Emily Gilmore is the sophisticated part of the hit TV show, “The Gilmore Girls”. You may hate her, and her panic room buying ways, but you must admit that she always looks very put together. Emily has very expensive tastes, but you can very easily copy her jewelry style on a budget. For Emily’s style you will need:
1. Gold Chain: Emily often wears this with her sweater sets. It should be a short chain, about 16″ because Emily wears such high necklines.
2. Pearl Earrings: Emily favors simple pearl earrings. Try a freshwater pearl to save money and no one will be able to tell. This is one of the best buys I’ve ever posted. Get all four sets of these genuine freshwater pearl earrings for only $19.99. These would make great bridesmaids gifts, or you can keep a pair for yourself and have three Christmas gifts ready to go. Just don’t tell Emily how inexpensive they were.
3. Pearl Necklace: Emily often wears a large black pearl necklace. These give the appearance of Tahitian pearls which often cost more than a mid sized automobile. Try a strand of grey or black freshwater pearls instead. This is a great strand because it is 70″ long so it can be doubled over for a multiple strand effect for less than $50.
4. A brooch is a necessity for all of the DAR meetings. A pin says “I’m so rich even my clothes wear jewelry”. It looks fabulous on the tweed jackets that Emily wears. If you can’t afford real diamonds, try a brooch with Marcasite in it, that will still give you that sparkle for under $50. Look in your jewelry box, and bring out the pieces that your grandmother left you because brooches are in style once again.
You can easily put together Emily Gilmore’s style in no time, and very inexpensively. You’ll be firing maids in no time.
