This is me. I got these silver bracelets in India a few years ago and now I wear them every day, partially because they’re kind of a pain to take off!
Amy Odell: “I wear one or both of these Made Her Think bracelets almost every day. They were a birthday gift from the boyfriend who bothered to figure out my taste in jewelry before lazily buying me something I would probably just return.”
Anna: “My grandfather gave my mom this ring, and after he died she gave it to me. I used to wear one he gave my grandmother, in memory of both my grandparents, but I developed an allergy to it and my finger turned bright red. Luckily this one seems to be hypoallergenic.”
Amy Sly: “As a daily bike commuter, mine is my back bike light which is always clipped to whatever backpack or purse I’m wearing.”
Lauren Lipsay: “The ring on my middle finger was my great-grandmother’s; she always had a crazy, quirky sense of style and left me all of her most unique jewelry when she passed away a few years ago.
Cates: “I never take these 4 rings off. The gold one is my family crest ring, which my father gave me for my 18th birthday. I haven’t taken it off for more than 2 hours in the last 12 years. The wide silver chainmail-looking ring was a Christmas gift from my mother the year after she recovered from cancer. The brass/copper/silver banded ring above it is identical to a ring I gave to my sister. I bought the small flower ring beside it at an antique shop on Portobello Road in London on my 27th birthday, and the forget-me-nots match the ones on my family crest. What can I say? I like my jewelry to be semi-permanent!”
Alix: ” I wear this hand-carved buffalo/hobo nickel necklace my friend Tony made every day. It’s a little creepy looking but I like to think of it as a good luck charm. Here’s a link to his Etsy shop!”
Ashley: “Ok these are Aldo and I’m embarrassed about it but they make me think of the beach and are my commuter shoes. I expect they’ll be ruined by July when I actually get to the beach.”
Whitney: “The only thing I wear every day is this simple heart-shaped ring from CatBird in Williamsburg. It was the first present from my boyfriend when we first started dating and I love it (I also picked it out in advance and casually sent him the link as a hint, haha).”
Lauren Yapalater: “This is my hamsa necklace, it never leaves my body (except for this photo). I wear it every single DAYYYYYY!!!!”
