Ok, so I’m thinking, if I have to ask the question, then I probably already know the answer, but here it goes. I’m looking for jewelry to wear on my wedding day. I’ve gone back and forth between something blingy, which I love, to something elegant and simple. I just have a hard time spending $100 or more on costume jewelry (statement necklace) that I will most likely never wear again. The pratical side of me says stay with simple, ie. a strand of pearls. I currently own a very nice strand of pearls. The problem is my first husband gave them to me…
Now, normally I wouldn’t have a problem with this and have worn them on occasion. The question is, it is bad joo joo to consider wearing them on my wedding day?

Honestly, if DH didn’t have a problem with it, it sounds like something I’d do.
But I’m also in the minority in that I wouldn’t have minded a ring from a pawn shop (mine wasn’t, but if it was and he’d gotten a great deal, who cares?!) because I don’t really believe in ‘bad joo joo’ lol.
Unless it has some special significance to you, it’s just a thing. A material thing.

I don’t see the big deal with wearing something your ex gave you.
I still have pieces of jewelry my ex
gave me.. they are just beautiful pieces that I like to wear. They don’t MEAN anything.

No way, lol. Not for your wedding. Just a night out, sure. I still wear jewelry from ex’s, but it’s just bad juju to get married in it, I think.

I normally don’t have a problem with wearing all the pretty jewelry my ex has given me. FI doesn’t have a problem with it either, although I haven’t asked him about the pearls for the wedding day. He’d probably be fine as we are both very logical and practical people. It’s just a small side of me thinks that is just…weird.

If was to anything other than your wedding I would say yes. But I think it would be in bad taste to wear something from an ex to get married to someone else

@Sweetnsassy: I think the title of your post, “If I have to ask…” is your answer. 🙂
