Chanel, Chopard, Bulgari, Lorraine Schwartz, Tiffany & Co. — do I have your attention? If I don't, Julianne's Bulgari emerald drop earrings will entice you. Nothing elevates a gorgeous gown like diamonds, sapphires, and platinum. Here are the most lavish jewels from this year's Golden Globes. Earrings were the adornment of choice, while brooches and bracelets captivated, too. Get ready to get stunned.
As if a 3-D Tum Burton-ified Alice in Wonderland weren't exciting enough, Stella McCartney has also fallen down the rabbit hole. Stella teamed up with Disney on a limited-edition costume jewelry necklace and bracelet in anticipation of the March 5 movie release. The jewels feature Plexiglas and Swarovski crystal charms, including a rabbit, the Mad Hatter’s hat, a pearl, and spade, club, heart, and diamond shapes. These are for true AIW fans; the necklace ($425) and bracelet ($395) won't come cheap and will be sold at Stella McCartney stores worldwide beginning next month.
One of the sweetest gifts a newborn can receive is her first piece of jewelry. Depending on the size and the durability, it can also be one of the most dangerous presents. Stud earrings seem harmless, as do anklets, but necklaces can be a choking hazard. Trendtotter Honor Warren knows how to accessorize, and yesterday was no different. The precious babe was spotted wearing a silver bangle on her wrist while mama Jessica Alba toted her on her hip.
Many parents purchase or accept the pretty pieces and put them away in jewelry boxes for safe keeping and later usage. Do you allow your tot to wear jewelry?
I frequent many eBay stores, but I think I just found my absolute favorite. Bridget378's boutique stocks the latest CC Skye pieces for way less. And I mean way. I was about to buy the CC Skye Horizontal Spear Ring ($150) from my most wanted when I stopped to do a quick eBay search. That's when I discovered the treasure. With shipping, I got the ring for $20! Add this store to your favorites and check back often for new and affordable CC Skye goodies.
Studs, spikes, feathers, and chains are popping up everywhere in jewelry these days. From earrings to necklaces, on cuffs and rings, jewelry designers are feeling a bit more rock & roll than sweet & prim. I personally love my jewelry to be loud, bold, and with a little edge.
If you pop into any store, mass or boutique, you'll see tops with ornate details on the shoulders (even Forever 21 has them). A brand called Babette Epaulette has taken the detailed shoulder to the next level by creating jewelry specifically designed to be worn on your shoulder.
While I love the idea in theory, I'm not sure the cross-body style would be flattering on anyone other than a twig. The pieces are beautiful and definitely make a statement, but what I want to know is: Would you wear it?
Last night's People's Choice Awards was a whirlwind of slick style. Of course, the frocks took center stage — we loved Carrie Underwood's avant-garde style and couldn't stop lusting over Diane Kruger's sexy LWD — but did you peep all of the bodacious baubles, footwear, and clutches? Divine. Take my quiz to see if you can match the cutie by her Fab accessory!
Remember when Rihanna wore this floating double ring while in Berlin? I do, and I haven't been able to take my mind off it since. We found out it's from Skinny and retails at a mere $38 — sweet! The ring, which also comes in a ton of different colors, is back-ordered for couple of weeks, but well worth the wait if you ask me.
Jewels' adornments have an especially unique story. Born the daughter of an Air Force pilot, Jewels grew up traveling the world with her parents. As a young girl, she was attracted to exotic jewelry bazaars located in North African cities such as Tunis and Tangier. Fast-forward 25 years, and her affection has turned into a bustling jewelry business boasting clients like Sheryl Crow, Orlando Bloom, and Patricia Arquette.
Using antique amber, coral, shells, turquoise, gold, North African silver, and coins — most of which are more than 100 years old — Jewels has created a collection filled with modern touches. We're currently lusting over these oversize African bezeled rings. Prices aren't cheap — pieces range from $150 to $2,500 — but you're buying a piece of history.

While the majority vote went to Lorraine Schwartz, we had to show love to Dannijo's Danielle and Jodie Snyder. The sisters stole our hearts this year with their drippy chains, mixed metals, and funky under-the-sea aesthetic. Celebs are also smitten with their rockin' jewels: Beyonce, Sophia Bush, and Natalie Portman were all spotted donning Dannijo this year. Check out how this spiked silver masterpiece completed Lake Bell's LBD ensemble — sizzle. Oh, and the best part? With price points starting under $100, everyone can enjoy their delicious baubles. Hip, hip, hooray!
