This season I’ve been having lots of fun with statement earrings and bold chokers for special occasions, but at the end of the day—or, the beginning of the workday in this case—I end up reaching for those classic pieces that go with everything and make every ensemble understatedly chic.  I recently discovered a jewelry brand that every working girl under the sun NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT.  By some unfathomable twist of fate, the jewelry masterminds at AUrate manage to bring the best of quality fine jewelry, without the painful price tag.  I hope you’ve got a minute, because you need to hear me out on this one.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m ALL about snagging a piece of trendy costume jewelry, but when it comes to the jewelry I wear every. single. day, the green earlobes, chipped gold plating and constant tarnishing just gets old.  Cue AUrate, the jewelry line of my dreams that is reshaping the fine jewelry industry by offering designs that are fair priced, ethically sourced, and locally crafted (i.e. all the good things and all the good feels).


Each and every piece is crafted with real gold, diamonds and pearls, and just in case you have any doubts, they offer a LIFETIME warranty, no questions asked. They’re able to sell top-quality jewelry at a jaw-droppingly low price point because they sell directly to the consumer, avoiding middlemen (and their markups).  AND, if all of that isn’t enough (did I mention EVERYTHING is ethically sourced?) they also donate a book to a child in need for every purchase.  Sooooo, I think I just gave you enough reasons to jewelry shop for yourself today…

Just about every single day since I opened the box, I’ve worn this stunning AUrate diamond bezel necklace layered with the slightly longer bar drop necklace.  The contrasting lengths make for the perfect, timeless, everyday combination.  To bookend the necklaces, I’m wearing these stunning geometric bar earrings and last but not least, this amazing asymmetrical tribar cuff pulls it all together.

These classic, delicate gold pieces make for the perfect everyday staple jewelry that will take you from the office to drinks to a holiday soiree in a cinch. Especially when it comes to jewelry in the office, less is always more, and these dainty pieces add that subtle yet powerful finishing touch.   Run don’t walk, y’all.

    I’m not a fan of very large, bold jewelry so these are a good style for me.

    I LOVE that you have recently highlighted more companies and campaigns like this and Olivela that have a social impact mission. I am trying to do this with more of my purchases. Thank you for such a gorgeous blog (I’ve been following for 3 years) and for being a place I can go to find quality pieces I love!
