If I really liked it, why not? Usually the jewelry bought by an ex would have been picked out by me anyway. 

Girl how hard did you have to squint to see a piece of jewelry he bought her in that picture? Lmao!

janedw :  I still wear jewlery bought for me by exes. 

Unless it was an e-ring, I don’t get what the big deal is. It was a gift, and if I liked it, of course I’m going to keep it.

I didn’t really like any of the jewelry my exH bought me, but if I liked it, I would continue to wear it.

I don’t have any jewellery from an ex, nor do I wear  much jewellery in general so I can’t answer this question with regards to what I *do*, but honestly, if I was the jewellery-wearing type and I had a beautiful necklace or other piece of fine jewellery, I’d probably like to wear it on occassion, regardless of where/who it came from. The only jewellery I think is off-limits after a break up is an engagement ring. That should be given back and/or sold.

I have a pair of diamond earrings I received from an ex, the one I was dating when I met my husband. I wore them for years until my husband bought me a large pair. Now my daughter wears them. It’s just rocks/jewelry. And it never bothered my husband that I wore the earrings, he’s too secure for that.

However, I did trade in my wedding band for a pair of diamond earrings and I wear them every day.

Dear Bee, it really depends on each person. I don’t typically assign that much meaning to items, so I sometimes wear jewelry/accesories that were given to me by my former boyfriends just because they’re nice/valuable items that I love (the look/style/design, etc). Some of those items were gifted to me years ago that I no longer even think about the fact that they were given to me by an ex. I just enjoy them for what they are: nice pieces of jewelry/fashion accesories. My husband doesn’t care about that, either. 

P.S.: How did you even come across a picture of your husband’s ex? Are you guys still in the same social circles? Were you merely “spying” on her?

Sparkles are sparkles! I don’t have any jewellery from an ex but I’d probably keep/wear it if I liked it.

I pawned everything my first husband gave me because I was in pain looking at it at the time.  I kept everything from my second husband (we split amicably) and even kept my e-ring, replacing the diamond with a sapphire so I could wear it as a RHR.   I had the diamond set in a necklace I’ll eventually gift my daughter.  But I wear that too.  It’s just stuff,  I don’t feel sentimental about it.  But I love jewelry.

janedw :  Just saw your update. Was it an engagement ring? If not, I don’t see an issue with it. If it was, though, she shouldn’t be wearing it… buuuut there isn’t any point in making a big deal out of it. Personally, I think you’re probably better off not following her on social media.
