Think about it thoroughly.

Less Bling, More Metal
Wearing jewelry has been associated with rappers and rockers. Make your jewelry selection less about trying to outshine everyone else, pick ones that are completing to your outfit. Silver and gunmetal are easy to wear because they don’t attract too much attention. While gold will stand out no matter what, however be subtle with gold.
