People wear jewelry for a number of reasons. However, you are often told by family, friends and fashion magazines on what to wear, and what not to wear, during certain times of the year or with certain wardrobe. While it is always advisable to take precautions on how you wear certain jewelry when doing activities where the items might become damaged or cause you physical harm, there are times when you should feel happy about wearing whatever you want without the criticism from others.
Be Comfortable with Your Jewelry
If you feel happy wearing your favorite ring, necklace and bracelet, then go ahead and place it on. Jewelry can be a comfort to your mind and emotions, especially if someone special gave you those items. Even if the jewelry causes you a bit of sadness and nostalgia because it was a family heirloom from someone who has passed on, holding on to those memories and honoring your loved one can be beneficial to the heart and soul.
Wearing Jewelry that Fits
Certain pieces of jewelry fit different ways for different people. So you should always try to size it right. Rings can be especially tricky. Even if you size it right so that it can fit your finger, the width of the band and shape of the settings can cause the metal to pinch or cut into your skin. Always try a ring on and see how it feels. The same goes for necklaces and earrings. You don’t want something that is too long or too short that can make you feel uncomfortable the longer that you wear the item.
Once you have a general idea of the characteristics of the jewelry that are the most comfortable for you to wear, then you will have an easier time shopping for those items. This is especially true when doing online shopping, as you can’t try on the items before you buy them.
