Aside from clipping a band pin or two onto my lapel on occasion, the only adornment that I sport is a watch and a wedding ring. It's not even a particularly fancy ring, just a plain gold band that I bought on my way home from work a couple of weeks before the wedding.
I know my non-bauble-wearing ways were a great disappointment to my mother-in-law. Having had two sons and no daughters, she was just itching for someone with whom to do girlie things. I wasn't much for recreational shopping either.
She never really gave up on trying to press pieces of her jewelry upon me - massive chunky rings and elaborate necklaces - but I had a hard time feigning enthusiasm for these gifts. I amassed a jewelry box full of never-worn pieces before she realized that she was never going to see her prized baubles dripping from my stubby fingers.
Fortunately, we then gave her a grand-daughter and the dance began anew.
