Did you know today’s National $plurge Day? Now you do! So screw your bills, never-ending student-loan payments, and other financial woes and spend that ca$h money. What better way to enliven your ensemble and celebrate National Splurge Day than with some brand-new jewels? The IRS is giving a quite a few of us $600 after all, so try using it for its intended purpose and stimulate that economy. Unlike a shirt at H&M or a massage, jewelry lasts forever, so it's a great way to indulge. Here are a few pieces we’re eyeing right now:
Arena Barbie Cluster Earrings from Greenwich Jewelers
Price: $285 (one for you and a friend! Or two for yourself!).
The eighteen-karat-gold branches drop about three inches from your lobe, for a simple and sweet look.
Black Rhodium Spur Ring by Hannah Martin
This long ring stretches across the fingers, which turns out looking more refined than overbearing. Plus, there are three-quarters carats of brilliant-cut red rubies hidden inside.
Pendent Necklace by Bulgari
From Bulgari's new color collection, this necklace has an eighteen-karat-white-gold chain, three blue topazes, and two amethysts.
Rococo Mirrored Stone Cuff by Tom Binns
This ornate piece is an eye-catcher, with a circumference of six and a half inches. You can even check yourself out in the attached mirror.
Fire Opal Chain by Ten Thousand Things
This fifteen-and-a-half-inch eighteen-karat-gold chain features a delicate strand of pale fire opals. Usually fire opals have a deep orange or red color, so we like this variation.
Stacked Rings by Michelle Fantaci
Price: Starting at $1,250
Homegrown: Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Michelle Fantaci just launched her fall 2008 line, which you can buy made-to-order at Butter. We love the delicate, handmade feel of her pieces, especially the various stones in the top ring of this stack. —Sharon Clott
