Is black jewelry attractive on males? Casual setting. Like a black chain black ring David Yurman vibes

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe the only jewelry men should wear are a wedding band if they’re married (slim, gold - not a fan of the “manly” industrial looking thick ones being sold nowadays), and a simple dress watch.


I generally agree with you but am cool with some deviation from the old-fashioned gold and I like a nice watch that has character and isn’t “simple”. It isn’t necessarily that it’s casual, it’s that it’s gaudy.

The necklace looks good on you. The ring does not.


I don’t find jewelry on men attractive besides a wedding band and nice watches. I’m a dude who is attracted to dudes so maybe women feel differently.

I do like a cool/different wedding band that isn’t the typical gold, so a black metal wedding ring could be cool, but guys wearing non-wedding related rings or chains or other jewelry just seems immature almost or trashy. If it’s not a wedding ring it just strikes me as attention seeking and low class. Gaudy.

I’m from Jersey so I guess it just gives me trashy guido vibes. I had two earrings in one ear during my teen years and into college but I haven’t worn earrings since law school.


I'm a woman attracted to men and I agree with you. Rings and watches are the only jewelry I like on a man. Anything else just feels kind of tacky to me.





Stay with silver or gold but black could work depends what skin tone it’s complimenting and what you’re wearing.


There's a lot of people in here with a conservative take; frankly you should wear what you like, especially if you aren't in a professional setting. You only get one life, if you like wearing jewelry then do it. Don't wear it solely because you want to be perceived as attractive though. I personally wear a chunky signet ring and a bolo tie pretty frequently, in addition to a watch and a sentimental ring; I often get good feedback on them.

To the point though; I feel like jewelry is highly dependent on the outfit since it functions as an accent. Casual setting so more things will work, but I personally don't like wearing black jewelry unless I'm wearing predominantly black and/or white with minimal color already. I personally wouldn't wear it with the shirt you are wearing in the photo, but that's just me. I'd wear black jewelry with:
- predominantly black clothing, for a subtle element.
- when wearing a white article of clothing that is in contact with the jewelry (e.g. white shirt and black necklace )
- bright, strong hues work well with the contrast; conversely I don't like pale tones with black jewelry
- darker shades are a case-by-case - I personally am not a fan of maroon, but a dark green/olive goes well.

These are just some thoughts of mine; I'm by no means a style expert and I'm sure some folks would have beef with something I've said.



I don’t personally find it attractive but some do!

Any jewelry you choose if fine but generally speaking keep it subtle. Like others things a little different, own it. Otherwise it can seem a little costume-ish. I typically wear bow ties (for 30 years) so it seems really natural with me - for example.

Depends on the man and his vibe. I am dating a guy who doesn’t wear anything, not even a watch but I think some men look very sexy with jewelry, so just own your style!

Not in consulting.
