My Jewelry Essentials

Similar to building a wardrobe with your clothes there are certain jewelry items that every woman should have in their arsenal. These are pieces that will carry you from work, to a night out, to effortless weekends. If you invest in these pieces they are likely to last you a lifetime but there are also some decent quality, budget friendly options out there.

A Strand of Pearls: As Jackie Kennedy said, "Pearls are always appropriate." Pearls are a timeless classic that look great at any age. They can add a a touch of class and sophistication to a variety of outfits.

A Delicate Necklace: A delicate necklace is perfect for every day wear. It's a piece that can just be completely thoughtless. It is also a great piece to wear if you want to keep the focus more on a certain clothing item you are wearing and less on your jewelry.

A Statement Necklace: Statement necklaces are fun and can really make an outfit. They can add some pizazz to a boring look. If you only have one, I recommend getting one that's neutral and will match any outfit.

Pearl Earrings: Pearl earrings are my go-to earrings. They're pretty without being flashy. I wear mine pretty much everyday. Most of the time I even forget I'm wearing them, but I feel naked without them in.

A Long Layering Necklace: This is a piece that's great on it's own but is also fun to mix and match with other necklaces to change up the look.

Men's Wear Inspired Watch: We use our phones to tell time more than watches now. However, a great watch can really pull a look together. I also like to play with mixing a good watch with different bracelets. Go for a metal or leather strap to keep it classic and sophisticated.

Diamond Studs: Similar to pearl earrings these match anything and everything. They can add a touch of sparkle to any outfit. They look great with everything from a t-shirt to an elegant gown. Don't feel like you have to spend a ton of money on a pair either, cubic zirconia will serve the same purpose.

A Delicate Bracelet: This is a great classic piece for when you don't want a bunch of bracelets on but don't want your wist to go bare either.

Layering Bracelets: It's good to have a few layering bracelets that you can use to make different bracelet stacks. You can wear them on their own or mix and match for a variety of looks and styles.
