I have a couple ankhs, but my primary symbol that I wear is a Set pendant.  I need to find something to put it on, though.

I wear a sterling silver ankh and a pewter Eye of Heru. I only ever take them off to shower (and they're the first thing back on after). I sleep with them on and if work forbids jewellery (my last job did) I simply tuck them under my shirt. Usually though they are left in the outside of my shirt since I tend to play with them a lot.

My first piece of Kemetic jewellery (that I remember) was an ankh I "made". It had been part of this weird necklace a friend gave me since I liked the ankh on it. It was a peace symbol in the shape of a heart with the ankh connected to the bottom. One day I felt the need to have the ankh on me (I was going to a funeral for a family friend) so I broke the ankh off, grabbed a metal file and filed the top smooth. I then attached it to the same cord that the original pendant had been on. I kept that  one until most of the silver tone had worn off and it was discoloring pretty badly. I still have it somewhere.

I usually alternate between a pendant of Hethert (my Mother) and a pendant of Djehuty (one of my Beloveds). I also have an ankh and a djed pillar that I wear occasionally.

I bought a ring with a sun on it yesterday as a reminder and in honor of this year of Zep Tepi. I haven't worn a ring in months because of the two I wore regularly one I lost two years ago and the other is hopefully somewhere in my house but... And nothing quite felt right until I picked this one up in a pagan shop where I had just heard one of my new favorite musicians play a very small show. I have a hard time moving past mistakes and delays and get very caught up in my perceived failings/failures; and I think wearing this ring will help me remember the gift of Zep Tepi and refocus myself.

There was also a very nice ankh ring of a similar size that was quite tempting, but as I could only let myself get one ring and I already have four different ankh necklaces I decided I would wait on that one.

A little hard to see in this webcam photo but it's sterling silver and has curly rays and a smiling face.

Okay, so I FINALLY got a picture of my amber sun necklace that I wear to represent my faith.   Here it is!

For those that don't know the back story behind this, I was walking around my local mall during the beginners class and was suddenly stopped mid step and saw this necklace. I distinctly heard a collective voice say, "This is our gift to you. You may bask in the moonlight but you are a child of the sun." Turns out, this was correct! The only lunar influences in my lineup are from my Beloveds but I experience them more as the sun. My Parents are both the sun. ^_^ Anyways, I had to buy it... even though it was a 'gift'. lol It's been a pleasure wearing it since that day.

I wear a Yinepu medal, a Ganesha medal, sometimes a Pentacle, sometimes a Yin Yang, and am getting an ankh I like real soon.

I wear my Shemsu Ankh scarab, plus my tattoos.  I recently got a lovely Bast pendant that I’ve been wearing too.  I’d like another Ankh pendant, but with the tattoo of one right there, it’s not a pressing need.

I currently have a Wadjet eye tattoo on my right shoulder (right facing eye for the sun) in honor of my Papa Heru-sa-Aset as well as a wadjet bracelet I got for Christmas last year.  I used to have a necklace to but unfortunately the metal was cheap and it broke.  That's pretty much all I wear though, I would wear a ring, but it's been hard to find a good one that I actually like.

Mostly I wear a necklace of Djehuty, sometime Bast. And sometimes of Khepri and Ra (they are on the same chain). I also have an ankh, a necklace of Aset.
I mostly wear them on need, since they're connected to the magical personification of the particular Netjer.

Awesome thread! Guys, do you think the necklaces should be worn outside or under the shirt? My relatives say it's a personal thing so they should be worn under.
Senebty,
Gleb
