When you decide to buy jewelry, it’s an investment; and it’s a good one, when you opt for quality, classic designs. Unlike clothing, your sparkling accessories will always fit, will never need to be laundered, and can be worn as often as you like. Truly special gems can be passed down for generations, and precious heirlooms never go out of fashion. And while it may be pricey up front, having a few valuable pieces of jewelry — as opposed to bunches of cheaper baubles that will need to be replaced — is more cost effective in the long run.
The trick is to choose versatile pieces that are sleek and simple, but no less stunning. Below, check out 7 timeless jewelry pieces that won’t go out of style, no matter how many years go by.
