A little creativity and luck could turn your favourite vintage earrings into jewellery that you’ll never forget.
You won’t be able to wear them to a wedding, and that’s OK.
But you can buy earrings with the same charm that you wear them every day, no matter how old they are.
That’s because earrings are not made of plastic.
They’re made of gold.
“I would love to have a gold earring, and the best part of my life is that I have gold earrings,” says Tiffany, who is known for her jewellery designs and has a collection of more than 70,000 gold earls.
Tiffany says that even if her earrings aren’t made of silver, they’re still precious and a lot of attention has been paid to the material and the way it is used.
We’re not talking about a piece of jewellery made of steel or aluminum, but an earring made of a gold wire that has been polished and shaped to a different shape and then placed in a gold ring, she says.
It’s also a very delicate process.
Tiffany explains that the jewellery is cut with a diamond-cutter and polished using a laser to create a mirror.
If the earrings have a pattern on them, the jeweller uses a very precise technique to shape them into a shape that looks like a human head.
“If it looks like the human head, the earring is gold,” she says, and if it looks too human, the jeweler removes it and the earpiece is discarded.
To create earrings that are not only fashionable but also lasting, Tiffany says her favourite piece of jewelry is the ear ring that she made for her late husband, the actor and musician Johnny Depp.
Johnny was a real jeweler, he would take the diamonds from the jewellers jewelry, and he would carefully shape the ear rings, she explains.
“He used to tell me to wear a gold bracelet that he would make, because he always had a gold one, but he would have a little bit of gold ear ring.”
If you wear it to a birthday party or something, I would say, ‘Here’s a little gold ring that you can wear with that gold bracelet,'” she laughs.
While Tiffany is no expert on the art of jewellering, she has found that gold ear rings have an artistic quality that makes them very wearable.
When Tiffany has a birthday or a wedding and a guest walks in, she tells them, “I just had my gold ear-rings,” and they respond with “Wow!
That’s great,” and smile, says Tiffany.
She then puts the ear-ring on and they start laughing and looking at the rings.
The gold ear, or gold bracelet, is also a reminder of how much you care about a ring that is handmade.
After the wedding, Tiffany will go out and buy some gold rings that have the same design, but with a different pattern.
I don’t like gold ear ornaments, because it’s a bit too fragile and there’s too much of the pattern, says she.
But there are a few good ones out there that I can recommend.

Her advice? “
I’m not sure how many you should buy,” she asks.
“If you’re buying earrings in person, you should get at least four or five different sizes and different designs,” she explains, “and if you want to buy ear rings that are just like a bracelet, you’re better off buying two or three.”
