Recently, I've been asked tons of questions about my jewelry. I'll always be more of a tasteful minimalist, but as with everything, there are some go-to pieces that I won't take off. Some of these items I've had for years, and others are fairly new; Some were gifted or milestone pieces, as well as investment items, or just fun fashion jewelry. I've assembled a list of the essentials here, but there are some that I remove and others I don't. Keep reading to find out a little more about each pieces from my everyday jewelry!
Fashion: You guys ask about my gold beaded bracelets more than anything! I have two that I wear everyday, the London, which are the smaller beads, and the Fashion Jackson, which are the larger beads. They are both from Miranda Frye so you can use code FJ10 for a discount! I rarely take these bracelets off, really only for the gym. I shower/sleep in them and they still look new! The Chloe is another Miranda Frye bracelet I wear, not everyday, but most days. This one is such a beautiful piece and looks so much more expensive than it really is!
Milestone: My Cartier Love bracelet was a piece I knew I would have to buy myself if I wanted it. Not only was it an investment, but it was purchased as a milestone piece. I had my first Instagram takeover on the LIKEtoKNOW.it account in 2017 and it was a HUGE achievement for me personally & professionally. While some might think it's silly that I bought myself a Love bracelet, I think it's extremely meaningful that I rewarded myself after an incredible accomplishment. I'm planning to have the inside engraved with "fashion jackson". I have never taken this bracelet off.
Fashion: The Shea necklace from Miranda Frye is one that I wear everyday (I never take it off). Its so delicate and looks gorgeous paired with anything! For Miranda Frye use code FJ10 for a discount. When I want to add some layers, I'll wear the London necklace and/or the horn necklace and pendant necklace from Missoma. I put both pendants on one chain to minimize tangling and I just liked the way it looked! I do take this off when I sleep/shower/workout because I don't want anything to happen to it. One more fashion style I always get asked about is my initial one. This was a gift from a friend, but I found a similar style on Etsy!
Sentimental: I have a delicate chain necklace with a single diamond and the initial 'W' for Will. I got this when we first started dating and only recently took it off to wear the fashion styles instead. I love the designer, Maya Brenner, because you can customize pieces of jewelry however you like. My exact necklace is 14K gold 2 character 16" with the diamond in position #2.
Sentimental: I have always dreamed of having a Rolex watch, and professionally 2019 was my best year ever. This was a piece I got at the end of the year rewarding my hard work. I think it is important to reward yourself, no matter the size. Setting goals, achieving them, learning from them, are all things to be proud of. This is a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 in Yellow Rolesor and features a champagne-colour dial and an Oyster bracelet.
Fashion/Function: I partnered with Garmin this year with the launch of their new Vivomove Luxe watch, which is actually a smart watch! Its the chicest smartwatch I have ever seen and its functionality is superb. You can read this post explaining why I love my Garmin Vivomove watch so much. I wear the 42mm in Gold with the white leather band or black leather band for daily wear, or the black silicone band for activities including fitness.
Everyday: I got this pair of CZ studs (6 ct/gold) a few months before my wedding and I ended up loving them so much, they have become my daily pair! I used to wear a pair of real diamond stud earrings, but I was always worried about losing them I decided to put away and save for special occasions. I'm obsessed with this CZ pair, they look great and I always get compliments on them! I also gifted my bridesmaids the 4 ct. studs and they loved them!
Fashion: For days I want to switch it up, the Ansley studs from Miranda Frye are my go-to. Use code FJ10 for a discount. I love that they are still similar to "diamond" studs, but they are a little more elevated and fun.
Investment: I do have a pair of vintage Chanel earrings (similar here) that I bought from What Goes Around Comes Around at the beginning on 2018. I only wear them on special occasions, or when I feel like dressing up a t-shirt and pair of jeans. I think everyone needs vintage jewelry at some point, and Chanel is definitely the way to go! I know they are not pictured, but they are definitely worth mentioning.
Fashion: On my right hand ring finger I have a plain gold cable ring from David Yurman & the thin gold Cartier Love ring (no diamonds). I like having the two stacked together, I think it's a fun way to wear the pieces. I also have a few Miranda Frye rings I like to alternate wearing. The first is the Emerson signet ring. I love signet pinky rings, I think they have such a cool vintage vibe. The other is the Noel ring. I like to wear this on paired with my DY diamond cable ring on my middle finger. Stacking rings is such an easy and fun way to mix up the look. For the Miranda Frye pieces, use code FJ10 for a discount!
Milestone: On my right hand middle finger I wear this David Yurman diamond/cable ring. I bought it as a gift to myself when I hit 100K followers on Instagram. I love looking at it as a reminder of how hard I've worked. I think it pairs so well with the other two rings on that hand.
Investment: On my left hand middle finger I have a pave diamond eternity ring made of yellow diamonds set in yellow gold. It almost looks like a gold band, but when you get close you can see all the delicate yellow diamonds. Its perfect for stacking or wearing solo. I purchased this from a local jewelry store, but I did find some similar on Etsy.
Sentimental: I honestly didn't want to share my wedding rings, just because they are so personal, but I get asked about them so much. For my engagement ring, I have a radiant cut diamond with a pave stone halo and band (please don't ask for size/cut/clarity). My wedding band is a petite emerald cut eternity band. It is low profile so it fits perfectly under my engagement ring without getting in the way. I also had a thin gold 1.5mm band made that I would wear in between the two rings for a more fun/fashion look. I love how it mixes in gold with the platinum.
