One of my favorite colors this time of year is emerald and Avon’s Sparkling Royale Collection does not disappoint. They’ve even gone a step further by combining the rich green with royal blue sapphires and clear crystals in extravagant broach-like clusters. This piece is absolutely stunning and if you decide to part with it (you probably won’t), the receiver of this gorgeous gift will be speechless.
The set is great for women of all ages because it is trendy, dramatic and elegant. The first time I wore it I received so many compliments! My mother-in-law told me that she saw it in Avon’s brochure a couple weeks ago but questioned the quality so I let her examine it up close and she was impressed by its beauty.
The necklace ($89.99) looks fabulous against solid colors and you can even wear it with jeans and a nice blouse. The thick velvet cord is non-traditional but unique and has a 1 cm extender for length adjustment. The set also comes with delicate teardrop earrings.
I highly recommend adding the Sparkling Royale Statement Studs ($9.99) to your collection. These are a bit larger and the rectangular emeralds are framed by glittering diamond-like crystals that make a bold statement, especially when your hair is in a graceful up-do. These beauties are perfect for December/winter weddings or you can gift them to the bride!
The sparkling bracelet ($29.00) and regal ring ($24.99) will catch everyone’s attention as you clink champagne glasses on New Year’s Eve or shake hands with new friends.
The ring looks large on my finger without being gaudy and the variety of stones surrounding it is aesthetically pleasing. The collection is affordable but looks expensive so I can take it on vacation (instead of packing my real jewels) and wear it to dinner without worrying about it being lost or stolen.

I’m not one for antiquing or thrift stores but while desperately trying to find a new battery for my phone (aka my lifeline), I stumbled across a jewelry display in a flea market selling traditional designs from India. I spotted these intricate earrings a mile away and just had to have them! They cost just $10.00 and don’t hurt my ears.
Avon also sent me the Festive Red Flower Earrings ($34.99) and I wore them to an event the very same day. I didn’t have anything like these in my collection and they are super cute!
When you want something simple for every day wear, these black earrings from Joe Fresh are quite stylish and they go with almost everything.
Joe Fresh has a lot of modern accessories from just $10.00-$24.00 including this long beaded chain necklace that goes great with sweaters, dresses and most tops for a chic layered look. (Available at Shoppers Drug Mart).
