I have found that every woman I have the privilege of interacting with is her own shining example of a truly powerful woman. Many women I talk to can't deny that are times when we not only want our jewelry to bolster us during our tribulations, but to reflect the magnitude of our triumphs. I think of these days as the Bold–the days when I adorn myself in layers of necklaces, put on my favorite earrings, and wear a statement ring for good measure. I’m arming myself to do battle with whatever the day may bring, making sure that my exterior appearance reflects my interior.
In an age where life seems to pass us by in flurries of meetings and highly dictated schedules, it is critical to embrace the days where one can move through the world with a quiet, understated grace. On such days, we adorn ourselves in minimalistic jewelry and enter the world with subtle, everyday elegance. Perhaps I’ll only wear a simple eternity band as I hike, or a pair of minimal stud earrings as I play with my girls. I think of these days as the Beautiful–the days where my shine is not diminished by a lack of jewelry, it’s simply recalibrated to fit the needs of my day.
