Jewelry is a great place for expression in an otherwise conservative outfit. There are still some rules, however: Your earrings should not be too dangly. Nothing should be too shiny (unless it’s diamonds, really). Nothing should make noise when you walk (e.g., piled-on bangles). Corporette navigates the waters for you and explores a different designer each week.
Christie Martin Jewelry is not new: she won the Gen Art “Fresh Face in Fashion” award in 2004, has been featured in most major magazines, and is sold at major institutions like the Big Drop boutiques in New York and Ron Herman in L.A. Still, when we were browsing through Couture Candy the other day we couldn’t help but being drawn to her stuff for office fun — it’s got a sense of humor but is still appropriate and beautiful.
Maybe we’re crazy, but we also love this initial necklace in Old English lettering — it speaks to our love of all things monogrammed. There’s an extra-large gold one that may not be appropriate for the office but is super cool, also: Christie Martin Jewelry Old English Necklace Large in Gold.
We also like this hammered wire necklace — we think it would look great peeking out from beneath a button-down shirt.
