What kind of jewelry do you like? Right now I am into vintage glass jewelry. Recently I've bought a lot of pieces on Etsy. I can wear a different pair of dangly glass earrings every day. They coordinate with my outfits and sparkle in the light. I also found pretty vintage glass necklaces, too.

These get lots of compliments.

Sometimes I go through periods where I wear the same thing every day. Gold hoop earrings, diamond pendant necklace. Since I dropped a few pounds and find myself opting for more sparkles instead. Yesterday I wore my string of pearls and pearl studs and felt absolutely dowdy.

What's your jewelry style? Do you wear something different every day, or the same nice piece every day?

I've always liked the selections at 1928 Jewelry Store, Vintage Bridal, Costume & Fashion Jewelry.

I don't wear much jewelry, usually just a pair of pretty dangly earrings to dress up an outfit. I might wear some bangles or this cool brass cuff my in-laws brought me from Africa, but that's about it. I rarely wear necklaces, but I do think they look cute.

I make jewelry too, so I can easily put together some crystal drop earrings or a bracelet if I want something new. I have about 20 different stones in different sizes (sodalite, rose quartz, adventurine, etc) and at least that many colors of Swarovski crystals. I like the natural look.

Same. I have a couple of things to use for formal occasions, etc but daily I just use earrings, and my ring and band.

I love charm bracelets, always have, but now I'm just really into different fun pieces and vintage ones as well. Spend a lot of time looking on ebay and etsy!

I love turquoise jewelry. Me, being 1/4 Cherokee, is a tradition. My father and grandma wore lots of turquoise too, when they were alive.

But I love a lot of cheap type jewelry. Stuff you can wear when going out to the club or bar. Or to the beach. Cheap bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.

Nothing expensive. Just cheap stuff that you can wear anywhere. I love them.

I wear the same pieces every day: e-ring, diamond wedding band, 3-stone ring (sapphire & diamonds), watch, diamond RB studs or large diamond hoops

Most of the time I wear those same pieces when going out to dinner or a casual event. (I have a pearl set that I sometimes wear.)

I have no shortage of costume jewelry for special occasions. My favorite pieces (which I used to collect) are from the Daniel Swarovski collection (most mesh pieces.)

Always on: Simple silver hoops
Fav One: steel mesh woven cuff bracelet my gram gave me. They made these bracelets in a steel factory in the area where she lived and she gave it to me as one of those "special" from gram presents. Everyone loves it and I have not seen anything like it anywhere.
