My daughter is young, and she never wears dangly ones. She has pierced ears and just has sleepers on. I would even go so far as to say that ear rings are not the fashion statement they once were. I don't see many people wearing them at all.
I have pierced ears and sometimes wear earrings. Sometimes I feel I am already wearing enough accessories and earrings would be too much. Other days I look in the mirror and decide my outfit needs earrings. I have quite a few pairs which I display on a wall hanging in my bedroom. This makes it easy to find the pair I want.
I used to wear them as a young girl, but I don't bother much thesedays. I don't have pierced ears, so I only have clip ons. I would only wear sparkly ones when going somewhere special at night. My hair covers my ears, so no one would see them any way. Maybe if I wore my hair up, I might wear some diamond earrings, but I don't wear them day to day. I don't see the need.
Apart from my wedding and engagement rings, earrings are the only other kind of jewellery I wear. I like cute ones with flowers on cats on them. My mother-in-law recently came back from the states, and she bought me beautiful ones with real flowers in them from Alaska. They look similar to these.
My had my ears pieced for my brother-in-laws wedding, years & years ago. Also had my 2 daughters done at the same time. I stopped wearing them a couple of years ago, but still have them in a yellow Whitman's Sampler dark chocolate box, about a 100 of them, but i've never counted them!I I don't know why I stopped wearing them.
I love my earings, they are a must for me,but I think I prefer to buy them in smaller boutiques as they do carry a different range, where as you go to Colette's or Lovisa and they are on a production line, meaning everyone else has the same.
I've so many pairs of earrings but don't wear them all that often. As my ears are pierced I find it uncomfortable to sleep with the post type as I sleep on my side but I do like to dress up my ears when I go out.
I used to wear lovely gold earrings of various designs.I still own all of them,being mainly antique ones, and some modern diamond ones.I just never go out anywhere much since becoming too ill to work,so I simply don't bother putting them on.I had my ears pierced when I was 15,so all of the earrings I own are for pierced ears.I fell in love with some rose gold Stud-style ones in the shape of gorgeous roses with all individual petals,and I knew that the only way I would ever be able to wear them,was to go and get my ears done!!! Way back in those days the doctors did this service, and I even had them listed as injections so Medicare paid for them!!! I still have that first pair of earring,which are timeless and very pretty!!
I always wear an earring in my right ear. I used to wear an earring in both ears, but earlier this year I had an ear infection after the back part of an earring (butterfly clip) got stuck in my ear lobe. A Google search shows this is quite a common thing. I had to go to hospital to get it cut out and there is no longer a hold on the left ear. I don't feel like taking any chances on putting in another hole ...
