I typically gravitate towards one or two necklaces and rings and wear ‘em with nearly everything, BUT I also happen to think that jewelry is a lot like a pair of shoes – you can never have enough. A pair of earrings and a necklace can really transform the look of an outfit, so it doesn’t hurt to have a lot of options on hand if you can swing it. Right?
With that in mind, I rounded up five of my absolute favorite places to shop for jewelry. And in return, I’d love to hear your suggestions too. I always have room to bookmark another.
You may know Kate’s brand under it’s previous name, For Me, For You jewelry. The name has since changed but the seasonal jewelry collections you’ll find in her shop are as hip as ever. All necklaces are handmade by Kate in Los Angeles, California.
Everything at Poketo feels like a tiny work of art, whether it’s wearables or accessories for people and their homes. But lately, I’ve been going to there for jewelry more often than not, to browse the newest pieces from independent designers they carry. Definitely worth a look if you want something unique and fun.
3. Pour Porter
This shop is amazing! Tightly curated, Pour Porter (pronounced Pour Por-tay) is run by a husband and wife in the Denver, Colorado (love that) that work day jobs while running their online boutique. I don’t know how they find the time to do both, but I am so glad they make it happen because I adore this shop. Lots of other cool goods here too, aside from jewelry.
Okay, okay. Many of the pieces at Catbird are out of my price range, BUT I have so many pieces from this Williamsburg shop on my wishlist I had to include them. The rings are my fave, especially this one.
5. SHIP & SHAPE
SHIP & SHAPE has a great mix of handmade finds from designers and makers you know and ones that you soon will. The founders invite their favorite artists to contribute exclusive items to seasonal collections to freshen things up at the start of each season. P.S. I have had this necklace in my cart for way too long. I need to just but it already!
Where do you like to shop for jewelry?
I did a little shopping this weekend and picked up a super comfy dress (that I am totally planning on wearing nearly everyday). But I think I caught the shopping bug because I came home and started prepping/writing this week’s 5 Faves and somehow came away with a wish list the size of Miami.
I don’t want to overwhelm you, or even begin to think about all the shops I just bookmarked, so let’s just start with five…
I am kind of obesessed with the small batch collection of Minneapolis-based bag shop MATINE. Aside from the cognac and gold one above , this scallop clutch is definitely on my wishlist.
2. YOUNG FRANKK
If I could, I would buy every single piece in the Young Frankk shop. Every necklace, ring, and bracelet is handmade in Richmond, VA and I love all of them (but this one is my fave if I can only choose one).
Fall is coming! And depending on where we’ll soon be moving (I still don’t know believe it or not), I may have to stock up on knitwear. These boot cuffs would have been a life saver when I was living in Seattle. BONUS: Receive a 10% discount when you enter coupon code LUMIPNS at the checkout.
4. Leah Goren
Mrs.Pomeranz will always be on my list of faves, creating unique “new look” silhouettes for dresses and skirts using sewing techniques from the 50s. The ‘mini’ collection is my favorite.
That’s it for today’s shopping list.
Did you have a good weekend?
I went to bed last night thinking about pretty little things and woke up and wrote this post. Here are the things that I’m finding oh so pretty this week…
I wish I could travel to half the places that Georgianna has captured with her camera lens. Her travel photography shop has pages of romantic imagery from across the globe (lots of photos in Europe).

The jewelry from Fruition is a little bit modern. And even though I would put these into more of a classic-vibe category as opposed to just pretty, the product shots are dreamy – wrangling Frutition into the ‘Oh So Pretty’ roundup.
3. Posh Peanut Kids:
The girlie, vintage-inspired rompers and accessories at Posh Peanut Kids are embellished by hand (all handmade). The lace is lovely.
4. Jenny Present:
I really like the classic / feminine edge pieces from jewelry designer, Jenny Present. And again, the product shots are beautiful. Get 10% off anything at www.jennypresent.com with coupon code PNS10 at checkout.
And finally, I see a little bit of whimsy peeking through in all of Melissa’s photographs. The lighting is always gorgeous and she manages to make things like cupcake liners look pretty! Receive 20% off at Melissa Lund with coupon code PNS20 at checkout.
What shop(s) do you think is oh so pretty this week?
Today, lets celebrate the small…because tiny things can pack a big punch!
This shop is so cool. Pass miniature sweets and yummy treats on handcrafted, marble plates and platters from Marblellous at your next dinner party.
Balancing organic and geometric design, Michelle Starbuck makes some really interesting and unique jewelry. I want that tassel necklace…
Browse screen printed pillowcases, kitchen towels, market totes, prints, and brooches at Urban Bird & Co. I really like the new totes and pouches for back to school.
Shop the France flea markets without leaving the house. Callaloo Soup Vintage features carefully selected vintage collectibles, craft supplies, and more. Enter code PAPERNSTITCH15 for 15% off your entire order. Code will be valid until August 30, 2012.
And finally, pick up limited edition paper goods from 3 Girls + a Goat: cards, tags, postcards and paper garlands made of new and recycled materials. Use the coupon code PNS2012 to receive 20% of your order at the checkout.
How will you celebrate small things today?
If you can’t find what you are looking for online or at a local shop, make it yourself! Right?
