French Connection: Tassle Collar Necklace

The Tassle Collar Necklace from French Connection came through today on my Shop It To Me. What I like about it is that it's a short collar necklace but the hanging tassles gives it glamour and drama. I think that this necklace would look great with a dark colored v-neck anything.

Maap Studio: Porcelain Rings

Maap Studio makes these lovely rings using parian porcelain clay which is a type of a ceramic material used mainly in eighteenth century Europe. The rings are inspired by nature and are each a wearable work of art. I love how feminine they are without be overly girly. My favorite is the Cosumel Porcelain Ring With Flower Decoration because of the way the green color subtly peeks out from underneath all that white.

RACHEL Rachel Roy Turquoise Cord Jet Chip Necklace

I saw this Rachel Roy necklace today on StyleCaster as one of their "Five Online Shopping Steals - Spring Necklaces Under $100." I like the cord connected to the metal chains and the 3 gold pieces stuck in amongst all the black. StyleCaster describes this as "Beach meets city girl meets affordable style." Although priced at $80 I'm not sure if I would consider this such a "steal."

eBay Finds: Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane Dome Ring

Current Price: $24.99 or Buy It Now $115
Shipping: $5.00
Time Left: 4 days 10 hours
The seller says that this vintage Kenneth Jay Lane ring is from the 1970's. Seller also says that it is missing a few of the stones (read the listing descriptions carefully and see the pictures) resulting in it being listed at such a good price. Even with the missing stones I think that this is a great vintage find.

Colby June: Stacked Rock Earrings

These Colby June sterling silver earrings are inspired by river rocks. These "bold but simple" earrings are fairly large but are still lightweight and comfortable which is hard to find when you're dealing with large, dangling earrings. I like these because they are "bold but simple," so you can add a lot to an outfit without having to wear a lot of jewelry.

Wisteria: Book Boxes

I'm always looking for ways to store my ever growing jewelry collection so I was very excited when I read Design*Sponge's post under $100:jewelry storage. My favorite of the collection was the Book Boxes available exclusively from Wisteria. I like that they don't look like your typical jewelry box. They come in 2 different sizes (2-stack or 3-stack) and a variety of colors (green, blue, pink, turquoise and red). There is also a compartmental single stack style available.

Triian: Resin Rings

I love these resing rings from Triian. Each ring is handmade and one of a kind using a Poly Resin blend that is unique to Triian. I love the mix of smooth and rough and the small crystals that are used to detail in what looks as though a completely random way. These rings have no uniform shape making them incredibly unique. Triian was even featured on Daily Candy. Be sure to check out Triian's Esty shop for equally unique pendants and their website which is coming soon and will feature more of their work. Verbena also has some of their bangles and necklaces for purchase.

Urban Outfitters: Hope Marian by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Rhinestone Bracelet

This bracelet comes from the collection Hope Marian which is an exclusive collection at Urban Outfitters from Lizzie Fortunato Jewels. The bracelet is a mix of fabric, chains and rhinestones. There are 4 different bracelets available and the "Blue Wrap" colored one (pictured) is my favorite. I like the mix of colors and materials that make up the bracelet. It could also easily be worn on a daily basis. It's available for $28 at Urban Outfitters online and in their stores.

ASOS: Short Structured Pyramid Studded Plate Necklace

ASOS is a UK based independent online fashion and beauty retailer. They are very fashion-forward and up with the trends. They carry their own ASOS branded line that is very affordable as well designer labels that can range to the very expensive. Although they ship from the UK, they have $6 flat rate shipping to the USA which is very reasonable. The ASOS Short Structured Pyramid Studded Plate Necklace is very reasonably priced at only $20.29 for such a large piece. For some reason I'm very into Pyramid Studs right now and really liking this necklace. I think it would pair great with the ASOS Rock Chick Wristwear Set.

Threadsence: Minzer Necklaces

I love the mix of fabric and chains by indie designer Minzer. These are available through the indie designer shop Threadsence where you can find some other really great products by indie designers. There are more items by Minzer available in her Etsy shop.

Melissa Borrell: 2D3D Orbit Rings

Melissa Borrell has come up with a very unique and contemporary concept for her 2D3D Orbit Rings. Your 2D3D Orbit Ring comes as a flat oval that you then bend and shape to your liking! These rings would make a great gift especially for that person who has already everything. Be sure to check out her shop to see her entire 2D3D Jewelry collection.

Artalgal: 3 clear white zirconia ring

I like how when you look at this ring straight on, it looks like the gold inlays are rays coming out of the middle white cubic zirconia. I'm normally not a big fan of mixing silver and gold but I am definitely a big fan of this ring. Be sure to check out Artalgal's Etsy shop for other great, one of a kind pieces.

Top Shop: Wrap Ball Drop Earrings

Saw these earrings in the Soho Top Shop store a few weeks ago and was amazed at how lightwight they are. Gold colored metal in filigree is wrapped around a black plastic ball gives these an expensive vintage look without the high price tag (only $30) and long search.

Alloy: Prism Collar

Alloy's Prism Collar will be great addition to your jewelry collection for the summer. Very easy to throw on with your favorite sundress or bathing suit coverup and easy to take off when it's time to lay out or go for a swim. It's very bright and colorful while still being versatile enough to match almost anything.
