Wishlist Wednesday: Statement Jewelry

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

I don't rock a lot of jewelry during the week. At most, I will wear my wedding rings and understated earrings.

But these days, I'm craving pieces with more heft, personality and humor. For this Wishlist Wednesday, here are a few pieces I'm aching to buy...

Dirty Librarian Chains necklace @ Dream Sequins
Dirty Librarian Chains - Call Number necklace

Swell Vintage necklace @ Dream Sequins

Those skull drop earrings are my favorite! I didn't know you had a tough side to you, DS!

FabBlab said...

The second piece! *drools*

Love these pieces! I am like you- I don't wear a lot of jewelry during the week either, but those modern rock studs are so cute!

During the week I only wear my wedding/engagement ring. LOVE statement jewellery too! I saw a gorgeous Louis Mariette headband (sold out on NAP, boo hoo), wondering if they'll restock (although I don't use headbands, it was just too gorgeous!). I have also had my eye on a Swarovski chunky glacier ring for over a year, and 'unrealistically', I am drooling over Oscar de La Renta, Lanvin, & Marni statement necklaces... :)

I just love vintage inspired jewelry! Haven't seen much marcasite and I think it should be brought back.

Adriana Ximenes said...

wonderful all models.

WendyB said...

There's a sad lack of WendyB jewelry on this list. *sob* I'll just have to try harder!

coco said...

The first necklace is super cool.

Sasha K. said...

Love those Metalicious studs.

The Haute-Shopper said...

I'm definitely feeling all the statement necklaces. Necklaces and cuffs are the only thing I prefer big (rings and earrings - I usually stick to the same jewelry I wear every day). I recently bought a necklace that's made of kilt pins.. it's awesome but weighs a ton. Oh, and a question... is that 'dirty librarian.... chains' or 'dirty.... librarian chains'? ;-) Just checking...

dapper kid said...

That first necklace is SO incredible!! I'm not sure guys can really stray into the realm of statement jewelry, but I have been on the hunt for my perfect understated necklace for quite a while now.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Wow,the first one is FABulousss...
xo*

Kristin said...

Ohhhhhhh, those studs must be mine!

Shopn'Chomp said...

"Dirty Librarian Chains"...just a name is hawt! ;-) Great statement pieces.

GG said...

The skulls are so cute!

lisa said...

Definitely cocktail rings and big bold statement earrings.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I love these...the bigger, bling(ier), the better for me!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I love that first necklace! Gorgeousness!

Sheena said...

Loving those studs! And the Dirty Librarian chains! I'm more into statement jewelry as we go into the fall as well. Especially since my clothing is going to be more understated and simple this Fall.

xtinagirl said...

I'm totally diggin' the vintage necklace with the pearl drops. Super cute!

I want big gaudy jewelry! That's on my list for the summer :]

Dream Sequins said...

Thanks for your rock and roll comments, everyone :)

Like I said on Twitter today-- I would like to offer the opportunity for someone to custom design a necklace or piece for Dream Sequins. I will buy it, wear it and promote the heck out of your label!

xx D

P.S. I saw some chain necklace from topshop that was outrageously low. I'm tempted. Grrr!

@Diana: The skulls are hilarious. They make me laugh.

@Brunch at Saks: I was thinking the studs were kind of recession friendly!

@Brigadeiro: I had forgotten about statement headbands! OOH.

@WickedHalo: Could totally see you rocking the zipper necklace!

@Sher: I like the look of marcasite, too.

@Shop'nChomp: Serially. I like them.
