1. 2 questions here what is your most favourite piece of jewellery
    and what piece of jewellery would you never go out without wearing

    I thought about this tonight when l was in shower

    I never take off my wedding band (frightened l might lose it - plus would feel naked without it( and have a bracelet my parents gave me many years ago for my 21st - l love it

    This quesion is for all - ladies and gentlemen
    What jewelery do you love and wear etc - and maybe why

    Also l guess - does the wearing of it affect your nursing position ?

    Cheers Tookie

    Wedding band too, never take it off. Well I have to take it off on the ward of course, but then I feel naked.
    And my beautiful pearls. Necklace and earrings, wear them all the time!

    Wedding Band and Engagement Ring, I never never take them off! Next would be my watch...

    Otherwise...I alternate between necklaces, earring and bracelets... I always have 1 of each one.... but it depends what mood I'm in and what I'm wearing!

    I have a necklace with a cross that I only take off if I have to put on fancy jewelry for a special occasion other wise, I NEVER take it off. I always have on my earings and the bracelet that my husband gave me for christmas. I take my rings off every night, but I have to because if I don't my finger starts to get a rash and break down under the ring. However, I never leave the house without my rings or my watch.

    2 rings, 1 on each hand. Sadly I've got to remove one when I do clinicals as we're only allowed 1 ring. It will be traumatic, I'm sure... but the wedding ring is not coming off for anyone. I used to take it off (back when I only had 1 ring) occasionally but one time I lost it for several hours. I was utterly hysterical until Mister finally found it, and it's never been off my finger again.

    My wedding band is ever present and usually I have my opal earrings in, though now and then I might wear a different pair. I also like to wear a sparkly fun pin...a frog and a rooster are my favorites. Since I wear street clothes to work this is not a problem.

    I wear no jewelry (allergies to most metals, sigh). I do love to wear funky kids watches with elastic or plastic bands, though. But they go with my goofy scrubs. So far no problem...patients love it, most of my investigators think it's a hoot and the ones that don't, tolerate it...because I am very good at what I do.

    My Grandmother gave me a beautiful necklace heart with 2 lovebirds made out of amethyst. My Grandfather gave it to her when they were dating, the piece is probably close to 90 years old now and I cherish it more than anything.

    for me jewellry that I always wear...I always have a watch on. (currently wearing a Raymond Weil work) don't always wear my wedding band cause I am always working around the house and afraid to damage it or get my finger caught in power tools. I always have on my diamond stud earring. That is the only jewelry as a guy that I wear.
