Lost and found. Who would think that my journey through lost earrings would to bring me to this. Jewellery is an expression of self. The self you are the self you have been and the self that you aspire to be.
For me the jewellery of my past tells of my youth. The chokers that I adorned in the 1980s. Studded leather to beaded black. Whilst trying to sneak out of the house with the shortest of short dresses, and lowest of low tops. Breaking all cardinal rules of dating, either the legs or the tits never both.
The bangles and leather wrist cuffs of the Debbie Gibson, Tiffany era. Now that was an era and a half. The boys oh the boys. I speak of a the boys as an accessory to the jewellery of course.
At present my jewels take me through a mid life dating journey. It’s a renewed unexpected endeavor. A glorious journey from men youthful and shy to old that are wiser and passionate, though a little more tired.
The men I date shape what jewels I wear. So here are my two simple rules for dating with jewels:
1. If they are aged between 20-35 wear your Less loved less expensive treasures. With this range of men, they are likely to put their parts in places most beers cannot reach and take your bodily decorations with them! I’m not saying all men in this age group are clumsy. Not at all. But they are unpredictable and if you want to keep those beautifully hand crafted angel wing earrings in tack or even together as the twins they are, then I would suggest leaving them warmly tucked up in their jewllery box. Alternatively if you’re thinking about loosing as ear or two in the near future go ahead!
2. If your date is a passionate older man that can speak many a romantic Latin based language display your most fantastic finds. These men will praise you highly for looking beautiful with all your trimmings. They show an eye for detail in their compliments and what you wear and how. They also show restraint and have mastered the art of seduction so will remove items of beauty with caution and consideration. Unless there are time restraints!
Alas there you have it. Go forth and date adorned or not. But be warned. If you love it, because let’s face it beautiful jewellery gives more long lasting pleasure than sex, wear it with your sister/brotherhood!
