The best kind of jewelry is the one you can forget about — an heirloom ruby passed on to every generation’s ring finger, or a delicate pendant that comfortably lives on one’s clavicles. These are the pieces that become most special, because they become such a natural part of us. And so in seeking out the kind of jewelry that can withstand a rigorous spin class, a swim in the pool, and dinner for two, their livability is an underrated but important quality.
Consider, then, a delicate cuff that would suit faded jeans just as well is it would an athletic swimsuit. Stack bracelets up for a day that demands more drama, or keep it simple with a solid four-band ring on the other hand. With such versatility, the combinations are endless. —Margarita Buenaventura
