Earring Jackets

Earring Jackets

For our very first blog ever… what exactly are Earring Jackets?

Earring jackets give new life to your favorite studs!  Go ahead, take them out out of your jewelry box, and show them off in style!  Add a pair of hoops, or silver dangles.  You’ll be surprised the compliments you get!

How do jackets work?  Take your favorite pair of gold, gemstone, pearl or diamond studs, put them through the loop at the top, then put the back on.  And tada… NEW look you’ll love!

Fall Fave… Jewelry Trends

From big cozy sweaters to hot cups of coffee, regular or pumpkin spice, there is something about the leaves changing across the United States, and the temperatures dropping, that is just warm and comforting.  Yellow and rose gold seem to compliment any Fall wardrobe.

Adding hoops to your layered look is stylish way to dress up darker colors.  Yellow gold makes anything pop, rose and white gold earrings bring out the warmth in even the deepest of hues. Whether you wear your hair short or long, up or down, hoops work with anything.

Excuse the pun, but this jewelry is heart-warming!  Worn choker length, or from an extra long chain, so it can hang beneath your scarf or over your trendy new poncho, there is just something sweet about a heart pendant. In hammered gold, or featuring a fancy design, we love these!

There is something magical about the gentle sound a gold charm bracelet makes when you pull it out of your jewelry box and put it around your wrist. The charms hold memories, and family stories, tales of adventure and love.  They bring back moments in time we never want to forget.   From custom trains featuring diamonds to adorable gingerbread houses stirring up childhood holiday dreams, we have one of the largest selections of 14k gold and sterling silver charms online.  In different sizes and price ranges, these are perfect gifts for anyone of any age.

 

Did we mention, we are crazy for charms here??? So many to share, so many we love… hard to pick a few to showcase.  So how about some of our recent additions? We just made this Eiffel Tower with rubies and sapphires, a viking ship with diamonds, we love the gumball machine and of course this wise old owl.  Browse our catalog, find your favorites.   Or maybe your favorite piece is based on your life’s philosophy:  “dance like no one is watching.”

Teal Jewelry Raises Awareness for Ovarian Cancer

September is Month. Teal is the color used to raise awareness and show support for those battling this disease or impacted by it. Strides have been made in raising awareness, but much more can be done.  We encourage everyone to wear teal ribbons in the month of September.    From charms and pendants to commemorate remission anniversaries to pins reminding us how vulnerable we all are, whether you choose a fabric ribbon, or a more permanent one in silver or gold, the first step in battling disease is awareness and education.  Spread the word, encourage education, learn about HPV vaccines for your children and celebrate life, each and every day.
