I crochet and they are running a lot of necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the pattern books that are made with crochet thread. I have made a couple. Some include beads. Used to wear a lot more jewelry in the old days when I worked in an office but the thread creations are nice because they go so well with everyday around the house wear.

I love jewelry a lot.

I wear jewelry with everything (even in my swimsuit I wear a nice pair of small earrings and my ring). But I do coordinate my jewelry to what I wear. If I'm wearing my turquoise and black shirt and my light blue jeans, then I wear my turquoise jewelry.

And the color of my clothes too. Some of my clothes look better with my gold jewelry and others look better with my silver jewelry.

I've never been on rings, but I have several chokers I like to wear. I'm a huge fan of bellybutton piercings, though, and I have a collection of over 100 pieces of navel jewelry. I wear one every day; my stomach feels naked without one.

If it's my taste. Simple, classic, nothing gaudy, rarely gems. Price is immaterial. Uniqueness/handmade factor is a biggie.

Rings are the jewelry I wear most consistently.

I seem to be very picky when it comes to jewelry. I can go into all the jewelry stores in a mall and not even "like" a single thing. My hubby wanted to buy me a special ring...my choice...and no set amount. It took me 2 years to find that ring. I love it but I only wear it when we go out....otherwise I might end up painting or doing some other crazy job with it on.

I have a nice watch but I don't wear watches anymore. I've had my ears pierced numerous times and they have all closed up. I do have one silver necklace that I like.

i have a ton of jewelry. but i dont really wear any of it. i have 9 holes all together in my ears and theres a small stud in every one that i dont take out ever, except on occasion to clean them. i wear a ring on each hand. i feel bad all the jewelry i have because i never wear any of it lol. but im pretty picky too when it comes to jewelry. i have one diamond ring that i wear, but i dont actually care that much for diamonds. the one i have has just a bunch of little chips in it so it sparkles, but it looks antique which is what i liked about it. i pity the man that tries to buy me jewelry in the future lol.

Big fan of women who were jewelry, particularly bracelets and body piercings anywhere but not through the nose (looks tackey to me).

As for myself I have have worn rings in the past. Currently wear two necklaces, both with special meaning to me.

I like jewelry but only if its diamond jewelry

I have my husband convinced that its better that way, as I only have a few big pieces of each, for example one pair of casual diamond studs, one pair of dressier diamond drop earrings, etc, rather than a thousand items of costume jewelry. Everything I own matches lol!

I'm very picky when it comes to my "crowned jewels". I can find the simplest things tacky. Like Betsey Johnson, her stuff is horrible. How can anyone like it?

I do love my Pandora bracelets though.
