Excellent Earrings For Men
Ear jewelry has been 'in' for men since the days of pirates. Sadly, many modern men have lost touch with their bejeweled roots, aside from those few brave alternative souls who pierce everything that looks like it might possible be able to be pierced. A happy medium can be struck however, and a man can look both business like, dependable, trustworthy and all round presentable whilst wearing earrings, depending on how he wears them. He can also look eccentric, attractive, interesting, charming, alternative and a great deal many things more desirable that traditional and dependable.
Some people say that an earring in the right ear means that the wearer is gay, and indeed, in the past that may well have been true, but these days you're allowed to be gay in most civilized parts of the world, so the need for secretive signs declaring one's homosexuality has diminished nowadays. Still, if you're concerned about getting the wrong ear pierced, the left ear is the arbitrarily decided upon convention for heterosexuality.
What types of earrings are considered acceptable for men? Well, in a corporate environment, you might be able to get away with matt black studs. One must keep in mind that outrageous earrings are often associated with those wild hippies that so enjoy thronging public spaces with their funny smelling tobacco, so anything too brightly colored, or colored red, yellow and green, may draw unwanted attention from superiors and cost you that promotion to the upper echelons of dreary management.
Traditionally conservative kinds of male earrings include small silver hoops and small dull studs. Traditionally awesome kinds of male earrings include larger hoops a la Pirates of the Caribbean, sparkly diamonds a la Rue Paul, and anything else that catches a man's eye. If one was the type, one could subvert the idea of the traditional single manly piercing in the left ear by having one's left ear pierced and then wearing an ornate, sparkly and all together frou frou earring in it. That'll show those squares down in squareville. Damn squares. Always ruining everyone's fun with their rules and conventions, man.
Although earrings are often overlooked by men, they're actually a very cheap way to add some style to your general appearance. Earrings can be found for just a few dollars in markets all over the world, and even in jewlery stores, you can pick yourself up some pretty hot ear 'bling' (dear god, what an awful, awful expression,) for very little money.
Claim your heritage, express your masculinity, your femininity, your sheer excellence, with earrings.
