Getting Myself a Nice, 14-ct Gold Pair of Earrings

Some people with pierced ears, purchase all kinds of earrings to wear. I'm not like that. Instead, I like to have about two or three really nice pairs of earrings, to wear all the time. My oldest sister pierced my ears years back, when I was 13 years old. She worked at a jewelry store and bought me a very nice pair of 14-ct gold ball earrings, for my Birthday. I wore those for many years, because I'd never owned a nice piece of gold jewelry before, in my entire life! This started to snow-ball, though. Other girls at school noticed that I had pieced ears and they asked me where they could possibly get theirs done, also. So, I invited them over to my house and did just exactly what my sister had done, to pierce mine! I ended up piercing the ears for three of my school chums, at no charge:) Now, everybody and their mother has piercings, with some all over their body! Photo: I was running to get away from my son-in-law's camera lens. I hate getting my picture taken!:(

Not me and my mom! Neither of us have our ears pierced. My grandmother doesnt either. Or anywhere else. No tattoos either.

My sister's ears were pierced at home by my late aunt ( my father's sister) who was doctor, I don't know the reason but it scared the hell out of me lol, I have no tatoos nor piercing in any part of my body.

I have no desire to get any piercings, other than my ears. Tattoos? Nope!

My mom would not let me get my ears pierced, so when I went away to college, a girl in my dorm pierced mine. I am not a fan of piercings on other parts of the body either. Glad you are going to get yourself one very special pair of earrings.

Jay asked what I needed for Christmas. I thought about it and could only come up with one thing, earrings! He's good about this and will let me pick them out, myself:) One time, he bought me a pair of long, dangling earrings, which I was too embarrassed to wear! I never said one word, but after while he realize, that those earrings weren't to my liking, at all!

I have pierced ears and love earrings. When my middle daughter was in her late teens she pierced her own ears and many of her friends.

It's really easy to do, because the earlobe is just fat and skin. I don't know if I could do my own, though! LOL

I've never had pierced ears or worn ear-rings. For some reason I don't like the thought of things attached to my ears.

@valmnz My ears stick out a little bit, so these earrings take the focus off them.

It's very easy to do and I left my earrings out for about five years. When I checked, the holes were still in my ears, so now I wear earrings again!

In my country, it's traditional to have the baby girl's ears pierced once they're born. So they would be identified as girls and not baby boys. I've had my ears pierced since I can't remember and my mother had always made me wear gold earrings. Back when I was a kid I could only wear real gold earrings as I get allergic reactions to other kinds of metals. but now I could wear silver pieces as well as gold. And I love collecting gold and Pandora jewelries.

Oh yes, I can wear sterling silver earrings, also. The really cheap metals give me a bad reaction.

What is the picture all about? Are you giving that big smile because you got new earrings? I think earrings can add to the beauty of a woman but I just do no see anything beautiful about other body piercings?

My son-in-law was following me around, with a camera! I hate to get my photo taken, so I was trying to get out of his view! We were at a high school graduation, out in front of the school. Body piercings are awful!

I don't remember exactly when I got mine done, I know I was older thou, cause it was after I got married so anywhere after 18. I have found out I'm allergic to all but the good stuff. I have 1 pair as I hate spending money on things like that. Thinking I might start looking for a small pair thou. Yes piercings all over the place for some! 2 is enough for me!

That's really nice to get new earrings. I think mine were done at the mall. I have two pairs of hoop earrings that I mostly wear.

I like to have about three decent pairs of earrings, depending upon how I'm dressed. My hoops are for everyday use, because they go with everything.
