Okay, I have a new obsession. I've recently been into stacking bracelets. I like the look of "junking" up the arm. I also prefer fine jewelry (gold/diamonds) vs just any type of metal but, with that said, it takes time and money to start and keep collecting pieces. I would suggest to anyone that's looking to start a collection, to first sit down and figure out what you like and dislike. Do you like gold tones vs white tones? Are you a fine jewelry collector or costume jewelry hound? There are some beautiful costume pieces that can be extremely expensive. Think vintage Chanel or Hermes. Regardless of what you decide, try to stay as classic as possible. This obsession can get ridiculous and you want to be able to wear what you have for years to come.
Sydney Evan, Roseark and Jennifer Meyer. They are all based out of Los Angeles and have a nice selection of high and low end pieces. You can find their creations at Barneys and Roseark itself. Or you can try some online retailers. Either way good luck on your journey, hope you find what you're looking for. xoxo
