This week the jewelry company is kicking off 2013 by having a celestial sale – 40% off all zodiac necklaces and birthstone rings through Jan. 14. Since the year has just begun, you can buy a special zodiac accessory for someone you know and hold onto it until their birthday. Or, just grab one for yourself – at 40% off why not?


Ippolita Jewelry Preview Event

Yesterday I attended an event to preview the latest collection by jewelry designer Ippolita. Launched in 1999, her fine jewelry collection consists of beautiful handcrafted bangles, necklaces, rings, bracelets and more, all of which evoke the flair of her native Italy. There’s something for everyone in the Ippolita collection from simple, understated pieces, to glamorous jewelry that will make sure you stand out in a crowd.

Tables were filled with the classic designer jewelry and included Ippolita's signature gold pieces.
The incorporation of bright colored gemstones in the Rock Candy collection makes the jewelry exciting and distinctive.
I am a huge fan of the Glamazon Goddess collection (pictured above), especially the oversized hooped earrings and hand-hammered linked chains. At the event, we were given the opportunity to style a model with our favorite pieces, and I made sure she had on several pieces from the Glamazon Goddess collection (I’ll post the pic of the model as soon as I get it).
I love the edgy, handcrafted look of the jewelry.
My favorite color selection from the Rock Candy collection are the Black Onyx pieces, which look so stylish and elegant. You can never go wrong with the color black.

You can find the Ippolita collection online, as well as in fine department stores and luxury retailers nationwide.
