    Men wearing jewellery. Where do you stand?

    The other week I was watching the Formula one post race interviews and saw Lewis Hamilton wearing large diamond earrings and a gold chain so huge you could moor up a ship with it! It pained me as an English man, but I thought he looked ridiculous.

    This got me thinking. Jenson Button, another F1 driver, was quoted once that a man should only wear 2 items of jewellery - a watch and a wedding ring. I must admit that this is a lot closer to my way of thinking but I'm a white 50 year old man, who was a policeman for 30 years, and so my views could be considered conservative to say the least.

    Personally I wear a watch and wedding ring every day and occasionally another ring on my other hand if I'm "going out". No neckless or earrings. In addition I wear a couple of silicon armed forces charity bracelets on my non watch wrist. My wife wants me to wear one of those woven leather bracelets, and although I tried one on just thought nooooooo.

    So where do you stand? Lewis hamilton looks a cool hip dude or a prat?

    Paul.

    Wedding band, watch, sometimes a paracord survival bracelet given by my children, and a Maltese Cross/St. Florian necklace-under my shirt. And all the labels are on the INSIDE of my clothes...

    To each their own. I realize there are different cultures, more power to them if they choose to wear jewelry

    Typically it is just a wedding ring and a watch for me. Wedding band is a simple Ti band with a slight brushed finish, none of my watches are terribly flashy either.

    When I travel for work I wear a cheap small-bead chain with a loose pair of angel wings (pendant). It is nothing fancy, actually it is so worn that the chrome has worn through to the brass on much of the chain. It was given to me by my daughter, and she asked me to wear my wings when I travel. If I leave town for work, they are always under my shirt/jacket.

    Wear whatever you want. Life is too short to give a s___ about how someone else chooses to express themselves or what they like to wear. If Lewis Hamilton likes wearing lots of bling then good luck to him. He's a young guy that's earned his money, probably likes being fashionable and he isn't hurting anyone so what's the big deal?
