Statement Jewelery - Charles Emerson
Now THAT is some bling!!
No... I didn't pull the trigger on the $125 Classic Pave Link Bracelet from Jcrew... despite the fact that I'd been lusting over it for the last year. This pave chain bracelet is a recent discovery from Charles Emerson Designs - a Virginia based jewelry designer that specializes in "flashy baubles" (their words, not mine).
Not only is this bracelet a dead ringer for the Jcrew piece, but it was less than half the cost! Including shipping! They were running a promotion at the time, but even without the discount, this bracelet is under $50. They have other fabulous pieces, but just had to brag a bit about my find :-)
Some of my other favorites...
I'm a huge fan of the statement necklace - throw on a button down, skinny jeans, and one of these guys, and you're ready for anything! I have some REALLY cheap ones from Forever 21 and H&M - they tend to break after a few wears, so keep that in mind...
I have a few pricier ones from Banana Republic, Jcrew, and Etsy - all of which I love - and based on all the compliments I've gotten on my bracelet so far, I have a feeling that I may own a few from Charles Emerson in the near future...
