Do you wear jewelry? If so, what do you usually wear on a regular day? If you don't, why don't you?


I do not wear jewelry. I've tried, but it either becomes a sensory nightmare for me, I get annoyed by it, or I just forget to wear it. I used to wear a locket for my late cat Willie, but I just kind of stopped wearing it. I often use necklaces as a fidget too so I've also broken a lot of necklaces.

I used to wear my wedding ring, but in my occupation, it was a hazard, so I stopped wearing it full time. Then, arthritis made my fingers swell to the point I had to cut it off to restore circulation. A couple of years ago, I took it to a jeweler to have it resized and repaired, so I now wear it for special occasions. I also have a ring that I wear for special occasions. It is gold, with a large star sapphire, flanked with two smaller sapphires. It belonged to an uncle, one of my father's younger brothers, who was killed almost exactly 79 years ago- June 25, 1945, to be precise. Other than that, I don't wear any jewelry.

I wear my wedding ring, watch and a pair of earrings so the holes don't close up every day.

I wear my wedding band and engagement ring on a daily basis (or a silicon ring if I'm doing something I'd worry would damage my regular rings).

Other jewelry like necklaces or bracelets mostly just on special occasions. Or if my children put them on me. I never wear earrings anymore. Once I moved from mostly gold to more nickel plated studs in late elementary, they started to bother my ears and I just decided to mostly stop wearing them rather than change earring types.

When I was still going into an office to work, I wore it into work every day but not anymore. The only thing I wear on a daily basis now is a watch.

I don't wear as much as I used to. My fingers are too big for my old rings now, and when I'm out socialising it's at kni groups, so wearing rings is impractical anyway. I do wear brooches and necklaces, although that's dependent on what clothes I'm wearing. If I'm wearing a colourwork jumper, for example, a necklace is going to detract from the design.

I no longer wear a wedding as it was always conflicting with jobs working around the house and cars. I wear a watch that has a rubber band so not the damage car finishes.

I have lots of diamonds and jewelry, but after losing a couple of diamonds years ago I only wear some on special occasions. I work mainly outside now and the dirt and rough usage of my hands is NOT good for jewelry! My hands are black when I come inside......

I wear my little stud or sleeper earrings everyday. I wear my "everyday" rings (wedding set and one other) whenever I leave the house except for work...I can't wear rings for work and I don't trust putting them on a chain or leaving them in my purse so I just leave them at home. I also don't wear my rings if I'm home...it's just annoying when you're cleaning and stuff. I hate the feeling of water trapped under the rings and they banged about. I used to wear a chain everyday, but it broke and I haven't fixed it or got another one...it's just not a priority. The only time I really accessorize with necklaces, bracelets and dinner rings or fancy earrings is for special occasions.

I wear my wedding band, a silicone ring, and gold hoops every day. I stopped wearing my 2 toe rings a few years ago and my necklace DH gave me on our wedding day when I had the clasp repaired and didn’t like how they closed the loop. I just never got around to taking it back by the jewelers. It could use an extender to sit a little longer too.

When i was younger i wore 5 rings, a necklace or two and anklet most days. Some i stopped wearing over time. Some stopped with having babies making it unpractical. Sometimes I want to wear more again; but it’s just not a priority right now.

I wear a gold ring on my right hand that I got from my mom - I think I could remove it if I wanted to, but it would require a lot of lotion, lol. It's not tight on the finger, just hard to get over the knuckle.

I also wear earrings, though I have more pairs of earrings than I would wear normally. And I often will wear a necklace; I have a bunch of necklaces as well but usually just switch between my two favorites.

Like others I am allergic to many metals. I can wear 18k, white gold and sterling silver. I now only wear my wedding band daily. If going out I may wear my engagement ring and very seldom my Diamond necklace as I am afraid I’ll loose it. I have ruby necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings but for some reason I have worn them in decades.

Sometimes. If I go out, I may wear my anniversary ring, or mom's wedding ring or my own. I like to mix metals. All my rings have to be small and sit low to my finger or they are going to really get on my nerves.The only thing that is almost a constant is a copper bracelet. Most people have a copper deficiency and don't know it. It turns their hair gray. I wish I had known sooner, because my hair has a little gray strands here and there. I'm pushing 60, so I guess it's not that bad, but it ain't great either.
