• Jewelry Styling Tips and Tricks










    Jewelry is so much more than simple accessories or an after thought that you add to an outfit before you head out the door. Jewelry is like the icing on a cake -- for without it an outfit may be beautiful -- but let's face it, it's also a bit blase. Jewelry can add interest, a pop or two of color, and dazzling accents. Here are a few jewelry styling tips to help you choose the right pieces, for the right occasion and they will help you make the right statement.


    Jewelry Styling Tips

  • Gifts Fit for a Princess ~ Kate is Turning 30!



    (photo via www.biography.com)

    Happy Birthday Princess Kate!!! Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge is turning 30 and we think that she is a true Charming Chick. She is beautiful, sweet and is quickly becoming a style icon.  Reports say that she has decided to forgo a lavish and loud birthday party and instead has opted for a quiet celebration. One of the things we long about the Duchess is how conservative she and her husband Prince William are -- so much so that they decided not to have servants. How very common. We love it! She has also been spotted grocery shopping among the common folks and has bought clothing off the rack. The best thing about Kate is that she seems to be a really down to Earth royal.


    At Charming Chick we carry many items that any frugally minded, fashionable princess would love. Today we will feature some of our most popular princess items in honor of Kate's  30th birthday.




    What does every princess need? Princess cut earrings of course! These gorgeous princess cut CZ earrings are set in beautiful .925 sterling silver. They are perfect for everyday wear and look just as stunning with formal evening wear -- and a tiara! If your princess is having a birthday these would make an excellent gift.




    This is a necklace fit for royalty but at a price anyone can afford. It is set in stunning sterling silver and features an exquisite five-point crown with dazzling CZs. Another notable feature is the toggle clasp. It adds a unique element to this already special piece.  The crown measures 3/4" and the necklace is 18" long which is a great complement to almost any neckline. This piece usually ships in about 3-5 days so you'll want to give yourself plenty of time before ordering.




    If you buy the necklace above you will definitely want to add these gorgeous matching earrings to complete the look. Treat yourself or someone you love. This set is completely versatile and looks just as great with a pair of jeans as it does with an evening gown. As with the necklace, these earrings are set in precious sterling silver and when the light hits the CZs the sparkle is sure to catch everyone's eye. They look like a million bucks but are very affordable.

    Because your earrings are speaking to people. You may not realize it but it is true.  Sure, for some people they are simply an every day fashion accessory. They put them on each morning without really thinking about it.  However, others might pour over their extensive earring collection trying to select THE perfect pair. Are you trying to send a message with your earrings?



    can be simple,

    or sophisticated.



    They can give people clues about you, like:

    a sports fan,



    you hope for peace,




    or that you are a SURVIVOR!



    They can also be festive,

     If you love your earrings, you'll also want to be sure that you store them properly. You can store them in a  jewelry box  with soft lining. Just hook each pair into each other, so they stay together and are easier to find. Be sure not to lay stones on top of each other. You don't want them rubbing together and getting scratched.

    If you have sterling silver earrings, you'll want to store them with anti-tarnish stripes. This will help them to keep them in ready to wear condition. You should have a polishing cloth available though, you can just give them a quick wipe to shine them up quickly.


  • Tips for Organizing and Storing Your Jewelry

    Happy 2011 from Charming Chick! The beginning of the New Year, is a perfect time to get organized. As you start getting all of your things cleaned up and in order -- it is very important that you do not forget about orgnanizing your jewelry as well.

    Perhaps you were lucky enough to acquire some new treasures over the holiday – if so you probably need to rearrange things a bit to make room for them.

    Also, properly storing your jewelry will not only keep it safe and easy to locate; it will also extend the life of your dazzling beauties.

    One of first things you'll want to do is to get a jewelry box, so you rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc., don't touch each other or get tangled up. Metal can scratch metal, certain stones can scratch each other and chains can become tangled, kinked or broken.

    Here are some tips on keeping your valuables in great condition.

    Necklaces should be stored flat or hanging up. This will prevent them from becoming tangled and knotted; which can then weaken the links and cause your chain or necklace to break. Not only will you be left with a broken chain -- but it is also very possible that the bauble you had hanging from it, could become lost or damaged.

    Rings should be stored in a box that is lined with a soft material. They should not touch each other if possible -- and any ring that has a stone should be inserted into the ring holder, stone side up.

    Earrings can be hooked together so that pairs do not become separated. You can lay them in a lined box and ensure they aren’t touching --  or you can get earring holders; which you can fasten your earrings into.

    Sterling Silver when storing sterling silver you’ll want to make sure that it doesn’t become overly tarnished. To do this you can purchase silver protection strips; which can be placed in your jewelry box to prevent to prevent tarnishing. They do this by safely absorbing the sulfur in the air.

    Another way to easily maintain your silver is to take it out once a month and polish it with a silver polishing cloth. It’s easy, it keeps your jewelry looking stunning, and it will help prevent permanent damage.

    Traveling with your fine accessories also takes some planning and care. There are many soft travel case or jewelry-rolls which are nice for storing your items and keeping it safe from damage. Before you plan your next trip, you should definitely get one of these.

    One other thing you must keep in mind when organizing and storing your jewelry -- is to make sure it isn’t ever placed in direct sunlight or anywhere it might be subjected to extreme temperature changes.

    And finally, make sure to place your jewelry box in a safe and secure location.
