Pretty shiny things...


I've always been quite minimalistic when it comes to jewelry.

I'm quite picky and over time I've come to prefer having a collection of a few nice things rather than boxes upon boxes of crap that gives me green stains or bends and breaks after one use.

I just did a major jewelry clean-up last month and am now looking for some new additions.

As of late, I've really been admiring gold and white enamel combinations... here's what I've been eyeing lately:


1. 24k Gold Plated Earrings - Oscar De La Renta
2. White Arty Ring - Yves Saint Laurent

I don't usually like big earrings on myself, but these Oscar De La Renta statement earrings are just so beautiful! They really caught my eye. I'd love to check them out in person and see how heavy they are... the reason I steer away from dangly earrings is that they weigh my ears down and make me uncomfortable... but hey, sometimes you find a pair that's just so pretty - it's worth a bit of suffering :)

As for the ring, it's a pretty famous one. YSL does them in plenty of colours and I have mentioned it before. This white one has to be my favourite so far though. Again, I hate not being able to see these in person and try them out before I buy, but if I were to take the plunge on any piece this holiday season, it would probably be the YSL Arty ring!

Do any of you own one? Is it nice and solid? I hate flimsy rings!



PS: no jewelry post would be complete without a cute jewelry box!
I found this at Anthropologie the other day and I've been thinking of going back for it.
