Does anyone else prefer "fake" jewelry (plastic rings and earrings, etc.) over "real" jewelry?

For one thing, I'm allergic to gold, but mostly I just like the cutesy stuff like chunky plastic rings (right now I have a big, black plastic bow ring on one hand and a Ctrl ring on other lol). I love Claire's, even though most of their stuff is meant for younger people (but hey, I'm on 21).

  • I love all jewlery especially the costume or fake stuff there is so much variety. A friend of mine is allergic to all medals and black rubber. She has all of her jewlery hand man and it's really cute.3

  • I like both. I love real jewelry because I when I receive it, it's always for a special moment that I don't want to forget. On the other hand, I love "fake" jewelry since I can wear it without the worry that if my son breaks it, I won't be super sad.

  • I like making jewelry. I'm not a silversmith (yet..) but i am into making earrings. I hope to get good enough to sell some. Costume stuff I guess. :) Also, I like real for special occasions. My dh and I got white gold bands for our anniversary.

  • Nope. I like simply, elegant jewelry, mostly in white gold with diamonds or sapphires. I don't like anything too flashy or large, either.

  • i prefer real gold/white gold/platinum, as all my rings/braclets/watches and 95% of my earrings, too...but i do have a small assortment of costume necklaces-mostly long, drapey styles, and a few sterling silver pieces, as well.

  • I wish I could wear fake stuff. I can't. I have to have sterling silver especially for earrings. I don't buy much obviously haha
