"Don't Be Fooled By the Rocks That I Got"

One of my favorite things in the world is jewelry. I make it, I buy way too much of it, and I look at tons  of posts about it on Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr. (I'm on that #armcandy flow, yo.) However, there's some of it that's a cut above the rest. Here's some of the pieces that I can't help but rock.

Hamza/Evil Eye; For those of you who don't know what a hamza or an evil eye is, right not you're going to wish that you did. The Hamza, and the evil eye are pieces that are made that ward away evil spirits. I prefer the hamza, because the Evil Eye basically scares me. I wear my Hamza necklace pretty much, but I also have a few bracelets.

Opal; Dear future husband, if you ever need an idea for an engagement ring, get me an Opal. I love how opals are mysterious and cool looking. Sometimes, I wish that I was born in October just so I can wear the stone without shame. I also am a fan of blue opal which is basically the same thing, just blue.

Alex and Ani; Everyone and their mama seem to have these bracelets. But, the cool thing is that no matter how many you have stacked on your arm, it's still something that's tailored to your individual taste. I also like it that each bracelet has a separate meaning for you. Check out another Alex and Ani post here! I have 13 currently, however only 10 of them are pictured.

Pearls are classy. That is all.
Until recently, I've never taken my Pandora bracelet off. I've gotten mine for my 13th birthday, and I've kept it on  ever since. Each of the charms is something that is meaningful, because they were all holiday and birthday gifts. Unfortunately, the clasp broke earlier on, and I have yet to replace it.
Claddaugh Ring

Even though I'm not Irish, I love them. I currently have five (the latest pictured above.) The Claddaugh has three parts-hands, a heart, and a crown. It's used to display Marital status, so if the crown is facing towards me as seen here, then it means that I'm single, and if it's the other way around it means that my heart belongs to someone. The hands symbolize friendship, the heart symbolize love, and the crown symbolizes loyalty. More information about the ring can be found here!
Rings In General;
I just love wearing multiple rings. They tend to change over time, but my favorite way to wear one is on my thumb.

Heart Toggle Bracelets:
I only recently got into it. I wanted a Tiffany one, but they are super expensive. I have the Kohl's one and I'm in love with it. It's small and it doesn't get in the way when I'm at school. It's really well made, and it came really fast. I like these bracelets because they are very cute. I also have a smaller one from Juicy, which has a ton of really cute ones for less than $50.

What's your favorite kind of jewelry?


  1. We have very similar taste in jewelry. I'm wearing a claddagh ring right now. I love my Alex and Ani bracelet! I'm currently looking for a hamsa necklace, but I can't seem to find one that I love. Cute post!

    1. That's awesome! and thank you! I would try etsy. They have a TON of awesome ones! :D
