A great pick would be this white topaz and black onyx sterling silver pendant. It’s also on sale – priced at just $47.50. This trendy over-sized pendant will help you shine at your next party or special occasion. Its bulky look makes a big impression and gives you that edge without having to take out a mortgage.

Goodness! This February sure has been a rough weather month for many parts of the country. You may very well be reading this today from the comfort of you home and enjoying a “snow day” from work. Considering all this cold weather, this Valentine’s Day you may be tempted to give one of those “blankets with sleeves” that strangely have sold like hotcakes this year. Well, save your money! Nothing warms the heart and soul like a thoughtful gift of jewelry for Valentine’s Day.

So, instead of frumpy lounge wear, get your sweetheart a gift from the heart. A red enamel heart pendant is just the thing. At just $50, it won’t break the bank either. The round cut diamond on this heart pendant add a special sparkle to any outfit.

The one thing Jewelry and the you-know-what have in common is that they’ll always be the right size (although it is possible that your lady may think the gemstones and diamonds should be bigger!) Do yourself a favor and cross the “will it fit” worries off your list. If your sweetheart has a more sophisticated style, take a look at this freshwater cultured pearl and carnelian bracelet. This chunky bracelet is perfect for daytime wear but will add a touch of sexy red to an evening ensemble too. Can we say “Date Night”?

For the ultimate red jewelry for Valentine’s Day, you have to go for rubies. Get in good with a gift of this ruby sterling silver heart pendant. With 20 bright red rubies, this pendant shows up a dozen red roses any day.

On the Street: Black and White

Black and White is a classic combination
Black and White is a classic combination
This week in our effort to bring you jewelry styles and trends we’ve spotted On the Street, we caught a few young ladies who were enjoying a night out on the town in style. The friend in the middle stepped out wearing the classic combination of black and white. This sophisticated combo is great for a formal event but can also be a good choice for trendy settings.

A great pairing for a black and white ensemble is a pearl necklace. Pearls make your outfit look more formal and are a great choice for the workplace. To mix it up a bit you can select a necklace with both black and white pearls like the lady pictured here. This is a great “going out” look and looks great with your little black dress. A third option is black and white diamonds. Those sparklers would really get you some attention!

No matter what jewelry you choose, the black and white combination is a classic that you’ll be able to wear year after year. The versatility of black and white jewelry make it a “must have” for any jewelry collection.

Accessorize like a star

Carrie Underwood always strikes the perfect balance on the red carpet.In the midst of award season, it’s difficult not to become a little bit jealous of all of the fabulous diamond jewelry that the stars get to borrow. However, if you’ve got ice fever, there are a few easy ways to steal some star style for your next shindig or big night out.

Balance is an important part of achieving a glamourous look, so make sure that you are discerning when picking out your pieces. If you have a gorgeous statement necklace, then keep your earrings and bracelets simple, but feel free to don a cocktail ring in a similar style.

If your earrings are truly attention-grabbing, it might be a good idea to skip a necklace all together. Pair large pendant earrings or glittering hoop earrings with a similar sparkling bracelet to keep your look proportionate and in balance.

Though platinum and silver have been the favorites of the red carpet set in recent years, gold jewelry has been a big trend this season. Pair a simple gold locket with gold bangle bracelets or hoop earrings for a classic but timely look.

Pile on the bling for a last-minute New Year’s Eve outfit

Diamond rings will add sparkle to any ensemble. If you still don’t know what you’re wearing for New Years Eve, now’s the time to panic. Now just take a deep breath and follow this simple advice.

Here’s what you’re going to do: Wear black and accessorize like there’s no tomorrow.

New Year’s Eve is all about sparkling outfits and glittering jewelry. If you have some bling and a basic black dress, you’re covered. (We promise.)

First, start out by putting on all of the diamonds you own: rings, earrings, and bracelets – whatever. If it has diamonds, put it on. Long pearl necklaces are also perfect, and can work to create a vintage flapper vibe that will cause people to think you worked hard to create.

Another way to look really jazzed-up is to curl your hair and throw on a wide, colorful headband. If you have any sparkling pins, snap them onto the band for some extra bling.

Now that you’re positively radiating light, you can comfortably step out in style and ring in the New Year! (Might we suggest that your New Year’s resolutions include planning ahead of time?)
