Should women wear jewelry?


I’m struggling with the words in 1 Timothy about women not wearing pearls, gold, braided hair, costly attire - I have all those except the braided hair, is this wrong for me as a Catholic to wear pearls and gold, (my wedding band is gold), I have see so many Catholic women with these items it’s hard to know what to think…

Thank you for your time.
