Do you like it when men wear jewelry? And by jewelry, I mean anything more than a wedding band and a watch. Ok, maybe a special dispensation if the guy has a Super Bowl ring…
I don’t like it. There I said it. Maybe because I’ve never seen my dad wear any more than that. I don’t know.
So my husband has hinted that he wants a gold chain to put a cross on. Now I know this cross has a lot of sentimental value to him (it came from his dad who has since died). So I’m going to buy hm the chain as a surprise.
But my heart isn’t in it. I just have a mental hangup about men wearing jewelry. It reminds me of the 1970s…leisure suits with Qiana shirts unbuttoned halfway to the waist, with a thick gold chain on a hairy chest. Ick.
PLEASE tell me it’s not like that. I don’t want to cringe everytime I see him wear this. I know because I’m buying him the chain and his dad gave him the cross, he will wear it A LOT. Ugh.
I love my husband more than anything and want to make him happy, but sometimes it’s so hard.

I don’t mind a little bit of jewelry on men.
Are we talking like a huge blingy cross on a big fat chain, or a small tasteful cross? If it’s the latter I wouldn’t mind it. My current SO doesn’t wear any jewelry at all, but a past boyfriend of mine used to wear a necklace everyday (just a plain stainless steel chain that wasn’t that big/long) and it didn’t bother me. I barely noticed it.

Lol – just don’t let it look like this:
Lol – sorry – couldn’t resist!! Honestly, I don’t love anything more than a watch or ring on a guy because my Dad or bf never have. My ex hubby had a really nice gold cross on a chain, though and it looked very nice. It’ll be okay…

My fiance never wore jewelry when I first met him…then after several months, he just decided he was gonna be a jewelry sorta dude. We went through this terrible jewelry purchasing phase…and at first I was really upset by it. I don’t know. I mean, it was ugly and stupid and not my taste and not what i signed up for. Why is he allowed to suck me in and then later reveal the ugly truth? Haha. I just had to come to terms with the fact that he’s a grown man and his stupid taste in jewelry is a reflection of HIM not of me. And if that’s the worst thing about him, then I’ll count myself lucky. Luckily, he’s sort of moved on from that phase. He might occasionally wear the stupid stuff, but not often.

I wish my Fiance wore more jewellery! I love jewellery in general and men are no different. Some stuff can be tacky and to be fair, most styles don’t really suit my Fiance.
Don’t worry – I’m sure you’ll get over the gold chain. It’s a small enough piece and if it really means something to him you won’t mind. Good call buying it yourself though – you’ll probably be able to pick out a tasteful chain that’s not too thick…

@luckyprincess: OMG that’s my worst nightmare! But fortunately, the cross is small and plain.
@missrobots: I think you nailed it. A jewelry-wearing husband is not what I signed up for. And it’s weird, but I do irrationally feel in some way now that we are married that his taste is a reflection on mine. You know, I married a guy who wears a gold chain, so people must assume that I like that kind of thing. Or maybe someone will assume that because he never wore jewelry before he married me, that I’m the one encouraging it…especially since he will tell everyone he knows that I bought the chain. I know I’m being silly. Sigh.

My man has his ears peirced and wears diamond studs when he’s dressing up. He used to wear this ugly silver chain until it “mysteriously” disappeared…oops. I don’t have a problem with men wearing jewelry as long as it’s not over done. I hate big blingy chains or a dude with more than one ring on.
I think my man gets away with the peirced ears because he also is covered in tattoos and has studs in both his lip and eye brow. He’s going for the bad boy look I guess lol. He always keeps his jewelry and peircings low profile and small though, so that’s a good thing!
Here is a man who is notorious for wearing jewelry. I think he can erase your visions of a hairy chested, track suit wearing 70s OG….
This is one sexy and style savvy man who isn’t afraid to wear jewelry. He’s often snapped in photos wearing earrings, chains, and bracelets! I’m glad my man is going for Beck’s style 😉

Mmmmmm……..*huh* I’m sorry, what did you say? I saw a bunch of words all around David’s pictures but for some reason I couldn’t concentrate on them….;)
Seriously, he could wear a burlap sack and it would look stylish and hot, lol!

My Fiance always wears a gold chain – never takes it off – I love it – it is actually very sexy. Now this is a plain chain, thin and not long 🙂

my fi always wears a rustic cross on a leather cord. ALWAYS, he has only taken it off for surgery.
