What are the most versatile pieces of jewelry in your stash?  THE ESSENTIALS are the pieces that you make sure you pack when going on a trip, the ones that will add a touch of glamour whether you are spending a carefree weekend day around town, exerting yourself on a strenuous hike in the mountains, spend some fun time at the beach, or lazily lounge on the couch reading a good book and drinking a glass of wine.  For me, THE ESSENTIALS are placed firmly at the intersection of comfort and fashion.
