My jewelry is one of my favorite things! I consider there to be four key items in this catagory: bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings and I organize my treasures as such. On a “no jewelry” day I will wear a pair of white pearl studs, my gold Georgetown class ring, and a gold bow ring from Kate Spade. Then depending on my mood, my outfit, or the occasion I will accessorize accordingly. Usually large bangles do not get paired with over sized cocktail rings and statement necklaces rarely overlap with big earrings . Other than that, I have no real rules to how I apply my jewelry.
In high school my jewelry collection began as it was one of the only ways I could dress up my Catholic School uniform and show my individual style. A white polo actually proved to be a great solid background for a statement necklace, drop earrings or fun bracelets. Granted, freshman year my daily jewelry was pretty much limited to pearl studs and the occasional bangle, but to me it was stepping out and I got more adventurous as I progressed through my teen years.
