When I purchase jewelry, I like to choose classic, timeless pieces that will go with an assortment of outfits in my closet. This helps me avoid impulse purchases and choose higher quality pieces that could even become heirlooms.
It's important to consider the environmental and social impact jewelry pieces may have. Many of the metals, gems and diamonds are mined and contribute to toxic waste, violence, deforestation and biodiversity loss.
