works for me

PS: "wedding ring", and simple "watch" wearer here.
I hate jewelry, necklaces, bracelets, blech! There is no need for them. JMO though.

I hate jewelry on men. Wedding ring and nice Cartier watch in stainless is all I can go for.It is a deal breaker with me. I really hate it!

Personally I think jewelry detracts from a man's masculinity and renders his appearance less attractive.

Also, I've seen men wearing jewelry in ways which make it seem as if they are trying to hard to appear impressive or wealthy or successful - that's a big turn-off.

I realize I'm the oddball, because I don't care for jewelry at all on anyone... it's too distracting... all I notice are noisy bangles clinking together or wonder why someone is wearing 12 thin chain necklaces instead of 1... & I've always thought of it as more a feminine accessory. I don't know why I have an aversion to it... I've just never been into it. However, I don't mind (or care... really, it's none of my business) if anyone wears it (kind of the same way I feel about tattoos)... I'm just not going to ask about one's bracelet/watch or ohh & ahh over a pendant or ring.

Maybe it's because I don't like to wear any... I cannot stand the feel of anything restrictive on me... I can't even wear a high neckline or winter scarf without constantly pulling & poking at it to the point that other people say, 'Take that thing off, you're making me itchy!', so I just don't wear them either. And, fortunately we have cells today with clocks... I gave up 'wearing' a watch at 18 when I'd lost my 6th wristwatch in as many weeks... I kept removing it to put in my pocket (because I couldn't stand the feeling of it around my wrist) & kept replacing them until I realized it would be an ongoing, pricey effort. The good news is I have an internal clock & can tell the time within a 10-15 min range, because I had to learn to do so... I'm a human sundial.

Honestly, I haven't noticed in a long time... are people still wearing lots of jewelry? Maybe because I'm in a beach area, many seem to go without as they're in the water surfing or walking the beach & don't want to lose anything. I just don't see (or notice) much jewelry any longer.

My hubby wears a silver chain with a cross (that I bought him when we were dating many years ago) around his neck. Also plain yellow gold wedding band, and a tiger eye signet ring that belonged to his dad. A decent understated watch.

He wants a gold wrist chain.

I don't mind jewelry on a guy as long as it's not overdone.
