If you’re determined to get to the gym more this year, you need to make sure you have the right equipment. As well as wearing suitable clothing and shoes, you need to ensure that you wear the right jewellery when working out.
While it is a good idea to take off your jewellery when heading to the gym, popping pieces in your bag while you’re working out can increase your chances of losing them or them getting broken.
Of course, you don’t want to have to avoid wearing jewellery during the day just on the off-chance you might go to the gym, so it is a good idea to treat yourself to some items that will be better suited to breaking a sweat.
Here are some of our top choices when it comes to gym-friendly jewellery that can help you feel glam even when you’re working out:
Is there anything more glamorous than diamonds? You might not think that these gorgeous stones are suited to being worn in the gym, but classic diamond studs are a perfect choice.
Small stud earrings will not dangle or be at risk of getting caught in gym equipment when you are exercising, meaning they are ideal for wearing to the gym.
If you fasten them as tightly as possible while still ensuring they are comfortable to wear, they will also be less likely to go missing than if you store them in your gym bag.
You may think that diamond studs are an expensive choice for the gym, but we have a great range to choose from, with pairs suiting any budget. This means you can look glam at all times without breaking your budget.

While it is a good idea to avoid any jewellery that dangles, such as bracelets or necklaces, in case they get caught in gym equipment or break, if you can safely tuck your jewellery away, this shouldn’t be a problem.
This is why anklets are a great choice, as they can easily be tucked into your gym socks when you’re working out.
While they aren’t a typical item of jewellery, they can instantly add a touch of unexpected sparkle to any look, which means they are a lovely choice. You can wear anklets with casual, professional or evening wear, meaning you can pop one on in the morning and it will be suited to the rest of the day – including any time spent at the gym.
Just be sure to fasten your anklet so it is comfortable to wear, rather than too tight, as this could increase the chance of it breaking when you’re working out, even if it is tucked into your sock.
We have a lovely number of anklets that could be perfect additions to your jewellery box and serve as great items for the summer months.
If studs aren’t really your style, you might consider earrings that have a closed clasp. These are a very secure style that will allow you to wear larger earring styles without having to worry about them coming loose.
This style of earring will allow you to wear small hoops or simple dangle styles, which wouldn’t be very secure with other clasp types. However, it is still important to remember that the size of your earrings needs to be practical for the gym to avoid accidents and breakages.

Now you have no excuse not to keep up with your new year resolution!
