This layered necklace is pretty, but the two uppermost chain layers are so lightweight that they don’t stay in their lane. I had to fuss with them quite a bit and take several photos to get a decent close up because every time I moved, the top two layers did too, making the entire thing look askew and/or tangled. The earrings are beautiful, though I found that because the two hoops are side to side, they create a wider “base” against my ear that the back pushes up against, making the hoops stationary and, quite often, stick out at a weird angle from my ears. I’ll continue to mess around with them to see if I can correct that issue because, if I can, they’d likely be worn a ton!
I heart this necklace!! Hyper shiny pieces are difficult to photograph because they pick up everything around them and reflect those images back, so I apologize that the photo doesn’t properly do it justice…I tried. That said, know that it’s positively stunning in person! It certainly makes a statement, but not by taking up all your neck/chest real estate. Certainly a piece that can be worn with casual or dressy ensembles. The earrings are pretty cool too. They remind me of twisted ribbon. Again, a bit difficult to photograph, but interesting to look at!
Closing out the work week in Avon’s Freshwater Pearl Cluster Necklace!
This necklace was actually released a while ago, but the box fell down from my “demo jewelry area” and I didn’t realize it until I found the box where it didn’t belong the night before I wore it. Found jewelry–SCORE! Pearls are some of my go-to classic faves, but this one has a trendy vibe with how it clustered the goldtone bits and various sized beads and pearls. My only gripe is that the beads are a see-through bluish tint, which I feel takes away from the beauty of the pearls because your eye goes to the “flaws” rather than to what’s absolutely perfect. Had the beads matches the shade of the pearls, or been completely clear or even goldtone, I think this necklace would be above reproach. Regardless, it’s still gorgeous and darned near perfect. You can shorten the length by wrapping the chain around your neck again creating a shorter layered look, or let is hang long and low like I did–flexibility in a jewelry piece is always a big plus for me!
Those are all of the past week’s selfies! What was your favorite and how would you have worn it?!
