I wrote a similar post on my everyday jewelry last year, but I wanted to update it because I've added to my collection since. Specifically, there are two necklaces that I absolutely love wearing and I wanted to share them with you in detail.

My current jewelry philosophy is all about simplicity, pieces that you can wear alone or layered and that offer just the right amount of sparkle. It's that little twinkle peeking out from a basic white tee, that shine of gold across the fingers. Jewelry is the ultimate way to tie a look together and elevate your daily outfits. My goal is to always look polished but effortless. The pieces below in some combination are what I reach for - sometimes I wear one or two, sometimes I wear them all at once.  I'm including exact links too!


Bar Studs: I've had my ears pierced since I was baby but I rarely wear earrings. My earlobes are sensitive, so I usually have to wear real gold or earrings with hypoallergenic posts. When I do wear them, I reach for these gold bar studs. They are comfortable (I've even slept with them on) and weightless! They're the perfect everyday earring and look so sweet no matter what other jewelry I decide on pairing them with. They also look more current and more unique than a basic gold or diamond stud.

Stacking Gold Band: Some people stack bracelets, I like to stack rings. A thin gold band is a great addition when you're wearing more than one ring because it doesn't compete for attention. I like wearing mine on my pointer finger.

Raw Herkimer Diamond Ring: I love gemstone jewelry. During the Winter I go for labradorite and pearls; during the Summer I prefer moonstone, turquoise, and opal. The great thing about this herkimer diamond ring is that it goes with everything!



Coin Necklace: Coin necklaces have been trendy for the better part of two years, and I'm completely on board with them. Whatever your style, they look chic on everybody. Mine is by Gorjana and it's called the sunburst coin necklace. It has a tiny opal in the center that reflects light beautifully. I wear it all.the.time. I let it be the focal point of my jewelry look because it's such a pretty piece. It's completely adjustable as well, so I like moving the length up and down depending on the top I'm wearing.

Gold Choker or "Mini" Necklace: Chokers or mini necklaces are the perfect layering piece. This one has a lot of movement so when the discs catch the light just so, it's sparkle city! It's the perfect base for a delicate necklace look.


My rule of thumb for choosing what jewelry to wear is to begin with one piece that you want to focus on, and then let the other pieces act in accordance to compliment it. Sometimes I think people overdo it with a ring on each finger, 3 or 4 necklaces, stacks of bracelets. I mean it's a little much right? Like a little girl playing dress-up in her mother's closet. Pick a couple rings, 1 or 2 necklaces, the gold bar studs, maybe a simple beaded bracelet or gold cuff. It looks effortless, but also intentional.

What are some of your favorite pieces of jewelry? Is there a brand you love? Have a great weekend, I'll see you back here soon 💗

  1. We have the same taste in jewelry and ever since I really curated my collection I haven't had the urge to shop for new pieces.

  2. I love more dainty and minimalist jewelry and the pieces I like to go all out are earrings, everything else, necklaces, bracelets and rings, I prefer minimalist pieces like yours. I'm still learning to wear jewelry and what looks best because for years I didn't wear anything, I didn't like it, it felt uncomfortable and I always forgot to put it on before leaving the house anyways but now I'm getting more interested in it and you've definitely helped me see what looks good and how to style and layer, I'm gonna try it out and see.

  3. Funny, until you mentioned it here I didn't really realize that you don't wear earrings (or not big, noticeable ones anyway!). And yet I still think of you as a jewelry person since you're always wearing some jewelry when I see you! You have beautiful pieces and I love that Gorjana coin pendant!

  4. I have a weakness for delicate gold pieces and can't seem to stop adding to my collection! Your coin necklace is perfection and I wear a thin gold ring on my pointer finger nearly everyday - I feel naked without it!

  5. I agree with the way you wear jewelry. I like a statement piece and then classic pieces everywhere else. And when in doubt, go classic or smaller!
