Affordable Luxury. Fine jewelry that you can afford!

23 Jul

When shopping for jewelry, two things catch my eye before anything else. Quality and price. Some quality pieces are unattainable, while some affordable pieces are lacking in quality. I’m so excited to share a jewelry company that offers affordable luxury. YES, you read that right. Ethically sourced gold, diamond and pearl jewelry that is fairly priced. Let me introduce you to AUrate .AUrate necklace

I have yet to see a company this transparent when it comes to pricing and the designs are so beautiful, you’re going to want everything.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know dainty jewelry is my thing.  The AUrate website is dainty jewelry heaven.  As if that wasn’t enough, with every purchase, AUrate donates a book to a child in need.

The pieces I’ve been obsessed with since they’ve arrived on my doorstep are the Stackable ring ($50) and the Diamond bezel ring. ($150) (pictured below)I’ve been wearing them together and can’t get enough! I’ve received so many compliments on them and I’ve only had them for a few days now.

Wear Your Memories With This Cool Bracelet!

19 Dec

I think I may have found the coolest bracelet EVER!  I have always loved industrial, yet feminine jewelry, so I was instantly smitten when I layed eyes on these.  Coordinates Collection bracelets and rings are great because they show the latitude and longitude of any place in the world that you choose. You can pick a place where you first met someone, went to school or had a life achievement i.e. graduation, baby, marriage etc.  That’s not all……on the inside,  you can get a special date engraved and a message as well. These are just so cool and I’m gonna be wearing mine all the time!!!!





Coordinates rings start at $130 and bracelets start at $204. The price depends on the style and the material. For example the plated bracelets start at a couple hundred dollars and the solid rose or yellow gold can set you back thousands of dollars. You can also add birthstones for a bit extra as well. The pieces are all unisex  and come in different sizes. Although they may be an investment piece, these wearable memories will be with you for a lifetime!


Not a ring person? How cute are these bracelets  instead of wedding rings?!!! Just a thought. Get all matchy matchy with your hubby or wife!

Beautiful Emerald Rings!

1 May

I just thought I’d let you all know what I’ve been looking at all day long on Pinterest. Big, beautiful Emerald rings!  I get on my kicks…..some days it’s a certain bag or pair of heels that I can’t get out of my head, but today it’s EMERALDS and only Emeralds!!!  Check out these beauties below.


Emerald Emerald2 I really appreciate the beauty of a natural Emerald, it’s my birthstone so I’ve had ample opportunity to get a ‘lab created’ emerald and although they provide much more sparkle than a natural Emerald, I’ve always loved the slightly flawed- almost dull look of a natural stone, just so pure and beautiful.emerald3

Rose Gold Love

16 Apr

I may be the biggest fan of rose gold on earth……. My very first diamond ring was a black hills gold ring for my 15th birthday. It was a yellow and rose gold setting with one teeny tiny diamond, I fell in love when I saw that ring. My mom opened up a can of worms with that one for sure. I have never stopped loving rose gold since that day. My wedding set is rose gold, so I’m committed for life. I have seen rose gold go in and out of style and it’s been back in style for a couple of years now and I am excited about it. I will be rocking the rose gold  even if it goes “out” of style again, hopefully it doesn’t. Anyways enough about my obsession and onto the facts!   Whether it is costume or the real deal, every woman should own at least one rose gold accessory.  Rose gold is versatile, classic, feminine and modern. It goes with yellow and silver metals and looks great on all skin tones. Here are some beautiful styles to shop.

Starting with my Favorite…. Zoe Chicco diamond and rose gold sideways set cross necklace($488) available at Zoe Chicco Available without diamonds as well. Diamond studs with rose gold detail($2,200) available at Bloomingdale’s. Rose gold tone hoop ($45) and square-shaped diamond accent ring($1,945) both available at Saks. Cluster gold tone ring($81.81) available at Asos. Watches ($250-$500) and textured rose gold tone bangle set($48) all available at Nordstrom. Set of five hammered stackable rose gold rings($329) available at Etsy,Scarlett jewelry. Cuff with pink quartz ($38) available at Etsy,Altana Marie. Heart earrings($24) available at Etsy,Burnish.

Must have a “boyfriend” watch

Can’t forget about Etsy!

Love these hearts!

My favorite rose gold pieces!

Large cream bangle with rose trim, rose metal bracelet and fitted cream cuff with rose toggle closure all available at H&M, Michael Kors watch available at Nordstrom and thin bangle set available at Aldo. I don’t recall exact prices but I do know the bracelets were ALL under $10 and they are in stores now.
