Jewels Du Jour

I’ve mentioned I work for a jewelry company, yes? So basically part of my job is scoping out a lot of competitor jewelry. It’s a beautiful thing to be paid for, and also a horrible thing because I see so much pretty stuff that I want. Anyway, I stumbled across these little vintage-inspired gems in my internet job travels the other day, and I had to have them. Boss walking by be damned, I got on my phone and ordered them right then and there.

Cue the choir of angels singing for my new BaubleBar Juniper Ear Jacketsbaublebarjuniperearjacketsvintagejewelry

They don’t look nearly so ethereal in the merch shot online (see left), but I’m sooooo very pleased with how they look in person – they’re even better than I imagined. I think we’ve found my new staple piece!

P.S. – google some online codes before you go buy, I almost always find useable BaubleBar coupons! I got $10 off these babies with a RetailMeNot code, bringing them down to an extremely reasonable $22.

Inside My Jewelry Box: My Favorite Pieces of the Moment

Welcome to another episode of Hoarders!

White over the door jewelry armoire from Amazon. In case you were wondering, the Pat the Bunny book is an old childhood Christmas ornament I want to keep safe, so it keeps my jewelry company.

J/K, welcome to my jewelry box. And by jewelry box I mean human-sized over the door jewelry armoire.

I can feel you judging. I’d just like to preface this by saying that when not writing here, I work for a jewelry company and I get a discount. “But Savannah,” you say, “What about all the jewelry that didn’t come from there?” and I’d say “Hush it, remember the talk about judging?”

You’ll notice a couple of large themes in this armoire:

Theme 1: Pearls. Because, hello, pearls. They are my love, my life, my jewelry staple and whatever other earrings I show you here, just know that my classic white pearl buttons are what I wear probably 70% of the time.

Theme 2: Druzy. I’ve gotten majorly into the druzy. I feel like it’s totally at odds with the preppy pearls, but if not wearing pearls, I’m probably wearing druzy.

Theme 3: I have more earrings and rings than any person could ever wear. I know this. I choose not to act upon it, because I luff them.

Now, because it would take years to write a blog about every single piece in here, I’m just going to show you my favorites.

Let’s start with the earrings, because earrings and rings are my top two priorities when it comes to jewels.

And now for bracelets, which I have been getting into a lot more lately:

Cuff bracelets with quotes. “We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one.” – Dr. Who from My Sunny Shop on Etsy. “I am no bird; and no net ensares me.” – Jane Eyre from Berkey Designs on Etsy.

And finally, necklaces. Despite the amount of them in my jewelry box, I really don’t wear them that often, but I have been absolutely loving these two I just got from ElisabethAshlie on Etsy – especially layered together:

ElisabethAshlieNecklaces

The Amy necklace and the Michal necklace from ElisabethAshlie on Etsy.

You may have noticed that I get a fair bit of my jewelry from Etsy and various vintage shops or estate sales. I love going that route, because my pieces are often quite different from anyone else. I must also say, if you like what you see you’ve got to visit the aforementioned Dotted Poppy and ElisabethAshlie. ElisabethAshlie is actually run by Lauren from The Lauren Elisabeth Blog. Her and her sister Kate from The Small Things Blog are my favorites when it comes to fashion, so duh I will buy whatever she makes – there’s a lot more of her creations in my armoire. The Dotted Poppy is actually Lauren and Kate’s mom, and the stuff is equally as cute.

So what do you think? Anything else you like to see up close?
