    no need for green fingers

    by Yasmeen Gharnit · April 22, 2015

    Plated copper jewelry might be easy on the wallet, but there is only so much of a woman's life that can be spent hiding green-stained fingers. At some point, perhaps in a fit of frustration, you'll realize it's time to forfeit a good portion of your paycheck in order to invest in the jewelry you actually want to wear.

    Don't know what's worth dropping cash on? Ahead, eight timeless items that every woman should invest in. Not only will they outlast nearly every possible trend, but they're also perfect to slip on in a rush. 

    STACKING RINGS

    Made to be personalized, you can coordinate a stack of rings depending on your mood or your outfit. Plus, you can add to them on special occasions.

    A GOLD NECKLACE WITH YOUR INITIAL

    Everyone should have one necklace that you never have to take off—not to shower and definitely not to replace with other necklaces. This individualized piece pairs well with others.

    Jennifer Meyer, 
    initial pendant necklace, $1,125, available at Barney's

    A PAIR OF GOLD EARRINGS

    Every woman should have a simple gold stud in their jewelry arsenal. But since they are admittedly easy to lose, you definitely shouldn't spend over $200 on them.

    Catbird,
    classic heart studs in yellow gold, $96, available at Catbird

    A STATEMENT CUFF

    Throw on a graphic lucite cuff with a cocktail dress, ballroom gown, or a simple white button-down and slacks to elevate an evening look.

    Alexis Bittar, desert jasmine wide hinged bracelet, $295, available at Alexis Bittar

    A CHOKER

    Cleopatra meets the '90s meets just about any other time/place/culture, really.

    Eddie Borgo, cuboid collar, $225, available at Eddie Borgo

    AN EMBELLISHED BIB NECKLACE

    Statement necklaces are a bit overdone at this point, but we'll always love how we can throw on a bright textured piece with a white tee and jeans.

    Joomi Lim, rebel romance crystal necklace, $754, available at Joomi Lim

    A DELICATE, GO-ANYWHERE BRACELET

    Use a barely there bracelet to add a bit of sparkle to your wrist.

    Sydney Evan, small gold & evil eye bracelet in white gold, $730, available at Sydney Evan

    A COCKTAIL RING

    This subtle design is large enough to attract some serious attention, but understated enough to fit in with any laid-back outfit.
