Ring Etiquette - Page 2

post #16 of 42
The only men who can wear a pinky ring and not look like a guido are engineers. When I see a guy with a pinky ring I just roll my eyes and think, "Oh, I see". I think one ring per hand. Wedding ring + one other is the max.

^ why engineers?

Brits (and many other Europeans) of the very non-guido type typically wear signet rings on their pinkies.

Engineers (at least in Canada) get an Iron Ring when they graduate. It's worn on the pinky finger of your working hand.

I enjoy wearing multiple gold rings like Sammy Davis Jr., or Renaissance popes.

i didn;t read the op, but make sure it's big enough to slide over both your cock and the base of your nuts.

I'm not the type to wear a lot of jewelry - a watch and two rings is pushing it for me - but I wear a wedding band on my left hand and I will occasionally wear a simple band on my right thumb. I've found that I get a few questions about the thumb, particularly because it's on the hand I use to shake hands, but people are generally complimentary. The people who are not complimentary tend to be guys who think it's funny to give me grief for it, and it tends to be from the same group that picks on me for dressing better than they do. The compliments tend to come from women and better-dressed men. I don't have to tell you which group is the one to which I pay attention.

Given the above I think a solitary thumb ring is fine. However, I always take it off for events where there is any real level of formality.

Well since you've decided I can't do it I'll abandon the practice immediately.

Now you just have to convince the other 10 or so other posters in this thread who said a ring is fine, assuming it's done properly.

it really is a very cultural thing. I know a lot of europeans who wear this well. I actually know a few americans who pull it off well, too. but many can't

i hate rings on the thumb. i think it looks so tacky and out of place. just my opinion.

The U.S. military says you can wear one ring, in good taste (sic), on each hand. I'd say that's probably a good standard to go by.

I wear a turqoise/silver on my left index and a bloodstone/white gold signet on my right middle. That's where they fit.

True.
Unless you are an Engineer.

An iron ring wore by engineers on their dominant hand signifies their commitment to safety and acts as a reminder of an engineer's professional and moral obligation to the public. Each time the wearer writes, draws or signs their work, his/her ring brushes against the document and reminds them of engineering humility.

That's cool, I didn't know that.

I was in a meeting with a guy who wore a pinky ring on both hands, one was diamond and the other was some other jewel. It was surprising given his position and profession.
