I was never much into math in high school or university, but they made me take it of course and I think I didn’t do too bad in the end. Although I don’t seem to remember a single thing from those classes, I am sure applied math must have been my favorite. Applied to jewelry, that is. Check out these geometric beauties I found for you.

I love these native American inspired necklaces because they’re so colorful and ‘different’. I am pretty sure they will cheer up any boring old outfit and start many a conversation. 

I am SO glad brass seems to be back on the menu for now. I love the industrial look of it and when it’s shaped delicately like these two necklaces above, it instantly turns into the perfect accessory to wear with jeans and a frilly shirt.

So, I hate to be the one to draw conclusions hastily, or make generalizations of any kind, but I think these sweet, girly geometric necklaces show girls can totally be good at math and still be cute. I am sure I could have been good at math. If I wanted to. (I think my old-school feminist mom might hang me for this remark, she studied math but was never able to teach me. She does like pretty necklaces, though).

That’s it! Have you come across any great geometrical necklaces lately, now that they seem to be in style? 

 

Thank you Anna Denise from the Yellow Umbrella for writing this post for us.
