Twinkling Trinkets

I am such a girly girl and love all sparkly things. My latest obsession is dainty diamond jewelry and particularly in rose gold.

EF Collection makes beautiful pieces that will fabulously decorate your body, giving you the perfect pop of sparkle to compliment any outfit. I first found out about this brand from my friend, Michelle, because she was wearing a set of the diamond bar stud earrings and I commented on them. I love how the tones of gold are not harsh, but rather a lighter color that flatter every skin tone. I am currently gravitating more toward the gold or rose gold, but would wear any of them as I do not follow the rules of not mixing metals. Everything goes in my book.

The small bar earrings set with white or black diamonds or rubies are my favorite along with the small chevron style necklace. These styles are perfect for everyday as well as layering with other items you already own to create a bohemian look that glitters in the summer sun. The customizable name plate bracelets and necklaces are amazing as well because they have little diamond accents and can be for a boyfriend, husband, or your baby! I think initials or a secret code of letters would also be a great idea instead of completely spelling out a name, but either way it is so sweet.

All That Glitters Is Gold

I am currently obsessed with gold jewelry. Chunky, bold statement necklaces, vintage door knocker Chanel earrings, layered chain necklaces, delicate stackable rings and bracelets, bangles, ear jackets, and studs. More is more in the case of gold jewelry.

I’m not saying wear everything all at once, but tastefully pairing the gold together to best suit your mood and outfit. I was recently invited to the Jacquie Aiche showroom to view the collections and partake in the ultimate jewelry sale. I had been coveting the spiked gold ear jacket and ruby ear piece ever since spotting the pair on Kate Mara. The timing was serendipitous and I was able to snag an ear jacket of my own at a fraction of the price. I was reeling with excitement. My friend Jen and I were like kids in a candy store, scooping up all the pretty treasures to try on and purchase. To our delight, they were even applying gold jewelry tattoos in the back garden for the party. Our inner Bohemian Goddesses were let out that day to shine.

When it comes to jewelry I tend to follow the rules of statement necklace, small stud earring, delicate bracelets, maybe a small ring. Layered delicate necklaces, maybe one has an initial, small stud, stacked bracelets optional. Bold earring, one delicate necklace, stacked rings if you must. The options could go on and on, but the point is statement earrings or statement necklace is the rule. Choose one bold piece to complete your outfit as if it were the icing on the cake, the rest of the jewelry are just the sprinkles.

My favorite places to buy gold jewelry from are Jacquie Aiche (for everything), Natalie B (for vintage locket pieces), and EF Collection (for delicate earrings).
