I say this as a girl, despite my username, I think the same rules apply to jewelry as they do for watches and purses. Don't wear things that are obviously more expensive than what a senior female on the team wears.

Thanks! In regards to quantity, how much jewelry is too much? Is wearing a few bracelets or rings fine (like 2-3 each) or is it too much?

In my view wearing too much jewellery (e.g. several bracelets stacked) does not look professional. However 1-2 rings and bracelets is fine.

I usually wear a rolex datejust and cartier ring to the office and have never gotten any negative remarks for it. Bought a cartier bracelet with my first year-end bonus and planning to wear it as well. I am the only female in my team and I believe people do not really pay attention / care much.

Big Banker Brand, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Holy shit even the analysts in banking make like $200k now. No one gives a fuck if you wear a $5k bracelet or watch. And besides you're either probably a diversity hire that has never seen money and can finally afford nice things or a nepotism hire that was already rich. No one cares

Don't think anyone would blink at jewelry that's a few thousand. Pretty sure you weren't planning on wearing the Emma chamberlain's met gala Cartier choker anyway, an Alhambra pendant is fine+ love bracelet is fine. I wear some more fun pieces and layer rings/chains but style it more subdued at the office. I'm kind of rough of my jewelry so lean towards the mejuri types anyway.

I wear earrings on the smaller side (diamond studs, small gold hoops). Bracelet stack is two thin dainty chains (one Van Cleef) + one 6k bracelet with smaller diamonds. No one blinks. Most teams are guys anyways and they never notice

Do most female analysts wear such pieces? Or do you find them more common at the Associate and above level?
