The Rules of Man Jewelry
The dos and don'ts of wearing jewelry (along with some smart options to wear right now).
If a man's wearing his class ring, you probably won't respect him. If a man's wearing a pinky ring, you probably shouldn't fuck with him.
Make no mistake: Not everyone can pull off a ring. This isn't a "fake it till ya make it" type of move. A ring on any other finger than the requisite left ring finger after matrimony indicates a certain swagger and confidence. It might have something to do with the provenance of a ring. Back in the day, a ring was a sign of a man's wealth and social status. Kind of like cars are today. And just like with cars, you don't want anything too flashy. Play it cool and let the ring speak softly. What's more, there are plenty of options right now that will suit your tastes. Want something rough and rugged? Polished and slightly preppy? The right ring makes the perfect compliment or contrast to whatever you're wearing, from a crisp suit to some beat-up jeans and Chelsea boots.

Have large hands? Feel free to wear larger, broad rings. Men with smaller hands or slimmer fingers should balance the proportion by wearing smaller, thinner rings.
