I've mentioned before on the blog that I typically don't wear a lot of jewelry. I never have, probably because most of my youth was spent on the pool deck or in sweats. Yuckk. Even though I now am in the real world with a job, I still tend to not wear a lot of jewelry. Mainly because I live in DC and go through security multiple times a day. I definitely don't want to be THAT person who holds up the line taking countless bracelets and rings off. So I tend to stick to the basics. Since I wear minimal jewelry, I usually invest in more expensive pieces. Pieces that I can wear on the reg and will last a long time. So for today's post, I'm sharing some of my favorite investment pieces.
Necklaces: I get most of my necklaces from Loft, Ann Taylor, Kendra Scott and BaubleBar. While these aren't relatively expensive stores, I usually find some gorgeous statement pieces from them. I wear the Courtney Bib as much as I possibly can, and the monogram is a great piece to pair with a bolder necklace. I also can't get enough wear out of my Kendra Scott tassel necklace. I wear it at least twice a week and am thinking of getting the black one next.
Earrings: Honestly, this area of jewelry is the most minimal for me. I believe that I look horrible in dangly earrings, so studs it is. I have my go-to pearls, diamond and gold studs. I alternate between these three.
Bracelets/Watches: Like I said above, I don't want to be "that" girl who holds up the line because I'm wearing ten thousand bracelets. So I have my Michael Kors watch, BaubleBar bracelet and various others that I wear most of the time. I also tend to look for pieces that don't have metal in them. That saves me lots of time when going through security at work.
Rings: I love rings. Rings are my favorite piece of jewelry, and an area where you can really make a statement. I tend to spend less money on rings though, because over time I've gotten pretty bad at taking them off to wash my hands, and ultimately losing them. But some of my favorites have been found from BaubleBar, C.Wonder (may it rest in peace) and H&M. H&M surprisingly has some great statement rings.
