AUrate Simple Pearl Necklace

When it comes to jewelry in Summer I find that less is more is the way to go. Pairing simple outfits with dainty fine jewelry is the perfect solution for accessorizing in hot temperatures.  I'm delighted to be featuring sustainable jewelry brand AUrate again. I previously featured their Sensu Ear Jackets in rose gold during the holidays.

Pearls can sometimes feel a bit too "proper" for me. I have a full pearl necklace that my Grandmother gave me that is sitting unworn in it's box. It's beautiful but too much for everyday wear. When I saw this simple pearl necklace at AUrate I thought it was perfect! It's made with a sustainably grown Akoya pearl on a thin 14K rose gold chain and goes with any outfit.

A classic pearl necklace can go with everything from fancy dresses to a tee and jeans. For it's first outing I decided to wear it with a thin lacy dress and coordinating heeled sandals. Christian and I ventured to a local historical society with an apple orchard to take these gorgeous shots at sunset!

AUrate only uses ethical solid gold from conflict-free suppliers in vermeil, 14K or 18K gold as well as white gold and rose gold. AUrate only uses real, solid 18-karat and 14-karat gold. 14-karat gold is 14/24th parts, or about 58%, pure gold. The remaining percentage is an alloy, added to enhance the durability and hardness of naturally soft gold.

When it comes to their pearls, AUrate uses the highest quality AAA-grade pearls, plucked from the South Sea and reaching up to 12mm in size. This necklace features smaller Akoya pearls from Japan, ranging from 6.0 to 8.5mm.

Since they sell directly to consumers - many pieces are made to order so they don't have unneeded stock  - you end up saving money. A $200 necklace from AUrate could cost upwards of $520 at traditional retail prices. On each product page they share this information with their customers so you can see the difference, just like another favorite store of mine - Everlane!

I'm going on my honeymoon (FINALLY!) in a couple of weeks and will definitely bring this along.  I don't take much jewelry when I travel, but this necklace will be the perfect finishing touch for all my looks in Italy and Greece. Be prepared to see it a lot in my photos! (unless I get too scared that I'll lose it.)

I got this dress back in February during Roundabout's Winter sale (for $17) but didn't have a good reason to wear it until now.  I wore it to go to Town Hall to pick up our wedding license (WOO!) Seemed a good first wear for it, right? Not that I needed to wear a dress, but it made it feel a little bit more special.

Starting very soon I won't be able to buy as many pieces of clothing as I've become accustomed to. So it's a good thing I got a head start this month and didn't add anything new to my closet. And I've gotten this far so I might as well try to give up clothes shopping for Lent this year, right? One month to go!

UPDATE: Okay, I lied. I just got back from a quick lunch break trip to Roundabout because they were having their blowout sale (80% off clothes + shoes and an additional 20% off clearance). I ended up walking out with a $348 Robert Rodriguez dress for $16.80! Still going to try to go through all of March with no buying though.
