The Guide to Everyday-Wear-Jewelry
Lately we have seen more customers grasping the idea of "invest in quality". Rather than spending small dollars on costume jewelry that only lasts a few months before tarnishing people are building their collection of durable, fine jewelry that will last a lifetime. But where do you start your collection?
Start with the basics, the "wear-everyday, have-forever" pieces. Good, wear-everyday, have-forever jewelry should be versatile, taking you from morning to night.
Here are some ideas to start your collection:
Go for a simple necklace that can be worn alone or eventually layered with other necklaces once your collection grows.
We love a simple solitaire diamond pendant. Not crazy about diamonds? Go for a Gold or sterling silver pendant
Simplistic: Ed Levin Two-Toned Love Knot $375
2. Stack up in style
Stackable rings are great because they are slim and chic. You can mix and match them with different metals. I love a good tri-colored stack with Rose, Yellow and White gold.
Invest in bangles that fit your style. I personally like to mix White and Yellow Gold bangles together. A good Gold Rope Bracelet paired with a watch and other fun bracelets never goes out of style.

A Statement Bracelet: Constance Gildea Meadowgrass Diamond Cuff $1640
A pair of diamond or other precious stone studs should be at the top of your list. A simple pair of studs are forever timeless and can be passed down to the next generation in your family. They go with a sweater for day time and a cocktail dress for night.
Build a collection that will last you a lifetime. On a tight budget but have expensive taste? Try looking at Estate Collections. Consignment jewelry is a great way to start a collection off on a budget.
