What Type of Jewelry Can Be Worn With a Uniform?

Jewelry are fashion accessories that make people look good or according to some people, it brings out their beauty. Please note that jewelry are made from a wide range of materials, such as gold, silver, bronze, platinum, and also precious gemstones like diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, as well as other semi-precious stones like pearls, beads, and even materials like wood, bone, or glass.

Some organizations, especially organizations that wear uniforms, usually regulate the type of jewelry staff members of the organization are permitted to wear when they are on duty.

This is important because if everybody is allowed to put on whatever jewelry they have, some people that are addicted to jewelry might go overboard with it. In this article, we will look at some of the jewelry employees in organizations that wear uniforms are permitted to wear when they are on duty.

Please note that different organizations have different types of jewelry that they permit, hence the type of jewelry that is allowed by one organization might not be allowed in another organization.

Types of Jewelry That Can be Worn With a Uniform

  1. Necklaces

One of the commonest and of course decent jewelry that are allowed by organizations is necklaces. Necklaces are a piece of jewelry that is worn on the neck and can be worn by both females and males.

The fact that necklaces are not usually too conspicuous means that it is not going to draw any attention when people who are wearing uniforms wear them to work. Necklaces can be made from different types of precious materials such as gold, silver, bronze, platinum, wood, copper, and beads et al.

  1. Earrings

Another piece of jewelry that can be worn with a uniform and is generally accepted by all organizations is earrings. Although there are some religious denominations that don’t wear earrings, but there are no organizations that prevent their staff members that wear uniforms from wearing earrings.

Earrings are usually worn by females on their earlobes, but in recent times it is common for both males and females to wear earrings not just on their earlobes but also on their nose (nose ring) or on any part of their body.

  1. Rings

Rings are yet another type of jewelry that can be worn with a uniform and is generally accepted by all organizations. The fact that rings serve as a symbol that shows that someone is married or engaged shows that no organization can stop its staff members from wearing them.

Although some job functions can prevent a uniformed staff from wearing a ring while conducting such a function, but no one can stop you from wearing a ring if the ring will not interfere with your job. Jobs like carrying out the surgery, handling certain delicate lab operations, and doing even certain sports may need you to remove your rings.

  1. Bracelets

Another piece of jewelry that may be worn by people who wear uniforms is a bracelet. Basically, bracelets are worn on the wrist, it could be the right or left wrist and people are at liberty to wear multiple bracelets at a time. Although bracelets can be worn by people who wear uniforms, some organizations restrict their employees from wearing them. But generally, if the bracelets are decently worn, it might not raise any eyebrows.

  1. Brooches

If there is any piece of jewelry that can be generally accepted across the board, then it must be brooches. Brooches are a form of jewelry that is pinned on dresses, blouses, suits, coats, caps, hats et al. Interestingly, most corporate organizations have their own brooches that carry their log and they encourage their employees to wear them as a means to promote and brand the company.

In recent years, brooches have regained popularity as fashion accessories, allowing organizations and employees who wear uniforms to freely express their personal style and to also add unique touches to their uniforms.

  1. Pendants

Another piece of jewelry that can be worn by employees who wear uniforms at work is pendants. Just like brooches, corporate organizations can have their organizations’ logo or symbol printed on their pendant.

Although most people that wear pendants usually wear pendants that symbolize their religion, culture, or even for remembering their loved ones, some organizations even have their own designed pendants and they encourage all their staff members to wear them. Basically, a pendant is a piece of jewelry hanging ornament that is attached to either a necklace or any part of a cloth.

In conclusion,

It is important to note that even though most organizations don’t have a clear-cut HR policy that prevents their staff members from wearing jewelry, it will be nice for you to reach out to the HR of your organization to clarify their stands on what type of jewelry are allowed in the organization. With that, it is easier for you to make a decision on adding jewelry as part of your fashion style.
