WOM X CHARM & CHAIN

April 30, 2015

Statement jewelry Statement earrings Statement necklace Baubles

I, like most ladies, love a little sparkle and shine.  So when one of my favorite go-to shops for all things shiny, Charm & Chain, reached out to discuss a little collaboration, I couldn’t stack my dainty midi rings fast enough.  I mean Lulu, Doloris, Kendra, Gorjana, and Dannijo, all in one glorious WOM-curated place?!  Let’s just say a girl (or any well meaning gift giver) could do some damage.

And here’s the thing; these brands, these pieces that I chose are all keepers.  They won’t fall apart after two wears, the gemstones are actual gemstones, and most are handcrafted by artisans.  In fact, many of these pieces won’t even see the light of day again once they’re sold out because the designer created them for this moment, instead of being mass produced at the lowest price point.

There are many ways to wear your baubles, but as far as my personal style goes, I like to wear jewels in the five ways that I’m sharing in the slideshow below. So be sure to click through and grab a few tips on how to style your new baubles (such as layering your statement necklaces and piling on the midi rings). 

And because Charm & Chain knows jewelry is better bought in multiples, they’re extending a very generous discount so you too can drip in jewels. Enjoy 25% off our exclusive WOM x Charm & Chain Collection or any other bauble you have your heart set on with code LOVEWOM.  So what do you say, one for me, one for Mom, one for me, one for you?!  Truly, MKR

BUTTON IT UP

BUTTON IT UP

WE ALL KNOW WHAT A FAN I AM OF BUTTONED UP BOYFRIEND SHIRTS AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE WAYS TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF THE BOY OUT OF IT IS BY ADDING A JEWELED BIBB LIKE THE CHEYENNE OR MIGHT I SUGGEST SOME TASSELS?

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING IS A GOOD THING

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING IS A GOOD THING

WHETHER IT BE BRACELETS, OR IN THIS CASE RINGS, I LOVE TO STACK THEM UP AND ON. CURRENTLY I CAN'T STOP WEARING THE YVETTE THREE BAND ON MY THUMB AND THIS SLICE DOUBLE RING. JUST CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER, STACKS OF BRACELETS AND RINGS WOULD BE THE EXCEPTION TO THE "TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING" IDEA.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

KEEP IT SIMPLE

WHENEVER THE OCCASION CALLS FOR FORMALITY I GO MY "NO FAIL" ROUTE AND KEEP IT ON THE SIMPLE SIDE. A LOW BUN, BRIGHT PINK LIPS AND A GREAT PAIR OF STATEMENT EARRINGS. BECAUSE WHEN IT WORKS, IT WORKS.

LAYER IT ON

LAYER IT ON

BECAUSE ONE STATEMENT NECKLACE IS NEVER ENOUGH, I LOVE TO LAYER THEM ON LIKE I DID HERE WITH THE GALIT AND THE AMINA. JUST REMEMBER IF YOU'RE LAYERING ON THE JEWELS KEEP THE OUTFIT ON THE SIMPLER SIDE TO REALLY LET YOUR STATEMENT SHINE.

DAINTY & DELICATE

DAINTY & DELICATE

RINGS REALLY FALL INTO TWO CATEGORIES FOR ME; GIANT COCKTAIL RINGS OR DAINTY AND DELICATE. AND WHEN WE'RE TALKING THE LATER IT'S ALL ABOUT STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE OH-SO POPULAR MIDI RING.
