As it is with make-up, I am also a minimalist when it comes to jewelry. I’ll go classic for most pieces and funky for some. My one staple is to wear a pair of earrings (usually my mini bling from JoJo) every day. I also make sure to take them out every night.  Here is a small collection of some of my favorite jewelry stops for birthday gifts and that little addition to your collection.  Also, some tips for cleaning and keeping!
