Spotted: Bow Necklace on 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. Read More

Sparkle like Cameron Diaz

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. Read More

Spotted: Hilary Duff’s ‘Gladiator-Inspired’ Bib Necklace

We were first introduced to Hilary Duff's gorgeous golden bib necklace during Cartier's Love Charity Bracelet launch party, back in June.  She has been seen wearing it out to dinner with boyfriend Mike Comrie since then, everytime looking great.  This type of necklace is so chic, it could be worn to a red carpet event or even to dinner, as Hilary Duff has.  I wanted to find some similar ones so that anyone else who loves this look, as I do, can wear almost an identical necklace. This necklace is of the Victorian era, most likely Europe. It is 18k gold and has an intricate scallop design. It can be purchased at Adin for $1142. The design on this bib necklace is most similar to Hilary Duff's. The pointy look is so delicate, yet so fierce. A combination of white and yellow gold is used in this particular necklace. This necklace is also from Adin, for $1140. And the last necklace I found is very bold, has more gold weight and more expensive. Sure is stunning though! The scallop design has half sun/flower shapes from the Art Deco era. Also from Adin and priced at $1477. Read More

Lindsay Lohan’s “Engagement” Ring

Putting all the rumors and trash talk aside, Lindsay Lohan has been sporting quite a beautiful ring. And oddly enough, which finger does she choose to wear it on? Yes, her ring finger! And of all shapes and sizes it could possibly be, it is, but of course, a diamond pave heart. While gossip bloggers are speculating its an engagement ring from Samantha Ronson, others are saying that Lindsay herself bought it just because. I guess only time will tell. Below are some similar heart pieces of jewelry, in case you want to emmulate the fashionista herself. I found a gorgeous ring, pin, and pendant which all have that pave diamond look. This ring is very similar, and it also has an added ruby right in the center. Each diamond is impecably set, featuring 67 rose cut diamonds and one oval cut ruby. The shank is done in gold, while the top is set in platinum. From Lang Antiques & Estate Jewelry, for a price of $7750. If you would rather have Lindsay's heart ring in a necklace, than this is as close as you'll get! So pretty with 42 round diamonds, totaling 1.2 carats. It is 16 inches long and set in platinum. From Lang Antique & Estate Jewelry, for a price of $2850. Such a cute little pave diamond pin! This little pin packs a mean carat weight in diamonds--5 carats! It would look great pinned to a trendy scarf. There are 79 old mine-cut diamonds in this platinum and gold vintage pin, from the late 19th century. Comes with a hefty pricetag of $17,750 something Lindsay could afford, right? It would go great with her ring! Read More

Miley’s Sweet Sixteen: My Proposed Gift List

Sweet Sixteens only come, well, once in a lifetime--so you better make your wish list count!  Miley Cyrus' sweet sixteen will soon be upon us (November 23), and the whole world will be watching.  Let's hope she is more grateful than those bratty girls on MTv's Sweet Sixteen tv show.  And it seems that may be so... Miley's birthday party will be held at DisneyLand, where she will have the whole place to herself and her birthday "guests."  Anyone who purchases a $250 ticket will be an official partygoer.  So not only is she sharing her fun-filled day with complete strangers, but all of the proceeds will benefit a charity.  Seems like Miley has a good-heart and is not a greedy birthday girl.  But, of course anyone who is anyone needs at least one present on his or her birthday.  So I've devised my own list of potential birthday presents.  Some sort of jewelry item has got to be on her wish list!  Maybe she will choose one of these great finds!  Enjoy! This heart necklace is dainty and cute, while still having a "grown-up" side to it. The purple amethyst is encased in 14k gold filigree, with a magnificent detail on the back. Designed by Becky Kelso and priced at $763, I could see Miley rocking out with this on. www.ElizaPage.com Miley is not one to obstain from the multiple bracelet trend. She's been seen wearing plenty of bracelets--on both wrists! I think this vintage diamond bangle would really add some elegance and edge to what she normally wears. And besides, the older you get, the wiser you get--why not opt for diamonds and gold, while other teenie boppers are wearing plastic bangles? This one is $550 from Fay Cullen. And lastly, Miley needs something extremely unique for any red carpet event. This ring will get heads turning! It is a purple sapphire (very rare) surrounded by champagne diamonds, set at an angle. Something so slight, like angles, will turn any ring into a piece of artwork. This unique ring is designed by Fatima Maria, and can be purchased for $2570 at Twist. Well, there you have some great gift ideas for Miley's sweet sixteen. Any of these are worthy and might very well be unwrapped come November 23.  Did you receive any memorable piece of jewelry for your sweet sixteen? Read More
