If you've read this blog for a while, you know that I love me some jewelry. Just this weekend I was putting my closet back together and realized the extent of my necklace collection. I may have a teensy little addiction:
However, lately I have been more and more drawn to simple pieces that I know will look great ten years from now. Of the 30+ necklaces shown above, I think the one I've worn most often in the past five months is the simplest - the Dana necklace designed by Noa Sade of Lionette. (the picture below shows three)
All season I've been aspiring to recreate everyone's favorite layered necklace pin (check out the Kei Jewelry Etsy shop here) and load my hands with delicate rings instead of chunky tortoise cuffs and enamel necklaces:
Check out a super cheap option and my favorite new designer after the jump:
I've also been admiring these cheap little gems from Urban Outfitters:
However, one brand that has me drooling over my keyboard is one I discovered via a sweepstakes over at A Cup of Jo. Alexis Russell Designs sells some of the most perfect understated pieces I've seen in a while. They are not cheap, but definitely not unattainable, and I found several pieces that would make a welcome addition to my jewelry box for years to come.
So, do you think bigger is better when it comes to jewelry or are you embracing the simple style lately? Do tell!
