I still remember my school days, as they were not that long ago, and one of my favorite days of the year was the first day of school. I loved coming back, and seeing my friends again after a long summer of traveling and spending time with family. There were always so many stories, and wonderful anecdotes, as well as changed faces and new hairstyles.
This eventfulness carried on throughout the first week, and my friends and me talked about where we had been, our new beaus and our latest shopping sprees. Nothing compares to showing off a new super special cardigan or unique piece of jewelry. Since I spent my time in school, as many kids do today, in a boring uniform, one of the things that we turned to, to make us unique, was our jewels.
Jewelry allowed us self expression, under a very rigid dress code. It also, in a very superficial way, helped us align ourselves with like-minded people, and was even a way to start a conversation with a new student, who would then become a new friend. In other words, jewelry was a very important aspect of our daily attire, even as girls in school.
I have chosen these beautiful pieces from my collection as perfect back to school pieces. They are all understated and chic, as well as casual and wearable. Everything I'm showing here can be worn on a daily basis. Check out this fabulous earrings and necklaces from my "Charmed" collection. They come in all colors and shapes, perfect for every kind of fashionable girl.

Another popular style for younger generations these days are my celestial bangles. These are great because they can be worn alone or together or in pairs even. It just depends on your mood and outfit. The tri color gold combination makes them very trendy right now, as well as easy to combine with the jewelry pieces you already own. The baguette cut diamonds don't hurt either.
