CELEBRITIES ARE INTO BIG, BOLD FASHION STATEMENT NECKLACES. HOW ABOUT YOU?
Do you recognize the women above? I found these celebrities (and others) HERE while looking for images of what kinds of necklaces celebrities are wearing in 2011. The first thing that struck me, apart from the sheer size of the necklaces these gals are wearing is how similar they are to the vintage costume jewelry of the 50's and 60's or earlier, when big bold necklaces with colourful rhinestones were the jewelry accessory to wear. Sherman, Schiaparelli, Schreiner, DeLizza & Elster ... and so many more. It was their glorious, heavy necklaces, earrings and bracelets that set the style of the day, and today are so highly collectible.
The other thing that struck me was the necklace on that celebrity in the center. We have something so much like it in our DIVINE FINDS SHOP at RUBY LANE:
Hers was most likely made in the past year but ours was made decades ago from beautiful cultured freshwater pearls and 18k gold. The glorious centerpiece, which is actually the clasp, contains 1.26cts of VVS - VVS2 quality diamonds, and is enhanced further by 5-6 carats of CARVED rubies, emeralds and sapphires. Talk about exquisite ... not to mention valuable! 12 visitors to our shop have added this magnificent necklace to their wish lists or cart, and we are willing to listen to your reasonable offer on this one and only "celebrity" style necklace. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE.
Now of course, not all of us are into big and bold. Some prefer demure and dainty, and especially if the price tag is more affordable in this economy. So perhaps this stunning AMETHYST NECKLACE set in 18k gold which we've just re-introduced into our SHOP AT RUBY LANE will better suit your taste:
I just adore this one. It's 16 inches long with 7 rich purple amethysts of varying sizes set into 1 7/8" of centerpiece. Total carats of amethyst is estimated at about 14cts. The amethysts are open-backed to let their full glorious hue show through. While it's already modestly priced, we'll consider an offer on this one too. Why not slip over and CHECK IT OUT NOW.
On a final note, as hinted in the last few posts, we have begun the migration back from our DIVINE FINDS CLEARANCE CENTER at RUBY PLAZA to our regular DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY SHOP at RUBY LANE. There's still a lot of top end jewelry ON SALE at the CLEARANCE CENTER, that will not be on sale once it's back at the Ruby Lane shop. Why wait and pay more? Slip over to DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY CLEARANCE now and snag yourself a great buy!
