    I got my first pair of earrings at the age of 11 and I used to wear earrings all the time, in fact i did the naughty thing and slept in them but now I only tend to wear earrings if I'm going on a night out.

    I was wondering if people barely wear their earrings, or keep the same pair of earrings in for ages?

      I have  less than 100 pairs of dangling earrings, because i make them myself, just sort of fancy ones, not real, I wear it everyday depending on what the color of my clothes! I use to sell them before...but I stopped my business when I went here

      I have got three piercings, the last two studs I had in the summer. I haven't taken the earrings off yet but I am going to replace them with another set of studs so I never have to take them off all the time, my ear holes close very quickly when I don't have earrings in them. I wear different earrings for my 'birth' piercings.

      Basically, I wear earrings daily, as I am jewellery maker, I wear different colours of earrings every day. I can't go out without them, I love earrings more than anyother item of jewellery. I have got earrings collections for different 'categories' - casual, work, party, etc.

      I wear earrings every day. I wear a different pair every day and I switch earrings every day. In the morning to school or work I wear one pair and at night to party or relax with friends I wear a different pair.  I love them, they are like a fetish to me and often I find myself in another boutique or the mall buyina another pair. Its weird because my mom says I change earrings as muuch as I change panties. I don't agree with her, I think that she may be a little exaggerant. I have noticed that the earrings I wear often bring out my face or eyes, so why not indulge. If they are making me look beautiful and finishing off a great outfit why not just put them on. My favorite pair of earrings are a pair that is costume jewelry. I love them, they are green pearls, in fact I have them on right now. I wear an assortment, sometimes I wear real earrings, real diamond, gold and silver and other times I wear costume jewelry, either way I find it essential to have a pair on. Whatever the occasion!

      I wear earrings every single day, in fact if I walk out of the house with them I kind of freak out. I think it is a very feminine piece, one that really complements any woman's face. I switch them up depending on the outfit and occasion, but for the most part either studs or pearls.

    I wear earrings all the time.  The majority of the time I wear small diamond stud earrings.  I wear other earrings on other occasions.  If I'm wearing studs, I'll sleep with them in, anything larger is uncomfortable.

    I have my ears pierced twice, so I tend to change the front pair everyday, but keep the second pair in longer. I can only wear gold or silver, anything else irritates. Another thing I've seen in teenagers lately, is when they have thick rings attached to the ear lobes, that actually have a hole in the middle of the lobe. Really weird!

    wow thanks for the response, maybe I should make more of an effort and start wearing more earrings now especially since I could wear three in each ear.

    Any tips for keeping them in pairs, I'm kinda lazy when it comes to jewellery and I tend to take stuff and leave it where I'm standing!

      Put your earrings in little transparent bags so you don't lose them, put the bags in a jar, empty tube of any food item., mine is a 'former' cookie jar. Or you can cut post cards into little bits, hole punch them and put your earrings in.

      The other is to buy or make an earring stand. See instructables site for details of the latter. I am going to make one for my everyday earrings so I can see them at a glance.

      Finally, you can link your earrings together by using one of the ear backs to link with the other, this will secure it. The possibilities are endless, it just takes a lot of imagination. Please let me know how you get on.

      I own well over a hundred pair of earrings, both real and good quality costume. I have only single piercings in each ear-have tried to get another piercing twice and both times it they got infected! Although I have piercings, I also sometimes wear clip-ons. People don't always realize it's ok to wear clip-ons even if you have piercings. I can't sleep in EITHER type, real or costume. I am allergic to costume, but can wear for short periods.

      When it comes to keeping them in pairs, If they are a hoop design, I link them together. For the studs, I have made fabric covered, thin cardboard wall holders for them in the past, that hang up with a ribbon or string. Then, you just pierce holes in the cardboard for each pair to attach them side by side. This has worked very well for me. You can use posterboard or something like that and either cover with fabric glued on, or decorate the posterboard with markers or even acrylic paints (as long as you don't get the cardboard too wet).

    I have four piercings in each ear, and to be honest the only earrings I tend to wear 24/7 are the earrings in my cartilage. The other piercings I usually only put earrings in for special occasions - such as holidays, weddings, parties, etc.

      Personally, I love the men in earrings thing, when it is done tastefully (not too big or crazy, I suppose). My husband has pierced ears, but doesn't wear any earrings anymore because of his job, so he is out of the habit. One thing I am curious about-I see mostly the younger folks (guys predominately) that have what I call "spacers" in their ears. You know, the larger, round disks, the size of a quarter or so, in the earlobes. How are those inserted??? Is there a process of working up to bigger and bigger sizes until you get to the size you want? And what happens if you decide you don't want them any longer?

        I used to take mine out religiously every morning before work, then put them back in after work. One day my boss, who also wears them and must have noticed the holes in my ears, told me to put them in. He says they make me look ten years younger, so I never, ever take them out anymore smile

    I try to match my earrings with each of my outfits. If I am going to a place that is extra special, I wear something that is just that little bit more expensive, but I think that if you are paying a lot for your outfit, then you should accessorise with a bit more effort paid to the earrings because they are usually, in my opinion just as important as the type of bag and shoes you wear.
    During the day, I wear a pair of plain gold studs, unles I have a pair that match what I am wearing on the day.

    I never wear them... I hate them!  The clip-on ones are uncomfortable and the ones for pierced ears freak me out.  I had my ears pierced for the first and only time at the ripe old age of 36. I wore the little studs they gave me for a few weeks without any problems, then switched to dangly ones.  I found them fiddly to put on and always worried about injuring myself or catching them on something.  Then one day I forgot to put them in at all until about 3.00 pm and when I tried to do so, I found my earlobes were already healing over. So that was the end of pierced ears (and earrings) for me.

    I wear it pretty often last time. Nowadays, i don't really wear it already as my ear seem to have a slight infection. Am still trying to figure out, which pair of earrings caused that.

    For now, it would probably be once a week.

    every day. i have 6 earrings per ear. 3 are still healing. 3 if I remove the jewelry for too long will probably close up. 2 will leave a very noticeable hole. and 4 may shrink a little but won't be too bad not to have.

    i do have dressy earrings for some of them, even though they're a stretched, they're are fake diamonds on them. pretty neat. i've never worn them though bc my hair covers my ears most of the time.

      Durning the 70s when "chicks" had one hole in each earlobe, I had three in my right ear, just to be different.  When EVERYONE started wearing multiple earrings, I stopped wearing them altogether.  For years!  Now I wear one per ear maybe twice a year.
