Greetings, gentlemen

I come to you today to inquire about jewelry. Besides a watch (mechanical, of course), wedding ring, and perhaps a locket, what are other gentlemanly items of jewelry, and what are gawdy articles for the riffraff? (like cuban necklaces, earrings, or grills)

Good day to you, sir.

I myself, am a fan of cuff-links. They can add a pop of color to your wrists, which may come in handy if you tend to talk with your hands.

Best Regards.

A respectable gentleman may also wear a ring denoting academic or fraternal affiliation.

Gentlemen.

U should note the difference between jewelry and accessoires. That said, I'm convinced that there are no unisex pieces of jewelry besides wedding rings. Therefore necklaces, earrings and other ornamental jewelry is for her. Cuff-links, (pocket) watches, tie-holders and other functional jewelry are concidered accessoires, which is fine for him.

A pocket watch is a splendid item of jewelry for a man.

My good fellow, you should note the difference between "You" and "U". One is a word and has meaning, the other is a letter and merely indicates a sound.

While we are on the subject of meaning, let us also examine the word "jewelry" and note that if an item bears a jewel upon it, it may be identified as a piece of jewelry. A gentleman's accessories may bear one or more jewels tastefully. Though I will grant you that any item that can be described with the word "encrusted" is far too gaudy and conspicuously wealthy to be a proper choice for a respectable gentleman.

I find that donning religious necklaces can be found very gentlemanly by our more pious peers.

Agreed, with caveats. First, it should ideally be no bigger than a penny (or other similarly sized coin, depending on your currency of choice), with a chain or cord no thicker than needed for a pendant this size. Any larger than this and you risk turning yourself into a billboard, at which point you might as well be wearing a Nike "Swoosh" or other meaningless logo.

Secondly, it should be of one material only, and while it may be of precious metal or shaped precious stone, applied gems are right out.

These two may be overlooked to a certain degree, should the item have sentimental significance. But in all circumstances, a religious pendant should be kept under the clothing in all except the most casual of circumstances.
