Brilliant Baubles

Jewelry, Shoes, Makeup, Fragrance- My Loves!

Shoe addict?  Check.  Makeup Addict?  Check.  Jewelry Addict?  Check.  
Who doesn't love the transformational power of jewelry?   Jewelry can elevate a mood, change the look of an outfit, bring forth wonderful memories...
I thought I would share some of my pieces.  I like to mix high-end with low-end, vintage with everyday costume pieces, stack rings and bracelets, mix silver and gold.  Jewelry Rules?  Not for me.  My goal is to just have fun.

One of my favorite rings below.  My beloved grandmother used to tell me that she picked me out of a rose garden in heaven when I was born.  Needless to say, I love "rose" items.

Here's a fun cocktail ring below that came with the Michael Kors Very Pretty fragrance set last year.  The fragrance solid is nestled inside the ring.

  2. Beautiful pieces.I love what your Grandmother used to tell you. xx


  3. My favourite pieces are probably any of the pieces that I took from my mom. She has a vintage Celine bracelet that I wear almost everyday. I love your set up! The name of the MK cocktail ring/fragrance is actually a description of you!

  4. Wow what lovely jewellery :)

    I love costume jewellery, doesn't need to be anything expensive for everyday or dressing up your party dress. I have some nice white gold jewellery my boyfriend bought me, but am always scared to wear it cos it was so expsensive, knowing me I'd lose it when I'm out.

    P.S. I love those stands, they are fab:)


  5. BeautybyPaula- thank you- I love what she used to tell me too!

    Elise- You are such a doll! I love my vintage pieces too- mostly from my grandma!

    Jo-Thanks so much- I love the stands too- they were gifts from 2 different people so I use one for silver and one for gold. I keep my real pieces in a separate box.

  6. I love mixing high end and low end as well...I have beautiful bracelets from St. Kitts. Very inexpensive but fabulous. I also have my eye on a Chan Luu. Would love to mix them up!
