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!:(

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!
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.

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!
