Machinists never wear rings, watches or neckties.  I've never heard any
recommendations against rings or watches in the outdoors, even among the
extremely safety-conscious cave-rescue community.  Large earrings wouldn't
be a good idea, and strings hanging around necks can be dangerous.  It is
absolutely not true that two cans of hair spray are equivalent to a
helmet!  (:-)
