A post on silver jewelry, because I never do that
I always post gold, because it’s what looks good on my skin, but I like silver jewelry too, and know a number of you prefer it. So I thought I’d give it a go. And while I’m at it: some of you have asked how I feel about mixing metals, so I will take this moment to state that I am all for it, even though I can never quite pull it off myself. I think these earrings are really sculptural and chic.
When a snake is eating its tail it’s called an ouroboros, and I love them: I have an ouroboros tattoo, and a couple of rings too, and would gladly add this to the collection.
These turquoise earrings are just a tiny bit hippie chick, in a good way.
The skulls on this cuff let you covertly add a little punk rock touch to your bracelet stack.
I do love a big old hoop.
I also very much like a big, chunky ring to offset my fat little fingers, and this malachite number is just gorgeous.
This necklace fits like a choker and is—I think—pretty sexy.
Another good ring—statement-y without being too much.
I like the idea of diamonds with silver: it’s unexpected and fresh.
A good ring to add to any stack.
I really like this spiky earring—it’s tough, but also quite beautiful.
A pair of dangly earrings that would be endlessly versatile.
These cuffs come in a set of two, and I find their simplicity appealing.
I have always loved this peacock earring from Ten Thousand Things—just a really lovely shape, and they’re big enough to stand out without being overwhelming.
The funky setting renders these pearl earrings almost edgy.
This rose thorn necklace is so pretty and delicate, but also kind of tough chick.
And finally: this is a pearl pendant, and I love the organic shape.
Here is a post I did a while back on good necklaces for layering.
