As I got dressed this morning, I put a little bit more thought into my jewelry, knowing that I'd be posting about it. I settled on the following:
This necklace was another collaboration with Em, the jeweler who I wrote about here. I told her that I was looking for a chunky, light piece to wear with greys, blacks and purples for winter and fall (last year). I've always liked the presence (like, hello! look at me wearing this big thing!) of multiple strand necklaces. We settled on moonstone, and she added snow jade to the finished product, which is composed of briolettes, nuggets (both faceted and very flashy), ovals, coins, rounds and small rondelles. I love this necklace and don't wear it nearly as often as I should. When I wear black, I always think it looks like a scattering of stars.
The earrings are another Nordstrom's Off the Rack purchase. If you haven't noticed, they are my go-to for marcasite. I like studs, but not too boring. (I really wanted to make a joke about my bf there, but am having trouble deciding. I like my men like I like my earrings: studs, but not too boring! There. I think that worked out well.)
The outfit is a black sweater set and a dark denim skirt with beige stitching.
