  • Mens Jewlery

    i am a hetrosexual male who is absolutly NOT a metrosexual. however i have always had a good eye for color and style of jewlery(and i even have 2 ex-girlfriends who call me about jewlery...takes all kinds)
    i like to wear a ing on my right ring finger, i currently have an amethyst 14k setting, a garnet (deep powerful red vvs clarity) in 14k, classic jade from my grandfather in 14k, 2 black opal in 14k and 18k highly red with 2 rubies on the side and one more blue green in rose gold(18k), a nice pigion blood star ruby in 14k with good astarism, and a nice 22k set burmese ruby (heated) heavy inclutions but nice.
    i like to switch off and enjoy the feeling of a ring but it seems to get odd reactions for a 24 year old male to wear good jewls

    what do you guys think?

    I like seeing nice jewelry on guys, whether it's rings, chains even some earrings. You're right that you're young to be wearing such nice stuff but as long as it's tasteful, I'm all in favor. I also like your choice of gemstones and higher karat gold.

    Are there rings that you get more reactions on than others? I would guess that the opal and amethyst might surprise people because they're not terribly common. My ex chose amethyst for his wedding ring and he got some comments on the unusualness of that.

      i have always had a thing for good rich deep purple, as well as rich deep powerful red. yes the amethyst does get more comments (then again it is my birthstone) guys seem not to know what to say when they say something women seem to compliment it much more, the opals do raise eyebrows quite a bit but everynow and agian someone who knows what they are looking at says something and that is always a pleasure (remind me to post pics at some point, of coure i hve to take pics first)

        Mmm...I adore the deep zambian amethyst and deep reds secondarily. Had quite a collection of rings with rich gems until I got robbed a couple of years ago. Now everybody's discovered the deep amethysts and the price has skyrocketed.

        I say wear what you like. Many older guys have really nice rings and there are fads that guys follow, too (remember nugget rings?). It's nice that you had the sense to start earlier and the taste to wear quality.

          Well, according to Rita Rudner you're half way to being a good candidate for marriage. (She says men who wear earings are the best marriage prospects. They've bought jewlery and they've experienced pain. ) j

          I don't wear the stuff myself, not even a watch. Every damned appliance I own has a digital clock built in. So do all my phones and computers at work and at home. I've got a time display on my cell phone. Watches? We don't need no steenking watches. I do wear a plain sliver cross that one of my aunts bought for me when we were in Florence many years ago. (Crucifixes tend to catch on things.) But I wear that under my t-shirt, so nobody sees it - in public, anyway.

          When I had jobs that required more formal dress than my current one, I used to wear collar pins and tie chains and they're in the back of a drawer somewhere along with some cuff-links, but that's about it.

            I wear a gold watch on my left wrist and a gold ring on my right ring finger. Chains bother me. A watch and a ring is enough; you don't want so much jewelry that it becomes overkill. You could wind up looking like Al Davis.
            Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

              I really hate bling.

              If I were to wear jewelry, such as rings, it'd be gothic.

                With the exception of my watch, all the jewelry I wear is strictly of the statement variety ... a small celtic-style cross on a leather cord as a statement of my faith and a beaded wristband with red ribbon motif for HIV/AIDS awareness (hand made by HIV+ women who have formed a workers co-operative in Nairobi).

                Oh ... and my wedding ring, which is a knotwork pattern of three colours of gold (exactly the same as my wife's - I was obviously an old romantic at some point).

                  I just wear a watch and when I need to go a little more formal, I'll wear cufflinks. My wife and I agreed that I wouldn't wear a ring so no wedding band for me.

                    I figured you were born in February (as is my wife), but yeah, amethyst would probably draw the most odd looks from other men. As for "manly" jewely, you're looking mostly at bulky, oversized solid gold, or it can be accented with small diamonds, or onyx (black, very masculine). Usually the designs are very linear; squared rings, diagonal or horizontal lines, etc.

                    For color, a favorite of mine is the blue star saphire, although I don't have one myself, I just wear a battered old wedding band.

                    Still, bottom line: If it makes you happy, go with it. Just get yourself a hot girlfriend and the other guys will wonder what they're doing wrong.

                      From Grand Theft Auto: Vice City-
                      Hello, I am Fernando Martinez. I think by now you know I am an emotional kind of guy. People stop me in the street and say "Fernando what the hell is wrong with me? Silk-shirt, hairy chest, enough aftershave to drown a household pet, but I still cannot get a woman."

                      And I tell them, "You are an ignorant fool. Without the symbol of power and fertility around your neck, what kind of woman is going to respect you?"

                      That's why I've teamed up with Medallion Man, the shop for medallion needs. Medallion Man caters to all levels of masculinity, for the strong silent type a medallion the size of a hub cap will say everything that needs to be said. Even singing medallions for the Casanova who knows music is the food of love. My old drains, thai houses, diapers, whatever your interest, we've got the medallion for you.

                      Don't forget, every woman knows, if you can't support a medallion, you can't support a family.
                      I just wear a watch. I've never seen a men's ring that I like.

                        Thankfully I never got bit by the jewelry bug. My ex-wife however would always complain that she never had enough. The only thing I wear is a watch. I tried rings, necklaces, and bracelets but never liked them. Fortunately my girlfriend doesn't care about jewelry like my ex-wife. She likes it but doesn't believe in mortgaging your future for the stuff. She has however mentioned that she wants a decent engagement/marriage ring.

                          I once had a class ring that I kind of liked, but I made the mistake of giving it to a girlfriend and never did get it back.

                            For a watch a wear a titanium Breitling Aerospace that I got back in 2001. A few years ago at the JMS signing at the San Diego Comic Con I noticed that he had the same watch. I thought that was weird coincidence. That's about it in terms of jewelry for me other than a titanium chain I wear on and off.

                              I wear a hand-engraved wedding ring and a cheap Casio Watch most of the time. The cheap watch was adopted after I discovered that some natural law dictates that any expensive watch on my wrist will be freakishly destroyed within a year, but any cheap watch will last decades. After that, I have a number of tie pins when wearing said article, a pocket watch and simple chain when wearing 18th century kit, and a bonnet badge and kilt pin when kilted.
