    I think a watch and cufflinks is as bejeweled as a man should ever be.

    A nice watch is all I need. Maybe a wedding band at some point.

    I like very old gold rings, especially worn on the index finger.

    Also, Indians (from India) have a tendency to wear several gold rings on one hand, which I think is a nice look. As well, North American Indians can get away with large sterling pieces.

    I do the cross on a chain sometimes, and I'm not Latin. Well, I'm white, but was raised a Catholic. I don't like the term "Latin" referring only to Hispanics anyway. ALL of us raised in a western culture are really Latin; espcially Americans. What can be more "Latin" than living in a Republic?

    Anyway, back to the topic...I'd like a carnelian ring, I think.

    Dude, I just want to express how impressed I am by the number of subjects you covered in so little space. That must be one of the most digressive four-line posts ever, especially given that each successive concept bears at least a thread of connection to the prior one. Bravo. [​IMG]
    Aside from my wedding ring (and occasionally cufflinks) I don't wear jewelry - not even a watch. On other men, it's all a question of personal style. Some men wear jewelry that looks classy and elegant on them. Some wear jewelry that looks gaudy, pretentious, and awful on them. And some wear jewelry that looks gaudy and excessive but somehow works.
    It goes on the long list of things that I'm not comfortable with myself (either physically, since I'm not used to it, or in terms of personal style) but admire on other people when it's done well.

    I think that English is basically a mix of Latin and Germanic languages, at least it appears to comprise two sets of vocabulary, one of Latin and one of Germanic origin. It appears to have something to do with Saxons and invading Normands. It also causes a lot of problems for those of us who have to learn the language. I think that the missing link between the way words are written and the way they are pronounced is partly due to this double origin of the vocabulary.
    Actually it was the Normandy French who invaded the Saxons (English). French became the language of the royal court and many french words were incorporated into the common language, English. It still is an relatively small portion of the vocabulary and did not affect the grammar of the language at all, so English is quite clearly a Germanic language and not latin.

    On topic: I wear a thick italian gold chain. Hey, if you're going to do it, might as well go all the way.

    Every man needs two things...a nice watch, and a good pair of shoes. I personally wear a watch, a wedding band, and what is known as a "scribe's" or "writer's" ring; an understated, sterling silver ring worn on the right index finger. Works for me.

    I can't believe, of all the threads I start, this is the one that has the staying power.
