How many pairs of earrings do you actually wear?

On one hand I wish I could pull this off. On another no way. Could you imagine how expensive it would be to have this many diamond (if they were mined diamonds) studs? LOL

Honestly, just my diamond studs. I don’t have loads of fashion earrings as I’m really allergic. I own 3 other gold pairs which I rarely wear. I was debating getting some Tiffany hardware earrings but when I think about it, it’s just stress shopping due to covid.

I regularly wear:
"Diamond" studs
Pearls, three different colors
Gold hoops
Silver hoops
Gold heart dangles

So, 7 in regular rotation

I have a pair of bezeled diamonds that I love, but one needs a new back. So, I really should say 8.

This thread has me thinking about all the things in my jewelry box. I need to make the effort to give all the pretties their days in the sun. Today I pulled out a pendant I rarely wear. Maybe I'll try to do that with one piece each day.

I usually live in Pearl studs for work but have a good dozen or so other coloured stones and diamond varieties that I wear evenings and weekends. But I’m a bit obsessed with sets and if I have a coloured stone ring I fret until I can get a pair of earrings to go with it - regardless of whether I wear them!

I have a pair of studs in every gold color but in different shapes, 1 pair of dressier drop earrings, 4 pair of pearl earrings (freshwater, 2 different size Tahitian, baroque blue silver Akoya) and at least 10-12 pair of fashion jewelry earrings in different designs. So I may be overboard, but I don’t think you are.

:mrgreen2:3 pair !
3 pair !
:appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:
Not quite the answer to the OP
But i got my all 6 earings in, plus 1 on Gary
I did ask if he would like to get 3 on each side like Bruce :mrgreen2:
Saddly he's not a fan (of Bruce) :(2
I also don't think he likes my style choices that i base on Bruce :lol:


So i always find a sleeper goes in better when its been a while
so i used my buzzy bee to get the peircing comfortably open then i just shoved in what ever i could find

Anyway i said I'd wear some pearl earings today :mrgreen2: 20210118_144549.jpg 20210118_144522.jpg

I mean i do beleave in mix and match but only up to a point !

Imangine having a pet cat with all those keepers :lol:

That person's cat probably has more piercings than he does. :knockout:

Imagine him going through TSA's metal detector at the airport.
"Sir, please step aside and remove all jewelry."

BTW, what are, "keepers"?

:lol:
Keepers are 'ear' rings that are the small round hoops that go 'all around' without a backing on them

Are keepers not removable by the wearer?

I googled Keeper earrings and this is what it showed me.

Yes
They open and close but kind of click back into the round
maybe you guys call them something different
Maybe they are called keepers because they keep the whole open ? :mrgreen2:
I have an older friend who told me in her day this is what they first used in new holes - before those piercing guns that fire in studs

I guess I'm not a competent gay man.
I'm clueless about earrings.

I hope they don't take away my gay card. :cry2:

Sorry, I still don't know who that is.
I don't follow much TV or popular culture.

And who is Gary? :confused:

Sure wish I was psychic, or had a photographic memory.
