May women wear jewelry on Tisha Beav?

Some Poskim[1] rule that it is forbidden for women to wear jewelry on Tisha Beav. Other Poskim[2], however, rule that it is permitted for women to wear a little bit of weekday jewelry on Tishe Beav. However, one is to only wear her Shabbos jewelry. Practically, many women are accustomed to not wear any jewelry on Tisha Beav, with exception to the wedding ring.[3]
