That's disgusting! I think it's worse than wearing someone's ashes around your neck which is pretty bad in itself. 


 

I couldn't agree with you ladies more!!  Something about wearing teeth, ashes or any other human remain  just doesn't sit well with me.  I remember hearing years ago that Angelina Jolie & Billy Bob Thornton each wore a vial of each other's blood when they were married.......ugh

 I was going to say I don't wear large rings because I have small hands with short fingers.  My mom said our hands were genetically engineered to hold scrub brushes.  However I have just changed my response to say I will never wear jewelry with teeth in the setting.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Kind of Jewelry You Never Wear

I never wear semiprecious gems.  Hate them.  Cabochon is another type of jewelry I despise.  Anything that is popular & women like, I don't.  Tanzanite, Paraba, etc.  Sterling silver.  I don't like to take care of jewelry to make it shine.  I think tarnishing is ugly.  Don't like to touch any kind of jewelry in that state. Even to clean it.

 

Costume jewelry, plastic beads, cheap junkie stuff. I want something real.  Not artificial.  Gold plating.  When I want gold, it has to be solid through and through.  Horrible metal hidden under silver plating like Brass, Bronze, copper.

Re: Kind of Jewelry You Never Wear

I can't wear a wrist watch. It always stops working after wearing it for a day or two.  I must have some weird electromagentic field or something. 

 

I have a large collection of earrings of all kinds.  I like beaded braclets not bangles.  I also like long necklaces.  Most of my jewelry is inexpensive.

No more earrings for me.  I was never comfortable in them and my holes closed.  I just don't bother with them.  They just sit in the jewelry box.  Fortunately, I never had a lot of them. What I do wear a lot are bracelets. And I never stack them.  Just one on one arm.

 

Oh and because I'm left handed, I've never worn a watch in my life. Cell phones are a god send because of this.

Re: Kind of Jewelry You Never Wear

I never did like -

Dangle earrings.

I like studs and medium hoops.

Statement necklaces or beaded necklaces.

I like a chain, with or without a pendant.


I seem to be going back to liking simpler designs over last few years anyhow.

Re: Kind of Jewelry You Never Wear

I won't wear big bold statement necklaces or small stud earrings.  I also don't care for various holiday jewelery.
