The Absence of Jewelry

Diamonds have been praised for their girl’s best friend status. But my best friends are beings (some human and some furry) who could never be replaced especially with objects of material meaning. There are many items which rank higher than hard carbon on my list of favorite things like stripes, vibrant colors and brown paper packages tied up with string. It has been verbalized by several observers that I am not what one would call a "jewelry person".  While I would not go as far as to swap my engagement ring for a state of the art closet like Carrie Bradshaw, I would eagerly accept a walk-in on a less-life-defining occasion.

Minimal does not even begin to describe my meager jewelry collection. My philosophy on necklaces (with the exception of ones fashioned from genuine pearls) is the bigger the better. I don't acquire neck decoration often. On the rare occasion when I add a necklace to my collection it is important that it either makes a statement solo or can be layered with others to give the appearance of a larger piece. When I accessorize beyond the essential Timex watch my neck is what I choose to adorn. On the contrary, simple bracelets usually find themselves in my favor because they can be worn superbly with Mr. Timex and are less likely to catch on something unexpected.
