Jewellery on the ski slopes: Do's and don'ts

Skiing and snowboarding are great ways to enjoy the winter weather and get some exercise. But what about jewellery? Can you wear it on the slopes?


  • Wear simple, understated pieces. You don't want to wear anything that is going to get caught on your clothes or equipment. A simple pearl pendant necklace or a pair of pearl studs is a good option.
  • Choose pieces that are made from durable materials. Gold, silver, and platinum are all good choices. Avoid wearing anything that is delicate or fragile.
  • Layer your jewellery. This is a great way to add some personality to your outfit. Just be sure that your layers are not too bulky or cumbersome.
  • Consider wearing a medical alert bracelet or necklace. This is important if you have any allergies or medical conditions.
  • Keep your jewellery safe. When you're not skiing or snowboarding, store your jewellery in a safe place.


  • Don't wear anything that is too loose. Loose jewellery can easily get lost or damaged.
  • Don't wear anything that is too tight. Tight jewellery can be uncomfortable and restrict your movement.
  • Don't wear anything that is made from non-durable materials. Costume jewellery is not a good choice for the slopes. It is likely to get damaged or lost.
  • Don't wear anything that is too flashy. You don't want to draw attention to yourself on the slopes.
  • Don't wear anything that is too expensive. You don't want to risk losing or damaging an expensive piece of jewellery.


  • If you're unsure about whether or not to wear a particular piece of jewellery, err on the side of caution and leave it at home.
  • If you do decide to wear jewellery on the slopes, be sure to take it off before you go swimming or hot tubbing.
  • Clean your jewellery regularly to remove dirt and grime.

By following these do's and don'ts, you can enjoy your ski or snowboard trip without worrying about your jewellery.
