Your jewelry is something you treasure, and for good reason. There is a lot of special significance attached to jewelry, such as an engagement, a special event, a birthday, or other occasion.

Star Power

Oh, the star. This celestial symbol is one of the perennial favorite motifs of the jewelry world. And it doesn’t elicit the same polarized response in jewelry lovers as, say, the heart.

I’m a big fan. And this spring, there’s no hotter way to wear the tassel trend than on yo’ jewelry. It all started, as a jewelry trend blog post is wont to do, with a Tumblr post: And today, for Cyber Monday, Raymond Lee Jewelers is offering plenty of special tasseled goodness for 40% off, thanks to Italian design house Officina Bernardi.
