Almost 6 months ago I embarked on setting up a fashion jewelry online store. It was (still is) a daunting undertaking. Six months and one pandemic in, I have found major efficiencies in my own process! Plus, I am slowing down from 16-hour days to 12! 😝
One of my most favorite tasks is choosing products! Many have come and gone for one reason or other and some have quickly become fan favorites. That has led to one of the most asked questions here;
‘which is my favorite products?’
I thought I would finally answer that question. Disclaimer: I don’t have 1 singular item but rather a few. Therefore, I am cheating by putting them into separate categories and then highlighting my favorite one in each. 😏 (Pretty slick, huh)
I love bracelets. No, I mean I looooove them; all kinds! I am especially enamored with bangle bracelets and mixing colors and metals. In this category, my favorite one is hands down the 18K Gold Plated Bangle Bracelet Set . I have both sets (gold and silver). I wear the gold set with other bangle bracelets to create a layered bracelet look. To add some color, I will add combine a few rope and beaded bracelets too. The best part about bracelets is they can be dressed up or dressed down. They are a fun easy accessory that pretty much match anything you are wearing. Customers absolutely love them too!
Style hack: I have worn the chain bracelet with circles as an anklet 😉
I have always loved drop earrings. Growing up, I was told they were only to be worn for “special occasions”. Luckily that fashion rule is no longer true. There are actually three that I love in this category but if I had to pick just one it would be the Drop Heart Earrings. Yes, they are bold! But have you met me? 🤣 I mean I am no wall flower so why should my earrings be? They are perfect with any style. In the Fall, I will pair these gorgeous drop earrings with a black turtleneck and my hair up. Kinda sexy don’t you think? 🤷♀️
Huggie Earring/Hoop Earring
I do categorize Huggie Earrings and Hoop Earrings separately. In this category, hands down my favorite item is the Huggie Earring Set. First of all, the set comes with five different earrings! Now that I have multiple ear piercings, this set takes the headache out of coordinating my ears! They are so simple and easy. I have both the clear CZ and the multi color CZ sets. They have become my daily go to set of earrings. The quality is incredibly, just enough heft without weight (if that makes sense). If I were to recommend one item to anyone it would 100% be the Huggie Earring Set.
Now this is a trend I have always loved but never felt “fashion brave enough” to wear. Then I met our Layered Choker Necklace. Why this one? I have always loved combining gold chains and pearls, medals etc. As a matter of fact, I own several individual necklaces that fit this bill. The problem was always trying to layer them together. The necklaces were not the right lengths to combine and wear as a layered look. This necklace has all the elements I love at the right lengths and literally matches everything. If you are looking for a go-to layered necklace, the Layered Choker Necklace is it.
Believe it or not, I have never actually owned many personalized or custom jewelry items except for a charm my grandparents had made for me when I graduated HS many moons ago. It is inscribed with my initials on front and graduation date on back. I still have it, on a chain as a necklace. However, I am madly in love with our Custom Whip Chain Necklace . I had one made for my daughter and I immediately was green with envy when hers arrived so I ordered one for myself. Yup, monkey see, monkey do. And based on customer response, I am not alone with this obsession. Could it be the Custom Whip Chain Necklace reminds us of our inner 80’s child? Or our love of the 90’s Fashion “It Girl” Carrie Bradshaw? Maybe it’s a little of both. Either way, it has unleashed the Personalized Jewelry monster in me, so I have the hoop earrings too. The plus side is, if I ever get amnesia, at least I know my name!
So that is my answer to this often-asked question.
At the end of the day, jewelry is meant to enhance your feelings, evoke emotions, provide color and joy. Whether you love earrings, bracelets, watches is actually irrelevant. Pick what makes you happy! Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful and confident. In a nut shell, You Do You! But if you do decide to explore any of these piece types and perhaps try something new, we hope it will be with us. We strive to always provide high-quality at affordable prices. (and hopefully a little joy too) 🥰
