I wrote a post earlier this year about wearing jewelry with casual everyday outfits. Why save it for special occasions? Fine jewelry took a backseat for the last several years and didn’t feel quite right with my running around attire. But, I love wearing a special piece here and there, because most of my jewelry evokes memories of the occasion it was given to me, namely by my husband. So, I’m inspired by this editorial in the WSJ Magazine featuring a beautiful mix of fine jewelry from understated to amazing statement pieces. Jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and Bulgari are piled on and paired with denim, sneakers and casual classics. Although I wouldn’t wear this many pieces all at once, that’s just not my style, I do like the idea of dusting off something I’ve saved for special occasions and enjoying its beauty and memory a little more often.
