Fred Flare: Alice time piece watch necklace

Fred Flare's Alice time piece watch necklace was featured in the September Issue of Lucky Magazine. Fred Flare has a wide variety of items for sale making it a great place to shop for almost anything including inexpensive gag gifts and jewelry. I really like the vintage look of this watch necklace and the old-style clock hands and floral engraving. It is also very well priced at only $24 and is a very versatile piece making it an even better deal. You can preorder yours now and they are shipping 10/11.

eBay Finds: Double Peacock Jewelry box

New Art Nouveau Double Peacock Jewelry Box Figure Model
Current Price: Buy It Now $22.99
Shipping: $8.99
Time Left: 4 days 7 hours

I really like the peacock detailing on this jewelry box. It is also not so colorful that it will stand out in a room which is always a plus for someone like me whose interior decorating doesn't involve coordinating pieces.

Sarah Lewis: Geode Rings

I have never seen rings like these from Sarah Lewis. She uses a variety of materials from flowers, fossils, geodes, gold, gemstones and blown glass to make these extremely unique rings. I cannot pick a favorite, I love them all. If I could, I buy one of every single style she has available. I have only chosen pictures of a few of them, so be sure to check out her website and her Etsy shop to see the other absolutely amazing pieces she has and to order your favorite.

Anthropologie: Glinting Gravel Ring

I often check Anthropologie's website to see the new items on sale as I have a serious love for Anthropolgie's jewelry. I saw the Glinting Gravel Ring in the sale marked down from $58.00 to $29.95 and immediately sent it to my sister who I owed a late Christmas present. Needless to say the ring was ordered 5 minutes later in the Peach color and she received it in the mail last week. She says it is just as beautiful in person and has already received many compliments on it. Another great piece of jewelry from Anthropologie that is casual enough to dress up a t-shirt and jeans but beautiful enough for a special occasion.

Betsey Johnson: 2 Finger Snake Ring

I've always been a big fan of Betsey Johnson because of it's originality and sense of fun in the pieces. Betsey Johnson jewelry always stands out stores, it's colorful, fun and unique. I am still on the hunt for 2-finger rings and I really like this 2 Finger Snake Ring. It's so colorful and vibrant that it will definitely stand out. The snake is a commonly used animal in jewelry but Betsey Johnson really made this snake her own with the purple jewels going down it's back and turquoise tail. Another thing I have always liked about Betsey Johnson jewelry, is that it is an affordable designer jewelry line, this 2 Finger Snake Ring retails for $45.

SCOSHA & CO.: Friendship Bracelets

Daily Candy's New York Weekend Guide featured SCOSHA & CO.'s Friendship Bracelets. Throughout August since it's Friendship Month, with the purchase of a SCOSHA & CO. Friendship Bracelet, they will send an additional friendship bracelet to a friend of your choice residing in the U.S. for free. All proceeds from the sales of the friendship bracelets go to benefit the Art in All of Us organization. The Art in All of Us organization promotes global cultural exchange through art and creative activity programs. I like these bracelets because they are cute and because they benefit a good cause. I also like them because I'm sure like many of you, I have some people who are close to me who live across the country from me and these could be a good way to show them how much you appreciate their friendship.

locallibrary: Draping Drops Necklaces

"The perfect handmade jewelry for everyday" is locallibrary's shop tag line and I think it fits perfectly with the pieces she has for sale. I am crushing hard on the draping dots necklaces available in silver and gold. They can easily be worn from day to night, work to play, or wedding to picnic. They're simple enough to be layered but stylish enough to be worn alone. They're a great basic piece that would be an excellent addition to anyones jewelry collection and are very well priced at $40.

eBay Finds: Antique Big Chunky Micro Mosaic Vintage Ring

Current Price: $24.50
Shipping: $4.00
Time Left: 1 day 6 hours
This ring is so beautiful and big! I absolutely love the brass leaves on the sides and the beautiful mosaic floral arrangement. The colors of the floral arrangement really stand out against the black glass background. Be sure to read the description carefully before bidding, there is some very minor normal wear and tear and chipping on the mosaic. Who knows, you might end up bidding against me.

J. Crew: Crystal chain grosgrain bracelet

I absolutely love my J.Crew Abacus bracelet and always receive compliments when I wear it so I was very excited when I saw J.Crew's new jewelry arrivals. The Crystal chain grosgrain bracelets really stood out to me. The bracelets are made up of "mixed media" adornments that are hand sewn to two strips of rayon grosgrain. I really like the way the girliness of the silk bows contrasts with the tougheness of the chunky metal chains and how the sparkly stones add a touch of glamour. The bracelets are definitely suitable for day and evening wear.

House of Harlow 1960: Gold Peacock Feather-Enameled Locket Pendant

I was going through today's New York Magazines - the Cut's 23 Lustworthy Lockets Slideshow and wasn't surprised that one of my favorites is from Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 collection. I've always been a big fan of her collection and her style in general. I love the "peacock" inpsired details and colors. It is available here for pre-order and will ship at the end of August.

Anthropologie: Stepping Stone Necklace

I love short layered stone necklaces. It's amazing how much they can add to an outfit and are very comfortable to wear. I really like the Stepping Stone Necklace from Anthropologie because of the different colors and types of stones that it is designed with. The necklace seems very basic, 3 layers of stones, but once you start to look at the details and all the different colors and textures that it is made up on it takes on a personality all its own. Buyers tip, it is only available for purchase online.
