I think my job really influences jewelry. Since I’m an educator working in a non-profit, I do not wear my engagement most of the time. I sometimes do not wear my wedding band. When I’m just working in our clinic, it’s easier to not wear my engagement ring because it rips gloves. When I’m teaching in schools or in our clinic, I definitely feel free to wear other jewelry – I dont’ wear a ton of earrings, but have a nice selection of necklaces. I do go teach at least once a week at a detention center or jail, and it is suggested that I not wear anything of value or could be used against me. While nothing bad has happened, I tryto remember to take off earrings or necklaces.

I am an accountant. I don’t think jewelry is affected by my profession at all.

MrsAL2012: I’m not in law, but I do work in an office. I wear all of this at one time every day all day and have never had an issue. The purple lines aren’t there, but I realized after the fact that I didn’t really want those showing online…anyway, I work in a mostly business casual, with some business formal. And I’ve never had anyone say, you’re wearing too much, and I think the fact that I wear 7 pieces of jewelry at one time is a good bit.

I’m actually in a pretty unique situation. I’m a soon-to-be (!!) marriage and family therapist, so it’s actually in my favor to have a ring. People trust you more counseling them on their marriage when they can see that you’re married!

I’m going into healthcare and anticipate not being able to wear my rings on my fingers much of the time. I realize this isn’t applicable for court, but I am super excited about conversion necklaces to hang rings on while working. I feel your pain about needing to change your jewelry for work, though! 🙂

mexicalijennie: I’m French Canadian too and I agree that our culture is less conservative 🙂
I work at a middle/high school as a teacher and I love planning out outfits and being creative with my accessories. My grade 7-8 kids notice my attire all the time because they still pay lots of attention to their teachers at that age. I even got voted as “best dressed female teacher” in the yearbook one year, haha! We are downtown in a large city, which might influence the freedom in our dress code.Teachers at my school are pretty young and dress in creative ways, following fashion. Our students are expressive with their clothes as well, so it’s all good.
I work crazy hours, every evening and on weekends so it’s a good thing I get to enjoy this small pleasure which is to express myself through clothes and jewelery. I wear my ering with 2 stacked bands, two rhr’s, earrings and a pendant, usually.

Before I got laid off I was a PSW and we weren’t allowed to wear jewelry of any kind. It was even encouraged to keep hair CUT short – not pulled back, but cut. I didn’t wear it at work because I simply didn’t want it to get dirty, but I wear it when I play sports and I don’t care, lol. No ref has carded me yet, but I’m sure it’ll happen.
