Tuesday Topics: Accessories


If you've seen me on an ordinary day for about the last decade and a half, you've most likely seen my Tiffany Elsa Peretti starfish necklace. On returning from a business trip to New York in the early 90s, Mom & Dad gifted me with my favorite timeless accessory, and my first Tiffany Blue box!

What is your favorite timeless accessory?

My favorite timeless accessory is my two-tone Coach Lexington watch. My parents gave it to me for my 18th birthday. At the time, my grandfather told my mom that she was crazy for spending $500 on a watch for an 18 year old, but considering I've worn it every day of my life for nearly 8 years, I think the price tag has been justified.

I have two: my Coach tank watch (college grad gift from my mom) and my silver square monogram ring (randomly purchased but I wear it everyday).

I have a tiffany tag bracelet that I bought for myself at age 16. I've added several other charms, and just adore it.

I wear huge pearl studs everyday. I feel weird without them in my ears!

I have quite a few. My engagement ring & wedding band - timeless because my engagement ring is made from my grandmother's diamond.

I have a Gucci watch that my mom gave me for my 21st birthday. It is a sport style watch, but is small & elegant & fits me perfectly.

The other things I rotate through are diamond bezel set studs and diamond hoops. Both from my mom. :)

My new favorite accessory is my engagement ring... for obvious reasons!

But since that's only a month or so old, I think my OTHER favorite would have to be the eternity circle necklace that my parents gave me. It's simple, classic, and goes well with jeans and a t-shirt or a cocktail dress.

One accessory that I almost always have on and will have forever is the first ring Husband ever gave me. A simple diamond anniversary band. It was our 1 year dating anniversary. We were sophomores in high school. He gave it to me on a picnic in my favorite park. For that reason alone I love it.

Adorable...perfect for summer!

My pearl earrings are my favorite, and of course...my new engagement ring :)

Kim said...

My favorite accessory is the diamond studs my parents gave me for college graduation. I rarely take them off. They go with everything!

Also, now I guess also my engagement ring! I also pretty much wear that all the time, except in the shower.

I have the same starfish from Tiffany's and love it!

I have a family heirloom "right-hand" diamond ring from the 1920s. I wear it every day. It makes me feel lucky and loved!

My pearl and diamond earrings that my mom gave to me - pearls when I started competing in horseback riding competitions and the diamonds when I turned 21.

I had a gorgeous Elsa/Tiffany's "P" necklace that I sadly misplaced a few years back. I keep meaning to look for a new one to replace it...

Princess Freckles said...

I have so many! But i think my small diamond studs have to be my favorite, because I got them for Christmas when I was 11 and I wear them everyday!

Lisa said...

Mine is my silver chain with a diamond encircled in silver... wear it just about every day.

Elise said...

I have that same necklace but in the smaller size! My other favorite timeless pieces are a diamond palm tree necklace my parents gave me for my high school graduation, a simple silver and gold David Yurman ring from my boyfriend, and diamond studs from my grandmother for my sweet 16. I like that each piece came from someone different I love.

I would have to say that it's the Movado watch my mom got for me when I was 19. I've had it 11 years and wear it everyday. It is classic and timeless.

Actually, one of our more discreet faves is our Peretti cross from the same establishment!

Have a wonderful weekend!

My favorite timeless accessories are my diamond studs and my Kate Spade messenger bag. (I have 3 and I use them just about every day)

The New Black said...

I'm a simple and classic kinda gal that loves her silver hoop earrings. Diamond studs are my other go to. Every girl has got to have her Tiffany's though! :)

I'd say my Tiffany heart...it's on a silver chain and I love it! I wear it most days, unless I am wearing my pearls!
