Re: All day gold show input

I collected real gold jewelry since I was around 13 years old.  I always asked for and received some for Christmas and birthdays.  I have never been a costume jewelry fan.


Needless to say, I have accumulated a lot.  I probably have over 300 pairs of 14 and 18k earrings and hundreds of bracelets including maybe 15 bangles and a few statement necklaces and some rings.


When I retired, I stopped wearing it.  I wear the same pieces everyday that I do not remove.  My daughter works in jewelry and she has a lot too.  My granddaughters are not Interested.  They both have pierced ears and never wear earrings.


I should sell it, but I will hang on to it.  Gold is better than cash in a bad economy.  I don't plan on buying anymore.


To be honest, I don't see many women wearing good jewelry anymore.  I guess it's not on trend.
