Everyone who knows me knows I like loud jewelry. Although I use colors and different intricate styles to complete my outfit, sometimes I plan an outfit around a piece of “loud jewelry” as my centerpiece and then I let everything else come along for the ride.

I am going to start delicately for those shy gals. Francesca’s Abu Dhabi necklace is truly a great deal and full of life. It looks like something you could purchase at a market across the world. I like the small beadwork incorporated into the bib style necklace. The little beads are the backdrop to a gorgeous lining of lime green and hints of turquoise and complete the look.

I drool over nice, bold earrings even though I never seem to wear them. I admire them on others. Don’t ever underestimate Chico’s jewelry. Chico’s has some random and great pieces. I like this colorful mixed blue earring. There seems to be a trend with the blue and lime green hues right now, which I love. Sometimes clip earrings can cause some scratching but Chico’s clip-on earrings are typically protected and comfortable.

Vince Camuto really captures my style from clothes to accessories. This two tone metallic cork bangle bracelet is epic. It may not be a bright color, but it sure is loud and makes a statement. I love how Vince Camuto combines the gold tone and metal to produce the illusion of a worn finish. It is definitely a must have piece!

I found a great necklace that is perfect for an evening dress. It’s elegant and simple with a touch of color. The pearl twist necklace is an easy way to polish off a dressy outfit because of its simplicity and ability to adapt to most attire.
