Wedding Jewellery Etiquette

weather: cloudy

I was "asked to the Prom", as it were... which is pretty amazing for an old hag like me. It's a gala dinner cruise and I'd be going with Friend Dude. Husband Guy also knows Friend Dude and he's okay with it. He said that if I think I'll have fun, then I should go, even if I'm not going with him. I'm not so sure yet...

Question: is it appropriate to wear my wedding jewellery (engagement ring, wedding ring, anniversary band) to a formal social event as the guest of a male friend?

It's a formal event, so it would be appropriate as a part of my ensemble. I am never without my rings, so it feels strange to go without them. But, since I'm not with my husband, would it be a faux pas to be wearing them all? Since I won't know anyone there, I'm not sure I want to be in the awkward position of having people mistake me for Friend Dude's wife... ={

Opinions please... =}

Well, removing them would remove that social symbol that says "hands off, I'm taken" which could lead to more awkward situations if you turn out to be the belle of the ball.

Perhaps wearing your tiara might be overkill....

Re:
Hehehe, no, no tiara... maybe either a smaller tiara type band or some other smaller hair things, but not the wedding tiara =)
