I recently cleaned out my jewelry box and found a beautiful ring that I'd evidently made the point of hiding in the back a few months earlier. As soon as I picked up that silver and diamond ring, I was brought back to my one-year anniversary with my ex-boyfriend. I thought about it for a moment- the ring, the day he gave it to me- and after some brief hesitation, I put it on my pointer finger.
I glanced over to my ring finger where there sat a gold ring with an amethyst stone from my current boyfriend of over a year. Honestly, it felt weird. But I liked the way the rings looked.
I thought about the strangeness of the situation again, and then decided to keep the rings on. After all, it's just jewelry, and it looked good!
That being said, I know some people could never imagine wearing something given to them by an ex, especially when you have a new SO. Or, maybe having a new partner justifies your ability to wear something from an old boyfriend or girlfriend.What do you think? Is it okay to wear jewelry, or even clothing, given to you by an ex? Does the answer change if you're in a new relationship?
