[10.13.08] Columbus Day [Monday]

Happy Columbus Day! Hopefully this holiday was spent relaxing with a day off from work...lucky you! Doesn't this necklace capture the essence of Columbus' journey? I couldn't imagine setting up shop on a huge boat, and sailing into the "unknown." That should be one thing that we remember on this day--giving credit to the enormous amount of bravery all those voyagers displayed during the Age of Exploration.

Spotted: Bow Necklace on 90210

90210

Last week's episode of 90210 had Annie Wilson (Shenae Grimes) wearing an elegant bow necklace featuring diamonds. Although you can't really see the necklace in the above picture, it went really well with the plaid button-up she was wearing. 90210 continues to showcase the latest trends in fashion and jewelry...so keep watching and spotting those trends you love! Check out the bow necklaces below to own your very own!

This one is vintage and flaunts 1.3 carats of diamonds. Done up in 14k yellow gold with a 16 inch integrated chain. From the Victorian Era, when bows were very popular to be featured in jewelry, especially necklaces. You can find it on Fay Cullen for $1200.

If you are looking for a brand new bow necklace rather than vintage, try this one! It is from Ross-Simons and is 18k white gold. The diamond weight on this piece is .20, so a big difference compared to the first. The price is $428 and the necklace can extend from 18 inches to 20 inches.

Another brand new bow necklace from Ross-Simons is this one, and it is two times the glitter. Not only does it have two extra tiny bows besides the main bow, it has two chains instead of one! Definitely more fancy and bold than the other bow necklaces above. Diamond weight is .45 and the pricetag is around $876.

Style Inspiration: Huge Diamond Necklace

10-11-2008 08;22;32PM

Not only is the outfit in the photo above pretty insane, but the huge diamond necklace just tops it off perfectly. One would think that such a large necklace like that should be styled with a simple outfit, and no other accessories. However, just the opposite works extremely well as you can see. A huge diamond necklace like that is, of course, very pricey. We can all dream though...so I found a great lookalike at Fay Cullen worth $15000! The carat weight in total is 22.68!

Sparkle like Cameron Diaz

81001A1_DIAZ_C_B-GR_11


Cameron Diaz shined at a recent event...look at her beautiful jewelry choices! I love how she wore two very large rings on one finger. It is unexpected and shows what a trendsetter she is. I've scoped out the most similar jewelry lookalikes so that even you can shine like Cameron. Check them out!

We will start with the gorgeous, large gold flower ring. The one Cameron is wearing resembles a Hawaiian Hibiscus flower, like the one above. And since we all know she loves Hawaii and surfing, it may very well be! This ring is 14k yellow gold and is $269, from Hawaii City--which specializes in Hawaiian jewelry.

The second ring on Cameron's finger is a large, yellow gold ring with a white stone. I am thinking the stone is mother-of-pearl. I found this button pearl ring by Gabrielle Sanchez--button pearls are flatter than a normal pearl. This one is done in 18k yellow gold and is $1100. It can be purchased at Joseph's boutique.

A diamond encrusted horseshoe necklace is great for any occasion, and Cameron's finishes off her jewelry ensemble. The one above is from Heavenly Treasures and is .36 carats. This particular one is great because you can choose 16 inch, 18 inch, or 20 inch chain, as well as white or yellow gold. Prices range from $698-745.

Holiday catalogs are already circulating and Ross-Simons is not skimping on all the goodies this year! So many great choices in the holiday preview, whether you want gold, diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, or rubies under your tree. I have a few favorites of my own...they are shown below. If you are a fan of Ross-Simons, let me know about your shopping experience and your jewelry purchases. Do you have any holiday favorites?

Anything personalized makes a great holiday gift, and since monograms and name plates are very trendy, these make the perfect pair of earrings. They are done in 14k yellow gold. Pricetag is $315, but sales do run often, so be on the lookout.

Snake rings are necessary. This is probably the cutest one out there right now. I bought a snake ring on eBay and was very disappointed and returned it. It was so huge, it scaled down to my knuckle and up half my finger. This one looks like it would fit perfectly, while continually being timeless. This one is priced at $236 and is 14k white gold and diamonds.

Don't these earrings look like they are vintage, art deco? They are actually not vintage, but they have a great vintage style to them. Onyx, coral and diamonds combined with white gold make these new earrings seem like a peek into the past. They dangle 1.75 inches and are priced at $175.

Will you find any of these under your tree this year?
