Mixed Metals

Recently, on one of those dreadfully rainy days, I put on my happiest vintage plaid coat and not a water repellent raincoat.  I was throwing my practical side a challenge and I have to say it felt pretty good to be wearing a cheerful, colorful coat among a see of grey, black and navy.  There is something to be said for color psychology! Besides my cute coat, I wanted to show you the gorgeous Monica Vinader bracelets.  The coolest thing about her jewelry is the movable charm, on the bracelets and necklaces, that lets you tighten or loosen the chains to fit. I love the friendship bracelets with either a chain or cord strap that can be monogrammed with something special. They really are the best present for a great friend, sister, and/or your mother.

  1. […] I found the perfect present for you to give (and receive) for Valentines Day!  Actually, I found two present ideas from Monica Vinader; the diamond alphabet necklace and the Fiji Friendship Bracelets. The bracelets are available in three different finishes, with either diamonds, chain or braided cords in a multitude of colors. If that wasn’t enough to chose from, you can have it engraved on the bar and/ or on the toggle. It is a wonderful present and one that I would love to have (hint.. hint.)   If a necklace is more appropriate, the diamond alphabet pendants are gorgeous! Each letter is special on its own or can be joined with other pendants if you would like to create your own necklace.  I have bought several pieces from Monica Vinader to give as presents and the process was so fast and easy.  I received what I ordered before the scheduled delivery date and the packaging was so chic. The perfectly wrapped present!  For other ideas you can see additional pieces featured here and here.. […]
