Happy New Year everyone! I’m totally going to say the same thing everyone is saying…I can’t believe it’s already 2017! Where did 2016 go? I am so looking forward to 2017! I feel much more ready for the new year than I did last year.
If you’ve followed Fiercely Charming for a minute or awhile, you may have noticed that I always wear my Michele watch and my David Yurman ring. I mean, always, without fail. I am a firm believer of classic jewelry that I can wear every day, with any outfit. Both of these items are super special to me as well. Let me tell you the backstory on each.
The Michele. When I graduated from college, I started a full-time job in Marketing. I told myself that when/if I get my first bonus, I want to buy myself a Michele watch. I have eyed this Michele watch since I was 18 years old. But let’s be real, when you ask your parents for a $2,000+ dollar watch, they laugh in your face. So I knew that I needed to work hard to make this purchase. After a year of working hard, my best friend and I went to the Nordstrom and I bought it. I did it! I bought it! I was ecstatic. I couldn’t believe I was able to do this. Such a privilege. Now, fast forward to today – 6 years later – I have worn my Michele every single day. I’ve worn it in weddings, to fancy dinners, and every day at work. It’s one of those classic pieces that you can wear on any occasion to any event or day-to-day activity. If you’re looking for a timeless watch, I’d recommend this one for sure. It’s not inexpensive, but trust me, when you end up wearing it all the time, you’ll get your money’s worth and look at it as an investment.
The David Yurman Ring. About 4-5 years ago, I was introduced to David Yurman through a few friends who owned some of his beautiful jewelry. I loved the rope look that tied a ring or bracelet together. I originally wanted this one. But it was really big on my finger (which I like, but it was too much!) and I’d have to say the price was up there as well. On my birthday, my parents surprised me with the current ring I have and I fell in love. It’s the perfect size and one that goes with any outfit. Plus, I loved the onyx. It looks so bold and beautiful. Ever since that day, I wore that ring on the regular. It dresses up my right hand and I never buy rings.
The David Yurman Bracelet to Match. The third piece of jewelry that is classic and one that you can wear everyday is this David Yurman bracelet. This one is new! I received it as a gift on Christmas. My dad always likes to spoil me (my mom does too, but really my dad is the spoiler when it comes to jewelry!). He’s gotten me interested in it ever since I was a little girl. He knew I wanted this bracelet to match the ring and to stack with my watch. So on Christmas, I was definitely surprised when I opened it. Such a sweet gift. I have been wearing it everyday since Christmas and I must say, it looks so good! I’m loving it. I’d definitely consider a David Yurman bracelet as a classic piece of jewelry that you can wear with anything, every single day.
