charlote gainsbourg wears this tiny gold necklace in a lot of photos, and i love the elegance and simplicity - it's the perfect necklace for summer. light, barely-there on a delicate chain, and adds just enough glimmer to an airy summer uniform. there's also a lovely interview where Charlotte talks about some of her favorite things, including the necklace.
jewelry is special because of its so-called 'sentimental value': the symbolic meaning given to it by you or others. the best kind of jewelry has the weight of histories and memories etched in its patina. there's a mysterious, romantic air floating about in an estate jewelry shop...all the stories contained within the lockets and rings.
i always wear earrings before leaving the house, and like to wear chunky costume jewelry (i have this one j.crew necklace that i call my 'party necklace') and funky estate rings for evening. however, the minimalist in me also loves very simple, understated pieces. i like to keep things consistent for day - i love the idea of wearing a special piece of jewelry all the time - so much so that it becomes a part of you in a way.
do you wear jewelry? if so, what do you wear?
