It's All Myne

You didn't like to share as a child. Maybe you wrote your name across your Barbie's face so that your little sister would know it was yours. Things have changed but you still get huffy when another woman walks into the club with the same handbag as you (and take yours by mistake!). Fortunately you have more stylish options for personalizing your belongings than a Magic Marker. How do sterling silver and Swarovski crystals sound? Boca Raton custom jewelry designer Constance Hart Tisdale founded It's Myne, a new concept in wearable art. Her designer charms hook onto keychains, necklaces, handbags and whatever else you want to claim as yours. Design yours today and mark your territory.

Ring it up: 60s leaf cocktail ring

Large cocktail rings are a big hit right now. Wear one with a little black dress with tall boots for a sleek Uptown look. I love this Gold 1960's leaf cocktail ring by Alexis Bittar. Made out of Lucite cabochon set in gold-plated leaf detail make it one-of-a-kind.

What your jewelry says about you

Are you East side or West side? Uptown or Downtown? Jewelry designer Clara Williams thinks she’s got you pegged. If you’re more East side, you are all about the reconstituted turquoise necklace for $725. West side gals go ga ga over the citrine necklace also sold for $725. Or has she got it all wrong?

Belisi Fashion Spotlight: Hip Chick necklace and earrings

If you’re anything like me, you like having options. Weather, moods, occasion, and color schemes dictate what accessories we wear.

Available in carnelian, onyx, antique carnelian, amazonite, and green jasper, these must-have pieces are adjustable on a 15-18" heavy fluted sterling link.
