A Signature Piece
Call me odd, but I’ve never liked the word “jewelry”, perhaps because even plastic bangals at the dime store are in the jewelry department. And so, at the risk of sounding pretentious, instead of using the word “jewelry”, I will use the term “a signature piece” or specifically a ring, a necklace, earrings, and so on.
As a perfect example of a signature item, most likely you recall Carrie Bradshaw’s nameplate necklace that reached iconic proportions, as she was almost never seen without it.
This is the type of signature piece that works.
Let’s take a look at one specific piece, the sterling silver-plated bracelet (or gold-plated, if you prefer). I love the elegant, yet strongly original statement that such a bracelet gives to its owner.
Here are three silver-plated bracelets that I adore, including a final photo of a sterling silver-plated bracelet that I own and wear almost daily.
