Do you wear jewelry? What kind?

I have a lot of jewelry but seldom wear any of it. I have 3 holes in each of my ears but usually only wear one pair of earrings. The main reason I think is because I lose jewelry so easy. I love to wear rings but somehow they manage to get lost either when I'm wearing them or somewhere in my apartment. Even though the earrings are pierced I still end up losing one at one time or another. When I'm cleaning around my apartment if I come across a necklace, ring or any jewelry I usually put it on right then and end up wearing it for months at a time until I come across something else and change it. Do you wear any kind of jewelry? Do you have a favorite that you wear all the time or do you only wear it for special occasions?

I wear my 3 earrings in my left ear. I wear my wedding ring. I also wear a masonic ring all the time. I've been wearing the earrings since high school (25 years) I've been wearing my wedding ring (15 years) and I've been wearing my masonic ring for (10 years) oh I wear a white gold necklace (6 years). I don't go anywhere without them.

Isn't it funny how we can put on a piece of jewelry and never take it off? I was like that years ago and don't know when it ended!

It's not like I can't live without them. I can! I just love to express my self, all that I wear is a part of me. I gotta wear my wedding ring. the masonic ring has it's benefits, especially when pulled over by the police, it saves on tickets. I had 4 earrings, one closed, one for each year of highschool completed. The necklace, my wife gave me for our 10th anneversary. It's all symbolism.

I usually don't wear jewelry all that much. I have it just don't wear it. When I do wear it I tend to put on a ring my hubby gave to me when we first started dating. I used to wear earrings all the time but now I can only wear a certain kind.

I love jewelry. I love gold jewelry. I have silver pieces also. I wear some costume jewelry also, but my main pieces are gold. I wear rings all the time. I lost one awhile back, so I do not remove them. Earrings are a must have, I constantly lose earrings so I try not to buy expensive one. I also wear bracelet sometimes.

I'm partial to silver myself. I seldom find anything gold or goldtone that catches my eye.

i actually wear a lot of jewelry. ihave 3 holes in each ear, but wear 2 pairs of earrings that i never take off (my white gold studs and my silver skulls) and leave the 3rd hole open for whatever earringsi choose. i wear an AFI ring and an AFI necklace, a skull ring and a skull necklace, and 11 bracelets. Why so much, you ask? i really don't know. i just like it all. i feel naked without it.

There was a time when I kept the same earrings in two of the holes in my ears and then I lost one and that ended that. I never found two or one more pair I liked enough to keep in all the time.

Yes – jewellery is my passion. I own loads and loads, and wear it all the time. Some of it belonged to my Mother and Grandmother, some of it to members of my partner’s family, some of it has been given to me for Birthdays and Christmases over the years, - some I have even bought myself! I tend to wear different items depending on my mood and the outfit I am wearing, but I always wear my late Mother’s wedding ring (never take it off), and also a St. Christopher pendant on a gold chain, that my partner gave me when we first got together 20 years ago.

I think it's nice to have a passion for jewelry. I don't know if I would be able to make a choice when it came to putting something on though.

It's awesome having a one of a kind bracelet. I would love to see a picture of it if you can do that.

My grandson of 18 years of age makes and sells jewelry so I have a variety of items he has given me. I wear everything he gives me with pride and I am very careful not to lose it. My daughter also gives me jewelry so I have some nice rings, earrings and necklaces given to me by them. I wear my jewelry everyday even while cleaning house.

I'm sure it's awesome having a family member who makes jewelry. You will never run out and always have pieces that nobody else has.

My ears are pierced but I rarely wear earrings. The only jewelry I wear on a regular basis is the bracelet my kids and grandkids gave me for Mother's Day, it has links just like your I love country music picture.

That sounds like a very pretty bracelet. I love wearing whatever my kids and grandkids give me and try to make a point to put something on when I know I am going to be with them.

Yes, I love to wear jewerly. My favorite pieces are ankle bracelets, rings, and earings and necklaces. I like it all. I only have one ear piercing though. I don't like to much jewerly. I like one ring on each hand, one pair of earings, one necklace. Right now I don't have my rings on as they bother my hands sometimes with all the typing I do. But I love my earings and necklace.

I always look forward to the summer to be able to wear toe rings and ankle bracelets. I think they look so feminine.

I rarely wear jewelry. The only piece of jewelry I wear all the time is my engagement ring. Every now and then I will wear earrings. I have 2 holes in each ear. And sometimes I will wear a necklace but that's about it.

With all of the weird jewelry out there I think it looks nice to wear only one or two pieces.

I have quite a bit of jewelry that I always wear, mostly because I have 7 piercings. :) I wear two pairs of earrings in each earlobe, one in my cartilage, a stud in my nostril, and my belly button ring all of the time, unless I am cleaning the jewelry. Aside from that, I wear a necklace and a ring whenever I'm awake and not in the shower or washing dishes. The necklace is one that my fiance has the other half of, and the ring is one that I bought in New Orleans a few years ago.

I looks like most of your jewelry is the kind that has to stay in anyway and you don't have a choice. With all of those piercings I'm sure you seldom loose any of it.

I like jewelry. I wouldn't say I wear a lot of it, at one time, but rather I try to wear a little each day. I have 3 holes in my left ear, and one in my right. In the two extra I have two small silver hoops I always wear, and then I chane my main earrings with my mood. I also have one small silver and shell ring that I wear every day. In fact i rarely even notice I wear it ianymore, it's just become routine. I really love necklaces and try to match one of them with my outfit. My necklaces are largely hand made and made out of natural beads of stone, wood or coral. I really like the more natural look, and I love making my own jewelry....this way, I know that I will always like it ;-)

My hoop earrings! They are my security blankets and I don't leave home without them. Other than that, I am in a hurry to get out, I forget to put anything else on.

I own tons of jewelery but I very seldom wear any. I use to wear a lot of bracelets and necklaces but I have since outgrown doing that. I wear my engagement ring on a necklace because I can't stand to wear rings at all. My ears are pierced several times each but I don't like to wear earrings at all.

The only jewelry I wear 24/7 is my engagement and wedding ring. On occasions I will wear earings, necklace and or a bracelet/bangles but thats about it.
