I’m not someone who regularly changes up her jewelry. What I strive for are staple pieces that can seamlessly be incorporated into every outfit I wear, for any occasion. So naturally, I gravitate towards minimalist gold hardware because I find myself more attracted to the way it looks on my skin tone & with my hair color.
I’ve had my moments of wearing lower-quality pieces because I appreciated the price point. But here’s the problem going that cheaper direction: with constant wear comes the visible tear. The metal begins to tarnish & looks dirty in appearance, and sometimes you’re left with an unsightly skin reaction to the cheap metal.
At this point in my young adult life, I should be wearing finer jewelry. It looks better & lasts longer, which is essential for those, like myself, who rarely take them off. But there’s a stereotypical assumption is that fine jewelry has to come at a cost, otherwise why would we subject ourselves to purchases not up to that caliber?
AUrate New York believes that you shouldn’t have to choose between high quality and fair pricing when it comes to your jewelry. When I browsed the site, I was beyond thrilled to see pieces that were exactly my style – timeless, classic, and personal. I feel like AUrate’s selection of jewelry is what I was always looking for & wanted to wear, but could never find until now.
Needless to say I haven’t taken off my custom-made Letter Necklace, which also makes for the perfect layering piece. The thin chain and delicate detail of the letters is so beautifully done, I couldn’t help but fall in love with it!
Same goes for my two pairs of earrings. The X Earring is such a cool & different look while remaining minimalist and delicate when worn. These Mini Gold Bar Earrings are great for additional piercings, small enough to not crowd the lobe and versatile in this favored format.
There’s so much to discover within AUrate’s impressive fine jewelry catalog. I’ve already bookmarked a few more pieces I’m keeping my eye on as potential gift ideas. Be sure to check out each of the full collections below!
