I believe my words were, "entirely unobjectionable for a man to wear on nearly any occasion." I don't think cuff links qualify, given that I (like a significant percentage of men) sometimes wear polo shirts (no cuff link opportunities there), or long sleeve shirts without a suit or sport coat (and I don't care to wear cuff links without a suit or sport coat). Cuff links are more properly jewelry which can be worn on some (relatively formal) occasions.Cufflinks are also part of typical male jewellery
While I own a cell phone, I've never worn it. Sometimes it sits in a coat pocket, or maybe in a briefcase, or not infrequently it gets left in the car. I certainly don't regard it as an item of jewelry.And then a nice phone
I suppose if one needs eyeglasses, they could be thought of as jewelry, although I'm not sure a medical (in this case, visual) aid really qualifies on this count. I mean, if I undergo hip replacement surgery, I don't think the cane I'd use during my recovery would constitute a jewelry item. If I'm undergoing orthodontia, I don't really consider my braces to be jewelry - and they'd even be metallic. (Please, nobody feel compelled to bring up braces' bastard cousin, "Grillz." If you seriously contend that it's unobjectionable for a man to wear Grillz on most any occasion, you and I lack sufficient common ground to fruitfully discuss anything.)glasses
I'll grant you that I do wear sunglasses sometimes. Hardly "on nearly any occasion" though - wearing sunglasses indoors, or at night, has always struck me as a ridiculous practice. (And before you get all pedantic on me, fine, I acknowledge that a miniscule percentage of men might need to wear sunglasses indoors and at night for ophthalmological reasons.)
Carried (not really worn) by a rather limited percentage of men.lighter
Okay, fair enough. I routinely carry around a fountain pen. True, most men regard pens purely as cheap, disposable tools, not as jewelry. But then, most men probably regard wristwatches nearly the same way. So fine, for many men, a nice pen is potentially a form of jewelry which is basically acceptable in a wide variety of situations.
But I wouldn't say that I wear my pen.
Okay, I guess for the minority of men who use money clips, they could be seen as jewelry. Still not really something that's worn, strictly speaking.money clip
Don't own one, nor do the vast majority of men own one. As opposed to wristwatches, which are owned by a majority of American men. And again, one doesn't typically wear an iPad. I suppose even if you clipped it to your belt or something, it would still be an item which you're carrying around, as opposed to wearing.iPad...
Perhaps. But I seriously doubt it.
I still maintain that for the average man, in most circumstances, only a wedding ring and a wristwatch amount to jewelry which he's likely to wear without attracting any particular attention. He may make regular use of various tools and devices which could plausibly be selected with an eye toward fashion or appearance, but there's a fundamental difference between wearing an item of jewelry, and carrying a tool or device.
