I love jewelry. Classic pieces and trendy items, hand made friendship bracelets and high end splurges...I literally love them all. Beautiful to look at, some pieces can even be conversation starters, like great artwork. You can hand down jewelry from one generation to the next...seriously, what's better or more sentimental than a stunning timeless heirloom? As you can see, I have a lot of thoughts and given a lot of thought as to what essential pieces everyone should own. Aside from a great pair of "wear with anything" stud earrings, a classic watch and an every day necklace, there are a few more items that can really elevate your accessories wardrobe.
