Fabulous Finds – Luxury Jewelry for Summer 2015
When it comes to shopping for luxury jewelry, it’s important to be able to define your personal signature style, as these items are best viewed as long-term investments (since they are often more expensive than fashion or costume jewelry). In addition, you’ll most likely hold onto fine jewelry for many years (if not decades), and can even pass these pieces down to future generations. For these reasons, it’s wise to take your time shopping for luxury jewelry, and to only buy the pieces you truly love.
Tips for Shopping for Luxury Jewelry
A few questions to ask yourself while shopping for luxury jewelry pieces are: Do you gravitate to heavy metals (like gold or platinum)? Do sparkly, diamond-encrusted pieces always catch your eye? Do you prefer classic, traditional designs or bold, modern statement pieces?
Burberry Watch ($595): A multi-link bracelet breathes new life into a signature three-hand analog watch boasting a hydraulic-stamped check pattern on the round face. A classic gold and silver design makes this menswear-inspired timepiece a versatile everyday accessory for any wardrobe.
Marco Bicego Bangle ($3,070): Colorful gemstones cap wavy threads of hand-engraved, 18-karat gold to form an open cuff with gorgeous sparkle. Perfect for dressing up any outfit (from casual attire to cocktail dresses), this unique multi-colored bangle easily accessorizes ensembles.
Lana Jewelry Hoop Earrings ($3,955): Breathtaking diamonds illuminate a pair of gorgeous hoop earrings handcrafted from solid 14-karat yellow gold. These simple, yet striking, pair of earrings are suitable for both daytime and evening occasions. A timeless hoop design is off-set by glittering diamonds and a high-shine gold finish.
