I love jewelry, and I am really partial to pearls. Their classy elegance and simplicity is probably what draws me. And the way they go with practically any outfit…actually, pearls immediately add elegance to any outfit and bring a wow factor to a casual get up.
I usually prefer single strand pearls (I’m simple like that). But as soon as I laid my eyes on this set of multi-strand pearls, I was totally in love.
Created by Ivy Designs, they are long layered pearls with flower patterned silver brooches. This piece is completely versatile and can be worn with a variety of outfits. Easily transmuted from casual to formal…from day to night from western garb to traditional African styles, they are a piece that should be in every woman’s jewelry box. I know I wish they were in mine.
I can just imagine the look: skinny jeans and a fitted tee, with a nice ankara jacket. Ballet flats, a designer handbag and my Ivy Designs pearl necklace. (Yep, I’m appropriating it already).
The interesting thing about this piece is that it is handmade by a Nigerian mumpreneur. Abimbola Adeniji Onarinde is a mum who channeled her creativity and her penchant for excellence into designing finely crafted handmade statement jewelry pieces.
Although a certain someone is crushing over this piece of layered pearls with the silver brooches, every single one of her designs will leave you with a strong desire to possess. Going through her Instagram page, you will find so many really lovely statement jewelry pieces. I loved every one of them, but my heart is set on the multi-strand pearl necklace.
My birthday is not till November, but if you are thinking of getting me an early birthday present, *hint, hint* then you know exactly where to go.
