With due respect to the diamond stud or simple necklace, it can be easy to get stuck in a jewelry rut. This spring, think outside the traditonal jewelry box and kick your spring wardrobe into higher gear. A few more bold, powerful pieces like a diamond chain for the pendant your mother gave, can easily will make you feel a bit more fearless when it comes to your everyday dressing. Getting closer towards warmer days, less layers allow you to wear more color; so why not use jewelry as your starting point? W March issue Jewelry Box was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor’s catalogued jewelry collection in which she accounted for the events each piece was worn to on their respective labeled boxes. Why shouldn’t we take Taylor’s lead, and also switch it up, not only for special events, but for every day wear? We should take pride in wearing our jewels, not keep them in our safes. Here, the most modern pieces to buy now.
