Urban Outfitters: Owl Ring

I've been searching for an enamel animal ring for a few months after seeing a girl wearing one. I haven't found my perfect animal enamel ring yet but was pleasantly surprised when I saw this Owl Ring at Urban Outfitters. I love the way gold and white look together and owls are animals that are always in-style when it comes to jewelry.

Pottery Barn: Glass Boxes

I'm always looking for new ways to store my jewelry and I saw these glass boxes in the Pottery Barn catalog and thought they would be great to store my big bangle bracelets in. I think they would be great to store the bracelets because they are glass so you can still see what's inside (they're meant to be used as ways to display items) so you don't have to worry about "forgetting" what you own. They are also good storage options because the size is big enough to hold larger, unflexible bracelets. There are 2 sizes available and are currently on sale!

Cynamonn: Linen Necklaces

I saw Cynamonn's Baltic Amber Linen Necklace on the front page of Etsy on Tuesday and of course I had to visit her shop where I saw more of these same style necklace. They are made from hand crochet linen adorned with stones or freshwater pearls. They are each one-of a kind and she will take custom orders. My personal favorite is the Ivory-Nude Linen Necklace with Beautiful Fluorite Stone Beads. I like it because the materials and colors remind me of the beach and would love to wear it with a simple sun dress to a beach wedding.

Smart Bargains: Green Jewel Bib Necklace

I saw this necklace today on Smart Bargains and I was pleasantly surprised that it is labelled as a bib necklace. I personally haven't yet bought into the bib necklace trend since I haven't really found too many that are unique and to my taste but I do really like this bib necklace because it still has the same "styling" of a bib necklace without looking like all the other ones out there. One big thing about bib necklaces that I'm not too big a fan of is when they have ribbons for chains. I like that this one has an actual chain for it's chain. It's on sale right now for only $22.98 and also comes in grey.

Ann Taylor LOFT: Long Silver Nugget Necklace

I saw this necklace last week on the Ann Taylor LOFT website but my computer was having problems uploading photos (hence the lack of posts) so I couldn't post it until today and it is no longer listed on the website. It may still be available in stores so be sure to check out your local store for it, it's a great basic necklace that will work for summer layering and will easily carry over through all the seasons.

Free People: Antiqued Flower Rings

Two cast iron flowers with antiqued finishes rest atop a brass band making this beautiful ring from Free People. I haven't seen this ring in person but all of the reviews on the Free People website say it is as beautiful and unique as it looks in the pictures. It is currently marked down from $78.00 to $49.95.

eBay Finds: Vintage Gold Tone Necklace with Rhinestones

Vintage Gold Tone Necklace with Rhinestones
Current Price: $9.99
Shipping Cost: $4.99
Time Left: 6 days 23 hours

This is a great looking vintage necklace. The seller doesn't provide much detail about the size and length but I think based on the pciture it would work alone or layered.

Forever 21: Koi Fish Necklace

I have a long silver fish necklace that bought off of eBay a few years ago that I wear often (and my sister always borrows when she's in town). Whenever I wear it I get a lot of compliments on it, especially from guys. The fish pendant is movable and that's always the first thing people ask me and then they ask if they can move it and where I got it from. Since I purchased mine off of eBay, it's hard for someone else to find the same necklace. However, Forever 21 has this Koi Fish Necklace that is pretty similar. I like that it comes in colors (mine is just silver) and that is also has movable parts. another big plus is that it's only $6.80 and is available from Forever 21 so it is easy to purchase.

ASOS: Resin Ring With Gold Mesh Domed Front

Another great find at ASOS. The Resin Ring with Gold Mesh Domed Front is a great size, color and style. I like that the band on this ring is made from resin since in the summer months when the weather is warm, my fingers swell up and sometimes wearing metal banded rings can feel uncomfortable so I prefer non-metal banded rings like wood, resin or carved stone.

Hive and Honey: Multi Long Chain Necklace

Piperlime has received some new jewelry from Hive and Honey that is very affordable and up with the current trends. My favorite piece is this Multi Long Chain Necklace. It is very affordable at only $30 (great price for a mutli chain necklace like this) and very versatile. This is necklace makes an easy transition from day to night make it's value even better.

Gretel Home: Industreal Uni Containers

I love these Industreal Uni Containers from Gretel Home. I really like the texture and think that one would look great mixed in with my collection of wood jewelry boxes.

Maribelle Campa: Leather Cord Bangles

Maribelle Campa's Leather Cord Bangle Bracelets are the perfect summer bracelet. Since they are made from leather cords, they will be light and airy so you don't have to worry about your skin getting too hot underneath. They also come in a variety of colors that will add color to your outfit, and you have the option of gold or silver plated tubes. My personal favorite is the Coral with Silver because I like the way the color Coral looks against tan skin.

Sikara & Co.: Brushed Swirly Earrings

I saw these earrings this past Memorial day weekend in the Sikara & Co.'s Boston Pop-up store on Newbury Street. The salesgirl was wearing them and I have been obsessing over them ever since. They are so simple and unique and elegant. They were available in the store in 3 different sizes and are available in silver brushed and non-brushed, and gold. My personal favorites are the large size in brushed silver.
