    @TammieRei:  I like guys who wear thumb rings, DH doesn’t wear one but I wish he would!

    For me, it totally depends on the guy and his ‘look.’

    I don’t think I’d be into them on DH, but on some guys I think it looks fine.

    I agree that it depends on the guy and his look. My DH I can’t really picture wearing rings other than his band, even that he only wears on occasion. My sister’s BF wears rings, he likes them a lot so he will usually wear 2 or 3 and I think he can pull them off.

    @TammieRei:  It’s not my thing.  My FI wears no rings because of his job.  On the other hand my dad wears his wedding ring and his masonic ring all the time.  I think one other ring is no big deal, tons of bling then we might have issues.

    I don’t like when guys wear other rings for fashion, but if a guy wears a college class ring, or order of engineers ring, or something with meaning like that, I don’t find it distasteful at all

    I voted other, because FI said his finger felt naked so we decided to get him an engagement ring, it was about $60 and it’s pretty nice, he’ll actually be getting a very similar wedding band. And we both plan on getting very cheap sterling silver bands for like going in the ocean so we can still wear a ring but it’s not a big deal if we lose them. I think that’s sweet but other than that I’m not into a guy who wears rings. 🙂

    My FI wanted a “mangagement” ring so he wears one. Smile  He’s getting a different wedding ring and will wear the first ring on his right hand once we’re married.

    I never noticed rings on guys or thought about it before, so I guess it doesn’t bother me.

    I know a lot of bikers that wear some bad ass metal on their fingers. I like it! My SO wheres a hematite ring on his middle finger sometimes (wanted it for his thumb but couldn’t find one to fit) The hematite is supposed to be beneficial to wellness or something like that lol. But I only like rings on guys that pull off the “tough” look.

    I think it really depends on the mans style! Some men can pull it off and others (like my FI) cant!

    @TammieRei:  I’m imagining a diamond encrusted thick gold number on a very hairy hand.  In that case yes, turnoff.  I’m sure there are guys that can pull it off though.

    I’ve never really thought about it. Jewelry isn’t my husband’s thing, so he wouldn’t wear another ring. My dad, on the other hand, is the one I inherited my love of shiny from, and he would love this super blingy 3ct moissanite men’s ring that we saw on MoissaniteCo.  Of the two, my dad is the more “manly man” type.

    It depends on the man and his look.

    Just like every other piece of adornment (Clothing / Accessories / Jewellery) every man has his own style… so not everything is going to look great on every guy.

    Same way as in say a particular style of hat wouldn’t suit every man either.
