As you browse thru the pages and sites of the fashion world, you will be overwhelmed by bright clothes, pastels, florals, and neons. If you are looking for jewelry ideas for spring, here are some good pieces that will be very affordable for you:

Shawn Warren

Shawn Warren based in New York came up with wrap bracelets that you can get in neon colors. The bracelets coil around your wrist smoothly while the magnetic clasp will not cause any problem. The chunkier chains look better with more dramatic effect. Cheap yet classy, this is how I will describe these wrap bracelets.

Some of the choices include a wrap bracelet in blue leather with silver and gunmetal chain. The eye catching neon yellow version too also look great. You can get them for $275.

Shawn Warren also came up with a single band version that makes use of snap closure. This comes in blue, coral, and neon yellow leather and 2-tone metal. Each sells for $225


If you are looking for bracelets with that perfect spring vibe, BaubleBar is another site to visit. They made use of bright enamel and vibrant metals for their bracelets this season. Everything is bright at BaubleBar and they offer a ton of options over at their website.

They have this rope cuff with gold plated metal, lucile, and enamel. They also have a collaboration with DKNY producing three pieces of elegant bracelets for spring.

No Nos in Jewelry for Easter: 2


Now that we have talked a little bit about being classy and keeping up with some of the trends in the way of Easter jewelry.  One of the most important things that you want to keep in mind whenever you are dealing with jewelry for a specific holiday is the fact that you want to wear something that suits you.

A lot of people wash themselves out by wearing a lot of pastel colors; it is something that not a lot of people can pull off, so keep that in mind.  You also want to ensure that you incorporate silver of gold into your color scheme; you do not want to get something that is solid color.

These tips and tricks should help you in the long run from making a fashion no-no in the way of Easter jewelry.

Jewelry trends are something that are constantly updating and constantly changing, especially when you are looking for jewelry for a holiday.  There are rules though, rules that you need to follow whenever you are dealing with jewelry around the holidays, as some of the jewelry that is themed to the holiday can be terrible looking.

Gorgeous Vintage Jewelry from Heidi Daus

daus3Vintage jewelry is all the rage right now, whether it comes to rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, or earrings. And by all accounts — and as you can plainly see — few jewelry designers do it better than Heidi Daus, who has no less than twenty five years worth of experience behind her. Within her aesthetic, you can tell she loves both vintage jewelry and estate jewelry.

This particular piece is a bracelet featuring, as you can see, a knot. It is, in fact, the “Forget Me Knot” (get it?) Crystal Accented Bangle, measuring seven and a quarter inches. It features many rows of round, black, diamond color crystals in pave set.

It, like many of Heidi Daus’ other pieces, incorporate a kind of Art Deco style that speaks of both rampant sophistication and extreme edginess.

From Engagement Ring to Divorce Diamond

pejayb5605It has happened to all of us.  An ex boyfriend once bought us a promise ring which we can understandably no longer bring ourselves to wear.  Perhaps an engagement went downhill and you, of course, kept the ring, even though it is now languishing in the back of your drawer, unworn but not quite forgotten.  Worse yet, perhaps you have gone through the devastation that is a divorce, and have no idea what to do with the rings you once wore with pride.  You cannot bear to get rid of these rings, but neither do you want to wear them.  It seems like such a waste of diamonds and other precious stones though, does it not?  Until quite recently, your only real choices were to live with it or pawn them — and pawning is such a tough thing to do.  I mean, we are talking about diamonds here!

Fortunately, PeJay Creations has the answer to that problem.  Think about getting your old promise ring, engagement ring, or wedding ring into a divorce diamond.  It can become a hinged bracelet for some surprisingly affordable prices.

Charm Bracelets: They Are Definitely All The Fashion!

When it comes to fashion, it is pretty obvious that it is ever-changing and constantly updating.  One thing that I’ve noticed that is completely timeless is the charm bracelet.  Whether the charms are silver, gold or diamond, it doesn’t matter, the entire theme of the charm bracelet itself is so timeless and it will never change!  One of the coolest things I think about charm bracelets is building up all of the charms.

Remember when you were a child and you were given your very first charm bracelet and you were told that now you had to collect all of the charms to make the entire bracelet full?  Wasn’t that an exciting adventure?  You got to pick up charms from all sorts of places?  Well, I remember it and honestly, that was a brilliant idea and when I was a child it was so much fun!

Now, you are an adult and they have created charm bracelets for the kid inside of you!  Take a look at the picture, it is a charm bracelet just one all put together!
