Default Real or Faux?

Do you bring the real deal, or is it cubic zirconia?

Trip, with her book & tea!

Hi Trip,

No, I never take the "real" jewelry! It goes in the safe deposit box before we leave and the fake stuff comes out!

I'd be devastated if I lost any of my "good stuff" since most of it came from my DH or my dear late Mother!

It's only sentimental value, but that's very important to me!

First cruise is less than two months away, but I am bringing the real stuff. Why have it if you can't wear it. Sounds like the perfect time to pull it out!

Hi Trip,
Most of the time around the town, I wear fake of hardly any jewerly.
On a cruise, I take the real ones. I feel very "rich" when I wear them.
On a special occasion, bithday,etc I wear a little something. My dh has given me some really beautiful things which he is very proud he picked out.

oh pleeease its the good stuff or nothing! I have it and i want to wear it.
Ladies - important tip: If a stranger approaches you and admires your jewlery - especially diamond necklace or earings and asks if they are real or not, thank them and tell them that they are good quality fakes. It could save you from being robbed. This happend to me, a gentleman(use the term loosely) approched me admiring my diamond stud earings, asked me if they were real, i told him thank-you but no they are good quality fakes, he smiled and walked away. I told my DH(retired PD) about this and he told me " good call" you probably just avoided being robbed.

I have some nice real stuff-but not as glitzy as I want to be for formal night-so my only real "diamonds" I wear is my wedding band and my past-present-future anniversary band.

I have a great white topaz and sterling silver line bracelet I got at QVC years ago-that I always take-my real diamond bracelet is "church nice" but not glitzy formal wear nice-so I like this much better for formal night!

I have a beautiful line neclklace done in CZ briolettes and sterling silver plated with platinum. This had been $129 but I bought it at Diliards on clearance for $35! I also have a pair of briloteee CZ dangle earings tha t look great with the necklace.

Now I do have a great geninue turquoise nugget necklace that hubby calls my "Wilma Flinstone" necklace. I almost always bring that with me for casuals nights as I wear alot of turquoise, teals and navy and the necklace looks great with those colors!

I also have a few things that were my Mom's likea 14k gold seiko watch. I would never chance losing it on a cruise so it and my orignial engagement ring that I no longer wear are in my bank's safety deposit box.

I do occasionially take the watch out-but the ring pretty much stays there-not that either are valuable-at least not in $$$s-they are valuable in sentiment.
