If I were filthy rich, I’d buy a new piece of jewelry every week. I love the stuff and don’t know many women who wouldn’t agree. It’s so much fun, no matter what it costs.
I wear the same four (or five) bracelets on my right wrist every day and get compliments on them all the time. I guess you’d call them my signature pieces.
I collected old charms over many years for a necklace I wore constantly. Eventually, I tired of it. Now I’m not loyal to any one necklace.
My inexpensive rings consistently get more praise than the costlier rings.
I don’t care about big diamonds, emeralds, sapphires or rubies. Really big diamonds look cheesy to me. I prefer funkier, less traditional looks.
Pins aren’t my style, although I keep thinking they will be someday. I look silly in most earrings but I keep buying them.
I don’t buy or wear jewelry to impress anyone, although I think my Hermes watch makes an impression, anyway.
Most every piece I own has a story behind it, from the ancient wax filled gold necklace from the Far East to the Chanel watch my aunt gave me when she got sick.
My daughter never cared about jewelry until a few years ago, when she appropriated the stacking rings I collected.
Three women have offered to buy my Chanel necklace from the eighties.
There’s jewelry for every one of our FOF personalities and styles. That’s a lot of jewelry.
P.S. My latest acquisition is this 18k rose gold necklace with diamond eyed bat charm. It’s designed by Jack Vartanian. My FOF friend, Cathy Paul, said it’s perfect for me because I’m batty. LOL.
