In Like a Lion

Black Diamond Sterling Silver Aries Pendant
Black Diamond Sterling Silver Aries Pendant
Do you know the origin of the weather proverb about March, “in like a lion, out like a lamb”? For most locations in the northern hemisphere, the average temperature at the end of the month is higher than at the beginning (more gentle than the biting, fierce winter), so the proverb typically has some meteorological truth to it. But where did it come from?

The phrase apparently has its origins with the constellations Leo, the Lion, and Aries, the ram or lamb. It has to do with the relative positions of these constellations in the sky at the beginning and end of the month.

Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in the constellation Aries roughly from March 21 to April 19, by definition beginning at vernal equinox or the first day of spring.

If someone in your life has a birthday between March 21 and April 19, you should consider a zodiac glyph pendant as a unique and memorable birthday gift. The black diamond sterling silver Aries pendant pictured here is beautifully rendered in brushed and polished sterling silver and highlighted with dazzling enhanced black diamonds. It is truly budget friendly at only $125.

If black diamonds are too racy for you, consider this Aries pendant delicately cut out of a brushed sterling silver disc and with a single accent diamond for just a touch of sparkle. A zodiac pendant is a thoughtful keepsake she is sure to love.

Great jewelry is the key to looking and feeling great this spring!

A single bracelet goes a long wayHoping to stand out a little when the spring weather hits? Believe it or not, there’s more to looking hot than picking all the right clothes. What good will a beautiful, sexy black pencil skirt do for you if it’s paired with hum-drum jewelry?

This season, the secret to appearing like you spent hours getting ready will begin with three little words: jewelry, jewelry, jewelry.

One of the most time-efficient ways to look completely glamorous is to don a statement necklace or bold earrings, no matter what time of day it is. If you’re headed to work, try a casual silver chain with a heart-shaped pendant. For nighttime, make sure that your earrings sparkle.

Also, don’t forget about the magic of a reliably sexy set of bangle bracelets. Even during daytime hours, a little jangle on your wrists can lift your spirits almost as much as the warm weather.

Of course, a watch is a dramatic addition to any spring wardrobe. Match a plain-Jane black shirt with a shimmery watch and you’re golden!

Whatever you decide, make sure that your accessories are comfortable to wear. Fashion does not need to be painful!

Old-school pins add modern touch

Pins and brooches will give new life to your wardrobe. When a lot of girls think about pins, they think about chunky hunks of metal that their grandmothers used to keep a scarf closed. However, pins and clips are experiencing a revival. A sparkling silver brooch or cameo might be just the accent that you need to take your look from cool to cutting edge.

First of all, we recommend that you ransack the jewelry boxes of all of your older relatives to see if they have any gorgeous items that are just collecting dust. If they’ll let you at them, grab any colorful or shiny pieces that catch your eye. This will give you a solid pin collection.

Next, go shopping and keep your eyes peeled for a pin in your signature color or with a unique design or stone. We love opals because they’re the chameleons of the jewelry world. The iridescent stone will reflect whatever colors you’re wearing and catch the light with a subtle shimmer.

Okay, now that you have some killer pins, you might be wondering: How do you wear them? However you want! Pin a fancy bauble onto the lapel of your favorite denim jacket for an unexpected twist on casual wear, or slip a small, sparkling pin onto your headband or scarf before heading out for the night.
