I want to buy a Green Peridot ring off of ebay. I thought it looked very aesthetic looking and I can get it for a fantastic price. Then someone in my family told me it was a female ring and it would be stupid for me to a wear a female ring. Well, quite frankly, I do not like the look of the men's version.
Honestly, I find rings unisex. The so called "female rings" look nicer (to me). I was told people would think I was a cross-dresser or gay. Well, I am not gay, in fact, I am quite muscular and masculine looking -- 5-11 male benching nearly 300 lbs! I am turned on by women not men! I have nothing against gays, however. Is it really so bad if I were to wear a ring that (because of the culture) is intended for females to wear?!! Heck, the middle ringer only means f**k you because we "give meaning to it." It is the culture that defines many things.
As for the reason for me wanting to wear the ring I will not say. But it relates to finding the truth.
That's what I am thinking. From my perspective, rings are unisex. Plus, I can get a really good deal on this ring. It's 80% off whereas the men's is not. And the ring looks more aesthetic to me and has a better shape in my opinion.
Ask yourself this: do you have the balls to endure possible barbs from friends teasing you about your purty girly ring and endure such barbs WITHOUT feeling the urge to 1. run the bathroom for a good cry, 2. run for the nearest tub of chocolate ice cream and spoon and/or 3. tell them all what jealous skanks they are? If your answer is yes to all three, then I doubt there's any reason to fear potential feminizing effects from the ring.
Of course, if you do get the ring and put it on and suddenly feel like bursting out in a resounding rendition of "I Feel Pretty", then you might consider trading it in for a traditional man's ring.
1. Both my kids were born in August and I love this peridot ring. 2. Johnny Depp wears his girlfriend's engagement ring and rocks it, the dude can rock anything! 3. Most jewelry is either symbolic or some sort of statement piece. In other words, you decide what you like, you choose if you want to wear it and you decide if you want to explain it (if even necessary). 4. I say, make sure it fits your 'middle' finger, it can come in 'handy'. All goofy puns intended 5. It will certainly be a possible conversation piece and you will find out what kind of people are in your circle. We've already seen the interesting peeps it has stirred to post on this thread. We can certainly not please everyone (duh)....human culture will never cease to amaze me (smh).
Ok, all that said.... email me the link, I want one!
Lol, who cares !! if you like it, you buy it rings don't have male, female category, it's just that some are pretty and some are plain, people say those pretty rings as female and plain ones as male. Don't mind them, just think of them as retarded people
This is a nice ring...just don't carry a man bag while wearing it. I know this from experience. You have very flamboyant taste, and there is nothing wrong with that. I have a lot of Metro-sexual men in my family. You rock that ring.
Sorry to say. But from a first view I found this ""womanly"" enough to not to wear. But if you don't care what others think, then buy it and wear it. Or you could buy and keep it, then no one would mind. Like me and my father did with our Honda Car, we just keep it. Take it out twice or thrice an year
Metrosexsual men are very manly. They are into working out. They like fit women, and they stand their ground. They just have flashy taste. There is nothing wrong with that. I’m just glad the ring does not look like something that Liberace would have worn, if so I would have kept my comment to myself. Liberace's rings were huge and very womanly looking however, to each his own I say. Do as you see fit young blood.
It's a very delicate ring, and from the way you describe yourself, you're an absolute hunk!
I don't think it's necessary to think in terms of 'for female and not male'. Think of a hugely built woman carrying a dainty little purse. Or Grace Jones wearing a floaty, flouncy frock.
I'm not a great fan of rings on men, anyway. But I love to see a man wearing earings--an identical one in each ear. A man looks great with small hoops or simple studs to accentuate his masculine facial contours. However, the effect is totally lost if he wears a chandalier design, or maybe plastic clip-ons with polka dots ...
On the other hand, I see nothing wrong with describing objects in terms of masculine and feminine, and 'feminine' is an adjective I'd use for your ring. That, of course, doesn't mean you can't wear it. I hope you feel free to wear whatever you like!
Sometimes I think you speak a foreign language. I get the gist... most of the time, but the straight translation doesn't come through. Funny thing is, everyone else seems to get what you're talking about which tells me *I am the moron. Sadly, most situations in my life end with that realization.
I have a male friend who sometimes gets a little confused when it comes to 'for men' or 'for women'. For example, he wore a large watch by Guess for a long while without realizing it was designed for women, and he sometimes wears floral fragrances, thinking they're for men. But I can't imagine even him wearing Kain 360's ring. It's just so unmistakably 'for women'.
I just don't get how a decision to wear or not wear a ring has generated 4 pages of text. If someone decides to switch from plain to cherry chapstick, are we going to analyze it with as much verbosity? If we discuss the chapstick situation, we'd better include as many pics as this thread had.
I am sure I have started many a shallow thread myself... one on croutons, but to be fair, ppl called me on it and I couldn't argue with them. You did ask in the title if it was a big deal, on that note, I weighed in.
I write about subjects where the products are often healing stones and crystals found in jewelry, and I think the ring is a little on the feminine side. I do understand that men's rings are really bulky though. I know a good site, Healingcrystals.com, where you may be able to find a ring that is a little more masculine looking with a peridot. Otherwise, I say if you like it, wear it.
I really wanted let you know that there is no issue at all with you wanting to wear a ring. Remember that you can't please anyone no matter what you wear or what you do, or how you look for that matter. The only one you can please with relative simplicity is you. Wear that ring and enjoy it!
I think your family member is a little out of touch with today's world. Many guys that are secure in their sexuality wear things that have a questionable appearance. But maybe your ring doesn't actually look feminine to anyone but your one family member... and so what if it does.
A male friend of mine, for the first time ever, began working with a gay man two or three years back. He said something like - if he ever comes near me, I am going to... blah blah blah... just imagine to fill in the blanks.
I told him not to think that way, that gay people stick to their own as a rule. Just enjoy the chance to make a new friend instead... which he did. Today, still solidly male, he can easily enjoy wearing a pink T shirt or a purple watch strap. Never before would he have been able to. But some how working around a gay man made him more secure in his own sexuality.
I don't know how that worked. I tell you this so that you can see that what you dare wear that is out of the ordinary can actually illustrate a strong character. I think my friend looks sincerely male in his pink T!
Get the ring. Too often we are pressured into thinking this way. There is no shame in wearing something that makes you feel good. As long as it doesn't make others feel bad on purpose. I say buy it and wear it bro!
This has to do with the culture!!! How we define colors like pink as feminine or certain types of things like rings. The culture and society in general often defines what is considered masculine or feminine. Sociology generally will explain many aspects of this.
In some some societies there are certain hand gestures that send out the signal that someone is gay. The middle finger for example means nothing unless we humans give meaning to it. There is no intrinsic value to some things unless a creature/human give a meaning to it. Same thing with words...
If you have nothing good to say leave this page! You internet trolls are lost in a maze of moral relativism.
If the OP wants to wear a so-called woman's ring, so be IT. There are MORE IMPORTANT subjects to post on threads than this. There are very acute sociopolitical issues such as homelessness, poverty, crime, etc. than this subject. Thank you, Ms. Odenthal for addressing the issue. When I saw this thread, I thought what!
This is funny but interesting. But go ahead, dude. Wear what you want. I know of one Asian male celebrity (definitely not gay coz he got a family) who love to wear his wife's wristwatch right on his show.
According to young turks, a new line of sexy lingerie is being mass produced specifically for men that want to wear them. It's also interesting to note that the company making the undergarments are saying that...
To wear your wedding ring to work or not wear it to work is the question, and depending on what you're trying to accomplish, I believe I have the answers. Things are absolutely less Carol Brady and more real life...
As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like...
