Like the Millennial Mama Herself, Her Jewelry Is Beautiful Yet Practical

Her jewelry is beautiful yet practical.

WHEN SHE ISN’T MAKING conference calls, scheduling nap time, or meeting with advisory boards, the Millennial Mama does her best to make time for herself, which includes dressing up in beautiful yet affordable jewelry. But her everyday jewelry won’t be at risk of being caught on a delicate blankie, nor will it scratch the most precious of runny noses.

1. Delphine Leymarie

Even when this new mama is furiously typing away on her iMac, she’s never not thinking of the little person whose heartbeat she watched on a monitor not so long ago, as reflected in her go-to earrings.

Thrifty yet bold, the Millennial Mama seeks fashionable jewelry that is created by brands that make statements without damaging her bank account.

3. Baume

One of the truly millennial-like characteristics about this mama is that even though she loves the look of a fine watch, she also cares greatly about ethics and the environment – and will teach her child to do the same.

4. Wendy Brandes

The Millennial Mama does it all with attitude, pizzazz, and in a pair of killer heels, which is why she chose a pinky ring that would reflect both her go-getter outlook as well as her appreciation for the latest trends.
