I absolutely LOVE jewelry, but then again what girl doesn't?! I didn't get this jewelry "gene" from my mother but I definitely got it and it's a strong one! I've always loved to splurge on jewelry pieces I feel are classic and timeless and so I introduce you all to a new series over here - a sneak peek of sorts into my own jewelry box. I'll be showcasing my favorite pieces from my jewelry box and sharing my favorite jewelry designers once a week. I'll kick off today with Ippolita - a serious favorite of mine. Founded back in 1990 by an Italian gal by the name of Ippolita Rosagno, Ippolita focuses on adding a little spunk and fun to your classic, every day pieces. The gemstones Ippolita uses are oh so glamorous and the gold pieces are to die for (my favorite pieces all being rose gold!) Ippolita prices can range from the low $100s to the high four figures but there isn't a single Ippolita piece I don't love. Pictured above are my first Ippolita purchases and gifts - all in sterling silver and all with a special place in my heart. The earrings are the most recent of the purchases (from last Christmas) and I can tell you I've worn them quite a bit already. The small diamonds and the dark gray rhodium sterling silver add a bit of sparkle and fun to any outfit. Now do tell, are you a big jewelry fan as well?
