One of the first things I saw was this stunning Bougainvillea clutch. I love the intricate beading and unique shape! I’m not sure if this is a particular style, but I’m calling it an “art deco” clutch. Also the basic colors make this bag suitable for almost any ensemble.
The next items I went on the hunt for were cocktails rings. I walked away with three very beautiful and very different styles.
I’m not sure what the purple stone is, but I really liked the simple shape. It’s the color that makes it a stand out piece. It’s very feminine and fun. I find this stone to be almost…calming.
What I loved about this ring was that it was ultra-feminine. Small and dainty, this style shines because of the pop of color! It’s a beautiful pale pink that would look great against any skin tone. I wouldn’t really call it a cocktail ring due to its small size, but I would certainly want to wear this ring out and about (and I will!).
Now here’s my show stopper! This is a ginormous, spectacular statement piece. It is the epitome of a glamorous, cocktail ring. The gold body has a “twisted rope” and heart design on the sides, which cradles the substantial smoky quartz, measuring almost a full inch across.
What I really loved about this ring was its regal quality. It’s not for the faint of heart, or those with subtle tastes. And I almost lost it when I set it down for one second and another fashionista scooped it up! She decided it wasn’t for her, and it was then that I decided it was going home with moi. Because the stone is brown, it will also enhance many different ensembles.
So that’s it for me! I may have only brought home four items, but it’s quality over quantity. These were definitely quality pieces that I’m going to be able to wear for a long, long time.
