Foreign Accents

If chunky winter knits don’t leave much room for bracelets and necklaces, try a bright earring that looks plucked from a foreign (and warmer!) land.

Corral and Coral

This cheeky coral color will look especially smashing against winter’s darker manicure.

Bright Parade

Wintery shades are heavy on the dark, light on the brights. Get as many hues as possible with this paint-splattered cuff.

Foreign Exchange

Bangles that would have meant a trip halfway around the world and a whole new currency are now available at the click of your mouse (thank you, internet.)

Vacation Inspired

With wind howling and snow falling, take a second to remember how it feels to pack for a summer escape. The same pieces will work just as well with blazers and cardigans.

Color Wheel

Primary colors are so…suburban. Tweak your palette with enamel pieces in chartreuse and hot pink (think how good they’ll look against winter’s black staples!)

Odd Couple

Warm wood makes these turquoise stones pop and moves it from sunshine-staple to winter chic.

Monochrome Moxie

Diamonds and pearls are great, but unexpected stones like amber and coral are especially warm this time of the year.

Step to the Bead

Rough-cut beads and lots of sparkle make this necklace perfect for dressing up casual outfits. Fitting for a sundress, we especially love it with a thin sweater.


Chan Luu tribal necklace, $190;

Urban Jungle

Leave the snow shoveling to someone else-head out on safari (metaphorically, of course) with this big game bracelet.


Kenneth Jay Lane giraffe cuff, $60;

Tribal Chic

With unusual material (rubber! Puka shells!) and spunky shades (hot pink!) this necklace looks like it had to be purchased elsewhere than the local mall.


Tory Burch woven rubber necklace, $250;

How can the earrings are so exquisite and gorgeous, when in the colorful spring, you walk in the street, wearing a pair of such pretty earrings and a piece of graceful dress, you must attract numerous eyesights, I will dress up like that, and also match my Tom ford sunglasses that just bought on very stylish and cool.

This is very beautiful. And the color is looking very nice. I also plan to buy the earring. Factoring Company.
