5 Essentials For Your Jewelry Box

Precious International Anklet

When’s the last time you updated your jewelry collection? If you’re anything like most women, you probably haven’t added anything new in awhile, and every time you attend a semi-formal gathering you despair of your limited choices. The good news is that this state of inertia doesn’t have to last. If you’re ready to throw open your jewelry box and add something new, here are five pieces that will allow you to build great looks from the ground up.

1: Pearls

Nothing says sophistication like a classic string of pearls, but did you know these sparkling gems come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors? The traditional kind is the Akoya pearl, round and white, but South Sea pearls can be up to 22mm large, and Tahitian pearls can be everything from gold to green.

2: Diamonds

Diamonds are forever, but that doesn’t mean you should only buy one rock and call it a day. Diamond jewelry has grown throughout the years to include necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets, so give yourself a diamond for every appendage if you’d like to be prepared for every occasion.

3: Gold

If you don’t already have gold jewelry, then why not? You’re missing out on the richest and most luxurious kind of shine. Drape gold chains around your neck to make a statement at the opera; use gold bangles or anklets to add a bit of elegance to your wrists and anklets; attach a gold brooch to your blouse to draw every eye in the room.

4: Silver

One of the oldest materials in the natural world, silver has been a part of folklore since the days of werewolf hunting. It can sometimes and erroneously be seen as the “cheaper” cousin to gold, but the real fashionista has both. You never know when gold will be too gauche for a dinner party or casual occasion!

5: Precious Gems

Rubies are the gems of love and passion. Sapphires invoke the feeling of wealth and royalty. Even emeralds have become a billion-dollar business in recent years. If you’re looking for something new to add to your jewelry box, precious stones will give color and flair to any ensemble.

Whether you’re looking to find a keepsake or just upgrading your existing collection, these are five essentials for the modern day, fashion-forward jewelry shopper. While there are endless varieties out there, these are the absolute must-haves! Shop jewelers like Precious International to learn more.


Frugal Chic Jewelry Deals From SuperJeweler

SuperJeweler Turquoise Necklace

I’ve purchased several pieces of jewelry over the years from SuperJeweler because they have great stuff at fabulous prices so I was thrilled when they offered me this hand knotted turquoise beaded necklace for review. The necklace retails for $79.99 but the SuperJeweler price is $49.99, or you can grab it on sale right now for just $39.99.

The necklace is 18 inches in length with graduated turquoise beads and a lobster claw clasp. I am very pleased with the weight and feel of the piece and can’t wait to wear it again, next time with a cute red paisley shirt and denim skirt.

During the month of May you can take 10% off any order with the promo code SAVE10SJ. That’s a great deal, just in time for Mother’s Day! While you’re there you may want to sign up for their newsletter. I’ve been a subscriber to their emails for a long time and love to see their weekly $10 deals in my inbox, plus they always let me know about the currents sales and specials.

The best thing about SuperJeweler in my opinion is that you can get chic, high quality jewelry that doesn’t break the bank. You can also buy from them with confidence since all of their merchandise comes with an unconditional 60 day money back guarantee. Additionally, their jewelry is always in stock and ready to ship, plus every order ships for free.

5 Row Freshwater Pearl Necklace Reg $55 Now $10 Shipped!

I’m loving this gorgeous 17″ White Pink & Peach 5-9mm Genuine Freshwater Cultured Pearl 5-Row Necklace and it’s a steal at just $9.99 with free shipping! This necklace regularly retails for $55 and I have a similar one that has gray and black pearls that I get compliments on all the time so I’m pretty sure that I ‘need’ this one too. You can’t really see the strands when you’re wearing the necklace so the pearls appear as if they’re floating and it’s a really neat look. At this price, I think they’d also make a great gift for a friend!
