There are some items that come down the runway that I fall in love with. I go completely gaga over. Yet in my heart of hearts, I realize I would never actually wear. Case in point: Lanvin's statement necklaces in the form of words. Beyond and Cool have my vote. And yes, they are seriously cool. However, I don't think they belong on anyone but a model. Coming down the runway. Showcasing a designer's collection. Going for major impact.

I am smitten with this fierce Italian-made tiger leather cuff by MRS Design. It's crazy fantastico! Just think, you wouldn't have to worry about what you were wearing because no one would be able to take their eyes off of your wrist!

Margherita Racchelli Steiner has always had a great passion for art. And in 2010, she decided to launch her first line of jewelry. The MRS Design collection is modern and nostalgic. Her mix of materials makes every piece truly unique.

Just like this cuff with calf leather, satin and Swarovski crystals finished with gold plated brass hardware. The color is enough to send me overboard. Love.

Perfect with my all white ensembles
to capture even more attention.

Call them little littles. Dainties. Or, tiny pendant necklaces. Whatever you fancy, they have made quite an impression this spring.

For as small in size as they are, their presence is huge. And no designer has embraced them in a more beautiful way than Meredith A. Jackson. I love the entire selection of little littles, but this one is extra fabulous as it ties in the color of the year — emerald!

Try on a delicate necklace for a change this season. It may become your favorite accessory yet.

Want to take your outfit to the next level? A statement necklace always does the trick. One of the easiest ways to amp up any ensemble is with a piece of jewelry that packs major punch.

I am digging Venna's entire collection for spring, but especially this one. It pulls in such fun color. This ornate necklace features oval and rectangular-cut sapphire and emerald colored crystals decorated with vibrant yellow and red beads and metallic bronze accents. Sure to spice up any look!

So far, I'm not a fan.

I find it interesting that many of these Gaia Repossi ear cuffs have sold out. Even this Berbère 18-karat gold diamond ear cuff at almost $6500. The four hooped cuff (also shown below) is almost $13,000. Of course, several versions come without diamonds. But honestly, I think I'll leave them right where I found them. Some trends are just not worth investing in.
