Classic & Modern Iconic Jewelry

We here at Blue Door Beads find there are certain pieces of jewelry in our stash that we can always wear, no matter what kind of mood we are in. We wear these items so frequently, we sometimes become known for them: Sara’s coconut shell ring, Rachel’s shoulder-dusting chain earrings, and Lydia’s hand-stamped zombie necklace:

We have other jewelry we love, of course, but these are our go-to pieces. That got us thinking about other people’s trademark jewelry, and we decided to compile a few photos of our favorite iconic jewelry from past and present. We hope you enjoy them!
