I still wear a bracelet on a few occasions that my ex got me. The bracelet is pretty and that’s honestly the only reason I wear it. (seriously, dude was a d-bag)
Does anyone else wear jewelry from their exes? I have a feeling DH will think it’s weird if I ever tell him…

I voted yes, I was in a 12 year relationship and we were very generous to each other and I have several gold pieces, silver, and jade. So I am still going to wear my jewerly and my FI hasnt asked me who gave it to me it has never come up.
I love jewerly and I have kept jewerly from every relationship that I ever had. I have given some of the older pieces to my daughters. I did give back the engagement rings.

No, but none of it was all that nice since I’ve been with my FI since HS. I donated all of it

I do.. I have a diamond eternity band that my ex gave me, i wear it as a rhr, and a pair of diamond ear rings too. FI has never mentioned it, but i think he knows i just love diamonds, there is no sentimentality there lol. He’s more than welcome to replace them though if it does bother him hahaha.

I got a gold, diamond, and pearl necklace for christmas one year from an ex. I still wear it here and there, but I basically picked it out and it’s made from good materials so I don’t want it to just sit in my jewelry box…

@MrsTillerResq: No…that would upset my SO way too much. I don’t even keep my old jewellery from my ex in the box with the rest of my stuff. Come the think of it, I should probably just throw it all out.

I have a pair of earrings given to my by an EX that I still wear from time to time. Then again, FI and I are not super sentimental about things (he doesn’t care what ring I wear on my finger, as long as there is something there to show I am taken lol)

I used to!
My ‘highschool sweetheart’ gave me a ring (that he found.. he didn’t buy it.. it wasn’t worth anything and had no sentimental value) and I really liked it.
It was one of the only yellow gold rings I owned and I liked to wear it.
I told FI that I would stop wearing it when I got an engagement ring, and I did!
It wasn’t weird.
However – I have had other jewellery from an ex that DID have sentimental value… so I sold it.

Yep. I have a bracelet an ex gave to me and I think it’s beautiful, so I still wear it occasionally. FI knows it’s from an ex and doesn’t care at all.

Yuck, no. Then again, he bought me shitty jewelry, so…I sold it ASAP.

@MrsTillerResq: I sold it all from my ex-FI and am using the money towards my wedding to my new FI, lol. I loved some of it (obviously, as I picked it and wore it for 9 years), but my new FI found it disrespectful. I have all new stuff from him now anyway!

Nope! His cheap ass never bought me any jewelry. However his mother bought me a nice simple necklace that I occasionally wear but if it was from him I would have tossed it.

My ex husband had a custom necklace made for me with the gold & diamond from his fathers Shriners ring and I wear it every day. It’s lovely and it’s very unique and very “me” (it’s a circle pendant with a girl in kink pigeon pose with the diamond below her).
I love it. Dh asked me not to wear it at our wedding and I didn’t but otherwise I wear it constantly.

I used to have a lot of jewlery ex’s and would wear the pieces as I desired… until we got robbed and all of that was gone in a poof!
I never felt the need to tell DH where the pieces came from and which I bought or were gifted from other people.

I don’t have any jewelry from an ex, but if I did, I wouldn’t have any problem wearing it. It is just a thing; it wouldn’t have a sentimental value attached to it once we weren’t together anymore.
