    I have a signet ring, but it isn't a sovereign, which I agree look dire. The word "chav" springs to mind, along with an episode of the Royle Family where one is given as an 18th birthday present to Anthony.

    Jonathan has a Liverpool signet ring, which brought him a bit of stick from a couple of Arsenal supporters on the train on his way into work on Saturday evening . . . until he uttered the magical words: "Bolton Wanderers" ;)

    Tackier than tackety boots... Have always hated them, and those ridiculous identity bracelet things. Not sure about men in jewellery anyway, although a nice understated earring can look cool. Sometimes. Depends on the man.

    I confiscate them daily from lads and lassies. Obviously wearing one huge ring on each finger is soooooooooo classy!! Some even wear 2 sovvy rings on each finger and wrap sellotape around the back so it fits. Luuuuvly!! All I can say is I'm glad my school have a no jewellery policy else the kids wouldn't be able to grip their pens.
  10. they are truly awful!! im dressing up as a chav for our christmas concert and im thinking of getting one to wear but i dont think i could cope wearing one, it sends shivers down my spine!!!

    So...........which one exactly do you class as tacky?

    Yes I wear one on each finger whilst giving a one-finger salute to everyone I know. I also wear rockport tracksuits and burberry caps, and on my nights off, I steal cars and race them.

    Oh wait, thats not me, its Michael Carroll, so-called "King Of Chavs" :oops:

    Jimmy Carr's new dvd says something along the lines of... "Men with an earring in their right ear meant they were gay, if it was in the left meant your name was Wayne and you lived on a council estate!"

    I'll stop now.

    Andy, just remembering his girlfriend's birthday at stupid o'clock oops!

    And if girls wore an ankle chain on your left ankle it meant you were a prostitute, and if you wore two earrings in one ear it meant you were a lesbian...
    Was never quite sure about that whole issue. It only means something to those who think they know what it means. If you follow...

    Rings like that automatically make me think of chavs. I see people walking round town with 2 on each finger :eek: They look so tacky it's unbelievable. The worst thing is they think they look good!!

    I've got a soveriegn ring that my Dad bought me for my 21st. I'm probably the least 'Chav' like person around. I don't wear it all the time and I've got quite big hands, so it doesn't look too stupid.

    'A' Sovereign ring - i.e. just the one - may or may not be tacky, according to taste. Your choice.

    A handful, I feel, is a knuckleduster, and should be treated as such. A friend of mine was hospitalised after being assaulted - part of the evidence against one of the accused was the imprints of 2 sov rings and 1 'skull & x-bones' ring which could be seen in the bruises on the victim's face.

    There's jewelry, and there's weaponry.... :(
