DYO (Design Your Own) Jewelry
Her love of all things glittery and gold must have passed down to me, because I also adore jewelry. Vintage, modern, DIY, costume, fine, I just love it all. One thing that I must note, though, is that my classic investment pieces are the ones I keep coming back to. These are the pieces that I will pass down to my children, and are the pieces with which my memories are entwined.
I recently had the opportunity to review Anjolee.com, the only customizable website that allows buyers to custom-build jewelry designs based upon style and budget. Have you ever gone into a jeweler and thought- that piece would be gorgeous in yellow gold? Or, good lord I don't need a 3 carat ring, shrink that down so I can afford it! I usually get freaked out at the jeweler, especially since they rarely have the actual price listed on the pieces under glass. When I shopped Anjolee, I was able to adjust the metals and carat quality/size and see how it affects the overall cost, all in the comfort of my own home.
I selected a pair of stud earrings that I can see Charlotte, my daughter, wearing decades from now- Amethyst stone surrounded by diamonds. They are classic with a colorful twist, but still clean in design.
Not interested in stud earrings? They have a massive assortment of other fine bling:
Wedding and Anniversary Bands
Dangle and Hoop Earrings
Tennis, Bangle and Men's Bracelets
Necklaces and Pendants
The diamond bangle bracelets are gorgeous- they even offer flexible bracelets for those of us whose wrists usually can't handle traditional bangles.
In need of some solid education? They offer a massive and comprehensive section that isn't simply an advertisement for their products- it is unbiased info.
What types of investment pieces do you prefer? Do you look forward to handing your favorite pieces down?
