Jewelry sets

Every big holiday (Christmas & Valentine's Day) I look through sale ads & see jewelry sets & wonder, how many people actually have a ring, earrings, bracelet, and necklace, or any combination of two or more.

When younger I used to want my pieces to match, i.e., I have pearl earrings & a necklace, & thought it'd be nice to have a ring too, maybe even a bracelet, but then again, maybe not.
I am not a big fan of having accessories be all matchy matchy.
Madonna getting upset with her daughter for dressing too slutty is like Mr. T getting upset with his son for pitying too many fools.
I think having earrings and a ring and a necklace and a bracelet is way overkill. I do sometimes like matching TWO pieces only.
To Trenell, MizKerri and geeky:
I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
I have matching earrings and necklace but I never wear them at the same time. It's either earrings OR necklace. I'm not into matching jewellery. It looks odd to me.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I voted partial. I don't mind seeing/having a couple of pieces match, but the whole set being all the same would be too much.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I like the matching sets. I never wear all of the pieces at the same time but I can mix and match which ones I wear each time.
I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.

I've long since stopped wanting such & was just curious about what others thought.

Weren't jewelry sets at one time the proper thing to do, like having your shoes match your purse, or wearing matching lipstick & nail polish?
I don't go for matching. If I'm wearing a nice necklace, I usually wear simple earrings in the same color metal.
I have some stuff that matches and some that doesn't. I rarely buy my own jewellry - I have lots, but almost all of it was given as a gift, inherited, passed down etc. I like either/or. Sometimes I like not to match at all or to only match two pieces. Sometimes I think all matched looks cool. I have one set that was built over time. My husband gave me a ruby ring for our first anniversary, matching ruby earrings our first Christmas together, matching ruby necklace this past Christmas, and a matching ruby bracelet the Christmas during our engagement. I don't HAVE to wear them all together but it's fun to have the possibility. (They also match one of my watches.) Other pieces I have stand on their own, like the emerald earrings that my grandmama left me in her will that remind me of her and I don't like to wear them with anything else other than my everyday jewellry (wedding rings, crucifix etc.)

If I buy anything that matches, it would be a necklace and matching earrings. I don't wear a lot of rings, and I hate bracelets.

I think I only have one or two sets that the necklace and earrings match, everything else is separate pieces.
I don't wear matching sets.

I replied separate pieces and that is what I do 98% of the time. Then I remembered my pearls. I will wear my pearl studs (or drops for dressy) with my strand of pearls. Just seems like the thing to do, I guess. Otherwise, I don't even have any exact matches!

I voted separate since that's how I usually wear pieces. I have a few sets (bracelet/necklace or earrings/bracelet or earrings/necklace) but not many. The only set I wear together is my black pearl necklace and earrings. They coordinate without being overkill. Otherwise, I just wear coordinating metals. I don't have any 3-or-more piece sets.

I have several set of matching but except the pearls don't wear them much. I have a huge collection but don't wear hardly anything except my family diamond, diamond cross (have to keep appearances up) and earrings.
