To say I love jewelry would be an understatement…okay, a massive understatement that falls only slightly behind "I love shoes" and "I love handbags." Yet I never let having a lot of pieces take away from appreciating my latest addition. This gorgeous ring comes from Meghna Designs, a unique and talented collection inspired by its creator's Indian roots. Their jewelry is handcrafted in her native country by artisans using luxury materials–for example, this white ring contains a gorgeously milky agate druzy. It's really no surprise that many Meghna pieces have made their way into both print and film features (for example Blake Lively and Kelly Rutherford wore the brand's earrings in an episode of 'Gossip Girl')–I must admit I feel pretty glam wearing this one myself.
What to score a Meghna Designs piece of your very own? Well you're in luck–check back tomorrow for a very sparkly giveaway!

"Champagne" and "diamond"– the pairing immediately has me thinking swanky and sophisticated, adjectives that would also do well to describe a good cocktail ring. Case in point: this oversized bauble from Sydney Evan. Its designer is famous for her glittery evil-eye creations–all of which I adore–but the line has so many other lust-worthy pieces to offer. This black-rhodium finished ball pavéd in sparkly amber-colored stones is definitely one of them, and I can just picture how fabulous it would look accessorizing a dress and heels. I love that this ring with its round feature is from the cleverly named "sticks & stones" collection: it's one pricey pebble.
p.s. if you've been following me on Twitter & Facebook, you've seen that I've been talking about my collaboration with Sienna Ray & Co. Handbags and their [wander]lust project. One handbag–their "Makayla" in a gorgeous "Mimosa" color–is traveling the country to spend a week or so with a select group of bloggers. Check back tomorrow to see a post dedicated to how I styled their bag! (and in the meantime look at this sneak peek!) x
