Oh holidays. Cheesy movie on Lifetime about girl learning the meaning of Christmas by helping secret millionaire (who of course has secret terminal cancer) be secret Santa to the needy + bottle of wine = There Will Be Tears. So I’m going to distract myself by looking at jewelry.
Namely these new David Yurman necklaces which I came across in the most recent edition of what I think was Marie Claire:
David Yurman Malachite Dog Tag Necklace – $675
Now this is ostensibly (fancy word of the day!) a dude necklace. But I’m going to confess what I hope is not a controversial general rule and say that I am anti-dude-jewelry of any kind. Except for wedding rings. And then I am anti-men who are anti-wedding rings.
Because when I think men who wear jewelry, I think of this guy:

And fellas, you do not want your girl thinking of this guy when she looks at you. Trust.But is it wrong that I think this necklace might be TOTALLY wrong for dudes, but maybe kind of right for me? We all know how much I love a good pendant.
However, I do know what is NOT right for me and that is the “girly” version of this necklace:
David Yurman Rhodonite Tag Necklace – $975
Blech. This one looks like something that one of those girls on MTV’s Sweet Sixteen show would wear with her age-inappropriate Herve Leger bandage dress to her Marakesh-themed party where she feigns surprise when her parents give her a brand new white BMW 3-series with a big red bow on top. (Okay – rant over.)
But what do we think of the green one?

I like it, but mostly because I like malachite. I wouldn’t pay David Yurman prices for it though. I would look into a cheaper option 🙂
