When my favorite arrow-shaped midi ring broke this weekend, I went on the hunt to find a new one to take its place. While browsing, I came across a boatload of awesome arrow-themed pieces that kept the structure of a classic arrow, all with their own elements of glam and uniqueness.

Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you’d wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club. In other words, not me at all. Pearls (both faux and real) are having a major comeback, but thankfully these 13 pieces are better suited for a night at a rock show than hitting a sale at Lilly Pulitzer.
TRIBE, a social business that works with women in Uganda to help them sell their wares, is teaming up with L.A. jewelry brand TOMTOM to sell limited edition necklaces. Each piece combines the signature hand-rolled paper beads of TRIBE craftswomn together with tiny geometric brass beads that reflect the architectural aesthetic of TOMTOM Jewelry. The results are two beautiful statement necklaces that embody and empower the TRIBEGURL artisans of Uganda and their families. These limited edition necklaces are available for $70 on TOMTOM.
