Color in jewelry enhances a wardrobe, but if you don’t want to wear costume jewelry–or if you cannot wear it due to metal sensitivities–consider fashion jewelry. And not just fashion jewelry–handmade fashion jewelry with natural elements.
Fashion jewelry? Quality jewelry made with components that are sterling silver, gold, or gold-filled. Natural elements? Yes, natural elements–semi-precious stones, nuts, seeds–with an endless variety.
Have you sworn not to wear costume jewelry? Are you a little skeptical about the quality of jewelry that is handmade or jewelry that is not classified as fine jewelry? Let me introduce you to some beautiful, semi-precious stones that will give you something to think about when it comes to quality fashion jewelry.
Semi-precious stone earrings are just one option of components for jewelry that is natural. The colors and shapes of semi-precious stones are endless.
Are you looking for pink accessories? Pink rhodonite stone earrings are absolutely lovely. Rhodonite is a beautiful pink stone (Rhodon is Greek for rose) that appears to have black veins running through it. The rhodonite stone is feminine yet very durable, and it comes in a variety of shapes. You will find quality handmade rhodonite earrings available with sterling silver or gold-filled ear wires.
Or perhaps you want beautiful earrings for your black cocktail dress. Consider handmade rainbow obsidian earrings. Rainbow obsidian is black–a by-product of lava. This beautiful stone shows flashes of black, blue and green–casting off a beautiful iridescence in the light; hence it’s name: rainbow obsidian. Rainbow obsidian handmade earrings and cocktail hour make a perfect match.
Are you casually dressed in red? Have ever seen handmade red sponge coral earrings? Sponge coral is porous like a sponge. If you really like the natural, organic look, you’ll love sponge coral earrings. When they are handmade, these casual but classy earrings can be found in sterling silver and gold-filled ear wires.
Blue lapis. Blue lapis stone earrings are a favorite with women who like semi-precious stone jewelry. Whether you’re dressing up or down, these vibrant blue earrings will gorgeously accessorize your wardrobe.
The beauty of natural stones far surpasses anything that costume jewelry has to offer. Expand your jewelry collection, but don’t leave nature out this time. Consider quality, handmade jewelry with natural elements. If you’re uncomfortable, ease into it with semi-precious stones. You won’t regret the move.
