Nice jewellery is another important thing to have as an adult. You at least need one good necklace, bracelet and some nice rings--and don't give me that "I'm not a jewellery person." I don't have a lot of expensive pieces, but I always have something to wear that looks classy for a night out, day at work or even a job interview. Simple, classy statement pieces don't have to be expensive. There are many jewellers and retailers that make affordable jewellery for everyday wear.
Magnolia Silver Jewellery makes simple and "dainty" jewellery--I love their use of the word "dainty" in their ring collection--that is available at many Canadian retailers. When I was looking for something to pinpoint exactly what I meant by "classic jewellery," they came to mind. Their pieces use high quality sterling silver, Swarovski crystals and goldfill--a mix of 9 and 14 karat gold. It's almost the holiday season, so even if you don't want to buy anything for yourself, add a few little things to your wish list. We all know the nice feeling you get when you're gifted some jewellery.
Sterling silver teardrop pendant with a clear cubic Zirconia, $68
Jewellery doesn't have to be crazy expensive. Magnolia Jewellery has options for under $50, $100 and $200. Most of the ones I really liked were under $100. I think this one would be a great professional piece to wear with a blouse or blazer.
Sterling silver pendant with purple cubic Zirconia, $50
I love coloured stones. I have a few pieces of my own jewellery that have amethyst and I am also a sucker for birthstones. This beautiful purple pendant is romantic, soft and stunning.
Sterling silver dainty ring with turquoise, $65
Vintage rings always make me swoon. I am always looking at them on Etsy, but they can be so expensive. Something like this vintage style ring would make a great classic statement.
Gold filled and 14K gold plated beaded necklace, $119
This necklace has a Grecian Goddess feel to it. It's also one of their holiday picks and would go well with a sparkly dress or holiday party outfit.
14K gold plated dainty bracelet, $65
A have a plain gold bracelet that I wear all the time to add some flair to my outfits. It blends in with my look from day to night and whatever I'm doing. This is a classic bit of jewellery for a great price.
