I've always been curious about what kind of jewelry people wear. Do you wear any permanent jewelry (worn more than 51% of the time)? How much jewelry? What kind of metals/stones do you like in your jewelry?
I'm not big into jewelry at all. I just wear my wedding ring and a copper bracelet. If I'm getting blinged up, I'll put on my engagement ring, a necklace, and maybe some earrings, but the occasion has to warrant it, LOL.
I went through an early midlife crisis about a year and a half ago. I realized I was not taking care of myself, I was ragging on My Man, I was depressed needed a huge change. I decided to stop ragging on him, and then started on things that would make me feel better about myself. Lost about 20 lbs, and dyed my hair again, and started wearing make up and jewelry almost every day.
I wear earrings (one in one ear and two in the other, wanting to get more) my wedding ring, some other rings, a necklace or two and some bangle bracelets. I sometimes wear an ankle bracelet, too, but the one I loved and wore ALL the time broke and I can't find one I like enough to replace it full time. I'd love to get a waist chain, either with or without nipple clips, but I regained some of the weight when I had to go on HRT and need to lost about 10 or 20 lbs again before I feel like I want to wear the chain. It seems like ALL the weight I gained went to either my boobs (good) and my tummy (NOT GOOD) so I'll have to cut back on the coconut milk ice cream after dinner so I can get that waist chain I really love.
Today, I have on just my wedding ring, watch, a necklace (that I bought at Justice, a store for kids, where I buy my youngest kid's cloths) and just realized I forgot to put earrings in.
I also really want a triangle piercing, but need to not only find a piercer I can trust, but wind up my courage.
I usually forget to put on my first hole earrings, but I always have my studs in my second hole. Hubby and I are pretty relaxed about our wedding rings and we don't get on the others' case about wearing it or not.
Other than that, I have many pretty things, gold from when I used to wear just that, but I prefer silver now.
When I got married, in lieu of a ring, my husband gave me a stainless steel lockable collar. It never comes off except for medical reasons (I have had to get a couple of xrays, and had to take it off for that). I do not have the key for it, he does. I also got my ears pierced a few months ago. Outside of that, I've never been big on wearing jewelry.
I don't normally wear jewelery because of my work and such. Sometimes if I go out to see a friend or whatever I put on my gothic cuffs, maybe a necklace and some earrings. Just to look somewhat badass, lol. (Ya know, dragons and crows and ankhs and stuff.)
I always wear my engagement ring and a silver band on each thumb. Sometimes I'll wear other rings as well. Otherwise every piercing has some jewelery in it, and I'll sometimes wear dangly earrings in the same hole as my 2G plugs.
I wear my high school class ring and my claddagh ring everyday, as well as the four gauges for my ear piercings. I also have my hips pierced so those are permanent jewelry I cycle between necklaces depending on my mood, and sometimes a couple pearl bracelets.
It's not that I don't wear any jewelry ever, it's just so rare it's barely worth mentioning. I keep studs in my ears occasionally to keep the holes from closing up, but you can't see them behind my hair anyway. I can't wear bracelets, rings, or necklaces because I'm a fidgeter.
I never wear jewelry but I have tons of it. When I'm with my guy and we go out I love to wear earrings but I'm always nuzzling him in some way and have gotten them stuck on things more than once. Hurts. I have costume jewelry and things from Claire's but no REAL jewelry. I guess I'm waiting for my engagement ring.
I do wear bracelets occassionally, especially string bracelets. I ordered a puppy-themed friendship bracelet from the ASPCA. It's so cute and purple. It's $40 but it's all for a good cause
I wear my wedding ring and a special necklace with my husband's initial all the time, and earrings when going out - but I must admit, I like gaudy jewelry, so the earrings are often a bit sparkly or big.
I have a ring I got on my 18th bday that I've worn every day since (white gold and sapphire :3), and I have a total of 5 earlobe piercings that I always have earrings in, a cartilage ring I always wear, and whatever belly ring I feel like wearing . Most of the stuff I wear is either sterling silver, gold, or titanium. But that's just the daily jewelry. I change bracelets and necklaces to fit my outfit/mood.
A decorative skeleton key I wear on a chain on my neck, which (and this is silly) I call The Key to My Heart, which I've worn since the day I told my husband it was over (last Nov). It's not going to be retired anytime soon. (At least until I find someone worthy of giving my heart to.)
I also wear a miniature pocketwatch on a necklace. It was a Christmas gift from my husband, and he had 'My Beloved' engraved on it. I'm still trying to figure out if I'm going to keep it or not when the divorce comes through.
Various earrings, although my favorites are a pair of green crystal studs. Have two holes in each ear, but I let the bottom ones heal (as much as they could) and only use the top ones.
Have tons of beaded and Celtic-theme necklaces, as well as brooches.
I adore emeralds, but will never be able to afford any really pretty pieces.
I have three earrings in each ear (although lately I've taken out the ones in my first holes, but only because they need cleaned something awful), and my wedding/engagement rings physically can't come off anymore. I refused to take them off when I was pregnant, and then I swelled and gained weight and now, well, you'd have to cut my finger off to get them separated from me. I'm okay with that though. Occasionally I wear a necklace of some sort if I'm going out.
