I was recently asked about my favorite jewelry. And to be honest, I tend to fall in and out of love with jewelry. Sure, I have my pieces I always wear – my wedding rings set and my little teeny baby diamonds in my ears. However, everything else just kind of comes and goes based on mood.
With that being said, I do have a few recent jewelry purchases that I have really been loving lately.
Watch Band from Machete
Find it here: Apple Watch Band in Classic Tortoise
I wear an Apple iWatch, but when it comes to the watch bands, I prefer something that looks more like an ‘actual’ watch band rather than the silicone ones you usually see. I ordered this Machete band in the Classic Tortoise color back in March and I’ve been wearing it ever since.
I bought the 38mm/40mm/41mm version with black hardware and it cost $65 (I think at the time I found a promo code from somewhere, so it’s worth it to google for one). Along with the watch, they send you a band adjustment kit – which I used to take 2 links out so the watch band fits my wrist. After almost 6 months of daily wear, it still looks perfect!
Lightweight Leather Earrings from BEELERY
Find them here: BEELERY on Etsy
I’ve recently started really loving big earrings. However, heavy earrings drive me nutty… so I searched out the lightest – but most fun – earrings I could find. Nickel & Suede is the brand that kind of ‘started’ the whole leather earring thing, but they’re a bit pricey ranging from $32 – 45 per pair. I have had luck buying the brand on Poshmark though for more than half off retail prices.
After picking up a few pairs secondhand, I checked out some etsy artists making very similar items and found BEELERY. I bought a pair of star earrings for just $15 and another pair that combined wood and leather for just $15.50.
There are lots of super cute designs and each pair is handmade by Deborah in Austin, Texas.
Necklaces from Katia Designs
Find them here: Katia Designs
I was fully *influenced* when it comes to Katia Designs. First, they got me on Instagram. Then, Facebook. I’d click through and pick a bunch of necklaces I love, but then leave before committing. Then the whole thing would start over again until I finally gave up and completed my order.
The first necklace I ordered was the Lighting Bolt ‘design your own’ necklace ($99). I picked the Matte Black chain, the amethyst stone and a bronze finish pendant. The super cool thing about these necklaces is that they come with a special double-sided magnetic clasp that you can put on the necklace in a few different ways so that it styles differently.
I mean, how ADORABLE is this?!
I also recently made a second order that should arrive later this week. This time for the ‘Remember who the F*$K You Are’ necklace ($99). For this one I picked the multi-colored chain, blue agate stone, and bronze finish.
I love these necklaces so much that I even got an affiliate link that I can pass through to you all. If you click on any of my Katia Designs links (or this one) and use the code KARM10 you will get 10% off your order.
