Today I'm wearing a new-ish cocktail ring for the second day in a row.
I love this thing. It's faux gold and crystals, goes with black or brown (the stone is a brown/amber color) and the prongs are claws! So ridiculous and obnoxious that I love it.
Where did I pick up all this bling? I snagged this bauble at a Stella & Dot trunk show a coworker of mine hosted last month. I'd been invited to a few S&D parties before but hadn't given in. Especially since this was an opportunity to get to know a colleague better, I bit the bullet.
I knew before I walked in the door that I would want to buy something or feel like I should buy something. I told myself I would try to spend less than $35. That's how it usually goes with me and in-home parties. I don't go to many but know that when I do, I'm going to want to buy something.
In the end I spent about $56 on this ring, but i like it very much. You can snag Stella & Dot earrings for less – or maybe a clearance ring, but the necklaces will run you much more. While it's not inexpensive by any stretch, Stella & Dot's stuff is actually very cute. And I have to give to the company for really putting thoughtful, classy and creative touches into everything they do (even down to the packaging your jewelry arrives in).
