A married man should wear a wedding ring and a Watch if forced too.

If you are Italian over 50 from NJ and have Mob Connections a little extra bling is fine

that's all I wear, and that's enough. anything after that is ridiculous.
to me, IMO, men dont need to wear anything else. As a gay man, I even think man wearing chains and bracelets and rings look stupid. To me there is no need for a man to wear un necessary jewelry.

Well I think you NEED to mention it, as it will go a long way in explaining your style.

As an aside, I recently toured the Cartier Exhibit and this thread brings to mind this picture I snapped:

Sounds like way too much jewelry for a man to be wearing all at once....

Completely agreed.

However, if someone will think that I am gay when I am wearing jewelry, then I personally have no problem with this!

Real men wear a lot of jewelry, though.

Jewelry doesn't indicate sexual preference... if you think it does perhaps you have noticed that gay men tend to "peacock" a bit better on average than an average straight man. This is just an observation of mine, and a snapshot in time, but I've noticed this, and I'm a straight guy. Some gay men just know how to be "put together" quite well and that usually includes accessorizing while wearing a coordinating outfit.

All that stated, to the OP - it sounds like your family has style... if I were you I wouldn't hold back, just be yourself, dress and accessorize however you like and go after the women and career and life you want to have without worrying about whether you look or act "like" someone or something else.

^^^^^

A very famous necklace, the Patiala Necklace. Made by Cartier for a maharaja over a hundred years ago. Something like 250 carats of diamonds. It went missing for a while, resurfaced with some of the diamonds removed. To restore it to the original appearance a few of the missing diamonds were replaced with synthetics.

If someone has a problem with you wearing jewellery tell them to mind their own business?
