I don’t have any particular rules, but I feel naked without my wedding ring.
Also, this is sort of different, but does anyone feel a connection between diamond stud size and age? I wear 1ctw studs most days and I feel like the size is perfect for me right now. I know it’s completely in my mind, but when I wear my smaller diamond studs I feel like I look younger. And even though I do plan to upgrade to a larger size eventually I have no interest in doing so right now because I feel like anything larger would make me look older than I am. This is just on me personally, I never see other women and think “wow those earrings make her look young/old” and I know it’s all in my mind anyway. Does anyone else feel this way or is it just my own flavor of crazy?
I would say you’re not the only one to think this way for sure! I mean, I don’t personally, but my studs are just a part of my earring wardrobe and not my “staple”. I can go weeks without wearing my studs at all!
But my mom for example, who wears almost exclusively studs at this point (her other earrings come out once in a while, but studs became her staple around the age of 50 or so) found that the pair that she used to wear (purchased in her 20s/30s) didn’t cut it for her anymore because she considered them incongruous with her age and like she was trying to look younger. So she bought a second pair at a significant jump and those are the studs she wears more often while her smaller pair is reserved for occasions where she doesn’t want to draw too much attention to herself.
I always thought multiple pairs of studs were kind of a waste, but I’m coming around to this thought process.
