I have a ruby this size and shape, looking for a mounting.  I am considering a silver cage.  And it'll probably look better than that.


It's clever.  And, if your lady is really interested in Mars it's a neat bauble.  But, it's not stunningly attractive.

Too feminine for a man to wear, is my original question?

Not feminine at all.

As a history geek, I'll say it's worth knowing that Mars was seen as a symbol of strength and virility. Pretty damn manly.

Well how about with a new chain?  Say a big manly one, or a ball chain (as in like dogtags)?

It's an question of proportions.  A heavier chain, especially a ball chain, might just be a very good choice for you.

If you really like the Mars bead, it might be more masculine looking (and cheaper) to put it on a shorter leather or rubber strand, instead of a long and dangling chain..


Dallas, you're a funny man!

Hey Beo,

Great topic question to ask the guys here.

Hate to say it, but is does look feminine to me personally.

Also, a ball hanging from a necklace will swing, and you can potentially hit yourself in the mouth when involved in activities...possibly chipping a tooth.

I am an RN - wore a Littman stethoscope around my neck for 20 years.  I cannot tell you how many times I inadvertantly hit myself in the mouth or teeth.  Makes me leary to see this type of necklace.

Additionally, if you watch any C&W videos, you will see the stylists dressing these male C&W artists in deep V-neck T-shirts with tons of necklaces.  Everytime I see these guys dressed like this wearing all that neck jewelry, it kind of turns my stomach....and does not look very masculine to me personally...but then, I do not care for tatoos either, and may possibly be 'dating' myself.

If you are going to wear a necklace, wear a heavy chain style.  Masculine - and always contemporary.  Good luck!

Not that I know much about what is manly, but where I come from men don't wear visible necklaces, period.

Really?  Didn't you say you're from Jersey?

Ha ha!
I live in western Jersey, thank god.
None of that here.

"Closed on Thanksgiving Day"

It's not even Halloween, and...I'm already seeing a lot of internet "business" posts about retailers not opening on Thanksgiving Day, and a bunch on which store will be open on Thanksgiving Day.  That's the US Thanksgiving Day.Anybody else old enough to remember when the retailers open on Thanksgiving were liquor stores and Standard Oil stations?  I mean in states without blue laws.See More
