Wish List: Necklaces

FASHIONKim & Chloe

Jewelry is something that is very cool and personal. When you slip it on, it adds a new dimension to your outfit, shows who you are as a person that day, and can also tell a story. I have always been a fan of Stella & Dot jewelry. I think that their pieces are the perfect mix of classiness and simpleness which is exactly what I am looking for. Not to mention, I am absolutely head over heels in love with their packaging. It’s "to-die-for" cuteness. This necklace is so simple, yet it can easily transform an outfit - from drab to fab. Not only can it be one big chunky necklace, but it can be altered into five different types of necklaces. It’s a Transformer necklace, I guess. Another good thing about this Stella & Dot necklace is the fact that you don’t have to worry about your gold and silver jewelry matching because it has a mix of both. Perfection? I think yes.  ~chloe

I have a favorite jeweler in NYC and have 2 pieces from them. When my husband and I were first married and living in NYC, we used to walk by Reinstein|Ross when they were in Soho and I always stopped to gush over their jewelry. It's hard to resist the window since the designs are so striking, but so are the price tags. They are definitely very special occasion pieces... as in I received them on very special occasions but wear them often because I believe if you like something, they shouldn't be saved for "one day."

The pieces were both surprises, which in itself is a surprise since I'm always ruining them by guessing them before they actually happen. I received a pair of earrings and then a necklace and charm and one day, I'd love to have another charm so that I could interchange them. And, perhaps, this would be the one I would like, but I'd love anything from Reinstein | Ross, and surprises are always welcome! ~Kim
