I just wear earings and a watch.  I don't wear rings (even my wedding band) because I sanitize often and don't want that gunk in my jewelry.  Plus I remember reading that rings can harbor Covid......that's probably not true, but I just keep them off anyway.

I had my ears pierced back in about 1964 with the very stupid 'self-piercer' earrings they had then.  Basically you wore earrings with sharp points that gradually bore a hole in your ear.  Talk about the hard way to do it!


Any way, fast forward 40 years or more and yes, my holes did start to close up, especially in one ear.  I had always been a little sensitive to various metals, though, and sometimes they got irritated.


It's not an urban legend, since it happened to me.  Note that I was not wearing earrings every day for many years, but only when going out or 'dressing up', not just around home.  It got so that I could usually get my left earring in with only a little work, but the right it felt like I was punching a new hole in every time.  So, gradually I quit wearing them at all, or very seldom.


About 3 years ago I was walking around Wal-mart with time to waste as I was getting my oil changed, walked by the jewelry section and on a whim had my ears re-pierced.  Now I make sure to wear earrings several times a week, mostly when leaving the house.


If I don't, the holes still tend to be difficult to get through.  I don't like wearing earrings every day and can't tolerate them while sleeping.  I do enjoy being able to wear them when I want again.
