This week: I am the type who sleeps in and then rushes to get dressed and I usually end up without any jewelry because I don’t have time to pick anything out. I guess what I am looking for is a couple of simple jewelry pieces that I can wear permanently, so that I always have something, even if isn’t much. I prefer gold. –Ashley
Hi Ashley. Great idea! A particularly good piece for this dilemma is a simple pendant necklace. You can pick a pendant that speaks to your personality, so that you feel that the jewelry represents you but is also simple enough that it will go with everything we wear. A couple of pieces worth checking out are Jacquie Aiche’s Love Necklace ($238), Gorjana’s Alphabet Charm Necklace ($50), and Anna Beck’s Gili Boxed Reversible Disc Necklace ($108). Something else to consider is a thin gold ring with a small stone. We like Jennifer Meyer Jewelry’s 18k Gold Thin Ruby Ring ($175). Happy shopping!
