There was once a time when you never saw men wearing anything flashy. There was a time when diamonds were only a girl’s best friend. The days of female only Jewelry are long gone. Step into any high-powered business meeting room and look around. You see women with beautiful earrings, bathed in white gold and wearing rings with sparkles that illuminate the room and now, you also see the men with jewelry. Nothing says success like a man wearing a huge diamond earring and sporting an elaborately decorated wedding ring on his finger. Today’s modern man is just at home in his local jewelry store as the modern woman.
This weekend I was watching these old Hollywood movies with my wife and we both noticed that none of the men in the movie used big rings. There were a few male actors who used a watch but even then it was not a true piece of shine. I pointed with my index finger at one man who stepped out of a Rolls Royce, and he didn’t even have a tennis bracelet around his wrist. On my own index finger I wear a handsome blue-diamond ring that is fit for a king. I felt like laughing at the sight of a man with so little precious material on his hands, neck and ears. I told my wife that if I had the kind of money you need to buy a car like his, I would go out to the jewelry store and a pair of huge gold bracelets with dangling pearl sets and maybe a tie pin with a few diamonds in it. My wife like me loves jewelry and she loves a man who is comfortable and wealthy enough to wear big, bold jewels all over his person.
There is this new guy at the office who is somewhat of a odd duck. He came to us about two months ago and he seems to be really nice and everything but he has no jewelry. We are all sitting down to the lunch and the other guys started to make little cracks at him about how unimpressive his presence was in the office. The guy didn’t know what to do and I felt awful, I pulled him aside after lunch and asked him why he never wore any jewelry. He told me that he came from a place where jewelry was considered feminine. I took him out to the pawn shop before we went back to the office. I showed his some great stuff and he made some excellent purchases. The next day when he showed up to the office wearing his silver and ruby necklace all the people in the office stopped what they were doing to stare in admiration at this luminous young man. In today’s world, it doesn’t matter what you do, man or woman you should try and do it while wearing as much jewelry as possible, it’s just the way we do things today.
