Do you wear your jewelry around the house?

Since I retired, I only seem to wear my rings and bracelets when I am going somewhere. Sometimes if I am going shopping alone, I don't wear anything 'good' for fear I will be a target.

 

Hubby made the comment yesterday that "Why did I want that Pandora bracelet for our Anniversary, when  never wear it."  I have worn it, but probably only 3 times.

 

Maybe I should wear my jewelry everyday unless  am out gardening or scrubbing floors....

Re: Do you wear your jewelry around the house?

I always wear my gold and diamond wedding ring and usually wear earrings around the house. I'm also retired so my "uniform" is made up of light jeans plus a pretty tee in summer and heavy jeans with a sweater in winter. I wore jewelry to work but now my only jewelry opportunities occur when I go out to dinner or when I go on vacation. I stopped buying expensive pieces a few years ago since I have more than enough.

I wear my rings, watch, earrings and usually a necklace every day unless I am sick.  I put a bracelet on if I am going out for lunch, shopping, dinner, or something special.

Re: Do you wear your jewelry around the house?

funny that this topic came up because I do wear jewelry everyday when I'm home, and I wondered if anyone else did that! I hardly go out, and I have lots of jewelry and love buying them. if I wore them only when I go out or save them for special occasions, they would be a waste of money. so I enjoy them everyday and that makes me happy 😊

I don't wear my jewelry around the house, only when I go out.

 

When I'm home, I'm usually gardening, cooking or cleaning and jewelry gets in the way.

 

ETA: I haven't worn a watch since the day I retired, just don't need to.

Around the house? Just my wedding band.

Actually, no. I keep saying I will - but, that has still remained to be seen... And, why? I do not know...

No but when I go out to lunch maybe three times a week, I do....I wear my Apple Watch to the gym to monitor my fitness output.  I wore mostly gold when I worked now I favor silver....so I am giving most of my gold to my niece if she ever gets a day off!  I'd like to see it used rather than sitting in my jewelry boxes.

I don't take my jewerly off at night -- only rings and big earrings.  So, I always have something on.  Sometimes I'll adjust according to my outfit or that day's activity, but, again, I'll probably have those items on until I adjust again.

Rarely wear jewelry anymore....and don't purchase it unless it has significant meaning.
