Do you wear it? I'm partial to earrings and the occasional bracelet (besides wedding band, I do wear my baptismal cross on special occasions because I'm scared about losing it).

I liked costume jewelry when I was younger, but have scaled back a lot. Not into dangly earrings or multiple bangles much these days. (I have tiny white gold hoops in most of the time.)

I think jewelry looks good in discreet amounts, like a thin gold necklace, small earrings… you don’t want to go full-retard like certain celebrities trying to push “bling bling” crap. Usually you see older ladies putting a lot to compensate their gone beauty.

In some cultures women love jewelry since it’s liquid money and it becomes their “savings account” during hard times (or divorce).

I wear my wedding band always (tbh I don’t know if I could take it off lol…) The other regular jewelry I wear is the cross my grandma gave me and more recently I’ve added my blessed St. Mary medallion from high school to the same chain. Other than that, I really don’t wear anything. If I’m getting dressed up, I might wear earrings and my engagement ring and a bracelet but never on a regular day.

Also, I don’t buy jewelry for myself. I think jewelry should always be a gift. Every piece I have was given to me as a special gift and so every piece is very special to me from my husband, parents, friends, etc.

Yeah, I can feel that sometimes though. We went to a wedding last night and I broke out some of the sparkles because I never wear it, haha. (I have a Swarovski crystals set from my grandfather that is too heavy/flashy generally, but fine for holidays and special occasions. I lost the bracelet at another wedding, though, so I just have the necklace left.)

My only daily jewelry is my wedding ring set. Other than that, I am extremely minimalistic about jewelry. I will wear a delicate necklace or small pair of earrings once in a great while. Like Starlight, these pieces were gifts.

I'm just really minimalistic in general, so that tendency definitely extends to jewelry.

When the world was a little more normal, I wore a bit of jewelry - mostly a few pretty pieces handed down from my mom and gifts. I prefer angel aura or clear crystal with a little sparkle, a little bit of freshwater and traditional pearls, nothing too flashy, classic and sometimes with a little flair.

Now a year and a half into Covid, I hardly wear any jewelry at all. It just feels a bit superfluous during these times. I will occasionally throw on a necklace, some earrings, or a bracelet for fun.

I wear an Orthodox cross daily, Russian or Greek, inside or outside my clothes, and simple pierced earings. My jewelry collection is of sentimental things, gifts from loved ones, hand-made items, souvenirs from travels, and my mom's collection of pins which she wore often on her dresses and pantsuits. I don't often wear them as as prefer to handle and look at them, remembering their origins with love. Most are stored in clear pockets, a jewelry hanger. I want to slip a little note into each pocket, describing it's significance, to hand down to my daughter eventually.

It miraculously turned up each time, so I'm not afraid of losing it anymore.

I wear a small silver cross and my ring. I also wear a watch. No earrings, nothing that stands out wildly. I prefer modesty in my jewelry.

I wear my cross necklace, wedding ring and engagement ring daily and a wooden prayer bracelet. I only wear earrings and switch out my cross for a different necklace for occasions. Last year I really cut down on my jewelry box and only have special pieces that I would wear for occasions.
