I love DANNIJO jewelry. There, I’ve said it. I. Love. It. Take a look at the Winslet Necklace above for a peek at why DANNIJO describes their jewelry as “inspired by the sophistication of Audrey Hepburn and the sweetness of Marilyn Monroe.” The silver oxide metal is perfectly tarnished (on purpose of course) to keep the piece from looking too cutesy and to balance the insane amount of sparkle from the Swarovski crystals. At 20″ long and a 5″ fringed pendant, this necklace will cascade beautifully down the chest. It’s a definite power-statement find, so I would wear it over a solid color with small earrings to truly showcase this piece. The $500+ price may be hard to swing for many, but if you have the means, get this necklace now before it is sold out.
Yes! Get it while you can: The DANNIJO Winslet Necklace is available at Shopbop.com ($524). Only 1 left in stock at shopbop! [Try Net-a-Porter if shopbop sells out.]
Bling on a Budget:
While it’s not as long, the general shape and amount of sparkle of Crystal Glam Necklace is reminiscent of the Winslet. It’s available at White House | Black Market ($68).
Bonus: Right now, you can buy 1, get 1 piece of jewelry for 25% off at White House | Black Market.
Shannon and I love introducing people to the world of bling and hearing about sparkly finds from other bling-lovers. I’ve been bonding with my friend Kristin Crocker this week on bling, and she sent me a list of her faves from Anthropologie.com. I love that one of her faves is on my list too! We both have been admiring the Captured Gems Bracelet made of 2″ metal mesh covered with dangling clear, copper and black diamond colored Swarovski crystals. At 6.75″ long, it’s too small for my wrist, so I’ll just keep visiting it online. Besides, the $178 price-tag (presumably because it’s handmade) means this baby couldn’t be an impulse buy anyway.
Massive impact for dainty-sized wrists but costs a pretty penny: The Captured Gems Bracelet is available at Anthropologie ($178).
Bling on a Budget:
For the same concept but with pearls and crystals, see the J.Crew Luxe cocktail bracelet ($98).
Prefer less sparkle? You may like the Chico’s Tilly bracelet ($38) made of chains with one row of crystals.
UPDATE 7/31/2010: White House | Black Market just came out with a Crystal/Rhinestone Bracelet that very similar to the Anthropologie bracelet except the crystals are all clear. Available at White House | Black Market ($98).
