Stephen Dweck Stone Charm Bracelet
Available at:

As hard as I try, I just can't get over my obsession with charm bracelets. They are so hot right now that I can't turn a corner without running into another one to love. From the basic $35 Juicy Couture starter bracelet, to my newest pricey obsession-- this stunner from Stephen Dweck (right)-- I want them all. It's driving me crazy.

My new baby is Stephen Dweck's Stone Charm Bracelet. The heavy, jewel-laden look reminds me of old school royalty. Elizabeth I. Marie Antoinette. Isabella. Classic riches for a classic woman. From the chocolate brown bronze open-link chain to the carved smokey quartz, black and white mother-of-pearl, and white mother-of-pearl charms, it's a stunner. I dream of ordering it on the spot. There goes rent... and student loan payments... and food and water...

A more affordable choice would be this girly-girl Versace Charm Bracelet. Not only is it adorable, it is also painstakingly on-trend with the latest Versace fashions. Leave it to Donatella. Dangling from the silver metal and black enamel chunky link chain you will find: three handbag charms from the Versace spring collection; two sandal charms from the spring collection; crystal-encrusted logo charm with two pearls; bar charm with crystals; and a revolving clasp with small medusa charm.
