Jewel of Our Eye

As we enter November our thoughts transition to gift giving for all the upcoming holidays. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too have a vast array of gemstones and jewels perfect for those we love.

img_6970

Grab a notepad and pencil and begin with a list of names that warrant such care and consideration. Shopping for pieces so personal takes time, thought, and sometimes a bit of imagination.

img_7036

When thinking of the recipient, consider their style, wardrobe, and personality. Our stores offer vintage novelty brooches and pins that go beyond the hat or lapel.

img_7039

img_7038

Silver, platinum, and gold team up with rich gemstones in larger dramatic pieces as well as the classic birthstones in light, delicate designs.

Even the youth of today have a unique sense of who they are. A gift that compliments their personal expression and uniqueness is a great gift indeed.

img_7042

img_7043

Multiple bracelets and cuffs worn together (or alone) are fun, inventive, and allow a myriad of combinations based on mood or style of dress. Vintage rhinestone pins, brooches, and pendants cover all variety of designs. Even the glittery animals will all find their rightful homes this holiday.

img_6972

Thinking about the man who has everything??

img_7112

img_7051

Symbols and designs are hand carved into bone and ivory and suspended from hand knotted cord; sharing the story and beliefs from other cultures. Great hand tooled leather belts carry a richness of history with bold turquoise and coral teamed with sterling silver. Check your list as either of these may be perfect for those connected to the sky, earth, and water.

img_7050

img_7048

Thinking outside the box, original designs in assemblage and beadwork may be used throughout the home, den, and man cave and don’t necessarily need to be worn as long as they are seen and appreciated.

img_7053

Multiple strands of beads and pearls in reds, greens, and pearlescent whites create drama simply in display. Wear thickly at the neck or interweave within a french braid or chignon as gatherings and parties fill the calendar.

img_7106

For the hustle bustle of those who crave the spirit of the season, nothing compares to another vintage collectible holiday pin. Affordable, colorful, and endless design choices make this a favorite for all ages! Use on a satin ribbon in place of a bow as you wrap gifts or pin inside a holiday greeting card!

img_7040

For the gal who loves jewelry and has a clear sense of herself there are a number of one-of-a kind pieces and you’re sure to find a wonderful piece while shopping throughout our stores.

img_7046

img_7108

Decision making may be the most difficult task at hand. Sterling silver embellishments to be worn at the neck, ears, wrist, or in the hair make a statement all their own and team well with the proverbial little black dress.
