Jeans and a T-Shirt- Leveled Up with Brilliant Earth

So, last week I was contacted by an ethical jeweler from California called "Brilliant Earth." Brilliant  Earth specializes in ethically sourced diamonds, which is definitely something I can get behind. Their specialty is engagement rings but they have a wide range of fine jewelry including earrings and pendants. (In particular, this TARDIS blue sapphire ring is stunning!)

They asked if I would be interested in participating in their "Personality Style Challenge" by creating a mood/inspiration board with a selection of diamond jewelry from their collection. If you follow D & D you know that I love creating these inspiration boards, so I definitely jumped at the opportunity. 

I ultimately decided to give it a geeky twist (to quote The Little Mermaid..."It's what I do...It's what I LIVE for...) and drew inspiration from Doctor Who and his beautiful and strong companions. I created a look for a "jeans and t-shirt" girl which was one of the personality styles to choose from. I firmly believe that jeans and a graphic t-shirt don't have to be sloppy which is why I chose more tailored pieces. This is a polished, "leveled up" look that includes the 18K White Gold Round Diamond Stud Earrings and the 18K White Gold Fairmined 2mm Comfort Fit Ring.
