I've worn a chain link from DH with my watch for a while now but I've just recently taken a liking to more bracelets. I'm most comfortable with a bunch on my left hand but I wonder ...

I think you should just wear them wherever is most comfortable for you. -I am left handed so my right arm is more comfortable.

I wear a watch on my left wrist and all bracelets are on right wrist.

Neither. I can't STAND having things around my wrists. I don't wear a watch. I can't even wear sweaters that fit at my wrists... they have to be a little long, or I wind up pushing the sleeves up to mid-forearm.

I'm always envious of women who can wear bracelets though - I think they can look fun and dressy w/out being overly formal. I've always wished I was the type to wear them.

I wear them on the left hand because I'm right handed, so I'm always writing or using it more.

I find that if I wear things on my right wrist they get in the way when I write, so If I wear bracelets or a watch its always on my left wrist.

I wear them on my left, since I'm right handed. Same with rings.

i wear a watch on my left hand - never wear watch on right hand.
but bracelets.... it really depends. Usually I have on both of my hands, or either hands. It doesn't really matter to me ^^ As long as it feels comfortable and don't bother me while i write or do things.

I wear my watch on my right wrist -- it has a flat and stretchy metal band that won't irritate me when I'm writing. I wear bracelets on my left wrist if at all, but some of them are annoying when I type on my laptop and I end up taking them off.

I wear my watch and/or chunkier bracelets on my left hand and may put a thinner bracelet on my right hand if i want something dressier. I work in accounting and use my right hand on the adding machine and the chain and or band causes irritation when rubbing against the machine for long periods of time.

I wear watches on my left wrist -- when I bother to wear them. Generally, I just keep track of the time on my phone. However, I wear dressier bracelets on my right wrist. I am not sure why, but that is how my mom and my grandmother did it, and I have to admit that when I'm holding a wine glass at a party, my tennis bracelet looks really pretty reflecting the light...OK, a little vain, but I am rarely overtly vain...so there you go.:)

I wear either bracelets or a watch - BUT I always wear them on my right hand. I'm weird, I guess.

I wear my watch on my right hand (polar f11, or my velcro sports watch when I'm working, so my f11 don't get dirty:D) , and lately haven't worn many bracelets.

If I'm wearing any jewellery or my watch, I wear it on my left hand. This is because I am right handed, and thus, my right hand and wrist is slightly bigger due to me making more use of the muscles. I find that things have a nicer fit when worn on my more slender hand!

Has anyone else noticed a small difference in the size of hands? I find it's most noticeable with smallish rings that might fit really well on my left hand but are too tight on my right hand.

Yes, I've noticed a difference. My nursing ring does not fit on my left pinkie. I hadn't noticed anything with my wrists. I think the problem with bracelets was the rattling thing.

Yes! My right hand fingers are all about 1/2 size larger than the same fingers on the left hand. (Which, for me, is the difference between 4.5 and 5, so they're still freakishly small.) I wonder if my right wrist is significantly bigger... maybe if I started wearing bracelets on my right wrist, they wouldn't have to all be super adjustable or children's sizes! :lol:

I tend to wear watches/bracelets on my right hand.

It's convenient as I'm a leftie and I have a tattoo on my wrist that must be covered when I'm on a rotation or at a lecture at the teaching hospital.

I used to be terribly focused on time, so I broke myself of wearing a watch. Clocks are all around, and I usually have my cell phone with me.

When I do wear something on my wrists, I wear it on my right if I'm not going to do a lot of writing or things with my right hand and on my left if I am or if it is something with a clasp I need my right hand to put on. I'm not especially vain, either, but I figure jewelry is meant to be noticed, and I tend to gesture more with my right hand when I talk.

I wear a watch on my left hand and sometimes a bracelet...but mostly bracelets are on the right. I will wear one or two once in a while but not all the time.

I don't currently have a watch or any bracelets. I have recently been thinking that I would like some. This is the bracelet I have been eyeing:

during the day i dont wear any bracelets, i wear a watch on my left wrist, and i dont like anything on the right because it gets in the way. When im going out i usually wear bracelets on both wrists.

My right hand is slightly bigger, you cant see a difference but my rings are slightly tighter

I'm righthanded and wear my watch on the left wrist. If I go to a very special do I put my fancy watch on the left wrist and the only bracelet I have on the right wrist, it's a 24 carat gold one from India that grandad gave me for my first communion. In everyday life I just find bracelets annoying. My sister wears a really cute anklet in the summer with her little sandal shoes, might copy her next summer :)

I don't wear watches, just use my cell phone lol but I do wear bracelets. I almost always wear them on my right wrist. But if the bracelet has a significant meaning to me I will wear it on my left.

Watch on the left arm, bracelets on the right. No reason now why I should wear the watch on the left since it's digital, but I started wearing them on the left in wind-up watch days (do I give away my age? Hey, I was there when Abe Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address ;) ) and don't feel like changing now

I am left handed so watches go on my right. If I wear both a watch and braclets. Watch on right braclets on left. But if bracelets only then on my right.

I must be the odd one out... I am a leftie and wear them on my left arm too. They feel out of place if they are on the right. I've tried, but end up switching them to the left anways.

Left, b/c there is a scar there that a watch or bracelets can cover up.

I never, ever wear bracelets on both wrists at the same time, or a watch on one & a bracelet on the other - it just always seems like way too much, even if both are casual!

I always have a honking watch on my left, which is pretty blingy so I don't usually wear bracelets. When I do, they are on my right wrist.

Left-handed...Left wrist. That's if I wear them. I am very picky because I feel that bracelets make my hands look huge. Weird thing I've always had dunno why

I wear them on both! I collect bangles, and its no big deal what wrist they are on.

I often wear bracelets on both wrists, but if I only wear one it's one my left since I am right handed.

I agree with tinycities, I also find that wearing jewelry along with rings is more comfortable on my left hand because my right hand/wrist are slightly bigger.

I wear watches on my left and if I wear bracelets, which I usually don't, they're always on the right.

I wear watches on my left wrist -- when I bother to wear them. Generally, I just keep track of the time on my phone. However, I wear dressier bracelets on my right wrist. I am not sure why, but that is how my mom and my grandmother did it, and I have to admit that when I'm holding a wine glass at a party, my tennis bracelet looks really pretty reflecting the light...OK, a little vain, but I am rarely overtly vain...so there you go.:)

I'm the same way. I don't typically wear bracelets unless I'm dressing up and I always wear them on my right wrist. I don't typically have to write anything down while at a party. Watches, when I wear them, I wear on my left wrist.

I used to wear my bracelets on my left, but I'm left handed and it gets irritating sometimes. Now, however, I've been watching a few YouTube videos that QueenVEVO uploaded. I love listening to Queen, so I listen on youtube. Through this, I found that Freddie Mercury wore 'dressier' bracelets on his right hand, and wore one 'bracelet' and rings on his left. I find it more comfortable than I did before, but it's just a matter of opinion.
