As I was having lunch with a stylist friend of mine, one of the topics that came up for discussion was the idea of modern jewelry. If you think about it, in the past, there were quite a few rules in place in terms of what we wear, how, and when, especially in regards to jewelry. I vividly remember my grandmother's jewelry box, where pieces were cautiously organized by occasion, and everyday sparkle was definitely kept separate from the evening, dressier jewels. Today, however, the rules are changing and as far as jewelry is concerned, it’s much more anything goes, and we are finally free to mix and match anyway we like and wear bigger, bolder prices for day and daintier ones for night.
Monica Vinader jewelry became a bit of a staple for me this year. I discovered it a little over a year ago, and since then, I seldom leave the house without a few layered bracelets and rings. I think what attracted me to this particular line in the first place is the fact that though each and every piece looks great on its own, Monica Vinader jewelry looks just as impressive layered, but also, and I hate to sound like a broken record, I've worn it with jeans and evening gowns alike, and it never fails to make a statement.
For today's look, I chose to pair a few of my rose gold favorites with a soft, feminine-looking evening gown I wore to a friend's engagement party recently. Normally, when it comes to jewelry, layering is what I opt for, and though I am not opposed to mixing metals, on this particular occasion I chose to stick with a single color, but combined pieces in various shapes and sizes, ranging from dainty little bracelets to bold, statement cuffs. Yet, and this goes back to what I have mentioned earlier, what makes Monica Vinader jewelry so special to me is the fact that I've worn this exact stack with much more casual looks and yet it never looks out of place and always manages to enhance an outfit in the most magical of ways.
What about you guys, what's your idea of modern jewelry?
