Guy Fieri Jewelry Line Makes Us Question His Taste

When I think of Guy Fieri, I think absolute craziness. The spiky-haired culinary rock star has made a name for himself hosting foodtastic shows like Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and Tailgate Warriors on Food Network. Now, he's taking on a different, more dainty venture: the jewelry business.

Fieri has teamed up with Room 101 Jewelry and deals website Open Sky for his "off-da-hook" line. Featuring items like a set of cuff links for $75, dog tags for $75, and chain bracelets for a cool $175, the line most definitely reflects Guy's over-the-top personality.

I can get over the hilarious fact that foodie Guy Fieri has his own jewelry line. What I can't get over is how gaudy all of it is. If I was to see any man wearing this sort of stuff, I'd run in the other direction immediately.

Men wearing jewelry has always been a tough idea for me to swallow. I'm more of a simplistic gal, I guess. Seeing a guy rock a classic chain his father gave him, that's sweet. A wedding ring? Of course, that's totally fantastic in my book. However, a blingtastic dog tag necklace a la Guy Fieri is just unnecessary. Period.

I was under the impression that this stuff got left behind in high school, no? In fact, these "off-da-hook" pieces make me think of something my 14-year-old angsty neighbor would wear from Hot Topic. If any man I was remotely interested in was to put on one of these chain bracelets and was not completely joking, I'd totally rethink our situation.

I respect Guy for trying something new, I really do. However, I just can't get over the tackiness of it all. Stick to selling deluxe meat packs, Guy. I think you'll be better off.

What do you think of Guy's jewelry line? What about men wearing jewelry in general?
