Title: Man jewlery
Post by: weazletoe on February 06, 2011, 03:05:25 AM
 I'm a big fan. i'm really into the SS stuff. It's cheap, and it looks good. Been collectiong it lately. I never take any of it off, except the watch. Thinking of adding a pinky ring. Holly thinks it would be to much, though. Next purchase will be a heavier necklace. This is kind of a cheap one, that I have now. Need something heavier, and better quality.
  How bout you all? Anyone wear any man bling?

Just the wedding yoke (ring). Plenty of bling with it, don't need much. I'm the bling!

Same here, the little gold band is the only bling you'll ever see me with.

Try as I might, I cannot get used to wearing a watch. I have a nice one my wife got me when we
married. It sits at home. I use my cell for time more than anything. I used to wear a silver chain
bracellet. But I lost it and subseqent replacements were "Silver" that wore down to copper.

Havent bought a repacement since that green stain on my wrist.

I just have the wedding ring which I think of as jewellery, and that gets taken off for certain activities. I do wear a stainless chronograph though, and would be lost without it.

I cant wear any jewelry. It just bothers me. Cant imagine wearing a watch. I dont wear my wedding ring either.

Once I took a high frequency arc to the ring finger and nearly pooped my pants.

Besides (and no offense). I always found jewelry on men to be rather effeminate. Especially on the thumb. A women told me once that the thumb ring is used in a certain sex act that is performed on a man. Its there as a signal.

Hey weaze, you think drinking cocoa is girly, but you wear jewelery?  ;D

Have never had any luck with wristwatches.  Whenever I've had one, it's usually been broken within a week or two so I haven't worn one in probably 30-35 years.

 I just don't even know where to start to respond to this! First off, I laughed my butt off at the pants pooping. That's always classic stuff. I have never heard that about the thumb ring!  :o Now i'm worried!!! And as for you last comment........you're an ass!  ;D

Not because it's effeminate or any such nonsense.  I can't wear rings cause they interfere with my typing and make that all awkward. I can't wear anything else because I'm such a graceless oaf that I get caught up in everything!

I've heard the same about the thumb ring, but the same applies to tongue piercings, and that doesn't seem to stop anyone. The signals are there if you know what they are, but to most people it's just jewellery.

Shiny stuff tends to attract hungry things with big teeth when I'm in the ocean, so I don't wear it.  The sun and stars work pretty good for knowing what time it is.  And there's the clock on my iPhone if I need to know the time more exactly.

A wedding ring and my watch is all I ever wear.  Many, many, were talking very many moons ago I wore a class ring but it wouldn't even fit my pinky anymore.  I stopped wearing a light gold chain about 15 years ago when it finally broke.

I do many things around HV and moving gears to wear too much in the way of jewlery.  God put me on this earth with a certain inventory and I plan on returning the kit with as much still attached as possible.

I know a few people who've had that done, and some who've had metal installed in their skeleton. Not a way to go if it's avoidable, but it does apparently confuse the airport metal detector.

but dang the poor dude is so genuine.  

I just fear for the guy,
sporting his Ohio bling in the PocaTEHyo....

Praps ye shoulda been a real pirate Weaze
those dudes really could dress up with makeup and jewels.

What does Holly think?  That is all that really matters.   ;)

I've got just the standard gold wedding ring (take it off for showers, working in the garden, or doing things that otherwise might ding it up more than it already is) and a non-battery (gotta wind it every day) hamilton from the '50s. Supposedly it's the same watch model that JFK wore. Got a nice crocodile strap for it, I only wear that when I'm working.

Post by: akr71 on February 07, 2011, 01:54:10 PM
Just the wedding band and wristwatch for me.  The ring occassionally comes off when I'm preparing food (like burgers or something else for the grill).  The watch I've never considered 'jewelry' - more like a tool - the timer gets used to keep track of mash and boil times - the alarm gets used when in a hotel (I don't trust their alarm clocks) or I'm concerned we might lose power over night.

I used to have my ear pierced, but finally took that out about a year ago - I got tired of my (now 2 year old) son grabbing it and ripping it out.  Once upon a time (like 20 years ago) I had my eyebrow pierced, but got tied of it in a few months.

BTW Weaze - I like the bottle opener ring too.

I got one of those for Christmas, but I haven't tried it out yet.
Just a wedding ring for me, a simple silver band.  Rings take some abuse in my work and I'm on my third wedding ring (same wife).  I wear a watch only when traveling by plane so I don't have to keep turning my stupid phone off and on all the time.

I can't wear anything either, the longest I was able to wear a wedding ring was two or three years and finally was given permission to take it off because what it did to my finger was obvious.  I used to wear a watch but after working with electric it too became a lost item... I don't really miss it and I surely don't need a watch to to tell what time it is, my body knows the basics and if I need more detail than that then there is always a wall clock, radio clock, computer etc nearby.  Funny thing... I usually find people that wear watches are late more often than those who do not.   ::)

Maybe you're happy without the ring, but if you want to get back to it, I found that taking it off each night and putting it back on in the morning got rid of what mine was doing to my finger.  Been working for almost 18 years for me.

Wedding band and that's it. Wearing any jewelry is just a nuisance to me. In fact my wedding band is a PITA. To each his own I guess.

I'm sure I'll be in the ass category soon too.  ;)

Wedding band when out of the house (a lot of times it gets put up with the wallet, keys, etc when home).  I tried to take up wearing a watch, but I always fell out of the habit.  When you work in front of a computer all day you get used to having your timepiece in the lower right of your screen, anyway.

Can't do it. Used to wear a wedding ring but I took it off because it drove me nuts. Reach for a beer - clink, open a door - clink just hated it. Took it off 10 years ago and found out that I was still just as married without it. Nothing else for me ever, just not my style.

I learned the hard way not to pat my son on the head with my left hand. Couple of time I really nailed him with the ring, unintentionally. I even thought, "Really boy, that didn't hurt." and tried it on my head...all I could say was OW!!!

And some +1 to the dings on the ring from work in general. Gardening, auto-care oddly enough my ring is supposed
to have a brushed finish but my wear and tear on it has basically polished it. Damn you soft metals...;D

Have any of you welding/fabrication types ever tried making a ring.

Seems like slicing off a proper sized piece of pipe and polishing it up real nice would work.

Have you ever taken a beer bottle and just lightly clinked the mouth of it repeatedly against the mouth of another bottle?  If you do it just right, it'll snap off cleanly right below the base where the cap goes on.  I did this once and then using some wet sandpaper, smoothed the rough edges and made a ring out of it.  A girl I knew wore it for quite a while until she dropped it when she was playing around with it and it became little ring shards...

Of course, everyone on here would never do that because they'd rather fill the bottle...
