What piece(s) of jewelry do you wear to work?

Tiny stud earrings and a watch. That is it. When it comes to wearing jewelry and being a nurse all I can think about is infection issues. Not only that, but, too much jewelry would just get in the way in my opinion.
Most facilities have policies regarding this issue anyway.

The NICU has strict hand jewelry guidelines. Whereas hanging earrings and necklaces might be a danger in adult areas (where disoriented/aggressive patients), in the NICU hand/wrist jewelry is is the problem. They do permit plain (no stones) wedding bands, no watches. I gave up on my wedding band when the area under it stayed broken out and peeling from constant handwashing, alcohol gelling and frequent glove use.
Studs and a watch anything else would just get in my way. I agree with previous posters
Earrings, a neck chain, a ring and a wristwatch.
Watch, earrings, wedding ring on left hand, mothers ring on right hand. I don't wear anything around my neck, too afraid of a patient grabbing it. The stones in my mothers ring are flat and small. I don't know why some nurses wear their engagement rings that sit very high and must have damage from all the gloves.
I guess I only specified what I don't wear, sorry. I would wear earrings but apparently my ears don't like any kind of metal. So all I wear a nice chain and my RNC pin on my badge.
Let me mention that I used to wear a watch when I worked with big people, we were all taught we needed one with a second hand to do vitals right?
One day I noticed my metal expansion band had not gotten covered by my glove.
Code brown, need I go on?
Thank God it was a cheap Wal-Mart watch!
Watch, small stud earring, sometimes a wedding band.
I wear a wedding band, studs and my Miraculous Medal.
