Remember those beaded safety pin bracelets from camp? Yes, the elastic ones with the multi-colored seed beads. We never, ever, thought safety pin jewelry would make a comeback. However, ever since we spotted this sparkly, gold safety pin necklace, we’ve been obsessed. It’s delicate and yet it adds an element of toughness to any outfit. So, we stand corrected. Office supplies can be fashionable. [$100, CC Skye] Keep reading »
“Target: Women” host Sarah Haskins hits it out of the park in her assassination of gift giving jewelry for holidays and the commercials marketing the trend. From “jewelry face” and creepy voice overs to the “special memories” associated with shiny baubles and what jewelry says about a relationship, Haskins knocks it out of the park. It will almost make you NOT want to get jewelry as gift. Almost. Keep reading »
We love the modern look of these Satellite rings by Anne Kiel, which are made in gorgeous, bright colors with sterling silver and resin. They’d look awesome on your left ring finger, the one everyone is always glancing at when you’re at Home Depot looking at tools and they’re wondering why you’re there alone, and you have to explain, “No, no, this isn’t a wedding ring! It’s a satellite ring. It’s awesome and means I can come to Home Depot alone and find things that, sure, I can’t lift into my car but so what? I’ve got this great non-symbolic ring and I’m wearing it with pride!” Or, you could just wear it on another finger. [$91, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »
Personally, I think these are really rad. Made by Etsy retailer Margaux Lange, these earrings, necklaces, and rings are made from disembodied Barbie parts. Edgy? Subversive? Icky? Or all of the above? [$110-$185, Etsy] Keep reading »
We’re hotly anticipating the release of Nicole Richie’s jewelry line, “House of Harlow 1960”, named for daughter Harlow as well as her love for the 1960s style. From what we’ve seen previewed, everything, from the chunky bangles to the drapey necklaces, is covetable. [Available in November at ShopKitson.com] Keep reading »
Sure, dressing up for Halloween is fun and all, but buying a costume that you’ll wear for one night seems like a waste of money. We suggest you put together an ensemble from your own closet, then splurge on a little piece of jewelry that invokes that spirit of the season but can be worn all year. Diamonds make spiders seem a whole lot more appealing, don’t they?
For those who love to travel or covet a particular city, this necklace is perfect for displaying which place has your heart. Destination charm necklace available in: Amsterdam, California, Paris, Texas, Venice, London, New York, and Tokyo. [$24, UrbanOutfitters.com] Keep reading »
We’ve experienced growing, cooking and smoking herbs (sage, duh!), but it took jewelry designer Metalsgirl to convince us how wearable the plants are, too. Metalsgirl uses herbs like Thyme, Poppy seed, Rosemary, and Scullcap in a lovely line we covet called Resin and Herb. Love the color combination of this black, white, red and celery green necklace and while we’re not sure which herb it features, we think it’s a hit. [$80, Metalsgirl] Keep reading »
