Looking an exciting addition to your Fall wardrobe? Try a great vintage/estate watch!

How about this 1970′s Ebel with malachite and emeralds.

These days we can all use a bit more green!

Or this classically unique try-color Bulgari tubogas……

This Hermes makes an amazing layering piece……..


Or simply bring us your Rolex and let’s add a splash of color….

Not Getting Jewelry Gifts???



“I think I hurt his feelings, but honestly where am I going to wear something that fancy?”

“I like chunky things and this traditional little bracelet is just not what I would want.”

“I can’t believe he spent that much money right now.”

“If he’s going to spend that much, then I want it to be something that I really like”

Do any of these phrases sound familiar?? I’ve thought about writing this blog for a long time and just couldn’t figure out how to make it brief.

Then it hit me……..a client whose husband bought her TONS of jewelry once told me, “ANYthing my husband gives me, I LOVE”.

And it’s that simple, really.

The corollary being…..if you do NOT want jewelry as a gift, this is very easy. Simply RETURN/DON’T LIKE/DON’T WEAR what he gives you and I promise that you won’t be getting much more!

Favorite Etsy Finds

makunalma bracelets

I love looking at Etsy!  For me, it can just as much of a “time suck” as Pinterest, except – it’s better because you can actually buy stuff.  I have picked out a few of my most recent favorite things.  Take a look at them now, because by next week, I will have found something else I like even better.


This is a fabulous old pawn set – the turquoise in the cuff is gorgeous.

I am STILL not sick of summer friendship bracelets.  Neon rhinestone bracelets – who doesn’t need one or 4 or 6?

Great end-of-the-summer statement necklace – only $32!
