off her finger entirely because she got her ring hooked on a dumpster - after seeing that, there's no way I'd ever put on a ring.

I agree. You never see a woman buying a man jewelry on a TV commercial. Or a man buying jewelry for himself, for that matter.

Belly button ring (gets a lot of attention in gym sauna)

Three holes in right ear and four in left, with simple silver studs.

Large crucifix necklace I never take off, even at the gym.

I love jewelry. Especially understated family pieces. I wear my dead dad's wedding ring (Hell, i'm not getting married, that finger's free), a small gold signet ring next to it and a claddagh on my middle finger right hand. My biggest problem is what watch to wear...a Rolex or a Cartier. Mostly I just go with my Ball railroad watch.
