Will Jewelry Cure a Head Cold?

Bleah. Style Spy has a cold. And as everyone knows, summer colds are the worst. But I brightened up a little when I saw this pretty thing in Lucky Magazine:

What a great-looking ring that is. And what is really, really cool is that this ring, and most of the other jewelry on this site ( is customizable. You can choose the metal and also different combinations of stones. How cool is that?

How cool also is this beautiful cuff?

Oh, that's pretty. And you could potentially get it in silver, if that's your metal of choice. With different colors of stones. I don't wear silver, so I rarely post it here because it just doesn't catch my eye as much, but I think it's really clever of this designer to offer all her pieces in a choice of metals. It's terribly frustrating to find the perfect piece of jewelry in the wrong metal.

Nifty necklace. You could also get this in silver with a green jade briolette, for example.

Another great feature of this jewelry? Very reasonable prices! The ring above retails for $86, which seems like an awfully good price for a customized piece of bling with semi-precious stones. I was this close to ordering one to see if it helped with my sniffles, but I decided against. Remember that cool chunky Alexis Bittar lucite ring I posted about a few weeks ago? And the gorgeous faceted paisley Kenneth Jay Lane number? Well, darling friends treated me to them as birthday gifts and I've had very happy fingers ever since.

::sniffle, snork:: If only my sinuses felt as good as my fingers...

Love the lucite rings! (Is the paisley one lucite too or glass?) Happy birthday, by the way!

WW -- yes, the paisley is lucite, too (or "resin," as the copy has it: it's all just different words for "plastic") and a good thing, too, because I would have shattered it by now if it were glass. It's a big honkin' ring, it tends t bump into things. Not that I care...

Pretty things.

You evil girl! Quit showing me these gorgeous things that take my dollars away from precious shoes!

Bad bad bad!

Oh! That cuff is gorgeous!...How I would get it if I hadn't just gone on a shoe-shopping-madness for fall.

That gorgeous brass cuff may have been available in silver when you posted this, O Spy, but it wasn't when I clicked like the wind today after reading your entry. Which fills me with sadness, because silver is my metal and this big-boned girl LOVES a cuff bracelet.

I am crying tears of sadness.
