I just answered the What jewelry are you wearing today??? thread and I wrote about my most complimented piece of jewelry: a pair of unassuming (but admittedly pretty) stud earrings. I have more “special” or expensive pieces, but these are the ones people notice and comment about.
Can you share pics of your jewelry that attracts the most compliments? Are these pieces ones you knew would attract attention or are you surprised that people like them so much? Thanks!

I love these! So cool! mine is a sculpted torso pendant by the artist Miguel borrocal. It’s not gold but a base metal. I wear it on a gold chain like below, or a rubber or leather cord, or a cheap wire choker from Etsy.

Lovely thread that gives happy vibe.

i started to be more keen and buy more jewellery only mid this year. Recently converted a pair of ear studs of little diamonds into an open bracelet. I've not worn the ear studs for years (not an ear accessory person); was gifted with sentimental story behind. I'm now glad I'm wearing it everyday, other than its getting most compliments. It's brand-less, personal, and love this bracelet most.

Lovely! And it goes great with your other bracelets. As a matter of fact, I have a pair of diamond earrings that I might turn into a bracelet just like yours!

It would have to be my grey and rose gold diamond choker. The cushion cut diamonds are gypsy set into geometric shapes.

People tend to notice and comment on it whenever I wear it. I was designing something for everyday wear with some sparkle but didn’t expect the amount of attention it garners.

I would love to see a photo!

One of my everyday pieces. A clear quartz ring with a burnt orange spessarite garnet crystal secretly included. I saw this on Etsy and it spoke to me. It was my dad’s birthstone and he’s passed away. The facets of the clear quartz in quite unusual so it’s got an interesting sparkle. I wear it with the vintage S/S Rolex I inherited from him and the ring gets more compliments.

I don't get compliments on my jewelry, but I would say it's my diamond cross.

I don't really own any jewelry, but I do get lovely comments from other men on my stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust with a black dial. :smile:

My mom's most commented on piece is probably the Sweet Alhambra butterfly necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels - I got her the yellow gold/mother-of-pearl choice and she wears it pretty much daily in the spring and summer. :smile:
