Aggressively Accessorized

A dear friend of mine once remarked that I had a rather "aggressive" taste in jewelry. It's a pretty safe bet that if a piece is sharp, studded, or just plain different, I'm going to love it. Its not that I have a fascination with the macabre, I just really like jewelry that it is a bit different that the expected dainty charm. I don't load on the jewels, so the effect isn't overbearing, but I do like to add some pizazz to an otherwise simple outfit. Here are my most recent picks, at every price point.

The Fetty of Brooklyn has three lines, all at various price points. I ordered the Shot to the Heart necklace, from the Urban line (the least expensive of the line's offerings) last summer, and wore it daily for months. I just love the little twist on the standard heart pendant, and at $10, the price really can't be beat.

I recently discovered nOir Jewelry, and I'm currently coveting this Amelia Wrap Sword ring, which is $70. The ring comes in both Gold and Rhodium plating, and I think I prefer the Rhodium. Although this may hamper one's typing abilities, it would be a perfect addition for a night out. I love the wrap around style, and this ring certainly packs a big punch in a small package.

Tom Binns, in my humble opinion, is the master of the aggressive accessory. This 24-karat gold plated Studded Cuff bracelet is a major splurge at $450, so it will not be mine any time soon, but, if it was, I would pair it with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to my fanciest cocktail dress and heels.

Do you find yourself drawn to aggressive accessories? Or am I alone on this one?


  1. I love your taste in eccentric jewelry. I admire anybody that has the courage to done anything that is really edgy or trendy. Maybe I'm a little bit boring, but I'd like to think of myself as more of a classic type of girl when it comes to my accessories. I tend to just always play it safe. Sometimes I wish I was a little bit more brave like you.

  2. Thanks Eva! There's nothing wrong with classic!

  3. From what I can see (being the fashionably challenged guy I am) you have a really good sense of style. The Shot to the Heart necklace is pretty sick!

  4. I took a class on noir literature over the summer, and I never would have thought there is such a thing as noir jewelry. I think that the sword ring is pretty slick.

  5. I am not much in to jewelry and such but that sword ring is awesome!
