    Ladies, how much jewelry do you wear on a daily basis?

    At all times, I wear:
    • On my right hand and wrist, a ring and two bracelets (One flat link, and one small charm bracelet with three charms.)
    • Around my neck, a silver pendant.
    • In my ears, small silver hoops in the main piercing, and tiny diamond studs in the others.
    I also have a third stud in one ear and one in my nostril, but those don't count. :) I can occasionally be found wearing a watch or another large bracelet on my left wrist, a large drop necklace, or changing my earrings up.

    But in terms of the permanent fixtures, some women I see wear more than I do, and some wear almost none at all. I'm interested to know how much you ladies wear!

    All I wear is my wedding ring. If it's a special occasion, I will wear a string of pearls.

    I wear a string of pearls and pearl studs on an everyday basis, they just seem to go with everything! But if I'm going out or on the weekend I wear jewelery to match my outfit. I have been collecting heaps of bakelite and try to match a pair of bakelite earings to my dresses and if I have a matching bangle that goes on as well. Sometimes a brooch to but I NEED more of them LOL. My favourite necklace is a heart shaped pendant supposedly made from the windshield of a plane with a tiny p-38 aeroplane charm enbedded inside the heart!

    Just wanted to add how much I love the way the beautiful Fleur de Guerre stacks her bangles on!! I have fat hands and need to use heaps of handcream to slide my bangles on and after I get one on my hand swells from all the pushing and twisting so I can only do one at a time (must cut back on the donuts) <3

    Almost always earrings, but different earrings each day, always my wedding ring, sometimes a bracelet, sometimes a necklace, sometimes both.Just depends on mood and outfit.

    On a daily basis I always have on:

    - my grandmother's wedding ring & my engagement ring
    - a pair of plugs (my ears are stretched)
    - one pair of pearl studs (because I have a second set)
    - my Monroe piercing

    Nothing more on an absolutely daily basis. I often wear pins, brooches, or a necklace. Rarely will I wear bracelets or watches.

    Every day I wear:

    My wedding ring
    My engagement ring
    My eternity ring

    A silver ring on my right hand
    A silver bangle
    A silver watch

    Silver earrings
    A silver necklace (depending on the neckline of my top)

    All of my jewellery were gifts from my lovely husband so they mean a lot to me.

    As much as I love sparkle, I rarely wear jewelry. I just feel like I can't pull it off.
    In fact, my ears aren't even pierced.

    On a daily basis I wear earrings and sometimes a small chain around my left wrist, I work with heavy lifts so a ring can be a big danger to wear if my hand get sqeezed. (And I think I'm not supposed to wear the chain I wear now either as I destroyed the chain I were wearing just a coupple of months ago... )

    What I can't understand is why the men at work is waering their weddingrings when they perform the same work as me... Probbably they dont care if they loose a finger?[huh]

    My daily wear is a pair of small diamond studs that hubby got me for Valentine's day the first year he was home from Iraq, a flat silver pendant that was my first mother's day gift (says "maman, je t'aime") and my 5 year ring. It was given to me on my 5th anniversary by my mother in law, who was given it on her 5th anniversary by her mother in law. It was her's originally and she received it sometime in the late 30's from her husband.

    I have a lot of jewelry I wear, but usually it's just these three pieces.

    Daily basis I wear my white gold wedding band. I very rarely take it off. I take off my diamond engagement ring when I'm cooking, and sometimes forget to put it back on, so I sometimes go for half of a day without it. If I'm going out I will wear my sterling silver and garnet hoops (gift from mama-in-law) and my silver wrist watch. I have a bunch of other earrings and bracelets, but I don't wear them because I have a very curious toddler that will forcibly remove them from my person - sometimes painful! She's ripped a garnet hoop out of my ear before, so I've trained her to be careful with "mama's pretties". One day I'll give her the earrings.

    I wear my fake pearls when the outfit calls for it. Other than that, nothing. I was never a fan of jewelry. I don't even wear a wedding ring -- mostly because it makes my hand break out :( I have 10 piercing holes in my ears (it was the 80s!!!) and I NEVER wear earrings. Again -- my ears are on fire within 10 minutes and I have to take them out.

    One pair of earrings and my watch. I'll wear pearls if I'm in a suit, but anything loose or dangly is a no-no around the projection booth.

    I love jewellery, and I'm building up quite a collection of vintage pieces! Apart from my engagement ring and my watch, I always wear earrings and a brooch, every day! And often bangles too. I'd feel very naked and 'unfinished' if I didn't wear earrings and a brooch.
    My two favourite types of vintage jewellery are 30s/40s bakelite and 20s/30s sterling silver with marcasites. I try to wear something different every day so I get to wear most of the pieces I have. My only problem is that I'm allergic to the metal clips on most of my vintage earrings except the sterling silver ones! :(

    Stone or wood ear plugs, always. Because my ears are stretched, I'd look scary without them. I will wear a brooch if the garment I'm wearing is sturdy enough to support one. A bracelet in the rarest of occasions because I hate the way they bang on counters and tables. I hate stuff on my fingers and around my neck.

    Daily only my wedding band and ruby engagement ring. I love jewellery, but somehow never spend money on it. My taste has changed a lot, as I was a silver only girl and now prefer gold, so my choices are limited. I have a lovely unusual pearl bracelet and necklace I got for my wedding which I wear sometimes, as well as pearl and diamond earrings I got from my husband. I also have some pendants I love and used to wear daily, but they are gold plated and the silver was starting to show through, so I stopped wearing them every day.
    When I think of it I have a lot of earrings I wear to match different dresses, and I also love bracelets a lot. Half the time I run out of the house without anything though, or err on the side of wearing too little rather than too much.
    Oh, and I nearly forgot that for over ten years now I have a belly button piercing and the bar is gold and opal (my favourite stone). I was going to remove the piercing, but am quite attached to it because the opal bar was a gift from my husband.

  17. Everyday....
    On my left hand, I have on my watch from my mom, my aquamarine engagement ring and diamond wedding band. On my right, I have on my great grandmother's diamond ring. Around my neck is a diamond cross...... All of it in white gold.

    On special occasions....
    I wear a ruby and diamond necklace, diamond earrings and a watch with diamond bezel... all in gold and all from my mom.

    I suppose I'm pretty boring in the jewelry department [huh]

    I wear a lot of jewerly when I go out of the house. I *love* costume jewerly, and except for my wedding rings, everything I own is costume. I actually prefer costume to the real stuff, I think it's just fascinating.

    If I am going to work or the store, I wear:
    my wedding rings (engagement and wedding band)
    a necklace (or broach at my neck)
    a pin or three on my lapel or sweater (if it is a button down)
    earrings
    watch
    bracelet(s)

    Sometimes I will wear other rings on my right hand.

    I also put pins on most of my hats and keep pins on my outer coats, sometimes I do a theme like "fall leaves" and have a few leaf pins on my hat and a few more on my coat. I often mix metals (silver colored, gold colored, and copper) when doing "scatter pins."

    Around here, no one wants costume jewerly, especially the tacky stuff (which I love!). I picked up a three pins, a set of earrings, and two necklaces for $7 at a goodwill shop today. I still think I need more though. ;)

    My engagement ring is vintage (1928- very "art deco") but my wedding band is new. I had my heart set on the engagement ring and it was in terrible shape. It took 4 jewelers before I could get someone willing to work on it (it was so badly damaged). The woman who worked on it said that it was damaged because it rubbed against a ring (perhaps the band?) that was a different metal from the engagement ring.

    Around the house, I don't wear anything. Unless it is a holiday- like halloween. (I also have holiday-specific jewerly.)

    Always a ring, usually earrings and a brooch. I like bracelets, but they tend to catch on the totes I'm working on, and a necklace tends to clash with the company ID around my neck. :(

    I try and match the outfit. I have a rather large selection of jewelry. Or as my mother said after she helped me move, "Good lord, I had no idea you had so much stuff!"

    I had heard that before - if rings rub together that are different metals they can ruin the rings so you have to keep them all the same. Great that your ring could be repaired - it sounds beautiful.
