My favorite pieces of jewelry are the ones that I inherited from my late grandmother, Lina.  This vintage costume jewelry is made even more beautiful by the meaningful memories behind them.  These pieces are both big & bold, classic & timeless.

My grandmother had a great sense of style to go along with her even greater sense of humor.  Her big personality showed through in the unique and bold way she accessorized her designer outfits…This is Lina in a sleek, elegant dress worn with over-sized attention-grabbing earrings.  Perfection!

If I am on the hunt for a new piece of statement jewelry, I look to J.Crew (I know- sounds strange coming from such a classic, conservative retailer, but they have an amazing new line of jewelry), BaubleBar, and Artisan Center.

J.Crew Crystal Compilation Necklace $165.00

J.Crew Crystal Floral Statement Necklace $168.00

BaubleBar Ice Istanbul Bib Neclace $56.00

BaubleBar Victoria Marquise Bib Necklace $48.00

Finally, two of my favorite jewelry designers are Los Angeles based Irene Neuwirth and New York City based Pamela Love.  Irene designs big, bold playful pieces and has a cult-like following.  Pamela is the ultimate hippy chick and adds a touch of rocker-chic to her designs.

I personally love to embellish my daily uniform of a t-shirt and jeans with a statement piece of jewelry.  It keeps my look fresh and casual-chic.

I would love to hear where you like to shop for all of your beautiful baubles!
