The yellow moonstone necklace I bought off etsy years ago after hoping to thrift a yellow necklace. I don't wear it that often but do really enjoy it. The costume rhinestone necklace was a gift I have yet to wear it but it is so spectacular I need to keep hoarding it. I love my brass charm necklace but the charms do flip over when I wear it so I need to pick my days with it since it is a fussy piece. The last of my coro necklaces is this turquoise paisley shaped necklace, I love the color and it sits so well on the neck. The red glass bead necklace was my best thrifted piece at 99 cents I have owned it for 8 years and wear it often. Lastly almost every vintage wearing girl has a classic clear glass bead necklace.
I would love to be able to thrift another brass charm necklace and maybe another glass bead necklace in a new-to me color.
I honestly only wear 2 of these pair regularly and probably could edit this even more but I am holding on to a few just in case. I like to buy my earring cheap the most expensive pair was $4.99 while the other were $2 or less.
What I wear:
The pave rhinestone leafs are my all time favorite find, the embroidered roses get a lot of wear to work. I love the amber rhinestone set as well as the yellow moonstones.
What I could donate...
I have only worn the large brown stone earrings once. The rhinestone triangles... never but I like the modern look of them. The art deco rhinestone pair I thought I would wear I tonne they are my most subtle pair but they seem just meh to me when I try them on but I feel I need a simpler option on hand.
I sold off most of my brooches last year and really only kept the creme de le creme according to me. I have grown fond of scatter pins or brooches that match hence why most of my collection is in pairs now.... I do like a good novelty brooch but also want them to be well made these two enameled pieces are top notch.
Overall with jewelry I tend to keep my pieces cheap and cheerful and rarely splurge on an item. Only 3 items I paid full retail for which is not too bad and out of all the pieces I have donated now and in the past none of them I paid full price for so I feel I have made good choices.
Do other keep a well edited jewelry collection or do you feel it is better to have more options?
