Jewelry, gold chains in particular make me think the guy is a thug. What do you think?

I don't like chains. An earring or 2 sure, even a small necklace. But anything else is too much--big gold chain necklaces, gold teeth. Too much jewelry may be with issue.

I had a guy hit on me, gold chains, teeth, earrings. Needless to say I got a thug-wannabe vibe from him, and was not interested.

Gold chain. No. Small earrings? Maybe. Small necklace? Maybe. Interesting watch? Sure.

But gold chain usually goes with the baggy white tee and saggy pants and I don't like that look. More into preppy.

I'm good with a watch (and not a fussy expensive one).

Anything else is trying too hard; I like my men more rugged. My husband wears nothing but his wedding ring.

It depends on the jewelry and the guy's personal style.

He wears nothing but his wedding ring? Are you guys nudists?

It depends - Steven Tyler and other Rock Stars it fits and looks really cool they can carry off that look. However, most men are not Rock Stars and cannot wear that look.

I think one ring or one necklace looks fine on most men so do earrings - less is better.

I went on a blind date years ago and there were so many things wrong with this date - he was really late, out of control ego, alot of attitude - narcissistic type - yuck ! and like it couldn't be any worse . . . he was wearing a ton of jewelry - eeww !
I'm not kidding - I think he had 4-5 rings - lots of gold chains and lots of bracelets - yuck ! I'm the type of person that finds the best in others, my friends say I'm the optimist, however, this was the absolute worst first impression I've ever had.

Needless, to say I was quickly walking after lunch saying Ciao to him and all the jewelry!

I think it looks fine. A guy who can pull it off looks pretty good, maybe it's the contrast between the rough-around-the-edges masculinity with a little bit of bling. Not too much bling, though... I don't see the appeal of Mr. T.

I think watches, dog tags, and earrings look incredibly sexy on some guys if they know how to wear them.

Rosary bracelets and necklaces are nice too.
