SPOTLIGHT ON... JOURNALISTS & JEWELRY
BY MEREDITH JAYME
WE'RE TAKING A LOOK AT HOW FEMALE JOURNALISTS INCORPORATE JEWELRY INTO THEIR ON-AIR WARDROBES
Not only do journalists have to think about how they share stories with the world and which ones, but they also have to think about every single detail of their personal appearance and style. Not only do blemishes have to be hidden, makeup has to be just glam enough, their hair has to be perfectly styled, but their wardrobe also has to appeal to the masses as well as their own personal taste. There seem to be two sides of the spectrum in terms of journalists jewelry styles. There is the signature, wear-everywhere piece that is classic and personal, like Gayle King’s diamond heart pendant necklace. On the other hand there are the statement pieces including costume and fashion jewelry pieces that might be worn more like a trend item, like Gayle King’s collection of long layered necklaces. Read more below to discover some of our favorite jewelry moments from journalists and to see how they wear jewelry while on the job.
