Spotlight on: Madewell Jewelry
I've always loved statement jewelry. In fact, when it comes to jewelry my mantra has always been the bigger the better. The problem I run into with statement jewelry though is that it is either extremely pricey for the costume jewelry materials that are used to create the pieces or extremely inexpensive and flimsy so it just looks cheap. A statement necklace from edgier designers like Fallon, Alice + Olivia, Robert Rodriguez, Erickson Beamon, or ABS by Allen Schwartz will run you nearly $300. But at long last I have found a great mid-range brand with a similar aesthetic -- Madewell. Each of the pieces listed above and below are $118 or less! If you haven't checked out Madewell's jewelry before, give it a shot at www.madewell.com or www.shopbop.com. Also, get free shipping on any purchase on www.madewell.com from now until October 6th with code "YESPLEASE." (There is always free shipping on www.shopbop.com.)
