Can Men Wear Pearls?

Without looking...well you know.

Yeah, many celebrity men and guys on TikTok are doing it. It’s all the rage right now.

Can you, yes. Should you, no. It's just begging for attention like any Ticktok or Instagram or self-promotion bullshit. Find your happiness from within.

Are you hot and young? .. lol Small pearls don't look that different from puka shells (which were supposedly becoming popular again?). Guys can also layer pearl necklaces with other necklaces, or pearls are just part of the necklace. Freshwater and black pearl designs might be more "masculine."

In the old West, outlaws who fancied all black ensembles very often topped off the look with a string of pearls about their neck. It is where the expression “pearls go best with basic black” originated.

Charles I wore a pearl earring in his left ear from the age of fifteen. He even wore an especially exquisite pearl earring to his execution. Sir Walter Raleigh wore pearl earrings in BOTH ears. However (as the article states), these men didn't represent the majority.

I can’t believe it took until R18 for the obvious response here. Gay men have been wearing them for years. I had a hot FB who asked me to give him one every time he came ovet.

The market price for pears has plummeted over the last 5 years. They are relatively cheap now. My boss bought his wife a 180,000 dollar string of very large pearls about 15 years ago. Long story short, when they got divorced and tried to sell them, Sotheby's said don't bother selling them. They would only offer about 40,000 for them because of some flood of pears in the market and some kind of monopoly was broken up, china flooding the market with them.

You should never, ever, ever buy jewels for investment purposes, unless they have a famous history (such as they were worn by a famous person). Otherwise they will lose value.

Yes. A nice wool bouclé, R27.

I don't own any, but I've always preferred the look of Baroque pearls. I'd love to have a silver ring set with a huge Baroque pearl.

I've got a strand of black pearls that I inherited from a rich aunt (she hoped I'd give them to my future wife, poor dear was blind) that I wear from time to time. I wore them as part of my uniform when I was Club Kid adjacent in the 90s.

Only for fake pearls, you know the cultured kind. Real pearls found in the wild are obscenely rare and expensive.

Wear what you fucking want to wear. The whole idea that something is too feminine or masculine is such contrived bullshit. If I wasn't old and had a bad ankle, I would wear heels in a heartbeat. They do wonders for the ass and legs.

Like a lot of these "gender bending" fashion trends, it only looks good in photos on young, hot, slim, tall men. In real life you're more likely to see them on pale, pudgy, young men working in low-paying service jobs who can't afford to live in the city they've just moved to.

Not if you are rich Dear. Yes, commoners like yourself who might think a one carat diamond ring is special will lose your shirt if you try to sell it. But you get into the 5 carat, and above, or stones that start at the 100,000 dollar range and above they not only hold their value, they appreciate because they are so rare at that size and quality.

Atlanta Braves ballplayer Joc Pederson started wearing pearls in September, with fans (male and female) following suit. Must have been good mojo as the Braves went on to win the World Series.
