I love silver jewelry! I think it looks absolutely gorgeous with my skin color. Growing up, I wore a lot of gold jewelry, but after high school hit, it was all silver. I'm not even sure why I switched. I think it was because I found a pair of blue earrings with a silver frame and I had to have them. Once I bought the earrings, I had to get other matching jewelry, thus my silver streak began. Occasionally I will wear a few items that are silver and gold, but most of the time its just silver! What is your preference? Have you always preferred that?? If not, when and why did you switch??

Just call me Silver Junkie.. :) I love that white glow real silver has about it. Gold is nice, but it's just not the same. I have 2 silver charm necklaces and 2 charm bracelets loaded with over 50 silver charms between the 4 of them plus lots of silver rings, chains & earrings. I've now got my daughter hooked on them too.

I am all about silver too. I don't know why I don't like gold. Well, number one it looks sickly on my complexion but also, just prefer silver. I have always prefered it since I was a teen and started wearing jewelry at all. And that was in the 80's silver ring thing. I am not a big jewelry wearer but I always have earrings and a necklace and they are always silver or another color but never gold.

I have both gold and silver jewelry but silver is my favorite. I have more silver jewelry than gold. I don't like the color of gold, I don't know why, it's just a question of taste. So I use silver, for me it's prettier, I love the color and it looks good. If I had to choose gold I would choose white gold because of the color but it's easier to choose silver and it's cheaper!

It's really funny that I ran into this question as my fiance just asked me which I prefer, white or yellow gold! he wants to pick something out and surprise me. I always have favored yellow gold and that is what most of my jewelry is. My skin is dark - olive-tone and it looks great on me, but I am tempted to try white gold....decisions, decisions....LOL. :)

So go half & half. :) Have a gold ring with the diamond set in white gold. It makes the diamond look bigger that way. Congrats!

i love silver jewelery also. i tried gold a few times, but that does not fit me. so i stay with the silver. The problem is that i am a bit allergic to silver, so you can always see me with red years, or red spots on my fingers, but still i live it so much, that i do not think that i will ever give it up.

I've always been a silver "addict", and I kept saying I would never give silver up in favour of gold. My mom tried to explain that it's gonna be the time for me to switch them but who listened? I almost hated gold in that time... But this summer, on my 18th birthday, my parents gave me a gold necklace and pair of earrings and my boyfriend gave me a gold bracelet. I just fell in love with them eversince. I don't know whether I fell in love with gold or with the jewelry because they have an emotional value... Anyway, when spring came, i felt the need for a little change so I switched back to my silver jewelry, because I realised how much silver I have that deserves to be worn more. So, now, I'm attached to both silver and gold. I prefer wearing gold on special occasions and silver in normal days.

Gold use to be the thing. When I got married 20 yrs ago, it was gold~ no doubt. Now I love silver. I wear both silver and gold together so I can keep my wedding band on and wear the silver that I love so much.

I would have to say that at this point in my life I prefer silver. It's much less expensive than gold so it's easier to buy numerous pieces to switch off. I have a few silver chains, but many pendants which I love to switch off depending on my outfit. Luckily I'm not allergic to silver as manyh people are so I can wear silver earrings, although for my ears I prefer yellow or white gold.

i personally prefer silver jewelry. It looks far bette on me than gol does because it has cool undertones while gold has warm undertones. i have cool undertones in my hair, si=kin, and eyes. Naturally, i look better in cool tones.

i usually use silver. for me, silver is a symbol for simplicity that's why i use silver jewelry as my daily accesories. but if there's celebrations or something, i prefer gold jewelries.

My opinion is that ladies should go for gold compare to silver.Because if u say gorgeous that means you are giving complement to some girl.An girls can't be silver because they are gorgeous & shine like a gold.
