I have been dating this guy for 3 months and I really like him but I still wear the necklace that my ex gave me. We broke up 3 months ago because of the distance and the reason that I still wear his necklace is because of the meaning, he had it for so long and then gave it to me when he left asking me to care care of it.
I do not have romantic feelings for my ex but I do have good memories.
My new boyfriend doesn't seem to think is ok.

You're ex told you to "take care of it" not to where it all the time. You wouldn't be breaking your promise if you locked it away in a jewelry box in the back of your closet. Plus that way it'd make your boyfriend happy, and part of being a girlfriend is going to great lengths to make him happy. I understand that you want to keep it, but i don't think its unreasonable for him to ask you to stop wearing it. Who would want to see a reminder of their partner's ex everytime you looked at their neck?2

You aren't being a bad girlfriend, but I can see why this makes your new boyfriend feel insecure. Have you explained this to him like you have to us?
If you really don't have feelings for your ex, then it's just another piece of jewelry. It shouldn't matter. Wearing it all the time could make it seem like you're still attaching meaning to it and feelings to your ex though.0
