On a recent trip to the fab Swag jewelry store in NorthPark Center, we happened upon the heavenly Tribal Crystal Milagro Pendant ($295) & Tribal Bicone Necklace ($317) by Virgins, Saints, & Angels. These necklaces are amazing on their own, but they are a real show-stopper when stacked together.
The delicate strands of black diamond crystals on the Tribal Bicone Necklace provide a lovely backdrop for the large Tribal Crystal Milagro Pendant. Not only is the large scale of the black diamond crystal pendant impressive, but we were mesmerized by the unusual cushion cut of the center stone and the blessed Vatican coins that dangle from the bottom of the pendant. I am envisioning wearing these beautiful, hand-crafted pieces with–everything!
The beauty of these objets d’envy is they are special enough to accompany a cocktail dress, or you can wear them every day for a chic sense of spirituality. Purchase these two dazzlers as-is, or customize your own piece with choice of medallions, finish, crystal colors, and more. Contact owner Lisa Alfieri at the Dallas location of Swag 214-691-0123. Pieces are also available online at www.lovemyswag.com.
Are you into bling like I am (and who isn’t, really?) and want to be about 6 inches taller (who wouldn’t like that, except maybe Serena Williams, who does wear glam high heels)… then take a look at this showstopper pump by Gianmarco Lorenzi. I first spotted this designer on a trip to Vegas this past spring and was delighted to add another blingy shoe designer to my growing list of favorites, including the ubiquitous Christian Louboutin, Massimo Dogana, and ZiGiny.
Gianmarco Lorenzi Disco Ball crystal-covered limited edition shoes
This pair – appropriately named “Disco Ball” – is a work of art and only 178 have been made. These shoes are completely covered in crystals, not rhinestones, from the toe to the bling-encrusted heel. In person, the crystals appear to be applied in an ombré effect with golden crystals beginning at the toe, mixing with clear crystals along the instep, and then blending into clear crystals at the heel. The other standout feature (do we need another one? Yes!) is the metallic gold trim around the entire bottom of the shoe, including the double platform which is also covered in small clear and golden crystals. No blingy detail was overlooked.
Khloe Kardashian Odom wore these shoes on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno back in May, and Mary J. Blige wore them to the 2011 Billboard awards. For $2795, you too can own a pair of these limited edition beauties to strut around in. Contact Gregory’s in NorthPark Center at 972-490-1285 to pick up pair 172 (out of 178 produced). They are also available online.
