DIY – Easy Statement Rings!

I’ve always loved rings, so this DIY is one that I’m soooo excited about! It is ridiculously easy. We’re talkin’ even craft-challenged boyfriends & dads could do this one.

Got a friend who is never without her favorite rings? Why not make her her very own, personalized ring this holiday season? These babies are cheap, easy and the perfect way to make your gift-giving a bit more unique and personal.

Here’s how its done:

Current Obsession

On my recent vacation to Kennebunkport, I did some shopping :), which you know already from my last few posts. One of the things I found on my trip, however, was special enough to merit its very own post!

On one of our last days, we had some time before dinner to kill so we walked around cute Dock Square and wandered into a tiny little shop. The inside was very crowded with kitschy little things everywhere, and we were on our way out… BUT THEN… I saw this ring!

I’m obsessed! The green is so vibrant and looks good with my skin tone – really, I just never want to take it off.

I felt a bit like I was cheating on my new favorite jewelry brand, Chloe & Isabel, but this ring was too special not to get. Plus its always exciting when you think there’s nothing in a store for you, but then you find a hidden gem (literally!) that is perfect. Everyone should get themselves a nice gift every once in a while, you deserve it! PLUS, I love wearing this even more because it matches my boyfriend’s birth stone, which makes it all that much more special. My favorite jewelry are the pieces that have meaning behind them, because they will never go out of style. Needless to say, this ring will now be a permanent fixture on my hand.

I may have cheated a little bit on my go-to jewelry, but I haven’t forgotten & neither should you because…. until June 24th you can get 15% OFF ALL ORDERS $125+. Just check out my boutique!

Antique-Inspired Jewelry

As if you need any more reasons to start shopping with me at Chloe + Isabel – check this out! I always see super expensive designer jewels that I know look nearly identical to Chloe + Isabel pieces. This time, when I saw these Alexis Bittar antique pieces, my jaw dropped because, well, look at how similar they look…

Honestly, any chance at a style steal (saving $$$$, without sacrificing style!) I will jump at. Plus, having purchased many C + I pieces myself, I’m always surprised at the amazing quality of the jewelry for such low prices.

Nowadays, I don’t go anywhere without Chloe + Isabel as part of my outfit.

Start your own collection, or go for a sick statement piece at my boutique.

Reasons I Love My Job At Chloe+Isabel

Okay, so get this – so far my summer has consisted of wearing GORGEOUS jewelry, planning parties, styling friends with said jewelry AND making money. Whaaaaaaat??? That’s right, as a merchandiser with Chloe+Isabel, this is what my job description consists of and it. is. awesome. I’m lucky because I’m seriously obsessed with the jewelry (its not hard to be) and it practically sells itself when people see it in person. I love styling all the different pieces too and seeing how many different types of styles and looks I can come up with using the jewelry.

I’ll be posting my favorite looks that I come up with, along with REASON #1 that I love my job:

I’m always finding designer jewels that are near identical, or very similar to Chloe+Isabel jewels… only you won’t have to sell an arm and a leg to buy them! Perfect.
