Let me start by saying, I’m not a huge wearer of jewelry. There are a few different reasons. One, work. I feel like too much going on when I’m working is distracting and I hadn’t found the right pieces to compliment my work attire. Two, I’ve never really found pieces that I have fallen in love with wearing all the time. Ana Luisa reached out to me a while back and after going back and fourth with myself, I decided to collab. Ana Luisa is jewelry done right. I’ve fallen in love and I’ve found pieces that completely resolve my reasons for not wearing much jewelry.
Another thing you should know about me is that I hardly dress up. We aren’t fancy, and really enjoy being as laid back as possible. I use to look at jewelry as accessories for dressing up. Even my diamond studs and pearls stay tucked away unless we have special plans. I do admit though, that I feel more put together with jewelry on. Either a necklace, chunky bracelet or earrings really make an outfit an outfit and complete a look.
Ana Luisa interested me at first because of their responsible, ethical and sustainable approach to jewelry making. Instead of mining gold, Ana Luisa gives existing gold a second chance at life and makes sure all plating is done in-house. Ethical and safe working conditions are really important to the brand and I fully respect them for that.
Another reason Ana Luisa stood out to me is how they make their pieces in small batches as to not waste any materials. The offer 14k solid gold pieces made of 100% recycled gold. Their prices are attractive too. Instead of having a retailer markup, Ana Luisa cuts out the middle-man and offers beautiful jewelry at a wholesale cost. The quality is that of a fine jeweler, but at a fraction of the price.
Now on to the pieces I’m loving!
The Kelly Angel Wing Necklace is by far my favorite piece I own right now. I can dress it up or down and it looks great either way. I’m a jeans and tee type of girl, and this necklace layered with the Chuck Gold necklace makes me feel like a million bucks. The Kelly gives back to the National Alliance on Metal Illness and boasts 14 k gold plating. The Chuck Gold Necklace is a perfect more feminine piece with 14k gold plating and sterling silver. I’ve been wearing the two together literally everyday!
The prices, the designs and the mission of the company is right on point with everything I love and believe in. It’s safe to say that I’m a fan and I look forward to upping my jewelry game with Ana Luisa!
