I always used to like gold, then years ago a friend of mine had this theory that blondes should wear yellow gold while brunettes should wear silver or white gold...I never thought of it that way I jsut figured what ever you like....What do you like?

I think you shouldn't worry about "shoulds" and "shouldn't's" - jewellry, clothes and make-up are there for you to express yourself, and wear what YOU like. Personally I prefer silver jewellry, as I not only like the metal, but the sorts of design you tend to get in silver are more to my taste, and tend to be a bit different and more creative. But each to their own - if you like gold, well then you wear gold, and don't listen to people with their silly little rules and conventions.

great response and thanks I have a tendency myself to lean towards silver just thought it was strange to hear that people think certain people are supposed to wear this and that definitely not my style i like to be unique!!

Good on you! By the way, if you like the look of gold but prefer the unique and unusual designs you get with silver jewellry, have you thought of going to a jewellry-makers shop where they do their own work, and get a bespoke piece made? There are plenty of places in the UK which will do this - sometimes a bit pricier than the norm, but you can design it yourself, and for a special treat it is worth it!

I use to like gold plated jewlery more but the gold plate seems to wear off to much. Now I much prefer silver jewlery. Matter of fact I think all of my jewelry is now silver except my mothers necklace that my brother/sil got me for christmas this year. We see a lot of people who seem to wear more silver jewelry now a days than gold. I love all kinds of silver jewelry but I thin my favorie is my italian charm bracelets and my mothers necklace I recieved this year.

I have noticed that as well as I used to wear alot of gold plated too the quality or something just went downhill. I always preferred silver or white gold but when through a gold phase in high school and then again a few years ago but I really do prefer the silver

I prefer silver or white gold. However sometimes it can be hard to find a silver watch. If possible then I get one that is mixed. Like the one I have right now has a braided style wristband and it's silver and gold. Otherwise if I have my choice it's always silver and then white gold. I only where gold if I really have to.

I think it really depends on your skin tone & what looks best on you. I personally don't like gold jewelry, I only wear white gold, platinum or silver.

I think it all depends on your personal taste. I, for one, prefer silver to gold, just think it looks nicer.

My most favorite is gold. I don't usually like how silver looks on me. I do one piece that is silver and looks good. The rest of what I have is gold and it all looks great on me.
