Do you go for the most outrageous baubles or stick with the classics?
My jewelry collection is rather spartan.
I attribute this to the fact that I wear "fine" jewels more often than "faux" jewels.
But not always...
"Basic classic earring collection"
I am always wearing my 30th anniversary diamond studs.
I can wear two pairs of earrings at a time and often do.
In my opinion these are bolder
a bit more arty
yet still within my comfort zone.
A mix of vintage pins
a MOP scarf ring that Ines de la Fressange says is a fashion "no no!"
I have worn the alien ET style pin on a black cashmere sweater
it certainly got attention.
rhinestones by Canadian maker Gustave Sherman
considered to be fashion jewelry at the time it was designed.
Sold by Birks for a modest price point in the 50's and 60's
(Father gave Mother many parure sets for Christmas and birthdays)
Now the prices are crazy!
They are great fun to wear on a denim jacket or a black dress.
Check this great look on Pinterest.
I was looking online for a Sherman necklace in clear rhinestones
sadly they are priced around $350 for a simple one.
I found a similar necklace on Ruby Lane Antiques and am waiting for it to arrive.
Hope it comes soon!
So where do you fit in with your taste in jewels?
Are you a minimalist or a maximalist?
