New Collection from AUrate

I've mentioned the book The Curated Closet a few times. It's been a great resource for defining my personal style (instead of just saying "I like that!"). Part of the process is collecting images and then figuring out exactly why a certain look or outfit appeals to you. One thing I've learned is that I love metallics. In a casual outfit or one with mostly neutral colors, a bit of shine can elevate a look and add a finishing touch. I've been looking for more ways to add metallics into my wardrobe, so it seemed like perfect timing last week when I was contacted by AUrate about their new jewelry collection.

AUrate is a relatively new company based in the US. Their mission is "Durable Materials, Transparent Pricing, Sustainable Production and Tangible Giving." They design and create their pieces in New York and offer direct-to-consumer, eliminating the wholesaler and reducing costs, making their jewelry far more affordable. AUrate is also involved in charitable giving and donates a book for every item purchased (read more about them here).

Beyond all these appealing business practices, the jewelry is exactly my style. If I had to define my style (and I do have to define it, after making my way through The Curated Closet!) I would call it "simple, with a twist". I love pieces that feel familiar but are unique. I could see any number of AUrate's creations in my life. Now that my littlest offspring has hit the 1 year mark, I'm excited to add jewelry back into my wardrobe without fear of it being grabbed or broken. 

AUrate is launching a new collection today, The Solid Circle Collection. Here are a few selections from the lookbook:




Check out the new collection and all the other pieces online. AUrate offers free shipping and returns in the US. I've been dying to get a bar necklace like this one (even before AUrate contacted me!) and I also love these two rings:

Do you use jewelry to pull together your looks? What are your favorite pieces? I've always been a white gold kind of gal (i.e. my wedding rings) but lately I love traditional yellow gold in my accessories, and rose gold is a great option as well.
