    I don't think any jewelry is going to be historically "appropriate" other than a wedding band and a watch. That said, it's 2009. I think a single bracelet, a single necklace, a single ring etc are fine.

    IMO, with a suit, wedding band and a watch + cuff links. This is why men should spend more on these accessories as we wear so little.

    Most days my wedding band and my watch, platinum ring and rolex submariner...other days I will wear my college ring and maybe carry a fountain pen, and when dressing up I will add cufflinks, but typically nothing more.

    None. You can wear a wedding band, a watch and cufflinks.

    You can wear as many rings, bracelets and pendants as you wish, up to 80s rap level. Now depending on where you are what is "appropriate" might not be the same. Around the world wearing a silver/gold bracelets and some rings is usually considered ok

    I wear a stainless steel watch, kada (stainless steel sikh bracelet) a gold necklace with a cross my aunt gave me when I was 12 (I have never taken it off if the last 23 years) and when I get married I'm sure I'll wear some type of platinum wedding band. Anything more than that and I might as well wear a huge clock around my neck i.e. Flavor Flav.

    Seriously though, gold should be worn underneath your shirts.
