Well, now that you've asked...

My blog post the other day about my friend and his question about the chain has been on my mind a lot lately. So I just have a couple things to say to the gentlemen about jewelry.

- Keep it simple. Unless you've got some professional advice, avoid wearing more than one necklace at a time.

- If you're going to do bracelets, pick one arm... two arms with bracelets is entering dangerous territory...

- As far as coloration goes, never EVER wear a silver necklace with a gold bracelet and vice-versa or any combination thereof. If one is leather or other natural-fiber based, you'll have a bit more mixing freedom.

- Approach ALL gold with caution. Silver always looks fresher, younger, and it goes with more.

- In my professional opinion, unless you are married, rings are SELDOM a good idea.

- Keep it sleek yet substantial. Be very careful with the width of the chain. Too thick will look like tranny costume jewelry. Too thin will look too cheap.

- As far as length of necklaces, chokers are never EVER ok. Personally, I prefer longer chains, ones that hang down to your sternum. They make your upper torso look longer and draw out the line from your chest from your head. If done corrrectly it can make you look taller and thinner.
