    I’ve been on the hunt for a pretty pair of earrings for my wedding look. The Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings would be just right.

  2. avatar Rochelle M reply

    I absolutely love the blue topaz pendant with diamonds. The simplicity of the design would make the perfect “something blue” for my wedding attire. All of the bling accessories are very understated and elegant. Thanks for the feature!

  3. avatar Amber reply

    I love the blue topaz cocktail ring, it would definitely be a statement “something blue” piece!

  4. avatar davonne reply

    I would rock the BLING! Blue Topaz Earrings with Diamonds! So beautiful and eye catching. I love it!

  5. avatar Linden reply

    It is so hard to settle on just one favorite, but I narrowed it down to the diamond or round filagree earrings…. From there, I think I need a daisy to play the grown up version of ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ except substitute in ’round, diamond, round, diamond, round….”! Either way, I’d win! LOVE this brand! Thanks for the intro… I know what will be on my birthday wish list! I only wish I’d known about them sooner so I could have ordered something for my sister’s wedding THIS weekend!!!!

    the green amythest ring is so so elegant and beautiful. thank you thank you!

  32. avatar Shari reply

    Hands-down – I love the Bling! pearl and diamond bracelet. Pearls: something so beautiful – yet the source is an “aggravation” – a tiny piece of sand. And diamonds – the strongest gem. Is it true that it comes from coal? Something so plain an uninteresting? Just like love and marriage – and life! Sometimes we have to look beyond, and deeoer into the plain, wait out the uninteresting, and make the most out of the tiny aggravations.

  33. avatar Allyson reply

    My favorites are the Bling! round filigree earrings with matching pendant. It’s a classic set that can be worn anytime of day for work or formal evening occasions. But I have to be honest, I also loved the smoky topaz ring. It is HOT!
