The evil eye is having a serious moment right now and I can’t wait to wear my new bracelets from Liza Schwartz. She is a fabulous Miami-based jewelry and accessories designer with celeb clients like Russell Simmons and Giada De Laurentiis. Her work is inspired by her European travels and the “melting pot of cultures” in South Beach, which I LOVE.
Liza was so sweet to send me a few of her pieces of Mother’s Day and I just had to share. She offers so many chic designs at every price range that I can’t think of a better gift idea! Make sure to check out www.lizaschwartz.com for her collection. xox

I have so many statement jewelry pieces that are amazing for an event or night out but what about an earring for everyday wear? Amber always reaches for these freshwater pearl earrings from my Yours by Loren collection (on sale right now!) because they are gorgeous and go from day to night. They are a subtle accessory that adds a little something extra to any look.
I also pulled a few of my feminine favorites from other jewelry designers below – studs and hoops make classic earrings for spring! xo

Jewelry is one of my FAVORITE accessories. There are so many amazing items out there – from affordable costume jewelry to vintage investment pieces. Between earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings it’s can be fun to layer, layer (and layer!) it on but we need to remember the do’s and don’ts of women’s jewelry. Sometimes, you just want to wear it all! Since we know that isn’t an option, here’s my list of jewelry rules to show off your favorite bangles and baubles.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Women’s Jewelry
- Try wearing big statement rings on your pointer or middle finger only, save more delicate pieces for thumbs and pinkies.
- If you want to layer two pendants, go for it, but layer with one that is small, delicate and lays close to the neck. Pair that with a longer statement pendant.
- Avoid matching sets – mixing and matching brings much more interest to your pieces.
- If you want to mix metals, go for it! But, blend them together – try stacking bracelets to keep the different metals close together.
- Consider your outfit when you add your jewelry – you don’t want your jewelry to look like afterthought, right? Take a moment or two to be sure you love your choices with the outfit you selected.
But then again… rules were made to be broken, right? What about you – do you have any women’s jewelry rules to add?

If you’re feeling a bit blasé about your outfits lately, try adding different accessories, like statement pendants. When I’m in the mood for simple t-shirt and jeans, I choose to wear statement pendants and necklaces as a way to pull together my overall look. Layered or alone, nothing beats vintage statement pendants, bracelets or rings (at least in my book!) because they are so unique and amazing on their own, it almost doesn’t even matter what else you’re wearing.

Statement pendants and necklaces are not only chic when you wear them but how you store them! I keep these dress forms on display in NYC – why hide my collection when it adds such a glam touch?
