Jewelry is something that I'll always collect and value. There's something to be said about a favorite necklace or bracelet that stays with you always and that you can hardly leave the house without. Such pieces are what makes up Ariel Gordon's eponymous jewelry line. I fell in love with the collection when I first spotted the diamond arc necklace and have since been lusting after delicate gold bangles, sapphire dotted charms, gold stacked rings and dainty necklaces. Naturally, I was beyond excited when she asked me to model her collection for the 2011 lookbook. Here's a peek at the images by Tyler Jennings, hair and makeup by Kristen Heitkotter and styling by Ariel and moi.
