Sparkly, Shiny, and Dangling Things

It has been a few weeks since I have created a new blog post. I have been so busy that I haven't had much free time. However, I have been surfing the web for fashion and lately this seasons jewelry has really caught my eyes. I have seen fabulous items that are gem based in great jewel tones. I have also been witness to great metal pieces whether they be shiny or brushed, gold or silver. I just cleaned out my jewelry armoire so I can make some more space for the pieces I have my eye on. Just a note.....if you have any jewelry that is gently used, take it to your local Clothes Mentor(resale shop) for cash so you can pick up some new pieces at no price to you!!
OK so lets start with fabulous!! These two pieces are definitely splurges, but the holidays are right around the corner, so put them on your list!
I absolutely want the necklace on the left with mine and my sweetheart's first name initials. Its too cute. I also adore the little girl kissing a boy necklace. Its just different and cute. Both of these necklaces are from and the one on the left is $143 and the right is $176. has some great pieces but they are all pricey, yet they can be customized for a one of a kind item.
Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores for accessories because of their items are so colorful and eclectic. If you are familiar with Anthroplogie you probably know that some of their items are in the hundreds of dollars. I tried to keep all the items from them under $100 unless I am just obsessed, like this first pair.
I adore these fish skeleton dangling earrings. They are so cute, however they are $118.
 These dainty and delicate looking rose and gem earrings are a perfect combination of traditional style with fabulous gems. They run for $38.

I love gold anything. I try to step outside of my little box and where other metal tones but I really love gold. These brushed gold cluster flower earrings are so pretty and feminine, and they are $48.

I am really digging this geometrical inspired necklace. I love all the reds and beiges and small hints of green. I think this a great necklace for winter! It retails for $78.

This necklace is so different. I love that in incorporates two different metal tones and a pop of color around the clasp. It is $118, but it is so fabulous and sparkly!
This sunburst toned gem necklace is the perfect pop of color to any outfit! And the best news of all, it is only $48.

Last but not least from Anthrolpologie is the branch cuff. It is also only $48, and as you know I am attracted to gold pieces so, of course it caught my eye.

I saw a few pieces from BCBGeneration that I am loving right now. I have seen many of those collar necklaces and they have one that I really like. It's sparkly and fun but it can be paired with many pieces of clothing and it's only $48. I am also a sucker for double finger rings, and I found this dingle finger ring that looks double for $18.
The three piece set below is an offer I cannot refuse. It is from and retails for $39.95. I love how all the pieces are fun for the upcoming holiday and winter season. I love the tones of the green jeweled earrings and the sparkly black and white danglers. I can't wait until it arrives on my doorstep!
Last but not least I have found a hue selection of great jewelry from Stella&Dot. The line can be pretty pricey, but if you host a show for one of their stylist, you can snag some major discounts and even free items. I could not get the pictures to save any bigger, but it like what you see, check out their site!!
The cluster necklace and bracelet below are so clean and polished! They are the perfect bit of spunk to add to any outfit without it being too much. Both pieces run at $59 each.

 I also love the smoke toned gem stacked ring. It has the perfect sparkle and pizazz and its not too clunky. I think it transitions well too, from work to cocktails! It runs for $54.
The necklace below is a multi-stranded (at least ten strands) red and gold beaded necklace. It is a bit of a splurge at $128 but can be worn with almost anything, especially solids.

Lastly, I have chosen two similar colored earrings. I love the sea blue tones on both of these pieces. I think the hoops are amazing for any fay around town and the danglers are perfect to a cream colored party dress. The danglers are $49 and the hoops are $54.

Don't forget that jewelry can make any outfit. It can take it from night to day, work to cocktails, and plain to casually charming.
