Is it okay to wear a set of rosary beads if you are not Catholic?

My boyfriend is a Catholic, and he bought me a beautiful set of rosary beads.. Of course, he has two sets of his own. I think they are beautiful, and of course I am wearing them now, but I was just wondering if this is okay...

Yeah if you like the way it looks go for it! I wore Buddha around my neck because the laughing fat guy was funny and a good conversation piece at parties lol I mean disrespect to people who actually believe in stuff I wore it because I picked it up at yard sale for like 2 bucks.

Rosary beads are for praying the Rosary but if you respect it I don't see why it would be a problem.

I was told that if you are a Christian that you shouldn't wear them because they represent repetitive prayer. "But when ye pray, (use not vain repetitions), as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking." Matt 6.7-Personally, I don't see anything wrong, it's jewelry and if worn without trying to make a statement then I think it's fine.
