Kohl’s Pink Elephant Necklace

Kohl’s Pink Elephant Necklace: The Elephant in the Room

I had my first mammogram at 31 to create a baseline for comparison against the one I would have when I turned 40. Just last month I visited the doctor again and was told this time to return due to an “area of concern.” Note to self – don’t open letters from a hospital on Saturday morning.

CUCHARA Chokers: Making a Statement

Statement pieces often require you to break a piggy bank or two, but it’s hard to maintain the pow factor of a statement jewel when you wear it over and over again. To keep the momentum going, you really need to change your jewelry up, which is why I love CUCHARA. The line offers a mix of edgy, alt-rocker pieces at affordable price points.

This is not the first time we’ve featured Eddera, but now we’re switching focus from French jeweler Camille Vizzavona’s gorgeous, celebrity-adored headbands to her equally stunning gems. Camille studied at the Louvre’s jewelry school under Adalbert Smoliar, the head designer for Van Cleef and Arpels, making jewels her first love.

Love Gold: Holiday Gift Guide

Last week I shared what I want for the holidays (fingers crossed the hubby was reading!). This week my focus is on what to give. Christmas is just six days away, but don’t panic. I’ve rounded up jewels for every woman on your list from the wife to the Mom Snob to the bestie and sisters, all at different price points.

James Banks Jewelry

James Banks Jewelry: Like a Moth to a Flame

I look at jewelry all day long (for work!), and I have to say that James Banks is one of the most unique lines I’ve come across in a long time. The antique-style pieces are made by Alice in Wonderland jewelry and prop designer Heidi Nahser Fink and Adam Shulman, Anne Hathaway’s hubby.

Love Gold: All I Need for Christmas is Love…

Every year as soon as the Halloween decorations have been packed away, I spring into gift-hunting mode, and every year, I end up finding as many presents for myself as for my family and friends. At the top of my list? Jewelry and lots of it!

Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela

Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela: Crystalactite Collection

Most jewelers try to design something original using the same old techniques they have always worked with, but Atelier Swarovski and Maison Martin Margiela know that to be truly innovative, you have to break the mold.

Snob Holiday Shop

Snob Holiday Shop: 20% Off Charm & Chain!

While we’ve just about made it to the most wonderful time of the year, there’s still one hurdle left to clear – holiday shopping. I love shopping and I love picking out special gifts for family and friends, but between a long list to buy for and an even longer line of people at the register, it can be a serious challenge, especially for Snobs on a budget.

Frugal Snob: Custom Ryan Porter Bracelets

Custom usually means expensive, but not so with Krysten Kauder’s new line Ryan Porter bracelets. In fact I ordered the above bracelets for about $20! Admittedly the bracelets don’t look expensive, but the point isn’t for them to look expensive – the point is for them to help express your personality in a fun, quirky way that, at least for me, brings back childhood memories.
