    Default men's jewelry


    the only "jewelry" i wear is a dive watch, and a thin black rubber bracelet that's looped around my wrist twice (a gift from my brother). i tend to only wear stuff that has some sort of meaning for me. i have a buddhist bracelet that my mom gave me, and a plain silver band ring given to me by a dear friend. but these i don't wear too often for fear of losing them. also, i used to have a small silver earring in my upper ear that i got from one of my first adventures in nyc -- my friend wanted to get her bellybutton pierced but was scared. so i got my ear pierced to give her moral support. this was many years ago. now my ears are bare.

    i am currently shopping around for a nice simple, subdued bracelet. i don't have anything specific in mind, but i'll know it when i see it.

    so what kind of jewelry (if any) do you all wear?

    My wristwatch and a commitment ring, though I don't really consider mens watches to be jewelry, unless it's loaded with bling. I am not big on jewelry and I have a particular aversion to all things gold or yellow on guys.

    For a wedding band I wear an 18k gold ring from Peru that was given to me by a Peruvian couple me and my wife met one night while wandering around Los Angeles. The ring has raised square top with the relief of what appears to be some entity from a Mayan temple carving, the square sides of the ring also have some hieroglyphics on it. I negelcted to ask the Peruvians what it meant. I like the Peruvian 18k gold as it has a slightly darker (towards red) color than the 18k gold common in the US.

    On my right hand I have a heavy 18k gold ring, again a squarish shaped top and sides with a textured pattern and set with a 3.5 carat ceylon cut blue sapphire. The sapphire is not a deep blue but it is a well propotioned stone cut with enough depth that it is very lively and I consider the light blue to be much preferable to the almost black stones you typically see in mall jewelry stores.

    If I routinely wore a suit and tie then I would have cufflinks but I rarely even wear a tie.

    The closest thing I have that could be called jewelry is my PIMP watch:

    You tell the time by checking the left row first. Those are the hours. And the rows going horizontal of the left column are the minutes. Every row is five minutes.

    Mine has a rubber bracelet and unfortunately has ceased to work, but while it lasted it was an awesome thing to look at!

    I wear a diamond ring,not a monster nor a chipping either,and thats only if i'm off out somewhere.Watches are nice,but as with most adornments you need a decent selection,and i for one cant afford such goodies.I personally like the less is more approach. 8-)

    We did pick them up the next day so they could go shopping and then we took them out to dinner. They were Peruvians of Japanese ancestry and were on a stopover in Los Angeles on their return from visiting relatives in Japan. The ring was leftover from a batch that they had had made in Peru to give to relatives in Japan.

    A watch (Movado Luno) and a small, silver Thor's hammer around my neck. That's it.

    I have a piece of white string wrapped twice around my left wrist and tied. That is about it. I dont' wear my watch anymore because I have one that clips on to my belt loop. It is so much more handy then a wristwatch. I have no necklaces or earings or anything. I guess I am pretty plain...

    I like having nothing though because it means nothing to worry about. I hate losing things and something like jewlery is more than not fun to lose. I keep it simple and just display me instead of shiny gold pieces...
