Fenton Skull & Mask Bali Necklace

At first glance, this might look crazy but you’d be surprised by how much wear you can get out of this. Well, this isn’t something you can pull off on a daily basis, that would be crazy.

Tory Burch's India-Inspired Resort Jewelry Collection

I can’t pull-off too many of Tory Burch’s clothes (though I have my eye on this unique top!), but I LOVE, LOVE her jewelery. The designer’s jewelery mixes fun and color with more classic (sometimes a little Cartier/Hermes-esque), pieces, making it hard to resist buying something when you go into one of her boutiques.

nOir jewelry at L.A.M.B. Spring 2011 Runway Show

When it comes to costume jewelry, nOir is my favorite (KJL is a close second, but the quality doesn’t hold a candle to nOir). The brand debuted their new collection, designed by Leeora Catalan, on the L.A.M.B.

Roberta Freymann Statement Necklaces

I was first made of aware of Roberta Freymann‘s line of jewelery after doing some research on some fabulous necklace that Olivia Palermo was photographed wearing.

Given Palermo’s impeccable taste I’m not surprised that I’m … Continue reading “Roberta Freymann Statement Necklaces”
