Stella & Dot Bold Statements

Whenever I post I generally try to highlight the less expensive pieces in the Stella & Dot Collection so you all can see just how affordable the collection really is but every once in a while we feel like splurging so today's post is going to highlight our big ticket items.

Stella & Dot's Happy Flowers Necklace
My thoughts on this Necklace
This necklace has never been a favorite of mine in fact I don't even own it a part of my sample collection. However for some reason I feel like today for the first time I could feel comfortable wearing this necklace. Maybe it is the summer sun or the combination of colors in this necklace but today I was out running some errands and thought to myself I wish this necklace was a part of my collection. I am thinking this will be the next big addition. 

About the Happy Flowers Necklace
Inspired by two vintage brooches our designer Blythe, found in her grandmother's jewlery box. Thank you Dot for the amazing vintage style. Happy flowers dance on a 14kt gold plated chain. Genuine Mother of Pearl, resin and hand painted flowers. 18” length with a 2” extender. Lobster clasp.
This necklace IS the outfit! So what to wear it with? You'd be amazed at the range. Colors: Put it over color for a fun splash- try orange, purple, pink and yellow.  Of course, white and black look fantastic.  Necklines: Over a crew new, or against the skin on a button down or v-neck. Strapless is also stunning.

Stella & Dot's Artemus Stone Necklace

My thoughts on the Necklace
This necklace to me screams summer trip to the Jersey Shore or sitting at an outdoor cafe on South Beach. The necklace reminds me of the Ocean. This necklace is a huge statement piece that you can dress up or wear with jeans and a t-shirt. I am a hug fan of Jade every since my trips to the Jade Market in Hong Kong and I like how it is incorporated into this necklace.

About the Artemus Stone Necklace
Glimmering strands of luxe stones, hand knotted together to form beauty befitting the goddess of greenlands. Lovely green jade, lemon and smoky quartz, and chrsophase create an earthy treasure.

 Stella & Dot's St. Tropez Statement Necklace

My Thoughts on This Necklace
This Necklace is the perfect summer statement. Light and airy a mix of texture and style. Whether you are spending the day out on a boat or closer to home at lunch with your girlfriends you are sure to turn more then a few heads when you put this necklace on. I really love how the necklace is braided in this picture to add even more texture and depth to an already fantastic necklace. This is a not to miss summer piece.

About the St. Tropez Statement Necklace
A froth of sea bubbly, silk-wrapped and hand-knotted beads tumble from an ivory ribbon, hand-sewn with Swarovski crystals.
Oh-so comfy and lighter than it looks, so twist it around your neck to put the medallion right where you want it.  Goes gorgeously with flowing silhouettes and this season's color trend: grey, gunmetal grey, blush, and white.
