Jewelry. My absolute favorite accessory of all time is my 100 year old diamond engagement ring. Though I have always been partial to vintage jewelry, I have recently discovered a number of modern, colorful, and inexpensive pieces to add to my collection. I hope you are able to find a few things for your jewelry box too.



Bulgari is known around the world for their magnificent Italian jewelry and luxury goods. The company is dedicated to supporting Save the Children and has created a special collection of silver jewelry to support this great organization. They hold the belief “that being part of history means being able to change it.”

Bulgari has been selected as a Sweet Peas & Stilettos featured *Shop for a Good Cause* business.


Princess Di Inspired Ring

With Will and Kate’s engagement and wedding date set (April 29, 2011 in case you were wondering), you too can get your hands on a ring inspired by Princess Diana’s and Kate Middleton’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring for only $60. Who needs prince charming when you can have a little sparkle and bling?



“The current line of Brevity jewelry explores the intersection of manmade processes and materials with forms taken from the natural world. The pieces’ simple shapes and materials complement both quiet and vibrant ensembles.”

Some jewelry is simply wearable art.  I picked out a few online stores that really fit the bill.  You will want to keep these pieces displayed on your dresser and not hide them away in a jewelry box.

Vintage & Previously Owned Jewelry

One thing I love about my antique engagement ring is the mystery about its history.  I have no idea who owned it over the years and where it has traveled over its very long life.  I also admire the amazing craftsmanship of the ring.  In a lot of ways it feels timeless, and I feel it will always be right in style.  Here are a few online shops that sell and auction pre-owned pieces and beautiful antique jewelry.
