Rhumba! Item of the week: Swarovksi Rhinestone Y Necklace

I stumbled upon this lovely necklace while browsing through the newest items at Rhumba! Jewelry (of which, there are quite a few).  It's beautiful and unique, and I just had to take a closer look at it. The necklace features sparkling Swarovski rhinestones in bright spring colors in a unique modern design, but with antique-y elements, and it's put together in such a way that looks almost steampunk - I just adore it! AND it comes with matching earrings. FABULOUS!

I would wear these pieces together, but they'd look just as fabulous worn separately. These are great pieces to dress up jeans. I have a some skinny jeans and a slouchy jade green cardigan these will pair nicely with.

How would you wear the Rhumba! Item of the week? Let us know in the comments below! ;)

Spring 2011 Jewelry Trends

Spring 2011 Jewelry Trends
Spring is coming! And with it, comes color, sparkle and shine.
Accessories are a great way to update your wardrobe without losing your shirt, so to speak. So if you're looking to save a few coins, we say, invest in accessories.
But where to start? The jewelry fashion forecast for this season is: a lot of gold tone accessories, along with greens, purples, plums, and oranges. Coral adds an element of freshness to an ensemble, and is a great color for spring that compliments nearly any skin tone. Large chunky plastic chains make a great statement, as do cocktail rings on your pointer or middle finger. Multiple chains are still in style, in metals or with natural elements like leather, wood, or bone. Chandelier earrings are always a must, and bracelets are big! Layer chunky bracelets or group smaller bangles to add texture to your outfit.
We've assembled some faves from the Rhumba inventory for you - although this is only one-gazillionth of the stock, so be sure to check in frequently to see the latest fashionable finds!

Jewelry Trendspotting: Pyramid Motif Jewelry

A jewelry trend we've noticed lately that we love is pyramid motif jewelry. Whether it's pyramid stud earrings or rows of rhinestone paved pyramids as a bracelet, we just love it!  The accessories add texture and glam & a little bit of edgy-ness to any outfit!

Why Jewelry is the Best Valentine's Day Gift

Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day with a significant other or spend the day denying that it's a real holiday, it's a day you're going to want to make yourself feel special and look your best.

Don't deny it. Valentine's Day happens whether you like it or not, and it's the best time to show your affection - whether it's to someone special, or yourself!

Jewelry is the best way to do just that (and it's not just because we love jewelry and that's all we talk about).

Here's Why:

1) No calories.

Just when you're starting to get rid of those extra holiday pounds, your special someone hands you a two-pound, heart-shaped box of delicious sugar and fat. What you're really being gifted is two more hours on the treadmill. Appreciate the thought, honey, but, were you really thinking?

2) Jewelry has staying power.

Flowers will fade, but jewelry can last forever!  You'll remember the feeling you got when you received your jewelry each time you wear your jewelry, year after year.

If we were receiving a bouquet, we'd rather it be made of flower brooches. ;)

3) You can say a lot without saying a word.

Not good with words?  Especially on special occasions?  A flimsy card just doesn't have that same oomph.  That's why we suggest you turn to jewelry.

4) It's easier to surprise someone with.
Putting a box of chocolates in your pocket while you have dinner will only make you very uncomfortable, and when you pull them out, they'll be all melt-y! SURPRISE!

5) It'll fit.

6) Perfume stinks.
Unless you know their favorite scent, investing hundreds into a pretty bottle can be treacherous. Can you afford to make that gamble?

Everybody deserves a little something to make them feel special and nothing shows the world how that special someone shines better than some extra sparkle.

So this Valentine's Day, as you search for gifts to treat the special people in your life (and that includes yourself!) we hope you make the right choice!

Rhumba! Item of the Week - Festoon Necklace Set

Even though we love every piece of jewelry for sale on Rhumba! Jewelry, every so often we like to showcase one of our 6,000+ items, and tell you why we love it so much. 

This week we feature this fabulously fashion-forward item:

Rhinestone Multi-chain Tassel Festoon Necklace Set

What it is: A festoon necklace set in metallic black, gray and hematite color rhinestones in patinated brass colored metal.  This glorious necklace set is a quality, contemporary take on the Victorian festoon necklace with its draped chains, medallions of darkly shaded rhinestones and dangling central tassel.
The earrings match the brooch decoration, mirroring the same style and dark rhinestone sparkle.

Why we love it: I really feel like this necklace is a perfect example of what's next in fashionable statement accessories.  It blends current trends of mixed metals, brooch-like decorations gathering pieces of necklaces, and fringe (with the tassel) - but presents them all in a new way.  Or rather, a sort of retro way, since the festoon style has been around for over a century, and have been a bold accessory since the Queen of England had the style commissioned.  Wear the necklace and earrings together for a bold and extra bling-y look, or wear them separately with any of your favorite clothes. The piece'
s sparkly neutral rhinestones make them both easy to pair with anything in your closet.  For real, you're going to see these necklaces in next year's fashion magazines, I'm sure.
