usually use my spare tiara, so as the other one doesn't get damaged from the chlorine!



Are you kidding? Me too! I only wear my spare tiara when I swim. I keep all my other jewelry in my hair...

If it is a pool party, I wear jewelry and even makeup. I want to look nice, and more often than not, I am just by the pool not in it. Now when we are at the water park, nope! I am on the rides and in the water the entire time, so I don't wear any jewelry.

I don't wear much, if any, jewelry on a regular basis. Don't know why I'd put some on specially to get in the pool!

Plus - we swim at the Y. It's hardly a see-and-be-seen kind of crowd. If we were members at a country club or going to swim at a fancy house party (which would require me to know someone who owns a fancy house), then it might be different.

I wear mostly white gold and silver jewelry, so no, I don't wear any of it in a pool or spa.

Chlorine is the enemy of white gold because of the added alloys (could be Copper, Nickel, Zinc and/or Palladium). Stress corrosion can occur and weaken the prongs and stone settings, causing the prongs to break off.

Silver without rhodium plating will discolor in swimming pools and spas with heavy concentrations of chlorine.

Add heat to the chlorine (such as in hot tubs/spas) and you have a recipe for disaster.

Yellow gold (other than 24K) jewelry could be mixed with copper, silver, palladium, zinc, nickel or other metals - so it will overall hold up better, but will not be completely impervious to damage with long term exposure to chlorine and heat.


All the above my opinion/experience only. Your Milage May Very.


So - no. No jewelry near water for me.

I have a couple small necklaces that can get wet and look cute with my swimsuits, so yeah. At events I vend I might be in a vintage swimsuit for part of it and I will accessorize those more elaborately because I will be more lounging than swimming. And I never take off my wedding ring...its a plain Platinum band, it can take it.

now that I live at the beach I did make the permanent switch to waterproof mascara. Thats just knowing your surroundings.


Living and loving on Island time!

Another one who does not wear jewelry in the pool.

I think Annabella was suggesting hat she wears jewelry like earrings and necklaces that don't get wet because she is not actually submerging her head in the water. No?
