c/o Anjolee Jewelers ring | c/o MyMonogramNecklace bracelet
Usually when it comes to jewelry, I have two requirements for what it’s gotta be: minimal and gold. So, here I am venturing a little bit out of the box with a couple of silver pieces… and so far, I’m really liking ‘em! I know that for some people, gold jewelry can be a little too gaudy, and while I don’t necessarily agree, I can definitely see the appeal of understated silver – it’s less flashy and it lends itself to every day wear with its cooler street vibe. An added bonus for all my non-single ladies: silver accessories easily match classic, every day pieces like wedding and engagement rings (Unless of course you’re Carrie Bradshaw circa Aiden’s first big mistake).
The best part about both of my new silver pieces? They were 100% customized by me! So even as I dared to venture beyond my usual style, I’ve still managed to keep a bit of “me” in each piece :) Read on for details!
This ring from Anjolee is a customized piece I designed, featuring diamond and topaz stones. I know topaz is a November birthstone and I’m a March baby, but I chose it because it’s my mother’s birthstone, and it’s one of my many ways of incorporating mementos of my family into my daily life as a constant reminder of the most important things to me :)
Anjolee offers a wide range of affordable and customizable jewelry: rings, earrings necklaces and of course the classic diamond wedding band – so it’s a great online destination to shop around for investment pieces, or even just to design your dream ring to save on your wedding-inspired Pinterest board ;)
This piece from MyMonogramNecklace.com was simply designed with my name on it. I’ve always wanted a personalized monogram bracelet or necklace like this, so I was so excited to have the opportunity to design a piece of my very own!
