After two weeks of exploring this season’s latest and greatest trends with the Fall Trend Memo series, I thought today would be the perfect day to raise a toast (clink, clink) to the timeless, classic pieces that can be worn season after season, year after year.  David Yurman, please stand up.

David Yurman has always been a very special brand to me.  I remember losing. my. mind. when I received my first cable bracelet as a birthday gift from my grandparents.  Definitely one of those moments you never forget. One of the most iconic jewelry brands of all time, there aren’t enough words (or enough feels) for me to convey just how deep my love for David Yurman goes.

Timeless, elegant jewelry is the essential finishing touch to a polished ensemble, and nothing dresses up a classic suit like some classic bling.  Always game for an arm party, I never say no to stackable, mix-and-match bracelets which have long been my go-to in finishing off a look.  I recently discovered David Yurman’s new Solari collection, and let’s just say that Christmas is going to have to come early this year.  When it comes to these stunners, waiting for Santa is real life #selfcontrol goals.

Cue the DROOLFEST that is this combination of Solari bracelets.  Today I’ve stacked the onyx Solari bracelet with the Tahitian grey pearl Solari bracelet, and I honestly can’t choose a favorite.  Staying true to classic David Yurman style, the band of the bracelet is a petite version of the classic cable, but the ring of pave diamonds that circle each pearl end add just the right touch of elegance and interest.  These bracelets are perfect to wear to the office styled with a tailored suit, or styled with weekend basics to add a touch of polish.

Today I’m also sporting the gorgeous pave diamond bracelet (which is truly breathtaking in person!) and this onyx and hematine beaded bracelet, adding the perfect amount of fun.  The deep onyx and hematine are the perfect complement to the head-to-toe statement red I’m wearing today, but would look just as beautiful with jeans.

Last but certainly not least, let’s talk about my pave studs which certainly make an elegant statement, but are understated enough to wear with everything. These beauties, with hand-set pave diamonds surrounded by the classic David Yurman cable, add just the right amount of sparkle.

Whether these David Yurman pieces are mixed-and-matched or worn solo, there’s no question I’ll be wearing them for years to come.

    I love to see you partnering with David Yurman. Fantastic pairing for your style. Though I do wonder if all that stacking would be too noisy for us corporate warriors!
