For the past few years a group of us gals go to brunch somewhere new and fabulous in Portland, and exchange undies. It’s a good excuse to get dressed up, eat delicious food and get some new skivvies out of the deal. I also used it as an opportunity to wear these beautiful (borrowed) Tiffany & Co. necklaces. Both members of the Ziegfeld Collection, and total stunners, made me feel ultra-feminine and a little ritzy. Okay, a lot ritzy.

The collection represents the opulence and glamour of the 1920s, and was created for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby in collaboration with Catherine Martin, The Great Gatsby’s costume designer. The collection celebrates Tiffany’s legacy during the Jazz Age and features items like tassel necklaces, black onyx and pearls.

I’m wearing the tassel necklace in sterling silver and rose gold, and at first glance, it looks like a tassel of diamonds. Wrapped like a scarf, this necklace can make even the simplest of outfits ravishing (I know I don’t use words like that, but there is no other way to describe it). I paired the arrow pendant in rose gold and diamonds to layer with this pretty, and it was the perfect, unassuming combination. I was skeptical about rose gold before I tried the arrow pendant necklace, but I’m happy to say I’m a total convert. The color is flawless with any skin tone.

You know, jewelry is a funny thing. What you might consider ‘not your style’, might also be the piece that totally blows your mind.
