Four Finds: A Girl’s Best Friend

Marilyn Monroe sang it best: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Who I am to argue? But did you know that when her estate was auctioned off decades later that most of Marilyn’a jewelry was actually costume? Few of the pieces were actual diamonds. Be it diamonds, crystals or rhinestones, here are a few pieces that sparkle that I think the blonde bombshell herself would approve of. Happy Friday.

The Earrings

I blame Oprah for my unhealthy obsession with diamond studs. These Princess-Cut Diamond Solitaire Studs from MyJewelryBox.com may not be as big as Harpo’s, but in my book, 1.0 carats will do.

The Ring

Putting a new spin on diamond rings, this Digby + Iona Diamond Signet Ring from Catbird NYC comes with wax so you can make your seal official on your correspondence.

The Bracelet

This Swarovski Arty Large Bracelet is one big dose of sparkle. And the black leather cuff gives it edge.

The Necklace

A statement necklace with diamond-esque appeal is exactly what you need to gives casual looks a kick. This Crystal Beam Necklace Set from InPink does the job.
