Jewelry Haul :)

Hello folks!

Today I thought do something a bit different on the blog by showing you guys some of the jewelry items I picked up this summer while out shopping with mom 🙂

I don’t wear a lot of chunky jewelry..my preference leans more towards simple stuff you can wear anywhere..to the grocery store and to work 😀

Rose gold chains

Rose gold chains

I’ve got a fascination for all things rose gold (Laptops and phones included ) and I could not pass up on these guys which were on sale at one of the local stores where my folks are based. The chain with the cubes is a favorite..it looks really nice when worn with a white outfit in particular. The other chain with the 3 different rings is a common pattern, but I picked it up since I don’t own anything like it.

My first 'big ' piece of jewelry :D

My first ‘big ‘ piece of jewelry 😀

So remember what I said about me liking simple jewelry at the beginning of this post…well I decided to try out something which is out of my comfort zone 🙂 The above piece is a dull gold color which, resembles battle armor 😐 according to the husband ! I have yet to wear this outside my house..he he ..will try to wear it out soon.

enamel jewelry

Enamel jewelry

My love affair with enamel jewelry  started when I first laid my eyes upon some exquisite pieces from the Austrian jewelry company called Freywille. Check out their website HERE to see for your self their lovely enamel art work on 18K gold jewelry. The above pendant and earrings are not 18k gold nor are they from Freywille but they look equally pretty and I got them on sale 😉 …so I am a very happy girl!

Gun metal anyone?

Gun metal anyone?

I picked up this gun metal chain and earrings set solely because of the orange stones! The orange stones and the gun metal go so well together and look great when worn with outfits which are dark in color.

I am pretty happy with my haul, especially since it has been a while since I picked up any jewelry pieces. Hope you all enjoyed seeing these pieces! What have you guys been shopping for lately?

Until next time…ciao!!

Some of my favorite earrings for Fall/Winter !

Hey everyone!

SO this is it..we are on the last leg of summer! I was de cluttering my jewelry stash the other day and I thought hey why not blog about some of my favorites! After all I write about all things beauty and these fit the bill perfectly!! As I was reorganizing and purging through my collection it struck me that I always tend to wear long more elaborate earrings during the fall and winter months..with them getting chunkier and more elaborate the closer it is to winter! I dunno about you guys but the reason I do this is because once you start layering up the only jewelry you can really use as a ‘statement piece’ is earrings 🙂

This  blue and gold disc earrings were an absolute favorite of mine last year! I picked these up on a trip to India and they have held up quite well despite a lot of man handling from my side! I like to pair my earrings with my scarfs since I mostly stick to black outer coats/jackets. I used to pair these guys with a nice rich blue scarf very often!

These are smaller in size and if I remember correctly I got these from Old Navy. They are quite well made and pretty for the price (I think they were 5-6 $)! I love that these are the clasp type and not the hook ones. I have lost so many hook type earrings over the years 😦 that I have a tiny bag of single earrings missing a pair!

I have never worn this pair! I completely forgot that I had these with me 🙂 I will definitely be busting these out this fall. This pair is kind of big and a little heavy which is probably why it hasn’t received much love from moi! Don’t you hate it when you pick up a lovely pair of earrings and then don’t wear them since they are heavy.

This was another pair which received a lot of love last year! However, I think wore this more in the winter than during fall. This was also purchased at the same place as the blue and gold disc type earrings.

This mother of pearl earrings were a birthday gift from a friend maybe 5 years ago! I didn’t quite like it back then but now I really love these. They are really light weight and so pretty too!

I hope to add some new pieces to my collection soon! Any suggestions for good online jewelry stores ?
