I had no idea it was a symbol of femininity. Learning something new every day.... also I have never considered a nose stud unprofessional

Totally fine as long as it’s not too ostentatious. See a lot of South Asian women wear it at EY and never thought it was unprofessional.

Absolutely go for it! It’s no different than wearing earrings really!

Asked my SO who is principal at bcg, he says he sees no issue. I think at conservative firms like ey you might find different schools of thought.

I have one too. It's a tiny diamond that's barely noticeable. I've had no issues and no comments about it. The recruitment firm that placed me at big4 had asked I take it off for my interview but, I said no its part of my culture. I got the job and have been with the firm for 5 years, no issue.

Same here part of my culture and I have been wearing it for a while now. Nobody ever told me anything for it. Provided I wear a very small diamond stud. It’s a charm to my personality I feel 😊.

Team, thank you so much for the comments & help. Quick update in case anyone stumbles across this thread with a similar concern: no issues and no comments (other than a couple of compliments). :)

It’s about 1.5mm and is a small pin/stud on the side of my nose

It is fine as long as it is small!

I have one. It’s much much smaller than the picture you have. It just a tiny single diamond. Stores in qns on liberty ave sell white gold ones.
