Whether black, white, crystal, or multi-colored, this season’s jewels are gems (no pun intended). There is a bevy of options out there from gemstone bangles to druzy necklaces to statement cocktail rings. I used to purchase almost all my jewelry from large department stores, however, would feel the jewelry were not necessarily special and unique. I’ve recently discovered some great finds from smaller establishments, particular Margaret Elizabeth, based out of San Francisco, and a-thread, an online boutique based out of Los Angeles, CA. I’ve featured products from both companies on the blog before and just really love their jewelry! Happy shopping!
