After the Romance

So the day of love is over y’all!!! I took really quick pictures of the stuff I wore up until Valentines Day and still I’ll probably be wearing throughout the remainder of February. (Forgive the pictures as it looks like I took them with a box instead of a camera. I will repost MUCH better pictures later)

A friend made this necklace. Its cut agate in pink with the words Love in a square formation. I love this since it’s so trendy.

This is a pink flower enamel ring with clear crystal scattered on the petals. I wore that with the pink charm necklace on the left. Simple yet elegant.

Below is a charm bracelet that I actually wore as an anklet since it can fit me now. Just pink and white gems on gold chain link.

Below is a chunky heart necklace with matching earrings. I actually got this years ago at a hair store, lol. Say what you will but I love costume jewelry. It never turned colors on me and is still sparkly ūüôā

Another heart charm necklace. The heart itself is coral and the flower is enamel. The rest of the necklace is gold.

This is a gunmetal funky heart necklace. I take it by now you’re noticing how much I love hearts, lol.

I got this years ago from a friend who was just going to throw it away!!! Insane right? So I saved it’s life and found other uses for it. It’s a chunky chain link necklace with pink dangling beads. If you’re wearing all black, or a strapless top or dress, this necklace looks great.

And last but not least. Some cute little heart shaped earrings. If you’re wearing your hair up, these are for you!

If you have pictures of your own jewelry that you’d like to show off, send them to JewelFetish@hotmail.com under the heading, “My Jewelry” along with the name you want shown, and I’ll upload them in a separate post.

Coming up next we’ll be talking about the amethyst and showing off some amethyst jewelry. If you have amethyst jewelry of your own, or just the raw gemstone itself, you can send those pictures as well to JewelFetish@hotmail.com under the heading “Amethyst” along with the name you want shown and I’ll upload them in my next post.

See you next time!

Bronze, Gunmetal, and Chunky

They say that bigger¬†doesn’t always mean better, but this fall… it certainly does. I remember my mother telling me how she hated my big, gaudy jewelry. Now I can say I had the right idea all along ūüôā¬†Big jewelry is now a huge fashion statement and primary choice¬†for various body adornments. The slender bracelets of yesterday are being replaced¬†by huge, hefty jewelry that you can feel¬†when you wear them.¬†Do you remember the days when you would look at your wrist, which was dressed¬†up with either an¬†I.D. bracelet or small chain¬†and wonder why it wasn’t there anymore and where you dropped it? Well, not with these guys.

They’re bold and make a statement and I love them!

Even the chunky rings and the beloved flower rings slipped on just about every finger this summer and the trend is continuing even into the fall. They’re coveted… you can never have too many.¬†Many of these rings are fashion¬†jewelry, but I rarely discriminate. I love all baubles ūüôā

Drop earrings are keeping in with the bigger and better theme too! And they’re really fancy. These babies will never get old!

Huge pendant necklaces are still thriving on the necklines as well.

Okay so I know I said that I don’t discriminate, however the below collar necklaces are being spotted more and more and have even been seen adorning models on the runway.¬†I’m thinking that maybe these babies are more for the club, or elaborate themed party….? Ya… I just don’t know.
