I’ve never been much of a jewelry person. I wear the exact same jewelry every day. This is mostly out of laziness, and due to the fact that jewelry kind of bothers me. I’ve tried to do the statement necklace and rock the arm candy but inevitably I wind up taking it off because I find it so irritating. I don’t know how it doesn’t bother people to type or write with tons of bracelets on. I can’t do it.
So here is my everyday jewelry:
Gold Anchor Infinity Necklace
I bought this at TJ Maxx for $16 about two years ago and it has become my everyday staple. Partly because I always feel like I should be wearing an anchor (cause I’ll always be a sorority girl), and partly because every single time I wear it, someone compliments me. It’s definitely a more unique piece, but it’s still simple and I love it.
Here is a similar item from Etsy.
Duh. It’s my favorite thing ever. N knew what I wanted (a simple solitaire) and he sent photos from my Pinterest page to the jeweler. The man is a genius. Well done N, well done.
Much to my surprise, when N and I got engaged his Mom presented me with earrings to match my ring. When I opened them, I believed they were really nice cubic zirconias or some other stone and was obviously very openly thankful to her for her generous gift (Because I do not live in a world where I receive 3 diamonds in one day. That’s just not something I could even fathom.). I had no idea they were diamonds.
Later when I went to put them on, I found that the backs were screw on. Huh? I thought. Weird. And then I said to N, “I think these earrings might be real diamonds.” To which he replied, “Um yeah they are. What did you think they were?” WHAT? And now you’ll have to rip these earrings out of my cold dead ears, because I haven’t taken them off since. In other news, I feel like this was a pretty good sign that my mother-in-law likes me.
I hope that didn’t seem braggy. It was a really lovely gift and I’m still pretty stunned.
These are obviously a recent addition to my usual jewelry. Prior to this, I rotated between 3 pairs of gold studs from Forever 21 until the gold rubbed off and then I’d cycle in a new pair, also from Forever 21.
Long Gold Necklace
For the days when I really need a long necklace to make a look work, I swap out my infinity necklace for this one. It was $3.80 from Forever 21 and naturally, the gold has rubbed off along the neck area. When will I learn to just go ahead and buy the nicer versions of things?
So there you have it. If you saw me in person, you can bet I’d be wearing some combination of the above.
Are you also someone who wears the same jewelry every day? If you aren’t, do you have any suggestions about how to get used to changing things up each day?
