  1. Thanks for sharing your article about the different pieces of jewelry. I like that you talked about the different materials that a necklace can be made of. I also agree that necklaces complement the way you dress up. My daughter is aspiring to be a fashion designer. Her main model is herself, so she can easily experiment different styles and fashion. Since her birthday is coming, I’m looking to buy a set of jewelry for her that will totally help her achieve the look that she wants. She once mentioned to me her love for necklaces that are made out of silver and gold. I will make sure to consider your checklist when I go shopping for her.
