IF I ever am collared, I would like something subtle, but I would wear it out. I would not wear an obvious collar out though.

I wear collars in public sometimes, mostly just for fashion, nothing too obviously bondage related though

If it were subtle, yes I would consider wearing one, if I were ever collared.

No, absolutely not. But then again, I do not do collars at all. Feels too much like a dog.

No, we look pretty vanilla to the outside world.

I have a steel collar that I wear all the time. I had a leather collar before that. I would wear it out when my son wasn't with us.

Absolutely!!

Currently sporting a leather collar. Will 'upgrade' to steel/locking once we're married/re-evaluate if we want to go the M/s route. That's just how we planned it.

Only if it looks nice and doesn't look like something a dog would wear.

yeah sure I would! I have a really lovely custom collar and it's sort of a shame it sits in it's box the majority of the time.

And of course, just because someone's wearing a collar doesn't necessarily mean they participate in BDSM...it's a fairly common fashion statement, too.

Yup. I have a titanium one that I wear 24/7.

If it matched my outfit.
I wouldn't want to deal with the questions people would likely ask.

I wear collars around the house and stuff a lot but I don't think I would wear a big one out. Possibly one of my smaller ones though. Honestly though, I think my girlfriend would be more weirder out then I would be.

No. I'm not a 16 year old goth chick. One thing is in the bedroom. It's something altogether different in public. I'm an almost 30 year old professional woman. I like to present myself as such.

I'm surprised that the people that are saying "no" are equating collars with the type a dog would wear. My friend has a collar from her master that is a simple necklace with a small silver bell as the charm. The bell is very delicate (looks like it is made of out flower petals) and just really gorgeous. A "collar" doesn't have to be leather with metal spikes. (Though, if that's what you prefer, that's cool, too! )

With this in mind, would people be more open to wearing a collar if it was more like a piece of jewelry and less akin to what most people here are equating it to?

It depends on the setting. If it's a BDSM or BDSM friendly event, obviously, i would. If it's a venue where the collar could be taken as a fashion statement, then i absolutely would. i would probably draw the line at wearing an obvious BDSM collar to work, to visit my grandparents or to someplace like church, or around friends or family whom i know or believe the presence of my collar would make uncomfortable. One of my hard limits is letting BDSM negatively impact my work, friendships, or family relationships. Otherwise, if instructed to by my Mistress, i would wear my collar anywhere she chose. i would happily wear a discreet day collar just about anywhere, even work, church and family visits, and i have. Generally, i was only ever asked directly about it by people who knew me. At work, church, family visits it was sometimes commented upon in the "what a pretty choker" sense, or i was occasionally asked where i got it. When it was inappropriate to divulge it's true purpose, i merely said that it was a gift.

I'd wear a bdsm collar in public. Probably not around my parents, but out in public, I could give a shit. I'm not collared, my wife and I don't have that kind of relationship. but a few weeks ago, she collared our pets, and then herself, and gave me the leashes to all 3 of them. hers was made of chain though, cause she's a bit more unruly

Yeah I would, but people probably think it was just another phase of mine so it wouldn't bother a soul.

I would, I've thought about it, I would be totally cool with it if it looked good. I'm a dom, not a sub, but I will still totally do it.

Maybe not a very obvious one, but I'd wear one.

I feel like if you want to wear a collar there is a way to make it work without being too obvious if you aren't into that sort of thing. I know I would enjoy being collared and definitely would figure a way to work something into my everyday life even if it was just a special necklace.
