Ironically, I worked for a company that frowned upon any display of individualism via outward accessories. Wearing anything other than a wedding ring was deemed out of the ordinary. This only made me long for the weekend when I was granted the freedom to adorn myself as I pleased.
Gorgeous jewelry is such a mood changer, taking an every day look to glam level. When the accessories are right, your outfit can be simple and understated. There's no need to stack loads of pieces, just a few unique items will do. If you don't have at least a couple of pieces in your collection that consistently draw compliments and questions, I encourage you not to stop looking until you find the them.
