I often refer to handbags and shoes as investment pieces in my wardrobe, but there’s another investment vehicle you shouldn’t overlook – and that’s fine jewelry. They’re not only enduring in style but hold their value years down the road. Whether you wear them on their own or layer them with equally luxe pieces, fine jewelry can be dressed up or down for any occasion. When it comes to fine jewelry, I gravitate towards a mix of thicker, bold pieces as well as daintier designs. There’s just something so chic and elegant about pairing the two styles together.
One of the brands that merge the best of both worlds is Lagos. Everything from Lagos is so luxurious and carefully designed, taking countless hours to assemble. The final result is an iconic, long-lasting piece that easily becomes a family heirloom. I recently grabbed several new pieces from Nordstrom and wanted to share my essentials from the brand that I believe every woman should own.
Luxe Watch Bands
A watch is the ultimate everyday accessory – and easily makes any outfit feel complete. For everyday wear, the Apple Watch is the way to go, especially if your career is based online like mine. Since the original watch band isn’t that flattering, I swapped mine out for one made by Lagos. This stunning band is made from stainless steel and includes Lagos’s signature caviar beading. It makes the watch way more wearable with dressier looks when you’re going out – and you can hardly tell you’re wearing a tech piece at first glance.
I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to necklaces – and a simple pendant design will always be my first choice. This one looks great against other chain designs and adds visual interest to any outfit.
I’m a huge fan of bracelets because they always present the opportunity to mix and match various options for a personalized look. Lagos has no shortage of high-quality bracelets to pick from at Nordstrom. I purchase so many of my investment pieces here because of their straightforward return and shipping policies. Those two factors are always a priority for me when making expensive purchases – and Nordstrom easily tops my list of luxury retailers for that.
I firmly believe that every girl only needs two key earring styles – a pair of classic studs and a statement piece. Both make the perfect finishing touch for an evening look – but can easily spruce up a casual outfit for the day. I’ve linked my two favorites from Lagos below.
I like to keep my rings simple with dainty layers of diamonds or a minimal band. This one below does exactly that. I especially love that it complements my wedding band rather than take away from it – and it adds a luxurious amount of texture.
