Wishlist Wednesday

Let's see... trendy nail polish -check, Hunter wellies -check, Sonicare toothbrushes- check (and now own!), new snazzy West Elm curtains-check...     

What else can I try fit in Santa's sleigh...


I've mentioned before I like my "wishlist" items to be things I do not or would not typically purchase for myself.  When necessary or desired, I'll splurge on a great pair of shoes, and even once and a while I'll get a nice bag. The one thing I never buy is jewelry. Real jewelry.  If it's $50 and under I'll get it, but that's typically something cheap, fake, and serves it's trendy-couple-of-wears purpose. 

My current picks for something more 'timeless'...

David Yurman Two Station Bracelet 
(no longer available online - booo, whore)

(Pretty sure my mom owns this... in due time)



Yeah, I got a thing for David Yurman.  I really like two toned DY items because when my parents split up my mom reset her engagement diamond in a custom DY inspired ring.   Then she decided to give the ring to me on my 21st birthday (yay!).  It's sentimental and I love the look of it.  When I got engaged, she passed down a DY Linked Bracelet that she bought herself in the 90's.  It's since been discontinued but it's also two tone with 5 diamonds that mimic the pattern on my 'etoile' wedding band.  I really love both pieces and wear them all the time.  I would love to compliment them with another... hence my affinity for gold, silver, and the signature DY "roping".

You can vaguely see my current bracelet in these pics...


(disregard the hair tie)
And here is the reset Yurman inspired ring....


Do you wear jewelry with a signature look or prefer one designer's styles?

  3. I used to have a lot of DY too. I love that it goes with everything, from jeans to cocktail to formal. I sold most of mine though--I like chunkier pieces. Just an FYI from an experienced DY wearer---the bracelets that don't clasp fly off easily. I lost two in Vegas :(
